Veronica--The sky directly over the statue is opening up. Our Lady is coming forward, but She's dressed in a very strange garment. Our Lady's gown is a white, a brilliant white, but She has upon Her a mantle that covers Her head down to Her feet, but the mantle is a black. I have never seen Our Lady with a full black mantle on. It's like you feel an imminence of warning. It's a feeling of sadness about Our Lady.
Now She's looking over to the right. But now Our Lady is turning, and I can see a child in Our Lady's arms, a very young child. I would say it looks almost like a newborn baby. Our Lady is extending the child like this and saying:
Our Lady--"My child, repeat after Me.
"See the carnage that man has wrought upon earth, and understand why, measure for measure, the world will be cleansed by trial.
WITHOUT A SOUL
"Man is creating now an abominable situation upon earth as he seeks to fly high to the realms of Heaven by seeking to create another being. I shall not, My children, venture to call this being 'human,' for it is the creation of man, coming forth without a soul. Satan, the master of deceit, has been the creator.
"My child and My children, I wear a garment of suffering and sorrow for all mankind, for this abomination shall increase. The world shall be given a just punishment, and the punishment, My children, shall come from man's hands.
"My child, I have asked you to flood your country now with the warning from Heaven that science and men of science must cease their striving to reach creation, for no man shall ever be able to create life. The shell shall be produced without life!
"My children and My child, I have counseled you in the past that unless mankind receives the Gospel, the Scriptures, with open heart and lives the meaningful life of an apostle of My Son, Jesus Christ, he will walk in darkness otherwise. And as he walks in darkness he will become an agent of hell and an instrument of satan.
"All hell now is loosed upon earth. As I have warned you over and over again, you are battling now with Lucifer. Not just his minor agents in human form, but Lucifer walks the earth now himself, unchained from Heaven because of the extensive sin of mankind, because man did not follow the directions from Heaven given in the past from various places through various seers. Man did not listen and act upon past warnings, and now the punishment is at hand.
"Why is it a human frailty that mankind does not learn by past experience but will create an error over and over, perpetrate an error and continue it to his own destruction? The present state of souls, the lack of spirituality--many are empty bodies now, with dead souls.
"In these days, My children, many manifestations will take place. You will test the spirits, for you are living now in the days of the war of the spirits. Lucifer has great knowledge of the supernatural, so you will test the spirits.
"My child, We will continue to give you photographs of knowledge. You will give them to all who seek the truth.
"It is time now, My child, that you learn not to waste valuable time in trying to reason out the rejection of man. It is best that you go forward and find another. Each and every soul is important for Heaven.
"The world's peoples must listen now to My counsel. The Eternal Father is much distressed as the offenses to Him increase. The Eternal Father knows of the day and the hour for your chastisement. Because of His mercy, His all-knowing merciful heart, He has allowed Me to come to you as your Mother, the spiritual Mother of earth, to counsel you in this final period of your era.
"I counsel you, and even admonish you as your Mother, to retain the Faith as given from My Son to His Apostles in the Book of life, your Bible. This Book must not be changed in wording to please man, but man must change his way, the ways that offend His God, to please the Eternal Father in Heaven in the Trinity.
"My children, I could go on and on, repeating and adding to the offenses against your God that are being committed daily in your lifetimes. Needless to say, sin is insanity; and the world's peoples will look askance--I say, My children, many will look askance at the developments as time goes on. All who are living will soon envy the dead, for sin is truly insanity.
SHEEP GROWING THIN
"This sin has now encroached upon the clergy in My Son's House, His Church. A great measure of responsibility has been given to them to save and guide the sheep. The pastures are rich, but the sheep grow thin! They are not being fed spiritual food.
"The world must not reject the knowledge of the supernatural and the spirit. The world is of the flesh and the devil! My children, you must make your choice now: will you be of the world, the flesh, and the devil, or can you live in the spirit for the short time given, left for mankind.
ANGEL OF DEATH
"I assure you, My children, it will be worth your while to take yourselves now from the world, earth, that has been given to satan for a short time. It is a testing ground now for all, be it laity or clergy, or unbelievers. All mankind must receive the Message from Heaven, for death, the angel of death will not be guided by race, color, creed, or religion. And I assure you, My children, you will soon understand the meaning of the angel of death in your country.
"You will all keep a constant vigilance of prayer going throughout your country and the world. Penance, atonement, and sacrifice, My children, I beg of you! Do this in faith. I extend to you My Immaculate Heart, a heart much torn in care for the conditions of the world.
"I beg of you as your Mother to listen to My words of counsel, for this counsel comes directly from the Eternal Father in Heaven. The hand of punishment is extended for mankind. It grows very heavy, My children. How long can I hold it from upon you?"
