The Pope will go to Russia ?

The Pope will go to Russia ? -

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."]
By Barry Hanratty
    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.
   On the two nights preceding the feast of Corpus Christi in 1962, the young seers of Garabandal had visions; but the visions they saw on these nights were far different from the ones they had become accustomed to seeing. They were heard screaming in terror as future events unfolded before their eyes. At the Virgin's request, the onlookers were to keep at a distance and this injunction was faithfully observed. But even though farther away, the girls' screams were so terrifying that shock-like currents rippled through the huddled crowd causing tremendous fear. Witness Manolin Diez said these unearthly screams were not the normal screams of 12 and 13 year old girls.
    The second night was the worst as the visionaries saw scenes of the Chastisement God will send if the world does not change after the Warning and Miracle. Since the Chastisement will be the subject of the last part in this series we will say no more about it now.
    Our focus here is on what the girls saw the first of these two nights which have come to be called las Noches de los Gritos — the Nights of Screams. On that first night, they saw the time before the Warning, a time of great trial for the Church and the world.
    Conchita was not present with the other three on this first night. She had a bad knee so her mother did not allow her to go out. Interestingly enough, she went into ecstasy in her house anyway and fell to her knees with such force that they started to bleed. It is unlikely that she saw the same things as the others although some of the revelations seem to have been imparted to her as well. Later, in subsequent visions, she will learn more.
    Their tear-stained faces and incoherent speech immediately afterwards attested to the trauma experienced by Jacinta, Mari Loli and Mari Cruz during the first night of screams and it doesn't appear that they gave any details of what they experienced for quite some time.
    Mari Loli seems to have been the first to speak about it when in 1967, she provided information to a Mexican priest, Father Gustavo Morelos. Three years later, the same information, in the possession of Maria Saraco, had been written down and confirmed by Mari Loli with her own signature. It reads as follows:

    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.]
    This first revelation about communism would be expanded upon further by the visionaries in later years.
    With the coming down of the Berlin Wall and freedom being granted to the former Eastern Block countries, it appeared as though communism — at least Russian communism since much of Asia is still red — was finished. And this is what the media proclaimed. However, everyone was not convinced. A few short years ago while in Canada, I spoke with a priest from an Eastern European country who had lived under communist rule. He said that Americans are very naive in thinking that communism is dead; in his country today, the same people who were in power under communism are still in power. Another gentleman, a Ph.D., from a different Eastern European country, expressed the exact same sentiments.
    According to Garabandal, communism will again be a force to be reckoned with in one final attempt at world domination. On September 29, 1978, Father Francis Benac, S.J., interviewed Mari Loli at her home in Massachusetts. Here are some of the questions and answers pertinent to our subject.

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.]
    This last statement of Mari Loli's should make us wonder if the blame for all that is wrong in the Church today has always been properly placed. It seems very little consideration has been given to the possibility that an evil force has deliberately infiltrated the Church with the intention of trying to destroy it. The other day I was speaking with Harry Daley, author of Miracle at Garabandal Harry was a good friend of the late Father Walter Ciszek, S.J., who spent 15 years in Soviet prisons and Siberian labor camps, and lived to tell about it in his book With God in Russia (Ignatius Press). Harry visited Fr. Ciszek (a believer in Garabandal by the way) often and on one of his visits, Father went to great lengths explaining how the communists tried to recruit him, promising him all kinds of benefits, if he would work as their agent in the Church and join the network that was already in place.

    What geographic areas will experience this communist persecution? Some references have been made specifically to Spain.
    On February 23, 1943, Sister Lucy, the sole surviving seer of the Fatima apparitions who spent 21 years in Spain at Tuy and Pontevedra, sent a statement to Bishop Antonio Garcia of Tuy-Vigo which read: "If the bishops of Spain listen to the desires already manifested by Our Lord, and begin a true reform of the people and clergy, then it I will go well. But if not, she (Russia) will again be the enemy by which God will punish her once more."[SHE WENT IN HASTE TO THE MOUNTAIN] And Conchita has said that communism will return to Spain, [GarabandalNuevo Pentecostes, 1984.] but she went on to say that it will suffer less than other areas of Europe because of the persecution it had already endured during the Spanish Civil War (1936-39) where 13 bishops and more than 7,000 priests and religious were put to death.

