TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 1962:




"CORPUS CHRISTI" AT SAN SEBASTIAN DE GARABANDAL

In the early hours of Corpus Christi, all the witnesses and villagers went to confession and received Communion! During an apparition that same day, Mari-Loli would ask the Blessed Virgin "where this Blood that we could see falling in a chalice came from?" "It is the Blood falling from the Heart of my Son," Mary explained to her. [Excerpted from 'Garabandal' Book, page 137] 

Again we find the connection to Fatima! Looking at the picture above, it shows a vision that Sister Lucia had in her convent chapel in Spain around 10 years after the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima. Notice the Blood falling into the chalice from the wounds of Christ. Remember the scene described by St. John in his Gospel, when the soldier pierced Jesus' side with a lance and Blood and water flowed out! See the connection? And Our Lady was with St. John at the foot of the Cross witnessing all this, so She could say to Mari-Loli, "  It is the Blood falling from the Heart of My Son."   I wonder at what the young girl saw that day. Perhaps we shall never know in this life, but certainly will see it in eternity!
