The Message of Our Lady and Our Lord to Veronica of the Cross

"Intellectual pride, My children, has been the downfall of many. You will not enter the Kingdom unless you strip yourselves of this pride and return to Us as little children."

May 30, 1973

Eve of the Ascension of Our Lord

Veronica-- . . . human means of the establishment of the Shrine as an atonement center, but to supply Her children and those who have grown weak in the belief of the supernatural or the existence of the unseen world which the human eye has not been given the grace to see, and to bring the actual truth of the existence of this unseen world to you, that Our Lady said the camera will reveal what the human eye fails to see. And also the camera will also bear out the messages of Our Lady. They will tie in quite directly with the written message and the message given by all the visitors from Heaven. And we have been graced with having--Jacinta has appeared with Our Lady here three times. And Saint Robert Bellarmine and Saint Catherine Laboure and Saint Theresa and her sisters, and so many now that we never know who is going to accompany Our Lady. And of course, Saint Michael, because he's the guardian; he is always with Our Lady. And Michael is truly Our Lady's guardian because he bears out Her message with much more sternness than Our Lady gives it Herself.

And now I believe we should start the Rosary.


Oh, Michael has appeared. He's on the right side of the flagpole, and now he's coming forward. And he's very brilliant; Michael--he's so brilliant that I--I see Our Lady now is coming over on Michael's left side. Our Lady is now whispering to Michael, and Michael is coming forward. And now he's bending down, and he's saying:

St. Michael--"Harken now and listen well to the words of the Queen of Heaven. Do not allow these words to go idle in your mind. They have been given to you for reason. Your world is approaching fast onto a great Chastisement. The balance is falling heavily to the left."

Veronica--Now Michael is holding what looks like a scale; it's--oh, it's, it's like a golden scale, like you see, like in those courthouses, like. But Michael is standing behind it, and he's pointing now to one part. It's held by three . . . like it's golden ropes. And he points and he says:

St. Michael--"I observe all the abominations of the world that far outweigh the graces being accepted by man."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is coming over and closer. And She's leaning down, and She is saying:

Our Lady--"Veronica, My child, I wish that you spread--and do this very fast--the Message of Heaven, for the time grows short for the Chastisement upon man.

"I have wandered throughout the world shedding many tears. Who has hastened to ease My suffering heart? The offenses against My Son have increased so that the Father feels that there must be an intervention from Heaven.

"I have prepared you well with My visits to these sacred grounds. All who have listened will have nothing to fear, for all will be good for those of well spirit.

"It truly rains teardrops from Heaven. The Father calls for heavy penance upon a world that has used murder for worldly gain. We look and count the numbers of innocent souls, souls that have not lived out their mission on earth and being sent to Us untimely. Your generation is one that calls for heavy penance! The Father is merciful, and all chastisement will be for reason."

Veronica--Now--oh, on the left side of the flagpole it's growing very light. It's very bright. And I see now in the distance, it's a . . . it's a . . . it's shooting--it looks like the fourth of July. There's a round ball, and it's shooting out sparks. And the sparks now, they're orange. But now as it's spinning, it's taking on different colors of yellow and orange. And now I see it's very close. But over on the right side, it's very warm; it's very hot. And now the ball is spinning high over our heads, and coming from it are the vapors. [Veronica coughs.] It's very difficult to breathe. The vapors are very heavy.

And now I notice that the sun now is turning very dark. It's growing very dark. And the moon--now the moon has come out. It's coming down, but it also is taking on a very gray cast. And now everything is becoming so dark that I'm raising my hand in front of me, but I can't even see my hand! And Our Lady now is--I hear Her voice, but now the world is in complete darkness. And She says:

Our Lady--"Light your candles, My children. They will burn in the darkness."

Veronica--Now it's--the sky is opening up, and I see a great light. And--oh, the sky is opening up brilliantly. It's very beautiful now, in blue. And now Michael is coming forward with Our Lady, and now--oh, there is Saint Theresa. Oh, now Theresa is coming. And it's very windy; her skirts are blowing. And she's smiling now, and she says:

St. Theresa--"Observe, Veronica, my skirts are quite long. They will not be affected by the wind."

Veronica--And now Theresa is looking back towards the grounds. I believe she's pointing over to the convent. She said:

St. Theresa--"I, my child, can speak in your tongue. This I was given by the Father; for surely, my child, Veronica, you would not understand me.

"It has been made known to you many times that there are many offenses being committed in the convents. However, our warnings are falling on deafened ears. We try, and I tried in my life on earth, to imitate Our Lady. But now Our Lady cries, for so many are mocking Her. So many are going now down the road to perdition by following the modes of the world that has been given to satan.

"Suffering--so few care to suffer or carry their crosses. It is much easier to accept the ways of the world. But in the final outcome you lose so much.


"My sisters, you must place your skirts down to the floor, for you offend Our Lady, and the Father looks with critical eye upon your actions. You must retire from the world and show by good example. Then many more sisters will enter into the convents if you give them good example.

