WHAT HAS BECOME OF THE VISIONARIES?




All four of the visionaries are married and have left the village.

Mari-Cruz married Ignacio Caballero in May 1970. They live at Aviles in the Asturias. They have four children, Ignacio-Manuel, Maria- Lourdes, Juan-Carlos and Gabriel.

On May 26, 1973, Conchita married Patrick J. Keena in Long Island (N.Y.), where they live. The visionary also has four children: Maria- Conception, Miriam Fatima, Ana Maria-Josefa, and Patrick Joseph Maria.

Mari-Loli married Francis LaFleur in Brockton, Massachusetts, on February 2, 1974. They live in that State of the U.S.A. They have three children - a fourth having died at an early age: Francis, Melanie Maria and Maria Dolores.

Jacinta married Jeffrey Moynihan, a Californian, at Garabandal, on February 21, 1976. They settled in California. They have a daughter, Maria.

Remembering that what was written here about the visionaries was from the year 2001, so I really don't know what and where they are now, except we know Mari-Loli died in April 2009. May she rest in peace! I get a few magazines concerning Garabandal and the May-June 2007 issue of "Garabandal International" has a short story about Conchita buying a home in Fatima, Portugal, where she hopes to announce the Great Miracle under the protection of Our Lady of Fatima! I will try to keep you posted of any other updates on these things.
