Our Lady--"I know that you are quite confused about your mode of dress this evening. I have not placed the black scarf upon your head for reason. The women of your country shall wear the blue beret. This will be in affiliation with the work of bringing Michael into your country, My child.
"I know that this comes as great surprise to you. I cannot always tell you in advance, My child, of the plan of Heaven. There is much that you must find in due time when the Father appoints the hour."
Veronica--Now the sky is becoming very light. It's very blue, it's a beautiful blue. The light is shining about Our Lady. Our Lady is dressed in a white gown, but She has on a cloak over the gown. It's a beautiful blue. Now Her feet--oh, She's standing with Her feet bare. Oh, Our Lady is without slippers this evening. She's standing now barefooted.
And now She has the blue cloak about Her head, and She's pulling it closer down about Her head, like this.
Our Lady said this will be known as the prayer shawl, the prayer shawl.
Our Lady--"My child, I must caution you in the days ahead. There are many enemies of the Father now in your world. They are in your life, unrecognizable by their human nature.
"You have been living in fear, My child, but this is not necessary. Fear is a tool of satan. However, We understand your human nature. Nothing will be accomplished without the will of the Father. Do not be afeared for your human body. The greatest sorrow would be the loss of the soul.
BODILY AILMENT TO TAKE CHILDREN
"There is great darkness upon your earth. We have sent now a great trial to parents. Many children shall be taken into the Kingdom. Tears will fall from the eyes of parents, but those who are in the light will understand the plan of the Father. We do not wish to have the souls of the young destroyed by the plan of satan. Therefore, many of the young will be taken from the world. Science and man of great learning will not know the secret of this great trial. This trial will be in body ailment. There shall be no cure by human science for it, for it is the hand of God upon man.
"Yes, My child, there have been many miracles of cure given by the Father. In due time, they will be recognized. The one you speak of, My child, you will remain silent, for she will come forward of her own accord.
"As a messenger for the Father, We expect you, My child, to deliver the Message of Heaven; and the rest shall be done through the intercession of the Father upon persons, places, and things.
"There will be many false prophets upon the world; there are many false prophets in the world, My child. They bring doctrines that are not of the truth. A great delusion has been set upon man. Error abounds in the House of God. A House in darkness shall shut its doors, for a band of death will be placed about it.
"Pray, pray much, My children, for many are being led fast into the darkness. The example of the teachers are poor. The example set before the children are those conceived by satan. Confusion, error, and gross half-truths We find in the teaching.
"Satan has entered into the highest places in your civil life, My child, and in the houses of My Son throughout your world. His reign will be short in earth-years. I have not come to your earth to fill you with fear. I have come to prepare you for the days of trial.
"For countless earth-years I have chosen to give you the plan for your salvation. Should you cast this plan aside, you will enter onto the wide road which leads to your destruction. It is of your free will that you will give your soul to satan, or you will lead it onto the path of light. The road to satan is easy in your human nature, but Heaven is earned very hard. Many are called, but so few are chosen.
"It will not be an easy road, My children, to follow My Son. There are days of great persecution approaching. Persevere and the Kingdom of Heaven will be yours.
"You wonder how you shall know those who are in the light and those who have given themselves to satan and act as his agents. I assure you, My children, by their fruits they will be known in time.
Veronica--"Oh, no, Blessed Mother. Must I? . . . Yes."
SATAN IN HOUSE OF GOD
Our Lady--"My child, you cannot keep from fulfilling your mission to bring the Message of Heaven by holding back the truth. Go forward, My child, now, and bring this message to the world: satan has entered into the House of God. He rules now from the highest places. The world and the Church of God is in deep darkness. Those who are in command--many have fallen away. Pray, My children, much, for with your prayers and sacrifices they, too, can be recovered.
"Your country has lost its way. Your country will be cleansed by severe trial, My children. What more can I add to My words of the past but to say: be in readiness, for your hour is at hand."
ST. THOMAS AQUINAS
Veronica--Now I see the sky is growing very bright behind Our Lady. And there is a man coming forward. He's carrying a very--he's dressed in a brown gown, and it's tied about the waist. And he has this cape over his head. He looks sort of like a monk. It's all--he's dressed all in brown.
