Disciples in Action


On Thursday, May 4, 2006, dozens of Bayside devotees protested the blasphemous play, "Mary, Like a Virgin" in New York City. We joined other Catholic groups in praying the Rosary in reparation for this demonic attack against the Mother of God.  


The play was held at Dillon's Lounge in New York City. Two sentences from a review says all you need to know: "The spangly blue and white robes of her 'Salvation Armani dress' plunge to showcase her bosom and are cut high at the thigh to reveal shapely gams; she belts popular song parodies, quaffs from a sacramental cup in between wry jokes and stores half-eaten snacks in a basket holding Jesus' childhood artwork. This is the Virgin Mary - brought to you by drag artist 'Mimi Imfurst' Braden Chapman for a lounge act 'confession.'"


We peacefully protested just 20 feet from Dillon's Lounge. We prayed the Rosary, litanies, and sung traditional hymns for two and a half hours.


The Society of St. Pius X organized the protest. Their priest gives a pep talk to the crowd which numbered about 350.

One reviewer even admitted that the play was "blasphemy"


At the end of the protest, the priests give their final blessing.

The Virgin Mary appears in America

This beautiful story of grace, peace and redemption opened publicly on June 18, 1970 when the Mother of God visited Veronica Lueken on the grounds of the old St. Robert Bellarmine Church in Bayside, New York and later at the Vatican Pavilion site (blessed by Pope Paul VI) in Flushing Meadows Park, New York. Beginning in 1968, St. Theresa the Little Flower prepared Veronica for these Heavenly apparitions.

For 25 years, the Virgin Mary and Her Divine Son would appear to this mother of five children during Rosary Vigils on these sacred grounds until her passing in 1995. Our Lady asked that this Shrine be called “Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers” and that a Sunday Holy Hour offered for the Pope and priests be held.

Over 300 comprehensive messages packed with wisdom and guidance for these latter days were transmitted through this seer named by Heaven, Veronica of the Cross.

Our Lady of the Roses Shrine is under the stewardship of the lay Order of St. Michael (est. 1977), a vibrant community of dedicated, celibate men who have been appointed by Heaven to lead this global mission. Our Lady has prophesied that this lay Order will bring forth the full-fledged religious Order of St. Michael, an order founded on tradition, which will also include a cloistered convent.

Our Lady has also stated that curative waters will erupt and a magnificent basilica will be erected at the original site of St. Robert’s.

The Vigils and Holy Hours continue to this day at the Vatican Pavilion inspired by Our Lord’s promise: “We have made Our home upon these grounds.” Cures and conversions abound and for countless pilgrims, faith and hope have been restored. We invite you to join us.
