#232 - THE RELIGIOUS HABIT & CLERICAL GARB
“The Church must always seek to make her presence visible in everyday life, especially in contemporary culture, which is often very secularized and yet sensitive to the language of signs. In this regard the Church has a right to expect a significant contribution from consecrated persons, called as they are in every situation to bear clear witness that they belong to Christ. Since the habit is a sign of consecration, poverty and membership in a particular Religious family, I join the Fathers of the Synod in strongly recommending to men and women religious that they wear their proper habit, suitably adapted to the conditions of time and place.” - Pope John Paul II, Vita Consecrata, March 25, 1996, #25.
GARMENT OF PURITY
"Holiness and piety! Man—men of God, you must wear your garment of purity, dedication, and piety. What manner of foul deeds do you perform for the destruction of your sheep! For what? Material gain and pride and arrogance? You shall be cast into the abyss! Rank shall give you no advantage when you come over the veil." - St. Michael, December 24, 1975
A LONG HABIT
"The road to Heaven, my sisters, is a narrow one and not difficult to follow, unless you choose to turn away. Even a short duration in the world will soil your soul. You must not, my sisters, give yourselves to the world in thought or deed or dress. Your example must be as one as Our Lady is dressed--a long habit that reaches to the ground. When you, my children and sisters, discard a proper attire--dress and habits--you do much destruction to your order, to your vocation, for you no longer are an example of purity and commanding respect. You do not receive respect. You are a scandal to your vocation, my sisters! You must not be obedient to the cry of the serpent.
"The rule must be followed within the convents. My sisters, you will gain nothing by leaving and going into the world. It is a deception of satan to destroy your vocation and true purpose as brides of Christ. Come out of the darkness, my sisters!” - St. Theresa, October 2, 1975
REMAIN IN THE HABIT
"Jesus the Lord, your Lord, my sisters and brothers, has made the rule. You cannot change it to suit yourselves. You have been blinded by satan. The liberation in your hearts has been placed there by satan. You gain nothing but your own destruction. Nuns, those who have accepted the rule and taken the habit, must remain in the habit.” - St. Theresa, October 2, 1975
"My garments--what are they doing to my garments?" [It was the change she saw in the habits of nuns that upset her. Nuns wearing these new habits are most disapproved of in Heaven; they are described as "half-hearted vocations," with vanity and much worldly attachment.] - St. Theresa, August 14, 1970
RETURN HABIT TO THE FLOOR
"Come out of the darkness, my sisters. You have been misled. Do not follow the fashions of your world. There is no fashion in Heaven. Jesus never changes. There is great punishment ahead for those who follow the world. Do not leave when you are discouraged by those who satan has sent into your convents. Stand forth as an example of purity and godliness. You will not be cast aside by your God, as you will by man, as you stand to defend your God. Pick up your cross and carry it.
"You will return the habit to the floor." - St. Theresa, November 20, 1972
RESTORE THE HABITS
"You must not forget, My child, Jacinta 1972. I spoke with the child, and told her of the fashions that would come to the world that would displease the Almighty Father very much. These fashions would lead many young onto the road to perdition. These fashions have even entered into the convents of the good sisters, and have seduced them into becoming ordinary misses of the world.
"My children, you must hasten to tell the good sisters that they must not join the world. They are losing vocations because of their changes. They must restore their habit worn to the ground. It was an example of great strength and piety for others and brought many vocations to the convents. Have you not realized the fruits of your endeavors to become modern? Good sisters, return and restore the convents." - Our Lady, April 1, 1978
"You are confounded and deluded, My child, by not recognizing the faces of evil among you. The habit of the cleric has often been soiled because of intellectual pride, My child. Know now that intellectual pride is a far greater barrier against sanctity, will hinder you from the path of sanctity faster, My children, than outright licentiousness and evil. Intellectual pride is the downfall of many. Pride, My children, is a sin.” - Our Lady, March 29, 1975
"Women with vocations, you have become worldly! You have chosen of your free will to degrade your bodies and your habit. Whatever shall become of you, foolish maidens of the world? Return while there is time! Purify your bodies through suffering. Place upon your bodies garments of holiness--down to the floor! You shall not set yourselves to tempt your pastors! Satan has set a delusion among you. You have become maidens of sin.” - Our Lady, September 6, 1975
"Dear sister, Veronica, I have all sensitivity to what is taking place upon earth. I have even looked into my former home on earth. It distresses us all here in the Kingdom to find the changes promoted by satan. You must not accept change, my sisters, to please man if it does not please the Eternal Father. Return your habits to the floor. Bring back the fast, my sisters, the fast of sacrifice. Do not go outside the gates, for satan is waiting there for you.
