Our Lady – March 8, 1975

"Protect yourselves and those you love with the armor We have given you.  Do not cast them aside!  Understand, My children: if satan removes your sacramentals, he has more advantage over you.

Our Lady – March 8, 1975
"My Son and the Eternal Father have given you your armor.  You must keep about you at all times – at no cost must you remove from your bodies your crucifix, the St. Benedict medal, and your Scapular.  I say this for a reason."

Our Lady – March 25, 1972
"You have been asked to wear a sacramental about your neck.  Now I will explain why, My children.  I have warned you of the unseen evil forces about you.  I have cautioned you that your human eyes cannot see this.  But it exists and is as solid in their world as you are on your earthly plane.  Know this, that there are two camps now on earth:  Lucifer on one side and the road to Heaven and its followers on the other.  You have all been marked.  There are two signs now:  the mark of the beast and the mark of the living Christ.  Recognize the signs of the times,
My children.
  The war is on!"

(NOTE:   Sacramentals are those rites, actions and things which the Church uses in imitation of the Sacraments in order to obtain through her intercession certain effects, particularly of spiritual nature.  If used in accordance with the mind of the Church, sacramentals are the means of receiving actual grace to do good and avoid evil, of protection of soul and body, and the remission of venial sin.  Among the sacramentals are prayers, holy water, blessings, the sign of the Cross, ashes, medals, the Rosary, candles, vestments, etc.)


Jesus – June 18, 1987
"We demand a crucifix, because demons – many of the highest ones in the realms of hell cannot stand the sight of a crucifix.  They will not approach your door.  I give you this knowledge, My children, though it is not common knowledge upon earth, that the crucifix has great power against satan."

Our Lady – September 7, 1985
"Wear any crucifix that you can find.  It does not have to be big or small, but an image of My Son"

Jesus – October 5, 1985
"I must reveal, My children, to the world again, that you are to keep a crucifix on your front door and your back door.  All entrances to your home must be guarded by the crucifix.  There has not been one home on Long Island that had a crucifix on its door that did fall to any evil (Hurricane Gloria)."

Our Lady – October 6, 1974
"Wear your crucifix about your neck with pride.  Are you ashamed to make it known that you are with My Son"

Veronica – May 20, 1978
"Now Our Lady is kissing – very beautiful!  Oh, so lovingly – the crucifix of Her Rosary."

Our Lady – November 1, 1985
"They can do nothing, My child, while there is a crucifix upon your doors.  I would suggest also, My child, that you go back to your previous habit and plan to keep a St. Benedict medal on each window sill of your home . . . Then you will not be tormented at night by their weird chantings that have kept you awake many nights."

Jesus – November 1, 1985
"This is called a tribulation what will come upon you next.  It will be of an earth force again.  However, with your prayers, and your guarding of your homes, as We have always told you to, with the crucifixes, you can escape with little damage, or none at all.  It will be as though the angel of death has passed by your home."

Jesus – July 1, 1985
"Yes, My child, in the great Chastisement a ball of fire shall fall into the waters killing all that is living in the seas.  And also, unfortunately, because they could not listen and change their ways, many will die also from the flames and also from the waters.  Those living along the coastlines, We caution them to keep a sacramental and a crucifix upon their doors, for the angel of death shall not enter your home."

Our Lady – March 22, 1994
"It will be the death of the children.  Tell the parents that the angel of death will enter their homes.  They will try to use human reason but will not find the cause."

Jesus – June 30, 1984
"There will be carnage within your areas, and this will pass you by if you keep your crucifix upon your doors."

Our Lady – February 7, 1994
"All who keep a crucifix on the front and rear door will not suffer the effects of the Chastisement."

Our Lady – November 1, 1975
     "Extend, My child, the crucifix that you recovered in the church of Saint Robert's.
     "I bless you, My child, and this cross discarded with sorrow in Our hearts.  It will bring immeasurable joy to your heart.  In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
     "No, My child, you shall have two crosses, but this one you will take with you, so you will always be close to My sacred grounds.  Many graces have been given for the return to the Sacraments of Our wandering sheep.  Bless them, My child, on every occasion with this crucifix . . . 
  Veronica – "Our Lady now is coming very far down to kiss the crucifix."