We asked the Virgin what this great trial was called and she told us it was "communism."
PHOTO: Of all the visionaries, Mari Loli has revealed the most of what Our Lady said about communism.
    Would the persecution just be in Europe? When Loli was asked that question she responded that the way she saw it, she thought it would be more than that. Conchita's Aunt Antonia testified to having heard the visionaries say in ecstasy that "if we don't amend our ways, Russia will take possession of the whole world." [GARABANDAL — EL PUEBLO HABLA by Ramon Perez.] If that be the case, then the persecution will in all likelihood go beyond the confines of Europe. But it appears that Europe will feel the brunt of it as the following excerpt from Garabandal-Der Zeigefinger Gottes by Albrecht Weber indicates:
Conchita mentioned that Padre Pio, during her visit with him, said to her "The great wonder of God [Miracle] must be paid for with much blood throughout Europe." [Since this information is new to many English readers we contacted Mr. Weber to confirm the source. He responded that Conchita mentioned it in the presence of his mother, Eloise Deguia and himself, and that his mother wrote it down word for word.]

    Aside from Garabandal, this great trial has been mentioned in the writings of saints, popes and blesseds as summarized by Fr. Joseph Brennan, O.C.S. in his article "Prophecy for Our Time" that appeared in the May 1983 edition of the Homiletic and Pastoral Review: "Christianity will undergo its most severe test of yet. There will be many casualties, many purifications. Such confusion will reign that it will appear that Christianity has almost vanished."
    With no human force able to stop the persecution, God will have to intervene. Jacinta told Frenchmen Ramon Perez and Jacques Serre in 1979: "These difficult events will take place before the Warning because the Warning itself will occur when the situation will be at its worst."
    This is corroborated in Father Brennan's article: "But then, as if to fulfill what Jesus said, 'Unless those days be shortened no flesh shall survive,' there will be a direct Divine intervention, both amazing and terrible, that will completely reverse the course of world events."
    An excerpt from the above mentioned German book further informs us:

    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."
    For our further reflection, keeping in mind that prophecy is a charism of the papacy, is this quote from Blessed Pius IX : "There will come a great sign that will fill the world with awe. But this will occur only after the triumph of a revolution during which the Church will undergo ordeals which are beyond description."
    We don't know when all this will happen, but Albrecht Weber's book 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."]
    A worldwide communist takeover led by Russia will appear to have succeeded and in the midst of this frightful aggression will be a harrowing persecution of the Church. Priests will have to go into hiding, the churches boarded up and it will become very difficult for the faithful to practice their religion. It will seem as though the Church had disappeared. The duration of this persecution is not known but it will take an act of God, the Warning, to stop it.
    To close on a positive note, we again quote from Fr. Brennan's 1983 article:

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.

“Inevitably, today I received a letter from the Bishop in which he told me that since the 18th has passed, he doesn’t think it convenient for you to continue in Aguilar de Campoo, nor does the Bishop of León, in whose province this is.

Spanish Video: Garabandal the 50th Anniversary Evidence

Garabandal the 50th Anniversary Evidence -

May 17, 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 o
ffer 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,
My Comment : below a video in Spanish of the 50th anniversary of the Apparitions of Garabandal (1961-2011), with Father Rolando, the current Priest of Garabandal (beginning and end of the video only), reading Conchita's message and recalling the Second Message of our Lady of Garabandal, who can imagine that the Current Priest of Garabandal could read a message from the main seer of an unapproved Apparition by the Church yet without THE CONSENT of his Bishop and for the 50th anniversary of this Apparition, of course none of us and what's about Rome ? who can think a second that Rome will not react specially if this well known Apparition was supposedly prohibited to any faithful or diabolic as the enemy of Garabandal keep telling us, who can imagine that, none of us of course, The Bishop and Rome were quiet but how come ? something new or our Lady of Garabandal had finally convinced them but they can't confirm it yet? I'll let you find the answer.

3 Times a Day -

3 Times a Day -

3 Times a Day
Many mails of tiredness, many have been waiting for so long, many are sick as well, some do not believe anymore, some other faithful are already dead…..etc…..
Yes I know, you have wait since years now but stay strong, the last line will be the most difficult, the way to the Great Miracle but let me remember you this Testimony from Joey Lomangino :
I was at home recuperating, when I was awakened from a sleep and heard a beautiful voice: "Joey, do you want your eyesight back?" "Yes, I do." "Then pray seventeen Hail Marys, seven Acts of Contrition, and five Our Fathers, three times a day." Then I fell back to sleep. When I awoke I told my mother what had taken place. She said that maybe it was an angel or the Blessed Mother and she told me to say the prayers. I have said them from that day on.
17 Hail Marys
7 Acts of Contrition
5 Our Fathers
One day, in March of 1964, while in Garabandal, I hesitated to ask Conchita a question which was on my mind. I did not want Conchita to think that I was a bit strange — thinking I was having visions or anything like that. I related the story about the voice I had heard when I was home in bed recuperating and the dream I had after the fall in the blind school. She said, "I will ask the Virgin."
On April 1, 1964, my Spanish neighbor translated a letter which I received from Conchita, dated March 19. It began this way.:
"Dear Joey,
Today in a locution at the pines, the Virgin told me to tell you, 'The voice you heard was hers.' And that you would receive new eyes on the day of the great Miracle. Also, that the house of charity which you will establish in New York will bring great glory to God."
From the Book “Miracle at Garabandal”

My Comment : did someone has wait more than Joey ? I don't think so, 87 Prayers a day told him our Lady in 1948 but who is able to Pray 87 Prayers a day, none of us so if Joey can wait, you and me must AND will wait, be patient as all is between the lines.
Blessed is your Name Joey

Fatima, The consecration on the way ?