Now he's coming forward, and he's carrying . . . it's like a staff with a curve on the end of it. And he's holding a very large Book in his hand, in his right hand; the staff is in his left.
Now he's looking over very sadly. His voice is very low. He is saying:
St. Thomas--"You see, my child, the sign of the Book and the staff. It has gone to the left. I carry the staff in my left hand for reason.
"You see the Book, my child. Watch, watch carefully."
Veronica--Oh, the Book that was formerly white is now turning a deep, deep, deep purple. Now it's going from purple to black. The cover has become black. Oh!
Now the man--oh!
Our Lady--"Recognize, My child, who you are talking with."
Veronica--Our Lady now is placing Her hand out, Her right hand, and there's a great light coming about the man who is holding the Book, the very darkened Book, and the staff.
"Oh, Our Lady, I know now. Oh, it's Saint Thomas. Oh!"
Now Saint Thomas is leaning forward.
St. Thomas--"My child, I wrote much about the errors of the time. Many will come and strengthen you in your work, for they will bring forward also the errors of the time."
Veronica--Now I see . . . now Saint Thomas is placing the Book out; it's just suspended in the air. And he's placing his hand forward, like this, as though he's saying no to the Book. No.
And then he's pointing up to the heavens, and up above his head, and there's a great light coming down now. And I see a bird, a beautiful white bird. Oh, it's so beautiful! It's floating, it's not even flying. It's gliding down now. It's over the Book. And it's casting rays, like, the bird. It's--the rays are coming out from under the bird onto the Book. And there's a great--now it sounds like there's a deep, booming noise in the sky; it's--
Now Our Lady is bending over.
Our Lady--"My child, do not be startled. It is the voice of the Father that you will hear. Repeat His words."
MEN OF GOD TEACHING ERROR
Eternal Father--"The Holy Spirit has not entered into the hearts of the men of God. They must starve their souls of the demons which they have allowed to enter upon them. They are teaching in great error. Many have fallen for the love of money. Many will take souls into the abyss with them.
"Turn now from your plan of wickedness. Destroy the Vicar and you will destroy yourselves, for you will hasten Me to send upon you the Ball of Redemption."
Veronica--Now there is a great light coming down, and I see this bird gliding across the sky, over across the eagle. Now it's growing very dark, and it's just--the bird is just going into the sky. It's very dark.
Now Our Lady is coming forward, and She's standing by the right side of the flagpole.
Our Lady--"How many tears, My child, have I shed, great tears of sorrow upon mankind. The irreverence in My Son's House grows daily. O sorrow of sorrows, whatever shall become of you?"
Veronica--Now it's growing very bright, and I see coming down behind Our Lady two large figures. Oh, now there are three. Oh, Our Lady now is bending over, and She's wiping Her hands across Her face. She looks very sad, very sad. And She's pointing over to the left side now.
And oh, over on the left side there's a cross. Oh, I can see it. There's a cross, and Jesus is on the cross. Oh, and Our Lady now is going over. It's growing very dark, and there are two men. There's one on either side of Him. It's growing very dark.
Now Our Lady is going over, and She's kneeling at the feet of Jesus--it's Jesus on the cross. And She's extending Her hands out. Now, slowly, I see blood coming down, dripping down onto Our Lady's hands. She's now kneeling beneath the cross. Now She's placing Her hand out and the angels--I know the angels, the three. It's Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael. They're coming over, and Our Lady is motioning to the cross.
And now She's asking Raphael--Michael has stepped back, and Raphael is coming over. And he's placing a very golden--it's a chalice. He's now kneeling beside Our Lady, and he's holding this goblet-like chalice out. And the blood is just dripping from a wound in Jesus' side. But now as I watch, I see there are more wounds. It's like His Body is becoming covered with, with gashes and wounds.
Now it's getting very dark. Oh! Our Lady now, everything about Her is in darkness. Her robe now even looks dark. Yes, and She's turning now. She's turning and standing up beside the cross. Now She's talking. Her voice is so very low I can barely hear Her.
Our Lady--"My child, I have reason to be of great sorrow, for My Son is passing through a great crucible of suffering, suffering far greater than when He was upon your earth. The Sacrifice of the Lamb continues. How much can a heart tear with sorrow?"
Veronica--Now Our Lady is bent over, and She looks like She's crying. I have never seen anyone so dejected, so sorrowful.
