THE WARNING IS MERCY

To be read as though the Warning had just come . . .

The Warning was a mercy from God. By The Warning we became aware that we are not yet what He wants us to be. We felt the pain of being unlike Him, far from Him. His will is for us to become like Himself, happy in all that He is, and to become close to Him. Sin is the only impediment to that. It prevents us from achieving perfect, even eternal happiness. God unveiled our sinfulness to us in The Warning, not out of revenge, for vengefulness is foreign to His heart, but rather out of love and mercy. He wants us to never have to suffer again the pain we felt in The Warning. His mercy allowed us to sample the pain that sin bequeaths to us. The Warning was truly a mercy from God.

THE WARNING WAS A TASTE OF ETERNITY

To be read as though the Warning had just come . . .

The Warning was a taste of eternity. Time stopped for a moment during The Warning, and the truth of timeless existence tumbled in on all of us. It was no longer possible, because of The Warning, to hide from ourselves. All we ever did was before our eyes, seen all at once, in a single glance. We knew then how God's gaze crosses all barriers and grasps the uttermost secrets. He shared with us, for our conversion, how He sees us, and we beheld, in an instant mercifully brief, whatever in us was displeasing to Him. What we understood was our eternal state, should we have died at that time. We suffered for a moment the pain of our sin, the pain of separation from God, the pain of purgatory or hell. God let us see it all, in The Warning.

Garabandal People Update




The photos above show Conchita with Dr. Jeronimo Dominquez, a long time Garabandal supporter who has recently died. He was very close to Conchita, and helped her with her work as a nurse, when she first came to the USA. The top photo shows him at her wedding. giving the bride away, as a good father. I remember going to Dr. Jeronimo's house in the Bronx. What was amazing to me at the time was that he was given permission from his bishop to have the Blessed Sacrament in his home in a small chapel. Not unheard of for a lay person, but rare indeed!

I also just found out that the Doctors son was killed on 9/11 in the Twin Towers. Here is the story from a local newspaper:


Jerome Domínguez had gone diving off the coast of Long Island with some police pals who were also his friends outside the job. After exploring the chambers of a shipwrecked boat, they glided up slowly and started popping up, one after another, to take their places on their boat.

But they noticed one of them, another police officer, was missing. And, without much hesitation, Domínguez was the one to jump right back in the water.

Returning all the way to the bottom, Domínguez found his friend lying unconscious inside the dilapidated ship with insufficient oxygen left. Pulling him up, Domínguez swam toward the light of the surface, alternatively taking on and off his oxygen mask to share it with the unconscious man.

Risking his own life, Domínguez saved his pal's more than two years ago.

But it was not the first time, and it would not be the last, that the decorated New York City cop offered all he had for the sake of others. In fact, Domínguez did it regularly, whenever he encountered people in danger or on duty as a member of the department's elite emergency services unit.

Domínguez, a West Islip resident who grew up in the Pelham Bay section of the Bronx, was at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11 and, according to reports from colleagues to his family, was making his way upward in the building when the north tower collapsed. He remains missing.

One of two sons of devout Catholic parents who spend much of their time trying to spread the faith, Domínguez, 37, had his own sense of mission.

"I once told him, 'Jerome, don't strain yourself so much'," recalled his mother, Gladys Domínguez of the Bronx. "And he said, 'Look, Mommy, you save souls and I will save bodies.'"

After graduating from Mount St. Michael Academy in the Bronx, Domínguez entered the police academy in the mid-'80s. Following his July 1985 graduation, he became a patrol officer for a local precinct in the Bronx. Two years later, Domínguez, also in the Air Force Reserve, joined the highway division.

During the following years, he became committed to his job of helping people on the roads. Even when off duty, Domínguez carried power-cutting and other tools in his vehicle to help stalled drivers or to extricate victims at accident scenes, his relatives said.

Once, while heading to Texas for Air Force training in 1999, Domínguez encountered an overturned school bus with several children inside. He quickly took charge and rescued more than a dozen children before the bus burst into flames. His feat earned him praise, and he appeared on a television news show and was mentioned in newspapers that day. The Air Force offered him a permanent job, but he preferred an offer he got from the NYPD to join the emergency unit.

"He enjoyed himself helping people in some way, morally or physically," said his father, Geronimo Domínguez, a physician who hosts a bible reading television program in Spanish. " ... He was very courageous."

Besides diving, Domínguez left time to cruise on his Harley-Davidson motorcycle, sometimes along the Eastchester Bay coast near his parents' house, formerly a waterfront home and fishing retreat of New York City Mayor Fiorello La Guardia.

In his last conversation with his father, some days before Sept. 11, Domínguez discussed the idea of a heavenly place for souls to rest in happiness after death. His parents find comfort in their strong belief that Domínguez is already there. "He loved helping others, and there isn't in the Bible or anywhere else a greater love than that, giving your life for others," his father said.
-- Víctor Manuel Ramos (Newsday)

May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen.

