Fr. Ramon Andreu's Notes: Part Two, Post 33



The Bishopric of Santander and Garabandal



The note broadcasted by the Bishop of Santander on October 9, 1968 produced a wave of letters and articles that demonstrated an opposition to the Bishop’s conclusions about Garabandal.


 This is serious because it suggests the state of feelings which were detrimental to the authority and credibility of the Bishop of Santander. This weighs everything down, and it is that which permits the awaited happenings to produce themselves. No one believes that the ecclesiastical authority will pass over the Bishop of Santander and support the happenings of Garabandal in the future.


 As a result, it is much more useful as a good ending to everything we hoped, and for us to try to understand the bishops of Santander and the notes they have given.



 It is certain that Our Mother in Heaven wants everything to arrive at a good end. The position of the bishops, though it seems contrary to ours, is not an impossible obstacle and has its explanation, which, once understood, fills us with faith and confidence as well as gratefulness to the bishops and the commission since we see their conduct as the immense prudence of the Church. In their conclusions, so different from those of the common feelings of others, we see the will of Providence, who has served as that exact instrument, as it has served the seers.


 As a preliminary reflection, we should consider the justice that we can establish the charisma and effects in relation to the bishop’s notes, and we can see that there are two points of view.


 If the note contains conclusions contrary to our convictions, we judge the intention of what has been written from this conclusion.


 And that, by trying to understand the situation and intention of the writing, we deduce what the note produces. We can understand from this point of view when we have a favorable mindset, that we can’t extend the acceptance of the facts because of matters of form and conscience.



 Also, everything that is said and written about Garabandal, whoever the author, is dependant upon the end of the matter, so they are only personal opinions, possibly very respectable, but none of them have the valor of knowing the resolution. The only thing that has weight or importance are the sworn declarations of the seers, witnesses, and official informants; facts given freely, without any physical, moral, or religious motive, because in these cases it would be null. Also, only official documents from the hierarchy, local or Vatican are valid.



 With this preamble made, we’ll continue with the history of Garabandal, understanding that the notes have been written in these terms, which everyone knows.

San Sebastián May 4, 1963

Hail Mary!

Mr. Masimo Foerschler,

Dear Sir: I’m going to answer your letter to say that I won’t forget to pray for your son. How was the operation?

You told me that the one who saw apparitions (Lourdes) made a very beautiful grotto and that the devotion of the people is very beautiful as well, but that the other is only comercial and that you’ve seen it. Is this true? You say that you didn’t feel the emotion here, but that the faith of the people and the grotto were very emotional. I thought that it was something else. St. Bernadette’s home was very beautiful.

Well, I have no news from here since there are no apparitions. Regards to your wife and children. Loving salutations from

Conchita González

Pray so that the Virgin’s message will be completed.

The Virgin and her Child will reward you.


Note: The apparitions ended.

" . . . be very good."

These words of the Blessed Virgin Mary, spoken to our 
modern world through the visionaries of Garabandal, 
summarize the entire Garabandal event.
Unnervingly simple, they also echo the basic salvation 
message of Scripture. John the Baptist was saying
the same thing when he cried our, "Repent, repent,"
as was Jesus when He said, "You must be made
perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect," and
St. Paul in telling us to "walk in love, as Christ
loved us" and to "be imitators of God as beloved
On October 18, 1961, about four months after the
start of the apparitions in the tiny mountain village
of Garabandal, Spain, many people gathered and 
waited in heavy rains outside the village church
to hear the first formal message of Our Lady.
The people were disappointed by the simplicity
of the words: "... be very good."

Garabandal and priests

108AAAA9-F41D-401B-BCC2-7F22B2F57BC7 4.000000 Letter Letter\envelopes.imf Business Stationery Envelopes SU1CTDEsNDYsgUmBSYWBwSQkJCTFTTiJhShNiYGFME0wNDSRTZ04kZEwkTiNnTA0nUmBSYFJgSxJTUJMMiwwLCxJTUJMMywwLCw= repeat #ffffff X-ASN,X-ASH,X-AN,X-AP,X-AD ;

This message is clearly in line with the teaching of the Church and of great importance.


