#384 - Our Lady of the Roses Shrine, Part 1
"Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided." - Memorare prayer
FIRST VIGIL OF JUNE 18, 1970: NO PRIEST LISTENED
Our Blessed Mother would not appear to us, because Her requests and directives, which were given to Veronica in preparation for Her coming, had been ignored by those to whom Veronica made Our Lady's requests known, by name and specification. If only one, just one request had been heeded . . . but no one listened!
Veronica served only as the messenger and the intermediary of Our Lady's messages, in childlike obedience to Our Lady's will. - Roses Notes from Veronica, June 18, 1970
MANY GRACES WILL BE GIVEN
"Upon these sacred grounds will be given many graces: graces needed for the recovery of straying souls, graces in abundance for the asking, graces for cures and conversions. Come to Me, mothers who weep for their errant children, and I will comfort you. I will show you the road for their recovery." - Our Lady, March 25, 1973
DISPERSE MESSAGE THROUGHOUT WORLD
"I will be with you always on these sacred grounds. Though I have asked for dates for special vigils, this does not mean that the grounds will not be open in perpetuity.
"All who come here will be solaced and nourished with graces to prevent the infiltration of satan upon their human souls, so that they will be able to withstand the pressures of satan in their lifetime upon earth and return in glorious triumph to the Kingdom.
"You have been placed as children of God upon earth, as champions of Heaven. We are saddened when one is captured by satan. We are joyful, and there is great joy in Heaven among the angels and the Father when you are able to take back from satan just one child for Us. So, My children, go forth with great hope and spirit and rescue your brothers and sisters. Disperse throughout the world in great haste My words from these sacred grounds." - Our Lady, March 25, 1973
AN OASIS IN A BARREN LAND
"My Shrine here will be an oasis in your barren land. Many graces will be given from Our hearts, My children, to you. We will never abandon you in the darkness." - Our Lady, August 21, 1971
"Pray, My children, a constant vigilance of prayer, both public and private. No fence can reach high enough to shut out the spirit. I promise, My children, to be here on the sacred grounds with you. These grounds have been deemed by the Eternal Father to be a center of atonement, an oasis in a barren land." - Our Lady, December 31, 1974
CURES AND CONVERSIONS
"Cures and conversions will come about as I have promised, to propagate the work and the mission on earth of raising in your country the Shrine. However, My children, you also must follow the direction of the prophets of old. We have given many graces to physicians on your earth. Seek their counsel, too. And then come to Us, and in the will of the Father We will cure you. This cure, if not given physically, I assure you, My children, will be given to you spiritually." - Our Lady, December 30, 1972
"THE SHRINE IS AT ST. ROBERT'S"
Veronica - Well, that evening on May the 19th  was when Our Lady started talking to me with directives about Her coming. Well, it was a long list of circumstances or quite a long story involved with Our Lady's coming and how She set up the plan which I have tried to give on the taping at various times. But anyways, that evening, many people have asked me, well who was this apostle or Saint, this nice looking man who was with Our Lady when She was on the ball? Well that evening, when Our Lady was talking to me, giving me directions to give to St. Roberts, I asked Her who this nice looking young man was and She said, "St. Aloysius!" That's the way it was pronounced, Aloysius. So I had never heard of a St. Aloysius, so I woke my husband up--this was quite late in the evening, it was about 12 o'clock I guess, midnight--and I asked Art if he had ever heard of a St. Aloysius. So he said, well no, but we have a saints book and we would look it up. So I went all through the "A's" and finally I found the one, it said, "Aloysius ... Aloie" it looked like in the book Gonz--Gonzagner or something like that. Well, we started reading about Aloysius' life and ohh!! Were we surprised! Because on reading his life, it stated in the same book that the father confessor and the teacher of St. Aloysius, the one who taught him everything he knew and they fought heresy and tried to keep true doctrines of the Church intact, was St. Robert Bellarmine! That is the name of my church!
