Veronica Luekin, the late seer of Bayside was a wife, mother of five children, and a grandmother. The story of her heavenly vistations goes back to the year 1968 when St. Theresa, the Little Flower, appeared to her and gave her sacred writings by dictation.
Our Lady Herself appeared to Veronica in her home on April 7, 1970 informing her that She would appear on the grounds of the old St. Bellarmine Church in Bayside, Queens, New York on June 18, 1970; that vigils of prayer be held there, and that full directions be given to the clergy of the parish to prepare for Our Lady's first visit there. Our Lady also requested that a Shrine and Basilica be erected on this, Her chosen Sacred Site which is to be named " Our Lady of the Roses, Mary, Help of Mothers ". Although Veronica is no longer with us, Our Lord and Our Lady promised to come on the eve of the great feast days of the Church, during which Vigils are still held. A miraculous spring of water will erupt suddenly, like at Lourdes, to cure the ill.
DIRECTIVES ( Messages from Our Lord and Our Lady)
SATAN WALKS THE EARTH NOW ! ! !
" The major demon from hell, Satan, now has entered into the body of one in your country... The man of perdition (2 Thess. 2:3) is Satan-666- (Apoc./Rev/ 13:18) in the body of a human being.. He is roaming throughout states, making new covens of iniquity... He has entered into the schools; he is teaching the occult... He has great powers (the powers of hell), and will entice your children into the covens..."
THE BLESSED ROSE PETALS
Our Lady carries roses, sending petals down upon all, saying:
" I have used the petals of the roses as instruments, significant of the graces that I will bestow upon you. "
(Roses brought t o the vigils by kind and thoughtful souls to help decorate Our Lady's altar, are distributed to the people in attendance towards the end of the vigil. The rose petals are blessed by Jesus and Mary when they appear on the great feast day's of the Church. The rose petals should be dried for 3 days in a book, and then laminated. They are then to be given to the ill, the infirm, and all those in need of spiritual cures-- the unbelievers and those who have abandoned the practice of the Faith.
THE MEDAL OF OUR LADY OF THE ROSES
" Our arms send forth a shower of blessings upon you all at this moment of great joy to My Heart, the reception of the Medal of Our Lady of the Roses. I thank you, My children, for there are many surprises in store for you, that We give with glad Hearts in these dark days..." " Through this treasure 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! " -- February 11, 1971
WORLD WAR III
Our Lady showed Veronica in vision a map. Veronica saw Jerusalem and Egypt, Arabia, French Morocco, and Africa. OUR LADY--" O my children, the Great War, the war to end all wars...will bring a destruction to mankind far greater than any human eye has ever seen or experienced in the past, or will ever see or experience again in the future. If My Son had not promised to come among you in this great catasrophe, there would be no living flesh left. " ( The message says if there are not enough prayers, 3/4 of mankind will perish in the Chastisement. Only a few will be saved.)

!!!!!! THE GREAT WARNING IN '97 !!!!!!
(Taken from Rose Notes, Bayside Shrine Publication) (January, 1997)
BE READY NOW, "THE WARNING IN '97"
In the brilliant story of Bayside, the paramount prophesy of 25 years of messages is the visit of the great Warning and the great Chastsement upon the world. And if we do not learn from this Warning - a profound attempt by the Eternal Father to rescue His cherished creatures mired in sin - billions will perish (Our Lady, October 6, 1973).
At this point in time, it behooves us to finally release these critical unpublished locution - messages given to our beloved seer, Veronica Leukin of the Cross, that our readers might understand fully that this great day of reckoning is now at hand.
On Saturday, February 5, 1994, at 7:15 p.m., Shrine director, Michael Mangan, was speaking with Veronica on the telephone when Our Lady suddenly joined the conversation, as She often did throughout the years to dispense precious guidance and direction for which we are eternally grateful. The Virgin said in locution:
" THE WARNING IN '97 "
Being taken witha sense of caution and prudence over this delicate issue, Mr. Mangan immediately responded by asking if Our Lady was referring to A warning to come in '97, or if She was speaking of THE Warning. Our Lady said, " THE Warning " , Veronica repeated to Michael.
Hence, we see that Heaven arranged this little question/answer dialogue so that there will be absolutely no mistake in the minds of the faithful as to what Our Lady was talking about. For all Heaven wants it known at this time the great Warning spoken of through the ages will occur in the year 1997.
This is a worldwide cataclysm event predicted by little Jacinta Marto, the youngest of the child-seers at Fatima: " There is a secrtet of Heaven and another one of earth, and the latter is terrifying. It will seem as though it were already the end of the world. And in this cataclysm everything will be separated from the sky, which will turn white as snow."
If anyone has more questions about the great Warning, please e-mail me.
A unique phenomenon that occurs at the Shrine and apparition site of Our Lady of the Roses is the taking of miraculous photographs by the pilgrims attending the Vigils. Most, if not all pictures are taken with Polaroid or other instant self-developing cameras eliminating later accusation of tampering with negatives. Literally thousands of photos have been taken by infants, up to the elderly. A common occurance in a lot of pictures are Rosary bead patterns. One example of a miraculous photograph is shown at the bottom of this page. Here is an explanation:
" Jacinta 1972 "
" Within this photograph lies the date, the month, the hour, the year of the coming Chastisement. "
September 14, 1971... A man took a picture of Our Lady's statue with a Polaroid instant camera. The words " Jacinta 1972 " appeared on the picture in an eerie supernatural scrawl across the face of the picture.
" I ask that the photograph given from Heaven " Jacinta 1972 " be propagated, made known worldwide, for within this photograph lies the date, the month, the hour, the year of the coming Chstisement. Search it well my children, for those who have been given the grace will find the answer to this puzzle."
*** Our Lady's counsel to those who wish to be saved:
Live a life of prayer, penance, and sacrifice. Give up worldly living and amusements. Remain in your parish church as an example of truth and tradition. However, do not accept the modern changes which are from Satan. Receive the Eucharist daily if possible. Make frequent visits to the Blessed Sacrament. Pray the Rosary daily. Read the Bible (editions before 1964). Wear the Brown Scapular and other sacramentals. Spread the Message of Heaven, and await the return of Christ to earth, which will be soon.
The Blessed Mother instructed that Her messages be disseminated throughout the world. Signs are given to those who come in faith. Many miraculous photos have been taken by pilgrims during the Vigils using cameras producing on the spot ' tamper-proof ' developments. Rosaries have changed from a natural metallic color to a gold color, and in some cases to the actual substance of gold, the substance of gold having been verified by jewelers. Other miraculous phenomena observed by pilgrims during Vigils include the spinning sun like at Fatima and the flight of luminous doves. Numerous testimonials are presently available upon request.
The Blessed Mother requests the faithful to come in pilgrimage to join in the prayers at the Vigils and Holy Hours to petition Heaven for graces of conversion and cure for themselves and their families. Should it be impossible for you to come and pray and petition Our Lady yourself, then you may send your special private intention by mail or e-mail, and it will be placed at Our Lady's feet during the Vigil.
Our Lady has requested that rose petals blessed by Jesus on the Apparition grounds be distributed to the ill of body and those in spiritual need. The grace and power of conversion and cure is attached to these rose petals and all sacramentals brought onto the grounds to be blessed by Jesus and Mary. We invite you to take advantage of the graces offered to you by Jesus and Mary today.
