MARCH 1963:


Conchita had been suffering a great deal ever since the month of January from not seeing the Blessed Virgin. Because she already knew the date of the great Miracle, she felt how much one must be able to wait . . . actively. Assailed by the doubts of her entourage, she, too, was beginning to waver . . . when she heard Mary's voice interiorly for the first time telling her: "Have no doubts that my Son will perform the Miracle."

This first of the two locutions that Conchita was to be granted as early as March 1963, gave her "a joy and peace still greater than when [I] saw the Blessed Virgin . . . for then I have Our Lady inside me!," she explained. Fascinated by "this voice of intimate happiness without words," Conchita was henceforth "as certain," as she said, "that the Miracle would come, as 2 and 2 make 4!"

Conchita wrote in her Diary that she preferred locutions rather than apparitions, but still more to receive the Eucharist. She explained that her locutions occurred when she was praying "either in my room, or at the Pines, or again at church."
[From 'Garabandal' Book, page 171]

That's great theology and Faith in Conchita's remark that she preferred the Eucharist over any apparition or locution. It shows where her head is! The Holy Spirit has taught her well! And besides, the apparitions or locutions could be a trick from the devil, but the Eucharist is Real and True, and the center of our Faith! It's a good lesson for us! The Holy Mass and Holy Communion should be our priority each day, and if we can, we should go to daily Mass. That's where we will receive all the graces we need for our life here on earth and prepare us for our life in Heaven.

Jesus, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament, waits for us in His house, the church, enclosed in the tabernacle. He longs for our visit as He keeps Himself a prisoner of love for us! Imagine that! Oh, how many ignore Him! How many are indifferent to His presence! How many rather run to some statue or Icon to light a candle, completely oblivious of Jesus Real Presence!

Could we be the small remnant who will love Him, adore Him, offer reparation to Him for this? It will give Him great joy if we join together and do this!
