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

"I will send a sword upon the world. A sword upon the world! And from the ashes shall be a true renewal!"

February 1, 1975

Eve of the Presentation of Our Lord

Veronica--. . . flagpole. The light is coming from a very large cross. It's a very illuminated cross in white. No, along the borders of the cross there are different colors of orange and red. They're very powerful-looking rays of color. Now the cross seems to be floating in the air, like coming towards us, and it's becoming larger. It covers the whole sky.

Now I hear a voice. I can't see who it is, but the voice is saying:

"Observe, my child, the great sign of the Son of Man."

Veronica--Now over on the left, just a little to the right of the tree, I see . . . oh, it's Michael! I recognize him, but he's wearing a very long gown, a beautiful white gown. It's very loose about his waist. But he's bare-footed; he has no sandals upon his feet. And now Michael is pointing over to his left--that's on the right of us.

St. Michael--"Repeat after me:

"The sins of man, the greatest of sins coming from out of the heart of man, shall set upon the world a great crucible of suffering. Know now that you have as a majority rejected the words of warning from the Queen of Heaven. As such, there will be sent upon you a great Chastisement. Already many warnings have been given to awaken mankind that have gone by unheeded."


Veronica--Now Michael is pointing with his hand over beyond the huge cross. Now the cross is beginning to fade, and I see a large map. And Michael is pointing. It's Africa; I recognize the map.

St. Michael--"Observe the course of history, my child. This country will fall to the forces of evil and give itself into the reign of what you have chosen to call the Antichrist."

Veronica--Now Michael is going back high up into the sky. He's floating, he's not walking. It's like the air is carrying him right back into the clouds. His voice now is much softer than it was before.

St. Michael--"Await, my child, the Queen of Heaven."

Veronica--Oh, Our Lady now is coming down. Oh, Michael is behind Her, but also with him I see Theresa. Oh! Oh, Theresa and her sister. I recognize her sister--oh, Celine.

Now Our Lady is coming down. Oh, how beautiful Our Lady looks! Oh! Our Lady is dressed in the most beautiful white gown. Her cape is blue, and it has a border of gold about the outside. It's very beautiful. And Our Lady has on Her head a small crown, a circlet of gold, with little diamond-like stars upon the outside of the crown. Oh, it's just beautiful! Now Our Lady has a blue sash about Her waist. Oh, and on Her feet--Her feet look so beautiful. I can just see the top of Her toes here, and She has the most beautiful golden slippers, and a golden rose is on each slipper. Oh!

Our Lady's voice now--She has a beautiful voice. It's like--Our Lady's voice is like a whisper. It's soft, and yet it seems to vibrate.

Our Lady--"My child, you will continue to give the Message from Heaven. You must retire in more silent prayer. I have prepared you for the way ahead. It will be a road of great persecution.

"The forces of evil are gathered against My work, My child. However, you will know that this is the meter for the salvation of souls. Were it not so, I would tell you. The suffering of My children who are carrying their candles has great value for the repatriation of the souls.

"Much must remain hidden from you at this time, My child. You will read the photographs most carefully. I have counseled you into the past not to speculate upon the date. It will not be necessary to speculate, for I assure you, My child, when the word is to be made known, there will be no doubt. I ask you to continue to prepare yourselves for the days ahead.

"You must increase your prayers for your Vicar. He is now a prisoner among his own. The faces of evil are many about him. They parade themselves, My child, as angels of light.

"My child, you must follow My counsel or you will be subjected to much suffering.

"You must expect, My child, to receive great persecution. Graces are given in abundance, but they are for the asking. You cannot bestow graces upon a closed heart.

"I have asked My children to stand upon these grounds as a bastion of faith. Unless the prayers continue, My child, there will be great atrocities committed in your city: murders, fornication, abominations in the House of God, brother against brother, sister against sister, mother against children--so great will be the evil entrenched in the hearts of man!

"It would be best, My child, if you would confine yourself to your home with less time on your telephone. It can also be an instrument for satan.

"You have to accept the will of the Father, My child.


"You ask Me, My child, why My tears are flowing? Come with Me and look!"