I was just thinking that little by little, many of us old Garabandalistas are dying off. I'm 72 and would love to be around for the Warning, Miracle and Great Sign but if God has other plans for me, I'm ready for heaven too!
Christmas Blessings to all+

THE WARNING SHOWS US OUR SINS


To be read as though the Warning had just come . . .

The Warning shows us our sins. It was predicted as a "correction of the conscience of the world." The scriptures foretold long ago that Jesus would send the Holy Spirit to "convict the world of sin." If we did not fully understand before what that meant, we do now, by the power of The Warning. Sin, our resistance to becoming the loving kind of person God is, results in many unloving deeds, decisions and attitudes. These were all vividly clear in the brilliant light God shone in our souls. Our consciences were thoroughly illuminated at that moment, exposing all the self-deception we are so clever at, pulling out the dead memories that have never been leavened with love, uncovering the lies we told ourselves, the compromises we made. We saw so blatantly the many harsh, stubborn, and unkind decisions we have made, the times we cruelly trod on the feelings of other people, coveted their possessions, envied their good fortune and rejoiced at their failures. Then we groaned with anguish when God revealed to us the neglect, the
refusal to help, the undone deeds and the unfulfilled plans. We have heard Him say to us, "Why have you persecuted Me?"

THE WARNING MADE US AWARE


To be read as though the Warning had just come . . .

The Warning made us aware of God. Everyone, unbeliever as well as believer, now can declare that God has touched us with His immeasurable power. He has intervened in an unprecedented manner to make all people aware of His existence, His mercy, His sovereign rulership, His love for us and His concern for our salvation. There is a God, and He is good. No one can now any longer deny Him unless he chooses to fling the truth back in God's face. The Warning has made God evident. We have felt His power in our bones.

PRIESTS TEACHING ABOUT GARABANDAL

I just read about this Franciscan Community working in the Caribbean who preach about Garabandal! They would like to set up a Formation Center in Garabandal! Here is their home page to visit: http://www.hermanosfranciscanos.org/whoweare.htm

Franciscans can be Friars (Monks) and Third Order (Laity) members, who vow to follow the Rule of St. Francis of Assisi, and commit themselves to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and ministering to the poorest of the poor. Wherever there is a need to share the message of God's love, you will find the Franciscans. They work in education, social justice, and parish ministry throughout the world. In Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, they spread the Gospel by preaching and founding churches. They also run occupational training centers for the poor, and distribute food and other necessities. Although their primary work is in Puerto Rico, the work of the Hermanos Franciscanos extends throughout the Caribbean, and locations in the United States, Africa, Colombia, Ecuador, Brazil, and Spain.

When you visit our guest house, your donations help us pay for our many kinds of ministry. We are grateful for any financial support which is offered; your alms and prayers are ways that you can join our Franciscan family in our caring for the poor. None of us can change the world by ourself, but working together we can make a great deal of difference.

If you are interested in helping to provide for the spiritual and physical needs of God's family on earth, you will feel right at home among the Franciscan Friars and Third Order members.

THE WARNING LIKE A CONVERSION


To be read as though the Warning had just come . . .

The Warning was like the conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle, who was penetrated by the same light we have recently endured. He was on the Damascus road, journeying to that town to persecute the newly converted Christian Jews who lived there. In a glorious vision it was revealed to him that he was assailing not only the members of the Church, but Jesus Himself, the very Lord of heaven and earth! The blinding light of the Risen Christ convicted him of sin. Paul heeded the warning Jesus had given him; he repented and became his faithful follower, and left his former life behind.

Has not the same enlightenment been accorded to us all in The Warning? The grace once granted to an individual has finally penetrated every human heart in a single, sudden burst of divine light. We have felt the same grace, the same light that Paul did. God would have the whole world respond just as Paul did. We must now repent of the sin the Lord has shown us in ourselves by The Warning, and amend our lives, following Jesus.

THE WARNING WAS PREDICTED

To be read as though the Warning had just come . . .
TODAY

The Warning was predicted by Our Lady of Mount Carmel at Garabandal, where she prophesied three great events that were to come: The Warning, The Miracle, and The Punishment. The last would occur only if the world would still refuse to repent after the first two made God's mind plain to all. We have just experienced the first; the second and the third are still in the future. The Miracle will come within a year of The Warning, so that we will be prepared to receive the grace of The Miracle.

FROM MARK MALLETT: A MUST READ! Mark again speaks about the "Illumination":

The Value of One Soul

lazarus.jpg
Christ raising Lazarus, Caravaggio

IT was the end of a string of six concerts in several small towns on the Canadian prairies. The turnouts were poor, usually less than fifty people. By the sixth concert, I was beginning to feel sorry for myself. As I began to sing that night several years ago, I looked out at the audience. I could’ve sworn that everyone there was over ninety! I thought to myself, "They probably can’t even hear my music! Moreover, are these really the people you want me to evangelize, Lord? What about the youth? And how am I going to feed my family….?" And on and on the whining went, as all the while I kept playing and smiling at the quiet audience.

