[A large, jeering crowd of protesters was gathered around the grounds this evening, and was creating a great disturbance. The shouting and noise continued throughout the vigil.]
Our Lady--"My child, continue with calm of spirit. You have been allowed to witness the re-crucifixion of My Son. Know now that I, too, was set upon, but did not fear this overwhelming majority.
". . . raining teardrops from Heaven, My child. The forces of evil have accelerated. Pray for all men of sin. It is with great pity that you must open your hearts to them. Many will die in the great flame of the Ball of Redemption. Satan has blinded many to the truth, My child. Continue with your prayers of atonement."
Veronica--Our Lady is standing in the center.
Our Lady--"Peace, My child--have peace, My child, in your heart. You have been allowed to carry the cross. It is a measure, a small measure of the atonement needed to hold back the Warning and the Chastisement.
"If you were not successful in gathering the souls with My Message from Heaven, this confrontation would not have taken place. Be assured the count is great in Heaven at this time, but many will die in the great flame of the Ball of Redemption.
"Continue, My child, the prayers with great ease. None will perish, I assure you. There is nothing to fear save fear; face it, My child, and it will disappear.
"The crowds, My child, were far greater when they placed My Son upon the tree. You well understand, My child, how I felt at that time. Experience, My child, will make us companionable spirits. The Father has not allowed this for reason that human beings in their human nature would be able to understand, My child. In due time you will understand the reason.
"If your country and the peoples of your country and the world had not gone into darkness they would be joining you in prayer. But so deep is the darkness of the spirit in your country and the world! It truly rains teardrops from Heaven, My child.
"Continue with your prayers of atonement. They have great power to balance the scales, which lean heavily to the left. When the peak of iniquity has been reached, My child, the great Chastisement will fall upon mankind. Shout My message to the rooftops, My child. The time is growing short. The great Warning is approaching.
RIOTS IN STREETS
"This situation would not have occurred if satan had not entered upon the medias of your life. The corruption within your homes, the corruption within your schools, the laxity of parents in guarding the lives, the souls of their children--all this has come about because of the sins of mankind. Riots in your streets will become commonplace, My children, when the enemies of God bring about your complete fall. Only prayer, sacrifice, and atonement can save you, My children.
"I have wandered throughout the world bringing this Message from Heaven to mankind. The Father has counted and found you lacking.
"Know that a great Warning will be sent upon mankind. All who remain in the light of grace will have no fear. They will pass through this great Warning without suffering. I cannot promise you that none will die in this great Warning, My child, for there will be death. Prepare now, for this is just a small measure, My children, of what you will have soon.
RED FLAG OVER CONVENTS AND CHURCHES
"This scene, this diabolical quandary, My child, is spreading throughout your world. Blood shall flow in the streets of all nations. The red flag shall rise over many convents and the houses of My Son. All that is rotten will fall! A House in darkness wears a band of death about it. A Church in darkness, My child, wears a band of death about it. Pray for your clergy, for many mitres will fall into hell.
"Yes, My child, many mitres will fall into hell because too few pray for them. Their graces must also be merited, My child. Man finds his destiny with his own free will.
"You ask for a miracle, My child? My Son performed many miracles in His lifetime upon earth. Many turned from Him, many denied Him in the face of these miracles.
"The Father, the Eternal Father, My child, is in full control of the world. Satan rages throughout your world but for a short duration.
"Guide My sheep, My clergy; guide them in the time left to you. Return them to the fold; they are straying.
NO THIRD REPRIEVE
"The merciful heart of the Eternal Father has given you two reprieves in the past, My children. The third reprieve shall not be given. Know, My child, that the Warning will come upon you soon.
"Yes, My child, there is nothing to fear. Many have been misdirected and misled. They are following like sheep to the slaughter. We will remove the evil one from among you soon. He has done his work well for satan, My child. Know that no evil is ever triumphant. The Father, the Eternal Father, turns all evil to good. He will use your discomfort, the Eternal Father, and guide it into channels for the salvation of souls. Your sufferings are not wasted, My children. Bear with Us for the salvation of souls.
"Continue now with your prayers of atonement. Persevere, for the hours of prayer shall release many from purgatory."
Veronica--Our Lady is coming forward. She's coming across the fence. Oh, Our Lady looks beautiful! She has about Her a blue cape, and the coloring of the cape is catching in the light, making the whole sky around Her a most beautiful deep blue.
Our Lady is standing with both of Her hands out. Her palms are showing, and in each hand She is holding a rose, a most beautiful red rose. Now Our Lady is taking the rose in Her right hand and throwing it forward.
Our Lady--"Graces, My child and My children, graces in abundance for the asking: graces for cures and conversion.
WATERS TO ERUPT SUDDENLY
"Yes, My child, the waters will erupt suddenly. However, you must be cautious that they do not try to still the flow by capping the waters.
"I repeat, My child, there would not be opposition if you were not succeeding in bringing the sheep back to Us. Continue upon your mission with confidence and perseverance, My child. The means to accomplish this shall be sent to you.
"Satan knows that his time grows short. He will give you great battle, My child. Bar your doors to all but your immediate family and friends. Retire into a life of more prayer, My child. You will find it restful to your body.
"Satan never sleeps, My child. He has many agents now upon the grounds, My child. I have often cautioned you to remember the message from My Son: Beware of an evil force that surrounds a shrine of purity. They will try to stop you with all cunning and deception, My child, so heed the warning of the archangels. They wish to protect you. Pray for the light. Call upon your angel guardians often, My child. They have been given to you for reason.
