Garabandal Forum

I was told by a reliable friend
who went on pilgrimage to Lourdes,
Garabandal and Fatima six months
ago, that the accompanying priest
said that the Vatican has lifted the
sanctions on priests and bishops
discussing Garabandal.
The priest reminded everyone
that the Warning would not happen
until the sanctions on discussing
Garabandal had been lifted.
Also, is it true that the Pope is
supposed to visit Moscow and then
hostilities are to break out upon his
arrival back to Rome? Could this be
true and if yes, how could I fi nd out
more about this?

Dear Chuck
The information you were given

by a friend is not correct. The facts
are as follows: In 1966, the Holy See
abolished Canons 1399 and 2318
which dealt with private revelations.
This made it permissible to visit and
promote places of alleged apparitions
like Garabandal, provided faith and
morals were not jeopardized. In
January 1987, Bishop del Val issued a
new directive where priests who visit
Garabandal were free to celebrate
Mass on their own in the village
church, removing the restrictions that
were imposed in 1962. Archbishop
Carlos, Administrator to the Diocese

of Santander, publicly encouraged
priests to visit Garabandal, to
say Mass and hear confessions.
The present Bishop Zamora has
maintained the same position and has
invited anyone to bring forward any
new information on Garabandal.
I have heard this rumour about
the Pope visiting Moscow and then
hostilities are to break out on his
return to Rome. I think this may have
come from another source. Our Lady
did say “the Warning will occur
when things (events) are at their
worst”. She also said Russia would
be converted as a result of the Miracle
and the Pope would see the Miracle
from wherever he is.
Can I suggest you visit our
website for
more information. The most important
thing is to LIVE THE MESSAGES.
God bless
