The Message of Our Lady and Our Lord to Veronica of the Cross

"Your country . . . will lose a great statesman"

October 1, 1983

In honor of St. Theresa

Veronica—All about the trees there are the translucent blue lights that always announce the coming of Our Lady, and that means to get ready. There is a beautiful white light now opening up in a circular pattern high above the trees in the sky. And directly in the center of the light, I can see Our Lady, Our Blessed Mother. She's coming forward very fast. And right behind Her I notice there has been a cast of pink also, pink lights all about the trees. And right behind Her I can see Jesus coming forward. They are coming forward very fast.

Now Our Lady is moving over to the right. She has on a beautiful white gown, and the light about Our Lady brings out the vividness of Her gown, so that it looks absolutely brilliant. Our Lady has on a white long gown. And also Her mantle, which reaches from Her head to Her feet, is also white but trimmed with a border of gold all around the edging of Her mantle.

Our Lady has on Her head the most beautiful crown. It's Her Fatima crown. Our Lady has worn it on several occasions before, and it's an absolutely gorgeous crown.

Our Lady has Her hands together, like this. And about Her fingers She has the beautiful Rosary, the Rosary with the golden Our Fathers and the white Hail Marys.

Our Lady is looking upward, and She's motioning now with Her hand. Oh, and Jesus is coming forward. He's dressed also in a very brilliant cape. Now it's burgundy color, but it has—the light all about Jesus makes Him very translucent and brilliant.

And Jesus' hair is blowing very softly about His shoulders. It must be quite windy up there this evening. Now Jesus has nothing on His feet. He has no sandals.

And Our Lady has on Her golden sandals that have at the tips of the toes—across one bracket of Her sandal, She has the little gold rosettes on each foot.

Now Our Lady is looking up and smiling towards Jesus, and He's nodding. Our Lady now is looking all about Her, and She's taking Her beautiful Rosary with the large golden crucifix and placing it out, like this, and making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. She's blessing the people.

Now Our Lady is looking up towards Jesus, and He now is extending His hand out, like this, and making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Jesus is pointing up to the sky on our right side, His left side, and high up in the sky there is forming a ball with a cross on the top, but the ball is all black. And underneath it—there are flames forming under the ball. It's very awful, horrible-looking. It's frightening that these flames are now reaching up to the ball.

Now Our Lady is motioning to me, and She's placing Her first finger to Her lips, which means to listen and repeat.

Our Lady—"My child and My children, and My child, Veronica, We hasten to bring you here this evening in your ill state because of the urgency of what is to take place within your world.


"There is only one recourse to hold back the flames, My child, that you have viewed: that is an outpouring to Heaven of penance and prayer and sacrifice. Your world is heading towards a cataclysm of massive proportion. Many parents shall lose their sons and shall cry to Heaven, 'Why, oh why, has this come upon our world?'

"O My children, how often have I appealed to you to listen to My words of caution and warning. I have tried through countless earth-years to guide you away from this cataclysm; but no, so many have chosen to ignore My warnings. These warnings came from all Heaven—the Eternal Father Who watches and knows all that has taken place, that will take place, and that has been taking place.

"O My children, so much is in store for you in Heaven, and yet so many shall not see these pearls.

"My child, you must hasten to get all of the messages out as quickly as possible.

"Your country, My child and My children, will lose a great statesman. You must pray for all of the leaders of the nations of the world, and pray for your country, the United States, and Canada.

"You understand, My child, that there are instruments of destruction now created from the mind of satan, using the fallen nature of mankind to prey upon the weak, and to use them to bring forward missiles of destruction.

"O My child, I realize your debilitated state this evening, but you must understand, My child, that for the great graces extended to you, much is expected of you, and you will suffer much, My child, even in the future.

"You will now take three photographs, but they must be kept secret. I must caution you again, My child, for I realize that it is difficult for you to keep a secret, but not one word must be spoken of these photographs, My child. We trust you."


Veronica—The sky is turning pink all about the bushes. And high up in the sky there is an opening, which is starting about the size of a dime—that's the only way I can explain it—and it's opening up now, and it's a brilliant white light coming from like a pinpoint in the center of the circle. It's circular. And now it's opening up and covering just about all of the sky up above Our Lady's statue.

Now coming through the center of the circle is Jesus. He's alone now; I don't see Our Lady. And He's coming forward. He has on His burgundy cape and His gown which He had on before. But I don't believe I did mention that His gown is a beige color. It's not a white like Our Lady's but a beige color, and like, almost like—I saw material similar to it before, but it's like—oh, I don't know; I just can't explain it.

Well, anyway—oh, Jesus is now—is hastening like this with His hand—oh, He's now taking His hand out, like this, and making the sign of the cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Jesus is looking over to the right and to the left, and He's smiling. He seems to be very pleased. Oh, He's smiling. Now Jesus is coming forward, He's floating forward. He's just above Our Lady's statue, and He's placing now His first finger to His lips.


Jesus—"My child, I will not enlarge upon My Mother's counsel to you this evening. However, I must repeat this: that your country and the nations of the world are in dire distress and in danger of a giant, terrible crisis—a giant destruction upon you and all mankind. I say this in comparison to size. I use the word 'giant' for one reason: that others who have heard My counsel and did not listen—perhaps could not understand My wording—therefore, I say, like a giant walking among mankind, there shall be this conflagration.