The visionaries acquired a profound desire to pray and offer sacrifices for priests and to foster this practice amongst the laity.

Our Blessed Mother many times told the children the necessity of sacrifices and prayer on for priest. She said that their true vocation is self sacrifice imitating that of Jesus Christ. The failure of a vocation concedes a lack of devotion on behalf of the laity spiritually obliged to uphold these men in their labors.

As Conchita expressed in a 1971 message, "Let us pray a lot for priests. We ourselves are to blame for many priests who are on the road to perdition, because we do not pray enough for them, because we do not sacrifice ourselves, and also because we should be giving an example to those priests who are consecrated to the Blessed Virgin...We have to help those priests...that they may rise and pursue their course."

When asked in 1966 what the Blessed Virgin desired of priests Conchita replied;

"What the Blessed Virgin wants from the priest first of all is his own sanctification.

-He should fulfill his vows through love of God, and lead many souls to Him through example and prayer, for in our time it is difficult otherwise.

-May the priest be sacrificed through love of souls in Christ!

-May he retire from time to time in silence to listen to God who speaks to him continually.

-May they think a lot about the Passion of Jesus so that their lives are more united to Christ the Priest and thus invite souls to penance and sacrifice, and also make more tolerable to them the cross that Christ sends to us all.

-To speak of Mary who is the surest one to lead us to Christ and also speak about and cause people to believe that there is a heaven, so too there is a hell."

Fr. Ramon Andreu's Notes: Part Two, Post 31

San Sebastián de Garabandal—June 21, 1962

Dear Maximo and Araceli, I’m happy to say that when I received your letter we were all well, thank God. Maximo, this is to tell you that the Virgin has given us another message and it is this.

The Virgin has told us that we don’t await the punishment but that it will come without us awaiting it because the world has not changed and she has already told us this twice, but we don’t pay attention because the world is worse. We have to change a lot and we haven’t changed at all. Prepare and confess because the punishment is coming soon and the world stays the same and I say that the world hasn’t changed at all, and it is shame that it does not change soon because a very large punishment will come if the world does not change.

Maximo, now we have apparitions every day in the cuadro from 9 to 10 (PM). We had an apparition with the Angel last night at 11 and we had an apparition of the Virgin until 12. We didn’t go back to our houses until 6 in the morning because we were praying rosaries as the Virgin told us to do until the early morning.

Well, I don’t have anything more to say so I’ll say goodbye by saying I love you.

Jacinta González

Tell your children hello and give Araceli a tight hug for me.

My parents send their regards.

Note: This was a sad, frightening night. The whole village prayed the whole night and at 6AM they confessed and received the sacrament, believing that the world was going to end. Two nights later, this fear was repeated. The girls went up to the Pines alone to pray, and while crying, they had apparitions.



This story is as appropriate today as it

was when first told in 1971

 Conchita of Garabandal 10
“Walking is to suffer ….
resting is to be happy”