Fatima, The consecration on the way ? -

June 2013
Pope Francis is not easy to categorize, but it is not the Pope’s job to conform to any ideology or faction within or without the Church. It is his job to preserve and propagate the Faith, and the Holy Father was on the job during the Feast of Corpus Christi, on which he called for an hour of universal Eucharistic adoration.
And there is this important aspect of the Pope’s request: he asked that all the churches in the world participate at the same time (between 5pm and 6pm Rome time, on June 2). We cannot recall such a specifically timed request of a Pope to the universal Church in recent history. But we know that universal participation — at the same time — is a condition laid down by Our Lady of Fatima for the consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart.
Exactly how many churches responded to the Pope’s request on Corpus Christi is difficult to estimate, but reports indicate that the Holy Father was joined in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament by the Faithful in thousands of dioceses throughout the world. One can only imagine the graces that are being poured down on our suffering world as a result of this massive act of adoration.
And the Pope has now set a precedent for universal, simultaneous prayer. We know that most of the bishops would obey the Pope were he to ask them to participate in the consecration of Russia, as requested by Our Lady of Fatima, to whom the Holy Father has consecrated his papacy. We must hope and pray that this act of consecration will come soon. And we now have strong reason to hope.
While Pope Francis was leading the Corpus Christi procession in Rome, something was happening in Russia that hadn’t happened in 96 years: the Blessed Sacrament was being carried in procession through the streets of St. Petersburg, the historic capital of Russia.
Neither the Orthodox Church, nor the government intervened to stop the procession from taking place. This is, in a word, astounding. After almost a century of suppression, Catholics were permitted to carry Our Lord in public procession along the thoroughfares of the city that served as the capitol of Russia when it was still a Christian nation. What does this portend?
We know that Russia has been chosen by Heaven to play a crucial role in salvation history. The Miracle of the Sun at Fatima — the greatest public miracle in history — confirmed Our Lady’s prophecy that, in the end, Russia will be consecrated to Her Immaculate Heart. When this is done, Our Lady said, Russia will be converted and a period of peace will be granted to the world. Certainly, the re-emergence of public Eucharistic adoration in the nation whose errors of atheism and materialism have spread throughout the world has a significance that cannot be overestimated.
We also know that the Message of Fatima was preceded by angelic apparitions in 1916 that focused on the importance of the Eucharist. An angel appeared to the children holding a chalice, with a host above the chalice. He taught them a prayer of adoration and reparation. The angel told them that many not only do not adore Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, but they commit outrages against His Holy Presence. He asked them, by their love, to console Our Lord for these outrages.
The angel then gave Lucia the Host, and distributed the contents of the chalice to Jacinta and Francisco. The children were also told that it is by the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, joined to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, that sinners will be converted.
Could Pope Francis be preparing us for the consecration of Russia? The Holy Father is bringing the world back to Our Lord in the Eucharist. Will he then bring Russia back to the Church through the Immaculate Heart? Let us pray to Our Lady that it may be so — and soon. (picture from

My Comment : Pray and Pray for our Holy Pope, we must help him with our Prayers, all of us.

The Holy Eucharist Testimony

The Holy Eucharist Testimony -

“We must make many sacrifices, perform much penance, and visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently”.
What is sacrifice? What is penance? What is the Blessed Sacrament? You know, we know, but do we all really know? Have you researched everything you can find on Garabandal? Waiting on news from there?
Time is near but aside from that, discover the free will to love and to serve God without fear. Live like Jesus was due back yesterday. Live like you have already had a correction of conscience and know exactly what is required of you. Do not delay your salvation any longer. Do not judge others, for you WILL be judged. I say this as a humble sinner reflecting on my own misunderstandings and distractions from living the actual messages of Garabandal by focusing on the prophecies.