Veronica--Well that evening and on towards--that was May the 19th--and on through the latter part of May and into June, Our Lady gave me many directives to give to the Fathers at St. Robert's, which I did by telephone, and by writing letters to them. And, well, actually, being human, the good Fathers just couldn't really ... [words unclear] into a story like they said. Now, they had to have proof. Naturally, I guess, since the history of the Church, I mean the Church has been in existence a long time, and I do imagine there are many souls that have come that weren't quite, let's say, on the up and up, and came with stories and hallucinations. So by now they are very cagey about acknowledging anything supernatural. So, I accepted the letdown, I naturally in my exuberance I expected them to really be overjoyed and the spirit would catch on of Our Lady's coming. Not realizing that it wasn't happening to them but to me, and that seemed outside the light of grace temporarily, that they couldn't understand.
Veronica--Well, we have all the arrangements, oh the days became so exciting waiting for the 18th. Oh, I didn't explain to you, I was quite surprised that Our Lady picked the date "18th". In fact when I asked Our Lady what day She was going to come to New York, when the roses bloomed, She said, "June the 18th." Well, I was quite surprised. I wondered why not July, August, or September. Well, right now I was surprised because it was through talking to Joseph Lomangino, by telephone, that he asked me one time when I told him that Our Lady said She would come on June the 18th. He says, "Well, do you know what June the 18th is?" And I says, "No." And he says, "Well, that's the anniversary date of Our Lady's arrival at Garabandal in Spain." Well, gee, I was just as shocked to hear that but I wondered why Our Lady had picked the 18th here in New York. Well, Heaven has its reasons which we will find out in the future.
Veronica--And then at this time Our Lady gave me messages also for Joseph Lomangino and about, Our Lady had said, which I didn't understand, but I just passed it on, to tell Joseph to "gather the lilacs from the bush and bring them to the Shrine." Well, I told Joseph this by telephone, and I was so happy, because I knew that he--at that time, he did believe me, and it was kind of, being worldly still, I haven't lost enough of my own feelings that I could stand alone, and it was wonderful to know that there was someone who believed me. And I thought that Joseph did, until some time later, but I think someone had really come to him and kind of talked him out of believing in me, I don't understand that, but of course, that's also one of the crosses that I've learned to live with. But anyway, Our Lady did give that message for him to me, to give to him, "gather the lilacs from the bush and bring them to the Shrine." For when I told Joseph, three days later, I think it was, I called him up again, and I asked him if he knew what Our Lady meant by that, gather the lilacs from the bush. And also, where was the Shrine? Well, he didn't seem to know, so that evening--I was quite depressed--and when Our Lady was talking to me I asked, "Dear Mother, where is the Shrine? I don't understand." And Our Lady said, "The Shrine is at St. Robert's." And I said, "Oh no, I don't know of any Shrine at St. Robert's." And Our Lady said, "Oh yes, there will be!" And then that is the time that Our Lady gave me the drawing for the Fathers and also have a copy in my notes, Our Lady says the Shrine will be called Our Lady of the Roses, Mary, Help of Mothers. And Our Lady drew, had me draw this picture, it looks like a round oval type of concrete background for a statue. And Our Lady said, "There are to be gold letters saying 'Our Lady of the Roses,'" and it appears to be a statue of Our Lady's holding a Rosary in each hand, it's very pretty looking and then at the side is another plaque and it says, "Mary Help of Mothers." - Early Years, Events of May 1970
SHRINE OF PURITY
"Many of you will find in the future that your sacramentals will be a great source of comfort and true source of manifestation for your God and the development of My Mother's Mission here in your Shrine of purity." - Jesus, October 6, 1972
GRACES TO RESCUE SOULS
"I am the Queen of Heaven, Mother of earth, Mediatrix of all graces. I come to you with graces in abundance, graces for the asking. I will dispense to all those who join Me in rescuing their brothers, many graces--manifestations by means of conversion and cure. I place upon these consecrated, sacred grounds the graces to rescue souls in these dark days." - Our Lady, November 20, 1972
OUR LADY OF THE ROSES BASILICA
"You must understand that My basilica will also cover the ground that you are now upon. Therefore, My child, you are not outside My Shrine.
"I know, My child, that this has all given you a great puzzlement, but you will go as the Father directs. He has a plan for bringing about the building of this Shrine.
