Veronica--The sky is becoming brighter. It's almost a fiery glow covering the whole sky. Our Lady now is coming out from behind a very large dark cloud. The cloud is dispersing, it's disappearing like smoke.
Our Lady is standing with Her hands out in front of Her. Everything looks very dark and grim.
Our Lady--"My child, no color could portray the condition of your earth and it's peoples. A great darkness of spirit has settled upon earth.
"There will be much revolution among Our children, the nations of the world.
"The evil is accelerating. It will be father against son, brother against brother, and sister against sister. There will be much disunity in the homes.
"The forces of evil travel with the sickle and the hammer. Unless a country is given to servitude of its God by prayer, penance, and atonement, it cannot withstand the forces of evil!
GRACES CONDITIONAL, MUST BE MERITED
"In the past, My children, I had promised to safeguard many lands. I had placed My mantle of protection over many foreign lands. However, all graces must be merited, and are conditional. Therefore, unless there are many prayers and acts of atonement, the country of Portugal will sadly find blood running in the streets. Corruption of government and godliness will make way for lawlessness and slaughter of the innocents. The light will grow dim and darkness will settle upon the land.
"Pray, My children, a constant vigilance of prayer. I ask you in your country, the Americas, to pray, for you shall follow the same path as Portugal. The forces of evil are gathering within the United States. Your leaders are giving themselves to corruption, too proud and arrogant to be simple of heart and get down on their knees to beg guidance from the Eternal Father in Heaven.
"By their fruits will they be known. My children, you will recognize the faces of evil and the forces of evil about you! It is a sad fact that those who are leaders are setting example of depravity, debasement. They cover themselves with the spirit of darkness. You will pray much for your leaders. All that is rotten will fall.
"My child, We are much saddened by the example in your government by your leaders. It would be best if the father of the household in Washington would take to task his wife and chastise her by the rule of godliness to cleanse her mouth, for it is not what goes in that corrupts the soul--the soul of others--but what comes out of a foul mouth.*
*First Lady Betty Ford, in an interview in 1975 on "60 Minutes," the popular CBS nationwide TV program, asserted that she would not be "surprised" if her daughter Susan had a premarital affair, as this was perfectly normal for young girls and, among other things, expressed her pleasure with the infamous 1973 Supreme Court abortion decision, calling it "the best thing in the world, a great decision."
"You must shout the Message from Heaven from the rooftops. There is no time to be concerned of worldly opinion. Each man has to save his soul. Those who are of age of reasoning have the responsibility to spread the word of God throughout the world.
"Parents must protect their children from the forces of evil that are set upon the children when they leave their household. You must, as parents, give your children a firm foundation of faith, discipline, and the knowledge of the value of prayer.
"We sadly look into the homes, My children, and find much lacking. The example is poor, all because there are too few who pray.
"Yes, My children, I have warned you through the past years of these coming times of trial. How many have listened and prepared for these times? Too few, My children, too few! Only a few will be saved in the final count.
"The specter of war is spreading throughout the earth.
"Man of science is ever searching but never finding the truth. For he searches through the darkness not looking for the light, My children."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is coming forward. She's extending Her hands out, and in them She has a very large Rosary, a beautiful white Rosary. The Our Fathers are golden--a huge golden bead for the Our Fathers and the Hail Marys are a white. But no, they're not exactly a white bead, because as Our Lady is moving about, they're catching the light and sending off brilliant colors of the rainbow.
Our Lady now is raising Her Rosary. It has the beautiful golden crucifix, and Our Lady is making the sign of the cross:
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Our Lady--"My child, you will recognize the manner in which satan and his agents work to try to destroy souls. They also will use persons, places, and things to work their destructive evil upon mankind.
"I repeat Myself, as in the past, My children. The demons have a form, but they do not use this form unless the Eternal Father gives you the knowledge and insight into the supernatural to observe them in action. They will use the body of a human being, one who has fallen out of grace and the light. Any man, woman, or child is susceptible to this possession.
