Albrecht Weber's book (the finger of God) contains this statement attributed to Conchita: "The pope will go to Russia, to Moscow". As soon as he returns to the Vatican, hostilities will break out in different parts of Europe." [The source for this information was also requested. Mr. Weber responded: "Conchita said this in a long conversation at her house on November 14,1965."]
To speak of communism today seems almost anachronistic. Isn't communism a thing of the past? According to what the Blessed Virgin told the visionaries of Garabandal the answer is no. Communism will again appear on the scene and cause great suffering before its reign of terror is suddenly ended.
In spite of continuing to see the Virgin, [during the first night of screams] we saw a great multitude of people who were suffering intensely and screaming in terror. The Blessed Virgin explained to us that this great tribulation, which was not even the Chastisement, would come because a time would arrive when the Church would appear to be on the point of perishing. It would pass through a terrible trial. We asked the Virgin what this great trial was called and she told us it was "communism." [SHE WENT IN HASTE TO THE MOUNTAIN by Eusebio Garcia de Pesquera, O.F.M. Cap.]
FATHER BENAC: Did the Blessed Virgin speak of communism?
MARI LOLI: Our Lady spoke several times about communism. I don't remember how many times, but she said that a time would come when it would seem that communism had mastered or engulfed the whole world. I think it was then that she told us that priests would have difficulty saying Mass, and talking about God and divine things.
FR. BENAC: Did Our Lady ever speak of people being put to death?
LOLI: What Our Lady said was that priests would have to go into hiding but I didn't see whether they were being killed or not. She didn't exactly say they would be killed, but I'm sure they would be martyred.
FR. BENAC: Your mother told me that one night you were upstairs with your father and that you cried and cried for one hour. Afterwards your father said to her: "I have just seen the most touching sight. Loli was crying the whole time while saying, 'Oh, it's going to be like that? People are going to suffer like that? Oh, make me suffer!'" Do you remember what you said at the time?
LOLI: It was all related to communism and what is going to happen in the Church and to the people because all these things are to have repercussions amongst the people. When the Church suffers confusion, the people are going to suffer too. Some priests who are communists will create such confusion that people will not know right from wrong.[THE CALL OF GARABANDAL, Apr-Jun 1984.]
HOW EXTENSIVE WILL IT BE?
Mrs. [Christine] Bocabeille then asked Mari Loli: "If you are not allowed to tell me the exact year [of the Warning], perhaps you could tell me approximately when it will happen."
"Yes, it will be at that time when the world will most need it."
"When is that?"
"When Russia will unexpectedly and suddenly overrun and overwhelm a great part of the free world. God does not want this to happen so quickly. In any case the Warning will come when you will see that Holy Mass cannot be celebrated freely anymore; then it will be that the world will most need the intervention of God."

As a result of all this there will be a turning to God that will match the apostasy from God that preceded it, with the result, as Our Lady said at Fatima, that "an era of peace will be granted to humanity." This will be a peace such as the world has never known.
True Information or another Rumor ?
According to my information and after verification, the interview has taken place in Garabandal as indicated by the author of the book, the German author and his wife were also close to Conchita for years, I do not know their relationship today.
This information concerning the travel of a pope in Russia is confirmed in his German’s book (as the rumor about the 4 Popes, Page 143 if my memory is still good) but to my knowledge has never been officially confirmed by Conchita. Now I can not imagine the author to misinterpret this important information from Conchita, to my knowledge the author is known for its reliability and loyalty to Garabandal until today, he was in Garabandal with his book in 2012 for the inauguration of the Church of the village after the works, attached picture, M. Weber with the current Bishop of Santander.
We can also find out some pictures of Garabandal during the Apparition from the author attached and copied in the French version of Conchita’s Diary, I myself saw those pictures and his name under each picture, I conclude that the author may be taken seriously and that this information about the Travel of a Pope in Russia could also be serious, I must also remind you that this information has never been indicated in any other Garabandal books or anywhere else and I have never heard it in the village as well, the Author has also his own website about Garanbandal below but I did not appreciate the purchase page where several things linked to Garabandal are for sale, if we compare with Joey’s Website where all is FREE even the books, so it’s must be also reported even if it's my opinion only.