"My basilica, My child, will be built on a firm foundation of faith. Tradition cannot be placed aside from faith. Together they are the foundation." - Our Lady, December 7, 1974
BASILICA SHALL BE BUILD ON THE SACRED GROUNDS
"There will be established in your country a refuge, a sanctuary. You will be guided, My child and My children, to this sanctuary. The basilica shall be built on the sacred grounds. Patience and fortitude will win you your crowns." - Our Lady, December 31, 1974
"I refuse any soul the privilege of being with My Mother unless properly attired. Women will not dress as men in Her presence, nor will women condone the attire during their earthly existence. Can you not sacrifice for Me? Better the abuse of the flesh than the fire to the soul.
"My Mother is much grieved that Her messages are not read with care. Heed the message of September 7, 1970 and Fatima 1917. I will not dispense any longer My graces to arrogant or prideful man that will not listen.
"It will be your duty, My child, to chase these interlopers from My Mother's sacred grounds. I will not gather souls at the expense of My Mother's anguished heart or respect. Please heed this warning!" - Jesus, February 28, 1971
"THIS HALLOWED LAND OF MY SHRINE"
"Many graces will be given from this hallowed land of My Shrine. Your country will go into great darkness, but We will carry the light. Many will light their candles with Me and carry the light. Perseverance, My children! Confidence! We will rescue you; We will not abandon you. You must have perseverance in these trials.
"You must not be apathetic to the situation in your country, My children, for if you sit back you will be removed from your homes in your land. You must organize a solid front--yes, link to link, soul to soul, across your land--a solid Rosary, My children. Prayer and sacrifice: this is not too much to ask of you in face of the reality of what is coming upon you." - Our Lady, November 20, 1971
SUNDAY HOLY HOUR FOR FALLEN HIERARCHY
"I wish that there be held on these sacred grounds an hour of reparation on the Day of the Lord. This hour will be for your Vicar and the fallen hierarchy in the House of God. This hour will also be in atonement for the discard of the holy Day of God. 1 p.m. to 2 p.m." - Our Lady, September 14, 1972
"I SHALL BE HERE"
"I shall be here on My sacred grounds as I have promised, My children. All guidance will be given to you all in the dark days ahead. Do not ride the currents stirred up by satan. Calm these turbulent waters with penance and prayer." - Our Lady, September 28, 1972
MANIFESTATIONS WILL BE GIVEN
"Manifestations will be given to those chosen by the Father to propagate the work of saving souls by the intercession of Mary, the Mother of God, from these sacred grounds, hallowed by Her presence." - St. Theresa, February 1, 1973
"I ask many to make unscheduled vigils here on My sacred grounds. Many prayers are needed for those who have not been given the grace to come here." - Our Lady, March 24, 1973
"THE MEDAL WILL BUILD THE SHRINE"
"I have warned you, there is so much evil that has been loosed upon you. I have warned you many times that the angel of peace has left your land. A constant vigil of prayer must be kept. Satan seeks to disunify My children. His plan is clever--to destroy from within. Have confidence in My Son's ultimate triumph in My inhabitants.
"The medal will build the Shrine, My child.
"I am the Mother of all nations, and My heart covers your glorious land. I do not want to see My children be led slowly to their own destruction. I have chosen this land because of the many loving souls who will reach out to gather the sheep." - Our Lady, November 1, 1970
A SANCTUARY OF PEACE AND SOLACE
"The sacred grounds founded here by the Father shall be a sanctuary of peace and solace to many in the future. Upon these grounds will come forth curative waters. Upon these grounds will be found the evidence of the hand of the Father.
