Veronica--There are two long beams of blue light coming from far behind Our Lady's statue through the sky. Over on our left side at the end of the beam of light, Our Lady is coming forward. And on the other light beam Jesus is also coming forward. And the light, the beams now are moving. It is almost like a carpeting of blue for Our Lady and Jesus to walk over. However, They're not walking; They are gliding, coming forward almost as though They were carried on the wind.
Jesus is standing with His hand over His heart. His cape is like a mantle, His cape, because it's covering His head and falling over His shoulders down to the ground.
Jesus--"I appear with My Mother, My child. It is not My usual custom, but because of this great trial upon your family, I have joined with My Mother to give you your message, a short one, My child.
"The greatest of trials, My child, will be given to those who have been chosen for special missions upon your earth. It is truly the way of the cross. My Mother and I are united with the symbol of My cross before mankind."
Veronica--Now high in the sky over Jesus and Our Lady, there are appearing two huge hearts. And now the hearts are coming together in the center, and there is a band around them. It is like a crown of thorns being placed about the two Immaculate Hearts.
Our Lady now is coming forward. She's standing just directly above Her statue.
Our Lady--"My child, We give you great trial in your lifetime. Do not question the ways of the Eternal Father in your anguish, My child. The road to Heaven will always be filled with thorns, for your pilgrimage upon your earth is a pilgrimage of sorrow, trial, requiring perseverance, hope, and faith.
"My child, We ask for victim souls, victims to do penance through sacrifice for the Eternal Father, Who watches a generation that has become perverse.
"Your Holy Father in Rome suffers much, for there are many traitors within the ranks.
"My children, pray a constant vigilance of prayer for your clergy. The greatest of abominations are entering upon the hearts and deeds of Our dedicated, Our clergy. Because of the prayers of many, because of the sacrifices made by the few--and I say the few--there are those of high rank who are beginning to see the light. I say this, My children, in not as a poetical term, but as a literal fact.
WARS AND FAMINE
"There will be wars. There will be famine. It will be brother against brother and sister against sister, for sin has become a way of life for many. The wages of sin is death, death of the spirit. Do not be concerned, My children, of the death of the body, for it is the eternal soul that the Father seeks to gain."
Veronica--Our Lady now is rising high up into the sky, and She's taking Her Rosary from about Her waist and placing the crucifix of Her beautiful Rosary out in front of Her, like this, and making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Our Lady--"I bless you all, My children. With My Son I bless you, for the Father I bless you, and send for My Son with His acknowledgment, the Spirit of truth among you."
Veronica--Jesus is smiling. I can see through the tremendous light that is coming out from His face. It's lighting up the whole area about us. Jesus is now touching His first finger to His lips, which means to listen.
Jesus--"My children, through countless earth-years My Mother has wandered throughout your world bringing you a warning, a direction from Heaven, to turn back from your ways that offend the Eternal Father much. Many warnings have been given to mankind, and many more shall be given, these warnings increasing in ferocity until man shall be embroiled in a major War.
WHEN THE HOLY FATHER FLEES
"My child, you speculate much about the coming Warning. I have asked you many times not to speculate on dates, but I give you one indication that the time is ripe. When you see, when you hear, when you feel the revolution in Rome, when you see the Holy Father fleeing, seeking a refuge in another land, know that the time is ripe. But beg and plead that your good Pontiff does not leave Rome, for he will allow the man of dark secrets to capture his throne.
"There is in your world today a spirit of evil loosed upon mankind. All manners of filth and abomination are spewed upon mankind. The man of dark secrets, Mr. 666, the agents of hell, the forces of evil are now among you. Many minds are being poisoned by satan, My children. Recognize the faces of evil about you. Do not fall prey to all manner of experimentation, to modernism and humanism, for it follows close upon satanism.
SKIN WILL DRY UP
"Many leaders who wear the red hats, My children--pray for them, for many have fallen to satan. I say unto you, as your God: Turn back, Red Hats, for you, too, shall meet the fires of hell. The Red Hat has fallen, and the Purple Hat is being misled. Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth! Houses will blow in the wind, and skin will dry up and blow off the bones as if it had never been! Eyes will see and still not believe, so great is the power of satan now upon mankind.
"I warn you now, My children, that you must turn back and start again. Do not renew My Church by commending it to satan, by destroying it. You cannot destroy the foundation. You crumble the walls. Like rats you are burrowing, O Red Hats, into the foundation of My Church. I say unto you, there is not a man living upon earth now who hears My voice that shall not face the great trial ahead.
"My Mother, your Mother, the Mediatrix between God and man--respect Her, listen to Her message, for She has come to you through the merciful heart of the Eternal Father to a perverse generation that is calling down upon it its own destruction. You run to and fro, your scientists run back and forth, always seeking and searching but never coming to the truth, for they have lost the knowledge of their God. They have lost the knowledge of the supernatural, using rationalization until sin and evil have become a way of life among you.
"Many children will be taken out of your world, My child, to save their souls.
"What does it gain a man if he gather all of the world's riches and suffers the loss of his soul? Your earth-years are few. Each man must pass beyond the veil and be judged. And do not fall for the delusion of there being no judgment, for, My children, you will find out too soon.
DISPERSE THE DEMONS
"You will all keep a constant vigilance of prayer going throughout your country and the world. If you recognize, if you accept the truth and the knowledge of the supernatural, you will know the great power of prayer to disperse the demons. I give you this lesson of reality, My children: the demons cannot stay with the sound of prayer ringing in the air.