LORD OF LORDS
Now I'm looking over to the right, and I see the figure of a man. He's sitting in a very ornate-looking chair. It's a beautiful chair; it's like a throne. And now above Him there's a great light. And I see the words: "LORD OF LORDS, KING OF KINGS, KING OF THE UNIVERSE, CREATOR OF THE LIVING, RECOVERER OF THE DEAD, RESTORER OF LIFE, HOPE FOR THOSE WHO DESPAIR, REFUGE FOR THE SINNER."
Oh, now I see it's growing very bright. It's--the brightness is covering now the words. They're like disappearing, like smoke from the sky. Now it's growing dark. And I can see, though, the throne. Now upon the throne is the figure of a man. Oh, it's--oh, Our Lady is looking up and pointing.
Our Lady--"My child, none can view the great vision, the beatific vision; none can view this, for it would be that you would be removed from your earthly body. This awaits mankind only over the veil. We send to you only what your human mind can comprehend. Were We to show you, My child, what lies beyond the veil, the beauty, the full encompassment of your emotions would still your earthly heart. This We cannot give to you until you come across the veil.
"There will be, My child, upon earth many chosen to be victims, victims for the mercy of the Father upon mankind.
"The greatest hope, the greatest joy, My child, I can give to mankind is the knowledge that the ultimate victory over satan will be the outcome of the Second Coming of My Son to your earth.
"You must warn--and make haste, My child--warn Our clergy. They are setting the road for the entrance of the greatest one of evil, the exponent of all that the prince of darkness can set upon the world. He is entered among you, and he will bring about the full destruction of mankind.
"Pray much, My child; pray that all who hear My voice and heed the message will act with great haste to bring this message to mankind, for the time grows short for your redemption.
"There have been upon earth many voices heard in Heaven, voices of speculation. Dates are not necessary, My child. What need is there for dates, but that you be prepared at all times. Were I to give you a date, mankind would turn and mend their ways. But of what actual value will this be to the soul of mankind, for when the danger to his human nature is over he will return to his sinful ways. No, My child, I shall not give dates. I shall tell you to be prepared at all times.
"This assurance I will give to My children of the light: they will not be caught unprepared, for I have promised to be with you through the battle ahead.
"You must make a special effort to be with My Son by the tabernacles in His House, houses throughout the world. Unless you eat of His Flesh and drink of His Blood, you cannot have the light within you.
"Do not judge the House of God by the works of man. The foundation of the House of God is the Father in the Son and the Holy Ghost. The foundation that you understand in your human nature is Jesus.
NO BIBLES AFTER 1964-65
"You saw, My child, the Book in great darkness. I have warned you many times to caution those about you not to buy in print any publications after the year of 1964 or 5 earth-years. Grave errors are abounding in these publications.
"You must warn and caution the children of earth not to abandon the Vicar of Christ. The enemies about him seek to set the pace for his downfall. They will bring into print through the medias of your world--your newspapers, your radio, and that agent that you have known as television--grave errors, misquotes, misconceptions, and lies! Know now that these lies were created by satan, for satan is the father of all liars, My child. He is the epitome of deceit and deception.
"What is the darkness, you ask, My child. The darkness I speak of is the great darkness of the spirit. Learn a simple lesson of faith. What does it gain a man if he gains the whole world and suffers the loss of his soul? Would you give a thousand pounds of silver for one day in the abyss?"
FALLING INTO HELL
Veronica--Oh, my goodness! Oh! Oh, I see those horrible things again. They're down now--I see, I'm looking into a very deep hole, a very deep hole. Oh, my goodness! Oh! Now down there I see . . . I know they're human. They're falling. I see faces of great fright. They're frightened. Oh, save them! Save them!
Now all about them--they seem to have lost all weight. They can't control themselves; they're in a floating position, the people, going down into the abyss. It's a very deep hole.
Now at the sides are these horrible creatures. They--I can't describe them in words. They have, they have horrible faces with, with pointed ears, and some have small slit eyes and others have round eyes, deep-set sockets, almost like skulls. But they have all the same kinds of hands and feet. They're like webs, like, like sort of frog-like hands with long nails, claw-like nails. And their feet are not--they have, they look like, might be five toes, but they're all webbed. And they also have long nails. And with the nails of their webbed feet they are clinging onto the sides of the walls of this hole. Oh! Oh, it's horrible. Oh!