Afterward, I was supposed to stay the night in the empty rectory. But I was so upset that I packed everything up and started the five hour drive home through the night. I wasn’t two miles out of town when suddenly I felt the Lord’s presence in the seat beside me. I could "see" Him leaning over and looking squarely at me. He spoke with an intensity that to this very day shakes my soul.

Mark—Don’t underestimate the value of ONE soul.

The words were so powerful, so full of love, so intense that I burst into tears. Because suddenly I remembered… there was one younger lady who came up and spoke to me after the concert. She was visibly moved. I spoke with her and tried to answer her questions, but kept packing my gear, sulking, feeling sorry for myself instead of realizing that the one soul Jesus would have descended to earth to die for alone, was standing before me.

So that I would never forget what He said—what He died for—He repeated those words again, in a love which still leaves me in tears, even as I write this:

Don’t underestimate the value of ONE soul.

I repented, and from that day on began to realize that Jesus was no longer fishing with nets, but with hooks… looking now for one soul here, one soul there, before the coming of the Great Storm.

THE HANDS AND FEET OF CHRIST

After Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, He said to the people standing there:

Untie him and let him go. (John 11:44)

You see, through the Illumination which is coming, Jesus will raise many souls to life. Even now, He is doing so. But you will be needed to untie them and let them go. That is, they will need teaching, the Sacraments, and even deliverance to be totally free (see Exorcism of the Dragon). Whether you are a bishop, priest, religious or layman, Jesus wants you to be ready for the Harvest.

He will never abandon you in this Storm. But He asks you now, with a heart full of sorrow and love, will you help Him find that ONE soul? Will you give Him your Great Yes? Or will you hide your talents? Will you fall asleep in the Garden, or will you remain with Him to watch and pray?

Whether you realize it or not, or whether you believe it or not, the angels and all of Heaven hover above you now, awaiting your answer. For they see the soul whose eternal salvation hangs in the balance, awaiting your "yes"…

You have heard, O Virgin, that you will conceive and bear a son; you have heard that it will not be by man but by the Holy Spirit. The angel awaits an answer; it is time for him to return to God who sent him. We too are waiting, O Lady, for your word of compassion; the sentence of condemnation weighs heavily upon us. Answer quickly, O Virgin. Reply in haste to the angel… Why do you delay, why are you afraid? Believe, give praise, and receive. Let humility be bold, let modesty be confident… See, the desired of all nations is at your door, knocking to enter. If he should pass by because of your delay, in sorrow you would begin to seek him afresh, the One whom your soul loves. Arise, hasten, open. Arise in faith, hasten in devotion, open in praise and thanksgiving.

Behold the handmaid of the Lord, she says, be it done to me according to your word. —St. Bernard, Vol. I, Liturgy of the Hours, pg. 345

——————————

May all my readers experience a blessed Christmas and the great love of Jesus for each you. For you too are that ONE soul… From the bottom of my heart, I thank everyone of you who has written, supported this apostolate, and sustained me through your prayer. You are always, always, in my heart and prayers.

THE WARNING by Father Philip Bebie, C.P. INTRODUCTION

Map of Spain showing the population densities ...Image via WikipediaTo be read as though the Warning had just come:

A short time ago, abruptly, all on earth felt the intervening of God. To each one of us He unveiled the innermost secrets of our heart. His inexorable light seared our consciences and showed us to ourselves as in a flawless mirror. The truth was vivid in our minds. We saw the awful blight of our sinfulness, the excruciating pain of it, and knew in an instant what our eternity would be because of it. The Lord's mercy scoured away all pretension.
By His merciful intrusion, we knew ourselves --- oh, how we knew ourselves, in His
light. We felt the Warning.

Over twenty years ago, it had been predicted by the Mother of God, who communicated
her message to us through four young girls from the mountain village of Garabandal, Spain, remote and rude, rocky and high among the clouds. The message was plain as well, and not really new in content. For she had been repeating it generation upon generation as she visited one place after another for what is now a span of one hundred and fifty years. Yet at this moment she had spoken it with special urgency. Time was running out. These would be the "last warnings" the world would receive. People would have to change their lives and stop offending God, or else they would suffer the most terrible consequences.

The four children who saw her were informed of great events that would overwhelm the
world. These occurrences were to happen, by God's great mercy, so that the whole world would be converted. They would bring about the conversion of humanity. But unless we heard the message and changed soon, this would happen only after great suffering. She told them of "The Warning", a "correction of the conscience of the world", which all would experience as a kind of disaster in their lives, but none of them would die of it, except perhaps from the shock of it.