Ave Maria
Dear Wor
kers of
the Blessed Virgin
Although these words are
only mine
, accept them on faith
as representing the wish of the
Blessed Virgin for each one of
us. Fulfill and make others fulfill
the Message by your example,
prayers and words. We are now
nearing the last times.
God’s Messages to us are not
(only) things to remember and
admire. We must fulfill them
and spread them. The harvest
is great and the time very short.
Christian unity is necessary
among the workers. Through it,
you receive more graces from
He who seeks God will
always find Him. One can find
Him in church as well as at
a dance, in a drunken person
and a drug addict as well as in
a priest. It only depends upon
the love and confidence that the
person feels for God.
Do you want to be happy?
Then retire alone with God for
a few minutes. Place yourself
in the presence of God and
of your own soul. Then with
utter sincerity, recognize your
faults. Ask God for the grace
to overcome them and try with
all your strength day after day,
moment by moment, to correct
them. Then you will begin to
feel completely happy. Your
faults are the only things that
will make you feel miserable
and unhappy. Also, in your
moments of intimacy with God,
remember the qualities that God
has given you. Put them to good
use, and give Him thanks. I
assure you whoever reads these
lines that you will be happy.
Remember that this life is a
journey where the trail we must
follow has been blazed by the life
of Christ. Do you suffer? Fine,
Christ goes before you. Carry
your suffering with joy because
when you suffer, God is closer
to you. Are you happy? That is
fine, too. It provides a rest on
your journey. You have to reach
the goal in this way, walking
and resting. Walking is to suffer,
and resting is to be happy. The
goal is heaven, the house of the
Father where the Blessed Virgin
waits with outstretched arms to
receive you and admit you very
quickly. She will not let St Peter
detain you very long. She, with
her mother’s heart, will quickly
obtain the eternal happiness you
Give God your will and
ask the Blessed Virgin never
to permit you to do anything
contrary to God’s designs for
you. Ask her also to teach you
to be happy and to smile in your
suffering. Pray for me.

[Video] A Visit to Garabandal


by Caroline Bullen

Before leaving Spain after touring around Cantabria and Austria, we spent 3 days at La Pisa, a family run guest house, in the pretty, picturesque village of Aniezo, close to the ancient village waterwheel ("la pisa") that gives the hotel its name. Amazingly, we discovered that Aniezo was in a more temperate valley, just behind the next ridge of mountains standing behind Garabandal. The homely, comfortable accommodation is owned by John and Gwyneth from England and offers a warm hospitality, open log fire and really good food. It is well worth a stay if visiting Garabandal.
An added attraction, unknown to us at the time, was a yearly procession of the statue of Our Lady taken to the village church in Aniezo from a shrine in the mountain (Our Lady of Light), and carried by foot in the longest Marian procession in Spain, covering 24 kilometres through beautiful areas of Liebana to the monastery of Santo Toribo, and back again.

50th Anniversary of "The Little Miracle!"

Hat-tip to Glenn Hudson for this reminder!
Today is the 50th of " The Little Miracle". July 19, 1962, a visible miracle happened which had been announced in advance. Conchita was given communion by the ArchAngel Michael, and when Conchita put out her tongue all of a sudden a host appeared. There were many people around her and one man had a movie camera and got some pictures of the event, at around 1:00 AM.

Fr. Ramon Andreu's Notes: Part Two, Post 30

San Sebastián on June 20, 1962

Dear Maximo, only four words to tell you the message that the Virgin told us yesterday, June 19th. The Virgin has told us that we don’t await the punishment but without waiting for it, it will come because the world has not changed and no one is paying attention because the world is worse and we have to change a lot, but it has not changed at all. Prepare yourselves and confess because the punishment is coming soon and the world continues the same, the world has not changed at all, and it is a shame that it does not change soon because a large punishment is coming if we don’t change. Since you have changed, don’t be afraid. We have to say this to everyone even Fr. Andreu. This message was told to Jacinta and me. A very tight hug to Araceli and Rolf, and a loving salutation from—

María Dolores Mazón

(Continuing on another side of the same letter)

Dear Fr. Ramón, although you haven’t answered me, I’m writing to you because I think about you a lot and I would like you to come here. This that you see in Maximo’s letter is for the whole world, so that we will be better, and when you return I’ll tell you everything the Virgin has told us. A very tight hug from—

50 Years of Garabandal


"For me, it marks the 50th anniversary of having
contemplated the greatest beauty in this world..." Conchita

"Thank you, Fr. Rolando for having given me the opportunity of repeating
The Message of Our Mother..."