"Oh, take me out of here, please, Mother."
Oh! Oh! Oh, now I'm coming up. I can't--I don't want to look down there. Oh! Oh!
Now Our Lady is coming over. Oh, I feel much better. Our Lady now is putting out Her hand, and She says:
Our Lady--"Come, My child. It is a sight that will bring much terror to many. Know now that what you see is loosed upon earth."
MAN OF DECEPTION
Our Lady--"Yes, many will receive the manifestation of seeing with their human eyes these demonical creatures of hell. It is for the edification of mankind. There will be great mysteries; there will be great miracles set upon earth. However, My child, all must be wary because when he, the man of deception, is recognizable to mankind--as he will set you with number upon the path of deception--he, too, will be a figure of virtue. He will be covered as a sheep with robes of purity, but look into his heart, My child."
Veronica--Oh, I see a horrible, black-looking, ugly thing that was down there in the, in the pit. It's inside of this man who--outside he looks, he looks holy and human; but he's actually one of those things--he's actually a creature of hell.
Our Lady--"Now, My child, I will give you one secret unknown to many, but you must make it known to mankind. This man of deception shall try to follow My Son. He will convince many that he is the Messiah. You must make it known now that the Messiah will not come unless He comes down with the legions of angels from the heavens, as He ascended.
"Repeat anew, My child: this false messiah shall not be accepted upon earth. My Son, Jesus, is the only Messiah. He has already come to your earth, but He will return. But He will come down from the heavens as He ascended, with the legions of saints, those who have washed themselves clean with the Blood of the Lamb.
"Now, My children, you are going through the time of test and trial. All that is rotten will fall. The sheep will be separated from the goats.
"There will come upon mankind in due time a great Warning, a great Warning of magnitude beyond human comprehension. And then should you not change your ways, there will come upon mankind one of the greatest chastisements ever seen before, nor ever shall be seen again. Skin will dry up and blow off the bones as though it had never been. Many eyes will see and yet not perceive the truth, so much have they blinded themselves to the truth of the light, turning away from their God and giving themselves to the lures of the world that has now turned to satan.
"My child, your revelations, the Message from Heaven, will bring great trial upon you. Know now that is your consecration--it has been your consecration to go forward with purpose, self-denial, for the salvation of souls.
"There is a plan to deceive the nations. A delusion is allowed by the Father. This is the delusion that you accept upon earth that casts the darkness into the souls of mankind. This delusion I can give you, My child, in few words. It is a delusion evolved from humanism, brotherhood, modernism, all covered by the evils of satan. Deception upon deception. O heresy, mournful heresy! Whatever shall become of you? Why have you cast aside the truth?
"The cross of My Son is now becoming the cross of man. Man does not set himself to honor God through My Son, Who is God! No! He has set up man to worship as an idol.
"Return to the light and cast aside this deception, My children, for you only bring upon yourselves a punishment far greater than ever has been seen upon earth, and never shall be seen again. For when you go through this great Chastisement, there will be few creatures left upon earth."
Veronica--Now I see coming through the sky a tremendous, huge ball. Oh, it's like a giant sun. But as it's traveling through the sky now, it seems to be turning colors--white and orange, and spinning so fast that it's like it's hurtling through space. It has a tremendous heat. It feels like I'm just watching it, standing so close to it, and it's awfully hot. Oh! Oh!
Oh, now as it's going through space, I see now it's going towards a very large ball. But now as I'm looking at it, the other ball is coming close to--no, it's like, it's a globe of the world. Now this ball is coming.
And now Our Lady is coming forward.
COMET DESTROYS LARGE CITY
Our Lady--"Watch, My child, what is to be."
Veronica--Now I'm looking into a street. It's a very large city. And I see people pointing up to the sky, and they look like they are filled with terror. They're running and they're screaming. And I see mothers with children in their arms, and they're running. They're all running, but they seem to be running from the city. They're going out into the country. And I see them running. Oh!
But now as they look back, a great voice is saying: "Don't look back. Take what you have and flee!"
Oh, my goodness! Oh, I see, back--if I look back I see what looks like bodies, but I can't recognize them because they look--oh, they look like they've been burned, burned black.
