Note: Father Skurla had originally penned a more conciliatory and subdued
pro Bayside statement we are told, but while kneeling in prayer shortly
before he was to give his now famous and historic talk, he felt an interior
inspirationas though the voice of the Blessed
Virgin herselfurging him on to a complete and
unequivocal endorsement of Our Lady's messages at Bayside. Please take a few
minutes to read all of Father Skurla's sermon; it is most enlightening. Let
us hope and pray that Father Skurla's courageous voice, like a modern day
St. John the Baptist crying in the wilderness, will be heeded by the many
clerical Nicodemuses, who do not have the fortitude to openly and publicly
acknowledge the call of their Mother at Bayside.
On this Palm Sunday, let us think about the Sixth Station of the Cross, the
Way of the Cross, where Our Lord meets Veronica. According to the text of
St. Alphonsus, it says in our typical books: "Consider now the holy
woman, Veronica, seeing Jesus so afflicted and His face bathed in sweat and
blood, presented Him with a towel with which she wiped His adorable face,
leaving on it the impression of His Holy Countenance." My friends, let
us place ourselves mentally at this scene.
of the crowd has been in a wild frenzy, and most of them are reacting
against Jesus. Those people who are out to get Him, and those people who
normally follow the crowd, we have them even today. Together they proceed
with the greatest sacrilege of all time. Oh, but wait a minute; wait a
minute! Not everyone is against Jesus. We can see one brave soulsomeone
who dared to be differentwho wipes His afflicted
face with a towel. Because of this charitable act, she will be in the Heart
of Jesus for all eternity.
you believe, children and grownups, would you believe that in the year 1982,
Jesus is sentenced to be crucified againthis time
through His Mystical Body, the Churchmy friends, of
which Church you and I are members of. But cancer (you know what cancer is;
we hear the word so much)cancer has set into the
Church through Satan, who has entered the Church. Satan has entered the
Church! Through the instrumentality of modernism, secular humanism and
communism, the devil has influenced many of the changes in our One Holy,
Catholic and Apostolic Church.
here we are at the Sixth Station once again. Here comes Jesus! Here comes
Jesus down that road carrying that cross once more, with His face bathed in
sweat and blood. In the actual events portrayed in the Gospels, at the sixth
Station, where we saw Veronica express her innermost feelings, we must keep
in mind that the religion of that day, for Veronica, was the Jewish
religion, to which Veronica belonged. She belonged to that religion.
Veronica's church leaders, the priests and the high priests, had already
decided and judged to crucify Jesus; and by helping Jesus, and by wiping His
face with a towel, she had to defy what her priests were doing.
Most of us, or too many of us, follow the
leader. You and I both, we have been correctly trainedto
a point, correctly trained to obey our priests and bishops. And we should,
and definitely we should. The Blessed Mother has been begging, with tears in
her eyes, for you people to pray for us priests and bishops, and the
cardinals. It's because we have failed that they have so much difficulty.
Today, we have been caught up in the modes of modernism, with the mainstream
of Catholics going along with the changes. As I talk to Catholics like
yourselves, I find that, like myself, they are very confused. Is there
anywhere we can turn to with some kind of certainty to find the answers to
Some of the changes
are causing serious damage to the Catholic Church. In the name of progress,
bishops and priests and laymen go along with changes which are harmful to
Jesus Christ's Mystical Body, the Church. In these times, is there anyone
among us in our area, in this country, the good old U.S.A.is
there anyone among us brave enough to speak out? One of your priests should
be here telling you about this, but I'm afraid they might be afraid to get a
smaller parish. And
I am not a subject of your bishop. The Blessed Mother, I feel, has urged,
not only asked me, to give this message to you.
If Veronica of the
Gospels had not wiped the face of Jesus with the towel, He would have been
crucified anyway, because Jesus was destined by Divine will to be so
crucified for our sinsyours and mine. But Veronica
changed her own destiny by her free will. God doesn't interfere with free
will. She changed her own destiny, not Jesus'. And by her little act of
kindness by stepping out, being different from the crowd . . . she stepped
out from the crowd and went over and wiped the face of Jesus. And the
Mystical Body, who is our Lord, He needs people like you to come out of the
crowd and wipe His face. The beautiful act of love on the part of Veronica!