"Pray a constant vigilance of prayer for your Vicar. He is under great trial. He is being crucified by his own. Pray for your children, the young souls that are being fed polluted waters in the name of truth.
"I, your God, command those who hold rank in My Church to remove the heretics; excommunicate those who have set themselves to join secret societies to demolish My Church. Do not compromise your Faith, My children, for there is only one direction you will proceed, and that is down."
Veronica--Jesus is placing His hand in front of Him, like this, and making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Our Lady now is gliding over to our left side, high up over the trees. Our Lady has on a beautiful pale blue mantle. It's trimmed in gold all about the outside. And Her gown is a cream-colored, very billowing gown, with a cord, a golden cord, tied about Her waist.
Our Lady now is loosening Her Rosary from about Her waist, and extending Her crucifix out and making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Our Lady--"I bless you all, My children, and give you the grace through the Eternal Father, the grace of cures of the body and cures of the spirit.
GO FORWARD WITH DISCIPLINE, PRAYER
"Pray, My children, a constant vigilance of prayer. Do not allow My warning to fall on deaf ears. You must go forward as a militant group, My children, filled with discipline, and no self-seeking; but you must go forward with prayer and the sacramentals I have given to you through your prophets and the ages, the years of earth's time. They are your armor, My children, and you will not fall into the web of satan if you use your sacramentals. Put them to good use, My children; arm your little ones against the forces of evil about you."
Veronica--Our Lady now is going over to our right side, and She's coming up behind Jesus. And Jesus is standing now and looking down upon the people over on the right side, and He's extending His hand down, like this, and making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Our Lady now is rising very high up into the sky, and She's--now the sky is becoming very, very bright, very bright, and Our Lady is pointing upward with Her hand, and there is a tremendous white cross now forming in the sky. It's a brilliant cross. And now--it's a large cross, but behind it, I see many, many smaller crosses. They are also white. It's like a field, a whole field of crosses.
PUT SUFFERING TO GOOD CAUSE
Our Lady--"My child, you are observing many who shall wear the white robes in Heaven. Many martyrs shall be made, My child, in the days ahead. Many shall gain their crown through suffering. It is truly the way of the cross, My child, to Heaven. Do not let a moment go by, My child, without using, without putting your suffering to good cause.
"A simple lesson was given to you by your guide, Saint Theresa the Little Flower. Review your lessons, My child, in your books. You will gather these messages, My child, and place them into a book.
"Know that your trial of this evening was planned by the Eternal Father in Heaven.
"Why are you crying, My child? You should rejoice, as We rejoice in Heaven. You shall receive great grace, My child, from your suffering. I give this to you as a riddle, a puzzle, but the next few days will give you the answer. Smile, My child, for there is great joy in Heaven when We are joined by the angels.
"You must understand, My child, that many are allowed to suffer for reason. You, My child, will tell your daughter that Heaven truly works in mysterious ways for the salvation of souls. The greatest sorrow one day will be turned to the greatest joy.
"Remember, My child, I, as your Mother, fully understand the great sorrow in your heart, for did I not give My Son to the Eternal Father? Did I not have My heart torn asunder by this loss? Yes, My child, I also had a human nature. I could cry; I could be sorrowful. I felt a great sadness, My child. I feel, and I give to you the simple lesson: It is only through experience, My child, that can we have true compassion for the sufferer.
"Now, My child, you will fully understand the way of the cross. After penance, My child, there is always a great joy.
"I bless you, My child. You will be given the strength to continue with your mission. Accept, My child, the will of the Eternal Father without question. I assure you, My child, He always has your best interest at hand."
Veronica--Our Lady now is placing Her crucifix 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.
Our Lady--"My children, My child, continue with your prayers of atonement. Many graces shall be gathered for those who are roaming in the darkness. One day you will all understand and be joyful with the knowledge that your sacrifice and your penance has saved many from the abyss."
Veronica--I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. Oh! He descended into hell; the third day arose again from the dead; He ascended into Heaven . . . He ascended into Heaven . . .
. . . She ascended into Heaven . . . [Veronica sees her newly-deceased seventeen-month-old granddaughter, who waves to her. Veronica begins to weep.]
Our Lady--"You see, My child, all cannot be understood at this time in your human nature.
"Pray, My child, a constant vigilance of prayer. Pray for perseverance, My child."
Our Lady--"Continue now, My child, with your prayers. You will understand all soon.
"I did not promise you a life of ease. I did not promise you a life of security. I only directed that you would carry your cross.
"That is better, My child. Do not be concerned; you are still human, My child.
"All pure spirits are beautiful, My child. They fill you with amazement. But this is only a small measure, My child, of what is over the veil.
"Do not shed another tear, My child; your loved one has been saved. But cry for those who have not received this grace, My child, for many souls are falling into hell as fast as the snowflakes that fall from your heavens. Pray for all men of sin, the poor souls, My children, who have no one to pray for them. Without your prayers, they would be lost forever to the Eternal Father.
"Your city, New York, is teetering, My child, teetering on a brink of destruction of its own making. There are forces of evil gathered within your city. Keep a constant vigilance of prayer, My child, going. Only your prayers will hold back this great evil. Without these prayers, My children, there will be a great destructive act committed in your city of New York. The forces of evil are gathering. Pray, My children.
"Continue now, My child, with your prayers of atonement, and read your photographs."
