[Acting on instructions from Our Lady, Veronica accepted the offer from the police department to move the site of the vigils to Flushing Meadows Park. This was the first vigil to be held at the new location.]
Veronica--Oh, my goodness! Oh, I'm startled to see the blue lights appearing here over our heads. Now the sky is opening, just like when we were over by the sacred grounds.
Now--oh, I see two beautiful figures of men with long robes coming through the sky. Oh, I recognize them. They're Michael and Gabriel. Oh, my!
Now there's a light over on the, on Michael's right side--oh, a tremendous white light. It's very brilliant. Oh, and there--oh, I can see Him! There's--oh, Jesus is standing by Michael.
Jesus--"My child, why are you so shocked? I promised that I would be with you this evening. I always keep My promise, My child.
"I traveled far in My day, My child, forced by adversity to move on.
GROUNDS TO BE PURIFIED
"You will not return to the sacred grounds until the area has been purified, My child.
"I have directed you in the past to take your ears away from the guidance of the human mind. You will listen only in the spirit.
"Know, My child, that the way is difficult to many.
"A deep darkness surrounds now a shrine of purity. You must keep a constant vigilance of prayer.
"Pride and obstinance, My child, and arrogance shall send many mitres into the abyss. You must pray much and do great atonement for your clergy.
"This evening, My child, My Mother shall not appear in sight to you. Alas, My heart bleeds, for My Mother is a prisoner now upon Her own grounds. You will comfort Her at this time, My child, by recovering many souls for Heaven with your prayers and acts of atonement.
"Make known the message to the world. My Mother's voice shall not be stilled. The Message of Heaven must go quickly throughout the world, My child, for the time is growing short.
"Hearts have been hardened, ears have been closed to the Message from Heaven, My child, only because they are on the road in deep darkness.
"How often has My Mother counseled you to avoid the snares of satan set forth in humanism and modernism among you!
"The children of the world are truly the victims of their elders. Parents shall shed tears of bitter misery, for they will be rejected by their children.
"There shall be discord in homes, and the parents who have set their children onto the road of spiritual darkness, My child, shall reap the reward of their evil--lacking discipline, and setting their children's hearts without mercy, without love, and without knowledge of their God.
"Many, My child, are feasting in My houses, sowing seeds of discord and impurity! Cleanse your House now, My clergy, for My hand shall descend upon you!
"The knowledge of the supernatural must not be taken from the hearts of My children. My shepherds, awaken from your blindness; you are misleading Our sheep! How long shall the Eternal Father persevere in hoping that you shall turn from your present ways that are leading souls onto the road to perdition? Hasten, harken, and listen, for the warning given to you now is one of the final warnings being given to mankind.
"All who have given themselves to the pleasures of the flesh, all who have given themselves to the new modes of humanism and modernism set down for ensnarement of the human race by satan, all those who close their ears to Our voices, shall burn!
NO SPIRITUAL EARTHLY DIRECTOR
"You, My child, shall not concern yourself with the opinion of others. You will accept no spiritual earthly director, My child, for I have counseled you in the past, and I will continue to counsel you in the future.
"I must ask this sacrifice of you, My child, to remain away from the sacred grounds until your bishop is given his sign. This will not be long in coming.
"Open, My children, My children of the light, your hearts to those who have gone into darkness. Offer, in your charity, My children, prayers of atonement for your brothers and sisters who have gone into darkness. Only a few will be saved in the final count.
"Yes, My children, you will receive graces in photographs. Nothing is impossible with the Eternal Father. He has a plan for everything, My child. Even your sufferings are put to good use.
"Pray for your enemies. Love those who castigate you, My child. Accept the way of the cross, My child. It is the short road to the Kingdom of the Eternal Father.
"Know, My children, that I am always with you. My Mother is with you. We will guide you in the future. Your future is now. The days grow short. Accept your cross, My children, and go forward searching as candles in the darkness.
"As disciples of the Eternal Father, you will truly be the light of the world. I give you, My children, the simple honor of following Me as lights in the world.
"My heart will shine in your darkened world; My Blood shall be your salvation.
"My child, you will continue your mission with patience and perseverance. Throughout the world, throughout mankind, We have chosen many as voice-boxes for Heaven, My child. It is truly a heavy cross, but one that shall make the road to the Kingdom, the Eternal Kingdom of the Father, much shorter for you.
"Do not do your deeds before mankind to be known, My child, but do them in secret, for the Father Who sees them in secret will surely reward you. If you win the acclaim of mankind, My child, you will then have received your reward. Accept the rejection, the persecution, My child; it is all part of the cross."