"All mothers of the houses into the convents must watch who enters their home, for satan has placed many within the convents to destroy them. Those who enter should not be counted by their intelligence, but by their hearts; for the Father has not chosen those of great intelligence and worldly acclaim to do His will. He knows, and He looks into your heart.

"There will be a great War. Many souls will be lost. All that happens will be given in the will of man. No one will fall unless he has chosen this road of his own free will."


Veronica--Oh, Our Lady now is coming forward, and standing next to Her is Saint Catherine. She has this large white hat on. Every time Saint Catherine comes she has this white hat. It looks like wings, and--oh, Catherine thinks that's quite funny, but I don't know how else to explain. It's very large and white. And Catherine now is smiling, and she's holding up--oh, it's a very large emblem. No, it's a medal. And she said:

St. Catherine--"It took me two years, my child, to have this cast. We are quite happy that we find that yours was cast much sooner."

Veronica--Oh! Oh! And now she's placing . . . it's the, her medal, her Miraculous--the medal that Our Lady gave to Saint Catherine--she's placing it now next to the flagpole. I don't know what's holding it up there, but it's just suspended on the flagpole. And now Our Lady is raising Her hand, and She's drawing an arch in the sky, like this. And now She's drawing, and--oh, Our Lady has drawn the second side of Her medal here, of Our Lady of the Roses. It's a round circle with a ball [cross]on the top, and the radiation of the graces from the cross.

And now Our Lady is coming forward. Oh, She's dressed beautifully. She has on a white gown with a gold--it looks like twisted cord, golden twisted cord, and it's tied at Her waist. It hangs on Her right side. But now Our Lady has a very large Rosary in Her hands. It's white, but the Our Fathers are pink. Oh, it's like a rosebud. The Our Fathers are pink; they're like a rosebud. Now the crucifix is very golden. Now Our Lady said:

Our Lady--"Observe, My child, what I am doing."

Veronica--And Our Lady is twisting the Rosary around Her golden sash. Now She is coming forward. And Our Lady's cape--it's Her mantle, I think you call it, it goes all the way across Her head and down to Her feet. And on Her feet She has these slippers. They're golden, and they have roses, pink roses right on the tips of the slippers. And Our Lady looks quite tiny because Saint Catherine now is standing behind Her. But she's quite elevated over Our Lady. It makes Our Lady look quite tiny. And Our Lady says:


Our Lady--"I have placed the beads of prayer at My waist. I look across the world, and I see so few that carry their beads of prayer. Whatever shall they do when they are forced to run? When the Chastisement comes upon you, many will flee with whatever they have on their backs or on their persons. Therefore, My children, it is not for decoration that I have asked you to wear your beads of prayer about your neck. It was for when you flee; you will have your armor upon you.

"Do not be concerned with the opinion of man, for you are following the directives from Heaven. We are now in the process of separating the sheep from the goats. The numbers who will remain after the heavy penance will be counted in the few. It saddens My heart to know that many will have given themselves to Lucifer."


Veronica--Oh, I see a--oh, it's a very large pit, I guess, a hole. And sitting down there at the edge of the hole are some horrible-looking things. They look like animals, but they have almost the figures of people. And they're sitting around now what looks like a glass. And the glass is reflecting up through the hole, and it's almost like a looking glass because its--the rays, there are rays being shot out from this glass, and the rays are going up, up this hole. And I'm watching the rays. And they're shooting out onto the grounds. And as they're going up, riding these rays are these horrible, ugly things, these--I know they're demons; I know. Now Our Lady said:

Our Lady--"Watch, My child, what else is exiting from the hole."

Veronica--Oh, my goodness! There are things that look like bright lights, but they're like dome-like on the top. And they don't have any windows; they're just great lights. And Our Lady now is standing at the edge of this hole, and She's pointing. And She's saying:

Our Lady--"Man will not accept the truth. These are transports of hell."

Veronica--Oh, Our Lady's referring to these things that are being seen on earth. Our Lady said:

Our Lady--"Make it known, My child, that the false miracles of the end time are now at hand. Satan seeks to confuse you. Make it known, My child, that there is no life beyond your earth as you know it. Man will go out into space. Better that he uses these efforts to find his way back to God.

"Intellectual pride, My children, has been the downfall of many. You will not enter the Kingdom unless you strip yourselves of this pride and return to Us as little children.

"Sin and abominations have been accepted in your country and in the world as a way of life. Whatever shall We do with the souls who are coming fast over the veil unprepared? Whatever shall the Father do with them?

"When the Chastisement is given to man, it will not annihilate the world as in the time of the floods, My children. No, the Father plans a gradual cleansing of earth. With the return of My Son, there will remain only the sheep.

"I must caution you: before the return of My Son, many will not stand in the test. They will go the easy road. But if--there is no easy road to the Kingdom; it is a way of trial and suffering. But of course, the greatest knowledge is that if you will ask for Our guidance, you will not be lost.