Ave Maria


May17, 2011

Dear Fr. Rolando,
     I unite myself to the 50 years celebration since the events at Garabandal took place. For me, it marks the 50th anniversary of having contemplated the greatest beauty in this world. I give thanks to God for having been part of such an experience, impossible to describe, but which sealed in my soul a sure Faith, full of hope. Thank you, Fr. Rolando for having given me the opportunity of repeating the Message of Our Mother, there, in the village. The Angel said,

    "Because My Message of October 18 was not carried out and made known, I will tell you that this is the last one.
Before the Cup was full; now it is overflowing. Priests, Bishops, and Cardinals are on the path to perdition and they are taking many souls with them. Less and less importance is being given to the Eucharist. We must ward off the wrath of God with our efforts. If you ask forgiveness sincerely with all your soul, He will forgive you. I, your Mother, through the intercession of the Archangel Michael, want to tell you that these are the last warnings. I love you very much and do not want your condemnation.

     Pray to Us sincerely and We will give you what you ask. You must offer more sacrifices. Think of the Passion of Jesus.”

    Fr. Rolando, I cannot tell you anything more important than the Message of Our Mother.
                United in Prayer,

Conchita in ecstasy gives the
Crucifix for M. Masure to kiss.

Rev. George F. Almeida, Marian Garabandal Priest has Passed on to the Lord . . .


By Father Jay Finelli a priest of the Roman Catholic Diocese
of Providence in the state of Rhode Island. June 27, 2012

A great "priest" goes to the Lord

Rev. George F Almeida
Born in Newport, R.I. on Nov. 23, 1931
He was ordaind a priest May 1, 1965
God called him home June 27, 2012
Will lie in state on Monday,
July 2nd from 4-7 PM
in Holy Ghost Church,
73 Linden Street, Attleboro, Ma.
Mass of Christian Burial will be
celebrated on Tuesday,
July 3rd at 11 AM in
Holy Ghost Church.

June 27, 2012 – I received the sad news that my dear friend Fr. George Almeida passed away suddenly this morning. Fr. Almeida celebrated the 7:00 am morning Mass at my parish, administered the Sacrament of the Sick to a parishioner before heading to another parish for a second Mass. After finishing Mass, he returned home to the Priest’s Residence. In the words of one of his fellow priests in the retirement home: “We had finished having our usual animated breakfast and we left the dining room about 10:30 to go to our rooms. The housekeeper found him on the floor in his room about 11 AM. He was already dead.”

Since I arrived at Holy Ghost as pastor 10 years ago, Fr. George Almeida, a priest of the Diocese of Fall River, MA has been actively involved in the life of my parish. Fr. Almeida has covered Masses on my day off, and vacations, he has covered from funerals and assisted with Confessions. Not only was Fr. Almeida a great help to my ministry and the parish, but he served as my weekly confessor. He always had kind and encouraging words: “Your doing a great job, keep up your good work.”

One priest from his diocese often told me: “Fr. Almeida is the happiest priest in the diocese.” Indeed he was a very happy priest! He was a delayed vocation, hearing God’s call “at the age of 37.” Having served in the Navy aboard the USS Midway. It was during a pilgrimage to Lourdes with the Catholic Chaplain and 30 other sailers that he heard the call. ”During my privacy in prayer, I felt Our Lady asking me to enter the priesthood, as I looked at her beautiful statue in the grotto.” Throughout the years, Fr. Almeida has had a deep love and devotion the Our Lady. Each year, he served as chaplain for a pilgrimage group to Garabandal, Spain and returned to Lourdes on several occassions.

Fr. George Almeida Far Right

The story of Fr. Almeida is so inspiring when we hear so much negative news about the priesthood. Like so many faithful priests, Fr. George Almeida lived his priesthood with all his heart, not seeking any recognition, yet, he light shined bright for all to see.

Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May they rest in peace. Amen. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen

Fr. Almeida
“Imitating Mary’s ‘yes’”

"I owe a great debt of gratitude for the Blessed Mother calling me to the awesome gift of the priesthood. She has protected me during my 44 years in the priesthood. Without her, I could not persevere. I dedicate this article to her. I pray that she continues to inspire me to be a faithful and humble servant as a priest, and helps me always to thank you, God, for the gift of the priesthood..."

