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

"Believe what you see at Garabandal!... Should this great Miracle be cast aside and rationalized by atheistic, scientific man, I assure you, My children, the Chastisement will come upon you with great force."

July 15, 1974

Eve of Our Lady of Mount Carmel

Veronica--The sky around the trees is becoming very blue. It is Our Lady's blue color; it's a very deep blue. There's no way to explain it, because it's a blue that I know hasn't been captured here either by a brush or by man's even creative mind. The heavenly blue color is so beautiful that it gives you a complete feeling of warmth and goodness just looking at it.

Now the light is becoming much larger. Oh, and Our Lady is coming now from behind the trees. Oh, Our Lady is beautiful! Oh, She is dressed all in white--oh, a very shining white gown. And about Her head is this cloak. Now the cloak is trimmed in a golden trim. Oh, it's just beautiful!

Now Our Lady is smiling. The light is so bright, I can't see Her face too well. But I can see Her features because She's smiling. Now Our Lady is floating over--oh, it's becoming very bright about Her. There's a white light now forming by Our Lady. She's between the two trees.

Now She's holding above Her head--no, She's pointing. It's not being held, but there's a big white cross now forming in the sky over Our Lady's head. Now the cross is floating away from Our Lady.

Oh, Our Lady has upon Her head a most beautiful circlet of stars. Oh, they're just beautiful! Oh! Now the cross, the white cross, it looks like it's almost formed from a cloud. It's floating over to the middle of the--between the flagpole and the tree. Now underneath there's a large ball. Oh, now the cross is being set down upon the ball. Now Our Lady is floating over, and She's pointing to the ball with the cross on the top. Oh!

Our Lady says:


Our Lady--"My child, a heavy cross will be placed upon the world. Know that there will-- [Sound of excited talking can be heard.]

"My child, please ask for quiet. There is much irreverence.


"Now you understand, My child, why I have asked that My beads of prayer be spoken at the time of the message I give to you. You must keep satan from the grounds. He will not enter upon My grounds, but he will send agents to distract and cause discord.


"I repeat, My child, a heavy cross will be placed upon your world.

"Satan has set himself to do great battle in My Son's House. Hurry! Shout from the rooftops! Warn all of Our clergy that they are under heavy attack by the agents of darkness. They must not be misled. Their influence is great over the young.

"Many who carry high honor in My Son's House by their rank have set themselves into My Son's House with black hearts. They come to destroy; they have been sent to destroy. But they shall not destroy! A House in darkness must close its doors. Error, evil, destruction of the youth, the souls contaminated by dark waters--this shall not be tolerated by the Father.

"All who have given themselves to the fleshpots of the world have received their reward. All who have sold their souls to get to the head in My Son's House, they have received their reward. The abyss of hell is open wide. None shall escape a just judgment from the Father. This judgment will come soon upon you in force!

"I have told you, My children, in many places, through countless earth-years, of a coming great Chastisement to mankind. Many there are who have cast aside these words, for the faith has grown weak in the hearts of many. Do not take My words idly. I have been sent by the Father, through His merciful love of a degenerate generation, to save you. Every chance, every means of salvation has been offered to you. The time is running out.

"There will be a great War. In this war many lives shall be lost, both young and old. None shall escape the fury of this War. There also will be a great spectacle in the heavens. Learn by this wonderful spectacle!




"I can't repeat it? It's beautiful! Oh!"

Our Lady--"My child, many will see and still not believe, so great is the darkness of the spirit. Believe what you see at Garabandal!

"No, My child, it will not be removed by mankind. It has been four long years, but I promised you that you would see this, My child.

"The forces, the evil forces, My child, of 666 will lead a band of fools against Garabandal.

"The majesty of God will be much evident at this time. Should this great Miracle be cast aside and rationalized by atheistic, scientific man, I assure you, My children, the Chastisement will come upon you with great force.

"The cataclysm spoken of through the ages must come about soon. All who remain in the light, all who have been with My Son in the tabernacles of the world, all who have solaced His injured heart shall go through this trial in much less of fright than will be experienced by those who have given themselves to the darkness of spirit.

"You, My child, Veronica, will be given the strength to continue with your mission. If We force you to rest, it is for reason. Give all to the will of the Father. Do not question at any time His methods. There are many who will ostracize you, My child. There are many who will condemn you. Accept this in the spirit of mortification, and you will save many souls. There is no need to defend yourself, so you will stop, My child, writing letters.