"Continue, My children, with your prayers of atonement. There are so many who thirst for your charitable prayers."


Veronica--I'm very, very overwhelmed every time the mail does come in and we find the miraculous cures and the conversions, especially the conversions which are so important today. And satan is fighting with our Father to claim souls, and we're fighting with Our Lady to recover them. And Our Lady also sometimes wants me to speak in my own words, which I find very difficult. It's much easier to repeat Our Lady's words.

But Our Lady wants you to know that you must all learn the value of suffering and, of course, the power of prayer. And Our Lady said I can divulge to you a secret: that if you ask the Father in the name of Her Son, He can very seldom refuse. Of course, this--what you request must be beneficial to your soul, because naturally, satan has his way of giving you what will take you farther from the path to the Kingdom. Therefore, what you ask of the Father must be of benefit to your soul or another. To ask for material wealth, which so many may think of doing, there are needs which the Father knows of. He reads your hearts. Therefore, you would not really have to ask in that direction, but what you need now is the strength to stand up in the bad times we're going to have up to the Second Coming of Jesus. And, as Michael has said to my son and I twice in my home, that what was to happen in the future shall be now. Of course, it is for you to help change this by getting out the message in great haste.


And at the present time, for those who haven't had the opportunity to know--I believe it's all right; I have the permission of Our Lady to tell you this--that there has been sighted a comet. The comet has, came to man's view on March 8 of this year. Now of course, we approach this with a great question mark. This comet is larger than anything that man has ever been able to see. And by the twenty-fifth of December it will be visible to all at the present rate it's heading towards our atmosphere. Now this comet is also larger than Halley's; they know that for a fact. Now I--oh, even the Warning that Our Lady has been speaking of here for three years, and in other places throughout the world, that She's been trying to reach souls by visiting, and there are many. And there will be still many more before the end of the battle.

She always tells us that the Father--it's not His wish to punish, because the Father is not a punishing Father. But if He does give you and send you trial, in the--all evil will be turned to good and therefore, it is His way, in His infinite knowledge, His manner to bring you back. And at the end of the great trials that we are approaching, all those who do fall will have fallen of their own free will, their own choice.

Therefore, you must rely now on your sacramentals--and Our Lady has given many and Heaven has sent many. And the sacramentals, which many scoff at now; we have many scoffers throughout the world who don't even, Our Lady said, believe in the supernatural. But the, the sacramentals are given for your protection. And now we'll continue with the Rosary.

I do believe Our Lady wouldn't mind if I tell you that in Time Magazine this week there is an article on this comet. And the reason we are quite concerned is we have received--I believe it was Mrs. Anna P. was the instrument used by Our Lady to bear out the words about the approaching Warning. We do have tremendous pictures of this comet. They have appeared onto film, and they are really astounding to see. We have the actual photographs of the comet and they're very big photographs--they're nothing that you can think are just an imaginative viewing of the picture. These are actual photographs. So we will pray and we will hope and we will keep going with the object that we can avoid any serious chastisement.


Because I can assure you, though the Warning will not be as fearful as the Chastisement, I, myself am not looking forward to even a Warning. I will try with every means that I have at the disposal--I mean the means given me by Our Lady in Heaven, to reach all the souls so that we can avoid this method--what the Father considers at the present time necessary--the Warning.

The Warning itself will not be as severe as the Chastisement. I have seen the Warning and I have seen also, many times, the Chastisement. The Warning, I can assure you, will be a cataclysm. It will be a tremendous explosive force in the sky, and many will think that the end of the world has come, when actually for--oh, a short time you will feel as though you're on fire.

And if anyone does perish in this cataclysm it will be only from fright, because it will not have the--it'll be like a cosmic explosion, that's what it will feel like. And during that time, with the grace of the Father, His plan is to make known to each individual, each soul, just what is happening then--what he is doing that brings him to the brink, and perhaps falling to Lucifer. And it will be a personal warning to each soul. And this Warning will be to try to purify you so that we can avoid the ultimate Chastisement, in which over a billion people, I can assure you, will die.

This will be--I know, I can tell you for a fact that this comet will be the instrument used by the Father to chastise the world--the final cleansing. And that will be before the Second Coming of Jesus and the great War. This will, I believe--the great War, from what Our Lady told me, will be going on just about the time that the comet strikes earth.


Of course, we try to push and hold back the darkness with our sacrifices and our prayers, and that is why Our Lady came here to Bayside to set up the center of atonement. And I have great hope that with our sacrifices and our keeping God here in New York, because Our Lady said that New York is like a cancer. All of the evils, and all has come like from a nucleus, a center point, and that the greatest part of it is fanning out from New York. Therefore, when the Chastisement comes, New York--I have seen New York in visions actually go down like a deck of cards until there was just--it was just levelled. And it was a terrible, a very, very horrible sight. In fact, it put me in bed almost two days, I was so ill after seeing it.

