Veronica--[The sky] is very dark above the flagpole, and there has appeared on the right side of the flagpole a cross. But the cross is black in color. It, it is quite a frightening-looking figure.
Now Our Lady is coming over to the right--no, the left side of the flagpole. She's very beautiful; Our Lady is very beautiful. Oh, now She's bending over, and She's saying:
Our Lady--"My child, you are observing conditions upon earth. Should they continue, a heavy penance will be given to mankind.
"We have given you in print many photographs of the coming Chastisement. Scoffers will close their eyes and be blinded to the manifestations.
"You, My child, Veronica, will not become discouraged. You will continue your mission undaunted by the opinion of man. The Father is in full control of earth's situation. In the war of the spirits, many true souls will carry heavy crosses."
BALL OF REDEMPTION
Veronica--I see a large ball. It's very hot. The brilliance hurts my eyes, burns my eyes. It's like a ball of fire. The colors are shooting out in rays of orange and purple and yellow, but they're very hard on the eyes. My eyes burn.
This ball is traveling at great speed through the air. Behind it is a long streak of multi-colored gases, looking--oh, like vapors. They're very choking and dark, cutting off the light. The smell is like sulphur, like burning matches. [Veronica coughs.]
Many people are running outside to watch. They shouldn't; it will hurt their eyes. They must stay indoors.
I see a large globe suspended in the air. It is the globe of the earth. I see this large ball. It's heading very fast, with its long tail behind it giving off these gases. It's very big, and it's very long. And way off in the distance, I can see what is a ball; it's a sun. It's very burning and red.
Now the tail is--seems to be blowing over to the sun. It seems to be going all around the sun as though it's being pulled in. But no, now the ball is beginning to turn. It's bouncing.
And now the ball is making a dive into . . . the path of the earth. Now it's caught like a top, and it's spinning, and it's starting to go around, around, around the earth. And the tail now is pulling away from the sun. And the ball is going around the earth, and the tail now is starting to drift over onto the earth.
I see now the oceans, the waters. I see the waters; I see, I see the waters churning up, and this land is just going down into the water.
Now it's growing very dark. And Our Lady now is coming forward. It's grown very dark, but Our Lady--the light about Her now lights up the sky, and Our Lady is leaning over. She's saying:
Our Lady--"Repeat, My child, well, the words you will now hear from Me.
"I have given you the sight to see what is to befall man if he does not make a complete reversal now in his sinful ways. The many offenses against his God must be corrected by penance, atonement, and sacrifice. If you continue to give yourselves to lives of pleasure and sin, you will be removed from your way of life forcibly by trial.
"Many warnings have been given throughout your earth for many earth-years. You are receiving your final warning. The Father plans to cleanse the earth gradually until it is returned to the original plan of Heaven. All who have listened to My words will be prepared.
"We look upon a generation and see demons coming from their mouths, tails of demons for tongues--tongues that would be better used for prayer. It is not what goes into man that destroys his soul, but what comes out!
"My child, you will be discriminated against; you will be scoffed at, for your words from My lips are not those of comfort at this time. They are words of truth of what is to befall man, for he has become a perverse generation, worse than in the time of Noe.
NEW YORK WILL FALL
"Your city We place as Babylon--your city, the city of murder and evil, corruption and godlessness--your city will fall!
"Those who have remained in the light and accepted the graces given to strengthen them in these dark days will be saved. This I promise you as your Mother. My Son, and in the Father, does not wish that any be lost. Every opportunity will be given to man to prepare himself and be made ready for the trial.
"The Day of days is at hand. The Day of the Lord, and the Coming of My Son, is not far off. Do you not recognize the signs of your time? Have you not read the words of the prophets of old? No! You have destroyed the temple of the Holy Spirit and the spirit within it, by casting your eyes and absorbing yourselves in the creations of satan. Take up the Book of life, your Bible, and bring yourselves back to the truth!"
ST. ANNE AND ST. JOACHIM
Veronica--Now I see a great light. Oh, it's just beautiful! And coming through this light, which is like an arc, is a lady. She's dressed similar to Our Lady, but in a darker garment. And she has a cream-colored scarf over her head. And next to her there's a man. He's dressed in brown, a long brown robe, and he has on brown sandals. And he has a short beard. Oh, I know now. It is Saint Anne and Joachim.
Now Saint Anne is coming over; she's floating over to the left side of the flagpole. She's standing by Our Lady. Saint Anne is just a little bit shorter than Our Lady. They are whispering now together; I can't hear them. Now Saint Anne is shaking her head like this, yes, and she is saying:
St. Anne--"Oh, how sad to look upon the homes of earth! Whatever has become of motherhood? What example, what poor example I see in many homes. You must return to the simple life. The love of riches will destroy your souls.
LACK OF DISCIPLINE
"Involvement of the parents in worldly pursuits and living take them farther from the graces of Heaven. The greatest offenses to the Father is the lack of discipline and true direction of many parents on earth today. My children--"
Veronica--And Saint Anne is placing her hand out, like this.
St. Anne--"You still have time to make restitution and atonement, and to save your children. You must bring them back to the Sacraments. You must be an example of modesty and true faith to them. Children will learn much by your example."
Veronica--Now Saint Joachim is walking over; he's standing now between Saint Anne and Our Lady. Now Saint Joachim is standing there. He has a long--it looks like a rod in his hand. And he's standing there holding the rod up, and he's saying:
St. Joachim--"In one hand you will hold the Book of life, and the other, discipline."
Veronica--And he's brandishing the stick, like this.
St. Joachim--"Humanism in your world has been created by satan. You will bring back the adages of old of 'Spare the rod, and you will spoil the child.' Discipline must be returned to the homes.
