Ann Ferguson's letter of January 8, 1997: No dates will be given  


"My Son, the Eternal Father, and the Spirit have deemed the time, the places, and the hour for the final battle. No dates will be given to you, My child, to give to the world. Preparedness--be ready at all times, for you do not know the day nor the hour. I have promised that you would not meet your trials without warning or knowledge. Those who have given themselves to the Eternal Father in Heaven in love and dedication will find that they will go through these trials and survive in spirit and body much better, My child, than those who have rejected the light." - Our Lady, May 17, 1975 


When the Shrine office leadership began publicizing their own personal interpretations that directly contradicted Our Lady of the Roses messages, Ann Ferguson, Veronica's secretary and friend, was having none of it. Her letter of January 8, 1997 is as pertinent today as it was in 1997.



January 8th, 1997
Re-Released on November 27th, 1997

Dearest Friends of Our Lady of the Roses;

There has been growing interest among the faithful followers of Bayside regarding the timing of some of the prophetic world events which are to take place. (The Warning, WWIII, The Ball of Redemption) We should all remember that Our Lady and Our Lord were very explicit in their messages that we should not speculate on dates of upcoming events, but to be constantly prepared spiritually, through prayer, penance and atonement, and through reading, re-reading and acting on the past messages given.

In the message given on November 20th, 1976 Our Lord Jesus Christ said:

"I will not encourage you to speculate on dates; it is not necessary. I do not expect the sheep to come running for a short respite from the evil and their sins. It must be a permanent turning away from the evil, My children. Therefore, there will be no dates given, for what would there be to gain if you know the date and you come and change so that you will be ready, where your heart does not carry a true conversion?"

"Live your life, My children, day by day as though the end were at hand. You will not be caught unawares if you remain with Me in My houses throughout the world. The message from Heaven has not been given to you to promote fear in your hearts but to bring you to the reality of what is to come upon mankind."

In the message given on December 24th, 1973 Our Lady said:

"My child, many ask you for dates, for times. It is not necessary that you know dates, but to be prepared."

In the message given on April 13th, 1974 Our Lady said:

"There have been upon earth many voices heard in Heaven, voices of speculation. Dates are not necessary, My child, what need is there for dates, but that you be prepared at all times? Were I to give you a date, mankind would turn and mend their ways, but of what actual value would this be to the souls of mankind? For when the danger to his human nature is over, he will return to his sinful ways. No, My child, I shall not give dates, I shall tell you to be prepared at all times. This assurance I give to my children of the light; they will not be caught unprepared, for I have promised to be with you through the battle ahead."

In the message given on September 14th, 1976 Our Lord Jesus Christ said:

"I have asked you many times not to speculate on dates, but I give you one indication that the time is ripe. When you see, when you hear, when you feel the revolution in Rome, when you see the Holy Father fleeing, seeking refuge in another land, know that the time is ripe."

Please remember again that Our Lady and Our Lord have asked us to read and reread all past messages, pray for the light of understanding and the path will be given to us. Ask and the way shall be shown to us.

If you would like additional information, please feel free to write, call or email us at the shrine.

In Our Lady of the Roses, Mary, Help of Mothers and Veronica of the Cross,


Mrs. Ann Ferguson

Veronica's former Secretary


"My child and My children, do not waste valuable time speculating on dates or the methods of the Eternal Father, but be prepared at all times, for the first great trial is coming upon you, and it will come when you least expect it. Do not become prideful in this knowledge, My children, for those who are given much--much, far much is expected of them. It truly rains teardrops from Heaven.
    "The Message from Heaven will be given to all mankind. Convert the unbeliever. Do not compromise the Faith, but convert the unbeliever. Do not be joined unevenly; do not be unevenly yoked with unbelievers and heretics, for one bad apple may destroy the crate." - Jesus, June 18, 1979
