The Fruits of Bishop Mugavero's Influence on the Brooklyn Diocese, the World, and Our Lady of the Roses Shrine...
The following article was taken from the March 1993 issue of the San Francisco Catholic Magazine:
"Bayside Movement" active in San Francisco...
A bogus religious group has been circulating materials in San Francisco church parking lots and arousing interest in their movement among uninformed Catholics. The distributed publications are entitled Directives from Heaven, The Hidden News, and Roses and are produced by "These Last Days Ministries." They promulgate the message of Veronica Lueken of Bayside, Long Island in New York. Mrs. Lueken allegedly had apparitions of the Blessed Mother in 1970.
However, a thorough investigation by the Diocese of Brooklyn could not substantiate the authenticity of the visions. Brooklyn Bishop Francis Mugavero stated in his Declaration concerning the "Bayside Movement", dated November 4, 1986, "I consider it my obligation to offer Christ's faithful pastoral guidance, lest their faith be endangered by "messages" and "teachings" relayed by "visionaries," which are contrary to the Faith of the Catholic Church."
The Bishop's declaration went on to state that no credibility can be given to the so - called "apparitions" reported by Ms. Lueken and her followers. In addition, the messages and other propaganda distributed by the group contain statements which are contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church.
When contacted, the Diocese of Brooklyn stated that Bishop Mugavero's 1986 Declaration is still the position of the Diocese. This position carries the full support of the Vatican.
All members of the Archdiocese of San Francisco are reminded that this movement is not approved by the Catholic Church and that supporting it in any way is inappropriate and harmful to the Catholic faith.
A bogus religious group???
Quinn invites Vassula to commit blasphemy and idolatry in his cathedral and
calls Bayside a bogus religious group? His actions will bring the wrath of God
upon us. Let us storm Heaven with prayers and penance for his soul.
You may want to send your testimony to Bishop Quinn whose address is in the next letter.
Contrary to the teachings of the Church???
No layman, clergy, or theologian has ever proven that the Bayside messages are contrary to Church teaching. Our Lady brings the words of the Eternal Father.
A devoted Baysider responds to Bishop Quinn...
Most Reverend John R. Quinn
441 Church Street
San Francisco, CA 94114
Most Reverend Quinn:
It was, indeed, very disappointing and discouraging to read your article with reference to a "Bogus group". Evidently your office exerted little effort to learn the truth, but instead chose to listen to the opinions of your modernist / liberal friends.
Two falsehoods were published. You state "that no credibility can be given to the apparitions" Approximately five years ago, before thousands of viewers, Father McConnelly or Donnelly, stated very firmly that an investigation had never been initiated nor were any efforts made to interview Mrs. Lueken or for that matter, no arrangements were made to review the medical histories of miracles performed at Bayside.
You stated the Pope has not approved of the group. False! On October 24, 1979 one of the Bayside workers, placed into his Holiness' hands a package containing tapes, messages, medals, rose petals, and a rosary selected by Veronica Lueken.
Upon receiving the package His Holiness stated, "I know about it. I bless you, your family, your relatives, and all your friends back home; and I place you all under the protection of Our Blessed Mother."
If you had dug a little deeper, you would have found that an hour of prayer is held every Sunday for the clergy at the Blessed Mother's request. Further, this "Bogus group" you refer to encourages: daily Mass and Holy Communion, daily rosary, confession at least once a month, daily Bible reading ( the American Bible excluded).
Hardly anti-Catholic or destructive of the Catholic faith! These are the very things we learned in school.
The directives you spoke about are subjects that the priest would present to us once a month. The subjects usually dealt with love of neighbor, heaven, hell, purgatory, the rosary, etc. The directives, which aroused your resentment and disapproval, were or are:
2. Communion in the hand,
3. Deacon / Eucharistic minister.
No wonder so many Catholics are converting to other religions when you deny and disapprove the basics of our Catholic religion - the very foundation of our religion.
As Catholics, we are made aware of the years of study that go into a final approval of miracles and apparitions, but these apparitions have occurred over a period of 20 years and, to date, no one has made an effort to initiate an investigation! Condemnations and disapprovals continue without any basis or proof.
I would suggest, to further analyze this group , your researchers listen to the local radio and T.V. programs.
Angela from San Francisco
P.S. Enclosed are my copies of the directives, I know they will be filed in "File 13".
A message to Bishop Mugavero from Our Lady of the Roses...
On January 31, 1976, Our Lady gave a message to Veronica Lueken on the modernism and humanism and heresies being taught in the "Catholic" seminaries of the United States, especially in her own diocese of Brooklyn. The following are some excerpts from these messages. As can be seen from the following 1992 articles from the "From the Mail" column of the Wanderer, Our Lady's revelation of the sins of Bishop Mugavero is completely confirmed.
