Dear Joey: Today at the pines in a locution the Blessed Virgin told me to tell you you will receive new eyes on the day of the Great Miracle. . .

Joey Lomangino, who has dedicated his life to spreading the Message of Garabandal, is totally and incurably blind. But, through the above quote from a letter from the Garabandal visionary Conchita Gonzalez, Joey has the assurance that he will one day see.

Over thirty years ago, a young Spanish visionary named Conchita gave him a card with the Garabandal Message written on it. She asked him, “Will you do it sir, and tell others to do it? Joey’s reply was, “Yes”. He believes this is Our Lady’s Message and he has never turned his back on her.

When I met Conchita in Garabandal in 1963, she was just a teenager. She wrote to me in New York telling me to come to the village in 1965 for the second Message. We have been friends for 36 years.

Recently, we had lunch in her home in New York. She is a grandmother now. Following my heart attack in October 1999, she came to my house to pray and now I was very grateful to be able to return the visit.

We talked about the acceptance of every kind of suffering and the importance of the Holy Eucharist. Conchita said so many people are asking each other what to do and who has the answers, but have forgotten, she went on, that the answer is Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.

" Go to the church by yourself and sit in front of the Real Presence. Listen," she said, "don't talk, listen to the Lord. He will tell you what to do."

She reminded me of the Holy Father and the physical suffering he endures, "This is what makes his efforts especially pleasing to God."

Padre Pio said it best, "If you knew the value of suffering, you wouldn't give it up."