"You are being misled, my sisters. Stand fast in your Faith. We await you all in Heaven, and my arms will be filled with roses for you. Do not discard your habit, for you will be unrecognized to the world, and also unrecognized by the Father in Heaven.” - St. Theresa, March 18, 1975
SIGNIFICATION OF HOLINESS
"Retain all sacramentals in your homes. And do not be misled by clergy who have cast off their habits, outwardly and inwardly have cast away the true light. My children, the habit was always a signification of holiness, piety, dedication in My House, My Church. But, My children, do not be fooled by those who have fouled their habits.
"The agents of 666 now are loosed in Rome and have entered into the highest places of the hierarchy. It will be bishop against bishop and cardinal against cardinal, till all that remains will come forward out of the cleansing.” - Jesus, July 25, 1977
Veronica - I'm looking into a room--it's a room, and I see some clothes piled over to the side. And I see some girls dancing; they're all standing by the side of the room and kicking up their feet. And they have leggings on, like black leotards. And Our Lady is now holding Her finger up, like this.
Our Lady - "No, no! No, no! You are looking into the room of Our spouses of Christ. See, My child, what satan has done."
Veronica - Oh, they're nuns. Oh, my, but they're all doing some kind of modern dancing. Oh, now Our Lady has reached down and She's picked up a skirt. But Our Lady is holding the skirt like it disgusts Her.
Our Lady - "They, My child, call this the habit."
Veronica - Now Our Lady has put it down and She's placed Her feet over it, and She's stomped on it.
Our Lady - "The snake writhers through the garments, My child."
Veronica - Our Lady's not happy with the dresses worn in the convents.
Our Lady - "You must warn your sisters in the convents, My child, that the Father is much displeased by their actions. Their example is poor, and the doors will close on all convents that have given themselves over to the pleasures and lusts of the world.
"It is better, My child, if We have few with quality than quantity with destruction. The doors will close. And pray much, My children, for those that remain are falling fast to satan.” - November 20, 1974
"My sisters of the convents, you must return to a life of mortification and self-privation. You have succumbed to the lures of satan, loving more the pleasures of worldly flesh than the ecstasies that lie beyond the veil when you pass over. Your lives must return to the rule, the strict rule of self-discipline. Your example is very poor to the children. Your actions have not gone by unnoticed by the Father. You will be called to task for your bad example." - St. Theresa, October 2, 1973
ARE YOU ASHAMED?
"High priests of God and foolish virgins who have given themselves to the world, why have you chosen to go down the path to ruination? Your example has set many on the road to hell! Are you ashamed to stand forth and wear the habit of your order? No, you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven by entering the world! When the world and the House of God become one, it is the end!
"My children, know well the words of truth that you will never gather the souls to the Father by casting aside the directions of the Father given through the prophets of old. You cannot set up new standards. Nothing ever changes in Heaven. The Father is, the Father was, the Father always will be! And the world will be as it was in the beginning, or it shall be changed gradually back to its normal state. This change will come about by a slow cleansing. It will be truly, My children, a crucible of suffering.” - Our Lady, October 6, 1973
"I ask, as your Mother, Our priests--your clergy--to look into their hearts. Shall they stand before My Son and say that their teaching has been true in His sight? Woe to the clergy who has fouled his garments! His badge of honor has been cast aside! It is an outward appearance of his inner soul. Little by little, step by step, the foundation is whittled at by Our clergy. They have been deluded by satan.” - Our Lady, December 31, 1974
GARMENTS OF HONOR
"My child, Our pleas fall on deaf ears. How long must I beg for chastity when immorality reigns upon your world. Foolish virgins, whatever will become of you? You have become confounded. You have cast aside your garments of honor. Why have you cast them aside? Are you ashamed to be known as spouses of Christ? Are you not becoming brides of satan?" - Our Lady, March 24, 1974
MUST NOT JOIN THE WORLD
"Tell my sisters not to fall into the errors of the world. They must not join the world, or they will be lost to us here in Heaven. They must place the garments of holiness upon themselves--bring their habits to the floor.
