#167 - THE FAMILY - PART 1
"The future of humanity passes by way of the family." - Familiaris Consortio, Pope John Paul II, November 22, 1981
"The strength for souls will be found in the family circle." - Our Lady, December 31, 1972
INSTITUTE FAMILY PRAYER
"Confusion, confusion! All about Us We see confusion and the conditioning of errors. Family prayer must be instituted in the home. If you do not ask for the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you, too, will walk the road of error." - Our Lady, December 25, 1971
ONE GLORIOUS FAMILY
"In Our Heaven, there is but one glorious family. In Heaven all are brothers and sisters. Why, then, must you fight over body color, body dressing, body wealth? What does it avail you to squabble and fight for something you will leave behind when you come before Us? Work now, My children, not to dress your body but to feed your soul. And many are starving.
"Yes, you are all brothers and sisters, and as such, you have one bond in common with your God: that is love. And if you know the true meaning of love, you will reach out and save your brothers and your sisters." - Our Lady, December 25, 1971
FIRMNESS IS NEEDED
"I am a man of few words, preferring to stand behind my Son. But I do feel great sorrow for the state of man on earth and his family life. The family that does not pray together can not stay together, for prayer chases the demons from the household. Why has man no longer chosen to bless his home with sacramentals and the waters?
"I wish that all fathers of households stand forth and practice their role. They will use the rod and not permit their children to go astray. Firmness is needed in your world that is filled with laxity, permissiveness, and degradation.
"Your children have been misled by many who shall answer to the Father. As teachers they have failed in their role. Therefore, as parents you must succeed in yours.
"The greatest detrimental factor in the family and home is the desire for the material. Better that you live in the gardens and fields with the nourishment of manna from Heaven, than to be filled with the abominations of the world." - St. Joseph, March 18, 1973
RECOVER THE PEACE
"In your world today that has been caught in the snare of the wiles of satan, many families are heading to oblivion, disintegration, and destruction. The forces of evil, the agents of 666, have now infiltrated into the very heart of mankind: the home, the family.
"O My children, if you could only recover the peace and quiet of spirit that was once much evident in your homes and now has been replaced by all manner of creations of satan, creations that distract the minds of the innocent, creations that have taken the knowledge of their God from the children, while fathers and mothers are lost as they run to and fro gathering all the material wealth upon earth, seeking pleasures that are soul destroyers, and setting an example that can be and lead to an abomination within the family circle.
"The parents, the mother and the father, My children, must set a firm example to their children. When these children leave the family's home, they are subjected to all trials of error, deception, delusion, and lies." - Our Lady, July 24, 1976
THE GREAT FOUNDATION
"Pray constantly your Rosary, your beads of prayer to Heaven. Remain unified in your family lives. The institution of your country--the great foundation is based on family life. Destroy the family and you destroy your country. The enemies--the enemy is already within your country. Watch and pray well, My children." - Our Lady, June 18, 1980
DEDICATION TO ETERNAL FATHER
"The foundation for a young life is found in the family. We find much lacking in the example of many parents. They have forgotten their role as parents, and they are feeding their children well with the contaminating abundance of your nation and the world; however, their souls are being starved for the light.
"The role for the prosperity within a family is simple, My child. It is one of a dedication to the Eternal Father. What does it matter, My children, if you gain the whole world's goods and suffer the loss of your eternal soul? Your pilgrimage is but a short one upon earth. Have you stored your reward with Us, or have you given yourselves to the pleasures of the flesh and satan?" - Our Lady, March 18, 1975
HAVE YOU PREPARED?
"Have you, as parents, prepared your family? Have you set your household in order?
"I have asked you to place in your homes the Book of life and love, your Bible. Parents, you must read this to your children, for they shall not receive the knowledge of their God outside of your door. The teachers have given themselves to the world." - Our Lady, August 14, 1975
"Evil creations from hell--all manner of abominations are entering into the homes of your nation and the countries throughout the world. It will be an absolute necessity now for all parents to act as a director, a leader in the homes. The greatest attack from satan shall be upon family life. If you break down the family, you will break down the nation." - St. Joseph, March 15, 1978
RETIRE AS A FAMILY UNIT
"Each family that wishes to be saved must now retire as a family unit from the world which has now been given to satan. Guard the souls of the ones you love. Satan sends his agents among you with cunning. You must always watch. Many parents are leading their children on the road to damnation by their example, by their permissiveness, and by their laxity." - Our Lady, July 15, 1972
SO MUCH DISCORD
"Children of the world, there is so much discord among families. There is so much deterioration among families. This is not a good sign. The family unit must be together under the true sign of the living God. Mothers and fathers have a great responsibility for their children. You who spend your hours, so few upon earth, giving your children their bodily delights, their materialistic wishes and pleasures, while their souls are starving and they are being led on the path that will take them farther from the Kingdom. Sin, the darkest of sins, are being committed in the homes. What example as parents are you showing to your children?" - St. Joseph, December 30, 1972
TRUTH, FAITH, TRADITION
"The children must be guided by the family. The truth, the Faith, the Tradition must be instilled in their hearts by the mothers and fathers of a family. Do not expect your children to go beyond your doors and be instructed in truth, for the world has been given to satan. Many who should be showing a firm and true example have gone the easy way of the flesh, for they care more for the treasures and glory of this world, earth, than what the future has for them." - Our Lady, December 6, 1975
CLEANSE YOUR HOMES
"We look into many homes and we find no close bond of unity. And why? Because you prefer to keep a diabolical machine in your homes, those televisions! These, my children, are all creations of satan. The family does not pray together. The mother does not bring the knowledge of God to her children. The father seeks his way in the world, gathering money and material things that are all passing.
