The Virgin Mary of Bayside, New York and Lucifer


I have expended a lot of energy on previous blogs demonstrating the alleged Blessed Virgin Mary’s rise to power and influence from the 1500’s to today. I blogged about the profound differences in personality, method of operation, and theology between Bayside Mary and Medjugorje Mary. I’ve suggested that none of these Marys were the mother of Jesus, but were a demonic manifestation and deception associated with UFO technology.

In this post I’m going to suggest that Bayside Mary is actually Lucifer himself. Please understand, I am NOT bashing the Catholic Church, but I am saying that it has been seduced by a charming, cunning, convincing phantom, one that knows exactly how to push buttons, manipulate, play on emotions, sentiment, beliefs, and fears, and how to create drama and crisis in order to push the hesitant over the edge toward compliance. The Catholic Church should have known better, but ‘Mary’ is really good at what she does. She has snookered devout children, committed adults, men, women, priests, bishops, popes, lay people, some Protestants, and godly Catholic theologians.

It has taken me about three years of study on the topic to finally come to a firm enough opinion to openly call a spade a spade. And in my book ‘Mary’ is the paranormal Queen of spades.

It’s important to understand that when one is actually seeing a ghost, demon, alien, or biblical personality, what you see is not necessarily what you get. A good example is found in Derrell Sims’ book Alien Hunter, p. 252 (also see my post from 2012 “What Aliens Really Do”). Sims counseled a male abductee who was being pressed to do something he found repugnant. The beautiful female entity appealed to him in a sweet voice until he resisted a little too long. Then she morphed into a familiar male alien who began to inflict pain on his victim. The lesson there is that sweet Mary may not be a female entity at all. The beautiful garments, the motherly voice, the crown with stars, etc. could all be a screen.

I found myself so overwhelmed by the thousands of messages on the website for Bayside, NY (www.tldm.org) that I ordered the whole series of locutions in a six-volume set. I may be plodding my way through these six books until I’m 85. As of now, I’m only into Volume 1, 1970 to 1973, and I’m about halfway through. What I have already read is both riveting and appalling. Below are some samples of BM’s declarations in the first part of Volume 1, representing about 1 year. There just wasn’t space for more in this brief essay.

The Eagle

The eagle is plucked. He will not rise again. [July 15, 1970]
Veronica saw in vision the eagle [the U.S.]. It was most frightening, for the eagle was a blackened, charred skeleton. [Sept. 7, 1970]

This is a repeated theme with Bayside Mary. The U.S. is seen repeatedly as plucked, flattened, charred, and defeated. If we say our Rosaries, we might survive beneath her mantle.

The Chastisement, Also Called the Ball of Redemption, a Comet That Will Hit the Earth

I saw men, women, and children all rushing panic stricken along a road, fleeing some devastation of horror…Along the roadways I saw blackened bodies, charred bodies! I screamed, “No! No! Save us, Mother of God! Please save us!”  [Aug. 14, 1970]
I have come to warn you, My children. The hour grows short. I roam the nations crying for souls, for the Chastisement is imminent. Repent! A blackened moon…a bleeding sun…holes in the earth…high waves…screaming voices…all quiet…cities leveled. [Sept. 7, 1970]
I saw large ocean waves, extremely high--at least twelve feet, along the coast. The huge waves arose very high. Large holes and wide cracks appeared in the earth. I could see tall buildings seemingly drop into these holes. It was most frightening.  [Dec. 26, 1970]

BM specializes in terrifying threats and images, just as abusive parents do and as aliens do to their abductees. Aliens feed on victim emotions, and the horrendous threat frightens many of us into thinking that we need their help to survive as a planet.

If mankind rejects Mary and her Son, life on earth as we know it will end. Earth is going to be struck by a comet which would kill millions. Mary wails repeatedly throughout the decades about the millions of souls that will fall into hell when it hits. Jean Dixon, a Catholic seeress, made a similar prediction and put the date at 1985. In fact, if Earth were hit by a comet or planetoid, all life on earth could end. That prediction was 43 years ago.

The Power of the Rosary to Protect, Save Souls, and Repel Darkness

My Rosary will be the light of the world. [July 1, 1970]
My Rosary can hold back the darkness. My Rosary can reach out and save those souls already going down to the abyss. [Aug. 5, 1970; Sept. 14, 1970]
Keep your Rosary about your neck-- not for decoration, but to pray, to have it always with you.
Pray always. Save souls, your Rosary in your hands.  [Sept. 7, 1970]
Those who remain true to My Rosary will not be touched by the fires. [Oct. 6, 1970]

Thus, we participate in the salvation of souls, using the Rosary as a tool. This has NO foundation in the Bible. We actually should never cease to pray for the unbeliever, but this statement exalts the Rosary as a tool to make that happen, putting Mary in the front and removing the work of the Holy Spirit and the grace of God from the process.

