Veronica--. . . a very light blue, a beautiful blue shade. And now I see, I see a great star; it has three points. And written above it are the letters T-R-I-N-I-T-Y: "TRINITY."
Now it's growing much brighter over by the left side of the flagpole. And I see, I see a man on a cross. The cross is lying almost horizontal. But no, both sides of the cross have long cords. And I see there's a man on the cross, and the cross is being pulled across the sky a long way. And it's very strange; the cross is being pulled by--I can see they are clergy, cardinals and bishops. Now the man on the cross--oh, the man on the cross is the Holy Father, Pope Paul.
Now--oh, there's a beautiful blue light now forming just to the right of the flagpole. And the very sky is opening, and it's like the sky is just filled with pale blue clouds. And as they're opening, I can see--oh, Our Lady is coming forward. Oh! Oh, She looks so beautiful! Our Lady is dressed in a white gown, but She has on a very pale blue cloak over Her head and down to Her, Her feet. Now Our Lady has on a pair of sandals; I can see Her toes. The sandals are a pale gold in color. They're very bright and brilliant, because as Our Lady now is moving forward the light is very bright. It's very, very hard on your eyes, it's so bright.
Now Our Lady is bending over.
POPE PAUL CRUCIFIED
Our Lady--"My child, the scene that you have just witnessed is in the present. Our Vicar and your Father on earth is being crucified by those who have pledged themselves to follow him in obedience. It saddens the heart of all in Heaven to observe the disobedience of the children of earth to Our Vicar. These seeds of disobedience have been sown by satan.
"Your world is now in anguish; your world is in deep darkness of the spirit. I have been given this time, My children, to bring you a stern Message from Heaven. Because of your great abominations, because of your pride and disobedience, because of your turning from your Maker, the Creator of Heaven and of earth, there will be sent upon the world, your world, a sword of great magnitude.
"The scoffers have turned their backs upon the truth. Those who ridicule the Message from Heaven will find themselves sadly awakened in the near future.
"Your country has given itself to destruction; your country wallows now in filth and abominations; but most of all, your country, most glorious, given much in abundance by the Father, has fed the human and destroyed the soul!
"I had promised, My children, in the past to protect you. I can no longer extend this promise, for the balance is heavily to the left. The Father plans to chastise those He loves. The numbers of souls falling into hell are as numerous and more plentiful now than the snowflakes that fell in your wintertime.
"Yes, My child, there will be sent upon mankind a great Chastisement. The Ball of Redemption hovers near. The Father extends His hand. His heart beats waiting, His heart all-merciful for you. But the sands in the hourglass are running out.
"The Spirit of truth, My children, has been sent to you countless numbers of times in the present and the past. Many have rejected them, choosing to set themselves onto the road of error and damnation. Pride, intellectual pride in the House of God, is more a formidable barrier than outright licentiousness! This barrier destroys! Strip yourselves of this pride and arrogance! Return to your state of poverty of the body and meekness of the soul! Unless you make yourselves like unto the little children, you will not enter into the Kingdom.
"There are upon your earth now many voice-boxes for Heaven. I have come to you, My children, in numerous places and to many people throughout your world. The Father has sent Me to you as a Mediatrix.
"I Who knew the temptations of the world had to fight and struggle as you do, My children, for I am not unaware of your problems. But I have set before you the plan for your salvation. Of free will many have tossed My words, not harkening, aside. They steep themselves in deceit and the pleasures of the flesh, all of a temporal nature, casting aside the truth in knowledge that all life upon your earth must one day come to an end.
"You all, as human creations of the Father, must return to your Creator and you will be judged as the seed you have sown: as it has flourished and grown a true, straightened stalk with pure waters, a credit to your Creator, in the battle against satan. But no! Many of you have become weak. You have chosen to go onto the wide road, preferring the pleasures of the flesh and the gain of worldly goods.
"You will be taken from your earthly life as you entered it, with nothing but the graces you have accumulated or rejected in your lifetime upon earth. Are you, My children, prepared for this? Have you prepared yourselves and your children? Many of you will not . . . [words not clear] of the years that you expect. You do not know the day nor the hour.
"There is a plan in Heaven for every life that the Father places upon the earth. Your world has steeped itself in murder. Thou shalt not kill! All who have given themselves to this lust and murder shall be set into the abyss and suffer eternal damnation. Sin, the most abominable of offenses to the Father, has become a way of life with many now. Whatever shall become of your children? The example of many parents is poor. There will be many tears shed upon earth and much gnashing of teeth in those days. Your future, your future, you ask; your future is now!"
Veronica--I see . . . it's a seat, a large seat covered in red velvet. And all about it is a gold trim. And the back of the seat has a, a back that's very ornate. It has a crown, a golden crown, set into the back of the seat. Now there's a man sitting upon the seat. Oh, he's a very kindly-looking man, but he looks like he's quite old. His beard is very white and long. On his head there is a crown. It's made of red velvet. And on top there are two golden spokes, and on top of the spokes there is a huge cross. Now the man in the seat, he's raising--he has a scepter, sort of like a cane-like scepter, almost like a shepherd's crook, one of those shafts. And he's pointing over to the left side of the sky.