Veronica--Now Jesus is placing His hand in front of Him, like this:
Jesus--"I bless you, My children, and I give you peace of heart, My children, in your present struggles. Know that you shall travel the way of the cross.
"My evening with you is not over, My children. Proceed with your prayers of atonement. I have much to discuss with you.
"You will now be seated, My child.
"My child, know the plan from Heaven: the numbers that will gather will triple and far exceed what you could ever expect in your human expectations, My child. There will be cures and conversions beyond what man has experienced in your country. It is in this manner, My child, that the work for My Mother's Shrine shall go forward.
"The sufferings you will accept for the propagation of the mission of My Blessed Mother shall be in reward to you the recovery of many souls for the Kingdom of the Eternal Father. Names shall be written in Heaven, My child.
"I allow your persecution, My children; I allow you to be walking outside the sacred grounds, for there are many souls to reach in this manner. The Eternal Father has full control of your world. The sorting continues--the separation, My children, of the sheep from the goats.
"You are now true disciples of the Eternal Father. We hold you close to Our hearts, and We shall comfort you as you go along Our way.
HOLD BACK THE DARKNESS
"You will use the expression, My children, 'Let us hold back the darkness.'
"All who receive this discipleship, My child, shall separate themselves from worldly living. You are fast approaching the establishment of the monastery. Do not grow impatient, My child. It will all come to pass in the will of the Eternal Father.
"Have pity upon your neighbors, My children. Pray for them. Pray for those who castigate you. Pray for those who slander you, for in their hearts many are misled and truly do not know what they have done. Do not judge, lest you be judged, My children. Accept your cross and carry it without complaint."
Veronica--Now I see a man is coming at the right side of Jesus. Oh, I know it's Saint Francis! I can see him because he has his brown habit on and sandals, and he has a light tan-colored--it's like a belt, but it's like a piece of rope, though, about his waist. And he has--He's now showing me his large Rosary.
St. Francis--"My child, Veronica, we despair in Heaven, for we do not see the beads of prayer being fingered often in our monasteries.
"Many of our brothers of the orders have given themselves to worldly living, My child. They do not know that they have fallen into the snare of satan. The simple life, My child, is the best for the dedicated.
"The dedicated, those who have accepted a vocation, must live only as human beings in the world, but must accept the spiritual.
"Our brothers of the cloth, My child, have rejected the supernatural. They are running fast onto the road to perdition. Pray for them, My child. The simple life of pure dedication and the simple rule is all that can keep them from falling into the abyss.
"Discipline must be returned to the orders. Many must now retire from the world that has been given to satan.
"Know now, my brothers and sisters of religious orders, you will be mocked, you will be scorned, but you will please the Eternal Father and receive your reward in the Kingdom. Shall you trade your eternal life with God the Father for a few short years of plenty upon your earth? Many have sold their souls to get to the head."
Veronica--Now Saint Francis is gliding over. They don't walk like we do. It seems that the air is just carrying him over by the left side of Jesus. And he's standing now. And he has a wooden rod in his hand--looks almost like a walking stick, but it's just a long stick, and he's pointing over to the right side of the sky.
And he's saying now as he's pointing with his large stick . . . . There's a--oh, a large Book, a Bible now sitting in the sky; I can recognize from the pages turning. It's suspended. And now I see the cross growing very dark. It had a large cross on the cover, but it's becoming almost black.
St. Francis--"See my child, the desecration of the words! Change, change, and the Book in darkness!
"Man must not change the words of the Book of life to suit his own human nature, but he must continue with truth in knowledge--truth that goes back through the ages to all who were given the light by the Eternal Father.
"No man shall set himself above the Eternal Father, either in knowledge--"
Veronica--Oh, now I see a large dome, and I can't see Saint Francis anymore. But I see a large dome, and I know it's Rome.
Oh, and standing on a balcony--there's a large window, and over to the left I can see Pope Paul, and he's waving. He has on a white robe, and I can see a very large cross suspended from his neck on a chain, a golden cross. And he's waving now.
TWO EVIL-LOOKING CARDINALS
And standing behind him are two men. I know they're cardinals. But oh, they're not nice to look at. Oh, my! These two men, cardinals, don't look like they're graced. Oh, they look evil.
And now, written above on the--it's right on the stones above Pope Paul's head, and arrows pointing to the two cardinals. There are words: "A CONSPIRACY OF EVIL AGAINST THE PAPACY." Oh, my goodness! A conspiracy of evil against the papacy. Oh, dear!