Veronica – September 7, 1979
     "I see now Jesus upon the cross! . . . His hands with the nails through His palms, and the skin-like ropes holding onto His wrist, onto the wood.  (Veronica sighs plaintively as though in pain.)  The blood is carrying through the na-a-ail!  Ah-h-h!  Ah-h-h!
     "His feet are crossed on the wood, the right foot over the left.  (Veronica sighs heavily again.)  There's a big spike through His instep, through His feet onto the wood.  Ah-h-h!  Veronica cries out in pain.)  I see His arms.  Ah-h-h!  His arms are straining.  Ah-h-h!

Every year during Lent, since 1971 until her death, Veronica saw in vision the Passion, the sufferings of Jesus from the agony in the garden to the crucifixion.  She actually physically felt the crucifixion even despite the excruciating pain and horror that it entailed.
Prayer Before a Crucifix
Behold, O kind and most sweet Jesus, I cast myself upon my knees in Thy sight, and with the most fervent desire of my soul I pray and beseech Thee that Thou wouldst impress upon my heart lively sentiments of Faith, Hope, and Charity, with true repentance for my sins, and a firm desire of amendment.  Whilst with deep affection and grief of soul I ponder within myself and mentally contemplate Thy five most precious wounds; having before my eyes that which David spoke in prophecy of Thee, O good Jesus: "They have pierced my hands and feet; they have numbered all my bones."


Our Lady of Fatima and Her Message

There is no other story that better articulates the importance of the rosary to the modern world than the story of the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima.  It is here that we learn the complete message of the rosary from the lips of Our Lady, Herself.

    Three shepherd children were tending their family flock one spring day, May 13, 1917, at a meadow close to the village of Cabeco, Portugal, when they noticed a brilliant sphere of light moving toward them.  As the sphere landed atop a small oak tree, they saw a beautiful lady in white holding a rosary.
    “Where do you come from?” asked nine-year-old Lucia, the oldest of the three. 
    “I come from Heaven,” the lady responded with absolute love.  She asked Lucia and the other two, Francisco and Jacinta, to return to that place on the thirteenth of each month for six consecutive months.  Her last words that day were, “Say the rosary every day to earn peace for the world and the end of war.”
    The lady again appeared to the children exactly one month later.  This time she taught them the prayer we continue to say today as part of the rosary:  “O my Jesus, forgive us.  Save us from the fires of Hell.  Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need.”  She spoke to the children about her Immaculate Heart and expressed, again, the importance of the rosary.
    Again, on July 13, the lady appeared and spoke about the rosary:  “Continue to say the rosary every day in honor of Our Lady of the Rosary to obtain peace for the world and the end of the war . . . “  But still the lady didn’t identify herself.
    On October 13, her final appearance to the children, the lady told Lucia, “I want to tell you that they must build a chapel here in My honor, that I am the Lady of the Rosary, and that people must continue to pray the rosary every day.”  And, as the lady ascended to the heavens, the children saw a beautiful vision of St. Joseph, the child Jesus, and the Lady.  Simultaneous to the children’s vision, the crowd gathered at the site witnessed what is called “the miracle of the sun”.  The sun faded and then began to dance around the sky.  It looked as though it was falling out of the sky before it returned to its proper position.
    In this apparition, Our Lady communicates her message of prayer and peace by way of the rosary.  Although the Blessed Mother has appeared (and continues to appear) at other times and in other places holding a rosary in her hand, or speaking of it, her words at Fatima undoubtedly constitute the strongest message she has left us regarding the rosary, which is why she identifies Herself in this vision as the “Lady of the Rosary.”

Our Lady – July 1, 1985
"I have promised you peace, My children, if you will go forth with your Rosary in one hand and the brown Scapular about your neck."

Jesus – May 10, 1972
"At those moments in which satan seeks to break your spirit, you will retire into a quiet area and pray the beads given by My Mother to you."

Our Lady – June 18, 1979
"A family that prays together will stay together."

Jesus – June 18, 1992
"My children of the world, as My Mother counseled you in the past, We will not abandon you.  We will be with you as long as there is a Rosary recited in your country."

