TUESDAY, JULY 3, 1962:

Conchita and Aniceta with the family's little donkey (1964).


As the "voice" had asked her, from this day on Conchita began to spread the news of the "Milagrucu," first of all warning the village, then writing to the main witnesses of the events of San Sebastian de Garabandal: "People will see the Host, that the Angel will give me,
appearing on my tongue" . . .
[From 'Garabandal' Book, page 138]

Conchita is preparing everyone of the "Little Miracle", but wait till you hear what happens in our next installment. It shows us how weak people's faith becomes when God tests them with patience. I guess we are all the same. How many times have we asked God for some grace and when we don't get it right away, we become impatient and our prayers and faith start to diminish. Even Our Blessed Mother and Saint Joseph were tested with patience; remember when the Child Jesus was lost when He was 12 years old, He tested Mary and Joseph by His absence, until they found Him in the Temple. Mary said to Jesus: "Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been searching for you in great distress." And he said to them, "Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father's house?" [Luke 2:48-49]
