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

"We have chosen these grounds with purpose. We expect to retrieve . . . many souls that otherwise would have been lost to Us."

July 15, 1973

Eve of Our Lady of Mount Carmel

Our Lady--"You are much concerned of your past week. We shower you with many graces; however, this does not mean that you will be free from the attacks of satan. I must caution you these attacks will come double.

"The road to sanctification is not an easy road. We expect all to fall and tumble, but you will pick yourselves up and continue to carry your crosses.

"We find it necessary at this time to uniform all Mary workers, to unify them. The greatest advantage satan has is when he can divide. All Mary workers must unite for the common cause. Spiritual jealousy and disunity accomplishes nothing."

Veronica--Oh, there are the most beautiful blue lights forming around the outside of the trees. Our Lady gives this as Her sign for entrance. There's a very large cloud floating from the tree. It's coming out now over to the flagpole. The cloud is parting now in the center, and I can see far, far into the heavens. It's like floating far out into space. It's--oh, it's beautiful! The sky is a very clear blue. And we seem to be going farther out into space. Oh, there are many stars, very brilliant stars.

But now I see the stars, and there's a, an orange and red glow coming across the sky. Oh, it's cutting across the sky. Oh, it's very, very large. I can see that ball again. Oh, it's very, very large. Oh, it's traveling at a very fast speed. Now it's going across the sun. These, the vapors are covering a greater part of the sun, and they're so heavy that it seems to make the world outside dark.

Now the ball is turning around. It's made a complete revolution. And now it's starting to go back out into space. And--no, now something's happened. Something's happened; it's coming around again, and I, I see it. It's very close to the earth. I recognize the earth. Oh, the earth looks very light, sort of a white color from where I'm watching it. Now this ball is starting to circle. The tail now is cutting across--oh, it's cutting across a good section of the earth, on the right side of the globe as I'm watching it.

BLACKENED EARTH

Now everything's clearing. The vapors seem to be clearing away. And on top of the globe there's a large cross--just a plain cross; it has no corpus on it. A very large cross. The ball looks like the earth. Now I see the ball is starting to turn. It's like it's on an--oh, I don't . . . an axis. And as it's turning, I see this cross starting to evaporate until it's, it's like disappearing like smoke from on top of the world.

And I see now about three-quarters of the world has turned dark, almost black. Now underneath, there are letters forming underneath the large globe. The words are: "WHAT IS TO BE": W-H-A-T "IS TO BE." Now there is a hand pointing up, a hand pointing up far above the globe. And now the finger is pointing and starting to write across the sky: "GOD": G-O-D, and a large letter "I," "IS." "GOD IS." Now the hand is pointing way over to the right side of the flagpole by the trees. Now there, it's--the finger of the hand is pointing, and it's starting to write again: "WARNING": W-A-R-N-I-N-G "TO MANKIND SOON": S-O-O-N. Now I see an eagle. There's a very large eagle in the sky; and over the eagle is written: "UNITED STATES," and under the eagle is written: "NEW YORK."

Now Our Lady is appearing. She's coming closer. There is a very large cloud formed over the words and the picture of the eagle. Now the cloud is floating over, and Our Lady now is coming through the cloud. And She's now bending over.

"Yes."

Our Lady says:

Our Lady--"Most of this message must remain secret at this time. Only part may be revealed.

BABYLON THE GREAT

"This is: Babylon the great will fall. Babylon, the master of deceit, will fall. Many good must suffer as martyrs with the bad. Babylon the great will fall! She has raised herself high above her God, and she invokes the vengeance of a just punishment. Ships will look upon her as she burns. Woefully they will shield their eyes from the sight. Babylon the great, the harlot upon nations, the harlot among nations, will fall. Babylon the great, who has led many astray, will fall.

"There are many who walk upon earth, many who are false prophets. You will recognize them by their fruits. Many propound false doctrine--fallacy created by the father of all liars, Lucifer, the prince of darkness. Lucifer and his agents have spread their errors throughout the world.

"Michael must be returned to the House of God, for a House that is in darkness will fall. The foundation is firm, but man and his creation will fall!

"Man has called himself great; man has sought to go beyond his Creator. In this manner is he bringing about, bringing upon him his own destruction.

"Parents share a major responsibility for the fall of their children's souls. We look into homes, homes that have become hovels of abomination. Judge not by the richness and materialism of these homes, but the destruction of the souls of the children within these homes. Parents, what example have you given to your children, with your permissiveness and your following the modes of the world?

"My child, Veronica, the Mission for Heaven carries a heavy cross. When We chose you for this mission, We did this knowing that We had your love and confidence. You will not be free from trial and suffering. We did not promise you gain in this world, for the graces stored in Heaven will be used for the recovery of souls close to you and others who accept the word of God.