Our Lady -
"I have asked of you, My child, several times to write to the Bishop of the
Diocese of Brooklyn. You must do that now while there is time. He must make an
effort to clean out the evil that, through his laxity, has entered upon the
teaching institutions under his command. Errors and heresy abound."
"I have told you in the past - and I repeat Myself, My children: sin has become a way of life. There is now rationalization of sin. The light is dim. The Holy Spirit is not accepted, and a great spirit of darkness is accepted."
"The world of man has fast plunged into darkness. I have shed tears throughout My visitations to you. How much more can I do to prevent the Great Catastrophe from falling upon mankind?"
"I allowed you, My child, to become aware now in full measure of the evil in the teaching institutions of My Son's Church. A new theology of morals has been set among you. And what is it but a creation of Satan!"
"The Commandments of the Father were given, and no one shall cast them aside! What man, in his pride, has the knowledge from the Holy Spirit to change these Commandments to satisfy his basic fallen nature?"
"My children, the seminaries of the United States shall close, unless they start now to clean their houses. The Eternal Father shall not permit young souls to be destroyed by evil teachers, by those who have fallen into error because of loss of grace from Heaven, by those who for worldly gain choose to sell their souls."
"What manner of evil is in these seminaries, My children, that they promote fallacies and heresy, permissive behavior, a morality that now is based on advanced science and theology! The Eternal Father gave the mode, the manner, for man to save his soul (which is) simple, clear, and unadulterated with the evil that now has set My Son's Church in darkness."
"Go back! If you have the time, pastors, go back now! For many mitres shall fall into Hell. I repeat: the Red Hat (Cardinal) has fallen, and the Purple Hat (Bishop) is being misled. I cry to you, through the merciful Heart of the Eternal Father: Turn back now! A new moral theology is coming straight from Hell!
"We command, in the name of the Eternal Father, for all bishops of the world to set My Son's House in order! Obedience is obedience to God the Father and not to the agents of Hell! Shall you obey mankind, and hurt the merciful Heart of the Eternal Father?"
"The sheep are now being separated from the goats. Yes, My child, take courage and speak the truth. You must tell the Bishop that he has placed himself among the goats, and he must remove himself immediately! The Bishop of Brooklyn."
"Do not shudder, My child. You must save his soul. Each soul is precious to the Eternal Father, My child. No, you will not be accused of judging, for you are only bringing the message from Heaven. Hurry now, My child; hasten and send the letter to him. In time you will understand why." (1-31-76)
Our Lady - "My children, if I were to give you an overall picture of your present world and those who have been given power over you and your souls, you would find that many mitres have the faces of goats. Yes, My child, goats!" (3-18-75)
Priest-Sex Suit Seeks $300
Million from Brooklyn Diocese
New York Daily News - BARBARA ROSS and DAVE GOLDINER
10/16/02 - A new $300 million lawsuit accuses top Brooklyn Diocese church leaders of "aiding and abetting" priests who allegedly molested 42 children over four decades. The suit filed yesterday in Queens Supreme Court claims that Bishop Thomas Daily, his predecessor and a top aide covered up child-sex charges and shuffled accused priests from parish to parish without warning parents.
One Queens priest allegedly fondled dozens of boys and girls on the steps of the altar, in a parish school and even in a luxury box at Shea Stadium, the suit claims. "This kind of abuse would have been impossible without the knowing silence of people high in authority," said lawyer Michael Dowd, who filed the suit on behalf of the alleged victims. "They allowed other children to be raped and sodomized over decades."
The suit avers that the diocese was negligent in failing to warn parents about alleged abuse. Dowd charged that church leaders even maintained a secret bank account called the Good Shepherd Fund, with which they bought victims' silence. "The men who have done this not only the abusers but the facilitators are outlaws who have attempted to hijack the Catholic Church," Dowd said.
Bishop Mugavero implicated
Attorney Michael Dowd also dropped a bombshell accusation: That Bishop Francis Mugavero, Daily's predecessor, ignored the abuse allegations because he was gay. Dowd charged at a press conference yesterday that Mugavero, who died in 1991, was "living in a glass house" and feared that his own sexual relationships with adult men might become public if he cracked down on abusive priests. That allegation was not in the court papers.
The Fruits of Bishop Mugavero's Influence...
The following was taken from the From The Mail section of The Wanderer newspaper:
It's not kind to say anything bad about the dead, but the question is: Can one even say the truth about the dead? FTM has mulled over this question for awhile, and invites readers to do the same now.