So we will continue, because many prayers are needed, and the power of prayer will be recognized in time. And I--Our Lady also admonishes all parents to guard well the souls of their children, for it is the children, Our Lady said, who are truly the victims of their elders and their generation. Our Lady knows that those who are of the age group that have received the proper foundation can have more of a chance to save their souls. Therefore, the parents have a double responsibility. They must pass on the knowledge of the truth to their children. And sad to say, what grieves Our Lady a great deal, and She speaks of this much to me, even, is the fact that many parents are even showing a very poor example to their children. And all of us will be held accountable because each soul is held in balance. And the judgment, the final judgment, is always with the Father.

We don't go around, we don't condemn, we don't try to pass judgment on each other because only the Father can really look into your heart. But of course, you cannot escape the fact that sin is sin, right is right, and wrong is wrong. And there's no whitewashing a sin. And there's no use of this, what Our Lady refers to as--oh, rationalizing sin. You can't push it back and give excuses for sin.


Our Father has given, Our Lady says, the tablets as guide to mankind to save his soul. Now there has to be discipline, Our Lady said, and you have to follow the rules because if you break the rules, then you're off the team, Our Lady said. And we are setting up sides, teams, and one side is Lucifer and the other is Jesus. And Our Lady has Her armies now throughout the world. The sacred grounds here at Bayside is only one area in which Our Lady has set up Her armies. And Our Lady has requested that a string of Rosaries be laid end to end across the country and across the world, because there is only one thing that will make America rise again, is if she returns to God.

Now America the beautiful--Our Lady refers to her as America the beautiful--has fallen to satan. Like the eagle, she has fallen and she is plucked. Therefore, she will not rise again unless man makes a complete reversal of his ways. He must cast off the demons that have entered upon his complete way of life.

And satan now has placed many agents in the schools, and even, it's sad to say, satan now even roams in the House of God, in the Church. And the only thing that can chase him out is prayer. So even the dedicated of the Father must know that they must return to a simple life of prayer and sacrifice. And there will be no rationalization, no adopting of modernism. Pope Pius X warned many years ago that there would come a crisis in holy Church in which modernism would slowly creep in and distort and confuse. And confusion, distortion, and--of course, is always the work of satan.

And very important, Our Lady said, do not leave. Those who become discontented with their way of life, whether they be religious or laymen, must stay and have trust and hope that all will eventually be made right by the intervention of Heaven. Therefore, satan would like you to become discouraged and leave. No, you will stay there.


Of course, there is obedience, but you will pray. And prayer now has become the major weapon against satan. Prayer. And also it would do you well, Our Lady said, to retire from this world that has become the playground of satan. And keep pure and holy thoughts. Our Lady stresses that very much, pure and holy thoughts, because the main entrance of the evil one is through your mind. That is the principal source of entrance. Because Our Lady says it's not so much what goes in, but what comes out that can damage your soul. You can take in, but if even evil created by your eyes or your ears, your senses, but if you cast them out there is no soil to your soul. But it's when you choose to retain these evils or develop them, or take pleasure in them, that is when your soul is damaged.

Now I am very surprised that I was able to speak like this on my own. Because Our Lady said that we do a great deal of repetition on the sacred grounds. But Our Lady said it must be repeated over and over, because it must enter into the minds and hearts of man now.

The time grows very short. There will soon be a Warning given to the world. That is what Our Lady was just speaking of--the Warning. And this Warning will be quite severe. It will be a profound warning to mankind. And those who have been given the grace to come to the sacred grounds have not come here by accident; they have been led here by the grace of Heaven. And as, since you have received this grace, Our Lady asks that you go out and you try to reach others with the knowledge you've been given here. Because you can't sit back smugly, said Our Lady, and know that you have been saved because then there's pride and vanity. You must humble yourself and still go out and share this grace with your brothers.

And now Our Lady said to continue with the prayers of atonement.


Our Lady--"My child, you will act in great haste. I know the heavy cross that you carry at this time. But you must understand, My child, that all purification will be given in manner that the human mind cannot comprehend. When you learn the value of suffering you will find it a joy, for the graces will be given in abundance."

Veronica--Oh! Oh, Jesus has now come over by Our Lady. Oh! He-- Oh, it's so--He's so bright. Jesus is now coming down by the flagpole. Oh, He's dressed all in white! Oh, He's very bright. Usually I could see Jesus, but now the light is so bright. He's all in white. Oh! And now He's bending over, and He's whispering very low. Oh, Jesus says:

Jesus--"You are observing, My child, My state of purification when I returned to the Father. You will not understand life beyond the veil until you pass over. The light that guides a soul will emanate in profusion from the eternal soul when you pass over the veil. Those who purify themselves on earth will come to Us as a shining star."