"We will use many voice-boxes and promote manifestations in many lives to strengthen Our armies throughout your world." - Our Lady, March 18, 1973
"We are permitting at this time manifestations and evidence of miracles, more abundant than ever in the past history of your world. This is a means We shall use to fight the armies of satan. I promise, as the Mother of God and Queen of Heaven, to bestow upon all who come to My sacred grounds, powers within their sacramentals for cure and conversion." - Our Lady, March 18, 1973
FORCES OF EVIL GATHERING TO STOP THE GOOD WORK
"The forces of evil are gathering, My child, to stop the good work. You will commend all to the Father in His direction. Should the prayers of atonement be discontinued on these sacred grounds, the Chastisement in earth time will be hastened. Prayer, atonement, sacrifice!" - Our Lady, April 14, 1973
CONSECRATED GROUNDS AN INSTRUMENT OF HEAVEN
"Come to Me, all you who sorrow, and I will join My Son in drying your tears. The Father has placed many graces upon souls who gather on the sacred grounds. These consecrated grounds are an instrument of Heaven. Many conversions and cures will manifest to the world the reality and existence of your God." - Our Lady, May 10, 1973
POWER TO BRING BACK AND RESCUE
"Remember, My child, I bestow upon all who come to My sacred grounds, the power to bring back and rescue from satan their brothers and sisters. You must not forget the power of prayer to the Father. Ask in the name of My Son, and He cannot refuse you.
"Continue, My children, your prayers of atonement."
"You will deliver to the world the Message from Heaven. You will permit no elaboration or additives to My words or any words from Heaven. You must not speak on your own. As Our messenger, you are not opinionated, My child, for you will only act as a voice-box for Heaven." - Our Lady, June 8, 1973
GRACES IN ABUNDANCE FOR THE ASKING
"Come to Me, all you who have sorrow, for I will dry your tears. I come to you with graces in abundance, just for the asking. These graces will give you the strength in the dark days ahead. We place upon these sacred grounds . . . "
Veronica - And Our Lady is now motioning. Oh, She's motioning with Her hand.
Our Lady - " . . . the power for the conversion of your erring children, and the power of cure through the grace of the Father. Come to Me, and you will find solace." - Our Lady, July 1, 1973
"I WILL DRY YOUR TEARS AND COMFORT YOU"
"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." - Our Lady, July 15, 1973
THE FINAL VICTORY
"Full dedication will be made to the Sacred Heart of My Son and the Immaculate Heart endowed to Me by the Father. I place My blue mantle of protection over all My children who come to Me. I have come here, and I will remain here upon these sacred grounds and upon many sacred grounds throughout the world until the final victory." - Our Lady, August 14, 1973
GIVE DUE RESPECT TO THE SACRED GROUNDS
Our Lady - "My child, you will now direct those about you to stop their disruption and give due respect to the nature of the sacred grounds."
Veronica - I'm sorry. Our Lady says that those on the sacred grounds must stop this unnecessary talking. I repeat: Our Lady said, directs that you on the sacred grounds, you will have to stop the disruptions, especially within the ropes. Our Lady said--Our Lady said there must be no disruptions within the circle. There is too much idle chatter.
Now you must understand the sacred presence of Our Lady and Jesus. Our Lady told me to explain this in Her own words. You are not showing good example when you do not recognize the presence of Our Lady and Jesus and conduct worldly talking in Their presence. You are to conduct yourself with prayers of atonement.
Our Lady - "My child, it hurts Me deeply to have to admonish those upon My sacred grounds, but their example will be followed by others.
"Understand, My child, the nature of the sacred grounds and My Shrine. I have come here as a Mediatrix between God and man to guide you through the trials which lie ahead. All who follow My direction must become humble in spirit and divest themselves of all desire for worldly accomplishments." - Our Lady, August 21, 1973
"THEY WILL TRY TO STOP YOU"
"There is an evil force that surrounds the shrine of purity. They will try to stop you with all cunning and deception. Ah, My child, how foolish they are. They have placed themselves above the Father. The battle of the spirits rage; the sheep will be separated from the goats." - Our Lady, August 21, 1973
AN OASIS OF GRACES
"I bless you, My child, and all who come with loving hearts onto My sacred ground. This--these grounds will truly be an oasis of graces in a barren land." - Our Lady, September 13, 1973
NEW YORK CITY CHOSEN FOR REASON
"Many graces will be given to all who come here to My sacred grounds. I have chosen these grounds from many sites throughout earth for reason. Your city is like a cesspool. Your city is a cancer, the evil spreading out throughout the world.
"I know that among you there are many who will accept the cross and be disciples for My Son. Join Me, My children, as We gather your brothers and sisters." - Our Lady, October 6, 1973
"PRAYER WILL BE YOUR ONLY RECOURSE"
"So now prepare for the days ahead. Pray much, wear your sacramentals, and beware of the sunrise. Do not look up to the flash. Pray; pray much during those days. The world will go into deep darkness. Prayer will be your only recourse. The light will flicker throughout the world, and man will be plunged into heavy darkness. My Mother will be here on these sacred grounds.