"All signs of worldliness must be removed from their persons, for when they join the world, they will no longer be brides of the Christ.
"If a bride of Christ gives herself without change to the world, she will find it difficult to return and accept the truth, for she will become blinded. Please pray, my sisters and brothers, for those who are losing the way." - St. Theresa, July 25, 1975
YOU ARE BLIND
"Our clergy must not set themselves into the ranks of the ordinary man! A man of God is not an ordinary man. He is a representative of My Son. As such, he must be looked upon with respect, but this respect must be earned.
"Many have cast their garments aside. Replace them, for you are in great error!
"Foolish maidens, why have you removed your habits? You are blind to the fact that you no longer receive the respect or the honor. And your leadership is poor; your example is poor to the young. Foolish maidens, please replace your habits!” - Our Lady, July 25, 1974
CANNOT BE TOLERATED
Veronica - Now Our Lady is looking over, and She's saying:
Our Lady - "Is that a nun I see over there? Where are her garments?"
Veronica - "I don't know, Blessed Mother."
Our Lady - "My child, you will also make it known that We are not happy to see the world enter all of Our convents. They discard the habits; they're no longer maidens of purity. And I tell you, My children, that cannot be tolerated. Modernism must not be a way of life for Our dedicated. Our nuns have to have discipline, My children. Do not bring the world into the convents. I ask that the convents remain free of all television and radios, and return to their prayer life.
"Also, My Son wants it known that He is fully aware of the prayer life, the lack of prayer life, in His dedicated. They have become men of the world, and no longer men of God. I know this shocks you, My child, but it cannot be avoided. There has to be a change.” - June 18, 1990
THE NEW HABITS
St. Theresa - "Veronica, I see many of those new--I don't call them garments--creations of satan. Why haven't they brought them down?"
Veronica - Oh! Oh, Theresa is just shaking her head very sadly, and she's looking over to the convent. And now her sisters are also shaking their heads yes, yes. Now Theresa says:
St. Theresa - "Dire destruction will be their end. Oh, pity these poor souls! They have hardened their hearts; they close their ears.
"The Father plans a great Chastisement for the world. Our prayers of supplication rise to Heaven for more time. All the forces of Heaven work with you upon earth to save you from the abyss." - July 1, 1973
“You shall not compromise My House, My Church, for you are separating My sheep. Awaken from your slumber, O pastors! You have become soft and pliable to the enemy, because you have fallen asleep on your job! Compromise! Change! If you have a solid foundation--and you were given a solid foundation--what need is there to change, for you seek then to change the foundation. You are chipping away at My Church; you are burrowing like rats into the foundation of My Church.
"I shall return, and I shall send you out of My Church, O you of little faith. It is not your soul that you have set into jeopardy, but it is the souls of those under your care and direction. You are misleading, and you are setting many souls onto the road to perdition. When you cast aside your collar and join the world, you cast aside your vocation. I give now fair warning to Our shepherds: Gather My sheep now, for many mitres shall fall into hell!” - Jesus, June 12, 1976
LITTLE WAY TO SANCTITY
"Please, my sisters, return your garments to the floor! Your example is not one of piety and chastity. Your vows have been discarded. You enter into a world that has been given to satan. Retreat from this world. Go back to your life of prayer. Better a life of solitude than a life of eternal damnation.
"Prayer has given way to worldly pleasure. My sisters, you are truly foolish maidens. You have given yourselves as brides of Christ. A bride does not commit adultery in her heart. When you reject the Son of God, you truly commit this in your heart. The spirit has no part of the flesh. You must live in the spirit and fight the pleasures of the flesh. For these pleasures are not being used in the manner given by the Father.
