FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 1962:


Jacinta in ecstasy.

A "SIGN" INTENDED TO PROVE THE
AUTHENTICITY OF GARABANDAL

Feast of the Sacred Heart in Spain. For the second time, presumably, Jacinta saw Christ.

The Church, being born from the Heart of Jesus on the Cross, in the Heart of Mary, we will not be surprised that Conchita learned on June 22 that a miracle would soon be granted "  so that people might believe."   This is about the famous "Milagrucu," an answer granted by the Blessed Virgin of Mount Carmel to the urgent wish of the visionaries who, since June 1961, were begging, on the suggestion of the Church authorities (Santander), for a "visible sign for the world."
[Excerpted from 'Garabandal' Book, page 137]

Tremendous signs for the visionaries, who are so young and fragile, and for us to believe! Our Lady takes them from scenes of the Chastisement, visions of the Precious Blood and possibly the crucifixion, a vision of Our Lord to calm them down, and now a promise of a Miracle! And the Miracle is for us "so that people might believe." Not 'will' believe but "might" believe because we have free wills and God never forces us to worship Him or even love Him. But the Miracles are out there for those who are searching for God. And soon we will have the "Great Miracle" at Garabandal, and maybe many in this world "might" believe and be converted. I pray and hope so. How about you?
