Fr. Ramon Andreu's Notes: Part Two, Post 31

San Sebastián de Garabandal—June 21, 1962

Dear Maximo and Araceli, I’m happy to say that when I received your letter we were all well, thank God. Maximo, this is to tell you that the Virgin has given us another message and it is this.

The Virgin has told us that we don’t await the punishment but that it will come without us awaiting it because the world has not changed and she has already told us this twice, but we don’t pay attention because the world is worse. We have to change a lot and we haven’t changed at all. Prepare and confess because the punishment is coming soon and the world stays the same and I say that the world hasn’t changed at all, and it is shame that it does not change soon because a very large punishment will come if the world does not change.

Maximo, now we have apparitions every day in the cuadro from 9 to 10 (PM). We had an apparition with the Angel last night at 11 and we had an apparition of the Virgin until 12. We didn’t go back to our houses until 6 in the morning because we were praying rosaries as the Virgin told us to do until the early morning.

Well, I don’t have anything more to say so I’ll say goodbye by saying I love you.

Tell your children hello and give Araceli a tight hug for me.

My parents send their regards.

Note: This was a sad, frightening night. The whole village prayed the whole night and at 6AM they confessed and received the sacrament, believing that the world was going to end. Two nights later, this fear was repeated. The girls went up to the Pines alone to pray, and while crying, they had apparitions.