"Satan roams throughout your world. He uses every means gained through knowledge of the Father. You will not be approached by him in his true likeness, for he will use the means of persons, places, and things to lead you astray. A soul that falls into the web of satan must not lose hope, for he can be recovered. Believe and you will be given the way.

FIVE MAJOR ADVERSARIES

"There is now upon your earth the legions of hell; five major adversaries of the abyss roam your world. There will be accidents that are not accidents, sudden deaths that are not in the plan of the Father.

"Children grow more disobedient and arrogant to parents. Man has lost the true meaning of love and charity of neighbor.

"I counsel you all to take your Book of life, Bible, and become knowledgeable of these latter days. The plan for the days ahead is covered quite thoroughly in this Book of life.

"Man would find his way to the Kingdom if he would cast aside the soul destroyers that he now has in his home, which destroy not only his soul but the souls of innocent children. For the love of money, these soul destroyers flood your earth.

"The time will come, without your prayers and actions, when you will no longer recognize sin as sin. You will become accustomed to sin as a way of life. The numbers to be saved in the final count will be in the few.

BEGINNING OF SORROWS

"I come to earth from Heaven. I have roamed your world in tears. It truly now rains teardrops from Heaven. With the coming of the Warning to mankind, pray and pray much, for it is the beginning of the terrible sorrows.

"Men of science are ever seeking, but failing and falling far short of the truth.

"You will keep the monuments, statues, in your homes and in the House of God.

"My Son asks that you all comfort Him in His tabernacles throughout the world. He grows lonely. So many graces are never accepted.

"Satan sows throughout the world fear and confusion. You will save yourselves and those you love in the Sacred Heart of My Son.

"You, My child, Veronica, must learn to live each day as it comes. For worry is the weakness of all humans, but it is not constructive to the mission. Trust and confidence in the direction of the Father is all that you need to stabilize you in your work.

"We have been gathering the prayers and sacrifices of the many who have come to these hallowed grounds. It lightens My heart and eases the sorrow brought to many through My Son.

"As you live the remaining time upon earth of your lifetime on earth, you will guard your souls with all the sacramentals given for your protection. To those who are in darkness, you will be an object of scorn, derision, and scoffing. Know that none can be above My Son, for they will follow the road to the Kingdom just as My Son did. Prayer, atonement, sacrifice. Many will return with the phenomenon My Son plans soon."

Veronica--In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

Our Lady is now--well, She's not walking, She's floating up onto this large ball; and the ball is floating over now to the right side of the flagpole. Now Our Lady is looking down. Her voice is very low; I can barely hear Her.

Our Lady--"My child, I am not leaving the sacred grounds. I am just looking over the surface of your world. I am looking for the candles. Daily We hope to see more candles added."

FLOODS

Veronica--I see water. The water is running between a valley. There are hills at either side, hills, but they're not mountains. The water is rising very high. There's going to be floods. Floods! Floods! Many lives will be lost, many lives. Floods . . . heavy rain . . . the closer the disturbance of the atmosphere. Many will die in the floods. The absence of clear drinking water will bring about a disease of the intestinal tract. Many waters will become contaminated.

Our Lady--"The murder of the unborn promoted in your city of evil has been watched by the Father with great anger. The unjust in your city and state will be dealt with severely. Pray a constant vigilance of prayer for them. Many will enter into hell, claimed by Lucifer, without the time to repent and make amends to their much offended God.

"Never cease your prayers, My children. If I could open your eyes to your future, you would run fast from your worldly pursuits and retire within a life of prayer as victim souls to the Father, victims to His merciful love, victims for the salvation of all souls.

"Woe, I say to you now: many will die in the great flame of the Ball of the Redemption. The Ball nears. Many will die in the great flame of the Ball of Redemption!

"[You], My child, will not leave your home without the Shrine cross in your protection."

Veronica--Michael is now coming forward. He's over the flagpole. He's so large! He's now standing with his wings spread over the . . . very high in the sky now. I've never seen Michael opening his wings . . . so large; it's beautiful! Oh, it's beautiful! Oh!

Our Lady--"Do not slacken or slow down the steady pace of the work in your mission. Should the worker be laid low, he will be gifted with many graces by the Father.

"You will not concern yourself, My child, of the opinion of man. Your mission is to give the message as a voice-box of Heaven. When this is done, you will pray and leave the rest to the Father. Souls can be converted by prayer and example. Speak once and if not hastened, speak no more, but pray. We do not condone evil, but you must keep in heart that it is not always their decision. Speak once and if not hastened, speak no more."

