Fr. Ramon Andreu's Notes: Part Three, Post 9


On August 8, 1961, we met Fr. Royo Marín in San Sebastián de Garabandal. Fr. Luís María Andreu, S.J. came with us also; he had been to San Sebastián three times since July 19th.
Fr. Valentín Marichalar was the parish priest from San Sebastián who gave Fr. Luís the key to the Church and asked him to be the parish priest since he had to go to Torrelavega. I observed that Fr. Luís was very happy when he told me: “Faito, today I’m the pastor of Garabandal,” and he joked with me in this way.

The Mass was celebrated in the church in San Sebastián; the number of people who witnessed it was extraordinary, as were their emotions.