Bastiano, an exclusive Interview -

Bastiano, an exclusive Interview -

June 22nd 2013 (translate from French to English by Aviso)
1. Hello Bastiano, can you briefly introduce yourself and tell us what are your links with Garabandal?
Hello Aviso, born on February 8th, Feast of the Heart of Mary, 62 years, my links with Garabandal began in 1971, when in the army in Germany, my mother designated by Father Laffineur as the right hand of Father De Bailliencourt in 1969, asked me to be an apostle of Garabandal and did sent me a copy of the Prophecies about the warning, the miracle and chastiment to distribute around me. I often accompanied my mother in her apostolate for Garabandal and its pilgrimages thereafter, and I am currently the heir of the Garabandal archives which the originals were given to Bishop Del Val who brought them to Rome, to the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith, which Cardinal Radzinger was the head. I am in touch with Don Rolando, the current Priest of Garabandal, more closely since 2011 when I learned that the church of the village was in danger, I called him to offer him my help and to inform all the websites online linked to Garabandal, what I did.
2. Do you know the “seers” of Garabandal, did you meet them?

I know the Garabandal seers of course, I knew Jacinta quiet well as my mother invited her to our home in Garabandal and I join her to Santander to meet the bishop who was Bishop Del Val at this time. I regularly see her in the village.
I know Mari Cruz having met her in the village, I often spoke to her mother Pilar who gave to mine a cross containing a relic of Our Lord, kissed by the Blessed Virgin, a cross we were giving to be kissed by the pilgrims.
I did not knew Loli directly, or met her, I know very well of course her sister Sari.
Finally Conchita, I met her when I accompanied my mother to New York, they were like sisters and my Mother was also the Godmother of one of her daughters. I also met Conchita in Fatima few years ago, I can call her whenever I want and when it’s necessary, she has also my contacts, our relations are excellent.

3. You told me that you talked to Conchita by phone recently, can you give us some news?

Yes I talk to Conchita few days ago by phone to have some news from her and from her family, she was very well and her family too but I will ask to all of you to pray for her and her family, as for Jacinta and Mari Cruz who need our prayers.

4. Could you make an own update regarding the Garabandal Prophecies and do you think that we are still far from the fulfilling of the Prophecies?

As you can see, the disasters, the global situation, the persecutions, the crisis in the Church, shows that we approach every day to the conclusion, and more than ever I want to say that we must be in a state of Grace, if it’s not yet the case and to put also into practice more than ever the messages given at Garabandal by our Lady.
5. Do you have any opinion about Medjugorje and what do you think about those who are linking Garabandal and Medjugorje ?

I know very well what happened in Medjugorje and I read all the investigations about this Apparition, I never been there, Garabandal summarizes for me all the apparitions as the Garabandal apparations are eschatological. to reply to your question about those who are linking Garabandal and Medjugorje, I can tell you that there is not any link, Father Laffineur, pioneer of Garabandal said it formally, we do not have to mix X or Y with the events of Garabandal. On this subject I learned that some supporters of Medjugorje were the authors regarding a rumor that we could see the miracle in Medjugorje as some other people or false prophets (how else to call them ...) are also saying it! I am telling it formally that these people mislead souls ... the Miracle will be seen in Garabandal and from the surrounding mountains, those who will not be in Garabandal that day will not be able to see the Great Miracle.

6. Do you think we can talk seriously about Garabandal without being in Garabandal ?

I think many talk about Garabandal because of the books they have read on the subject but many also do not believe in Garabandal anymore, as the main members of the Commission had rendered their judgment virtually without visiting the village and had questioned everyone except the main witnesses were badly mistaken, and with them the Bishop and the faithful, it would be good for people who seek the Truth to go to the village as their testimony thereafter will be more authentic. Garabandal is the Carmel, Our Lady came to show us the way and to follow her messages but many lost their time in vain researches ... As Conchita said, there is no point to believe in Garabandal if we do not puts the messages into practice.

7. What do you think about the New Pope Francis, do you have any opinion ?

I think that the new Bishop of Rome, with his voluntarily wish to not sit at St. Peter, Jesuit as the Jesuit Padre Luis Andréu, corresponds to a specific agenda of Rome and we will discover the reason quiet soon so I am waiting for his actions, and I think we should be cautious regardless of that, under this pontificate many surprises can happen, hoping they will not be bad.
8. Do you have any other private and unknown revelations for us Garabandalist that you could tell us exclusively for this Blog?
You know I do not like that, regarding Garabandal, especially for those who focuses on the wonderful side, we had already many signs like those showing photos and videos of the girls in ecstasy and it should be sufficient proving that something supernatural happened to convert and it is the purpose of the coming of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Garabandal, to convert. Well I may add a little unknown story about Mari Cruz, one Day Pillar her Mother seeing her daughter crying not to see the Virgin decide to come down from the Pines on her knees .. her daughter Mary Cruz reciting the rosary next to her ... a few days later the Holy Virgin appeared to her ... the lesson is that parents by some sacrifices can get a lot for their children .. at least that's my conclusion ...