A Wanderer reader from San Francisco, a transplanted (uprooted?) New Yorker who stays in touch with his old hometown by reading The Brooklyn Tablet, sent the following letter to its editor after he read the praise heaped on the deceased Bishop Francis Mugavero, otherwise known as Mario Cuomo's "pocket bishop" printed in the diocesan newspaper.
FTM doubts the letter was printed in The Brooklyn Tablet so offers it here. Readers can judge for themselves if it is unkind.
"Your recent issue of the Tablet informed of the death of Bishop Mugavero and included many anecdotes and reminiscences of him and his long tenure as chief priest of the Brooklyn Diocese. I am writing to add my reflections and comments to this portrait of him. I hope it will present another perspective of him and his legacy.
"At first inspection, men are viewed by the external, visible accomplishments of their lives. Aided by statistics taken from The Official Catholic Dictionary we can measure the progress of the Brooklyn Diocese under Bishop Mugavero. Using the years 1970 (although he began his episcopacy in 1968) and 1990 (the year he resigned) for comparison we can see the fruits of his influence on the life of the Diocese.
"Over this 20-year span, the Brooklyn Diocese lost 346 priests, 326 Brothers, 1,730 Sisters, 531 seminarians, 19,549 high school students, and 105,220 elementary school students. This is indeed a sad commentary on the state of the Diocese under this man. It is difficult to admit, but the facts speak for themselves. The Catholic Church in Brooklyn these years under this Bishop has suffered a decline that warrants taking a hard look at him and his policies.
"However, at first inspection, numbers can seem cold and calculating. What about Bishop Mugavero's impact on people, not just statistics? Please note that all the totals given counted people, not money, not buildings, but people. Lives, many lives, were affected by this man. You yourself, can attest to the lives of your classmates who finished their priestly training under the Bishop's direction. How many of them left the Diocese in despair at the heresy being taught in Huntington's major seminary? How many persevered to Ordination only to be disillusioned by a priesthood devoid of substance, and sought for fulfillment by abandoning it altogether? How many of your former classmates today live lives of mediocrity and unhappiness which can be seen in their faces and bodies which seem to be too aged for their years? There must be some reason for these things and can we not wonder that their guide and father in the priesthood shares in this somehow?
"Personally, I never did pursue my vocation to the priesthood under Bishop Mugavero. When after eight years in the parish grammar school, I considered entering the Cathedral Minor Seminary, I reluctantly dropped this as an alternative. The young priests sent to us by Bishop Mugavero and who were then assisting in my parish were attempting to change the Faith I had received in Catholic School, just a few years previously. Already, at that age, I was tired of the struggle to maintain the Faith against people I had been raised to love and respect. I could not see entering the seminary where I would be subjected to more intense pressures to conform to the new way sanctioned by the Bishop. The choice was obvious: either embrace false doctrine or be drummed out. Who knows but I might be a priest in Brooklyn today except for Bishop Mugavero.
"No, I never did experience the kindly smiling face of my Bishop. Never did I feel his strength as shepherd of the flock against the attacks of the wolves outside. Never did I have his warm and welcome solitude for the needs of my immortal soul. Instead, a cold, deafening silence was the answer from my spiritual father in the Faith to my desires for the teaching of the pure truth of the Church of God...
"I think that these sorrowful aspects of the Church of Brooklyn under Bishop Mugavero were sorely lacking in your coverage. On behalf of many of us who feel persecuted for adherence to the Faith that Bishop Mugavero was himself raised in, I felt compelled to write and set the record straight. The statistics at the beginning of this letter can not measure the anguish and heartbreak of so many during the last 20 years in Brooklyn.
"With hope in the Sacred Heart and belief in the merciful doctrine of Purgatory, I pray that God will return the Church to His path and grant peace to the soul of our late Bishop.
"Sorrowfully," . . .
Reader: Is this letter unkind, or is it just an honest lament?
An honest lament...
The following two letters were taken from the April 16, 1992 of The Wanderer newspaper:
In the February 6, 1992 edition of FTM, a letter from a transplanted Brooklynite was published on the sad legacy of Bishop Mugavero. At the time, FTM said it worried that publication of the letter would be viewed as unkind, but a number of readers felt otherwise, including the two whose letters are printed below.
"What is it about being dead that makes it unkind to speak out concerning a dead person's ignoble deeds?," asked a reader from Lexington, Mass.
"The letter writer didn't say anything about Bishop Mugavero that wasn't common knowledge. That letter was an "honest lament." That letter was a kindness to those who suffered anguish because of Bishop Mugavero's refusal to fulfill his holy duties and his distortion of the Catholic Faith.
