THE CHURCH AND GARABANDAL 1966 - 2001 . . .


Pope Paul VI in the Gestatorial Chair"Conchita, I bless you and with me the whole Church will bless you."

This period was to become more and more devoted to spreading the Message, thanks particularly to the Degree issued by the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on November 15, 1966. The Church, in keeping with the true spirit of the SECOND VATICAN COUNCIL, granted a new "responsible freedom" in the field of apparitions, revelations, visions, prophecies, etc.

Obviously, during the last thirty years and more, since the end of the phenomena, there was no lack of shadow and light surrounding the visionaries. First there was to be the period of painful doubts and retractions, but also Conchita's two other trips to Rome, in 1968 and 1969, when she was again invited and greeted by the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Second, there was also certain attempts, indeed aborted and which, in any case, occurred after the authentic facts, of the intervention of the Evil One at San Sebastian de Garabandal, up to the actions, less enlightened than intentionally negative, of Msgr. Puchol, Montis and Cirarda. Finally, there is the position of the "wait and see" adopted by the present Bishop, Msgr. Jose Maria Vilaplana, a providential one for Garabandal. . . .

 And so that's what we are doing, "wait and see"! And see we will when the Warning, Miracle and Great Sign come upon this mixed up world. We will all see our sins and certainly be sorry for them! We will believe! We will be happy because the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will come at that point in time and we will have an Era of Peace! Just "wait and see!"