9. A word about Joey Lomangino, due to his age now we should be close to the Prophecies, what do you think ?

About Joey, I think it is not a question of age, if the miracle had already taken place, we’ll never talk about his age, don’t you think so? The prophecy about him is important as a result of the Miracle, and that day, many will have new eyes, if you understand what I mean?
So Joey is therefore an instrument, but the prophecy concerning the Aviso and the Miracle, in my opinion, do not depend of him but of the state of the world and loss of consciousness of God and sin.

10. What do you think about this blog and can you remind us yours?

This blog that you started must serve as a springboard to improve knowledge of the facts of Garabandal and to alert your readers of the urgency of conversion, he must serve the souls to discover that the best works of the Holy Virgin, their love for their religion grows and I’ll end with these words from Conchita: "Who loves Garabandal, loves the Church ..."
Words to meditate in these days of darkness on the horizon.
The Link of my humble blog is below and I thank you in promoting it:

My Comment : thank you Bastiano, Bastiano is the son of Mrs Bocabeille well known in the village and by the seers, Mrs Bocabeille is with God now and was buried in Garabandal (attached picture), she is the only non Spanish who rest in Peace in the village, an honor reserved to her only.

Rest in Peace Mother

Oh Mary Cruz, Mary Cruz !

Oh Mary Cruz, Mary Cruz ! -

The negative note at Garabandal is struck by Mary Cruz. The Church's justified attitude is no doubt due to her, but we should not overlook the fact that all the visions that have eventually turned out to be God's work have passed through a negative stage of confusion and controversy.
We ought not, in principle, to be surprised that a matter as delicate as the possible presence of the supernatural should be surrounded by a certain atmosphere of confusion and some contradictory aspects in which positive and negative arguments mingle at one and the same time. Such confusion justifies the Church's prudence and the fact that It has deferred final judgment until there is full confirmation in the form of a miracle. If there were no question mark hanging over Garabandal; if Garabandal were a clear, indisputable, proven affair, and if it had the Church's backing from the outset, then, faith in Garabandal would be entirely devoid of merit of any kind, and the reaction of the multitudes would make the normal course of its history impossible. If Conchita's statement about the curing of the sick who are present on the day of the miracle were believed out of hand by mankind en masse, on account of clear, unquestionable evidence of the reality of her assertion, then, the reader can picture what it would be like . . . The entire world would react and all mankind would strive to gather at a single geographical point; survival would be impossible. Divine Providence has, therefore, always permitted these prodigies to be surrounded by a certain air of confusion, contradictions and negative arguments, which are eventually cleared up by a spectacular miracle in the presence of a large number of people who are worthy of that grace. Only in this fashion can the human development of such events follow its proper course. It was not for nothing that Jesus Christ also spoke in parables in the Gospels.

Fr. Ramon Andreu's Notes: Part Three, Post 41

Report by Mr. Antonio Nistal Betia, November 4, 1961.

“At ten forty at night, in the moment in which Pilar was giving her a cookie, Loli entered into ecstasy.

She was still for a moment in the chair where she was sitting with an ineffable smile.

Suddenly she went up the stairs to the second floor and took a crucifix, which was on top of a table. With the crucifix in her right hand, and the cookie in her left hand, she gave the crucifix for those present to kiss (the family and two married couples we didn’t know).

Later, she descended the stairs. At that moment, her uncle, who she blessed with the crucifix, entered and she blessed him and gave it to him to kiss.

A few moments later, she ascended the stairs again and walked backwards and went toward the table again. She took a medal from it and offered it to the Virgin to kiss, with the smile that never left her face. Pilar, seeing this, removed the medal she was wearing and put it on the table.

The girl took it, presented it to the Virgin to kiss, and then returned it to Pilar.
I, Antonio, seeing this, took a memento from Fr. Luís María Andreu out of my wallet and put it between the knuckles of the fingers on my right hand, with which I held the crucifix. It was 10:45 P.M. I tried to withdraw again to try to touch it and when I proved that it was like this, I left it.

She moved her hand and, accentuating her smile, said clearly: “It is Fr. Andreu.” She raised her hand once or twice more and when she dropped it, it was normal and she put it in her back pocket; she had her left hand in her jacket.

She returned to Pilar and blessed her, as she had blessed her uncle. She knelt and then turned backwards until she was on the floor. She moved up until she was sitting and she descended the stairs again in that position. On the ground floor, she gave the crucifix to be kissed again, and sat in the same chair she had occupied at the beginning of the trance and began to bless herself badly (still smiling). She repeated it again, and always badly. She was heard saying: “When do I do it well.” “I don’t know, I don’t know.” “Now, yes.” “No, no?”