Jesus – June 18, 1979
"All who pray the Rosary and wear My Scapular shall be saved."

Our Lady – February 11, 1971
"Through this treasure (the medal of Our Lady of the Roses) will flow many graces from Heaven.  Have them also blessed by a true, loving priest and wear them for the days ahead.  For, as the crippled will be cured, the blind can see, so shall all be saved who believe and wear this medal."


Our Lady – September 14, 1985
     "Now this be it known: that the Scapular cannot keep you from purgatory.  I purposely gave this knowledge to Saint Simon Stock, the knowledge of the existence of a sacramental so powerful that a man who would fall fast into hell shall escape, through the mercy of his God, and the existence of a shadow of faith that he may have."
     "Therefore, because so few priests in My Son's Church are willing to intercede with the Scapular, and enthrone those who wish it, it has become necessary to give a Scapular to every child upon earth; and he or she of reasonable age shall go forth and find a kind-hearted and true, holy priest to enroll them."
     "My child, you will watch the Scapulars carefully as they come in.  To be of perfection you cannot make a substitution, or you lose the graces, My children.  It is a simple cloth, and can be obtained in many nations.  And those that do not have the means to make these cloths shall use the only passage known to man – to approach another who can help him or her to obtain this perfection in cloth.

The Brown Scapular must be made of 100% woven woolen material and not after the fashion of lace (no transparent qualities).
Our Lady – August 14, 1979
"I promise you, all who wear the Brown Scapular shall never feel the fires of hell.  Even the greatest of sinner will be converted and saved if he will wear the brown Scapular when he passes over the veil – when he leaves, My child and My children, his body at the moment you call upon earth death."



Why Do We Venerate the Sacred Heart of Jesus?

    We venerate, adore and glorify the Sacred Heart of Jesus, because It is the Heart of the God-man, and as a member of the Body of a Divine Person, is worthy of the same homage which we offer to God.  We do not, however, adore the Sacred Heart separately, but only as a living member of the Sacred Humanity of Christ.  Further, we venerate, adore and glorify the Sacred Heart of Jesus because of the great love with which this Divine Heart has loved us from the first moment of It’s existence.  For love of us He delivered Himself to a painful and ignominious death and left to us all His Infinite merits; for love of us He established the Holy Catholic Church with all her means of salvation, and prepared for us in Heaven the abode of our future glory.
    Over and above all this, He bequeathed to us His Sacred Heart with all the treasures of It’s love; not a mere symbolical representation, but a real, true, substantial and living Heart that awaits our adoration in the tabernacle, that beats for us in the Sacred Host, that gives Itself to us substantially in Holy Communion, and in the Sacrifice of the Mass daily offers Itself for us to the Heavenly Father.  This very Heart, bequeathed to us in the Holy Eucharist, is united with the Body and Soul, Divinity and Humanity of the one Divine Person of the God-man, Jesus Christ.  In gratitude for these benefits, we ought eagerly to embrace every opportunity of making a return of love to the Sacred Heart.

Promises of the Sacred Heart

Our Lord gave to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque the following sublime promises in behalf of all who would render to His Sacred Heart their tribute of love, veneration, gratitude and reparation:  
  • I will give them all the graces necessary for their state
  • I will establish peace in their families.
  • I will bless every house in which an image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored.
  • I will console them in all their difficulties.
  • I will be their refuge during life and especially at the hour of death.
  • I will shed abundant blessings upon all their undertakings.
  • Sinners shall find in My Heart a fountain and boundless ocean of mercy.
  • Tepid souls shall become fervent.
  • Fervent souls shall rise speedily to great perfection.
  • I will give to priests the power of touching the hardest hearts.
  • Those who propagate this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be blotted out.
  • I promise thee in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant to all who communicate on the first Friday of the month, for nine consecutive months, the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My displeasure nor without the sacraments; My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.
Our Lady – May 13, 1978
"My children, I have asked you all to consecrate your homes to the Sacred Heart of My Son for reason.  You will need all of the protection available in sacramentals and graces to withstand the onslaught of this evil."

