A Warning Advisory

by Dr. William Gould 

Director, Russian Garabandal Ctr.

As of the day of this writing in 2013, the Warning remains a prophecy. Its fulfillment is in the future. I am therefore describing certain events whose occurrence will constitute the fulfillment of this prophecy.

The First Event

The first event is prophesied to be something external in the sky, its exact nature unspecified, but which, like the great flash of a close flying meteor, will be startling and will definitely get our attention.

Our Interior

The scene then shifts to our internal world. Normal time and space orientations will be suspended, and all people throughout the world will find themselves in a totally absorbing one-on-one meeting with God. It will be an "out of body" experience which will take place entirely in the spiritual realm.
We will understand that we are before our Maker. God will give us a complete review of our lives to date, and we will see the true results our actions .as well as their immediate and longer term consequences, both for good and for evil.


We will be convinced that the evidence is totally valid and fairly presented, and then God will give us a "mini-judgment." God calls it a "mini-judgment" because it will reflect the outcome of our lives if they were to end at that moment.
The judgment will be in the form of a self-assignment to one of three places—Heaven, Purgatory, or Hell. Nearly all souls not choosing and deserving Hell, will be choosing and deserving Purgatory. We will then return to our pre-Warning state of being, to our "old selves," but with this difference: without exception, we will have been exhorted to improve our lives.

Length Of The Warning

The "clock time" of these events is expected to be quite short, just a matter of minutes. In varying degrees, the recognition of the true nature of our relationship to our God and the real meaning of the events of our lives will be shocking and painful to us. Nonetheless, God has not designed the Warning to be the cause of anyone's death.
It is to be just that—a warning, thus implying a free will choice by us to come afterwards, to reset the course of our lives according to our response. Of course, God is hoping that we will heed the Warning, adjusting our lives so that we benefit from receiving it.

The Warning—A Background

"Warning" is the English trans­lation of the Spanish "Aviso." Native speakers of Spanish have commented that aviso in Spanish has the same breadth of meaning as "warning" in English, ranging from the serious but not necessarily exhortative "travel advisory" to the stern, bolder print Warning! on a bottle of poison.
Yet the weighted average tone in Spanish is apparently more neutral than the implication of some danger which we typically associate with the English word "warning."


In English, we can distinguish between the verbs "to advise" and "to warn" by observing that our advice to someone may emphasize the speaker's role going forward as being in continuing relationship to the person being advised.
The act of "warning," on the other hand, may be stressing the recipient's role in forming his own personal response to the matter at hand. This distinction can be helpful if we consider that everyone accepting this Warning from God will be anticipating His continuing and loving advice.
Such a prophecy was made by the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ. She named  it  "Aviso." From 1961 to 1965, She appeared over 2000 times to four girls at their village of Garabandal in the'Cantabrian mountains of Spain. At different times, She spoke to each of three of the girls about the Warning, and in particular to Mari Loli Mazon (R.I.P. 2009).
Thus, although brief references to such a future event can be identified in the writings of Bl. Edmund Campion (1540-1581) and Bl. Anna-Maria Taigi (1769-1837), who also spoke of a worldwide "illumination of conscience," we can say that the prophecy of the Warning was made by Our Lady of Garabandal.

Coming Communism

A political sign of the times indi­cates that a "Communist Tribulation precedes the Great Tribulation." The Russian Garabandal-Center, founded in 1992 in St. Petersburg, Russia, has provided a detailed analysis of Russia now being a pseudo "post-communist" state, in which an elite of the former Communist Party currently rules with consolidated KGB power and a diabolical disguise for completing their undercover plans for establishing totalitarian rule throughout the world.
It is here that we see the role of the communists, with or without the upper case "C," figures effectively as the visible force preparing the way for the short triumph of up-coming supernatural evil.