She continued making the first two crosses well (over her forehead and mouth). When she made the third over her chest, she smiled more and did it badly. She continued like this for some time. I heard her say: “Well, now I do it well.” Effectively, she blessed herself and made the sign of the cross correctly then returned to the normal state.

Talking later, she assured us that she did not remember standing up from the chair, and that, without moving, she was following the Virgin.

The Great Miracle, a Jesuit connection ?

The Great Miracle, a Jesuit connection ? -

1. Father Luis Maria Andreu : The Jesuit Priest of Garabandal
The name of this Jesuit priest will forever be linked to the history of Garabandal. Of all priests, was Fr. Luis Andreu singled out to be the priest who saw the Great Miracle, On that day of August 8th 1961, he was able to view beforehand, by a most singular favor of the Virgin and Heaven, what neither the visionaries nor anyone else has as yet seen, The Garabandal Great Miracle, in the morning of the 09th August 1961, he went to Heaven with Joy.
Today is the happiest day of my life !
A simple Priest, A Jesuit, has been chosen by Heaven to see the Great Miracle, not the seers, not a faithful, not a Nun, not a Bishop, not a Cardinal, not a Theologian, not a priest from an other order or even an unbeliever…..etc….NO….. A Jesuit Priest only and so what?
2. What The Virgin Wanted from Priests?
Conchita’s answer on July 29th 1967 to a young French Priest (from the Book “she went in haste to the mountain”) :
  1. His own sanctification, fulfilling his vows for the love of God
  2. Leading many souls by example and prayer…….
  3. To be Sacrificed out of love for souls in Christ
  4. That at times he retire in silence to the God who speaks to him constantly
  5. That he meditates frequently on the passion of Jesus…..
  6. To Speak of Mary, who is the most secure way to lead us to Christ
  7. To Speak about and make people believe that if there is a Heaven, there is also a hell.
What most pleases God ? Humility
What most displeases God ? the sin of Pride
The Pope will see the Miracle from wherever he is at the time………3 Popes and the end of Times…….(but 1 will not count because of his short reign, John Paul I has been Pope for 33 Days only……For your information, Conchita had never confirmed this fact and the 4 Popes rumor officially, as Bastiano confirmed it to me few days ago and we must respect the main seer before anyone else or rumors in any case… I take alone and front of God, the responsibility of this rumor on my blog and may our Lady of Garabandal forgive me)…………..Paul VI, John Paul II, Benedict XVI……..1, 2, 3.....
3. Pope Francis : The First Jesuit Pope in History
On March 13th 2013, Pope Francis has been elected as the new Vicar of our Lord, he is also the first Jesuit Pope in history, The surprise election of Pope Francis came about because of a series of supernatural “signs”, one of the leading Cardinals in the Roman Catholic Church has claimed, first none European Pope in 1300 years, known for his Humility, love for our Lady and Poor, few days after his election only, Pope Francis asked the consecration of his pontificate to our Lady of Fatima, done 2 months later on May 13th 2013.
My Comment : So is Pope Francis, the first Jesuit Pope in history, the Pope who will see the Garabandal Great Miracle ?as Father Andreu the Jesuit Priest was the first to have seen it, no one know it but it’s my conviction and why ?
with Heaven Coincidences do not exist, if our Lord had chosen a Jesuit Priest between all the Priest to be the first Priest to see the Great Miracle could not be a coincidence, so it’s my conviction, if the first Jesuit Pope in history has been elected in 2013 cannot a be coincidence, so it’s also my conviction, if a number of Popes has been gave by our Lady before the end of times cannot be a coincidence, so it’s again my conviction, if a Pope will see the Great Miracle from wherever he is, cannot be another coincidence, so it’s still my conviction.
A Pope has been already chosen by Heaven for the biggest Great event since the birth of our Lord, so if a new Pope who is known for his humility, his love for our Lady and Poor has been elected in 2013 after an incredible resignation cannot be yet another coincidence then it’s also and finally my last conviction.
Speculation, nonsense, coincidence? Maybe, not in my opinion but not in my opinion only.
Pope Francis, the first Jesuit Pope in history

Conchita attacked by the Devil as many Saints and Holy seers

Bastiano, A unique Testimony -

Conchita attacked by the Devil as many Saints and Holy seers
A unique testimony from Bastiano, my good Garabandalist Friend, close to Conchita since years now, he had a phone call with her yesterday, he is talking about this story on his own blog, his goal is not to reveal a private story known by few only but to show us, Garabandalist and the others, a confirmed fact and to reply also to those who attacked Garabandal since years now thinking that Garabandal could be a devil apparition, as he said to me by phone yesterday, since when the devil can attack a (main) seer strongly for years if the Apparition she represent is a devil apparition, it does not make sense and it is impossible.
I translate myself his testimony, you know now my English so thank you again for your understanding.

