Eve of Easter Sunday
Events Following Jesus' Death
Veronica--It is cold and it is very damp. I see a hillside. There's a large hole--cave--in the side of the hill. Inside the cave there's a rock. The rock is very polished. It's like a slab. And lying on the rock is a figure. There's like sheeting wrapped about the figure, completely about, looking like, almost like a mummy.
Now I see that the hands are crossed across His chest, and they're bound tightly with the sheeting, but there's blood; there's blood seeping out on the sheeting. Oh-h-h!
(Veronica has difficulty in breathing and pain in describing the sorrowful scene).
Also His face is covered, and there's blood coming out of the top of His head on the sheeting. Oh-h-h! Now all about Him is a light; it's a very bright, white light.
Now next to Him is a large figure. The figure is very, very white and luminous...very bright. I can see it is an angel. And over to the left side it's very dark, but the light that's coming out from the figure of the angel lights up the whole inside.
It's a small area. It looks almost like a vault, because there are rocks placed up against the side of the walls. Oh!
Now over...I can't get out! There's a large rock. Now the opening...I'm inside and the rock's been placed up against the opening. Oh-h, oh-h, I hear voices outside the rock..sad voices.
Now I'm outside the rock, and I see Our Lady. She's bent forward, but She's being helped to Her feet by a man...he has on a brown robe..and there are two ladies. They're wiping their faces with their scarves from their heads. Now they've lifted Our Lady onto Her feet, and there She's walking quietly from the front of the entrance.
Now there's a lady, she's turning back and she's walking over to the entrance and she's throwing herself against the large rock. She's trying to pull it open. Now the top of her cape has fallen onto the ground at her feet. Her hair is very long. And she's now digging with her nails, trying to remove the rock. She's turning now and she's crying. She's crying, the tears are pouring down her face. Now she's walking over to the side...it's a hill..and she's sitting down now on a rock.
It's growing very, very dark. All about, I see the entrance stationed with lighted figures of angels. One is in front of the rock. He carries a large spear. It's Michael.
Now, oh! I see coming from the sky figures. They're dressed in purple robes. They're filing in front of the cave, the tomb.
The Prophet Isaias
Veronica in a state of ecstasy at a Bayside Vigil.
One of them is coming forward now from the group. He has in his hands a cloth; it's purple, almost black in color. And new he places it over his head. And he's holding up what looks like a golden candelabra; it has three candles on it. And now he's singing; it sounds like he's singing; but it sounds more like...his voice is like I never heard before.
(Veronica imitates the solemn lament with a strong voice.)
"Cover your heads in mourning.
Light your candles of prayer;
For the time has not come
For the light to enter into the world.
The Son of Man lied dead in the tomb,
A spotless Sacrifice for the sin of man."
Veronica--There is a man in a long, dark cape. He's placing what looks like a white scarf about his neck. Now he has on his head..it's a round hat, looks like a yarmulke, but it's red. And he's reading from a book and holding up his three fingers, the thumb and two fingers, like this. He looks like he's quite old. He says..he's writing over his head with his finger: I - S - I - A - S, I - S - I - A - S.
(Veronica repeats the letters.)
Isaias? Now he's looking down, and saying:
Isaias--"Never a bone in His body did they break."
Veronica--There is settling over the hillside...a very dark cloud.
I see a small....oh, it's a house, but it's made differently than our houses that we see. It looks more like, made of like clay, sort of, like mud. It's one large room, and over to the side of the room there are rocks piled. It must be where they cook.
Now I see a man. Oh-h! I know it's John. He's sitting at a table. The table doesn't look like what we have; it looks like the tree has been cut in half, the block and not the legs, for them. And it seems like there were notches cut in the block of wood, and a piece of wood hammered in to hold the leg onto the top of the table. I'm looking at it from the left side of the table onto the right.
Now Our Lady is sitting next to John by the table. And the other two ladies--one is older, and she's making something, some kind of broth, over by the rocks. And she's bringing it over now, and placing it in front of Our Lady. Our Lady is shaking her head, "No." She looks very sadly.
They're all alone. There's one, two, three, four..only four people in the room. Our Lady has Her hand now placed over Her heart, over Her heart. And Our Lady is saying to John:
Our Lady of Sorrows
Our Lady--"I could no longer suffer the sword in My heart, had I not known the plan of the Father for Me and My Son in the salvation of mankind. The promise of His return, made known to Me by the Father, is My hope. The loss, the anguish, the suffering of His torture has not been lessened by this knowledge."
Veronica--I see a large open place. There are many people milling about, running about. It has grown very dark. Ah! Ah! The thunder...it's like thunder, it's loud. Everyone is frightened. They're falling and they're running away! They're running away! Oh.