Veronica--Oh, my goodness! Oh, I see . . . I, I never saw so many dead people!

Our Lady--"Man against man, nation against nation. No flesh shall be spared."

Veronica--Oh, I see a great, horrible war! I see--it looks like a mushroom, a tremendous explosion, and everything is gone! Oh!

Our Lady--"Satan, My child, shall have his hand upon the button."

Veronica--Our Lady is pointing over, and She's going--and She's pointing over; it's like we're looking over a large body of water. And now there's the land, and I see many people. They're dressed in uniforms. I recognize them, and on their hats is like a red star. They're, they're army uniforms. Our Lady--oh, I know--oh, my goodness, it is Russia!

Our Lady--"See, My child, there are not enough prayers to stop the evil. Unless you pray more now for the conversion of Russia, a great War will soon be upon your earth.

"Socializing, My child, will avail nothing to mankind, for the man who is not of God the Father, his word is not of truth. There is no honor without your God. Promises, promises, pact upon pact, with not a word of truth behind them!


"My child, hasten to spread the word! Much evil is planned against your glorious land. Hasten! Spread the word! You as a nation are being deluded. There are enemies all about you, waiting. They plan to move upon you from within. Pray a constant vigilance of prayer. You have not a moment to lose.

"My child, I hear your heart. You do not understand the ways of the Father. Man has set his own course, and he shall reap the harvest of his abominations.

"Do not be grieved, My child, at the sights you are seeing. It is mankind who set themselves onto this path. All who are of well spirit will have no need to fear. It is not that I come to bring fear to your heart. I come as a Mother, a Mother of great sorrow. The future has been made known to Me, and O My child, so many will die in the flame of the Ball of Redemption! Prepare, My children, prepare! Do not cast aside My voice! I come as your Mother. Prepare, for the Ball of Redemption nears.

"I shall not take you to watch again, My child, the Ball. The sight has already taxed your strength. That is why I promised, My child, the six days of suffering will not be for you.

"You will keep a constant vigilance, My child. Bar your door to all but your close friends and workers.

"Wear your sacramentals, My children. They are given to you for reason. There is not enough that you can guard your immortal soul with in those dark days that are facing you.

"I have asked in the past, My children, that you read the Book of life, the Bible. It will be a source of strength and knowledge to you. If you are knowledgeable, you will not fall into error. Error has entered upon My Son's House because My Son's representatives, the clergy, have given themselves to the world. They must return to a life of prayer and dedication of the spirit. Our sheep are starving.


"The world of the supernatural has been cast aside for a world of science. How foolish of mankind to set himself above his God and Creator! Man of science is ever seeking but never finding the truth. Pride, arrogance, atheism! What, My children, has been developed within your country to give you less a chastisement than that is planned by the Father? How many victim souls have set themselves for the repatriation of your country? My child, the numbers are in the few.

"I must tell you now that all who remain with My Son will carry the cross. However, know that the victory is with My Son, for satan and hell shall fall. The state of My Son's House is temporary. It is in the plan of the Father that the sheep shall be separated from the goats. All that is rotten shall fall. A House, a Church in darkness wears a band of death about it.

"Pure waters must nourish the flowers."

Veronica--Our Lady means the souls.

Our Lady--"In these great days of battle of the spirits, My child, many saints shall emerge.

"My own, My child, shall know Me.

"Many, My child, have rejected My message. Many have rejected the photographs. Why? The Father looks into their hearts. Many shall reject them, for if they were to be accepted, My child, they would have to change their ways. And many do not wish to change, so great do they love their sin.

"Sin, My child, has become a way of life in your country and in the world.

"The children are the victims of their elders. Parents, guard your children well, or your tears shall flow. As you sow, you shall reap!

"You will, My child, be given much assistance in the days ahead. Go forward on your mission with perseverance and great confidence. Accept the will of the Father. Give yourself completely in trust to Him.

"Many manifestations of the supernatural shall be given to My children: cures and conversion, cures of the spirit and cures of the body.

"The Spirit of truth has not been extinguished in your world. Seek and you shall be given the way. Believe and you will be given the way.