Now I see--everything is flattened back there. It looked like it was a city, but it's flat. And there's smoke rising, and everything looks like it was just knocked over like a stack of cards. Oh! Oh!
It doesn't--I'm looking now--it's so quiet; there isn't anything there. It looks like a very large city, but there's no one there.
Now I'm looking out--I'm standing, and Our Lady said:
Our Lady--"Look, My child, out there. The mariners are weeping."
Veronica--Mariners weeping? Now out on the water there are ships out on the sea. And I see something very strange. I see the men there. They're all holding their hands to their faces. And they look like they're actually crying. The men are crying. And then one man is saying: "But that I could have the dust to throw over my head of that once great city. Oh, Babylon the great, you have fallen!" They're all looking now onto the--over towards the land, and the land is just like it has been completely destroyed.
Now it's getting dark, it's growing very dark. Now over to the left, right around the trees, is a beautiful blue light. Oh, oh, it's--Our Lady is coming forward. Now Our Lady has on a beautiful white gown. And Her robe is white--no, it's almost a cream color.
"Oh, Blessed Mother."
Now Our Lady is coming forward. She looks very pretty. She's over by the tree and She's coming forward. And She has Her beautiful white beads in Her hand.
Now She's motioning to listen.
Our Lady--"My child, how many warnings have I sent upon the world, and yet they go unheeded.
"I wish that you make known, or refresh the memory of My children with My visit to the land of Fatima."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is pointing to the sky, and there are very large letters written in the sky: "F-A-T-I-M-A."
Now Our Lady is coming over. She's very beautiful. Oh, now I--
Our Lady--"Yes, My child, I perceive that you feel much better at this time. It is not but a thing of sorrow to see what lies before mankind should he persist on his present course.
"My child, I may speak to you in confidence, or I will give you the choice of recording this for your knowledge.
"Since you have chosen to give this to mankind--I had expected this of you, My child--you will learn another simple lesson of the Father. Do not expect to be recognized by mankind, for his reward is not worth, My child, your effort. Do your work as given, expecting no reward or recognition from mankind. For the Father has a special plan for all He chooses to do His work.
"You see, My child, it is well worth waiting for, for when you receive glorification from mankind you have already received your reward. I know, My child, that that you do not want, for you have been given the opportunity to know what lies ahead. You choose well.
"The road to martyrdom, My child, is not one that would be accepted in your human nature. However, all who enter the Kingdom of the Father must carry the cross.
"Know, My child, now, that all are being separated. Many are already marked with the sign of the beast or the mark of the cross. In your perfection you will be given this insight to recognize the enemies of your God. Pray much that you be guided by the Holy Spirit, and that you may fulfill to the greatest of glory of the Father, your mission of reaching mankind with the message. We will give you many arms in your struggle to set this message upon the world.
"We ask that you pray much. Pray for those in the House of God who have lost their way. Many mitres are now going onto the road to perdition. Pray for them, for it is of great sorrow to Our hearts to see a man of God fall from his mission.
"Satan has entered into the highest places of the Church.
"Pray much. I have asked you in the past to help patch the cracks. The bark of Peter flounders.
"You will stand fast with Our Vicar. Do not allow your hearts, through your ears and human senses, to be misled. The enemies of God send out false interpretations.
"You will read as I have instructed, My children, many times, the Book of life, the Bible. It is with knowledge that you will have this power to recognize those who walk in error, who teach in error or outright deception. You will recognize in this way those who are the enemies of the Father.
SONS OF SATAN
"Yes, My child, the words were not misquoted. My Son did use the words 'the sons of satan.' The sons of satan do the work of satan, for their father is the father of all liars. These sons of satan have worked many years to tear down the House of God, but they shall not succeed.
"It is sad, My child, to know that those who We have chosen have set themselves in conspiracy against the House of My Son. For the love of money many will sell their souls. They care more for the pleasures of earth than for the eternal glory of the Kingdom of the Father. How sad it will be, the weeping, the gnashing of teeth, when they come over the veil and know that they will long for what may have been.