Mary commands, begs, pleads for her children to wear scapulas and medals (designed by herself and revealed to various saints to glorify herself, p.24) as well as a St. Benedict medal and Rosaries around the neck at all times because agents of Satan are everywhere. The implication is that our Baptism, our walk with God, and our faith in Jesus Christ is insufficient to protect us when doom hits and evil walks the streets. Very few Catholics wear Rosaries and scapulas around their necks. I recall a season in my life when I wore one. Since the talismans were for putting the wearer under Mary’s protection, I guess we Protestants and adherents of every other religion would burn up and be one of the millions falling into the abyss.

The Antichrist

Mary claims repeatedly that the Antichrist, the man of perdition is in America and Armageddon is at hand, p. 39, 54, 55, 76. He will proceed on into Egypt and Israel and will bring Russia from the North. [Feb. 1, 1971] Like a classic cult leader, Mary tells her followers to wear their sacramentals and bar their doors against any people that they don’t know.

Remember January 21, 1971. This was the day, My children, when the man of perdition came to your city and entered your church.  [Feb. 11, 1971]
Keep the armor on you--your Rosary, your crucifix around your neck, or you, too, will receive the stamp of the man of perdition…Armageddon! Armageddon!  [May 30, 1971]
 
Compare Mary’s armor to Ephesians 6 in which the followers of Christ put on the armor of God. To suggest another armor is to promote another gospel! And Paul the Apostle tells us that only demons will do that, (2 Corinthians 11:4). So who actually was the Antichrist? Maybe he was abducted in Egypt and never got to Israel.

Later in the volumes, Mary will wail that the Antichrist and the forces of 666 are actually in the Vatican. She doesn’t seem to be pointing to any of the popes, except of course, the evil anti-pope planned to replace Paul VI, who will be incapacitated or killed.

Mary as Co-Redemptress

Remember, My children, Heaven and earth will pass away--all will be as white. But I hold the key to the Kingdom given by My Son. No one will come to the Father but through My Son. Stay under My mantle, My children, you will find peace. Reject Me or My Son, and the end of life as you know it will be hastened.  am the Advocate of peace, the Mediatrix between God and man, abundant with graces for the asking. I am now the guardian of the cross. I stand beneath the cross; I shed My blood beneath the cross.  [Sept. 7, 1970]
As My Father’s Advocate from Heaven, I tell you that your days are counted. Your country as you know it will be destroyed.  [Apr. 10, 1971]

In these statements, Mary has usurped six titles and descriptors of Jesus Christ, the very things that make Him the Savior/Redeemer. In the Bible, Jesus has been given the keys of the kingdom (Rev. 1:18; 3:7). In Rev. 9:1 a fallen angel was given a key “to the shaft of the abyss.” Perhaps this is the key that BM was given. We are sheltered beneath the Father’s wing, and Jesus is the one who gives us peace, (John 14:27). He is our Advocate before the Father (1 John 2:1). He is the Mediator between God and man, (1 Timothy 2:5), and Jesus alone shed the blood that atones for sin. Mary’s blood is not required, thank you. Mary has inserted herself between mankind and Jesus, the first line in the salvation process. She has gradually replaced our need for Him. And Catholics think they are not actually worshiping Mary!

Mary’s Immaculate Heart

Resist the knife that threatens to cut Holy Church asunder, for my Immaculate Heart will triumph over all evil. [Aug. 14, 1970]

Mary would have her followers commit their lives as they rise in the morning and as they go to bed at night to the protection of her Immaculate Heart. There is so much more to say about this, but I did cover the subject in my other Marian posts.

Mary’s Title as Light Bearer

Candles must be carried at all vigils, to be lighted at the time of twelve to herald the new day of the Feast. As candles are lighted, this prayer is to be said,

Mary, Light of the world, pray for us!
Our Lady of the Roses, pray for us!
Mary, Help of Mothers, pray for us!

Over and over again.  [June 19, 1970]

At the first publication of these blasphemous statements, Pope Paul VI should have had his representatives contact Veronica and commanded her to stop. The Gospels clearly tell us that Jesus Christ is the Light of the world (John 1:4,5). We should pray to the Father in His Name. There is no other Name by which we may be saved (Acts 4:12). But who could resist Mary, Lady of the Roses and the Help of Mothers. It sounds so sweet, like vanilla pudding. The repetition of the prayer is a mantra that energizes the Mary spirit and makes an environment for her to possess the intercessor.

