June 18, 1970 Bayside Message•Apparitions of the Virgin Mary to Veronica Lueken Part 1

“My tears fall upon you...  
           So Many Souls Will Be Lost”

April 7, 1970
Veronica received a locution from Our Lady — words heard in the intellect, but without actually seeing Her—announcing that She would come to Her chosen sacred grounds at the old Saint Robert Bellarmine Church on the eve of all feast days, and directed that a sanctuary be built there, to be called Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers.

Veronica playing hymns on a tape recorder at beginning of the early Vigils on original grounds at St. Robert Bellarmine Church in Bayside, N.Y. Veronica was given directives for its construction, and was told she should speak with the clergy and ask them to prepare for Our Lady's first visit to Her sacred grounds, which would occur on June 18, 1970

June 18, 1970

First visit of Our Lady at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers.
Our Lady spoke to Veronica in locution, and said:


Our Lady —“My tears fall on you.” [At this point Veronica broke into tears.]

“Pray, My children. So many souls will be lost. It is because I love you that I come.”

“You will have to suffer, My child. Cry with Me, My child, for I have never stopped crying.” [Veronica continued crying.]


“So many souls will be lost. Listen to Me! Pray, please pray! There is hope in prayer.”

“The darkness grows deeper. I carry the light.... Much to suffer. Listen to Me!” [Our Lady wept bitterly.]

“Pray! Pray! Pray! Love Him. Love My Son; do not hate My Son.”

Our Lady then asked Veronica to repeat the poetic message given to her by Saint Theresa in 1969:

All hearts must ascend in true supplication
To avoid the sad fate of divine devastation.
Dear Holy Mother, our Mother of love,
Does beg us to heed these dire words from above:
His heart is torn by careless surrender
Of too many souls that don't try to remember
The Father, the Son, the Spirit of life,
Smite in the heart with the human knife
Of hate, greed, avarice, vanity
All indications that sin is insanity!


Our Lady's statues are miracously weeping tears, some even tears of blood, throughout the world.

“Pray; pray always, because so many souls will be lost. I have come to save you. Turn back! Turn back!