Veronica--Now over on the left side, Michael is standing there. But now I see the sky is becoming just filled with these--oh, they're angels! Now there's little ones that look like children. They're beautiful. They're dressed in all the colors, like rainbows--blues . . . and they're wearing garlands of flowers around their hair. Oh, they're--I don't know if they're boys or girls; it's hard to see, their faces are so bright. The light is so bright, but I can see the colors. The colors are just beautiful: pinks, but a pink that's a mixture of sort of purple. And the yellow, though, the yellow is bright; it's like a very misty yellow.

And now I notice that it must be windy because the gowns are very long and they're blowing; they're blowing in the wind. Now Jesus is moving over, and He's standing next to Our Lady. And the light is very bright, very bright about Him. Now He's bending down now, and He says:

Jesus--"My Mother came to Heaven in the body."

Veronica--Oh! Oh, and now He's pointing over to the left side, and I see, I see a Lady. Now it's Our Lady, but She's lying down on a . . . on a slab. But now there's a great light over Her as She's lying on the slab, and--oh, this light seems to be lifting Her. The light is very bright. It's coming down from the sky, and it's now lifting Our Lady. And now She is just floating up, up, up, up. Oh! And She's now standing over . . . . And now She's removing, it looks like sheeting, sheets, like were wrapped around Her, and they're dropping off.

And now--oh, She has on a beautiful blue cape, a mantle, and a white dress, and now there's a blue sash about Her dress. And She's holding out Her beads, Her Rosary. They're very large. The Rosary--the beads are white, but the Our Fathers now are--oh, they're very large and they're golden. The gold is brilliant. It's shining so brilliantly that actually it's shooting out rays. The Our Fathers now from Our Lady's beads are shooting out rays. They're coming over in this direction. It's just like streaks of golden fire. Oh! All the way back--oh, right back over the trees. Oh, they're beautiful! Oh, beautiful! Oh!

Now Our Lady is moving over with Jesus, and now Jesus--oh, He would like now at this time to bless all the sacramentals. You'll extend all the objects of God, your beads of prayer, your medallions, (Jesus means medals), your cards of beauty (Jesus means your prayer cards and holy pictures). And now Jesus is raising His hand. Oh, it's so bright, I can barely look at it.

And the light's coming out of His hands. They're coming down; they're streams of light. Oh, they're so bright! Now coming down--Jesus is standing over by the trees now, and the lights are coming down on everyone. Oh, they're cutting right through the trees down onto everyone standing on the right side. They're very bright. It hurts my eyes to look, they're so bright.

Now Jesus is walking over, and there's something--now where the lights are coming down there's something glittering. It's just like pieces of glass falling. They're just glittering and falling down, just like--oh, not rhinestones, like pieces of slivery glass. Now--oh, now Jesus is floating over; He's at the center of the flagpole. Oh, now He's extending His hand over His head, and He's making the sign of the Trinity, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Our Lady is coming over. She's floating over. She's right next to Jesus. Now They're coming over. Oh! Oh, They're going over on the left side--oh, by the flagpole. And now Jesus has His hand way high over His head. He's blessing everyone now on our left side--that would be Jesus' right side: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Oh, now He's coming over, and He's shifting His cape, like-- it's a long white robe. It's very bright; it's almost like the sugar, the color of sugar. It's very white. And, but it's glowing; there's a tremendous glow coming from inside of Jesus' clothes. And He's coming over, and He's shifting the cape over onto His left arm, and He's bending forward. And now He says:

Jesus--"My child, I give now three directives: penance, atonement, and make sacrifice now. Your world has gone into deep darkness. Should the Father permit a continuation of the present state of the world, Lucifer will gain count over the souls. Therefore, you are being given now at this time on your earth a Warning. Prepare yourselves with acts of sacrifice, and beg mercy of the Father that many are not taken during this Warning and the eventual Chastisement, which is not long in coming should you not mend your ways and return your earth to the state in which the Father planned to have it."

Veronica--Oh! Oh! Now Jesus is pointing over to the sky, and I see that ball again. It's, it's, it's turning very fast, and it seems to be coming through a vast space. And now as it's going through the sky, it's hitting--it's hitting stars. It's hitting stars; I know they're stars. And many of them are falling down to the earth, the stars. And it's bouncing. It doesn't seem to have even any path. It seems to be hitting back and forth! And there's another star--oh! It's going to--oh! Oh! Oh, I thought it was going to hit us. Oh!

Now it's twirling. And now it's going back into space. It's becoming very small, the ball. It's very small, but it's very, very orange-looking. And I can still feel the heat. Oh, now it's getting very dark. Now the sky is going very dark, and I can't see it now. Oh!

Now Our Lady is coming out from this--there's a large cloud, a very large cloud. And Our Lady is coming forward, and I see She is wiping Her eyes. She's passing Her hand over Her eyes. And oh, oh, She's crying. I . . . oh, Our Lady said:

Our Lady--"I know My [your] desire, your [My] child, that I should open before the eyes of all the picture of what lies ahead. However, this I cannot do. We must follow the plan of the Father."