Be not guided by fear, but by prayer. Fear not the darkness, for I carry the light. [Sept. 14, 1970; Mar. 24, 1971]
Yes, I am truly the Mediatrix of peace, the Mediatrix between God and man. I have been given the light by my Son to hold back the darkness.  [July 1, 1971]

Who is the Light bearer in the Old and New Testament? The name Lucifer means “light bearer.” Yes, I could go into a linguistic study of Isaiah 14:12, NKJV, where the name is first found, but that is not necessary, because this is Lucifer’s private joke, a little chuckle between himself and his demons. Veronica is not a linguist, so he is communicating on her level and that of the average Catholic. Apparently no one caught the irony. The ‘Mary’ entity is actually the devil himself.

The 1970s and 80s, A Time of Upheaval and Confusion for the Catholic Church


Sources: Malachi Martin, The Jesuits, 1987;  Wayne Weible, Medjugorje, the Mission, 1994 and Medjugorje, the Message, 1989; www.tldm.org; www.medjugorje.org; http://www.ewtn.com/library/papaldoc/consecra.htm; and Wikipedia.
 
John XXIII (1958-1963) was right…the Catholic Church needed to reform, to change, to breathe some of the fresh air of the increasingly global atmosphere on the mid-to-late 1900’s. It needed to rethink certain dogmas such as birth control, the infallibility of the pope, the traditional garb of nuns, the Latin Mass, the elitist view of salvation, etc. That’s all Pope John wanted to accomplish with Vatican II (1962-1965). He worried that the reshuffling or airing out of long-held dogmatics might get out of control, gliding away down the “slippery slope,” but his advisors assured him that it would only invigorate the church and bring renewal through modernization.

The Theologians

The late Malachi Martin (in The Jesuits, 1987), a Jesuit who left the order, wrote extensively as a journalist and theologian on the aforementioned decades of the Catholic Church. The church of Pope John was already slowly unraveling. Sea changes in theological thought were facilitated by a few extremely influential and famous seminary theologians. Karl Rahner (1904-1984), for example, “…was the leader in what can be aptly described as the wolf-pack of Catholic theologians who, since 1965, have lacerated and shredded not merely the flanks but the very substance of Catholicism” (p.22). He attacked sixteen centuries of Catholic beliefs such as “…the integrity of Christ’s person; the meaning and value of the Seven Sacraments; the existence of Heaven and Hell; the divine character of the authority of the bishops; the truth of the Bible; the primacy and infallibility of the pope; the character of priesthood; the Immaculate Conception and the Assumption of Mary, Christ’s mother--all would be up for grabs” (p.24). “He taught several generations how to consume their own faith with logic, skepticism, and disobedience” (p.25).

Of course, Protestant denominations have the same challenge. Seminaries become more and more liberal/secular as the decades roll on. The great challenge of religious education as I see it is to separate what is cultural from what God is actually doing and saying. As a Protestant who was raised Catholic, I can sympathize with some of Rahner’s points, but many Evangelical scholars would reject much of such modernization.

A group of French Jesuits called La Penseé followed the lead of Tielhard de Chardin in challenging foundational doctrine such as creation, Latin liturgy, the authority of the pope, the divinity of Jesus, and the church’s teaching on Original Sin. Before the ‘70’s were over, Jesuits and a few other religious orders were in such a state of rebellion against the traditional practice and teaching of the church that author Martin describes an open war between the papacy and the orders. These new ideas did not necessarily flow down to the Catholic on the street, but they influenced the priesthood dramatically.

The Modernist, Marxist Jesuits, Maryknolls, and Dominicans of South America

Decades ago, I heard the term Liberation Theology, but I never knew what it meant until I read Martin’s book. Compassionate Jesuits, already primed by Modernist influences, sympathized with their poverty stricken Latino congregations to the point that they left their monasteries and lived with the people. They did not, however, cease to be called priests, monks, or nuns. They lived on the Catholic name and funds. However, they ignored the lessons of Communism in Eastern Europe. They rebelled against the excesses of Capitalism, which seemed to keep the people exploited and suppressed, and favored Marxism, including its program of violent revolution and class warfare, as the solution to the world’s ills. When Popes Paul VI and later John Paul II protested vigorously, they met with delaying tactics, manipulation, unbelievable disrespect, disobedience, and deception.