Now it's growing--the sky is growing very dark. I can't see the Holy Father. Now there's a light on the right side. Oh, and Jesus is coming forward.
Jesus--"My child, it is true. There is a conspiracy of evil to unseat your Holy Father, Our Vicar. You must pray much for him, for when he is removed, one will take the Seat of Peter to destroy Our houses throughout the world--churches, My child.
"Know, My children, why you suffer this heavy cross. There is a conspiracy of evil now in your country to stop the good work and the Message from Heaven.
"Yes, My child, it is sad but true that many will give themselves to the destroyer for the love of money and worldly power.
"The time, My child, for the Warning must remain a secret.
"My child, man has not profited from his past history. He goes forward blindly sowing the seeds of his own destruction. As it was in the time of Noe, so it shall be upon your earth: man shall be eating and drinking and marrying, and then will come the end.
"Man of science ever seeking, but never coming to the truth.
"A country is designed for destruction, My child, when that country has turned from his Creator and given himself over to debasements of the flesh! Paganism, immorality, lust, licentious conduct--all this and more will send a country to its destruction.
"Your country, My children, has been protected always by My Mother. However, you have taken it upon yourselves to reject Her and turn yourselves to your carnal nature. The sins of the flesh shall send many into the abyss.
"Your country shall not escape the great War. Your country shall not escape the cleansing by the Ball of Redemption.
"We shall, My child, continue to enlighten you through photographs. You will now consult with Our children and see the proof, My child.
Veronica--Someone here took pictures. Can I see them? Someone took pictures. I have to see them.
Jesus--"I have come again to bless all sacramentals."
Veronica--All who are able to, please kneel.
Oh, Jesus is very--oh, the light is very, very bright, but I can see His cloak. He has on His red, burgundy-colored cloak. And now Jesus is shifting it over to His left arm, and He's pointing now to His chest. Oh, He has a huge heart. It's a very deep red heart, but there seems to be a dagger through it. Oh!
WON'T YOU SOLACE JESUS?
Jesus--"Yes, My child, it is My pierced heart, My sorrowing heart. Won't you, in your charity, solace Me?"
Veronica--Oh, now Jesus is coming forward, and He's placing His hand out in front of Him, like this, and His three fingers are extended, and He's leaning over now and making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now behind Him the sky is opening up. And oh, I can see Michael and Raphael and Gabriel, and oh, many, many children. They look like children. They're very young, dressed in all colors--gowns. It's just beautiful! It looks almost like a May party. Beautiful colored gowns--pinks and blues and a fuchsia color. The colors are oh, so beautiful, absolutely beautiful!
Now they're holding in their hands garlands; they look like wreaths of green leaves, like processional wreaths. And now they're, they're just holding them in their hands, and they're going over and following Jesus. Jesus is moving over to our left side. He's looking down now, and He's placing His hand out again, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now He's coming over--it seems like such a wide expanse of sky--now He's coming over to our right side, and He's looking down. Now His fingers are being joined together, like this, and He's making--oh, the sign of the Trinity: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Jesus--"I bless you, My children, as My Mother blesses you. Continue with your prayers of atonement. All sacramentals have been blessed. There is no need to remove them from their packages. Graces for conversion and graces for cure, I extend to you in your faith."
Veronica--In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Jesus is--oh, it must be very windy up there. I can see His gown is being caught by the wind. It's very windy. Oh, Jesus doesn't have any shoes on; His feet are bare. Oh, and I can see the wounds on the tops of His instep. Oh, and Jesus is smiling now. And He's pushing His hair back. I can see Jesus' hair very plainly now. It's a--well, it's a brown, but it looks almost reddish--perhaps from His robe, from the top of His cape, makes His hair look a beautiful sort of a russet color, oh, in the light.
Now Jesus is touching His lips.
Jesus--"You will continue, My children, with your prayers of atonement. They are sorely needed at this time. As I have told you in the beginning, the time is approaching for the Chastisement to mankind. Your country will go through great trial. We have asked; We have begged; My Mother has come to you with Her Message from Heaven, which you have chosen to reject of your own free will. All those who have listened will go through this crucible of suffering with great hope in their redemption.
"Know that there will be sent upon you a fiery Ball from the heavens. Many will die in this great flame of the Ball of Redemption. I do not give you fear, but I give you fact, My children. Prepare your souls and the souls of those you love. The time of great sorrows is approaching."
Veronica--In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
