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

Veronica passes test of obedience

May 7, 1975

Eve of the Ascension of Our Lord

Miraculous photo warning Veronica not to go to Vigil that evening

[Veronica was warned through a photograph not to attend the vigil that evening, as there was a plan to have her shot. Therefore, she remained at home. A large, noisy mob had been assembled at the sacred grounds in an attempt to disrupt the vigil. Many stout-hearted pilgrims, however, remained the whole evening to pray with great fervor. The Shrine has a tape recording of some of the shouting and disruptive tactics of the crowd that evening. The sky that night was bright with a pink-colored glow.]

Jesus appeared to Veronica in her apartment and gave her the following message:


Jesus--"You must understand, My child, that there is a test for obedience in the plan from Heaven. My Mother is standing as guardian over Her flowers, My child. As a voice-box for Heaven your obedience is often tested, My child. It is well that you did not disregard the message in photograph given to you this evening.

"You must understand, My child, that We are fully aware of the plan of satan. We can direct you sometimes in photographs. We ask you to read them and study them well, in the past and in the future. We can give you this direction, My child, but you must not act of your own free will, but you will pray and read the photographs.

"We chose that you remain, for your work must not be finished by violence.

"You ask, My child, an explanation. This will not be given to you, for there are many things of the plan of the Father that you in your human nature would be unable to understand. Have no fear. My Mother stands as guardian over Her garden of souls.

"I have allowed this test and trial, My child, for there will be a time soon when those who have given themselves as followers of the light from Heaven, they must accept responsibility and leadership, working with great haste for the establishment of a center of atonement.

"My Mother will always be there for those who come seeking Her."

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.
