Veronica Lueken, (1923-1995), also known as "The Seer of Bayside", was a wife and mother of five children, She gave up her soul to God August 3rd, 1995 at the age of seventy-two. She was a most priviledged soul, having been entrusted with perhaps the most important revelations in the annals of Church History.

The story of her heavenly visitations began in 1968 when St. Theresa, the "Little Flower", appeared and directed her to record her poems and spiritual writings.

Our Lady herself 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, Queens, New York, on June 18th, 1970; that vigils of prayer be held there (now temporarily held at the Vatican Pavilion site in Flushing, Queens, New York), and that full directions be given to the local parish clergy to prepare for Our Lady's first visit there. Our Lady also requested that a Shrine and Basilica be erected on this this Her chosen sacred site which is to be named "Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers". Our Lady promised to come on the great feast days of the Church. The Blessed Mother further instructed Veronica to diseminate the messages given to her throughout the world.

Our Lady requested that the Rosary be recited for the duration of the Vigil. On all Vigils when Veronica was present a message was given to her from Heaven, either from Our Lady, Jesus or on occassion a powerful Saint from Heaven. The messages were repeated word for word by Veronica. She also gave a very detailed description of what she saw. All was recorded on cassette tape.

Even though Veronica is no longer present with us, Our Lady promised to be with us until the Second Coming of Her son; so the miraculous cures, conversions and photographs as well as the Vigils of prayer and atonement continue to this very day on the eve of the great feast days of the Roman Catholic Church from 7:30p.m. to 10:30 p.m. at the Vatican Pavillion Site in Flushing Meadows, Corona Park, borough of Queens, New York City, New York.

All are welcome to attend these vigils. ..