The Great Miracle Month -

The Great Miracle Month -

All the evidences below are recorded and confirmed.
The Great Miracle month: APRIL ?
1st Evidence 1983 recorded :
From the book” Miracle at Garabandal” from Harry Daley
Chapter 9
On one visit I asked her (to Conchita) a couple of things about the Miracle. My most frequent question, of course, is "When will it be?" With a smile comes her usual reply:
While we are talking about the Miracle, you mentioned that Garabandal is no mystery to you. It is simple: either it happened or it didn't, and the Miracle will prove that. But a mystery was made when I gave some of the events that would correspond with the great Miracle; I suppose I did this myself. What I was trying to do was not to have people coming to Garabandal long before it was going to happen. There is just no need for it. There wouldn't even be a place for them or enough food. I'd like to give the date and get it over with, but I am not allowed and I am sure the Virgin knows best. I will also tell you that it is going to happen either in April or May. So, if the Warning came in June, people would never expect the great Miracle in July. I cannot tell you how far apart the Warning and the Miracle will be, since I do not know when the Warning will occur.* *(A conclusion can safely be drawn here that Conchita certainly would not have the people come if the Warning happened more than a calendar year before.)

Who is The Garabandal Eucharist Martyr?

The Garabandal Eucharist Martyr -

The Great Miracle : The Miracle will be on the feast day of a young martyr of the Eucharist, a boy……

On a day in September of 1963, some French people were invited to eat dinner with Conchita in a house near the girl's home. She was devouring pastries with the healthy appetite of girls of her age. Someone jokingly asked her about the sacrifices and penance mentioned in the message. Conchita accepted the joke in good humor and laughed. But suddenly she became quiet and seemed to concentrate; her face lit up; and with her hands joined on her chest, she began to speak:
«The Miracle will be on the feast day of a young martyr of the Eucharist, a boy who carried Communion to persecuted Christians. His companions, on seeing him pass by, wanted to force him to stay and take part in their games. Infuriated by his resistance, they ended up hurling stones at him until he was left almost dead. Later a Christian soldier came, who recognized him and carried him in his arms.
One of those present exclaimed: Oh, that's St. Tarcisius!
Conchita, without saying a word, as if she hadn't heard, turned back to her pastries.
After dinner ended and Conchita had left, those at the table exchanged their impressions. The oldest in the group concluded: It seems that Conchita saw this scene in an ecstasy, but without understanding what martyr it was. I don't think she even knows his name. (L'Etoile dans la Montagne)

Fr. Ramon Andreu's Notes: Part Three, Post 40

The situation of these phenomena is between two extremes:

1st—It is a natural phenomena triggered by self-persuasion through a relaxed process.

2nd—It is a supernatural phenomenon.
Omitting that one of these two solutions has the most probability of being true, it is possible to anticipate the following:

1st—For a natural solution, we don’t know how long these phenomena will last, since surprises occur in the length of the visions and the girls’ health, as well as in the normal state.

2nd— If everything is in supernatural terrain, then it seems that these phenomena have been rather prolonged. The girls have heard the Virgin many times, in alluding to the fact that many do not believe, smile while saying: “They will believe.”

The girls themselves have announced that they have to communicate two new messages, one per year, even though the girls still do not know them.

A sentence that circulates around the village is that God doesn’t send things anonymously, but he has found in this village a response, the sentence that the ordinary is signed at the end, although its precedence can be distinguished by the letter.

Fr. Ramon Andreu's Notes: Part Three, Post 39

On the 18th, at night, three of the girls announced that they were not going to see the Virgin for a few days, according to what the Virgin said. The fourth girl was going to have visions.
On the 19th, none of the girls had visions.

On the 20th, only one of them had a vision, as was predicted. It was like that for a few days, in which only one of the girls had a vision, until Wednesday, the 25th, when “Jacinta left the Rosary (I’m citing the integral paragraph) and fell into ecstasy for approximately an hour; she went to the calleja and prayed for the sinners and for peace in the world. She said: “They don’t believe us anymore, did you know? So you have to perform a very large miracle, so that they will believe again.” The vision said that she should go to that same place to pray on other days.

Things have a new rhythm that has grown with the trances. The visions on Thursday and Friday were at different times.
Once again, they ascend curious and descend impressed. It is like a second wave that it reborn in the vicinity of San Sebastián de Garabandal. In a conversation in Puentenansa one person said that they had believed in what was going on with the girls, that they stopped believing on the 19th, and now they believe again. Note—This matter torments a large number of people from provinces near this place, among whom say that this is absurd news.