True Cross of Jesus Crucifixion Monastery of Saint Toribio, Spain


While I was in the Navy aboard the aircraft carrier, USS Midway, the Catholic chaplain, Father Mattiello from Lilly, Penn., invited the sailors to go on a pilgrimage to Lourdes, France. About 30 men signed up to go with him, and I was one of them. We left Marseille by train.

When we arrived at Lourdes the next day, Dec. 29,1952, we went directly to our hotel in the afternoon, and settled in before we had a nice dinner in the evening. We were supposed to visit the grotto the next day to attend Mass with our chaplain.

After dinner, however, I asked two of my buddies to go with me to see the grotto, because I couldn’t wait to see it. We brought along some empty wine bottles to fill up with Lourdes water to bring back to the States. I think that we were at the only hotel open during the winter and no religious stores were open.

We arrived at the grotto about 9 p.m., and we were curious to see what it looked like at night with all the candles burning. It was very quiet; no one was at the grotto when we arrived. So I asked my buddies if we could kneel down and say the rosary, and they agreed. It was now getting colder, so they wanted to return to the hotel. I told them that I would stay a little longer by myself before returning to the hotel.

During my privacy in prayer, I felt Our Lady asking me to enter the priesthood, as I looked at her beautiful statue in the grotto. I didn’t think I was worthy of such a calling. I also loved being in the Navy operating a teletype in the department of communications, since I was assigned to a rear admiral who was in charge of the fleet in the Mediterranean Sea. I belonged to the “Flag Staff” and had planned to remain in the Navy for 20 years, and retire at the age of 37!

As I contemplated the calling from Our Blessed Mother, however, I couldn’t refuse her request. She had said “yes” to the Archangel Gabriel when she was asked to become the mother of Jesus, so I consented to her calling with great humility. I had the privilege of serving at the altar in the grotto the next day at 8 a.m. It was so cold that I served with my peacoat. After Mass, the chaplain invited the men to go into the bath, but only two of us — another sailor and I — accepted. The others were afraid of catching a severe cold. We did not even catch a sniffle.

I went back to Lourdes in 2002 to give gratitude to Mary for my calling. I was the main celebrant at the grotto on Saturday, April 13, 2002 at the 7:30 Mass, almost 50 years to the day I was called to the priesthood on Dec. 29, 1952. What a jubilee!

I left the Navy with an honorable discharge on March 17, 1954. I began my preparation for the priesthood when I entered the seminary in September 1955. I loved the seminary, which gave me the chance to increase my spiritual life both intellectually and prayerfully.

I found out much later when I met Father Manuel Ferreira, who now lives with me at the Cardinal Medeiros Residence, that he was on the USS Midway at the same time I was aboard, though we didn’t know each other. He was assigned to the engineering department. He and I went to see the aircraft carrier on Sept. 18, 2007. It’s now a museum in San Diego. Our tour of the aircraft carrier brought back many memories.

I owe a great debt of gratitude for the Blessed Mother calling me to the awesome gift of the priesthood. She has protected me during my 44 years in the priesthood. Without her, I could not persevere. I dedicate this article to her. I pray that she continues to inspire me to be a faithful and humble servant as a priest, and helps me always to thank you, God, for the gift of the priesthood and for three wonderful parishes as a pastor: St. Elizabeth’s in Edgartown, 1981- 1988; Holy Family in East Taunton, 1988-1997; and Our Lady of Fatima in Swansea, 1997-2001.

My years as a pastor were exactly 20 years of love, service and joy leading God’s people toward the kingdom of Heaven. I ask God to bless them for being so respectful to me as a priest of Jesus Christ. They are forever in my prayers with a loving heart.

Father Almeida, ordained on May 1, 1965, is a retired priest of the diocese living at the Cardinal Medeiros Residence in Fall River.