She also spoke to them of a "Great Miracle" to be
worked by the Lord at Garabandal so that we all might come to believe, but she would not permit the disclosure of the exact time this would happen (although one of the girls knows the date and must announce it eight days before it happens). Lastly she revealed to them "The Punishment", which would descend upon us "directly from God", if people did not repent in time to avert it.

The Punishment must be avoided. Because the Lord wants to protect us from it, He
gives us The Warning and The Miracle. They are meant to help us respond to the message of Mary so that we can avoid The Punishment entirely. We must understand what to do to be saved, and then we must do it. Our fate hangs in the balance. There will be peace; Our Lady of Fatima has promised that it will inevitably arrive. What we do between now and that "Era of Peace" will determine whether or not The Punishment will first have to be undergone.

But for now, we know that The Warning has pierced our hearts. We have known it with
greater clarity than anything else has ever been known. We must heed it, and look again at the repeated messages and warnings of the Mother of God. Looking again and more deeply is the burden of this book. We will recall and reflect upon what she said over the long years of our forebears, consider the present situation, and open up to her promises.

There is danger, greater danger than humankind has ever faced before, but there is also
hope. She asserted, "There will be peace." "In the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph; the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me. Russia will be converted, and an Era of Peace will be given to the world."

This book will attempt to answer many of the questions in your mind since you felt THE
WARNING. What was the Warning? Is a miracle coming too? Why has the whole world been involved in such a powerful, direct way? Is it the end of the world? Read and be instructed. All the material presented has been around for twenty years, but we have not heard it, or been prevented from hearing it. God has broken through the darkness. Read now. It is time.

FROM MARK MALLETT:

Mark

THE WARNING: FOREWORD

Blessed Anna Maria Taigi spoke of a great chastisement which would come to the world before which there would be an illumination of the conscience of men by which suddenly everyone would see themselves as God sees them. She indicated that this illumination of conscience would result in the saving of many souls because many would repent as a result of this "Warning" . . . this miracle of "self illumination".

Beatified in 1920 as a model of women and mothers, Anna Maria Taigi was not only a prophetess of our time, but one of the most extraordinary mystics in the history of the Church.

From the time she was 20 years old, until she died at the age of 63, the Beata was accompanied by a mysterious light in which she saw past, present, and furure events . . . some relating to struggles among nations; some relating to individual souls.

Blessed Anna Maria gazed into that light only when she felt an interior impulse . . . a sort of direction from Our Lord and the Holy Spirit . . . to do so. And usually when she looked into the light she was asked to offer some special suffering for a special need in the Church or in an individual.

In that light Anna Maria saw a great chastisement coming upon the world in the future . . . but at the same time a great blessing: The "Warning" which would be an illumination of the consciences of men, just as though suddenly every man was given the same kind of light that accompanied her . . . in which they would see themselves as God sees them.

It is interesting that 300 years before Blessed Anna Maria this same revelation was given to St. Edmund Campion, who went to his death affirming this same prophecy.

One is put in mind of the prophecies of the Old Testament . . . some of which were close to the time of Our Lord, and some of which were hundreds of years before. And no one ever knew with any exactitude when those prophecies would be fulfilled.

But we now have cogent reasons to believe that this prophecy of the warning and the chastisement . . . which we have heard from the lips of various good persons and canonized saints . . . will take place very soon, for we recall that St. John Bosco, an authentic prophet of our time, was told by Our Lady that She would obtain a victory for Christianity before the year 2000 which would be greater even than the victory of Lepanto (which in 1571 was a turning point in the history of the world over seeminly hopeless odds).

* * *
It must be borne in mind that this book is intended to be published generally only after the Warning. For that reason it reads as though the miracle of illumination of conscience had already been experienced by the reader. Even if read before the Warning we believe it will be of deep interest and edification for all who read it.

Free copies of this book may be obtained by writing to:
The 101 Foundation, Inc.

Asbury, N.J. 08802-0151

An offering of postage would be appreciated.

THE WARNING by Father Philip Bebie, C.P.


(Cum permisso superiorum)

Explanation of This Book

A great struggle between good and evil is going on. Pope Paul VI did not hesitate to call it "apocalyptic."

The ultimate result of this struggle was told to us specifically at Fatima: There will be a triumph of love . . . a triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary . . . "Russia will be converted and an era of peace will be granted to mankind."

Before that triumph we may have a terrible chastisement in which "several nations will be annihilated."

According to Garabandal, Medjugorje, etc., to make it possible for the world to avoid that chastisement the Queen of Peace has obtained for us THE WARNING.

Holy prophets (Saint Edmund Campion, Blessed Anna Maria Taigi) predicted this same warning at the very beginning of the historical religious catastrophies: The Reformation conflicts (Saint Edmund Campion) and the rise of Marxism (Blessed Anna Maria) which have brought our world to its present state of estrangement from God.