There are three crosses on the hill. Oh-h, oh-h.
(Veronica weeps and moans while describing the scene.)
Oh, the man on the left, he's tied, but ohhh, ohhh, there's a man, a soldier, he's got a big thing, looks like an ax. It's got..it's like a piece of rock tied on to a stick and he's hitting him in the legs with it!! And the man is crying, "Have mercy on me!" And he, the soldier, he's hitting him in his legs, crushing his bones; the blood is pouring out. Now the man on the left, his head has fallen forward. Oh-h!
Jesus Pierced in His Side
He's going over now...Oh-h, he's taking this wide stick, it has a point on the end.
(Veronica cries out in fearful anticipation.)
And now, he's...oh-h, oh-h, it's Jesus on the cross, and he pushed it into Him just above His stomach! Oh-h. Now he can't pull it out. He's being covered!...it's not blood, it's water. But he can't...he's running; he can't seem to wash it off his face. He's wiping his hands. It's over his hands; he can't get it off his hands.
Now the stick, the spear, is falling onto the ground. Oh. The man...there's another man..Oh.
He's over on the right side. Oh, he's gone, too. Oh. They've both left. The man over on the left, his legs are all crushed, the bone of his knee is now...you can see the bone of his knee coming out. Oh-h! He's suffering. Ah! He's on the right side of Jesus. He's looking over at Jesus. He says:
"I--I have Your promise and I will cleanse myself for You."
The Descent From the Cross
Veronica--Now it's very dark. There's no one on the hill. But I see there's a man...two men. They're carrying a ladder. Oh-h! And now Our Lady is there. It's very windy; Her dress is blowing very, very hard in the wind. It's raining now, it's raining. And the man is telling the two ladies to keep Her to the side.
Now they're going up and they're..they're putting this ladder up against the cross. Oh-h, oh-h, they're cutting with a knife the ropes on His wrist. And the man down at the bottom of the ladder...now he's going over, he's cutting the ropes at his ankles. Oh-h! They...oh-h! They can't remove the cross out of the hole. They can't get it up...up! They had to take Him forward from the cross.
The ladder is being brought over to the side. Now when the ropes were cut, He fell forward, and His fingers, bloodied, tore away from the wood. They're lifting Him down now. The man's holding the ladder and ...ah, ah! They're trying to take his feet out of the spike! Ah, ah, ah, ah. They're hitting it now; they got the wood..the wood; they're pushing it now out of the hole. They're holding Jesus and the cross fell down. And now they can hit from the under side. The spike's coming out. They're not tearing his feet..the hands had to be torn. Ah.
Oh, now the three ladies are rushing over. Now the man, he's now lifting Jesus up and Our Lady now is sitting on the ground. She has Jesus now, the blood is on Her gown, all on the front. She wants to remove the headpiece from His head, but She can't. It's in-n too deep! They have to...Ah, oh-h.
Jesus Laid in the Tomb
Now there's a man...he's walking up to Him. It's John now speaking with Our Lady; and they want Her to leave. Ah..She doesn't want to leave. Her hands are very bloody. She now places Her hand over Jesus' face, like this.
Now there's an older man. He's talking...it's John, I know John! The other man, he's talking with him, telling him to take the women away.
Now another old man has come. And the lady with the long hair is now speaking with Our Lady. And then another lady now is holding Our Lady's arm, and they're taking Her from the hill.
(Veronica utters plaintive moans.)
Now it's growing very light, and Our Lady is coming forward. She's dressed all in black, with a white trim around Her head. Our Lady wishes that I repeat Her words:
Our Lady--"My child, you see how deep is My sorrow, and how greater My sorrow knowing that your world has forgotten so soon. Was My loss, my suffering, in vain? Was My Son's suffering for you in vain?
"I have travelled many times about your world. Few have listened, preferring the ways of the world to the way of the Kingdom.
"Your world is progressing farther into the darkness. Unless there is a complete reversal in man's ways now, he cannot escape the Chastisement planned by the Father. The Father's mercy is great, but He looks down now upon an ungrateful generation. A generation that has forsaken His Son. The sacrifice of God for His children is repeated anew by the wanton actions of man now on earth. Man has chosen to give himself to satan.
"You will all go through a great crucible of suffering in the plan of the Father: the sheep shall be separated from the goats. I am truly the Mother of Sorrows.
"You must keep a constant vigilance of prayer upon earth now. Reparation, penance and atonement is all that will now lessen the Chastisement, which man will have brought upon himself and his world.
"The agents of hell roam throughout your world and have entered into the highest places of My Son's house. Recognize the faces of evil about you. Pray, pray for the light, and you will not be led into the darkness."