Another reader, an attorney from Brooklyn, wrote: "I knew Bishop Mugavero personally - a good and pious man. However, the comments made by your reader are absolutely true. In addition, the Bishop turned a once - strong Catholic Diocese into the annulment capital of the world. He was not forceful on abortion, which was hardly ever mentioned in the churches of the Diocese. He was Cuomo's godfather. The Brooklyn Tablet, the official paper of the Diocese, was once a very traditional paper. Under Mugavero it became a vehicle for every liberal cause in the city."
Bayside miracles and fallen away Catholics return to the Church...
liberal clergy and the changes in the Church are driving souls away from the
Church, Our Lady of the Roses is bringing them back.
We have many testimonies where people come back to the Church after being away for twenty or thirty years or more. Read the testimonials... "It was a miracle!" say Doctors and Nurses... Miraculous pictures...
Bishop Mugavero refused to meet with Veronica...
told me once (Gary Wohlscheid of These Last Days Ministries) that she and her husband, Arthur, went to the Chancery Office of
the Brooklyn Diocese to meet with Bishop Mugavero because there was talk of an
investigation but the diocese had not contacted her.
When they arrived Monsignor King took them to a waiting room. Veronica noticed that there were no religious pictures or statues to be seen. There was just one large oil painting of Bishop Mugavero.
As they waited, diocesan staff passed through the room and looked at them as if they were space aliens from another planet. A nun walked through in civilian clothes and a short dress. After about 45 minutes Msgr. King came back and ushered Veronica and her husband to the door.
No one from the Diocese of Brooklyn ever talked to Veronica, her secretary Mrs. Ann Ferguson, or any of the Shrine workers, nor any of the people who were cured at Bayside in this alleged investigation. Now, how can the Brooklyn Diocese claim they did a thorough investigation when they didn't contact any of the people involved? Also, people have requested a copy of the investigation of Our Lady of the Roses Shrine and the Brooklyn Diocese admits it doesn't exist.
Because of Bishop Mugavero's rejection of Our Lady of the Roses, the clergy, Catholics, and the world has rejected the Bayside warnings and prophecies given form Heaven. The result, we are now facing the wrath of an angry God. Watch and see!
Bishop Mugavero Dies on Veronica's Birthday...
On July 12,
1991, Veronica's 68th birthday, Bishop Francis J. Mugavero was called to his
eternal reward. It was as if Heaven was saying to Veronica, we are removing the
major obstacle to the Mission from Heaven, Happy Birthday.
All down through history people will be talking about the timing of the passing of this bishop. Nothing happens by accident. It is all planned by God.
Please remember the repose of the soul of Bishop Mugavero in your prayers.
Our Lady of
the Roses awesome Bayside Prophecies...
These prophecies came from Jesus, Mary, and the saints to Veronica Lueken at Bayside, NY, from 1968 to 1995.
FILTH MUST BE CLEANSED"
ABUSES TO CHILDREN "Reams of pornography! Abuses to
children! Ages almost from the cradle! I say unto you: you have called down
upon yourselves a just punishment from your God!"
Jesus, May 28, 1977
"Reams of pornography! Abuses to
children! Ages almost from the cradle! I say unto you: you have called down
upon yourselves a just punishment from your God!"
Jesus, May 28, 1977
"Just as My Son stood before Pilate and he washed his hands and said: 'This man is innocent; I see no wrong in him,' however, in his heart he knew of innocence but he feared reprisal from the crowd, My children; he valued his life, he loved his sin, and he was too much involved with the pleasures of this life and the world.
"You see, My children, it is taking place all over again for those in command in rule. They go along 'passing,' as you say, 'the buck,' each one not willing to admit his error or his participation in evil, but only too willingly allowing others to take the blame or the responsibility. And I assure you, My children, if evil is being allowed, the 'buck passer' is just as guilty as the original one who had started the evil.
"If you know in your hearts, O pastors, that souls are in danger of being corrupted, misled, and even destroyed, and you do nothing about it, because you do not wish to offend your superiors, because you value your life in this world too much and your good living; I assure you, O pastors, you shall stand before My Son and He shall not know you. You will be disowned, banished from eternal life in Heaven, and you shall join your father who is the father of all liars, satan, and the prince of darkness." Our Lady, March 18, 1977
"DO NOT DESERT MY CHURCH"
"My children, do not cast aside your sacramentals. They are your armor in the days ahead. Do not desert My Church. Do not judge it by the man who has stood there in ignorance or in pride and changed it until it will almost be unrecognizable. I am still with you, My children. Do not leave. You must stay and fight. In this manner, My children, shall the sheep be separated from the goats. It is a form of cleansing." Jesus, July 15, 1977

"I must ask you all to read but a few short chapters a day now, the Book of life and love, your Bible. Knowledge must be gained for all the disciples of My Son, for you will be attacked by scientific minds.