Age Of Mary

Our Lady said that if we do not repent, "Russia will spread her errors throughout the world." This era has been called the "Age of Mary" because of the frequency of Marian apparitions everywhere. Nonetheless, despite the great increase in the visibility of Mary's role, the world has remained essentially unchanged from Her last recorded words in The Gospel according to St. Luke, "Do whatever He tells you." +++

Little Known stories about Garabandal 11: Father Luis Andreu, the Fifth Visionary

Little Known stories about Garabandal 11 – garabandalnews.overblog.com.
Little Known stories about Garabandal 11
During their ecstasy, the Girls often song the same hymn to Saint Michael, a very popular hymn sung in the village of Spain (see below) and Father Luis Andreu, who was the First Jesuit Priest to have seen the Garabandal Great Miracle, knew few hours before his “death”, on August 8 from 9:35 Pm in the Church of Garabandal, that he will ‘die” and will be with our Lady in Heaven soon, indeed just few hours later only, on August 9 1961 around 4 AM, he had joined Her full of Joy like our Lady told it to the Girls, undeniable proof of authenticity.

GARABANDAL - EXT. the Calleja — Night — AUGUST 8, 1961 — 9:35 P.M.

The FOUR VISIONARIES kneel down and begin to sing a hymn to St. Michael. When they finish singing the song, they reach up, taking hold of something they see and kiss it. Conchita and Loli remove rosaries from around their necks and extend them to the Virgin to kiss. FATHER LUIS ANDREU looks deeply moved. He turns pale and stares upward in the same direction as the children look. He is suddenly transfixed. Tears stream down the cheeks of Father Luis, and he shows signs of great joy.

Father luis ANDREU (with great emotion in a high voice and a loud husky whisper)
A miracle … a miracle … a miracle … a miracle.
FATHER LUIS, after a moment, returns to normality. The VISIONARIES rise up and, at an accelerated pace, descend backwards down the steep hillside and in a rapid flight or march, they turn and go in the direction of the church.
FATHER ROYO MARÍN Run to the church! The children have wings on their feet! FATHER LUIS, FATHER MARÍN, and all the other SPECTATORS run quickly towards the church. During the descent, both CONCHITA and LOLI drop rosaries they are carrying. Loli’s rosary is of the finger type.

GARABANDAL - INT. sacristy — church of san SEBASTIÁN — night- (after the calleja)

FATHER LUIS takes the children into the sacristy. The PEOPLE follow to the door of the sacristy, but do not enter. The PARENTS OF THE CHILDREN enter the sacristy with the PRIESTS
MARI CRUZ, LOLI, AND JACINTA are standing in front of FATHER LUIS ANDREU, S.J., FATHER SERRANO, DON PARDO, FATHER ROYO MARÍN. THE PARENTS of the visionaries are standing in the room.
Father Luis is taking notes.
Mari LOLI : Conchita went to get a rosary she lost, Father Luis. And I lost yours, too. But we can go and find it. The Virgin told me where I dropped it.
JulIa : But now it’s too late.
Father LUIS : Yes, your mother is right. Tomorrow, in daylight, you can go and find it. If I don’t come back again, you keep it safe and give it to my brother when he comes, because he’ll certainly come.
CONCHITA enters the sacristy panting and out of breath. She goes towards DON PARDO.
CONCHITA : I lost your rosary, Señor, up at the pines. The Virgin told me where to find it. She kissed it for you. CONCHITA hands to DON PARDO his rosary.
Don pardo : (bewildered) Thank you, Conchita.
Father royo MARÍN : What did the Virgin say, Conchita?
CONCHITA : The Virgin wants a chapel built at the pine trees for St. Michael. She also said that soon Father Luis Andreu would be with her in Heaven.
FATHER ROYO MARÍN : Did you see or hear anyone other than the Virgin?
CONCHITA, MARI CRUZ, JACINTA, LOLI : Yes, we saw Father Luis Andreu, and we heard his voice.
Conchita : He said, “Miracle”. The Virgin said he saw the great miracle Jesus will send the world so that we will all believe and live the message.
Father royo MARÍN : Have you seen the miracle yet ?
Conchita, loli, jacinta, mari cruz : No.