Veronica--(Veronica sees writing in the sky and spells out the letters.) J - A - C - I - N - T - A. Now they're fading out and there are numbers: 1 - 9 - 7 - 2 – 1 - 9 - 7 - 3. Now there's a large question mark, like this (?), next o the "3". Now that's fading out, like smoke being blown away. It was "Jacinta, 1972 – 1973", and then a large question mark.
The Warning to Mankind
...It's as though everything has exploded in the sky...the flash! And it's very hot! It's very wa-a-a-arm!! Oh-h! Oh-h! It feels like a burning! Oh-h! Now the sky is very white! Colors, blues, purples! It's like a huge explosion. Now this voice...the voice! And the voice, Our Lady says, is a voice within you:
Our Lady--"Your Warning before Chastisement! Flash, fire, and the voice within you! The final Warning before Chastisement.
Our Lady--"...On the meadow is a very holy place...My beloved child...
Our Lady--"...will see anew...beauty about him. There will come upon the world a glorious mystery. The Father is merciful to His children. He chastises those He loves.
"Many will see and yet not believe, crediting science for a phenomenon from the Father. Intellectual pride will be the downfall of many.
"The lilacs are in bloom. Gather the lilacs from the bush, and bring them to the shrine. For the present, My child, this will remain secret.
"Do not be surprised, for nothing is impossible with the Father. Have you not seen a small evidence of this in your photographic manifestations?
"My Son will be present to bless all sacramentals, with the lighting of the candles to herald His resurrection, and the glorious coming of redemption of man, and the opening of the Kingdom of Heaven to man. My Son has truly been the spotless Sacrifice, the most perfect Sacrifice for redemption of man."
Veronica--Our Lady is standing now by the left side of the flagpole. She's dressed in a very dark, oh, black, or dark blue gown. Now She has a veil, and it covers Her face; though it's transparent, because I can see Our Lady's face through the veiling. It covers Her face down to Her chest. She's holding Her hands in front of Her in prayer. Now She's bending over. She says:
Our Lady--"Continue, My children, with your prayers of atonement."
Veronica--Now I see five soldiers. They have on short dresses, but with metal sections coming down from the waist. And over their heads are metal hats, silver-colored metal hats that cut down to a V-shape on their foreheads. They're standing there by the rock with long spears in their hands.
Now they are going back; they're walking backwards in fright. They are frightened! They're walking backwards because there's a great light! It's seeping through the cracks. There's a great light. It's seeping through the cracks. And the light is pushing...pushing the rock forward. Now the rock is going over; the light is forcing the rock over to the side. The soldiers...two are running, running up the hill. One is covering his face with his arms; he can't look, the light is so bright.
Now coming through the light are two large figures. Beautiful! So large, beautiful! Oh-h! They're angels. I can't see their faces, but their...oh, they are so large! Now one is standing there. He's raising his hand. He says:
The Angel--"He is risen!"
Veronica--Now two soldiers...one now is getting up; he's running. And the other one is sitting there. He's fallen to the ground in shock. Oh-h! Inside the cave it's very bright...very bright!
I see now, the arm, oh-h, I see it..an arm. Oh-h! That slab...it has the cloth lying on the slab. And walking out through this tremendous light...it's Jesus! Oh! He's now coming out of the light, though; He's not glowing like inside the light by the cave.
Now He's coming out, and He's got slippers on His feet. And He now has a robe on Him; it's white. It's very soiled looking, but it's a white robe. And I notice these...bandages are hanging from the slab of rock onto the ground. The ground is dirt; it's just dirt on the ground inside the cave. I can see now, because the light now has left the cave. And Jesus now has started to walk. He's going up the hill; He's walking very slowly up the hill.
Mary Magdalen at the Tomb
And now...oh, there's a lady; she's coming down to the side of the cave. And she's looking in, and now she says, "Oh-h!"
And she runs over now and she's picking up the pieces of the cloth. And she's looking around the cave, and she's running out now.
And she's running up the hill. And she's running over...oh.
"Where have they taken him? They have stolen Him from us."
And she...now she's reaching out and she's fallen down on her knees and saying, "Please, where is He?"
Jesus--"Don't...do not place your hands upon My garments. I have not ascended in the Father."
Veronica--Now the lady is looking up, and she's smiling. And now Jesus is placing His hand over her head, and He says:
Jesus--"Go, Mary, and tell all what you have seen."
Veronica--Now Jesus is walking; He's climbing up the hill. And Mary now is...she's fallen on her face, just like she's praying. No...now she's getting up, and she's running down the hill. And I can see her...she's running down the hill now, and she's running towards these buildings. There are one, two...five buildings. They don't look like regular buildings; they look like houses made from clay, or like a hard, sort of like, clay. And she's now running into one.
