October 5, 1994
On Wednesday, October 5, 1994 at 7:03 p.m., Our Lady appeared to
Veronica in her home and was bathed in a great, white light. Our Lady
was wearing a white gown with a blue cape, and had on white slippers
with a gold band around Her insteps.
Present in the vision was also the Eternal Father, though His
countenance was blurred, as if in a mist.
Our Lady said the following:
"Listen well, Veronica: The world's existence is in jeopardy. Unless
there is a change for better in the souls of many, We, the Eternal
Father and the Saints, shall be allowed to send upon mankind--"
The Eternal Father suddenly came forth from the obscurity and broke in
with the following:
"Devastation such as has never been seen nor felt since the creation of
mankind.† The beginning of life
upon the earth shall be the end for many. Prayer, atonement, sacrifice!
You shall not receive another warning. Time is running out. Are you
When the Eternal Father emerged, He appeared to Veronica as very old
looking with white hair and a white beard. He had al long gown with gold
(Veronica was instructed by Heaven to place a cross
† after the word
"mankind" and to underline "you." The cross denotes the suffering that will
envelop the world.)
It is significant to note the manner in which this message was given.
For even though the Eternal Father has manifested Himself and spoken to
Veronica in the past, He has never come forth in such an abrupt manner
so as to interrupt the course of Our Lady's message. This indeed is
significant, as it alludes to the manner in which the Eternal Father is
now about to come forth from His throne and deal directly with mankind.
The days ahead paint an especially bleak picture for the children, as
the Eternal Father points out, "The beginning of life upon the earth
shall be the end for many." As Veronica understands it, the young will
be born into (or brought up in) a scenario of death and misery that will
claim many of them before they ever have a chance to grow up.
The delivery of this message was outstanding in still another way not
mentioned. For after Veronica had written down the message as it was
given to her, she was speaking to Michael Mangan on the telephone
concerning the message when she suddenly discovered that there were some
words scribed in the margin that she had not written.
"Someone" had written the words "be allowed to" with a line leading to
the word "shall" in the second sentence, indicating an insertion.
Veronica emphatically stated to Mr. Mangan that she did not write those
words in the margin.
Veronica's understanding is that an angel or some personage from Heaven
was sent to handwrite these words on the sheet of paper she used to
record the message. No doubt, Heaven was resorting to this extraordinary
means of communication in order to draw our attention to this element of
This was apparently done to show forth the conditionality of Heaven's
message, and the manner in which we "allow" God to take action against
The prophecies from Heaven are entirely contingent on the response of
man. The length, timing, severity, or even occurrence of the coming
chastisement is totally dependent on man's response; precisely the
reason for these messages from Heaven.
Thus, on a more hopeful and encouraging note, a full restoration to
godliness and traditional values in all spheres of life would stay God's
holy wrath. The biblical story of the prophet Jonas and the city of
Ninive would illustrate God's endless mercy and the age-old remedy of
prayer and penance.
The world is now given the only course for a reprieve: "Prayer,