As for Pope John Paul I, the predecessor of JP II for 33 days, web tales still abound about a poisoned glass of champagne which disappeared as soon as he was found dead in bed. On his nightstand there was a speech he had intended to deliver to the Jesuit leaders at their international General Congregation in 1978. In the speech was a veiled threat that if the Jesuits continued confusing the Catholic faithful with heretical beliefs, he would disband the order. Of course, the speech was never delivered. Furthermore, JP I had a dossier on the Vatican Bank and their shady dealings. There is good reason to wonder if the man was murdered.

Martin’s book also helped me appreciate the trials of JP II. He was a fit and active man in his youth, but in 1981 he was hit with 2 or 3 bullets by a Turkish assassin. Then (allegedly by mistake), he was sent to a regular hospital rather than the Vatican clinic, and allegedly by mistake he was given regular blood rather than the blood that was laid aside for him at the Vatican. The blood transfusion gave him hepatitis, disrupting his recovery and debilitated his resolve to reform or disband the Jesuits. When he visited Nicaragua in 1983 to confront the priests that had morphed into the Sandinistas, his speech was drowned out by catcalls and shouting. His reception was so humiliating that he was shaking with anger.

When the Sandinistas became the new oppressor, a new group called the Contras arose to overthrow them. The U.S. supported the Contras, who were not communists, by selling weapons to Iran through Israel. It evolved into an illegal arms for hostages deal. Seven hostages were released, and some of the arms money was funneled secretly to the Nicaraguan Contras. President Reagan managed to slither out of any proven association with the deal, and all administration officials who were indicted and convicted were pardoned by George H.W. Bush when he became president. (Wikipedia)

In spite of ongoing health issues, JP II was greatly loved and lasted until 2005. During those years however, the Catholic priesthood was plagued with growing numbers of homosexual and pedophile priests. The modernists had no problem with the homosexuals, but the pedophiles were being protected and shuffled from parish to parish, a policy approved by the higher authorities of the Church. Catholics were baling out of the church and thriving in Evangelical churches. Candidates for the religious orders were declining in numbers.
    
 Pope John Paul I, murdered?

The Charismatics

During the late ‘60s through ‘80s the Charismatic Renewal was going strong amongst many Catholics, including priests and nuns. I handed a copy of The Cross and the Switchblade to a couple of Jesuits who found it to be extremely encouraging. Tongues and prophecy were gifts manifested in special meetings attended by both Catholics and Protestants. My mother thought I had joined a loony cult until she realized that Catholic priests were also speaking in tongues and talking about being baptized in the Holy Spirit. This trend was an interesting counter movement to the growing ranks of Modernists.

The Marian Apparitions

I’ve already blogged at length about Apparitions of the Virgin Mary, but in those posts I wasn’t able to pin the wailings of Bayside Mary to events in the Vatican. Nor did I do an extensive analysis of Medjugorje Mary. Bayside Mary is easy to lampoon because of the shrill absurdities, threats, scoldings, declarations about the plots to assassinate two popes, the evil Curia, Vatican II, the forces of 666 in the Vatican, worldly nuns, homosexual priests, abused children, and various horrendous apocalyptic scenarios which will destroy most of the population of the earth. By contrast, MM was so bland and politically correct that it’s hard to find a seam to pick at. In a country where Muslims, Eastern Orthodox Catholics, Roman Catholics, and secular communists live in tense proximity, you’d better believe MM cannot foster ethnic violence by condemning all non-Roman Catholics to Hell. In contrast, BM declares that all lapsed Catholics are doomed. MM calls for people to respect all religions because only those who absolutely knowingly reject God and Jesus actually go to the hot place. The Croatian Jesus accepts people of all religions.

MM continually called for prayer, penance, fasting, peace, and turning away from the world and materialism. She encouraged the charismatics who made pilgrimage to her meetings. BM, rather, warned her children to reject the seeking of the Spirit. She hated guitars, women who work outside the home, and hussy nuns who wore skirts above their knees. Veronica Leuken, the seeress of NY, saw Hell swallowing one such nun. What would BM think of Jesus receiving Muslims and Hindus? BM also warned the world about UFOs being instruments of Hell, a topic not mentioned by MM.

MM ends each of hundreds of brief messages with the phrase “Thank you for responding to my call.” Through the Christmas holidays, she invites all to come to “little Jesus” in her arms. It reinforces an image of big Mama Mary and little Baby Jesus. Did he wear diapers back then? Her messages are so repetitive, they are hardly compelling. Even around the time when the Twin Towers fell and the Iraq War began, or all through the Gulf Wars, MM’s messages in Croatia were bereft of any substantial answers, direction, confrontation, or information. BM, however, never ceased to make demands and new rules, and to scold the leadership for being lax and corrupt.