"The knowledge of the supernatural must be given to the children. Pastors in My Son's houses, are you bringing this knowledge to the children? Have you chosen to scatter the sheep? Whatever will become of them? You must exercise discipline and good, firm example for the flock.
ERRORS, ARROGANCE, SLOTH
"Stand up, pastors in the houses of My Son, and give firm discipline by example and words chosen from the Book of love and life, the Bible. Remember all that can save a soul must be given to mankind. Good words kept in a closed mouth is like placing meat on a dead man's grave. What good is it to keep this knowledge to yourself, for would it not be, My children, selfishness not to share the way with the sheep? Awaken from your slumber, pastors! There is not much time left. You will have to account to My Son for your errors and for your arrogance and for your sloth. Awaken, pastors in My Son's houses! You are misleading the sheep.
"O woe, O woe! The Red Hats have fallen and the Purple Hats are being misled. The Red Hats have fallen and the Purple Hats are being misled. O woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth!"
Veronica--Now Our Lady is rising high, high up into the sky. The light is very brilliant. I can't see Our Lady's face now. She has on a beautiful white garment, and the cape is also a beautiful white. It's trimmed in gold edging all about the outside. Our Lady has on beautiful sandals. On each toe of the sandal I can see a golden rose, a small golden rosebud. Our Lady looks very dainty in Her garments and the beautiful shoes--sandals.
Now Our Lady is going over to our right side. She's standing just above the tree. Now She's bending down. Our Lady--Her voice is almost like a whisper. It seems to become entwined, intermingled with the rustle of the leaves.
Our Lady--"My child, work with great haste to give My message to the world. The time is growing short. Satan has set upon you an attack, My child. No man of science will recognize this illness. He seeks to slow you, My child. Recognize, but keep going. You will be given the stamina and the fortitude to proceed. Rest will cure all, My child. I admonish you now to not consider at this time entering a hospital.
"The forces of evil, My child, are gathering."
Veronica--Our Lady is pointing up to the sky, and there is a horse now. It's galloping; it's going very fast across the sky. It's a very sinister-looking horse. It's red in color, and there's a figure sitting upon it. Oh, my goodness! It's turned this way, and it has the face of a skull! It's no face; it's a bare skull, covered by a cloth, a red cloth that hangs down the side of the horse. It's a terrible-looking sight.
Now above the horse, as it's running now--it's galloping to the left--there's a word coming out now. I can read it. "WAR": W-A-R.
Now running, also, I see what looks like--oh, looks like a bunch of rats. It looks like rats going across the sky, and above it now I see the word "PESTILENCE." Pestilence! Pestilence will follow upon the war.
Now it's growing very dark, except over by the trees. Our Lady is standing above the tree.
Our Lady--"My child, do not be affrighted by what you have seen. We cannot avoid giving you these facts for mankind, but remember the Eternal Father in His mercy has a balance. All is conditional, but this balance, My child, has not been righted. Therefore, what you see is at the time unavoidable.
"The Warning, My child, will come soon, and if mankind does not heed this sign from the Eternal Father, there will follow fast on it the Chastisement by the Ball of Redemption.
"We hear voices crying to Heaven, 'Where is this that you speak of--where is this Ball of Redemption, this ball of fire, this baptism of fire?' My child, you have seen it often. It is out in your universe, waiting to approach earth in the time of the Eternal Father. But it is there!
"The Eternal Father has chosen to blind many to this fact because they have hardened their hearts to Him. Many tears shall be shed, but too late, for they have given themselves to the pleasures of the world: materialism and humanism and modernism, which is not of the Eternal Father.
SATAN SET NEED FOR CHANGE
"The way has been stated in writing, by example, and in action by your prophets and those who have set the foundation with My Son for His House. Therefore, it is satan who has set upon you the need for change, change, change, My children. And by his fruits do you know him.