Veronica--Our Lady says that I have asked many times if She would appear at this time to all. And She said:


Our Lady--"No, it is not in the will of the Father at this time. However, you will be given many manifestations, and then My Son will perform from this sacred ground a major miracle that will bring all to the knowledge and reality that there exists a God Who is the Creator and rules Heaven and earth."

Veronica--Now it's getting very, very dark. And it's just like--oh, the cloud, there's a very large cloud coming over; the cloud is very large. And it looks like Our Lady is just stepping on into it. Oh, no. Oh, no, it's a ball. There's a ball now coming out from the cloud. And Our Lady has now--She's floated up onto the top of the ball. And the ball now is floating over to the right side of the flagpole; it's by the trees. And Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"I am not leaving the area of the sacred grounds. Please, My children, continue with your prayers.


"My children, satan has many plans to stop the prayers of atonement; however, We are always ahead of him. He has forgotten the power of the Father.

"My child, no, you will remain seated.

"You must warn the world now that too many years were wasted in speculation when I gave the warnings many years ago. You do not have the time now in idle talk or speculation. There are many agents of hell now. They have entrenched themselves in every walk of your life: your schools, your government, and even they walk in the holy House of God. However, the Father permits this war. This war is one of the spirits. It is far greater a war than man could ever fight upon earth with humans; for now, My children, you are at war with the unseen world.

"Do not deny the fact that there is an unseen world about you. When you accept this fact, you can fight it. Satan can enter upon and claim and make an agent any human being who has fallen far from grace, be it a man, a woman, or a child. Therefore, recognize this fact, and disassociate yourselves from temptations and the ways of error set forth by these agents of satan. Recognize the faces of evil about you. Recognize the wolves in sheep's clothing.


"You will all read the Book of life. You will not accept the errors being written into the Book of life at the present time.

"I warned many years ago of the state of this world to come, but who listened? You do not have those years now to speculate or to hesitate. You must act now upon My counsel, or you will fall!

"Prayer, atonement, and sacrifice--save yourselves; save your souls and the souls of those you love. And if you have the charity of heart for your brothers, you will offer your sacrifices for their salvation, for many will be lost because they have no one who cares to pray for them. The greatest weapon you have now is prayer; you will use it. Man has many opportunities to make atonement to his God, but he has become involved in a materialistic world.

"You must retire from this world that has been given to satan. Recognize the evils that are created for your downfall: humanism, modernism. They are satanic--creations of satan to place you and blind you to the truth, place you on the road to damnation. For the man of perdition now is loosed upon your world. He roams your world, and he is gathering many agents."


Veronica--Now Our Lady is pointing to the sky. Oh! And there are the numbers "6-6-" . . . And now in black letters, and She's circling it in black, is "5". "6-6" and "5". The "5" now has, is circled now. Our Lady's tracing with Her hand, two V-like ears; they look like ears. They're like ears over the circle. Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"Number five, and then six, and wait for Michael.


"You will stand behind your Vicar. The agents of hell surround him. They will not remove him from the Seat of Peter. A greater punishment falls upon man should he be removed from the Seat of Peter! It is the plan of Lucifer to sit his agent upon the Seat. I have warned you many times that your ways have led you into great destruction.

"The hand of God will fall heavy upon your world. For a man to let himself fall into perdition in his lay life . . . but when this perdition has entered into the House of God, it calls for a speedy and fast destruction! For all that is rotten will fall. Weak vines will break, boughs will be bent, but the cross of the living God shall not be bent by the will of man and to satisfy the desires of a corrupt generation! No-o-o! For woe to those who promote evil in the House of God! They will be held accountable in full measure for the fall of the souls entrusted to their care.

"The penance upon the world is being meted at this time, and it will be heavy. Man now holds the balance for his own future, if he has been given this future."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is pointing over to the left side of the flagpole. There's appearing a large map. Now it's--the map I know is Africa. And Our Lady is taking now--She has something in Her hand that looks like an eraser, and She's coloring over, and many parts of Africa now are colored black. Now Our Lady is turning, and She's saying:

Our Lady--"These are the areas that are fast going into darkness. They will join in the great tribulation."


Veronica--Oh! Now Our Lady is speaking about the great War that will come upon man.

Our Lady--"It will be in unison with the great Chastisement."

Veronica--Of the comet.

Now Our Lady is pointing up to the sky, and now She's drawing a large question mark, a large . . . like that. And oh, She's saying:

Our Lady--"You wonder, My child, why I have placed this mark over the heavens. It is the will of the Father, for as I have repeated Myself, I do say now that you hold the balance for your future."

Veronica--Now it's growing very, very dark. No, Our Lady--no, there's--that cloud is floating now over from the trees. The cloud is very light. It's floating over, and now following it is a bird, a dove. Oh! It's a--oh, it's a beautiful bird. It's got something in its mouth; it looks like an olive--I know it's an olive branch. Our Lady is saying:

Our Lady--"The olive branch of peace. It will not fly over your country at this time."