(Father Royo Marin to Father Luis Andreu who is still alive)

FATHER ROYO MARÍN : If what they say about you, Luis, is true, we don’t have to go on.
(Father Royo Marin advised Father Luis that if it’s true, they don’t have to go on)
Father Luis : It’s late … you all better go home and go to bed. We have had enough excitement for the night.
(Father Luis who just saw the Great Miracle and still alive, did not answer him)

The PARENTS OF THE VISIONARIES take their children from the sacristy.

Father royo MARÍN : I’m not infallible, but I am a specialist in these matters and am able to state that the vision the children have is genuine. Four different signs indicate to me that there is no reason for doubt
SEÑOR FONTANEDA : Father Marín, if it is as serious as you say, why do you not remain here a few days longer?
FATHER royo MARÍN : It’s impossible for me to stay, but this is so clear that it cannot be anything but true. I also think that it is a serious duty for the religious authorities to come here immediately.
Father Luis: Come, it’s getting very late. We should head back tonight.

Conchita’s Diary

My Comment : 2 Significant détails little known and I am pleased to share them with you today, showing yet again, the Treasure of Heaven that was the Apparitions of our Lady in Garabandal.

1. The Girls often sang a Hymn to Saint Michael during their ecstasy and requested by our Lady, a very popular hymn in the villages of Spain :
San Miguel Arcángel, gran batallador, ……(Saint Michael Archangel, Great Battler)
que en fiera pelea, a Luzbel venció……..(in fierce fight Lucifer beat)
Quién como Dios?, Nadie como Dios……..(Who is like God?, Nobody is like God)
Who can imagine Satan asking the girls to sing an hymn to the glory of Saint Michael, the Archangel, his first enemy after our Lord and our Lady, knowing also that the Girls were use to sing it, since when Satan likes to listen several times an Hymn to the Glory of Saint Michael…….

2. Then and as we can read it in this part of Conchita’s Diary (above), Father Luis Andreu, the First Priest to have seen the Great Miracle, knew the same day, that he was going to join our Lady in Heaven soon as the Girls told him in the Church this night of August 8 which also worried Father Royo Marin who told to Father Luis “If what they say about you, Luis, is true, we don’t have to go on” and that is exactly what happened , Indeed, he joined Our Lady to Heaven few hours later only on August 9 around 4 Am but since when Satan is pleased to tell us that we will join our Lady in Heaven soon……since when ? if you know it, please contact me or prove it.

Fr. Ramon Andreu's Notes: Part Three, Post 63

First Ecstasy 12:00-12:40—Mari Loli

We were in the kitchen of Ceferino Mazón’s establishment in Garabandal at about 11:30 at night on January 26th. Some people from Segovia arrived at Garabandal and were with us for about an hour. Señora Andreu with her daughter, Begoña, the Alfonsos, my wife, and I were there. We were all speaking normally with Mari Loli and her mother when the child communicated that she was going to have a call. After a little while, at 12 exactly (midnight) she entered into ecstasy and in that state she fell from the bench on which she was sitting to the floor, and was there on her knees. She sat up and went upstairs in this state. She took medals and rosaries that were there on a little table, and she lifted them and gave them to the Vision to kiss.
She always held them up, and she arranged various chains with medals on them and gave them to their owners without making any mistakes. She lifted some holy cards and when she lifted one of them she said: “You don’t want to kiss it?—Why? Kiss it! No?—What a shame!” This holy card was a memento from a lady who had passed away only a few days before. Her granddaughter was there and had given the holy card. It is an interesting fact that the young girl was very impressed by this and spent the night praying, from what they told us. The next day, the holy card had been kissed twice by the Vision.

As I said, the girl continued giving medals and rosaries to be kissed; one of them had been given to her by my wife. She said: “For Fr. Andreu.” According to what we found out later, this rosary belonged to Fr. Gómez, a Jesuit who was residing in Valladolid. The previous summer he had been in Garabandal and had given the girl his rosary so that the Virgin could kiss it. This priest had to leave Garabandal while the girl was having a trance, and although he left a note saying to give the rosary to Fr. Andreu, no one had done it in all that time—everyone supposed it was lost. I gave it to him myself in Valladolid, and I am a witness to the emotion and the happiness that this priest felt upon receiving it.