OBEDIENCE FIRST TO GOD
"My child, there is much confusion in the world. We ask obedience--yes, We ask, My child, obedience. But this story I must repeat to you. It is one of truth. Your obedience is to the Father in Heaven. Abraham, directed to give his son as sacrifice: it is the law of God, as written by Moses, that thou shalt not kill; but when the Father had asked this sacrifice, he, Abraham, listened unto God, and knew that the law of God first and above all is, 'Thou shalt honor the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, with thy whole mind, and with thy whole body.'
"All who desecrate the temple of the Spirit, the body, shall set themselves on the road to eternal damnation. For the body is the temple of the Holy Spirit."
Veronica--Now I see a very bright light, and there is a large figure coming forward. Oh, it's an angel. But he has a black band across his chest, and I see in his hand a sword. And he's standing now forward. And now he has the sword in his right hand, and he's pointing it down. I feel as though I am looking up from the earth, and he's pointing the sword down. And in his left hand he has a skull. It's like a--it's a skull, just no skin on it, a skull in his left hand.
Now up above in the sky I see letters forming: D-E-A-T-H: "DEATH TO THE BODY."
Now I see over to the right many crosses, many, many crosses. But standing before these crosses are figures of people, but they have on long white gowns. They don't look unhappy. They have on long white gowns. I see hundreds of them.
Now Our Lady is coming forward.
Our Lady--"You are looking, My child, upon the many martyrs who will come from your earth before this battle has ended. The battle that rages now, My child, upon earth is not one of the body but of the spirit. The spirits of wickedness and darkness now fight the light.
"When the peak of iniquity has gained its fullness, know that the end is at hand. The Father will allow this as a chastisement to His children.
"Pray much, My children; wear your sacramentals. All who keep the monuments in their homes will be saved."
Veronica--Our Lady means the statues.
Our Lady--"Yes, My child, the statues.
"Keep pure and holy thoughts in your mind, for all others are the creation of satan. As long as you remain on earth in your earthly body, you will have a strong battle against the forces of darkness. Come victorious through this darkness, carrying the light. My Son has given you the light, and you will go forward as candles through the darkness."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is raising Her cross on Her Rosary. It's a beautiful, large cross, golden. And the Rosary is beautiful. Her Rosary is very white, but as Our Lady now is turning it catches the tremendous light that's about Our Lady and it makes the beads glow like they're pink. They're a beautiful pink color. But no, there is almost a blue in them, too. Oh, they're beautiful! Our Lady is smiling, and She says:
Our Lady--"I promise you, My child, one day you will hold these beads.
"Yes, Theresa is there on the road. Remember, you will find her with her arms filled with roses as she told you.
"Yes, My child, he is here with us. Have you not recognized his writing? [Veronica had recognized the handwriting of her deceased son, Raymond, in a miraculous photograph.]
Veronica--Oh. Oh. [Veronica sobs quietly.] Oh, now Our Lady is reaching over. She's touching my face.
Our Lady--"Dry your tears, My child. I know they are tears of joy; but you can never be rid of this sorrow of heart, for you are human. So do not be ashamed that you shed tears. I, too, My child, shed tears, for I was human. That is the price, My child, of being mortal.
"All this will be in the past when you come over the veil. There will be no tears, no sorrow, no wonder. All will be revealed to you in an instant. Joy supreme will reign--the glorification of the spirit, happiness beyond anything your human mind could comprehend. Is this not worth, My child, the struggle? Can you cast any of this aside for the temporary pleasures of your life on earth--a life so short, when over the veil it is eternity.
"I know, My child. Should you mortify yourself and repeat it, it is of your will."
Veronica--"I do have a terrible temper. Yes, Blessed Mother, I do get awful angry at times. I do. I'll try to get it together. Oh, I remember--silence, then it won't come out."
Our Lady--"My child, you must remember: it is not what goes in that will destroy your soul; it is what comes out."
Veronica--"Sorry. I'm sorry, Blessed Mother. Oh."
Our Lady--"That is quite normal, My child. You are still human. Pray much, and you will be spared from having anything come out that will set you to have deeper penance. Each time that you spot your soul, We shall have to send severe penance; so better you avoid this, My child. We do not wish for you to do penance across the veil; therefore, in your human state you must suffer much. It is this manner that is used by the Father to prepare you when you come over the veil. That is the secret, My child, of suffering. For We keep, as you would say in your human language, a sheet for scoring: those of merit, and those that do not add to merit. Each side with non-merit We cleanse by suffering, trials.