"Example and a firm foundation is tested and found true--true by Tradition and true by Faith, My children. There is no need to experiment and make change, for you then will find satan guiding you deep into darkness. A House, a Church in darkness wears a band of death about it."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is going up, up high into the sky. Oh, it's so beautiful! The light is so bright. Oh! Now above Our Lady's head there's a circlet of stars forming. It's like diamonds all suspended above Our Lady's head, a beautiful circlet of diamonds.
Oh, now on the right side of Our Lady, I can see two children coming down from the sky now. Oh, I recognize them already. It is Jacinta and Francisco. Oh!
Now Our Lady is going over, She's placing Her right arm about Francisco's shoulders, and now Our Lady is speaking in a very soft voice:
Our Lady--"My children, as in the past, We have given a message of warning from Heaven to little seers and big seers."
Veronica--Our Lady is smiling.
Our Lady--"But, just as in the past, many have chosen to cast this warning aside. It is a human failing that many will only rely on experience to teach them. But much of this experience will bring great heartache to mankind.
"You must remember the warning, the message given to you by the children, Jacinta and Francisco. You will find that My words are the same then and now. I bring you, as a Mediatrix between God and man, a warning from Heaven that unless you mend your ways, do penance, and make atonement for your sins against nature and against the laws of your God, you will be destroyed!
"War is a punishment for man's sins!
"The good will suffer much, but they will go through this crucible of suffering with hope and great faith, knowing that by their perseverance in the time of trial, they will win their crowns in Heaven.
"My Son looks upon a generation that has given itself to pleasures of the flesh. Debasement, sensuality, and sexuality are rampant in the hearts of many. You will know that as the morality of a country goes, so goes the country onto the road to damnation.
"As in the houses of My children, so the leaders must be of good spirit in the houses of My Son, the churches of the world. The leadership is examined by the Eternal Father and found lacking.
"I repeat Myself: Pastors, awaken from your slumber! You must not offend your God any longer, for He is already too much offended!
"Pastors and mitres will also fall into hell. A human soul is but a human soul, and will pass into judgment. No soul shall cross the veil without facing this judgment by the Eternal Father.
"Do not succumb, My pastors, to the fallacy that all will be forgiven, for that is asking too much at this time. When a man sins, it is a sorrow to the merciful heart of the Eternal Father, but when he leads another into sin, it is an abomination in the eyes of the Eternal Father! Therefore, pastors, clothe yourself in good works, modesty, chastity, and piety. Holiness must be returned to the churches of the world.
"My Immaculate Heart is extended to the children of God in the world. Light your candles, My children, with Me and search through the darkness. Rescue your brothers and sisters. You must be now disciples for the Eternal Father. You will pray much for your pastors and your Vicar, Pope Paul in Rome. He is carrying a heavy cross, and being human, he needs many prayers."
Veronica--Our Lady now is extending Her hand out with the golden crucifix.
Our Lady--"I bless you all now, My children: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. I bless you with the shield of My Immaculate Conception: In the name of the Father, and of the Holy Ghost, and the Son--My Son, Whose heart bleeds for the condition of the souls of mankind. Save yourselves, My children, in the Sacred Heart of My Son."
Veronica--Now the sky is growing very dark. It's as though the whole sky is turning black, but tinged in a red coloring around the edges.
Now Our Lady is coming forward, and She's bending over.
NOT ONE WORLD AND ONE RELIGION
Our Lady--"My child, make it known to the world that man--children of God, led astray, you must not compromise your Faith! There shall not be one world and one religion at this time, for no man shall now gather the flock. Not one man shall gather the flock together. This will be done by My Son when He returns in the final stages of Armageddon.
"You must remember--do not be deceived, My children, by those who claim to be the Christ, for they will say, 'Come out to the field, for he is there. Come out to the barn! Come into the centers!' But no, My children, My Son shall come as He ascended. He will come down from the sky, shouting with a call of triumph to all. He will come down with the legions from Heaven of angels and all of the souls who have bathed themselves in His Blood and now wear the garments of light and life.