"Many parents shall weep tears of great sorrow at the loss of their sons. I have warned you that you were fast approaching a War of giant proportions, My children. And I warn you again that unless there is restitution made for the sins of mankind to the Eternal Father, We will not—We will not turn Our backs, but We will not stop the advance of country upon country and nation upon nation, until the whole world shall be engrossed in a major World War.

"O My children, you have deafened your ears, deadened your hearts. You are like bodies, living bodies in dead souls. O My children, how many words must go out to you from seers throughout countless nations in the world before you will listen?


"I repeat what My Mother has said to you: a statesman will be removed from among you. And then what will happen?

"My child, you will continue to hasten the sending out, the dispersal of the Message throughout the world. Do not slacken in your pace, because there is little time left.

"The world must now give itself over to penance, great penance. But this penance shall go much farther than We would have wished to see upon Our children. That is why, My child, you were called here this evening. I know of your weakened condition, but it was necessary that you warn the world now that there is little time left.

"My children, We have in Heaven beauties beyond all human knowledge. We have in Heaven the ultimate joy and the ultimate expectation of anything man could conceive in his human mind. Are you going to cast this all aside for a few short years upon earth? Is this worth casting aside for? Think, My children, before it is too late. Many of you who hear My words will not be ready. I say, not be ready! Unless you protect yourselves by a constant vigilance of prayer, you will not be ready when you are called unexpectedly. Many shall be removed from the earth very soon, and many will not be ready.

"My child and My children, you cannot, and I shall not burden your minds with the manner in which Heaven deems it necessary to allow the world to continue.

"You understand, My child and My children, that no one, no one will fall into hell, unless it is of his own free will. I assure you, also, that no one will go to hell unless they lead themselves there, and have preferred the pleasures of this world, your earth, and not counting their blessings on the road to Heaven, but following all the pleasures that lead to damnation in this world, your earth.

"Remember, My children, love is the outstanding word being used in your world today, but so few know the true meaning of love. So few have practiced the true meaning of love, for much of this in your world, My children, is based on self-love.


"You will all continue a constant vigilance of prayer: bead to bead, Rosary to Rosary going throughout the world, nation to nation. And with the cooperation of all good souls, there is still time—although very little time is left—there is still time to hold back the destruction.

"My child and My children, because We love you, and My Mother loves you, We do not wish to see you destroyed. We do not wish to see you lose your chance to enter Heaven. Heaven was made for all mankind, but only if they follow the road, the simple road, the narrow road. It's only when you become engrossed in the world's pleasures and seeking treasures that are not the type or the kind that will take you to Heaven but take you on the road to damnation, then you have lost the way.

"Come, My children, follow Me, for I love you, My Father loves you, and I am your God, in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. I always was, I am, and I always will be.

"My child and My children, continue now with your vigil of prayer. You cannot know the value you have for the salvation of your brothers and sisters."

Veronica—Now Jesus is taking His hand—He's moving over now to the left side of the trees, and He's looking over, 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—oh, Our Lady is coming down now. Oh, Our Lady is coming down from high in the sky. I didn't see Her; She was beyond the treetops. And She has still on that beautiful gold Fatima crown. And Our Lady has Her hands together, like this, with the Rosary draped on Her fingers. And She's coming now and moving around to Jesus' right side. And—oh, Jesus is giving Her such a warm, beautiful smile, and Our Lady is looking up at Him.

Now Our Lady is taking Her Rosary, Her specially graced Rosary, and with the 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 Jesus is moving to His left side, which is our right side, and He's just over Our Lady's statue now, and He's extending His hand out, like this, with—and Our Lady now is joining Him at the same time. I never saw Our Lady do that before. Now She's extending Her crucifix out, as Jesus extends His hands, and They're making the sign of the cross and going high above Their heads with Their fingers, too: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost—like They were marking the very place here. The crucifix that Our Lady used has left an impression in the sky, of a cross in the sky, right over Our Lady's statue.

Now Jesus is going far over to our right side, which is His left side, and He's now extending His hand out, like this, and 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 following Him. She's right behind Him. Now She's caught up with Him there, and She's extending Her Rosary out with the golden crucifix. It's a very large 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.

Now Jesus is turning. And it's quite windy because the wind is catching His skirts, and also Our Lady's. And They're coming across the sky, like, you know—They don't walk, They float; They're carried like They're weightless across the sky. Yet Jesus and Our Lady look just as solid as you and I. But yet They seem to be weightless when They go across the sky.

Now They are both above Our Lady's statue. Oh, They look so beautiful. The light is very brilliant, and I can see Their faces very clearly now, though I don't see any hair. I have never seen Our Lady's hair. Oh!

Now Jesus is touching His lips.

Jesus—"My child, you will listen to what My Mother has to say, but you must not repeat it."


Veronica—Now Jesus and Our Lady are moving back into the sky, but They're not moving out of range so we can see Them. Our Lady is touching Her lips.

Our Lady—"My child, I am not leaving; I will be here the rest of the evening, and I will be here always."

Veronica—And Jesus is also standing off to the right. They've taken now—Our Lady is on the left side by the trees and Jesus is over on the right. Oh, and They're looking about Them.

Now the pink glow that's coming out of the trees and the blue signal lights seem to be fading back into the sky, like this. And I notice now Jesus is moving up and Our Lady is moving up. Now They are just above the trees on either side. Now They're coming together across the sky, and They're standing together looking down.

Our Lady—"My child, you will take three more photographs and repair home."