Veronica--I know this bird is flying very fast. It's going clear across the sky very fast. And now it's returning, but it doesn't have the olive branch in its mouth. And it's fluttering and it's floating; its wings are flapping very, very slowly, and it looks like its been wounded. And now I see it falling down beyond the trees.

And oh, oh! And over by the top of the steeple, I see Saint Francis over there, by--over the top of the church there's Saint Francis. Oh, and he's picking up this bird; He's holding the bird in his hand, the bird. The bird looks like it might have died; its very limp. And Saint Francis now is placing his hand over the bird. No, it's sitting up in Saint Francis' hand, and Saint Francis is pointing over, over to the right side. He wants me to look over the right side.


He--oh, I see. He's pointing over, and over the right side is a map. And he said peace also will be denied the areas shown. Oh, dear! I can see Egypt, and I see, oh, Asia. Oh, I see a lot of people there; they're all marching. They look like, kind of like Chinese . . . Chinese. And oh, they're getting ready for war. They've got all these tanks . . . all these tanks. And they're all marching, the armies; there's a whole lot of them. There's so many of them! Many of them look like young children, but there's so many of them. [Veronica spoke in a low voice tense with apprehension.]

Oh! And Our Lady said:

Our Lady--"They are gathering their strength."

Veronica--I know that's China, and all these kind of--I guess yellow countries.

Our Lady's placing--She's writing "Y-E-L-L-O-" on the top, right over the map there. And oh, it looks like they're getting ready for an awful war or something. They're--oh, yes, they're all marching. Oh, oh. They're all dressed alike; they're very, very . . . Oh, there's women, too. There's women, too, that are marching with them, and the girls--the girls look very young; they look very young.


Oh! Oh! Oh, now over them I see--oh . . . oh, it's Russia! I see Russia now is talking. Oh, they're at a big desk, a rather large desk. And that . . . umh! At the desk I can see . . . I know he's Russian. But sitting next to him . . . looks like someone I have seen before, like . . . I don't know . . . it looks almost like Mr. Kissinger. I don't know. But he's sitting at the desk also, and it looks like they're planning; they're talking about . . . arms or support. I think there's going to be something going on. And Russia is going to . . . I think it sounds like they're going to fight. They're going to fight--oh, there's Egypt. I think they're going to go to war against Egypt and Africa. And--oh! And then Our Lady said:

Our Lady--"Gathering at Palestine. Gathering at Palestine."

Veronica--Oh, now it's getting very dark, and the sky is clearing. I can't see anything. And I can hear Our Lady. She says:

Our Lady--"I have not left now. I will direct you further, but you must get out the message in great haste. Physical infirmities have been promoted many times by satan. You will not accede to your physical weaknesses. You must work, My child. Work with great haste, for the time grows short."

Veronica--And now Our Lady is standing there. Oh, She's stepping--not stepping, She's kind of floating onto the top of the ball. Now the ball is over, it's going beyond the trees. And now it's stopped. It's balanced--the ball! I can't see the ball! It looks like the world in a way, but it's all lighted; it's very white, this ball. It's very large. And it seems to be just suspended, just right in the air. And Our Lady's standing there. And She thinks it's quite funny; Our Lady is smiling. She says:

Our Lady--"Nothing is impossible here, My child. This you will all find when you come over the veil. We can do much more up here than you can do down there!"

Veronica--Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh, it's beautiful. And Our Lady's just going to stand there. And She says:

Our Lady--"Now continue with your prayers."

Veronica--. . . but Her clothes, they're not quite like ours; they're electrified. Oh, but they glow. I asked Our Lady why Her clothes looked so transparent to me here. Our Lady said that is because there are many things that are a secret to Heaven, and they would no longer be sacred if they were all revealed to you.

I was asking Our Lady--it's kind of a silly question--are the clothes She has on like ours, like. She says not quite. Our Lady's gown is always very, very brilliant, and the light is coming through them, so I kind of wanted to know if they're the same material as we have on earth, and She says no. [The prayers continue.]

Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"Over the veil We recognize no color or race. Pure spirits are spirits."

Veronica--Our Lady said there is no color or race over the veil. A spirit is beyond human explanation.

Our Lady--"You will be fully recognizable to each other when you pass over the veil. Therefore, you must have great heart in the knowledge that you will join those who were with you upon the earth, and you will have full knowledge of that meeting.

"However, there will be many human emotional attitudes removed over the veil. For the only suffering allowed--this may be difficult, My child, for you to understand--but through the will of the Father, it is only My Son and I and those who have accepted the mission of the present time to come to earth that must suffer with many human feelings. However, over the veil there will be nothing but joy and peace and feeling of complete exhilaration here.

"I, standing beside My Son, am subject to all human nature. It has been My choice, because I join My Son in the repatriation of My children's souls here on earth. Many mysteries will be made known to you when you come over the veil.