And no matter what you and I will do now in these days, 1982, the damage in
the Church, which is permitted by God and foretold in the Bible, will
happen. But you and I, we can change our own destiny by
It must be very
difficult for you lay people, because I have been a priest over twenty five
years and many things have happened [recently] that threaten what I was
taught about the Church, and what I
believed in my heart about the Church to be the truth about it. And I, too,
like you, look around and ask myself: "I wonder what Jesus and Mary are
thinking about all of these changes?"
Well, as fate would
have it, Divine Providence has supplied us with solutions. These solutions
come from a very concerned Jesus and Mary. But, remember, the devil would do
anything to keep this information
from you. History has recognized another VeronicaVeronica
Lueken, a simple housewife like many of you, to whom Jesus and Mary have
appeared for over ten years. For the most part, the devil has kept this
information from most of us. Ah, but wouldn't the devil like to
from going on, and keep my mouth shut!
and Mary have appeared to Veronica on the evening of all major feasts of the
Going against the popular opinion of Church leaders and the mainstream,
Veronica of Long
Island has been willing to accept all the crosses involved in being the
voice box, the transmitter
of the messages from Jesus and Mary to Her children. Now, if there are
and punishments coming to the earth and the people in it, do you think that
Mary would sit back and let these things happen without warning us?
I speak for myself and no one elseI myself have
studied these messages for almost ten years, and I found in them the peace
and the light and the information that a twentieth century
needs in these troubled times. In these most difficult times, Jesus and Our
have warned us of the days ahead. She is giving us all the information that
we need to help us
pull through the coming chastisementwhich has
already been sanctioned by the Heavenly Father,
and is on its way.
I think, children, there is nothing to be giggling and laughing about. These
things are serious, and they should be looked into. Our Mother Mary has
spoken out on this issue. And you say: "Why
Father? Why are these things going to happen to young people and old people?
What did we do wrong?". Mainly, without going into a long discourse,
abortions! The terrible crime of abortion!
Mother Mary has spoken out on this issue in a message of December 28, 1974.
She appeared to
Veronica and showed her a scene where babies were dumped in the garbage.
There was a mixture
of little tiny heads and little tiny arms and little tiny legs; and Mary
said: "Yes. My child, murder;
this is not a pretty sight! All who even share in a slight measure of
responsibility for the murder
of the unborn shall send themselves into the abyss. Repent now for your
Her apparitions in the United States at Bayside, Our Lady wants to be known
as Our Lady of the
Roses, Mary, Help of Mothers. And you, mothers, know that there's no better
title for American
mothers: Our Lady of the Roses, Mary, Help of Mothers. Mary and Jesus have
on the very issues that seem to confuse most of us: Abortion is murder. Men
will not dress as women,
will not dress as men. Women should not wear slacks or jeans. You should not
Church. Jesus has said that no woman will enter the ministry and will not
minister in any way.
Now I couldn't say that, and you couldn't say it, but Jesus said it; and He
had a right to say it.
On homosexuality, He said: "All who take part in it or condone it shall
be destroyed." Rock music has been consecrated to Satan.
very good friend, whom I pray to all the timePadre
Pio appeared on April 5, 1975 at Bayside, New York, and said: "The Holy
Sacrifice of the Mass is being celebrated in a manner
that is not
approved and pleasing to Almighty God." Not that it's not valid, but it
is not pleasing to Almighty God. Kneel for Communion. We say in the
Scriptures: "At the Name of Jesus everyone should bend," then why
do we stand for Holy Communion, when we have Jesus in person? Do not
accept Holy Communion in the hand! Do not lose faith in the Mass.
However, whether your
priest is a saint or whether your priest is a sinner, Jesus will come to
you. The Mass is valid. Why?
Because Jesus says it is! But, even more important than all these things,
and the reason why I'm talking the way I am, is that Mary says: People, Pray
the Rosary! Pray the Rosary! The hand of
the Blessed MotherShe's having a difficult time
holding the hand of God back: "My Son's hand has now been withdrawn,
and the tribulation is coming upon mankind." She can't stop it
And Jesus has also
said: "My Mother has set Herself to hold off a just chastisement upon
many years, but very few listened to Her." And Jesus says: "Your
time has run out. Her warnings
have gone by unaccepted, unnoticed and rejected, even by My clergy. Do not
dates. If you are not ready now you'll never be. The tribulation is at hand.