At the time of the publication of this book in 1986 Father Bebie (who wrote this in 1981-82) was suffering the final stages of a terminal cancer, which, to the surprise of his doctors and most of all to himself, had not yet taken his life. He had previously entrusted the manuscript to a friend to be published when the warning occurred. During a "goodbye" visit early in 1986 . . . shortly after he had returned from a hospital intensive care unit, it was decided that publication after the warning might be ineffective. It might be too late for people to know the importance of what had just happened to them . . . and to the world!

THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS WARNING CANNOT BE EXAGGERATED.

It will be an act of God . . . an act of His mercy. Whether the world will avoid annihilation of several entire nations will deoend on how each of us reacts to this act of His Mercy.

At a time when the world has lost its sense of sin, we will suddenly see ourselves as God sees us. We will recognize our sins.

IF WE REJECT THIS ACT OF MERCY . . . if we then persist in our sins . . . will we not deserve to see the whole world purged with fire . . . or by whatever purging Divine Justice may elect?

It is possible that many will reject the warning out of ignorance.

That is why it seemed both prudent and advisable to make this book available in advance, entrusting to those who receive it, the responsiblity of communicating with newspapers, television, radio, Church leaders, government officials, in a word, to all who will be able to inform the greatest number of people just what the warning means as soon as it happens.

It may be a year away. It may happen tomorrow. There are many indications that it will come soon.

NOTE: Father Bebie died in 1986, when at the very time this little book (written by him in 1981) was being printed.

CONCHITA & COMMUNISM



Conchita of Garabandal: "When communism comes again everything will happen."

This excerpt is taken from the German book by Albrecht Weber, Garabandal—Der Zeigefinger Gottes (Garabandal—The Finger of God):

Conchita told the author in 1965 when everything would be set in motion:

"When communism comes again everything will happen."

The author responded: "What do you mean by comes again?"

"Yes, when it newly comes again," she replied.

"Does that mean that communism will go away before that?"

"I don't know," she said in reply, "the Blessed Virgin simply said 'when communism comes again'."

CAROL AMECHE LOCUTION ABOUT THE "WARNING"

I'm posting this Message from Our Lady to Carol Ameche because it is new and contains some information about the "Warning" that was prophecised at Garabandal and which we are all awaiting to come. I believe it will soon be here!
Deacon John

Carol Ameche has been receiving locutions (an inner voice heard in the mind and felt in the heart.) from the Triune God and the Virgin Mary since 1992. She has three earlier books (Queenship Publishing) containing alleged messages from heaven, and presents this one, "FOR MERCY'S SAKE" about times that see the "end of time as we know and live it now" (NOT the end of the world, but) enormous changes in the world, great destruction, great outpourings of the Holy Spirit, attempted world domination by the enemies of freedom and God Himself, a call to the earth that pleads trust in Heavenly promises of protection and God's Divine Will, teachings that guide us through chaos and upheaval on the earth without fear or despair, requests for enormous amounts of prayer for the salvation of the entire world, and a clear picture of life in the new era of peace and purity on a renewed earth. These words are also shared by her in travels all over the world. This call is reflected in locutions being received throughout the world by simple, ordinary people chosen, says our Father God, since before they were born. Present day events attest to words revealed for those who will listen to the call of our Creator to choose life! Carol lives in Scottsdale AZ with her husband, Don. They have five children and eleven grandchildren, and are members of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church. She has been speaking throughout the world for the past fifteen years to share words of knowledge received internally from the Triune God and the Virgin Mother regarding the need to 'change' in the people of God, as all are called to become, in order to reach out to those who come to us after a great gift of God called the Illumination of our minds to the state of our souls ( Also known as the WARNING ) as God Himself sees them. This time period has been full of her answer to encourage all to pray for the salvation of the whole world, and to have hope in a renewed and purified future for the world. Her life, as well as those of several others in the world is dedicated to sharing words of warning of coming disasters that will fulfill Scripture until the Return of Jesus. She is available to speak in your area and only needs a plane ticket and home in which to stay. Her phone # is 480-990-8012, or stargranni@aol.com.

