Dearest Our Lady of the Roses Workers

I thought I would write and let you know that my son is now clean of drugs and is trying really hard to put his life back in order. He carries one of the petals that you sent me and I am teaching him how to pray. He had really given up on this world. I am so happy to have my son back. He has made peace with all the people that he hurt through his drug abuse, especially his dad. (Who had found him overdosed and minutes from death).

He has one last ordeal to go through and I ask for prayers for him that it goes in his favour.

Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers has been so kind to me in granting my prayers. I am so humbled.

I prayed the rosary to Our Lady for my friend who was desperate to have a baby and she is now 4 months preganant.

Our handicapped son, Kevin, suffers from epilepsy and has suffered sporadically with an eating disorder for some time now. Since we put a rose petal from your site under his mattress, he has improved greatly and is so much happier, loving and alert. All we can offer is a profound thank you to our Blessed Mother Mary and her loving son, Jesus.

May God bless you all for these wonderful changes in our lives. We are very, very grateful.

I have thoroughly enjoyed browsing this excellent page and have found it is having a profound affect on my out look and thinking.

I have requested the info pack, Petals, and Medals.
The reading I have done on the DIRECTIVES have really opened my eyes and have caused me to think more deeply into the my own personal relationship with Our Lady.

Keep up the good work, and I look forward to many future visits to the web site.

God Bless

Today started off with a very special blessing ... a visit to your web site - www.roses.org! It brought tears to my eyes!

I feel very unworthy asking for a Roses medal, but would you please send one?

Thank you, and God bless!

Subject: The apparitions and messages at Bayside

I first came across your web via a web-site entitled Catholic Apparitions of Jesus and Mary. It was reported on the page that the Bayside Apparitions were discouraged by the Church and so by curiosity I went to look.

At that moment I knew for a lot of time about the Medjugorje apparitions; they too have got a lot of criticisms from the local bishop, nevertheless I did believe in these apparitions maybe also thanks to the books (translated in dutch) of Rene Laurentin and Sister Emmanuel. I also have heard about apparitions of Our Blessed Mother at Kibeho in Rwanda, In Argentina and at Finca Betania in Venezuela.

I knew of some earlier prophesies (Fatima, etc.) about the time we live in. I was at that time already "converted" and back in the Church. I found the Church in great distress : all bishops in Belgium who remained silent about abortion, homosexuality, perverted heterosexuality etc.

This was clearly not the Church I knew from my youth ( I am 46 years old now). Amazingly, enough discussion with people busy in the parish and other people in charge of teaching Catholicism gave me the idea that there are only a "few" believers left. So I began to try to come in contact with them.

So when I came on this website, discarding the negative advice of the local bishop, and after reading the messages,I couldn't find anything against the official teaching of my beloved Church. On the CONTRARY: all messages breathed the teachings of the Church of my youth. Also I believe the Truth is eternal : one cannot teach now the contrary of what was regarded as true some 35 years ago.

Another interesting fact of the messages was that they [The Bayside Messages] seem to complete with amazingly detail other prophecies (see Fatima, Garabandal, Saint John Don Bosco, and some other mystics).

I profoundly believe now that we are living the end of the End Times as described in the Apocalypse.

I wear my brown scapular (and believe completely the promise) and I also pray the 15 prayers of Saint Bridget of Sweden. Thanks also to other websites (see "Behold the Lamb of God") I can better believe in the real presence of Our Lord in every Consecrated Host. I hope there will come a time that the faithful will be able to adore at any time Jesus, our King, in the Eucharistic Host in every parish church.

Ave Maria,
I'm responding to your invitation on the WWW for the information package and the rose petal.
I first came across your web address months ago on a page entitled Catholic Apparitions of Jesus & Mary. It was reported on the page that the Bayside Apparitions were discouraged by the Church so I didn't bother to look.
Last week I was at an international trade expo and there was an internet stand. On an impulse I ran "Catholic" as a search string and one of the search results that came back was the Bayside Apparitions. It was of sufficient interest to me to scribble down the page address. When I got back to the office and had a bit of time, I accessed the page containing the directives.
To say I was stunned is to put it mildly, every single thing that has been seriously bothering me was addressed clearly and unambiguously, from these "ministers of the Eucharist" to Vatican II. I have been seriously considering leaving the Church and going the Traditional route. As sure as sure can be, I was guided by Our Lady to these pages in answer to the doubts that have been plaguing me about the Church.
My problem has not been my faith, but rather how the Church has been measuring up. To give you an example, about a month ago there was an anti-abortion march in Pretoria. I found it pretty shattering that only 1,500 people bothered to show, and of this, there were a mere handful of Catholics. The clergy was represented by three or four nuns and two Franciscan monks.
I have no doubt as to the authenticity of these locutions, and if there is any way I can assist, please let me know.
In His Love

We are so pleased to see the web site up and running! My husband
and I have been attending the vigils at Bayside since 1981.
Needless to say we deeply believe in the messages given by Jesus
and Our Blessed Mother to our sister Veronica Lueken.
Veronica's passing was a great loss to everyone. We feel that this
means the coming events heralding the second coming of Our Lord
will be accelerated.
Please keep up the good work. There are many thousands of faithful
followers of Bayside. This site is a great addition to the printed
messages already in circulation. Thank you again.

My wife and I are assisting organizers here in San Diego and we heard on the tape about placing the messages on the net, so I decided to check it out. It looks pretty good and I will tell all my friends to visit the site.

God Bless you on your good works.

Dear Roses.org,

Thank you for your wonderful web site! I'm writing because I wanted to know if there is anything I can do to help out.

I have a monthly mailing to all my members and have just recently started including messages from Bayside, NY & making available the Blessed Rose Petals, medals, and other sacramentals from the Our Lady of Roses Shrine.

If there is anything else I can do to help out, please let me know!
