MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1961:



Conchita and Padre Alejandro in 1964

ARRIVAL OF PADRE ALEJANDRO MARIA ANDREU, S.J.,
AT SAN SEBASTIAN DE GARABANDAL,
FROM VENEZUELA

In the inn belonging to Conchita's father, Our Lady warned Conchita, in ecstasy, that a missionary was in the village. He was Alejandro Maria Andreu with his brother Ramon, coming for the first time to meet the visionaries. Manifesting her predilection for this particular priesthood, the Blessed Virgin revealed to Conchita several personal details about the life of Alejandro, then a missionary in Venezuela since the age of eighteen.
[Excerpted from 'Garabandal' Book, page 100]





The three brothers were all Jesuits, Fr. Luis, Fr. Ramon and Fr. Alejandro.
I just found out that Fr. Ramon died in November 2004 at the age of 81 in California.
The mother of these three priests, entered a convent in Spain and was professed a nun after the death of Fr. Luis.
Notice that Our Lady knows all our personal details . . . That could be embarrassing to some of us! Dear Mother of Mercy, pray for us!
And slowly many witnesses have passed on as we await the prophecies to be fulfilled in our life time!
I always wonder if I'll be around for the Warning and great Miracle? I'm 73 years old now and only the Lord knows how long I will live. Actually, I'm surprised I lived this long. My family has a history of dying young (in their 60's) and I was a sickly child until I reached my late teens. So we never know!
I have a promise to keep on the day of the Miracle that I vowed to God many years ago! I hope to fulfill that promise!
