Question Regarding Three More Popes Prophecy

The End Of Times

Conchita with her mother Aniceta and the family donkey 1965Question from reader Thomas:

It is my understanding that Conchita or one of the girls was told by Our Lady in one of the apparitions that after Pope John XXIII, there would be 3 Popes left, yet there have been 4 - Paul VI, John Paul I, John Paul II and now Benedict XVI. I'm confused, can you help me out?


Many believers in the apparitions of Garabandal have been worried about the effect the death of Pope John Paul II [and now the retirement of Pope Benedict XVI] has in relation to the predictions of Our Blessed Mother. To make the matter as clear as possible, we offer these quotes from Conchita's own diary. The announcement about the last Pope and "the end of the times"

It was during the early part of June 1963, the bells of Garabandal started to ring. The following conversation then occurred between Conchita and her mother, Aniceta:

Conchita: "The bells are tolling for the dead! It must be for the pope (John XXIII, 1958-1963). Now only three remain."

Aniceta: "What nonsense are you talking about?"

Conchita: "It is not nonsense. The Virgin told me: After this pope there will only be three more."

Aniceta: "Then what? Will it be the end of the world?"

Conchita: "The Virgin did not say the end of the world but the end of time."

This excerpt is from Ramon Perez's book "The Village Speaks."

We are now in the "end of times" which is a very difficult thing to explain (see below). There will be more popes elected. We are not looking at the end of the world but the end of an epoch.

God bless,

Conchita: "One day I said to the Virgin, at the time of the future events (warning, miracle and chastisement), 'Will that be the end of the world?' "

And she answered me "No, the end of time."

What is the meaning of "the end of the times" el fin de los tiempos"?

In English, the translation is: "the end of our epoch", or "the end of these times". It is also satisfactory to say: "The end of the present period."

Conchita told Fr Marcelino Andreu: "When you see the warning you know we have opened up the end of time."