Jacinta was present at this time and was in a completely normal state. Since the girls communicate to each other and see each other in and out of the field of vision, some women from Segovia asked Jacinta to tell Mari Loli to ask the Virgin if she was happy with them. Mari Loli responded when she left the trance that she could not say anything, but later she confided in my wife: “The Virgin said that they should pray more and be better.” When this sentence was said to these women, they became emotional, and according to what we’ve heard, these were the exact words that Fr. Andreu had said to these girls when they finished the Spiritual Exercises. Fr. Andreu confirmed this during my interview with him in Valladolid. In this moment, I was situated behind the girl who was still and speaking in a very low voice to the Virgin with the crucifix in her right hand. She said: “Jacinta is very sad because she hasn’t seen you since the 18th—she sees you so little—only a little—it makes the days very long even though they are not—at least make the days shorter.”

I asked for confirmation with fervor, thinking of the tranquility that it would give me—and in that moment, without turning, she reached her right arm backwards, turning her hand which held the crucifix and put it exactly to my mouth so I could kiss it. After, in the natural posture, she continued giving the crucifix to kiss. Then she fell on her knees two or three times, falling suddenly. She went downstairs backwards with her head lifted upwards. She reached the kitchen and sat on the bench, in the same position as when she’d begun the ecstasy. She blessed herself and returned to the normal state, and asked: “Who has brought me here?”—She told us later that the Virgin had told her she would return to visit her at four the same morning.

Fr. Ramon Andreu's Notes: Part Three, Post 62

The Pines

Notes about the happenings in San Sebastián de Garabandal on January 27, 1962

Notes taken directly by the Marquis of Santa María for Fr. Ramón’s information
Various Notes:

Sentence: While she was in the normal state, we spoke with Mari Loli: “When I speak with Fr. Luís (who is dead) I laugh as though he were in the house—and when I ask him where he saw the Virgin—in the pine with the branch in the middle.”

Couplets: invented by the girls.
“Men, women, and children,
You already know our message,
The Virgin wants us to fulfill it,
For the good of our homes,
Christians, follow the Virgin,
With humility and fervor,
Pray that she makes a place for us,
In her celestial mansion.”

The Warning, Fact or Mercy ? – garabandalnews.overblog.com.

The Warning, Fact or Mercy ?

The Warning, Fact or Mercy ?