"The Faith has grown weak, My child, on your earth. I am now, My child, going throughout your earth. Many shall light their candles with Me. However, My child, in the final count only a few shall be saved.

"I ask you, My child, to retain your manner of dress. Soon all who are following Me by example shall be made known by their manner of dress. The worldly shall dress of the world, and those of the spirit shall hide themselves from the eyes of man.

"Satan rules your world now. He goes about as a ravenous wolf among you. Your free will now is your balance. The reward is great for all who stand with My Son in this conflict.

"You have but two final destinies: Heaven and hell. Know that satan will try to remove the reality of the existence of his kingdom, hell, from you. If he makes a farce of his existence among you, he will deceive you so that you will sin and remove yourselves from the Spirit of light. And when you remove yourself from the Spirit of light, you remove yourselves from eternal life in the Kingdom of your Father, the most high God in Heaven.


"There is a great means of restoration of My Son's House. It is a simple way, but it will bear fruit. Our clergy must return to a life of prayer. You shall not gather your sheep by going among them and lowering your standards.

"The foundation for My Son's House has always been firm. You shall not use your rank in My Son's House to whittle away at the walls! You are going like rodents burrowing into the foundation of My Son's House! I do not need to name you with names, My children. You who wear the Red Hats and the Purple Hats, you know who I speak to! When are you going to cast aside the darkness from your hearts? Restore My Son's House to its proper foundation, or else you will receive the sword! Many mitres are falling into hell!"

Veronica--Oh! Oh, my goodness! Our Lady is pointing over, and I see . . . I, oh, I see bishops! I know they're bishops. I don't know the rank, but I can tell from their hats they're bishops. There are two now, they're standing--and as I watch, everything is turning black. All the color is going from their mitres; and their robes that were golden and purple, they're now black! Black! Oh, and now as I watch, I see this hole opening wider. And now they're going and looking down and plunging into the hole.

Our Lady--"The abyss, My child."

Veronica--Our Lady said the abyss. Oh!

Our Lady--"You have reason to be upset, My child. It is not them alone that enter."

Veronica--And I am looking now over--Our Lady is pointing, and it's just like one by one, and two by two, and three by three--I see a whole row full of people following, and they're entering where these bishops were standing. And as they enter they also turn black in color, very dark--just like they're destroyed in darkness. Just like the very darkness is enveloping them and destroying their bodies!

Our Lady is pointing over.

Our Lady--"Not their bodies, their human bodies, My child, their eternal souls. Damned forever to the abyss! Many mitres are now leading their sheep into the abyss."



Our Lady--"Pray, My child, pray much, for the greatest attacks of satan now are upon your hierarchy. Misdirection, delusion, misleading! O My child, I am truly the Mother of great sorrow!"

Veronica--Now it's growing much brighter. It's like the daylight is coming. The darkness was so great. Oh, it was a darkness when I was standing there.

Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"Yes. Explain, My child, so that man will know how deep the darkness is in your world."

Veronica--It was, walking into the darkness, it was like walking into death itself, but a black death--a death without any light, a stifling death, a smothering death; and battling your way back, Our Lady says, leads with confusion, disillusionment, and no light.

Our Lady--"My child, My children, you will remain with My Son in the Eucharist. He is with you--His Body, His Blood--He is with you in all the tabernacles of the world."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is placing Her hands in front of Her, like this.

Our Lady--"I implore you, My children, do not leave My Son to be a prisoner in His House! He is lonely! Won't you come and solace Him?

"Do not judge My Son's House by the ways of man! The foundation is there, even when the walls are crumbling. Patiently pray and wait, and wait for the hand of My Son to restore your world.

"I cannot in truth promise you peace at this time, for there will be no peace. It is a point now of almost, My child, no return. The miracle you seek now must be a complete reversal in the ways of mankind. It is the only factor that will hold back the Ball of Redemption upon you.

"Pray, My children, a constant vigilance of prayer. You will be solaced during your moments of trial, for the Father sends upon you the Spirit. It will appear before your very eyes, and you shall share in the glories of Heaven, for nothing is impossible to the Father.

"No evil shall ever be triumphant. The Father shall turn all evil to good.