"Pray for those who calumniate you, My child, for even they can be returned to the light.
"The children are the true victims of their elders. The example given to them is poor. Many children shall be removed from the world, My child. It will be necessary for the salvation of their souls. It will be a great plague.
"Remember, My child, they turned away and did not listen to the message of the prophets of old. Nineveh fell, Sodom and Gomorrha, and so will your country and your city. I place upon you the word 'if,' My child. This 'if' can only be used for a short time, for the time allotted to mankind to make redemption to the Father is short.
PLAGUE IN ROME AND ENGLAND
"Have great pity, My children, My child, for the souls that will be lost. In the holy city of Rome and in the country on the sea there will be a plague. In the country on the waters of England there will be a plague.
"The Third World War shall start soon, My child, and claim many lives. Many countries shall disappear from the surface of your earth. Wars are a punishment for man's sins, My child.
"The Father chastises those He loves. Pray, pray much. Make many sacrifices, and your tears shall be not one of sorrow but of comfort, knowing that your family and your children have been saved. Many parents shall shed tears of bitter misery, but too late, too late, My children.
"Pray for the clergy in your parish, My child. The Father has set now--"
Veronica--Oh, my goodness! [Veronica is shown a vision concerning the clergy in her parish.]
Our Lady--"Yes, My child, now that you know, you will pray for them. Blindness of the spirit, darkness of the soul, is death, My child.
"The photographs given to you have been given for reason. Study them carefully, and you will find the present and the future within them.
"You cannot place this message, My child, upon your tape. [Veronica receives a secret message from Our Lady.]
"You will receive a complete fact in your next photograph, My child. This will be the proof that you want. Continue now, My child, with the prayers of atonement. They are sorely needed now."
Veronica--Padre Pio is present with us now. He is speaking in a tongue I don't understand. I know it must be Italian. I don't understand. Now I hear the words being repeated:
Padre Pio--"My spiritual children, you must unite in a common cause.
"Your world shall be chastised soon. Many shall die in the great flame of the Ball of Redemption. You have been given an extension of time to gather the souls, my children. Do not expect to follow my road and the road of the Savior without suffering. It is truly the way of the cross.
"Use more time in daily prayer. Not enough pray, my children.
"Place more attention upon the Holy Sacrifice. It is being celebrated in a manner that is not approved of by the Eternal Father. Take the time to honor your God with your heart. My brothers and sisters, the Holy Sacrifice cannot be done in thirty minutes, or even in sixty minutes, properly. There is no time in Heaven, and you shall not place a time upon the Holy Sacrifice on your earth."
Veronica--Oh, he's, he's also--the good Father, Padre, has injuries on his hands, too. He's holding them up now, but he's smiling.
Oh, I can see him so clearly. He's much clearer; even the light isn't so bright that I can't see his face. He has grayish, dark hair with gray, mostly gray, and a nice beard. And he has a very sweet smile. Oh!
Padre Pio--"Receive your Savior often, My child, and you will be comforted."
Veronica--And now he's placing his hand out, and he's making the sign of the cross.
"Thank you, Reverend Father, Padre."
Now the sky is closing up. I can't see him anymore. And it's very cloudy. But Our Lady now is coming down over by the right side of the sky, near the tree.
WAY OF THE CROSS
Our Lady--"You see, My child, all suffering shall be used for the salvation of souls. None enter into the Kingdom except by the way of the cross. The road to Heaven is filled with thorns, but at the end of the road, My child, you will receive a very large bouquet of roses."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is extending Her Rosary, the very large white Rosary with the golden Our Father, and making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Our Lady--"Continue, My child, with your prayers."
Veronica--Look at that!
Oh, Jesus is placing His hands out in front of Him, and He's pointing now to His heart on His chest.
Jesus--"My child, now you well understand what We have been observing throughout your world--man's inhumanity to his brother.
"I have asked you to come here. My Mother has come to you as a Mediatrix between God and man. She has spared no effort to reach you with the Message from the Eternal Father.
"Know that the graces are counted for the coming Warning and the great Chastisement. Lay man and clergy shall stand before the Father in judgment.
"Know, My child, that you have gained many graces with your sacrifices. And My children, you are children of the light; therefore, you have nothing in common with the darkness. The forces of evil surround the sacred grounds, and satan does battle with Our children.
"You will repair to your home, My child, and cooperate with your director.
"The prayers that will not be given to these souls--tears shall flow from their hearts, for the time is not long in coming for the great Warning. After that, My child, I can assure you they will come also upon their knees.
"Amen, amen, I say to you, no evil is ever triumphant. Pray for them, My child. Hold no malice in your heart, for if you know their future, you would surely cry for them. Continue until you leave, My child, these grounds for the present.
"Know that no one shall escape the flame of the Ball of Redemption.
"You will continue upon your mission with perseverance, My child, and confidence. Satan has a loud mouth, but he has a shallow future."
Veronica--Now Jesus is raising His hand above His head--oh! Oh! Oh, He's blessing us with the sign of the cross.
Jesus--"No, My child, a miracle shall not be given to this generation at this time. You understand the Father has a plan.
"The message given to you in secret, My child, must not be revealed at this time."
Veronica--And now Jesus is raising His hand above His head: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