The difference in agenda and personality is so stark that Catholic officials could not believe that both were the same Mary (and neither can I), so strife began as to which was the real deal. There were healings and miracles in both camps. Lives were changed in both locations. Miraculous photos were developed in NY while the sun seemed to dance in Medjugorje. Silver rosary chains turned to gold in the pockets of pilgrims.

BM repeatedly ranted in anger about the Third Secret of Fatima not being revealed when it was supposed to be. She declared that the secret was that Satan had entered the highest levels of the Vatican (Pope Paul VI agreed). Well, what pope would reveal that? MM didn’t mention the secret at all, nor had any word about popes.

MM does not make the claim to be Co-Redemptress or the Queen of Heaven, but the emphasis on the Rosary and the IH as the answer to the world’s ills puts MM firmly in the center of Redemption and Grace. Both declare that Mary’s IH is a path to Jesus and Jesus is the path to God. BM claims to be the Mediatrix of all grace, among other exalted titles. In fact, the Fatima apparition and other apparitions are very much about the IHM and global devotion to it.

The Immaculate Heart of Mary has openly been receiving Catholic devotion since the 1600s. A vision of ‘the Miraculous Medal’ appeared to Catherine Laboure in 1830. This was one of ‘Mary’s’ major stepped up campaigns to increase devotion to herself in the world. An image of her IH is set next to the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. His and Her hearts sit beneath a cross and a large M. Twelve stars surround the whole image, suggesting that Mary is the Woman Clothed with the Sun in the Book of Revelations, in which the apocalyptic woman is crowned with 12 stars. On the other side is a picture of Mary, not Jesus. This medal, according to the Mary of 1830, is what will protect the wearer days of judgment attacks of the devil. BM commands that medals and scapulas never be removed from the necks of Catholics and their children to protect them from the brutal days of God’s wrath (the Ball of Redemption, the antichrist, the plague that will destroy millions of children, etc.), not to mention the devil, who comes lurking just outside the door to attack us and destroy our offspring.

Another theme shared by the Marys is that of suffering. MM informs us that no great penance is needed to get to heaven, but some seers and special saints are allowed to suffer rather than be healed because those sufferings can help mitigate the judgment of others. BM is all about suffering as an aid to help sinners and souls in Purgatory.

And then there is the necessity of constant Rosaries. Rosaries will save the world. Rosaries create the divine energy that can stop wars, turn back disasters, convert the sinner. In spite of all the Rosaries, inhabitants of the Middle East are shredding each other over religion and ethnic power struggles. The world is continually on the brink of nuclear war. Capitalism is running amok in the West and has corrupted all levels of government. The middle class in America is disappearing. Sin has not abated among the secular citizens nor among the Catholic priesthood. BM was right about quite a few of her complaints, but then again, the Bible tells us that Satan is the accuser of the brethren.

Mary of Fatima’s demand that Russia be dedicated to her IH was fulfilled twice, once by Pope Pius XII in 1952 and again by John Paul II in 1982. The Berlin Wall did fall in 1989, and communism’s grip on the world has lessened, but although Paul’s consecration is quite beautiful, full of references to Christ and a plea for the world to be delivered from evil and war, Russia has not yet been converted. You can read about these consecrations here. As a bookend statement by Paul VI that the smoke of Satan had entered the Vatican (the Curia), John Paul II stated that the church could not be reformed during his administration. He had apparently given up. He refused to reveal the contents of the Third Secret. It was finally released by Benedict XVI, but many Catholics refuse to believe that it is the real secret. You can read it here.

I personally think that if Catholics would pitch their Rosaries and Marian medals in the ocean, the world would be better off. If one ‘BVM’ can be false, any of them can. Devotion to Mary’s Immaculate Heart hasn’t brought peace or redemption to the Earth. Rather, if these apparitions are evil spirits, actual UFO-related deceptions, the rosaries only open portals to invite them into our dimension. Recall that in the story of the Gulf Breeze Six, ‘Mary’ and several other New Testament characters allegedly communicated through a Ouija Board to 6 young, naïve American intelligence officials in Germany. It was a brilliant, but terrible deception. Furthermore, the spinning disc seen at Fatima and Medjugorje was NOT the sun. It was something that many UFO witnesses have seen in which colors fly off a spinning disc. Fatima Mary appeared out of a cloaked UFO.

I’m not enough of an expert on the state of the Catholic Church to analyze what is happening today with Pope Frances. However, according to the prophecy of St. Malachy, this is the last pope. In his day, says the seer, Rome is supposed to be destroyed. Thus, I am not done with the theme of the Catholic Church. In my next post, I want to write about that prophecy, again drawing from the expertise of others.