"Wait and watch, My children; pray much, for the Book of life is unfolding; the pages are turning. You are truly in the days of the Apocalypse. Read the Revelations, My children, and know what lies ahead. As you were told in the past, much will be opened to you, for the days of the Armageddon are here. Read the Revelations, your Apocalypse, My children. Saint John was given the knowledge to reveal to you the days in which you are living. Recognize the signs of your time."
Veronica--In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Our Lady--"You will sit now, My child, and reserve your strength.
"Life, My child, is but a pilgrimage for all, a vale of tears. You cannot have happiness, sublime happiness upon your earth, for then you will not be following the way of the cross. Life is but a vale of tears, but with these tears you will wash your soul.
"Persevere, My children, in the days ahead. The attacks from satan will be great, but recognize them and pray him out with a constant vigilance of prayer.
REMOVE TVs FROM HOMES
"I ask that a task force be set upon the world to eliminate the products of the forces of evil that seek to debase, destroy the souls of your children. Remove from your homes the corrupters of souls: the pornography, the infernal box--your television--and the destructor of souls, modesty and purity--the nakedness of the body.
"Parents, you shall be judged for the destruction, by permissiveness, of your children's souls. Clothe them in goodness, holiness, and piety, and make modesty a way of life for the young.
"We have asked many to give example of modesty. The world will laugh and scorn and make fun of them, for they must bring forward this example by even exaggeration, My child. That is why I have asked to lower the dress of the woman to her ankles. It is only by example that many learn.
"The sacredness of marriage and the married life of man and woman must not be destroyed by debased sensuality. It is a private consummation between man and woman and the family. It is not an object of derisive laughter and scornful jokes, My children.
"Your actions are observed by the Eternal Father Who looks into your heart. Pure thoughts, pure mind, pure spirit--what goes into the heart will come out. The eyes are the mirror of the soul; therefore, you must cast your eyes on objects of godly nature, not soul corrupters. Remove these from your home, or one day you will weep bitter tears for your children, but too late, too late!
"Your schools, your homes, your government, your medias of communication and entertainment are debased, and going farther into darkness--all for the love of money and power. What does it gain a man if he wins the whole world and the treasures of the world, for he will leave them behind when he leaves his body, and his eternal spirit must stand before the Father and be judged: Heaven, hell, or purgatory. You laugh; many laugh at the knowledge given to you of the existence of the supernatural--Heaven, hell, and purgatory. But those who laugh shall cry, but too late, too late, My children.
"It is better to remove your children from among these corrupters if necessary. Teach your children in the home. By example you may save or destroy.
ONLY PRIESTS TO GIVE HOST
"Pastors, no hands other than those consecrated by . . . . Legally ordained priests shall give the Host to others. Better that you spend more time consummating your role as the representative of Christ than joining the world.
"The extraordinary ministers have become a farce! Women? Children? Whatever shall become of you? The rules of discipline in the houses of My Son have already been given to you. Only legally ordained representatives of My Son--they receive the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit deems that they shall bring the Host to the man and the woman recipient and the children. Only in dire need of death shall a man--I say a man, not a woman or a child--shall a man be given the power through the legally ordained priest to bring in urgency and haste the Host to the dying.
"This debasement to My Son's Body shall not go unpunished.
Awaken! You are blind to the truth, My pastors. Are you to follow the call of the siren, the serpent, or are you going to listen to the words of truth and light? You are following like sheep to the slaughter. Come out of your darkness of spirit!
"Through the merciful heart of the Eternal Father you are being warned. Search your heart; allow the light to come in, for the light is dim in the hearts of many."
Veronica--Now it's growing quite dark, and Our Lady is going back into the sky. She's going high up into the sky.
Our Lady--"No, My child, I am not leaving. I will be with you during your prayers of atonement. Now you will read the photographs given to you."
Veronica--Jesus is coming through the blue lights. The sky is all lighted in blue now, and Jesus is coming through the light. He has on His--oh, I can see it very clearly now--His gown is a burgundy red, with a white undergarment. It's like a red cape over His white garment. And He has on--I can see His feet. Jesus is coming now closer. He's just about over the tree by the banner, the blue banner. And now He's touching His lips; it means that I have to listen.
