Our Lady of the Roses, Mary Help of Mothers continues to wait for the formal investigation, the Shrine has never had a formal investigation. We continue to save the Miraculous Photos and Testimonials of miracles that have happened through the years for the Shrine Archives; we are not affiliated with other websites that publish the Messages for financial gain. We have faith in the words of Our Holy Mother:

"Yes, My child, I am going about the world appearing in various places, and I have reason for all.  One day, My child, the waters will come up at Bayside, and I will appear over the old church building.  Your Bishop then cannot deny My appearances. May 17, 1986

Occulations from HeavenSt Theresa

Written by Veronica Leuken

And by dictation from

St. Theresa of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face   

 Known as 'The Little Flower'  




Definition – ‘Occulation’ — from the Latin verb ‘occulo’ meaning to hide; ‘ation’ — a condition, action or quality; thus the state or act of hiding, or being of a hidden nature. The word probably refers to the hidden meaning in the lines of St. Theresa’s poetry, secret information unknown to man; and/or to St. Theresa’s mysterious and hidden presence inside of Veronica whose body she uses to convey her message to the world.

Our Lady, the Blessed Virgin Mary Herself appeared to Veronica in her home beginning on April 7, 1970, informing her that She would appear on the grounds of the old St. Robert Bellarmine Roman Catholic Church in Bayside, New York on June 18, 1970, that vigils of prayer be held there, 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, which dates would be given to Veronica beforehand. The Blessed Mother also instructed Veronica to disseminate the Messages given to her throughout the whole world.