External locution through Carol at Ameche Prayer Group, 11/30/2008


My dear ones, be with Me now in prayer for the people in India. I am your Mother. I am their Mother and Mother of the entire world.
My children, you will see many, many terrorist attacks throughout the world now as part of the Father’s plan. He allows it to happen as it fulfills Scripture; and it also allows His plan to go forward. Always, My children, when you see disasters, hear of people going into Eternity because of them, you can rejoice for those reasons. You know, now, how important it is for Scripture to be fulfilled totally. You know how important it is for the Father’s plan to go forward because you have been waiting so long. I tell you, you will see more escalation. You will experience the things you have been waiting for so arduously and so long; and you will rejoice. Although it may be painful, that will not last long; because you are so faithful now. Think about what you will say to people who ask you, “What is going on, what is all of this, what does this mean?” Be sure to emphasize that great disasters are not the end of the world although you know the Warning will look like one, an end of the world; and most certainly it will cause a tremendous change and there will much adjustment afterwards, because you will be living in a new way. Pray for everyone and their ability to adjust to change, to adjust to walking away: many people will be unable to leave their possessions, not realizing they are the ones who are owned by these things.
More prayer than ever has been called for, I repeat that again today. You can find time for more prayer. When you see these things, you will wish you had prayed more. Again, do not worry. Do not fear. You and your loved ones will be reunited through many of these events as Jesus has promised; and you will serve together the very needy people who come, and need your prayers they d, more than ever. The sight of destruction will open hearts, will open minds; and this will be your opportunity to answer questions.
Do not fear, My children. Remember, there is nothing you will be unable to do for their needs. It will be a short period of time that they are with you. The Father has waited as long as He can; and so things will move quickly and yet the great feast of the birth of My Son must be allowed to occur in the life of each one of you, of each person who believes throughout the world, without interruption. So many, many graces will be poured out on that feast, so important to the lives of the rest of the world.
Rejoice with Me, My children. You will begin to feel My presence more once again to give you strength, to give you hope, to help you keep on keeping on. Be sure to remind people that I am their Mother. They are My little ones, and they are loved by myself, by their Triune God more than words can deeply explain; but the words we have are enough.

I love you. I am so happy to see you all gathered once again and health returning to those who have suffered. I am so happy to hear the sincerity in your voice, the love in your voice, the beauty on your faces. I am with you. I am with you every second. When something makes you sad or hurts you, be aware of that. Practice that now. From now on, you need Me more than ever. My children, I am so grateful to you. Thank you for your love, your gratitude, your fidelity. Yes, My dear ones, all is well. Do not, I tell you, be afraid. Amen, Amen, Amen. Amen."

MESSAGE FROM JOEY LOMANGINO


October 18, 2008

Dear Friends of Our Lady,

Remember the Message!

_________________________________________________________________

October 18, 1961—We must make many sacrifices, perform much penance, and visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently. But first, we must lead good lives. If we do not, a chastisement will befall us. The cup is already filling up, and if we do not change, a very great chastisement will come upon us.

June 18, 1965—As my message of October 18 has not been complied with and has not been made known to the world, I am advising you that this is the last one. Before, the cup was filling up. Now it is flowing over. Many cardinals, many bishops and many priests are on the road to perdition and are taking many souls with them. Less and less importance is being given to the Eucharist. You should turn the wrath of God away from yourselves by your efforts. If you ask His forgiveness with sincere hearts, He will pardon you. I, your mother, through the intercession of Saint Michael the Archangel, ask you to amend your lives. You are now receiving the last warnings. I love you very much and do not want your condemnation. Pray to us with sincerity and we will grant your requests. You should make more sacrifices. Think about the passion of Jesus.

_________________________________________________________________

Please help us to make the Message known as Our Lady requested.

MARK MALLETT CONTINUES WRITING ABOUT THE WARNING (ILLUMINATION) & THE ANTICHRIST

The Seven Year Trial - Part VII


The Crowning With Thorns, by Michael D. O’Brien

Blow the trumpet in Zion, sound the alarm on my holy mountain! Let all who dwell in the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming. (Joel 2:1)

THE Illumination will usher in a period of evangelization that will come like a flood, a Great Flood of Mercy. Yes, Jesus, come! Come in power, light, love, and mercy!

But lest we forget, the Illumination is also a warning that the path the world and many in the Church itself have chosen will bring terrible and painful consequences upon the earth. The Illumination will be followed by further merciful warnings that begin to unfold in the cosmos itself…

JUNE-08 NEWSLETTER


THE WORKERS OF OUR
LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL
de Garabandal, Inc.


P.O. Box 606, Lindenhurst, New York 11757-0606 Phone 631-226-4408 • Fax 631-226-0619 • www.Garabandal.us

June, 2008
Dear Friends of Our Lady, In 1968, Joey Lomangino and several early promoters decided to organize the promotion of the Message of Our Lady of Mount Carmel de Garabandal given in Spain in 1961 and 1965. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the incorporation of the Workers of Our Lady of Mount Carmel de Garabandal in America.

At the time of the apparitions, Our Lady said to Conchita, “The House of Charity that Joey will
establish in New York will give great glory to God.” No one knew exactly what that would entail nor could they imagine the span of time required for the work to be accomplished and for things to come to fruition in the fullness of time.

The work of the New York Center has always been the worldwide promotion of the Message in the various
opportunities and methods available each decade.Yet under the surface, it has been the workers who have benefited most from the grace and privilege of working for Our Lady.

All who have been associated with the Workers of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Lindenhurst can attest
to countless good works, conversions, vocations of all kinds as well as miracles and healings, great and small, over the past forty years. For many years, the Center also indirectly promoted the cause of Padre Pio and we are confident that having seen the Holy Capuchin made a saint in our time, we will endure by Our Lady’s assistance to the fulfillment of the Warning and Miracle.