The Warning Description
I am not able to say what it consists of but I am able to say what it will be like, more or less. It is a phenomenon which will be seen and felt in all the world and everywhere; I have always given as an example that of two stars that collide. This phenomenon will not cause physical damage, but it will horrify us because at that very moment we will see our souls and the harm we have done. It will be as though we were in agony but we will not die by its effects but perhaps we will die of fright or shock to see ourselves. And it is a sort of a catastrophe. It will make us think of the dead, that is, we would prefer to be dead than to experience the Warning. The Warning is something supernatural and will not be explained by science. It will be seen and felt. The most important thing about that day is that everyone in the whole world will see a sign, a grace, or a punishment within themselves and at the same time. it will be very impressive and terrible. No one will have doubts of it being from God, and of its not being human. I, who know what it is, am very much afraid of that day. the event of the Warning begins with the letter “A. “, like two stars… that crash and make a lot of noise and a lot of light but they don’t fall.
My Comment : A Phenomenon seen and felt in all the world at the same time, like 2 stars that collide, it’s a sort of Catastrophe and will make us think of the Death, we would even prefer to be dead, something supernatural and not explained by science, the World will see a sign, no one will have doubts of it being from God, it will horrify us and it will be as though we were in agony but we will not die, the event begins with the Letter “A” (in Spanish).
The Warning Time
You have said that you know the year of the Warning that the Warning and the Miracle are within the same year. Everything will stand still, even planes in the sky. It would look like the communists would have taken over the whole world and it would be very hard to practice the religion, for priests to say Mass or for people to open the doors of the churches. it would seem as though the Church had disappeared, Whoever practices his religion will have to go into hiding. what it looked like to me was that the Pope couldn’t be in Rome either, you know what I mean, out in the open. He was being persecuted, too, and had to hide just like everybody else.
It was an invasion, well, something that was a great evil in which communism played a great part, but I no longer remember which countries or what region was stricken. These difficult events will take place before the Warning because the Warning itself will take place when the situation will be at its worst.
My comment : Loli Knew the Year of the Warning as within the same year of the Miracle, it would be very hard to practice his religion, for priests to say Mass and for people to open the doors of the Churches, it would seem as Church had disappeared, we will have to go into hiding, the Pope couldn’t be in Rome either, he will be persecuted too and will hide like everybody else due to an invasion in which communism played a great part and will take place before the warning when the situation will be at its worst.
What the Seers said to us and clearly, the time close to the Warning will be difficult if not terrible, no fear to have here if we are living the Garabandal messages but fortunately very close to the Great Miracle then in my opinion it should be even more difficult after the warning and until the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of our Lady announced in Fatima, from that time only, the time of Mercy from God should begin, the travel to Garabandal could be difficult and it could be also one of the reasons why only few people will be able to see the Great Miracle, mainly due to a war or invasion in which communism played a great part (China and Russia surely), it will not be possible to open the doors of any churches safely, for priests to say any Mass and for the Holy Father to be out in the open as confirmed by the seers, he will have to hide himself and to go out of Rome because of this situation, that’s the clear picture of the world close to the Warning, there is no place in this description of a possible day of Mercy that day but the Warning could change History.
To my Knowledge and regarding our Church, during the pontificate of the 5th Pope and after a schism, in fact the Church will be in the same situation as the World, up and down, that will be the picture of the Church before the warning, the Prophecy of the Popes then the end of times has also a meaning, a kind of timetable if you prefer, the main prophecy regarding Garabandal but why? Well, our Lady would never gave a number of Popes without reason, when Heaven talk to us, we should listen more often and read between the lines, in fact our Lady has said everything already, it’s also why the seers keep telling us all is in the Books.
So to be clear, the events to follow before the warning:
1. The 1st Pope of the end of times, in my opinion the current one
2. Communist invasion, surely lead by Russia and China
3. Schism in the Catholic Church
4. A Travel for the first time in the history of the Catholic Church of a Pope to Moscow for 3 Possible reasons :
Invitation: quite impossible
In emergency for Geopolitical reasons: Possible
By force and imprisoned: Possible
If I had to choose, I’ll choose the last one but it was not always my opinion.
Anyway, there is a high probability today to live the Garabandal Prophecies within 3 years as I said it already on this blog, so nothing really new here for you my dear readers about a possible time. To finish this article the more important, a Reminder of the Garabandal Messages :
October 18, 1961
We must make many sacrifices, perform much penance, and visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently. But first, we must lead good lives. If we do not, a chastisement will befall us. The cup is already filling up, and if we do not change, a very great chastisement will come upon us.
June 18, 1965
As my message of October 18th has not been complied with and has not been made known to the world, I am advising you that this is the last one. Before, the cup was filling up. Now it is flowing over. Many cardinals, many bishops, and many priests are on the road to perdition and are taking many souls with them. Less and less importance is being given to the Eucharist. You should turn the wrath of God away from yourselves by your efforts. If you ask His forgiveness with sincere hearts, He will pardon you. I, your mother, through the intercession of Saint Michael the archangel, ask you to amend your lives. You are now receiving the last warnings. I love you very much and do not want your condemnation. Pray to us with sincerity and we will grant your requests. You should make more sacrifices. Think about the passion of Jesus.

Fr. Ramón's Foot

Reprinted with permission from GARABANDAL JOURNAL September-October 2003
Excerpted from 
She Went in Haste to the Mountain, St. Joseph Publications.