Jesus--"My child, I know you were carried away in seeking a fortune. However, I do not wish this to be a habit."
Veronica--Oh, I cannot reveal publicly what I was carried away in the pictures about; however, if Our Lady wishes to reveal that in the future, She will. But we will put this down, Jesus said, in record that I was given approximately one, two, three very important photographs. As Jesus said, we are not in a fortune telling business, but the Eternal Father works in mysterious ways.
Jesus--"My child, you will continue to disperse the Message from Heaven. It is of great urgency, for a major crisis is coming upon your world.
"The balance is leaning heavily to the left. There is no way to right this balance except through chastisement. Man sets himself upon his own road, and it is in the merciful heart of the Father that He brings him back through suffering.
"The forces of evil are gathered now to take over a major position in your world and in My Church. However, the balance is in prayer. Those who are in the light will rise to this occasion and fight the evil by prayer, penance, acts of sacrifice, and action. Prayers without works cannot be constructive at this time.
WORLD ON COURSE TO DESTRUCTION
"Your world is fast proceeding on a course to destruction.
My Mother has spent years here with you, warning you and directing you back from your path of darkness. However, man has hardened his heart and closed his ears. In many places throughout your world, My Mother--Her voice has been silenced through the seers of the world. It is with great urgency that I tell you now you must go down upon your knees and make amends for the sins of mankind.
"I do not follow the words of My Mother to instill fear within your heart. I bring you the truth of what is to be. Some will reject this, as they prefer to cast aside anything that disturbs their spirit or their human nature. Is not it better, My children, to prepare and avoid, if you can, avoid a catastrophe?
"The Eternal Father will not force His will upon you. You must subjugate your human nature and give your will to the Eternal Father. Prayer, atonement, and sacrifice--is this too much to ask of you?"
Veronica--Now Jesus is going over to the left side of the trees, just over the trees. Now Our Lady is coming down. She's dressed all in white--beautiful, bright white. And She has on Her white gown, and I can see the golden rosebuds on Her slippers.
Now Our Lady is standing--She's moving over to Jesus' right side, and She's clasping Her very large Rosary in Her right hand, holding it out; and from Her left hand there is hanging a very large Scapular. It's the Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the brown Scapular. Our Lady is smiling and shaking Her head, yes.
Now Jesus is placing His hands out in front of Him, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
And now Our Lady and Jesus are moving over. They're just over the head of the statue, and Jesus is now placing His hand out. He's shifting His cloak onto His left arm, and He's placing His hand out, like this:
Jesus--"I bless you In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."
Veronica--Now Jesus is moving over, and the light behind Him is becoming very blue. Oh, it's a most beautiful blue! It's outstanding, because around Our Lady the blue is an absolute backdrop for Her beautiful white robe with the golden trim. Oh, it's beautiful!
Now Jesus is coming down closer over the tree. He's almost stepping on the top of the trees there. Oh, and He's now placing His hand out: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
THIEF IN THE NIGHT
Jesus--"I bless you, My children, as My Mother blesses you, with graces for cure and conversion.
"Continue on your mission of saving souls. Time is not measured by days nor hours, for there is no time in Heaven. The end shall come to you as a thief in the night. Be prepared and follow the direction of My Mother carefully. I repeat: She will not abandon you in the days ahead. But follow Her direction and you will not go through this crucible of suffering without hope."
Veronica--In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Now Our Lady and Jesus, They're backing up. They're not walking like we do; They're just like floating up. Oh! Right now--oh, They're standing there now. It's quite windy up there, because Jesus' gown is blowing. Oh, and Our Lady's, too--Her cloak is blowing out. Oh, it's a very voluminous cloak. Our Lady's dress also is very full; it's very full.
Now it's becoming quite dark in the sky about Our Lady and Jesus, but there is a blue cast, the most beautiful blue circlet of light, all about Our Lady and Jesus.
Jesus--"Continue, My children, with your prayers of atonement. They are sorely needed."