Garabandal is for a world in crisis. But it is exactly for this reason that it is a message of
hope. Standing behind the wonderful and terrible predictions are the enduring support and concern of the supernatural order for the Church and Humanity. Our Lord and Our Lady are extremely solicitous for us and will pursue a fallen world to the brink of chaos and renew it if we will only cooperate. “I love you very much and do not want your condemnation,” are the pleading words of a pierced and tender heart, the heart of a mother.

Garabandal promises such impressive events not as an empty display of spectacle but to reinforce
belief and inspire faith in the existence of the Divine to a world that has reached lukewarm ambivalence. As Marian Christians and believers in the apparitions we should never lose sight of the wonderful hope Our Lady has given us at Garabandal.

It is fitting at such anniversaries to remember all those whose contributions increased the spread of
the Message around the world for forty years and to express gratitude to God for the great graces we have received and the wonderful things we have witnessed in service to Our Blessed Mother.

Due to repeated requests, we have compiled a list of the most recurring questions sent to us by letter and email.We encourage all to spend time reading and learning the basic facts of the apparitions from the original sources found on our website. Thank you, our friends and benefactors, for your continued prayerful support of this apostolate. Great days are coming!


10 Questions from Our Website:
1. How is Joey?
Joey Lomangino suffered a serious heart attack in 1999 that ended his public life. Since that time, his age and his health have kept him from actively participating in the day to day work of the apostolate. He no longer speaks publicly on Garabandal and Padre Pio. He maintains an intense and active prayer life and looks forward to the Miracle as the culmination of his work on behalf of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. Your emails are read to him and your intentions are remembered in his daily rosaries.

2. When is the Warning?

Hopefully, soon. The Message of Garabandal is for a world in crisis. As the events approach their 50th Anniversary, it is clear that the Message of Garabandal has passed the test of time. The most controversial elements of the Message which were considered scandalous in the 1960s have been made plain, especially Our Lady’s warning of the turmoil and confusion arising from inside the Church. With the passing of Pope John Paul II we have entered a new era that will witness the renewal of the Church resulting from the occurrence of the Warning and Miracle. Great days are coming!

3. Where are the Visionaries?

The “girls” of Garabandal are all alive, approaching their late fifties and some are grandmothers. The apparitions ended in 1965 and the visionaries have received no further public messages since that time. They all promote Our Lady’s Message in their own way. We respect their privacy and the privacy of their families. We ask all who promote Garabandal to do the same.

4. Has the Church’s Position Changed?

There has been no official change in the Church’s position. Garabandal may be promoted as long as it is clearly stated that the events remain under investigation. Pilgrims may visit and priests administer sacraments in the village. There has been a recent and favorable change towards the apparitions in the private opinion of members of the Church Hierarchy. Ultimately, the occurrence of the prophesied events is required to definitively resolve the official position.

5. What’s going on at the Center?

This year the Workers of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel de Garabandal-Lindenhurst NY, USA will celebrate their 40th year of incorporation. The “House of Charity” remains open and supplying gratis material to promoters around the world. Print materials on the apparitions are effectively distributed via our website www.garabandal.us and will not be reprinted once the current supply is depleted due to ever increasing shipping costs.

6. What is the state of the
promotion of the Message?
Although there are now many organizations, periodicals, and individuals totally or partially devoted to promoting the Garabandal events, the most recent significant advance in the promotion of the Message has come from the internet. Via the internet the Message reaches directly into families and prayer groups where it swiftly spreads. We are happy to report on the success of the global promotion of the Message. Our recent audit indicates correspondence via email with promoters in over 40 countries. Although he died before the advent of the new technology, Fr. Turner believed that the Message must be “broadcast globally” in the time before the Great Events. We believe the internet has finally made this possible.

7. Will I receive notice by
email of the Eight Day Announcement?
Yes. God willing, it is our intent to relay the Eight Day Announcement via email. You must register your email address at our website, www.garabandal.us, to receive email from us.

8. Do you arrange pilgrimages-
Are you planning a “Miracle Flight”?
We do not offer any travel arrangements to the village or endorse specific tours. Many religious travel companies now visit the village as part of a Marian pilgrimage. We have no plans to establish a “Miracle Flight” and strongly encourage everyone interested in going to Spain for the Miracle to research and plan their own travel route and accommodations.

9. What is the status of
“Prophecy of the Three Popes”?
You are watching it unfold. The prophecy called for an “end of the era” after the death of John Paul II. Already noticeable changes have occurred in our country, the world, and the Church since April 2005. We believe these changes will continue and mark the Papacy of Benedict XVI as a turning point in the history of the Church which distinguishes it from the era of Paul VI, John Paul I and John Paul II. There is a danger in speculating on prophecy. Some had tried to stretch the text of prophecy to include the Miracle before the “end of the era” and were mistaken. As a result the promotion of the Message suffered. We ask all promoters of Garabandal to temper their speculation and focus their efforts on promoting the Message in the time that remains to us.