"Cleanse your homes! Start anew! Work together for your reward in the eternal Kingdom. Your homes must be now a fortress against the evil that surrounds you." - St. Joseph, March 18, 1976
FAMILY IS DISINTEGRATING
"Penance, atonement, and sacrifice, My children, I beg of you! The family is disintegrating; there is no discipline. I hear the word 'love' expounded throughout your earth in all medias. But love has been lost!
"We watch as many are selling their souls to get to the head, not caring about the day, the night, the hour when they must come across the veil and account for their actions upon earth: their sins of commission, their sins of omission.
"Parents, you have a major responsibility now to save your children. The young are the major victims now in a world that has been taken over by satan and his agents." - Our Lady, August 14, 1979
"It is only because there are not enough prayers that there is discord and broken homes." - Our Lady, December 28, 1974
"We are quite pleased with the words the Spirit sent unto man that the family that prays together will stay together, My child. No truer a message was ever coined. The family that prays together will stay together." - Our Lady, June 18, 1974
"A family that prays together will stay together! Without God in your home there will be separation and discord. A home in this fight with Lucifer cannot survive without prayer and dedication to your God." - Our Lady, June 18, 1979
GUARD THE YOUTH
"My children, guard the youth. Protect your family now, and you will not have your heart torn in the near future. There is much discord now, My children. We observe in family life a disunity which is not good. There must be discipline by the father and the mother. Faith shall be your beacon. Faith shall make you victorious. Believe, and you will be given the way." - Our Lady, September 13, 1978
HEAD OF THE HOUSEHOLD
"My child, you will make it known to mankind that the head of an earthly family is the father. The Father Eternal will guide the father, the head of the household.
"A woman of earth shall not cast aside her role as mother and housekeeper. In her role as mother, she shall be the guardian of her children's souls and a helpmate of her husband, and a guardian also of his earthly soul and the soul eternal. By her example in her household, she has the power, as woman, for good or evil. She shall stay in her home and guide her children." - St. Joseph, July 15, 1975
"My child and My children, listen to Me carefully. Guard your children and those in your family with your sacramentals: the Rosary, if you have no other sacramental; until you receive a brown scapular and a crucifix, place a Rosary about your children's necks. They must be guarded in these dire times." - Our Lady, October 2, 1987
"My child and My children, you must pray constantly. The sound of prayer is like cymbals clanging through their ears, and they must turn and flee from you. So you must keep a constant vigilance of prayer going throughout your life. Your station in life means nothing. You must pray, for you will lose everything--your station, your home, your children, your lives.
"O My child, if only I could come with words of cheer. But can I deceive you? I am not the deceiver; I must tell you the truth. And the only way you can protect yourselves and your family is by knowing the truth." - Jesus, June 30, 1984
BACKGROUND STORY – “The Lourdes of America”
Veronica Lueken, the seer of Bayside, was a wife and mother of five children. She went to her eternal reward on August 3rd, 1995. St. Theresa the Little Flower promised to greet her with a bouquet of red roses when she arrived in heaven.
Our Lady appeared to Veronica in her home on April 7, 1970, informing her that She would appear on the grounds of the old St. Robert Bellarmine Church in Bayside on June 18, 1970; that vigils of prayer be held there (now temporarily held at the Vatican Pavilion Site in Flushing Meadows Park), 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.” She promised to come on the eve of the great feast days of the Church. The Blessed Mother also instructed Veronica to disseminate the message given to her throughout the whole world.
Our Lady has requested that the Rosary be recited aloud by the crowd during the whole of the Vigil. All are requested to kneel in the presence of Jesus. The Message was repeated word for word by Veronica. Veronica also described what she saw. All has been recorded on audio tape.
