Look for the St Michael's World Apostolate banner when you come

"Many souls that would otherwise fall into hell and eternal damnation have been saved because of the thousands of prayers that have been rising to Heaven for their salvation. Only, My children, in the time of your great reward in Heaven will you understand fully how great was your mission upon earth."

Jesus, Oct. 6, 1976

Madeline Colon of College Point, N.Y.

Michael Mangan, President of SMWA, giving a welcome address to about 200 pilgrims that attended the Vigil.


"My children, I have come to you under many names in the past, but I want you to acknowledge Me as the Mother of Grace. Because that is why I come to you now, My children: to give you the graces necessary to remain upon earth in a state of purity and perseverance."

Our Lady, Sept. 14, 1985

of St. Paul.

Not Worthy

As the rain began to fall, we received the blessing from Jesus and Mary

The Baptism: The devotees endured the torrential rains (holy water) for a short time during the Vigil.

Pilgrims bring roses to adorn the Shrine.  Our Lady's Shrine helpers distribute them to everyone later in the evening. These roses are blessed by Jesus and Our Lady during the Rosary Vigil and have the power of cure and conversion. For a free Rose Petal click here.

Marion Morris, Stamford, Conn. Organizer
Mary and Marisa Consoli sang Fatima Ave, O Salutaris and O Most Holy One

Fr. Bradley gives the final blessing at the end of the Vigil


To conclude the vigil, all the pilgrims raise candles to herald the 13th Anniversary of Veronica of the Cross, repeating the words:

Mary, Light of the World, pray for us
Our Lady of the Roses, pray for us
Mary, Help of Mothers, pray for us


After the Vigil, pilgrims line up to venerate the crucifix of the Rosary kissed by Our Lady on October 29, 1994.


The pilgrims also had the special privilege of venerating the reliquary which contains a piece of the crucifix that Veronica of the Cross would clutch during her ecstasy and that the Blessed Mother would kiss every Vigil.