"The saints cry out in Heaven for retribution against evil man. The balance has fallen heavily to the left, and man now will receive the just recompense of his evil.
"All who have remained in the light will pass through this great cataclysm without fear, knowing that it is in the plan of the Father to shake from the trees all the rotten fruit. Amen, amen, I say to you: This generation shall not pass without chastisement!" - Jesus, November 1, 1973
REQUEST FOR RECOGNITION OF SACRED GROUNDS
"Yes, My child, during all kinds of trials many of the good must suffer with those who have brought the evil upon them and the world. The Father has heard your request for recognition of My Mother's sacred grounds. You must, My child, persevere in your mission. The Father has set the plan. My child, you will accept the Father's will without question. It truly rains teardrops from Heaven." - Jesus, November 24, 1973
SHALL NOT LEAVE UNFULFILLED
"Many conversions and cures, many graces shall be given. Graces in abundance, graces for the asking. All who come to My sacred grounds shall not leave unfulfilled." - Our Lady, December 29, 1973
THROUGH THE MERCIFUL HEART OF THE FATHER
"My child, it is a dark day for mankind. Man has failed the test anew. Murder and violence--sin is a way of life in your country and the world. How long can I hold back the great cataclysm from upon you? Do not think or go about your daily lives without preparation, for it will come upon you suddenly.
"I have warned you, I have given you the plan for your salvation as given to Me by the Father. It is through the merciful heart of the Father that I have come to these sacred grounds as a Mediatrix between God and man. However, your days are counted. Gather your loved ones. Save your soul and the souls of those you love, for many will die in the great flame of the Ball of Redemption." - Our Lady, February 10, 1974
THE GRACE OF COMPLETE CURE
"Yes, I can assure you on this night one among you shall receive the grace of complete cure, cure of what scientific man has called impossible. But We will prove to you, My child, that nothing is impossible with the Father.
"Graces for cure and conversion shall be given from these sacred grounds.
"Now, My child, I will tell you one major reason why the Father sent Me to you and chose this site as a center of reparation. It is because of the murder of the young. It is because your city, your nation, has great influence throughout the world. Your example will be followed by many. But you must return the Father and restore discipline in your daily lives, or you, too, will fall to the sword.
"I repeat, the evil spreads out like a cancer, strangling all in its web. The mariners will stand far off and weep in grief as they see you burning. O city of Babylon, your sins have caused your destruction. Repent now or be lost forever." - Our Lady, March 18, 1974
CURES AND CONVERSIONS SHALL BE COUNTLESS
"The mission for recognition of these sacred grounds will go forward with great speed. The numbers shall be countless who will receive cures and conversion. All glory to the Father, the Lord high God in Heaven. Subject all will to His providence. You see, My child, though there are thorns you may still carry the roses. The power from Heaven shall be known through the roses." - Our Lady, May 22, 1974
GRACES FLOW IN ABUNDANCE
"Graces flow in abundance from the Father onto these sacred grounds. Everything and every soul shall be bathed in the light. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost." - Jesus, June 15, 1974
AN ABUNDANCE OF CURE AND CONVERSION
"My child, make it known to all those who have accepted Our invitation to come to these consecrated and sacred grounds that there will be an abundance of cure and conversion--cure of the spirit and cure of the body, return to the Faith. All this will be accomplished by your prayers and your tests of faith." - Our Lady, July 1, 1974
"THEY WILL TRY TO BURY MY MESSAGE HERE"
"My child, please tell the world, spread the message that I gave many years ago. Much of it remains hidden to the world--the message of Fatima. Jacinta has been forgotten. They have buried My message as they will try to bury My message here on these sacred grounds. However, it is too late now, My children. You must warn and awaken the clergy. They are being tested." - Our Lady, July 25, 1974

"As disciples of the latter days, My children, much shall be asked of you, but I assure you: all that you give in faith and charity shall be returned to you threefold." - Jesus, June 1, 1978