"Remember, My child, as I directed you before, when you grow weary, you will quietly retire and speak to Us with your heart. No practiced words will be necessary. You may talk to Us with your heart."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is raising Her Rosary up. She has the most beautiful Rosary. It's white, and it has the golden Our Fathers. And Our Lady now is taking the crucifix, like this, and holding it out in front of Her and making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

And now Our Lady is turning over to Her right. And She's smiling now, and placing Her crucifix out, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Oh, now Our Lady is going over . . . oh! Oh, She's coming forward . . . oh, and looking down. Now She's placing Her hand out, like this, with the crucifix: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now behind Our Lady, there is a great light. And--oh! Oh, I can see Theresa and the three nuns behind her. I recognize her sister on the right. And now over on the left side of the nuns is Michael, and Gabriel, and Raphael. And there are many others behind them.


The sky is beginning to open, and I see a great many people there. Oh, I recognize some! I see Saint Theresa, oh, leaning over, and there's Saint Catherine. Oh, my! And Pope John!

Pope John--"Oh! Ho, ho! Oh, no, I am not any thinner yet!"

Veronica--Oh! And then, over--he's pointing over now, Pope John. He's got a lot of rings on his fingers! And he's pointing over, and he's pointing--it's a very large book. And he's saying:

Pope John--"The Bull! The Bull!"

Veronica--Oh, he means to find out about a Bull? Oh, a book? A Bull?

Pope John--"Rules and Regulations--"

Veronica--Oh, Pope John says:

Pope John--"Rules and regulations must be followed. This modern world has given itself to satan. Rules and regulations must be followed."

Veronica--Now he's smiling. He's very--well, he's always smiling. He's a very happy man. Oh!


And now pointing over, I see another, I see another man. He's--oh!

"Pope Pius XII," he said. Oh! And he now is pointing over to the book, also.

Pope Pius XII--"Rules and regulations, my child, they must be followed. You will not change the rules to suit the man. The rules have already been written down. There is no reason to have them rewritten. It is satan who is rewriting the rule. Awaken from your stupor! Take the cobwebs from your minds! You are blinded to the truth. A sad state exists in the House of God. Awaken from your slumber!"

Veronica--He looks like he's a small man. He's thin and has a close shaven head. It looks like his hair is quite thin, and he's wearing one of those beanies--a yarmulke, I guess you'd call it, on his head. And now he's smiling, and he's waving his head yes, like this.

Oh, and he's also dressed very beautifully, all in white. And I can see his white slippers just beautifully, like white satin. Oh, it's just beautiful.

And now, looking over I can see Pope John. Oh, and he also is dressed in white and gold and has white slippers on, too. He's very well covered--like a cape over his shoulders, and oh, I can see his garments very, very well. Oh, they're beautiful.

And now Pope John is bending down.

Pope John--"Would you, my child, recognize me if I removed these garments? No, you would not. This is fair example to the clergy of the world. You will not be recognized by the Father if you remove your garments, either."

Veronica--And now he's pointing up. He's got a ring on this finger, and he's pointing up. And I see a lot of men and women, but they're all dressed--I know they're brothers and priests and nuns, and they all have on long habits.

Now he's coming over, Pope John is coming over. He says:

Pope John--"What is this change that has taken place upon your earth? It is the work of satan! Cover your bodies, or they shall burn!"

Veronica--Oh, now Theresa is coming over, too, by Pope John, and she's standing there. And Our Lady now is coming over, too, and She's standing--they're all standing together. And Our Lady is saying:

Our Lady--"How many more earth-years will I be permitted to be among you, My children, with My voice crying out to make ready, for the time of My Son is approaching!

"I have set upon the world many seers to unify My little armies throughout the world. The Father has placed Me on this mission of being a Mediatrix between God and man.

"I shall be with you through the days ahead, and We reserve for all who remain faithful and true, a crown, a crown eternal."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is motioning, and Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"Now, My child, you will await the arrival of My Son."


Veronica--Oh, Jesus has on a--I'm trying to describe it. I just-- oh, really, it's a beautiful--there's a tremendous white light about Jesus, and He has on a different cloak. It's a different kind of red; it's a dark, almost a maroon color. And now I can see--I see Jesus' face much clearer, because the light is all on the outside, and I can see He's very young looking. Oh!