"Chastity and poverty, these are given for reason. Do not discard this little way to sanctity." - St. Theresa, September 28, 1974
Veronica - Now Theresa and Our Lady are moving over, and they're pointing up into the sky. It's like watching a movie up there, because I can see now, there are buildings.... Oh, I can see young men walking out of the buildings, so they must be like monasteries or seminaries.
Now Our Lady is standing over by the door of one and watching as these young men are walking out. And Theresa is now walking over by Our Lady by the door, and she's turning around. I... oh, I'm going with them. Oh, I'm right by the door.
St. Theresa - "Veronica, my sister, look! Look how they are dressing! Would you recognize them as dedicated brothers of the Father Eternal?" - May 17, 1975
THE TRUE HABIT
"My sisters, you have paid no heed to my words. You are dressing yourselves like pagans. The convents will be empty. Whatever shall we do for example? You must not follow the modes of the world. My sisters, you have been misled. Return to your habits. None will enter your convents with true vocation with the example you set now upon yourselves and the world.
"Is it because you have lost the love of your God? Do you not feel great honor for the symbol of your being a true spouse of your God? Half-hearted vocations, sinfulness within the convents! O woe, my sisters, whatever will become of you now? Better that you wear the true habit and sign of dedication than to burn in the fires of hell.
"You will not bring true postulants into the convents by your example now. You walk in darkness, my sisters. Pray for the light, or your convents will be closed. This is the plan of the enemy of God. You must take yourselves from the world and worldly pursuits." - St. Theresa, September 13, 1973
SIGN OF YOUR DEDICATION
"My children, see My habit given by the Eternal Father. Children of God, in vocations to the sisterhood, whatever shall become of you? You have become foolish maidens without modesty and piety. You run with your heads high in the air in clouds of darkness. You remove your habit and take on the raiment of the world. O My children, you are defaming your vocation!
"Sisters, do you not understand why you were given a long habit to wear? It was a sign to the world of your dedication. You were to become brides of Christ, My children. And what have you given to the world, but a poor example of worldliness without dedication. You have become of the world; you have proceeded onto the wide road.
"Sisters in vocations, turn back! Do not become maidens of the world, foolish maidens, but return and be brides of Christ, brides who have been given the key to the Eternal Kingdom of your God.
"My sisters, without this firm dedication and example of piety and holiness, you cannot induce or lead others into your vocation. The convents are slowly closing. And why, My children? Because there are too few who try to find the real reason. They have succumbed to the lures of the world." - Our Lady, July 15, 1977
BADGE OF HONOR
"A duly ordained priest in the House of God shall not remove his habit. He shall not take the badge of honor of his vocation from him. In doing thus, he subjects his soul to contamination from worldly influence.
"Do you not feel honor for having been chosen from a multitude of souls to be representative of your God upon your world? Have you shame for your vocation? Woe to the man who turns his eyes and heart upon the world and adopts the maxims of the world, all creations of satan!" - Our Lady, March 25, 1973
“YOU WILL NOT BE RECOGNIZED”
Veronica - And now, looking over I can see Pope John. Oh, and he also is dressed in white and gold, and has white slippers on, too. He's very well covered--like a cape over his shoulders, and oh, I can see his garments very, very well. Oh, they're beautiful.
And now Pope John is bending down.
Pope John - "Would you, my child, recognize me if I removed these garments? No, you would not. This is fair example to the clergy of the world. You will not be recognized by the Father if you remove your garments, either." - February 1, 1975
NO MAN SHALL EXCUSE HIMSELF
"No man shall stand before Me and have on his count the loss of souls entrusted to him. No man shall excuse himself with rules and obedience, with rules set forth by satan. You will not give yourselves to the world. You will not take My Church and give it to the world of satan, turning it from a place of sanctity and refuge to a meeting place of all foul practices, lacking respect and honor! You take off your collar and expose your true nature. You are of carnal desires. As such, you shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” - Jesus, October 2, 1975