"Learn, My children, the value of suffering. They are sent to you for reason, for much of your suffering is your salvation. Think, My children; use the God-given facilities of the mind in the light. Know the value of suffering and you will accept it in the will of the Father."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is extending Her hand over Her head with Her Rosary, like this, and She's making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
RECOGNITION OF GROUNDS
Our Lady--"Continue, My child, with the prayers of atonement.
"Many graces will be given from this center of atonement. Soon there will be a recognition. However, My child, you will close your ears and eyes to any glorification of the world. Know that this is all in the will of the Father and is not the will of man. However, the prayers of the people have risen to the Father. They are gathered for the glorification of the Father in the redemption of souls. Many souls shall be released from purgatory through your efforts.
"I bless you In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
"My Son will soon be here to bless your sacramentals, and He has a word of great caution to you, My child. You will sit now and await His coming."
Veronica--[To a worker who was assisting her to rise from her knees:] No, no. I'm very weak.
Worker--Put your weight on our arms.
Veronica--I know. It's just that--I just need, I just need strength. Just a minute.
Now Our Lady--it's just the--She said the transition back. It's the transition back, Our Lady said. I'm very weak. I'm very dizzy. I'll be all right. Our Lady said it only takes two minutes.
[Note: Veronica always mentioned feeling very weak after receiving the message, and here Our Lady explains the reason.]
Veronica--On the instructions of Our Lady, this is for notification:
U.S. WOMEN TO WEAR BLUE BERET
Our Lady--"I request that those in the United States wear now the emblem that I have perceived. You are to wear the blue beret. But in praying, you will cover your head with the shawl. This will be for the members of the legions that I have set upon the world in your country. My child, you will understand in due time.
"The blue, My child, is the color I chose for the women in your country, but they will cover their heads with the shawl during prayers. I know that this amazes you much and you do not understand, but I will explain it to you fully later, My child.
"You must remember it will be the women of the United States that will wear the blue beret, the women. We wish that the men adopt the wearing of the white beret, as We know that the direction from the country you have joined in the fight against satan with is being directed by the Father.
"The men of the United States will wear the white berets. The women of the United States will wear the blue berets, and wear, as My direction, the prayer shawl. White berets for the men, blue for the women of the United States. Yes, My child, you will receive one from your brethren."
Veronica--"Yes. Yes, Blessed Mother. Yes."
Our Lady--"Continue, My children, with your prayers."
Veronica--"Oh, yes. Yes."
Our Lady--"Don't worry, My child. There is nothing impossible with the Father."
WOMEN SUBJECT TO HUSBANDS
Veronica--The women will not wear the name of Michael, for the women will be--their honored place will be with their husbands, Our Lady said. Therefore, they will wear a plain blue hat. The husband shall be the head of the family and wear the emblem of Michael, and he will keep his wife--
Oh! Our Lady said he will do--oh, dear! Our Lady said--oh, in my own human words, that he will put his wife back into her place where she belongs. Our Lady said that the women are not women; they are men. And they must be returned to their role as women and mothers. Therefore, they will wear the blue cap in signification of their honor to their husbands.
Our Lady--"My child, I am giving you a different voice because I want you to sound exactly as I do.
[In the following two paragraphs, Veronica's voice changed to a rapid, much higher pitch.]
"They will wear the blue berets, for they will not be above their husbands. They will do as they have done in the past in honor of the Father; and in the path of the Father, they will listen to their husbands and honor their husbands within the home. If they do thus, they will receive honor from their children. The example in the homes is very, very poor.
"So husbands, now, you will act with love to your wives, but you will keep them in discipline. Many of them have lost their way. Discipline. And wives, honor your husbands and do your role as mothers in honor to your God. We see the example of the homes is very poor.
"It is not without meaning that We have chosen these colors. Womanhood must be returned to the state in which the Father created it. Right at this moment a great chastisement is coming upon you, for you have cast aside your role as women. This you will not do without receiving great chastisement.
"There will be division in homes unless the fathers stand forth as examples to their sons and daughters, and the mothers return to their roles as mothers in the light of God, the Father.
"That is all, My child."
Veronica--All who are able, please kneel.