Pope Pius XII, May 15, 1956
    “This devotion (to the Sacred Heart of Jesus) is the highest act of Religion.
    “It demands the full and absolute determination of surrendering and consecrating oneself to the Love of the Divine Redeemer.  The wounded Heart of the Savior is the living sign and symbol of that Love . . .
   “Devotion to the Most Sacred Heart is so important that it may be considered, as far as practice is concerned, the perfect profession of the Christian Religion.”

Devotion To The Sacred Heart

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I consecrate myself to your Most Sacred Heart.  Take possession of my whole being; transform me into Yourself.  Make my hands Your hands, my feet Your feet, my heart Your heart.  Let me see with Your eyes, listen with Your ears, speak with Your lips, love with Your heart, understand with Your mind, serve with Your will, and be dedicated with my whole being.  Make me Your other self.  Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, send me Your Holy Spirit to teach me to love you, and to live through You, with You, in You, and for You.
Come Holy Spirit, make my body Your temple.  Come and abide with me forever.  Give me the deepest love for the Sacred Heart of Jesus in order to serve Him with my whole heart, soul, mind and strength.  Take possession of my intellect understanding and will; my memory and imagination.  O Holy Spirit of Love, give me an abundance of Your efficacious graces.  Give me the fullness of all the virtues; enrich my faith, strengthen my hope, increase my trust, and inflame my love.  Give me the fullness of Your sevenfold gifts, fruits and beatitudes.  Most Holy Trinity, make my soul your sanctuary.

Imprimature; Paul F Leibold, Vicar General of Cincinnati, September 23, 1960.


Our Lady – September 13, 1977
"Learn the use every day of holy water throughout your household.  Insist even with obstructions, insist that your children always wear a sacramental.  One day they will understand that they will repel the demons."


Our Lady – November 21, 1970
"Do not, My dedicated, take away the pictures and statues, for then the children will cast their eyes on things of the world.  We will be just a memory, a legend, to them."

Jesus – February 1, 1978
"Your children must have the statues and the relics as constant reminders of the road they must remain on.  The world outside your doors now is a world of satan."

Jesus – March 25, 1973
"All sacramentals must be worn and kept in the homes.  The monuments, statues, must be kept in the homes and the House of God, for they will not then fall during the trial of chastisement.  All who keep My monuments in their houses will not be destroyed."


Our Lady – October 6, 1977
"You must keep the sacramental, given for these very days from Saint Benedict, upon you.  I, My child, have always called him the 'fighter of demons.'"

Our Lady – June 9, 1979
"You must use over and over a sacramental of great importance in these days, known to you as the medal of Saint Benedict.  You are now in a war of the spirits: it is good against evil; it is the Eternal Father against satan!"

Jesus – July 25, 1985
"Many years ago, We gave unto you through long searching the hidden meaning of the Saint Benedict medal."

                                                Benedict medal front..........St.
                                                Benedict medal back

    Indeed, no medal possesses such wonderful power, and none so highly indulgenced by holy Mother Church, as the medal of St. Benedict, its origin dating back to the Saint himself.  Although the salutary effects of the medal are numerous, its uniqueness and efficacy is marked by its ability to ward off the snares and deceits of the devil, a fact acknowledged by Our Lady Herself on October 6, 1977: "I, My child, have always called him the 'fighter of demons.'"  This is no small consolation today considering the minions of hell loosed upon earth employed in their diabolical works.
    The first hidden meaning is the description and explanation of the symbols and initial letters of Latin words in scribed on the medal.  Its meaning is profound but scarcely known by wearers of the medal, much less the general Catholic populace.
    We describe here the Jubilee Medal, struck in the year 1880 by the Benedictine Order celebrating the 1400th anniversary of the birth of its glorious founder.
    On the one side is the holy Patriarch holding the cross in one hand and the holy rule in the other.  To the right of the saint is the poisoned cup that he shattered by means of the sign of the cross.  To his left a raven about to carry away a poisoned loaf of bread that had been maliciously sent to the holy Patriarch.  Over the cup and the raven is the inscription. Crux S. Patris Benedicti (The cross of the holy Father Benedict).  Around the margin are the words, Ejus In Obitu Nro Praesentia Muniamur (May his presence protect us in the hour of our death).
    On the reverse side is a cross, the sign of our redemption.  In the angles of the cross are the initial letters of the words: Crux Sacra Sir Mihi Lux (May the Holy Cross be my Light).  On the horizontal bar we find the initial letters of the words: Non Draco Sit Mihi Dux (Let not the Dragon be my guide).  Around the margin are the initial letters of the words: Vade Retro Satana!  Nunquam Suade Mihi Vana.  Sunt Mala Quae Libas; Ipse Venena Bibas (Begone, satan!  Do not suggest to me thy vanities – evil are the things thou preferest, drink thou thy own poison).