"You are quite disturbed, My child. No, We are not offended. The road to sanctity is learned by steps. It is only your human nature that makes you seek the plaudits of men. Learn a simple and humble lesson. Should you receive acknowledgement from man, the Father Who sees you in secret has already given you your reward. The reward in Heaven is far greater than any man could ever offer. You will remember this, My child, when you give in to your human instincts.

"I stress, I repeat the way given by the Father for you in the days ahead: prayer, atonement, and sacrifice. Much is needed. You must bend your knees to honor your God. Women must not expose their flesh. Paganism will not be tolerated by the Father, neither in your lay life nor in the House of My Son. It is an abomination for women to speak in the House of God! I hear a word . . . defilement of man: liberation! My child, what is this liberation women ask for? Satan has created the plan for their destruction. Take your Bible, take the Book of life and study it and learn! You have given off a wretched stench of the devil! Woman, you were created by the Father as a helper for your husband! Now you are in competition to be as your husband.

"All manners of vile creatures now run upon your earth. They are no longer human creations of the Father; they are animals. Fornication! Adultery! Filth! And you wonder, My children, why I cry and shed bitter tears, for I know what lies ahead for you if you continue in the manner in which you offend your God now. Destruction! Destruction from man and destruction upon you from the Father!

"Your country and the world has given itself to lust, pleasures of the flesh, worship of satan, abominations in the House of God. These abominations and these offenses, My children, are far worse than in the time of Noe! You will burn! The world will be cleansed by a baptism of fire.

"Wake up now, My children; prepare yourselves! Make restitution. Get down on your knees. Turn back from your path, for you are leading into the darkness the young! You are destroying the souls of the young. And as such, you will be condemned forever to hell!


"The example We see of many parents is poor. Mothers--where is the word 'mother' on your earth? So few true mothers remain. They compete with their daughters, My children. Vanity, lust, fornication, adultery--all in the home! All vile manners of fornication, tearing down the sanctity of the home. Parents, mothers, you are responsible as a parent for the souls of your children. If you permit them to expose their bodies to the public eye, you are guilty of a sin! You are guilty and shall receive your recompense.

"Discipline your children, you who will remain in the light. Discipline them, or you shall cry bitter tears of anguish. You will have to be an outcast. You will be laughed at and scorned. Yes, My Son was laughed at and scorned. Do not expect your cross to be any lighter. You will have to pick up your cross and follow My Son, the same road.

"You are living now in the time known in your world as the Antichrist against My Son. All who reject My Son as the Messiah cannot enter into the Kingdom! What fallacy is there being permitted in My Son's House! You are uniting unbelievers for your own destruction. My Son founded His House upon earth. You will not bring in unbelievers and change it! You will not convert souls by permissiveness. You will destroy! You feed the bodies and you destroy the souls.


"We shall rise up among you--My Son has a plan--the latter day saints, the saints of the last days. Our armies, My child, are building up to fight satan. Know that the eventual victory is with Us. With this knowledge, go forward with great hope and perseverance. Accept all of the scorn of the world, all the rejection of mankind; for, My child, My own will know Me.

"The voice of truth, the Message from Heaven, will go throughout the world, and then will come the end.

"The Father has deemed it necessary, My child, to increase the numbers of photographs miraculous. They will be of great consolation to many. They will be a means for the human eye to see. They will verify and make known the truth, for the faith has become so weak that man will not believe unless he sees. And this We are giving to you, My children. The Father sends you graces in abundance, graces for cure and graces for conversion. Gather them while there is time, for the time is growing short."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is extending Her Rosary. It's--oh, it's a beautiful Rosary. It's very large. The beads are white, the Hail Marys, and the Our Fathers are beautiful golden. Now Our Lady is holding the cross up right in front of Her, and She's making the sign of the cross, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Our Lady is holding Her hands out with the Rosary, like this. The Rosary is suspended in Her left hand, and Our Lady now is holding a crucifix. Now from Her hands--oh, there are tremendous lights. Oh, they're beautiful! They're rays. Oh, they're coming now across the grounds. Oh, they're so bright I can barely look at them. They're so beautiful! The rays are coming out of Our Lady's hands. They're coming across by the flagpole and out over our heads and out onto the street. Oh, they're just beautiful! And they're turning now all of the colors of the rainbow: blue, orange, yellow, green. Oh, they're just beautiful!