Veronica--Oh, there's Jesus! Now Jesus is coming forward. He's on the right side of the flagpole. Oh, He's dressed all in a burgundy-red robe. Oh, now He has on a cream-colored gown, and brown sandals on His feet. He looks very beautiful. The light is very strong. Oh, it's very beautiful. And--oh, yes. I could just stay here and just look at Jesus.
Jesus--"My child, I notice that you are quite overwhelmed by the manifestations in photographs. Yes, many will not be understood by man. They are graces far beyond what most minds can comprehend. But they are the messages in secret that you will need for the propagation of the work. I would advise, as they read the photographs, that they pray for guidance to the Holy Spirit so that they will understand fully."
Veronica--Now Jesus is coming closer. He's going over to the right side of the flagpole, near the trees. Now I--oh, it's getting very bright. And Our Lady is coming; Our Lady is joining Him over by the trees. Oh, She looks very beautiful. Our Lady has on the white robe, and Her gown is very, very white. The light is making it look almost like a milk-white--beautiful! And around Our Lady's covering over Her head--it's like one complete robe that covers Her head down to Her feet, and it's trimmed in a gold braid, a golden braid. It's a beautiful color gold.
Now Our Lady is taking the Rosary which She had at Her waist-- Our Lady had it round about Her waist, and She's holding it forward now. And Jesus is looking over and smiling. Now Jesus is turning.
Jesus--"Extend your sacramentals, My children, for they will be given the power for conversion and cure for the propagation of the work from Heaven. Your mission will be as disciples of the Father for the salvation of souls."
Veronica--Now Jesus is raising His hand in front of Him, like this, and He's making the sign of the cross with His three fingers: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Jesus is shifting His robe. It's very long, and He always carries it on His left arm so that . . . . It's a little windy. Now Jesus is floating over. He doesn't walk; He just seems to glide on the air. And Our Lady is following behind Him. And now above Our Lady it's very bright, and there's a circlet of, like a crown about Our Lady's head. It's very beautiful. It looks like a crown of diamonds or stars--beautiful! Oh, it goes right about Our Lady's head.
Now Jesus is coming, and He's facing now--He's right by the right side of the flagpole. And He's looking down, and He's now putting His hand in front of Him, 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 Our Lady is going over by the side of Jesus. Now They're both coming over to the left side of the flagpole. And now Jesus is looking down, and He's smiling. And now He's placing His hand out, like this, in front of Him: all the fingers together, 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 Our Lady, too, has Her Rosary now. In both Her hands there's a very large, beautiful Rosary, and the crucifix is gold. And Our Lady is now holding Her crucifix forward, and from the crucifix there are rays, tremendous, brilliant rays coming from the cross.
And Our Lady is saying:
Our Lady--"Recognize, My children, the power of the cross."
Veronica--Oh, the rays are just coming down in every direction. It's beautiful! But they're almost like, now--oh, they're so bright they're like bright, brilliant tongues of fire, but white fire. It's beautiful.
Oh, now it's going--the light seems to be now going almost back into the crucifix that Our Lady is carrying. And She's turning now to face Jesus. And Jesus now is going over to the middle--He's between, now, the trees and the flagpole on the left side. Now He's placing His hand in front of Him, and now He's looking down 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 Our Lady is coming over, and She's standing now by the trees, just--oh, above that second wide band. And Our Lady is looking down now, and She's smiling and She's pointing over--there's someone under the trees. And now She's motioning to Jesus. And Jesus is bending down now, and He's making--oh, He's raising His hand above His head, like this, and bending over and making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Jesus is placing His hand now on His heart, like this, and He's coming over now to the middle of the flag--by the flagpole and the tree. And He said:
Jesus--"My children, all that I speak and spoke of in the past should not be accepted as symbolism. It is a reality. But only will you understand My words and the writings of the prophets of old when you give yourself in the light and ask for the Holy Spirit to enlighten you. Do not allow the forces of darkness to cloud your mind. Pray for the light."
Veronica--In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Our Lady and Jesus are going back, back behind the flagpole. Now it's growing quite dim.
But Our Lady now is coming over. She says:
Our Lady--"My children, continue with your prayers. I do not leave. I am always present on My grounds. I have asked that you come here. When you come with your burdens, they will be lightened. Graces of conversion, graces of cure, they are being given in abundance. Ask and you shall receive. None are turned away without results."
Veronica--In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