Dear Masimo,

You don’t know how happy I am to hear that you’ve been baptized and are Christian. When I told the Most Holy Virgin she laughed. Now that you’re Christian, please pray to the Most Holy Virgin so that I will be very good and I won’t forget about you. I won’t tell you more now—please send my regards to your wife and a salutation from one who loves you—

A Summary Of The Message Of Akita in Relation to Garabandal:

Akita, Japan 1973 - 1984 

The Tears and Message

Akita statue weeping

In June of 1988, Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger approved the Akita events as "Reliable and Worthy of Belief." 
This was the first approval of a Marian apparition in over 50 years! 
There were five wonders at Akita: 
1. Tears flowed from the statue of Our Lady 101 times, from Jan. 4, 1975 to Sept. 15, 1981 (Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows). [On Sept. 28, 1981, Sister Agnes suddenly felt an Angel at her side during adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. A bible appeared open before her eyes and she was invited to read Genesis 3:15...the voice of the Angel was heard explaining that the passage had relationship with the tears of Mary and then said: "There is a meaning to the figure 101. This signifies that sin came into the world by a woman and it is also by a woman that salvation came to the world. The zero between the two signifies the Eternal God who is from all eternity until eternity. The first one represents Eve and the last the Virgin Mary."] 
2. A cross-shaped wound on the left hand of Sister Agnes (main seer) bled profusely, causing great pain. 
3. An identical wound appeared on the right hand of Our Lady's statue, from which blood flowed three times. 
4. Sister Agnes, who had been declared to be incurably deaf, was completely cured at a time predicted by Our Lady. 
5.In the midst of these wonders, the Angel and Our Lady appeared and spoke . . .giving messages of world - shaking importance. 
Our Lady has has already told us at Fatima and Garabandal what we must do. We can believe that when a sufficient number are responding, there will be miracles of Grace in the world turning back the tide of evil and issuing in the "era of peace for mankind" promised by Our Lady. 
Bishop Ito of Nigata, Japan, said that Akita is an update of Fatima... and its promise. 


The Blessed Mother gave Sr. Agnes the following message on August 3, 1973: 
"My daughter, my novice, do you love the Lord? If you love the Lord, listen to what I have to say to you. It is very important. You will convey it to your superior. Many men in this world afflict the Lord. I desire souls to console Him, to soften the anger of the Heavenly Father. I wish, with my Son, for souls who will repair by their sufferings and their poverty for sinners and ingrates." 
"In order that the world might know His anger, the Heavenly Father is preparing to inflict a great chastisement on all mankind. With my Son I have intervened so many times to appease the wrath of the Father. I have prevented the coming of calamities by offering Him the suffering of the Son on the Cross, His Precious Blood, and beloved souls who console Him forming a legion of victim souls. Prayer, penance and courageous sacrifices can soften the Father's anger. I desire this also from your community. That it love poverty, that it sanctify itself and pay in reparation for the ingratitude and outrages of so many men..." 

The final message is very serious: 
"As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms that will remain for you will be the Rosary and Sign left by my Son. With the Rosary, pray for the pope, the bishops, and the priests." 
The work of the devil will infiltrate even the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres...churches and altars sacked, the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord. The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of My sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them." 
"With courage, speak to your superior. He will know how to encourage each one of you to pray and accomplish works of reparation." 

Sacred Heart and King of Kings

Eucharistic Prayer of Akita 
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, TRULY present in the Holy Eucharist, I consecrate my body and soul to be entirely one with Your Heart, being sacrificed at every instant on all the altars of the world and giving praise to the Father, pleading for the coming of His Kingdom. 
Please receive this humble offering of myself. Use me as you will for the glory of the Father and the salvation of souls. 
Most Holy Mother of God, never let me be separated from Your Divine Son. Please defend and protect me as Your special child. Amen. 

Our thanks to Brother George Roth, O.S.F. (now Father), for this outline and info.

Sister Agnes, seer of Akita, Japan.