And now Our Lady is coming down, and the lights are beginning to . . . they're just like dispersing. And Our Lady is saying in a very, very soft voice:

Our Lady--"You will continue now, My child, with the prayers of atonement. Many are needed."


Veronica--We will say an Act of Contrition and three Hail Marys which will be applicable to all those who have passed on in the last 24 hours. [The prayers were recited.]

All who are able, please kneel because Jesus is going to bless the sacramentals.

Now Jesus has been standing as we were praying. He came down from the left side of the flagpole. And Jesus is just above Saint Michael's banner now. He's standing there; He's smiling. The light is very bright. It's so bright I can barely see Jesus' face. Now the light is shining on Jesus' hair. It looks very deep, sort of a pink glow. It makes His hair look sort of a reddish brown. But--oh, now Jesus is shifting His robe. And He's bending forward now. And Jesus is placing His hand like this in front of Him. Oh, and He's making now the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Jesus is bending over.

Jesus--"My child, you must work with great haste. Your lack of energy will be the force fighting you from satan. We will send you the much-needed arms to proceed with your mission. I bless you, My child."

Veronica--Now Jesus is walking over to the side of the flagpole, on the right side. And He's standing over the trees now. He's coming down a little closer. Oh, and Our Lady now is coming out. There's a very large cloud between the flagpole and the tree, and Our Lady now is--it's like She was riding on top of it. It's coming closer behind Jesus. Now Our Lady is coming out of it. It's just like a smoke screen, the cloud. And Our Lady is coming and She's standing by Jesus. Our Lady is smiling.

Oh, the beads--Our Lady is nodding to the beads. They are very, very similar. Oh, yes. Oh! Our Lady is very pleased with the beads. I didn't know if I was permitted to have them, since they're like Our Lady's. Oh, Our Lady likes them very much. Oh! Oh!

And now Jesus is bending; He's nodding. Now Jesus is coming down closer. He's down almost at the side of the Michael banner now. And He's touching it with His right hand. Jesus is placing His hand on the banner of Saint Michael. Oh, and now He's taking His hand and He's bending down. Oh, 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 floating up. She's going very high up by the flagpole. And now Jesus also is going backwards. He's going up. Oh, and He's crossing over--no, He's coming over on the left side. And Our Lady now is over on the left side, and She's coming down. She's standing just a little behind Jesus. Now Jesus is smiling, and He's now extending His hand out in front, 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 He's moving over and He's looking down. Now Jesus is placing His hand out, like this. Oh, and there are rays coming from His hand--oh, just like Our Lady's. They're very bright. Oh, they're coming down now over the grounds here. Oh, they're very bright. I don't want to touch them because they, they look very, very bright. Oh!

Jesus--"No, My child, you will not touch them with your hands."

Veronica--Oh! Now Jesus is moving over now. The light is dimming; I can look over now. And He's coming over again to the right side of the flagpole. Oh, now He's carrying now a cross. He's carrying a wooden cross in His right hand, and He's leaning over now and He's extending the cross over in His hand and He's blessing: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Now Jesus is placing the cross in His left hand, and He's putting His hand out again. Oh, there are the rays; oh, the rays are coming out of His hand. They're very, very bright. Oh, my goodness! Oh! Oh! They're a little frightening. Jesus says:

Jesus--"Do not be frightened, My child. They are great graces."

Veronica--Oh! Now--In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Jesus--"My child, you will make the Message of Heaven known to all. They must not take My Mother's words idly. Make great haste to make the message known to the world. The time is running out. There will be great trial upon mankind. The direction for your salvation, for your redemption, has been given countless times in the past and in your present. What happens now in your future depends upon mankind. The Father will chastise those He loves."

Veronica--In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.


Oh, my goodness! Now there is over the flagpole a--oh, it looks--it doesn't look good. There's a banner; there's a banner. It, it's squared off like this, and it has like a V-shape cut in the bottom. It's like this, with a V-shaped cut. It's all in purple, the banner. It has gold fringe on it, but it has a cross. The cross is gray. I don't know what it means right now, but there's a banner. It's purple, a very dark purple, almost a black, with a gray cross in the center of it. And the bottom of the banner is not squared off; it's cut in a V shape, like this. And there are golden tassels hanging on each side, and it seems to be suspended on a rod. Oh, my! It gave me a very--sense of foreboding. Oh!

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