OUR LADY WEARING BLACK MANTLE
Veronica--Our Lady now is going over to our left side--that's Her right side of the sky. I don't see the child any longer that She was holding; but now She has in Her right hand the Rosary, the beautiful Rosary. She looks very sad, and I tell you, the black mantle She's wearing makes Her look almost like She's been to a funeral or something. Very sad.
Our Lady now is taking the Rosary, Her beautiful white Rosary with the golden Our Father. She's extending it out and making the sign of the cross with the huge crucifix: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. It's a beautiful golden crucifix that Our Lady is holding out.
Now She's turning over to the left, Her left--that's our right side--and Our Lady is now floating. She doesn't walk; She's just carried like She's weightless, across the sky. And She's stopping now directly over the banner and leaning forward, and with Her crucifix, the huge golden crucifix, She's making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Our Lady is floating across. Now over on the left side of the sky, I can see a gathering of angels. I know they're angels from their garments, and they have wreaths about their heads. I don't know just if they're girls or boys, and it's very difficult to distinguish the angels. I can't see their faces too well, but they appear to have hair, in the light, the brilliant light; and they have garlands of roses on their heads. And they're following Our Lady now across the sky.
Our Lady is directly over the banner on the right side, our right side, and She's extending Her crucifix out: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Now Our Lady is going back across the sky. She's standing directly in the center. Now She is placing the crucifix to Her lips. Now Our Lady is nodding to listen.
Our Lady--"My child, your experience was to give you wisdom. You must never sleep, My child, without your protection, your crucifix, about your neck. I have told you in the past that satan never sleeps.
"I realize why now you must be cautioned regularly, My child. Your household duties and your heavy mailing may make you forgetful. I will ask Tusazeri to guide you constantly. Remember, My child, you must never be without your crucifix."
Veronica--Now Our Lady is making the sign of the cross again: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Our Lady--"If you care to, My child, you may explain our conversation."
Veronica--Well, I had gone to bed last night, and I couldn't sleep. I, I was very tired; I should have been able to fall off to sleep.
I had washed myself and taken the cross from about my neck and laid it down on the table because I didn't want the water to perhaps rust the crucifix or soil it. I always have a habit, I thought, of placing it back on my neck. Instead I had fallen asleep without my crucifix about my neck. Well, all during last night I was pummeled from the shoulders and all through my back. Somebody was pounding me all night, and I didn't sleep a wink!
And shortly before that, Ann [Ferguson; Veronica's secretary] had taken a miraculous photograph that we had asked for. It's quite a long story why I had to ask for the photograph, but in this photograph there was a sign for "P," for "pray," because 666, which is satan himself, was going to--had a plan against you. To pray.
Well obviously I should have said another Rosary before retiring, or I wouldn't have forgotten my crucifix. So I know now the pounding on my back all night was satan trying to toss me out of the bed. It was something that you'd have to experience to understand; I could never explain it to you. I wasn't frightened; I was very annoyed. But it--still you see how powerful satan is: with all the pummelling and being up all night, it never dawned on me--my mind was clouded--that I didn't have my crucifix about my neck. And that--I believe this is only the second time that has ever happened in all the eight years with Our Lady's mission. So you see, satan never sleeps. So you have to wear your sacramentals, heavy sacramentals, even at night.
All about the trees there's a bright glow of a pink coloring. It's beautiful. I can't explain it. The pink is a very soft pastel shade of pink. It's nothing that I have seen in a sky coloring before on earth here. And over Our Lady's statue the sky is opening up like a--I can't explain it; it's like a mist being blown away. There are no clouds; it's an overcast night, but the mist is blowing now, and it's becoming very, very lighted, very warm and lighted.
And directly through the center of this brilliant, very brilliant light, I can see Jesus coming forward. His feet are very evident now. He has on sandals, brown sandals. I have never seen this styling of the sandals before on Him. It's a thong-like type of sandal with a piece that goes about His ankle. He still has the marks on His feet from the crucifixion. I should think that the thong would be hurting His instep because they're very bruised.
Oh, Jesus has a beige type of gown. It's very long; His feet just come out from under the gown. It's very full. And He has a belt-like cording about His waist. It's made of also a skin type of belting. I don't know what the material is. It looks like it might be some type of animal skin, a soft animal skin, and I can see where it's belted at Jesus' right side. It's hanging down in a couple of pieces.
Now Jesus has a mantle on. It's a very deep burgundy-colored mantle. The headpiece--I can see the gathering of the headpiece behind His neck, on His hair. It's like hanging down over His shoulders, and there's a piece of string-like cord at His neck that's holding it onto His shoulders about His neck.