My voice cries out to you
all now to be prepared."
Prayer now is the
only means, with actions, for saving souls in our country, the U.S.A., and
citizens where Jesus is saying: "Prayer is the only means to save souls
in your country and your
fellow citizens, for destruction is about to come upon you. Pray, My
children. for strength. It will
take great courage to remain in the Catholic Church in the days ahead, but
your courage shall be
the cross and the knowledge of the truth. Remember, do not become a
worshipper of the creature.
but of the Creator; for the creature is the world and the world is Satan.
The Creator is your
God, and His world is the Kingdom of Paradise. This choice will be
yours." Each and everyone
of usman, woman or childwill
have to make his decision. No man shall be lost unless
he is lost
of his own free will.
"My children, you will read and reread the messages from Heaven given
through My Mother
to you. Read them well. You will receive great knowledge, and you will be
able to know the day,
the hour of the tribulation." The end of my quote for Jesus.
People today are
confused. People need somewhere to turn. Our leaders have been led astray,
we are obliged to obey them; but not when what our leaders ask contradicts
what God has said.
We should rather fear God and not man. God has given us another Veronica,
but the devil stepped
in and caused enormous confusion about the messages; and, as of yet the
Church has not approved
the apparitions that I'm talking about. I don't ask you to go there, but
Jesus has asked you
to go in the messages. I'm asking you to read the messages and pray over
All my confusion as
a priest, a Catholic priest, and all my doubts were eliminated when I read
the instructions of Jesus and Mary. Fatima has been called a reaffirmation
of the Gospels. I say that the
messages of Jesus and Mary on Long Island do not, nor could they ever
contradict what is contained
in the Gospels. The messages are in perfect harmony with all the things that
I believe in and
was taught about the Catholic Church.
I was in communion
with your priests all along, and we always agreed on everything. I went to
be a priest
twenty five years ago because I was impressed with the beauties of the
Catholic Church; but Satan
has entered into the Church and changed it so much [that] it has lost much
of its beauty. It is
no longer attracting our young men into the priesthood. And If I was living
[as a youngster] today,
I doubt if I would go. It's not the same Church.
The messages of
Bayside restored my confidence in the Church once more, and once again I am
proud to be
. . . because things haven't that much changed; we're trying to change, but
The messages of
Bayside restored my confidence in the Catholic Church once more. I will
stake my reputation, if that means anything, on the doctrine contained in
the messages. The doctrine is the same
as I was trained in over the years.
I want to go on
record as personally accepting the messages until proven otherwise by our
loving Holy Father. But to accept the messages today, on Palm Sunday 1982,
it requires an exceptional
amount of grace, similar to the amount of grace that it took in courage for
step out of the crowd and wipe the face of Jesus. I don't expect everybody
to have that kind of grace,
but I know that when the Warning comes, more people will believe in these
things. Similar to that given to Veronica in the Gospels, you have to be
strong in the faith, deep in your convictions,
I say, yes, we're told traditionally to meditate on the Passion as portrayed
by the four Evangelists.
Yes, read the Passion; but I ask you with all the love in my heart, read the

you have a right
to know what They are saying, especially when They are saying very serious
things about what's
May the Blessed
Mother and Our Lord inspire you to have a very good Holy Week. And don't
passively by, but place yourselves on the road to Calvary, right next to
Jesus and say: "Jesus, what
can I do in 1982 to help?" Meditate on the Passion of Our Lord. The
Blessed Mother says we don't meditate on the Passion enough.
Stick with your Church, your pastor and your priest, because the Blessed
Mother is telling you in these
messages: "Stay with your Church." Don't give up. You may disagree
with the priest, or one of
the priests, if you have more; but She says that when the priest makes the
Consecration, Our Lord
will not hold that against you: that bread and wine will change into the
Body and Blood of Jesus,
and Our Lord will come to you. And you need that strength you will get from
the Holy Eucharist.
So, pray for your
bishops, cardinals and priestsreally pray! And may
Our Blessed Lord be with all
of us, and may God bless us; and the Blessed Mother bless us that we have
the grace to do God's
will in this life, and that we may be found worthy of His Heavenly Kingdom.