    It is said that St. Benedict uttered these or similar words as ejaculatory prayers.
    Above the cross is the word, Pax (Peace), the motto of the Benedictine Order, to indicate a blessing the Medal brings upon the devout wearer.
    Now as we are in the latter days when many things hidden are to be revealed (1 cor. 4:5), Our Lady told Veronica in a locution in the early 70s that the second hidden meaning is found in the phrase: "The cross of the Holy Father Benedict."
    The intended meaning is referring to the deep veneration for the holy Cross and the numerous miracles he wrought through the Sign of the Cross, and, Holy Father, signifying an esteemed and affectionate title for the illustrious founder of the community bearing his name.
    However, it is the veiled meaning that constitutes the second hidden meaning.  Because, Our Lady said, this inspired inscription was also prophesying the infiltration of Lucifer (the Dragon) and his cohorts into the highest realms of the hierarchy in Rome in the latter days, resulting in great persecution and suffering (the cross) for the Vicar of Christ (our Holy Father).
    The meaning of the letters on the cross bear this out and serve as an admonishment for him: "May the Holy Cross be my Light; let not the Dragon be my guide."
    We can only marvel at how seemingly unrelated events in the different ages and periods of the Church tie-in so incredibly, and this time from a medal struck over a century ago.
    We know the antichrist forces have been entrenched in Rome since 1972 wreaking great havoc and destruction upon the papacies of the good Vicars, Paul VI, John Paul I, and John Paul II.

    For example, note the messages of La Salette, ("Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of Antichrist", September 19, 1846), Fatima ("the Holy Father will have much to suffer", July 13, 1917), and Bayside among many other sources that one can tap.

Indulgences Attached to the Medal of St. Benedict

Jesus – June 18, 1984

"Satan has entered upon the world some time ago, as My Mother expressed to you, and he roams now like a ravenous wolf; and if you do not keep your sacramentals about your neck, the chances are ninety-nine percent, My children, that you will fall.  If you understand the necessity of the brown Scapular, you will understand also the necessity of keeping yourselves in the world, but not of the world."

Jesus – June 18, 1987
"Remember, keep your sacramentals constantly upon you: your brown Scapular, your St. Benedict medal, the Miraculous Medal, and also the medal of Our Lady of the Roses.  You must keep them upon you, with a crucifix.  We demand a crucifix because demons, many of the highest ones in the realms of hell, cannot stand the sight of a crucifix."

Our Lady – March 8, 1975
"Protect yourselves and those you love with the armor We have given you.  Do not succumb, My children, to the fallacies about you, the half-truths and falsehoods.  Know that your sacramentals were given for reason.  Do not cast them aside!  Understand, My children: if satan removes your sacramentals, he has more advantage over you.

Our Lady – June 18, 1979
"I give you the sacramentals that are necessary for your protection in the days ahead: the Rosary of prayer, beads of prayer to Heaven, pearls of prayer to Heaven; the Scapular of faith to be worn constantly and never removed from your earthly body."

Our Lady – June 4, 1977
"Safeguard with your sacramentals, your children.  They must not go out of your homes without the protection of a sacramental."

Our Lady – March 24, 1973
"I have used the petals of the roses as instruments significant of the graces that I will bestow upon you."

Our Lady – October 6, 1992
"My child and My children, I have given you – I should say My Son and the Eternal Father have given you your armor.  You must keep about you at all times – at no cost must you remove from your bodies your crucifix, the St. Benedict medal, and your Scapular.  I say this for a reason."