Now Jesus is looking all about Him. He's smiling. He has a beautiful smile. Oh, His eyes are so beautiful! Oh, I can't explain them! I have never seen anyone with eyes so beautiful! They are, they look a gray-blue. Oh, and Jesus has like a beard, but it's very well taken care of, very well-trimmed and neat. He's smiling.
Oh, now Jesus is extending His hand out, like this, in front of Him with His, like three fingers extended, 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 nodding, and He's placing His first finger to His mouth. That means to listen.
Jesus--"My child and My children, what more can I add to the counsel of My Mother that could bring to you the great sadness that has been set into the hearts of all Heaven. Though My Mother has wandered to and fro across your earth, counseling you and warning you, the evil continues to accelerate.
"My children, understand full well that no evil is ever triumphant, but the way of the Eternal Father cannot be known to mankind. His judgment cannot be explained to mankind, for it's beyond human reasoning. But I say unto you as your God that mankind is living in a cesspool of sin, and sin is death.
"My children, as you know, your world is receiving many minor warnings that have passed by unnoticed as such.
CHARITY WILL GROW COLD
"As you continue daily, the sins of the flesh are increasing. The offenses to morality are increasing. Man has taken his body, his human body which is the temple for his spirit, and is defiling his flesh, casting out the light until you will have living bodies with dead souls. My children, when this happens, will you call yourselves human, as murders will abound upon earth? Charity will grow cold. All sins of the flesh being committed and multiplied unto murder! I could go on, My children, listing again and again the aberrations to you, and for what?
"Do you go about now saying, 'There is time! And where is this promise of His coming?' My children, believe Me when I say unto you: the day and the hour is known to Heaven. It will be a time when you least expect it. Will you be prepared? How well are you preparing yourself for your exit from earth? Can you stand there as a human creature, whether in the light or in darkness, and say that you will not pass over the veil?
"All human flesh must go into the dust sooner or later. However, your soul, your spirit, is immortal. That means it cannot die; it will not die. It continues to live, though known as dead souls upon earth. It is the state of the spirit on earth. If you allow the light to leave your body, you will succumb to Lucifer, satan; and when your pilgrimage is over upon earth, you will be given to Lucifer, satan. Is this what you want? You were placed upon earth to honor your God, to love Him and to serve Him. And now you serve Lucifer, His adversary. For what?
WHEN CHURCH AND WORLD UNITE
"Lucifer is the prince of darkness and the father of all heresy and liars. I say this with great anguish, for Lucifer has entered into My Church, My household. The battle is great upon earth, and when the battle reaches into My Church, it will be a testing ground for all of earth and the world. For when My Church and the world become one, know that the end is at hand.
"My children, My Mother will counsel you in your trials and the time of tribulation. She will not abandon you in your struggles. You must all pray more. Detach yourselves from your worldly living and pray. It is your contact with Heaven. You must all lead and live and practice more spiritual life. Worldliness and worldly pursuits are as nothing to you. There is not one worldly, materialistic thing or person that will be able to save you or give you necessary merit when you come over the veil for judgment.
"Every man, woman, and child of the age of conscience has his soul to save. What will it gain a man if he gathers all of the treasures of the world, sells his soul to get to the head?
"Have you not listened to My Mother's counsel about hell, the abode of the damned? Have you not listened to Her counsel about the place of purging, purgatory? Oh, no! With itching ears you listen to the adversary who seeks to disprove this knowledge.
"Accept the facts in truth, My children. I had it written all down for you in the Book of life, your Bible. What are you reading but filth and pornography! You will not save your soul in that manner. Your children will be lost to Heaven in that manner.
"As parents you must treasure your children's souls. Keep them shining in goodness and holiness and purity. Many children of tender age have been robbed of this purity. Woe to the man who scandalizes the young!
"My children, when My Mother warned you of the arrival of Lucifer upon earth, She prepared you for his advance upon mankind and his plan. You will review Her counsel and act upon it. And I say unto you all: prayer, penance, and atonement for all! For the time given in the Book of life, the Bible, is at hand. Read your Apocalypse, the words of Saint John written in script. Learn by it. Ask for guidance in the Holy Spirit to give you knowledge in reading.
NO CHURCH OF MAN
"Do not try to set up a new church of man upon earth, for a church in darkness wears a band of death about it.
"My children, pray a constant vigilance of prayer in your country, in your homes, your schools. Pray, but act also, for prayers without action is like placing a mess of meat on a dead man's grave."
Veronica--Now Jesus is extending His hand forward, like this, and making the sign of the cross. Now Jesus is touching His finger to His lips.
Jesus--"My child, I must caution you: you must not forget your crucifix. Be well guarded when you leave your home.
"Yes, My child, you will give out the message, for there is no room for pride or self-concern in your mission. The great sacrifice is asked that you strip yourself of all worldly pride."