Oh, my goodness! I see coming out of the sky a very large ball. It's twirling, it's coming at a very great speed. And now it's hot. Oh! Oh! Oh, my goodness! It's a huge ball. I'm almost very close to it now. I can feel the heat. Oh! And I see colors now coming from around the ball: yellow and pale pink. Oh, it's, it's a ball of fire. Oh, my goodness! Oh! Oh!
And now--oh,oh, my! And now I'm down here and I can see the man sitting on the throne. He's very kindly-looking. He's very old, but he's very kindly-looking. Now written above his head there are letters forming in the sky now in golden colors. And they're very brilliant. And it says: "THE ETERNAL FATHER." Oh, "THE ETERNAL FATHER." Oh!
Now the Eternal Father is pointing with His scepter over to the area again where that terrible ball was. And now there are words forming in the sky: "WAR": W-A-R. And then underneath I see a great explosion. It's, it's like a big picture of a mushroom, like. Oh, my goodness! Oh!
And now Our Lady is coming forward. She looks very sad. Now She's coming over to the left side of the flagpole and bending down.
Our Lady--"My child, you will shout from the rooftops. Do not hesitate in your mission. Do not be set back by the opinion of mankind. Shout it from the roof, My child: wars are a punishment for man's sins. There will be a great War, My child. Oh, I am truly, truly the Mother of Sorrows! Your world will go up in great smoke, My child."
Veronica--Oh! Oh! Oh!
Our Lady--"You are frightened, My child. I do not wish to set fear upon you. But you must see what will befall mankind very soon unless you and others work with great haste to send the message and warning from Heaven. You must not slacken in your mission, My child. Pray for the light and you will be given the strength."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is rising high up by the flagpole. And now the sky is opening up. Oh, I can see Michael. I recognize Michael. He's very large. He's coming down next to Our Lady. He covers the whole sky. Our Lady looks very tiny next to Michael. And Michael now has a spear in his right hand.
St. Michael--"Soon, my child, you will see the spear dipped in blood."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is coming forward.
TIME GROWS SHORT
Our Lady--"My child, you do not understand the words. As My guardian, he, too, wishes to warn you that the time is growing short. Mankind brings down upon itself a great sword. The penance will be hard. All who remain with My Son in the light will have no reason to fear. They will go through these days with much courage and perseverance.
"The greatest measure of responsibility, My children, will fall upon the parents, to see that their children's souls are guarded from contamination. You must pray much in your homes so that you will not be misled. Satan has set upon the world many agents. They work and plan and never sleep, planning the destruction of the human soul. Recognize the faces of evil about you. They will not come in recognizable form or face. Being human, they will not appear to you in their diabolical, supernatural state. They must work through the bodies of men and women, and even--sadly, My child--children.
"Do not cast aside the armor, the material armor given to you by the Father. You will wear your armor, not as decoration but for protection! Do not take your armor from about your necks because you listen to the jests of others. It is satan who has set them against you.
"My child, remember the words well that I will now give you. Repeat them daily: beware of an evil force that surrounds a shrine of purity. They will seek to stop you with all cunning and deception. So heed the warning of Heaven and the archangels. They have been sent to protect you. Pray much for the light. Beware of an evil force that surrounds a shrine of purity. They will try to stop you with all cunning and deception.
"Michael must be entered into the House of God. Return him or you will fall. A House in darkness, a Church in darkness wears a band of death about it. All that is rotten will fall!
"My child, I am filled with great despair."
Our Lady--"I despair for the numbers of souls who have hardened their hearts and given themselves to satan. The most despicable of abominations We view upon earth. Nothing is hidden to the Father. You will not escape your just judgment. Remember, My children, Noe, Sodom; whatever will you receive now when your sins cry to Heaven for retribution?
VICTIM SOULS NEEDED
"The Father, My child, gave you a great reprieve upon your earth. His heart is all-merciful, not wishing for one to be lost. But now the time has come to separate the sheep from the goats. Pray much, My children. Make many acts of penance, sacrifice. Many victim souls are needed in the days ahead, victims to the merciful love of the Father--those who are willing to give of themselves for the repatriation of another soul. Give, and all will be given to you by the Father. For it is truly, My children, in giving that you shall receive.
"Repeat once more, My child, the warning to mankind: All who have been either accessories or prominent in the murders of the unborn, and do this of free will and conscience, shall be condemned to the eternal fires of the abyss, hell! Murder is rampant; life as you know it no longer is viewed from Heaven. We see man a creature of lust, murderous of heart, without scruples, hoarders of wealth, starving the righteous. The sword of destruction will claim many!
"Prepare yourself, My child, for a great test. There is no reason to fear, for the Father will turn all evil to good.
"You will sit now, My child, until My Son is here with us."