MAN THE BREADWINNER
"Where is the place of the man and father? Where has he gone from the home? Why has woman sought to take his place? Satan has created this delusion. The place of woman is in the home and the rearment of the child. The man will be the breadwinner and safeguard his home.
"Women, mothers of the world, why do you expose your bodies? Why do you create lust in the eyes of others, and in their heart? What example are you as mothers? Animals! Many homes now are infested with human animals!
"Return to the graces of your Sacraments and holy Church, or condemn yourselves to eternity with Lucifer! Consecrate your home with the Holy Spirit. Use the waters of life to chase the demons from within your home.
"The presence of My Son must always be in your heart. You, as parents, will take your children to the tabernacles of the world. You will fortify their souls with my Son.
"Yes, my child, you wonder why I say 'my Son,' for He is God. But in earthly life I was His father.
"I do not often speak out, but the world has sent itself into spiritual darkness. All Heaven now mobilizes for the final battle. It is through the providence of the Father that we of Heaven are permitted to speak with you. It is through the merciful heart of the Father that you are being warned. The destruction will come fast upon you, and we pity those souls unprepared.
"Your homes will be homes of prayer and good example. You may have to be an object of scorn and derision among your neighbors; but O my children, if they knew what awaits them, they would come and join you on their knees."
Veronica--Now it's growing very dark. Our Lady now is going over to the right side of the flagpole. Now Our Lady is bending over.
Our Lady--"My child, you will sit down now for the present. Jesus will instruct you further and bless all sacramentals. Continue with the prayers of atonement so sorely needed now, for the time grows short."
Veronica--Our Lady now is extending Her Rosary, the cross, like this, and blessing: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Veronica--Please kneel, all who are able, for the blessing of the sacramentals.
Oh, it's very bright. Jesus is standing out now; He's placing His hands out. And He has on a red robe; it's maroon-colored. And His hair is--well, it looks very much lighter, almost reddish-brown, because of the lights about Him.
And now He's smiling, and He's raising His hand now--oh, He says that He will start over on His right side to bless the populace, He says. Now Jesus is coming over to the left side of the flagpole. He says:
Jesus--"You will extend all your sacramentals. I will place upon these the power for conversion and cure, the power to retrieve from the wiles of satan those who would otherwise be on the dark road leading to the prince of darkness."
Veronica--Now Jesus is raising His hand, and His fingers are like this, three together, and He's making the sign of the Trinity: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Jesus is moving over closer to the left side of the flagpole. And Our Lady now is behind Him, and She's holding Her Rosary. It's a very large white Rosary with the gold bead on the end, the gold Our Father. And Her crucifix is very golden.
And now Jesus is standing next to Our Lady, and He's raising His hand very high above His head, like this, with three fingers: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now He's coming over very slowly; He's floating over to the right side of the flagpole. Now He is looking down and awaiting quiet. Jesus says there's disturbance below Him. Now He's looking up again, and He's raising His hand high above His head, and blessing in the sign of the Trinity: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Jesus and Our Lady are going over by the trees. They're standing just above the trees. And Our Lady is smiling. Now She's raising Her Rosary; She's raising Her Rosary and holding the cross, like this. And now She is blessing in the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
And Our Lady now has placed Her Rosary in Her left hand, and She's holding Her hand out, like this. Now from Her hand are coming lights--lights, beautiful lights! And they're coming down now across the sky and down, down here on the left side, and behind the back of the statue. The rays are very brilliant. They're a bluish-white ray, and they're--there must be one, two, three rays--three of them, coming right from the trees, down beyond the statue, and down onto the ground. And Our Lady is smiling.
Oh! Well, I don't know if I should repeat it, but Our Lady said:
Our Lady--"You follow the direction of Our graces well, My child."
Veronica--Oh, now Jesus and Our Lady are coming over to the center of the flagpole. Oh, They're very beautiful! There's--oh, such a wonderful feeling of peace. Jesus is looking down now and over, and He's pointing now over to the left side of the sky, and--oh, He's writing again with His finger. And He says:
Jesus--"ALL": A-L-L "WARNING CONDITIONAL TO YOUR RESPONSE": R-E-S-P-O-N-S-E.
Veronica--Now Jesus is coming over to the right side of the flagpole. He is saying:
EARTH TO BE CLEANSED BY TRIAL
Jesus--"Nothing is impossible with the Father. The elements can be disturbed. All the elements of Heaven can be changed and brought down upon you, all in the will of the Father. He has created, and He can destroy. However, it will lighten your hearts to know that the Father does not plan to destroy your earth, but to cleanse it by trial until it returns to the pure state of its original creation."
Veronica--Now it's growing quite dark, and Jesus and Our Lady are stepping back. Now Our Lady is bending over with Her Rosary. The Rosary is being held--She's holding them in Her hands, like this.
Our Lady--"My child, one more word of direction to the world: We find great discord among the workers of earth. United you will form a strong front, but you are all divided. You must unify as Mary workers, and set a strong front against the forces of evil. If you do not unify, you will be infiltrated by the agents of hell.
"United you will stand against satan. If you divide, he will conquer many. This is a simple lesson that must be learned by Our workers in the mission of saving souls.
"All sacramentals will be distributed throughout the world. The beads of prayer shall go throughout the world, link to link and bead to bead.
"Your country can still be saved a greater part of the major disaster planned for it. However, the balance now falls heavily to the left, which is of evil. You must make now atonement and restore your country and the world to a state pleasing to your God. This is the final warning being given to man before his coming chastisement."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is raising Her hand: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Our Lady--"Continue, My children, with your prayers of atonement. They are sorely needed."