[Pause]

Veronica--Please kneel, because Jesus is going to bless all the sacramentals.

Now Jesus has waited quite a while. Jesus said there was quite a dispute over the photographs. However, you must be most cautious in the photographs given in the days ahead. They will be reproduced only by--I guess He means me; and then the others will be sent out. Satan will work very hard to destroy the proof of His work here.

Now Jesus is coming over to the right side of the flagpole. He has on a beige-colored robe, and it's very beautiful. It has gold trim all around the outside. And He has on a--oh, a cream-colored gown, and brown--they look like leather slippers. And He's barefooted; I can see His feet in the slippers.

And now He's taken the cape from His head--there was a cape on His head, from the robe--and now Jesus is placing His hands out. Oh, I can see the wounds on His hands. Now He's raising His hand above His head. Jesus says:

Jesus--"You will extend all sacramentals, all objects of God, your beads of prayer, your medals, your cards, and anything of godly nature. They do not have to be removed from your person."

Veronica--Now Jesus is raising His hand high above His head, and He's blessing in a triangle, the sign of the Trinity: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Our Lady is standing next to Jesus, on His right side. And She has this large Rosary. Now the Rosary is--oh, the beads are white with gold. And Our Lady said:

Our Lady--"Will the people please do honor to your God and stop your chattering, because in the presence of Jesus you must show due respect. Too much disrespect is already being condoned in the House of God."

Veronica--Now Jesus looked down and He smiled very, very quietly, sadly. And He's raising His hand again, and He said to me:

Jesus--"Proceed, My child."

Veronica--In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Jesus is going over to the right side of the flagpole. Oh, now He's looking over and raising His hand now over His head: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Our Lady is extending Her Rosary. The Rosary has a very large golden cross. And She's extending it like this, and She's blessing now everyone--oh, in the sign of the cross, like this: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. And Our Lady's looking over to this direction: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Our Lady's going, She's floating over by Jesus and Michael. And there's--oh, two very, very huge angels. I know there's Gabriel, and the other I don't recognize. It's not Raphael, but he's very, very huge. Now he's coming down, and Jesus is coming now midway; He's coming very close to the ground. Oh, He's right in the center of the flagpole. I never saw Jesus standing so low. And He's looking down now, and He's blessing now. He's reaching over and He's making the sign of the Trinity: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Now Jesus is rising--oh, He just is floating very--up, up, and Our Lady also; and They're coming over to the right side of the flagpole and looking down. Now Jesus is saying:

RETRIEVE SOULS

Jesus--"I have given you your final warning. You will follow the direction of My Mother, or you will fall into line with the forces of evil. We have chosen these grounds with purpose. We expect to retrieve, from your heart and effort, many souls that otherwise would have been lost to Us. All prayers and acts of atonement will be used for the repatriation of wandering sheep.

"The shepherds, Our representatives in your world, will lead their sheep with firm discipline and faith--faith in the light. They will remove all destructive minims of modernism and humanism from their teaching. Suffering is purification. The world is filled with soul destructors. Discard, cast off these evil trappings and clothe yourself in sackcloth. Go forth through the world as pilgrims so that you may return eventually to the Kingdom from whence you came."

Veronica--Now Jesus is coming over to the left side of the flagpole, and He's raising His hand very high.

Jesus--"I bless you . . ."

Veronica--And He's going like this:

Jesus--" . . . as the Father blesses you: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Trinity. God is, God was, and God always will be. But first and above all, GOD IS!"

Veronica--And now written in the sky are the words: "GOD IS." G-O-D with large letters of "IS." Now it's growing very, very dark. I can't see Our Lady. She seems to be just going backwards. There's a large cloud now that is floating over, and Our Lady is standing almost behind the cloud. And Our Lady said:

Our Lady--"I never leave the sacred grounds. I am always here waiting for you. Come to Me all you who are burdened with sorrow. I will dry your tears and comfort you and give you all the graces necessary for your salvation."

Veronica--Now there's a tremendous white light. Oh, it's so brilliant! And Our Lady is standing now in the light. And around Her head is this crown of stars. It's very beautiful. Our Lady looks very beautiful. She's all in white. And--oh, Her slippers are white, but they have what appears to be golden roses right on the tips. And She has a gold belted rope about Her waist. And now She's taking Her large Rosary and She's winding it around the rope at the waist. And now it's hanging down from the golden rope about Her waist. Oh, and now it's growing very dark. And Our Lady now has raised Her hand, and She's saying:

Our Lady--"Continue, My children, with your prayers of atonement. Many souls must be saved."

Veronica--In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

 

Prophecy is conditional, but . . . | The Messages from Heaven | Home

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 Catholic tradition.

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.
