A BOOK RECOMMENDATION FOR YOU from Retired Bishop +Rene Henry Gracida

A BOOK RECOMMENDATION FOR YOU from Retired Bishop +Rene Henry Gracida | WHAT IS GARABANDAL?






If you are like me you probably have
no difficulty accepting the supernatural character of the
apparitions and other phenomena associated with the events of Fatima of
1917 since they have received the ‘nihil obstat’ and the approval of the
Holy See.   Also, like me you are probably troubled by the
controversies surrounding all other such events and private revelations
that have occurred since Fatima.



The failure of the Holy See to disclose the findings of the
commissions that have investigated Medjugorje and to either condemn or
approve it make acceptance by Catholics around the world difficult and,
conversely, the events of Garabandal  assume increasing importance 
in view of the present growing crisis in the Church.


Edward Kelly’s book, A Journey of Happiness and Hope is not the usual compilation
of reporting on the Church’s treatment of the apparitions and
revelations, but is instead  an autobiographical record of how his life
was changed after he stumbled upon the village of Garabandal as a
tourist in Spain in the 1960″s.  But his book is not simply
autobiographical because it gives the reader insight into the lives of
the visionaries, their families and the other residents of the small
village of Garabandal.  In addition, he does provide a record of the way
the Church, both local and Rome have dealt with the supernatural
element of the events of Garabandal.



A Journey of Happiness and Hope is eminently readable.  I
could not put it down once I started reading it and the fact that Saints
Padre Pio and Mother Theresa of Calcutta were such strong supporters of
the visionaries of Garabandal came as a welcome surprise to me in view
of the reprehensible way in which the bishops of Santander have
mishandled  Garabandal from the 
beginning.


The book is available from Amazon and costs only $15.00.  I highly recommend it.
