In the Church-recognized apparitions of Heede, Our Lady appeared to four girls at Heede, a small village in northern Germany in 1937. Jesus Himself also appeared, delivering an apocalyptic message to one of the girls, Greta Gansforth, as follows:
Men did not listen to My Most Holy Mother when she appeared to them at Fatima and admonished them to do penance. Now I Myself am coming at the last hour to warn and admonish mankind! The times are very serious! Men should at last do penance, turn away from their sins and pray, pray much in order that the wrath of God may be mitigated! Particularly the Holy Rosary should be prayed very often! The Rosary is very powerful with God! Worldly pleasures and amusements should be restricted…
Mankind is worse than before the deluge. Mankind is suffocating in sin. Hatred and greed rule their hearts. This is the work of the Devil. They live in great darkness… Mercy will again gain victory over justice. My faithful souls should not be asleep now like the disciples on Mt. Olivet. They should pray without ceasing and gain all they can for themselves and for others. Tremendous things are in preparation; it will be terrible as never before since the foundation of the world. All those who in these grave times have suffered so much are martyrs and form the seed for the new Church… The Blessed Virgin Mary and all the choirs of Angels will be active during the happenings. Hell believes that it is sure of the harvest, but I will snatch it away from them.
I will come with My peace. With a few faithful, I will build up My Kingdom. As a flash of lightening this Kingdom will come… much faster than mankind will realize. I will give them a special light… Pray without ceasing! This New Kingdom will indeed come, quickly and soon! May it be so!
