“Before the cup was filling up. Now it is flowing over.”

In 1961, Our Lady said at Garabandal that “the cup (of iniquity) was already filling up.” Four years later she said it was “flowing over.” If that much could have happened in the course of only a few years, where does that leave us today more than 40 years later with the introduction of abominations that didn’t even exist (at least openly) in the 1960’s?
We have gotten to the stage where virtually every facet of human society has become corrupted to one degree or another. And the Church hasn’t been able to stem the tide against the onslaught (“So goes the Church so goes the world.). Afflicted by scandal, division, disobedience (with many unfaithful churchgoers disregarding inconvenient magisterial teaching), the Church today, with an estimated 70 percent of Catholics no longer believing in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist, is in a state of deterioration. In some countries of Europe, the cradle of Roman Catholicism, the faith is even on the verge of extinction. Sunday Mass attendance in Holland is at 2.5 percent, in Belgium about 7 percent, and in France, the Church’s eldest daughter, 12 percent. It came as no surprise when one of our subscribers from Belgium recently wrote: “The situation in Europe is a disaster.” The situation here in the United States and other parts of the world is not much better.
Yet despite this dismal picture, prophecies foretell an era of peace and a new glory for the Church. However, that will not happen until after the fulfillment of devastating events. Our Lady told the visionaries at Garabandal that the Church would endure a great “tribulation” (she named it “communism”) which would entail a harrowing persecution the likes of which has never been seen before. This prophecy coincides with one made by Blessed Pius IX who said: “There will come a great sign which will fill the world with awe. But this will occur only after the triumph of a revolution during which the Church will undergo ordeals that are beyond description.”

The author of this great aggression will be Russia. Mari Loli, one of the Garabandal visionaries, said: “. . . Russia will unexpectedly and suddenly overrun and overwhelm a great part of the free world.” And Conchita’s Aunt Antonia heard the visionaries in ecstasy say: “If we don’t amend our ways, Russia will take over the whole world.” At the moment when all will seem lost, God will intervene. Fr. Joseph Brennan, O.C.S., who summarized the prophetic statements made by saints, blesseds and popes, put it this way: “They foretell a time of unprecedented and terrible confusion and suffering unlike anything ever experienced in human history. It will affect every area of human life. Everything on earth, including the earth itself, will be shaken to its core. Many institutions will never rise again though they be very ancient. Christianity will undergo its most severe test of yet. There will be many casualties, many purifications. Such confusion will reign that it will appear that Christianity has almost vanished. But then, as if to fulfill what Jesus said, ‘Unless those days be shortened no flesh shall survive,’ there will be a direct Divine intervention, both amazing and terrible, that will completely reverse the course of world events. As a result of all this there will be a turning to God that will match the apostasy from God that preceded it, with the result, as Our Lady said at Fatima, that ‘an era of peace will be granted to humanity.’ This will be a peace such as the world has never known and it will endure, apparently, for a considerable period.”

The event that will be “both amazing and terrible that will reverse the course of world events” has been called at Garabandal the “Aviso” which translates roughly in English as the Warning. You can read all about it in our FOUR PACK series devoted to Garabandal’s last four things and in our FREE Special Edition.

But the dawning of a new day for the Church will be the result of another supernatural event predicted at Garabandal-the great Miracle which Conchita said will be the greatest that Jesus will have ever performed for the world. She added that the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima will be as nothing in comparison. Our FOUR PACK gives all that is known about  this future miracle. The last event in the supernatural triduum predicted at Garabandal is the Chastisement which is conditioned on how the world responds after the Warning and Miracle. See our FOUR PACK.