"You ask, My child, where is the Kingdom? The Kingdom is in existence, an actual place way out into Heaven beyond the farthest star. When I step onto this large ball, you see Me ride completely up into the heavens, for I am taken back to the Kingdom. It is not what the world claims now. Satan seeks to call Us a myth. O My children, I can assure you We are far from a myth, for We are living and watching all of this battle raging."

Veronica--Oh, now Our Lady is pointing, and--oh, I see; She's moving over. The ball is moving over to the right side by the trees, and Our Lady said now--and She's holding out the Rosary, and She said:

Our Lady--"Tell your beads, My children."

Veronica--Oh, She means pray the Rosary.


Oh, Our Lady is giving a direction now. Our Lady says that She would like you, when you hear of a death upon earth, whether you know the person or whether you don't, She requests that you say an Act of Contrition and three Hail Marys, for a great indulgence will be granted for the soul, the departed soul. That would be an Act of Contrition and three Hail Marys for a departed soul. Therefore, they would be given a grace necessary for their repatriation into Heaven. Our Lady said great indulgence will be given for the recitation of the Act of Contrition and three Hail Marys.


[Our Lady] has been discoursing with me on Her relation to the children of earth. Our Lady said that don't think They're unapproachable. Our Lady said that She also lived upon earth in human form as you do, so She's fully aware of all the temptations and of your trials.

Our Lady said She spent over seventy years on the earth here, and also Jesus, being the Son of God in the Father, also spent an earthly life. Therefore, They're not unapproachable. So you do not, Our Lady said, have to speak with Us in awe or fear, because We are fully in union with Our children, Our Lady said. And what She means is that, trust in Her and trust in Her Son, and you will be rescued. No matter how deep the darkness grows or how hard the trials, if you have faith and trust in Our Lady and Jesus, you will be rescued.


Of course, many will suffer great trials. You can't expect to be free from suffering, even when you're with Our Lady. Because were this to be so, the Son of God would not have had to suffer, if it was not in the will of the Father. Therefore, the plan for all souls is to be cleansed on earth. That's why Our Lady said you should learn the value of suffering, how it can actually purify your soul if you accept it in the knowledge that this will lead you onto the path and keep you on the path to Heaven.

Therefore, those who have great trial with physical illnesses or mental illnesses, know that this has not been given to you as a punishment, but as a test. And it's how you will accept this test that will make you eligible to enter fast into the Kingdom. Very few enter fast into the Kingdom. Many have to be purified. And if you're not purified on earth, Our Lady made it quite known to me, you will have to be purified in a temporary place of waiting, which we know in earth words as purgatory.

And I'm sure that if you realize the feeling, the emotion that exists in my being able to view purgatory through Our Lady's wish that I see this so that I could speak to you of this--I can assure you that it would be much better to suffer that time here on earth than to have to wait with that terrific sense of, of longing to be in union with God that you do when you're in purgatory. It's, the fire itself is a burning sense of loss and just waiting. It's meant to--it's a terrific void in purgatory. Of course, it's not quite as bad as hell because you're not visited by demons. But you're at a loss. You seem to be like a wandering soul. That's the impression I had when Our Lady was showing me, twice already, the souls in purgatory.



Our Lady would like you to know at this time, also, that She would be most happy if those who can, and are able to, will come for the Holy Hour on Sunday from one to two. Because the Holy Hour was started by Our Lady to strengthen the clergy, the priests and the bishops and the cardinals who will be under major attack by satan. Therefore, Our Lady stresses the fact that they need our prayers. And we also have to stand behind them in their trials because many of them are under severe trial.

Our Lady has explained it fully to me. It would take much time to explain this to you, but Our Lady requests, and She says that those who come to Her sacred grounds will receive many graces, graces far in advance of what your human mind could even comprehend. All in the plan of Heaven for the establishment of a place of refuge which Our Lady chose to call Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers.

. . . every life He places upon earth. No one has the right to murder, and no one has the right to say who is to live and who is not to live. Everyone has the right to life. And it also has to be known, Our Lady said, that life begins at the moment of conception. The Father breathes the spirit of life into the womb, and the--actually, at the actual moment of conception life begins. And for those--the enemies of God who say that there is no life until a certain time in the growing of the fetus, that is not true. Anything that grows is living or it would not grow. That alone your common sense would tell you. Therefore, you have to be pretty stupid, or you've got to be falling in line with the enemy's plan and perhaps committing this abominable act yourself, to not be able to truthfully say that anything that grows is living, and therefore, you cannot--thou shalt not kill; that's a breaking of one of the Commandments of the Father, and this, the breaking of this commandment condemns you if you do this on free will and of conscience, what you call as a clear conscience--not a true conscience. But if you do this knowingly, you will be condemned to hell. There is no salvation for those who take the life of any living creature created by God. I don't mean the animals, I mean in the human realm. Abortion is murder, and anyone who says it isn't is just an agent of hell.