Veronica--Oh, the sky is opening up. It's just beautiful! Oh, the light is so bright it hurts my eyes. Oh! Oh, Jesus is coming down. Jesus is coming down now. Now before Him now His feet, Jesus' feet are bare. Oh, He hasn't any slippers on. Oh, He thinks that's funny, but He has no slippers on. But His robe, His gown is very long. It's only when the wind blows I can see His feet. Now Jesus is coming down by the right side of the flagpole. He's smiling. And now He's taking His cloak--Jesus has on a . . . oh, it's a burgundy-colored cloak, and it's tied at His neck by a band of brown-colored cloth. It's like a piece of leather. And it's tied now at His neck. And now Jesus is taking the cloak and He's putting it on His left arm. Oh, He is saying:
Jesus--"That, My child, is that I may have My right arm free."
Veronica--Oh! Now Jesus is coming forward. Oh, and I see now Our Lady is coming through the clouds. There's forming a beautiful blue and white grouping of clouds, and they seem to be--oh, Our Lady seems to be floating on the clouds. And they're bringing Her very close now. Jesus is moving forward. And Our Lady now is on the right side of Jesus. Oh, She's very beautiful! Now with Her are--oh, I see some nuns. Oh, I recognize the nuns. Oh! Oh, it's Saint Theresa. Oh, it's Saint Theresa, and there are three other nuns with her. Oh, they're her sisters? Oh, yes. Now they're coming forward very close now.
Jesus is coming forward. He's standing now--oh, is He going to step on the banner? Oh, no. Oh, Jesus is standing just above the banner now, on the right side, very close to the ground. Now He's looking down. Now Jesus is putting His hands together like this, and He's making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Jesus is turning His head over, and He's looking down over by the trees.
Jesus--"Do not discomfort yourself, My child. It is not necessary to open your pocketbook. I assure you I can see into it."
Veronica--Oh! Now Jesus is smiling.
Jesus--"You will extend, My children, all sacramentals if you have them at hand. However, I can bless them with the blessing of the Trinity without your removing them from their bagging. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."
Veronica--Now Jesus is floating up; He's going high up. The air seems to carry Him. He just floats right up to the top. Oh, now He's crossing across to the left side of the flagpole, and Our Lady is right behind Him, and the four nuns. Theresa's up front, and there are two nuns now that are going to the side of Theresa, and the other one is behind her. And they're coming now over to the left side. And now Jesus is looking down, and He's putting His hand down now in front of Him, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Jesus is coming down and He's looking down by the tree. Now He's placing His hand out like this, and from His hands--oh, my! There are rays coming from Jesus' hands; there are streams of very bright light. Oh, my goodness! They're coming down now onto the left side here of the grounds. And oh, my goodness! Oh, they're very, very bright.
Now Jesus is looking up and over the trees, and He's pointing now to the sky. We're to look up. Oh, my! There written in the sky--He's pointing over to the trees--it says: "FAITHFUL AND TRUE. FAITHFUL AND TRUE. FAITHFUL AND TRUE." It's written three times: "FAITHFUL AND TRUE."
Now Jesus is looking down, and He's placing His hand in front of Him now. He's coming down by the trees. And Our Lady is right there. Now Our Lady is taking Her Rosary, which She has about Her waist. It's a beautiful Rosary. It's all white, the beads, and the Our Father is this large golden bead. And Our Lady now is taking the crucifix and holding it before Her. It's--oh, it's so beautiful! It's made of gold; I can see it. And She now is extending it out in front of Her: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Jesus is looking to Our Lady, And Our--He's nodding. And Our Lady now is coming down very close to the trees next to the--oh!
Our Lady--"My child, make it known to all those who have accepted Our invitation to come to these consecrated and sacred grounds that there will be an abundance of cure and conversion--cure of the spirit and cure of the body, return to the Faith. All this will be accomplished by your prayers and your tests of faith."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is placing the crucifix in front of Her and blessing: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Now Our Lady is holding the beads out in front of Her. Now the beads--now She's putting them into Her hands, and She's taking something out from Her side. Oh, it's a large Scapular. Now Our Lady--
Our Lady--"Repeat, My child, after Me: With this armor shall We defeat satan--My beads of prayer and the pledge of sacrifice for eternal salvation."
Veronica--And Our Lady is holding up the Scapular. It has a picture of Our Lady on it. And now it's growing very large and it's glowing.
Our Lady--"It glows, My child, for it signifies the power of faith."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is now taking Her hand away. And I can't see what happened to the Scapular; it's disappeared. Oh, now Our Lady is rising. She's starting to go backwards, up over the banner. And now She's coming over to the right side of the flagpole. And Jesus is now behind Her. And now Our Lady is bending forward.
Our Lady--"Continue, My children, with your prayers of atonement. Not a moment must be wasted, for the time grows short, the time for your recovery of the many souls that have gone into the darkness. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen."
[At the end of the vigil, Veronica had everyone repeat the Ten Commandments, on the instructions of Our Lady:]
Veronica--One: I am the Lord thy God. Thou shall not have strange gods before Me.
Thou shall not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