1) Insert the Fatima Prayer (O' my Jesus...) after each decade of the Rosary. 
2) Say the Eucharistic Prayer (similar to the Morning Offering). 
3) "Pray with fervor, not only because of your own sins, but in reparation for the sins of all men." 
4) "Pray very much for the Pope, priests and Bishops." 
5) "With devotion to the Sacred Heart, apply yourself to devotion to the most Precious Blood." 
6) The Heavenly Father is preparing to inflict a great chastisement on all mankind. 
7) "Prayer, penance and courageous sacrifice can soften the Father's anger." 
8) "Without attaching too much importance to form, be faithful and fervent in prayer." 
9) For religious: The importance of the three vows, especially obedience. 
10) A chastisement, worse than the deluge, is at hand. 
11) "Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary." 
12) "With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests." 
13) Problems within the Church: the demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. 
14) "Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary. I am still able to save you the calamities which approach." 
15) Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is not taken seriously. "Speak to the greatest number in order to console the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. Spread this devotion with courage for Their greater glory." 
16) "Those who place their confidence in me will be saved." 
17) "Believe, trust, pray!" 
18) Devotion to St. Joseph is very pleasing to Jesus and Mary. He should be publicly honored. 
19) Attach great importance to the first Saturdays. There will be sufferings and obstacles. Do not fear. In bearing them and offering them you will be protected. 

In addition to the above is the graphic message of tears and blood and of Our Lady's use of a secular institute . . . a group of catechists . . . involved through the blood and tears as a community, a prayer group. 
At Fatima Our Lady used a group of three. They prayed together, they sustained each other in trial (even that of dry martyrdom), and they helped each other to persevere. 
At Akita Our Lady again emphasizes the value of prayer groups, of community. She even says that She Herself is gathering such groups now to prevent the chastisement . . . to soften the wrath of God. If the chastisement is averted, we shall have the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart and an "era of peace".

Fr. Ramon Andreu's Notes: Part Two, Post 27

San Sebastián de Garabandal—October 2, 1964

Dear Masimo,

I’m happy upon receiving this letter to find you well and in the company of your wife and children. I offer thanks to God.

Masimo, this is so you know that I think a lot about you even though I don’t always write. I always remember you in my prayers and I ask the Lord and the Most Holy Virgin to keep you well and living in your faith so that it grows more in your heart. Well, please pray for me as well so that I will be better. We also have to pray for the sanctification of the priests so that they will be holy. Masimo, there are many good priests but there are others who are bad and we have to pray for all of them so that the Lord and the Most Holy Virgin will make all of them very good. If they were all good, that they would give us a good example of the truth because they represent Christ on earth, and if they’re not then they give a bad example. We also have to pray for the missions and the Pope’s intentions and the success of the Council. We have to pray for the whole world, so that those who are good will be better and those who are bad will be good. You already know Our Lady’s message, that if the world doesn’t change a punishment will come, and it will come because the world does not change.

Masimo, on September 30th we went to see Fr. Andreu—my father, Ceferino, Loli, and I all went to Reinosa. You don’t know how happy Loli and I were to go to the house. We were sad to not be able to be with Fr. Andreu more; we were there for a very short time. It will be two years on January 13th, so you can understand how much we wanted to come.

Masimo, when you come (it will be a year in June), when you come, Masimo in the last letter you wrote to me you asked about my brother Marcelo. I can’t tell anything now because it’s been three months since he’s written to us, but we know that he’s in Gran Canaria because my mother’s cousin…well I won’t put down anything more because you’ll already be tired of reading my handwriting.

Say hello to Araceli and Ralf for me, and my parents and siblings send their regards.

When you come, we’d like to see you. Goodbye. Don’t forget us.

Jacinta González

Conchita says hello because you did something as great as becoming Christian and receiving Jesus our Father and he loves us and we have to obey him. I won’t forget you before the Virgin and in my humble prayers—Conchita González
