St. Michael Celebration Weekend PHOTO REPORT

September 26-27, 2015
Our Lady of the Roses Shrine


On Saturday, September 26, 175 devotees participated in a procession and Vigil at the sacred grounds in honor of St. Michael, our glorious patron and guardian.


"The men have been asked to wear a white hat with the emblem stating 'Saint Michael' imprinted upon it."

Jesus, June 4, 1977

"A religious foundation must be given to all of the children, the young of the world. Without this foundation of religion, paganism takes over, and soon you will see a major increase in murders and all form of abominations."

Our Lady, Nov. 24, 1979

"Jesus sends His emissary down to strengthen you in the battle. Michael will stand beside all who call; for he is the leader, the warrior chosen by God for His army."

Our Lady, Dec. 31, 1970


"And the great issue now of homosexuality in your country, that shall be on the balance that Michael holds. Unless this balance is evened by removing this evil from your country and bringing in just laws to prevent the spread of homosexuality, you cannot be saved. Your country cannot be saved."

Jesus, Nov. 1, 1985

Rosary Vigil

"You pastors who have rejected Michael as the guardian of the Faith and My Son's House, you must return him in prayer and visual sight, his monuments, his statues to My Son's House, Church."

Our Lady, June 18, 1976

"My children, you must use the Exorcism of Saint Michael constantly, daily in your lives, for those who knock upon your door now may be evil."

Our Lady, Oct. 6, 1977


"Your homes are protected by a supernatural being, with Saint Michael, the head of the armies from Heaven."

Our Lady, July 1, 1985


"Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth! How many warnings shall go out to mankind before he acknowledges his sin and does penance for His God, a God most merciful and just, Whose heart is torn asunder by an ungrateful generation which has given itself to all manner of depravity and defilement of his soul!"

St. Michael, Dec. 27, 1975


"You are not alone, My child. As the battle accelerates, you will find many companionable spirits. The joy of unity will be among you."

Dear Michael and Lay Order

      It was a well-deserved, inspiring weekend for our glorious patron, St. Michael the Archangel, who was duly honored.
      Here's my tax-deductible gift which is truly needed to help cover the considerable expenses of this important and worthwhile event; and for upcoming Vigils, too.
      Thank you in advance.