Little Known stories about Garabandal 6: A Fatima Connection? 18 June 1921 - 18 June 1961, Exactly 40 Years after

Little Known stories about Garabandal 6 -

Reprinted with kind permission from GARABANDAL JOURNAL January-February 2006
    All true apparitions of Our Lady have their own uniqueness. Lourdes has its grotto, Fatima its cova and Garabandal its calleja. But while the locations and characteristics of each manifestation change, the messages which the Blessed Virgin comes to deliver are similar and almost always include requests for prayer and penance.
    But when Our Lady appeared at Fatima in 1917 she did something she had not done before: she addressed messages specifically to the entire world. And while she appeared again after Fatima at Beauraing (1932-33) and Banneux (1933), she did not speak to the world at either of those places. But at Garabandal we again find this universal appeal. Although Fatima and Garabandal are separate events there is continuity in the revelations and similarities in features of the events not found among the other visits of Our Lady during the Marian Age.

Bottom left: Scenes of the crowd at Fatima October 13, 1917, when the Miracle of the Sun occurred.

Bottom right: the Pines in Garabandal where the great Miracle is to take place.

    At both Fatima and Garabandal an angel appeared first to prepare the way for the Blessed Virgin. At Garabandal it was Saint Michael the Archangel and at Fatima the Angel of Portugal. At both Fatima and Garabandal the visionaries received Communion from the angel, the only two apparitions of Our Lady where this occurred.
    Both Fatima and Garabandal had a visionary named Jacinta.
    At Fatima in August of 1917, to prevent the young seers from going to the site of the apparitions they were detained in jail by civil authorities. At Garabandal in July of 1961, Conchita, who was thought to be the ringleader and the one influencing the others, was taken to Santander where she was detained for several days.
    At Fatima, the seers saw a vision of hell. At Garabandal, the seers saw visions of hell on earth in the tribulation and Chastisement.

Right: the Pines in Garabandal where the great Miracle is to take place.
    At both Fatima and Garabandal a great miracle was/is to serve as the seal of authenticity for the events. At Fatima Our Lady said she would perform a miracle so all would believe. At Garabandal she said as a result of the miracle "all will believe."
    The Virgin appeared at Fatima as Our Lady of the Rosary thereby giving great emphasis to that powerful and important Marian prayer. At Garabandal the rosary theme continued with the visionaries being commanded by the Virgin to pray it during almost every apparition.
    Our Lady herself taught them the mysteries and how to pray it well.
    In the sixth apparition at Fatima on October 13, 1917, during the tableaux of visions during the Miracle of the Sun, Our Lady appeared as Our Lady of Mount Carmel with the scapular on her wrist. On July 2, 1961, the Virgin appeared at Garabandal as Our Lady of Mount Carmel with a large brown scapular draped over her right arm.
    At both Fatima and Garabandal, Russia was mentioned. At Fatima, Our Lady warned that if people did not change, Russia would scatter her errors throughout the world. At Garabandal she said that if people do not change, Russia would rule the world. At Fatima, the Virgin said that as a result of the Collegial Consecration (which some believe has been done while others do not) Russia would be converted. At Garabandal, Conchita was told by Our Lord in a locution that Russia (and other countries) would be converted as a result of the great Miracle.
    The following excerpt is taken from THE IMMACULATE HEART — the True Story of Fatima by (Fr.) John De Marchi, I.M.C., published in 1952:
    Though no attempt has been made in this volume to describe the fulfillment of Our Lady's promise to return to the Cova da Iria a seventh time, it can be said with certainty that the apparition did take place. It occurred June 18, 1921, Lucia's last day in Aljustrel before leaving for the convent school at Vilar. That evening, having left her home and paying a last visit to the Cova da Iria, she is said to have seen Our Lady standing at a spot now occupied by the lower steps of the Basilica. I wrote to Sister Lucia about this, but have not yet received a reply. I have, however, been assured by a priest very close to Lucia that she has confirmed the happening.
    At Garabandal, Saint Michael first appeared to the visionaries in the evening (8:30 P.M.) of June 18, 1961, exactly 40 years (a biblical number) to the day (and even the same time of day) from the last vision at Fatima.

Little Known stories about Garabandal 4 – Conchita meets Sister Lucy

Little Known stories about Garabandal 4 –

Sister Lucy to Conchita : “don’t I know you ?”

One of the three visionaries of Fátima, Sister Lucy, was still alive (and is at this writing) during our visit. Conchita told me that once when Sister Lucy was receiving visitors that she was one of those lined up to say hello to her. When Conchita met her, the nun looked up and said, “Don’t I know you?” Conchita made light of this as she told me the story…….