And now--oh, now Jesus is shifting His arms. He's carrying something in His hand. Oh, it's a cross. It's a large wooden cross that He had under His cape, and He's holding it forward. And He's holding His cross forward.


Jesus--"Listen carefully, My child, and repeat after Me. This message is for the clergy.

"You must not change My House to cater to the basic sinful nature of mankind. Man must change for the good. Man must make his change to please his God.

"The representatives of My House will not change to please mankind. Discipline must be returned to My House. You who have set yourselves in disobedience to Our Vicar will answer for your discretion to the Father. You have been given the time to make amends and atonement for your many sins against your rule. You will not bargain My House for worldly gain! The cost is too great, for you are counting this gain in the loss of My sheep. Restore My House, or you shall fall completely! And from the ashes shall rise the Kingdom.

"You are receiving one of My final warnings! You are asking for the Chastisement! My Mother has passed among you and has begged for the time, an extension of time, so that you will make this atonement. However, your time is growing short. Prayer, penance, and sacrifice, or you will wash your robes in your blood!"


Jesus--"All who have closed their hearts to My Mother's message will be brought down to their knees in shock! No man shall be tolerated by the Father when he gains prestige at the cost of the loss of one soul."

Veronica--Oh, now Jesus is going back, and He's turning now to Michael. Michael is over on Jesus' right, on our left, and Our Lady is standing there. Our Lady is looking at Jesus. Our Lady doesn't look very happy. She looks very upset.

Now Jesus is turning back. He has nodded to the Blessed Mother, but He's turning back.

Jesus--"Repeat after Me, My child:

"A House in darkness will wear a band of death about it. All that is rotten will fall, and from the ashes shall rise the Kingdom.

"Father against son, mother against daughter: discord in the family. You shall be sifted, the kernels from the chaff. I will set among you a sword!"

Veronica--Now Jesus is placing His hand in front of Him, like this. His hands are extended out, 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 going over--He's passing over by the tree and He's looking down, placing His hand out: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Jesus is going over, and Our Lady now is following Him. She's like floating. She doesn't walk; it's just like She's carried, like on the wind. She just floats right next to Jesus. And Jesus is turning around.

Jesus--"Time, My child, you ask the time? Remember you are ageless in the Kingdom, and there is no time."

Veronica--Oh! Now Jesus is turning back, and He is placing His hand out: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now He's floating up. He hasn't turned around. Jesus is going over, and now Michael is coming down forward, and he's got this large sword. It's very long, and he's placing the point downward. And he said:


St. Michael--"I will send a sword upon the world. A sword upon the world! And from the ashes shall be a true renewal!"

Veronica--Oh, now Jesus is now placing His hand out, and Our Lady is extending Her Rosary: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Our Lady is coming forward. He's nodding; Jesus is nodding His head. And Our Lady is coming forward.

Our Lady--"You will stand, My children, in example. You will remain true to your Faith, for it is not mankind that you are fighting but the spirits of evil, the forces of darkness that cover your world. Know that the victory will be with you and My Son, and one day We will all rejoice in the Kingdom, knowing that We have returned from a mission that was well done."

Veronica--Now Our Lady is placing Her hand out. Oh, and Jesus is smiling. She's placing Her hands out, like this. And oh, the rays! Oh, they're so bright, I can't look at them. Oh, they're beautiful, but they're so bright! Oh, my! Oh, I can feel them. I have never felt the rays before. I could see them, but I couldn't feel them. Oh, my! Oh! Oh, Our Lady has Her hands out now, and--I don't know what they are, but they're, they're so strong! They feel like they could lift you right off your feet.

Our Lady thinks that's quite funny. But oh, my goodness! They're so burning. Oh, now they're going, and it's getting very, very dim. And Our Lady now--they seem to just be fading away. Oh! Oh! Oh! And now, Our Lady now--

Our Lady--"My child, you will continue with your prayers of atonement. What you have seen is a small measure of what is in store for all who follow My Son."

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