10. What can I do?

First, pray and live the Message. Offer to God your daily penances and be faithful to the state of life to which you have been called. Pray for priests. Incorporate the devotions which Our Lady emphasized at Garabandal in your daily life: The Morning Offering, Daily Mass and Communion and Eucharistic Adoration, the Rosary and Scapular and Devotion to St. Michael. Second, promote the Message among your family and associates. We are happy to send materials to anyone who will distribute them gratis. Please remember every penny of your donation is spent on the promotion of the Message.

THE WARNING (ILLUMINATION) UPDATE

THE WARNING (ILLUMINIATION)

Taking a break today from posting the book series, here is an interesting article about the Warning, especially in regard to the return of Communism. I received this from "The Mother of All Peoples Newsletter: http://www.motherofallpeoples.com

By Barry Hanratty


*The first of the three great prophesied supernatural events of Garabandal
will be unprecedented in human history. It's been called different names.
The Warning is the most common in the English language although this is not
the best translation of Conchita's Spanish word for it: Aviso. Blessed Anna
Maria Taigi referred to it as the Illumination of All Consciences which
seems like a good description based on what has been revealed about it. And
there is yet another name, the one the Blessed Virgin herself gave it that
Conchita says begins with the letter "A" in Spanish but which she has never
disclosed. *

*Universal*

*Every human being on the face of the earth will experience the Aviso from
the smallest babies to the most elderly senior citizens, from the mentally
retarded to the greatest intellects, from people of faith to agnostics and
atheists. All races and all religions will experience it and people of all
conditions of life. There are very few mystics in the world, probably only a
small fraction of one percent of the total population. And yet at the moment
of the Aviso, everyone on earth, for however long it lasts, will have a
mystical experience.*

*Its Purpose*

*The Aviso will serve a number of purposes. The first although not the
primary one, will be the most expedient from a practical point of view: to
put an end to the communist aggression which will have engulfed the world.
The second is the primary, as Conchita has said: "to correct the conscience
of the world and prepare it for the great Miracle." And how the conscience
of the world needs to be corrected, much more today than at any time from
the apparitions until now!*

*The last purpose of the Aviso is "to serve notice" which, by the way, is
the principal translation of the word aviso. But serve notice of what? That
we're being given the last chance to avoid the Chastisement.*

*What Will It Be Like?*

*It's been said, and rightfully so, that one cannot imagine what one has
never experienced. What's it like to jump out of an airplane if you have
never done it? So no matter what the visionaries tell us about the Warning
we will not really know what it is until we go through it. And it may well
be an act of God's mercy that we don't know.*

*What we can say, based on the statements of the seers, is that it will be a
devastating experience—the sinner suddenly seeing his soul in the light of
the All Perfect One. St. Catherine of Genoa once said regarding the
judgments of God: "He finds fault with everything."*

*What our reaction will be remains to be seen. Conchita has said: "I think
that those who do not despair will draw great good from it for their
sanctification." (1)*

*When Dr. J. Dominguez asked Conchita how long it would last, she said five
minutes would be sufficient. Due to the intense interior suffering which the
experience will entail, it might seem like a long time, and if it lasted any
longer who could stand it? (If you O Lord laid bare our guilt who could
endure it?).*

*Reflecting on this impending event ought to be sufficient incentive to "do
much penance, make many sacrifices, visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently
and lead good lives" in preparation.*

*When Will It Happen?*

*…This excerpt is taken from the German book by Albrecht Weber, Garabandal—Der
Zeigefinger Gottes (Garabandal—The Finger of God) (2):*

*Conchita told the author in 1965 when everything would be set in motion:*

*"When communism comes again everything will happen."*

*The author responded: "What do you mean by comes again?"*

*"Yes, when it newly comes again," she replied.*

*"Does that mean that communism will go away before that?"*

*"I don't know," she said in reply, "the Blessed Virgin simply said 'when
communism comes again'."*

*In Conclusion*

*There have been major before and after events in human history. The first
came at the very beginning when Adam and Eve sinned, irrevocably changing
the course of that history. The Deluge was another, and the greatest of all
was the Incarnation when God became man and dwelt among us.*

*There have been many others not of the same magnitude of the above but
nevertheless of great significance, and the Warning promises to be one of
them. How could the world ever be the same again afterwards?*

*In a letter dated December 11, 1965 to Fr. Jose Maria Alba, S.J., Conchita
said: "The Blessed Virgin told me that we Catholic Christians do not think
about the other world, heaven or hell. She said that we should think about
them and that if we did, our lives would be united with Christ." The Warning
will certainly cause us to think more of our final destiny. *