Now it's getting very dark; I can't see anything. I can't...it's getting very dark. Ah, oh...oh....oh.
Oh, yes, I can see now Our Lady's full face. She said I can now remove my dark scarf and put on the colors of the resurrection, because it is almost the hour of twelve.
Jesus is coming forward. Oh! It's so brilliant. So beautiful! Ohhh! He's all bathed in white. Oh, He has on a white robe, and even His slippers are white. And, oh! The light is so bright, it bathes the whole area. And I can barely see the flagpole now, the light is so bright.
Now Jesus is smiling, and He's raising both His hands out. Oh, I can see the marks on His hands. Now He is placing His hands across His chest, like this, and He's raising His hand. Oh, now Jesus is coming over to the right side of the flagpole.
Jesus--"All objects of godly nature will be blessed for the propagation of My Mother's work and mission on earth. I now bless you and dispense among you the graces for conversion and cure."
Veronica--Now Jesus is raising His hand, with His fingers like this, and He's making the sign of the Trinity:
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Jesus is coming over. Oh, He's just about...oh, He's coming down now. Oh-h! Oh. Now...to raise all your crucifixes, Jesus said, your Rosaries, your cards, your medallions. Now Jesus is raising His hand high above His head:
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Now Our Lady...Our Lady now...oh, She's no longer in Her black dress. She has a beautiful white gown on, and it's all trimmed in gold. Now, the gold goes all about Our Lady's garment from the hem; it completely surrounds Her head. And She has now a garland of roses about Her head...oh, right over the gown. And Our Lady is smiling now, and She's following Jesus.
Now Jesus is coming over to the left side of the flagpole. Now He's raising His hand in front of Him now, this way,..and..oh, He's blessing with His three fingers:
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
And He's looking over now, Jesus, to the tree, and down now, and He's raising His hand above His head:
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
Now over to...oh, right beyond the flagpole, they're coming down. Oh, oh, they look like children. They're very small. Now they're dressed in all colors of the rainbow. Beautiful! They're little angels, but they look like children. And they're wearing garlands of roses about their hair.
And now they are holding in front of them...oh, it's a rope-like, oh, but it's a Rosary. It's Our Lady's Rosary made of flowers, garlands of roses. And the Rosary...oh! the cross is just like our cross. And now they're holding it way out. Now they're bringing it around behind Our Lady and Jesus.
And now Jesus is smiling. And it is a little windy because His robe is blowing...and Our Lady's gown too. Now Our Lady is showing me Her...oh, Her slippers. They're golden; they're golden slippers, and they have roses right at the instep. They're very pretty slippers.
Oh, oh! Now Jesus is coming over and, oh, I don't know if I should repeat it. Oh?...in my own words.
Jesus said that the work will continue for His Mother's mission on earth. The darkness is very deep. And We are preparing you for your destiny and the crucible of suffering which is unavoidable due to man's regression, and turning from the truth of life and light. Now, Jesus now is, oh, He's pointing to His chest, and He says:
Jesus--"You will all come to me in belief, and protect yourselves with the rays from My most merciful heart."
Veronica--Now it's very, very bright. Now Our Lady said that we can rise. It will no longer be necessary to kneel; we can rise. Oh.
Now Jesus, now He is...oh! the cross! I'll extend the cross. Oh! And Jesus is blessing the cross. Oh, and, of course, all sacramentals are blessed. Ah, yes,
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Oh, now Jesus, now, is...now He's going back; He's floating backwards. And Our Lady is now coming forward now, and Michael is with Her. And oh! There are...oh, the sky is just filled with all those beautiful little angels in their different colored gowns. Oh, it's just beautiful! It's like a May Day; it's like a beautiful festival! Oh, the colors are beautiful; pinks and blues and yellows. And the rose petals around their hair; some are yellow, and others are red and a very light, pale pink. Oh, all the glorious colors! It's just like...now as the light is shining, it's almost like the sunrise. Oh, the light is becoming very bright. Now...Jesus now is over to the left side of the flagpole. And Our Lady says,
Our Lady--"You have lighted your candles with Us. Now do take
them through the darkness and recover your brothers."

Beads Change to Gold
The first night [at the Bayside Vigil] I had these beads in my pocketbook. I was praying on another pair of beads. This was the very first time at a Vigil. The next day, while at home, I looked at the beads and while I was looking at them, they started to turnthe chain was turning link by link to gold. I took them to work and showed them to everybody there because I couldn't get over it myself. After they all turned, each time that I took them to the Vigil they got brighter and brighter.