    Two days after the feast of Our Lady of the Pillar, there appeared in Garabandal for the first time a German engineer who was residing in Spain at Madrid, Maximo Foerschler Entenmann. Although Protestant, he was a close friend of the Andreu family; because of this he went to Garabandal accompanied by Father Ramón Maria.
    The journey was not easy. It was the fourteenth, the second Saturday of October, the octave of that special feast day of the rosary that had taken place in Garabandal. Let us listen to what he says:

    Some 20 kilometers before Cosio we had a tremendous collision with another car on a mountain pass. The accident could have had fatal consequences. Only later did I come to understand that it was without doubt the Blessed Virgin who had saved us from certain death. Because of what had happened we arrived at San Sebastian de Garabandal very late, after eleven at night. We had barely arrived when we had the good fortune of being able to witness two ecstasies. I admit that at the time they didn't impress me in the least. We retired to the house where we had lodging (all the village houses were open to Father Ramon Maria Andreu). Following this, at twelve o'clock, Father began to feel very bad. He was nauseous and broke out into a cold sweat, with a terribly painful left ankle which appeared quite swollen.

    I notified two doctors who were in the village: one from Santander and the other a bone specialist from Burgos. After an examination they made a diagnosis: besides the obvious swelling, there was probably a fracture of the ankle, at least a hairline crack. They applied a thorough dressing and an ice pack that they were able to get from theindiano, who had a refrigerator, and with several others carried him to the bed; he was in great pain. As an old friend of the Father, I stayed in a second bed they had set up in his room so I could look after him at night.

    After a long time — it had to be 3:30 in the morning — we heard a noise in the street and people shouting that the owner of the house should open the door since Jacinta was there in ecstasy wanting to come in. Shortly afterwards she appeared in the room, went toward Father and gave him the crucifix to kiss. Following this she said something to him that I couldn't hear. The girl was starting to make expressions and gestures of farewell to the Vision when suddenly she stopped. She leaned backwards toward where I was and held out the crucifix for me to kiss — two times.
    It seems that took away Maximo's indifference.

    When the girl left, we naturally began to discuss all the details, and Father told me that he had actually made a mental request that the girl, before leaving, would also give me the crucifix to kiss. I thought about this for the rest of the night.
    Father Ramon gives a more detailed and vivid description of this. A short time after having kissed the crucifix that Jacinta had offered him, he saw that she was beginning to make the sign of the cross and to hold out her cheeks for the invisible kisses, the unmistakable sign that the ecstasy was about to end. Then he quickly made a mental request of the Virgin: that the girl would also give the crucifix to Maximo. (Hours before, the good man had followed the visionaries in their trances without receiving the least bit of attention from them, but rather the opposite, since several times they had given the crucifix to the other onlookers while they had always passed him by.)
    Father Ramon had hardly made the secret request when Jacinta stopped and exclaimed, "What?" She remained in an attitude of listening and added, "Oh!" She began to lean farther and farther backwards, until she was able to place the crucifix to the lips of Mr. Foerschler, whom she could not see, since he was behind her. Seconds later, the girl returned to normal. It was four o'clock Sunday morning, October 15, time to get some sleep!
    Light was beginning to dawn on the morning of that day when several French people, followed by one of the two doctors, stopped by to see how Father Ramón was doing. It was about eight o'clock. Father told the doctor that all the pain was gone and that he was able to move his foot without difficulty. The doctor was surprised; but as a precaution, he counseled him not to put any weight on the foot, and to wait for the coming of the ambulance that they had been able to summon from Casa Valdecilla in Santander. The injury had been serious and normally would take from fifteen to twenty days to heal.
    We have the following information about this from Father Andreu. The doctor found him sitting on the edge of the bed.
    "What are you doing, Father?"
    "As you can see, I'm trying to get up."

    "Don't do that! That's foolish. Let's see your ankle."
    The doctor got down on one knee to examine the ankle. Then raising his head toward Father Ramón, he looked at him in a peculiar way and said:
    "You're quite a joker! Show me the bad ankle."
    The priest showed him the other ankle, which was the good one. The doctor examined it very carefully. He compared it with the other and ended up raising his head again toward Father Ramón while saying with an expression hard to describe, "What strange things happen in this village!"
    Continuing now with Mr. Foerschler's description:

    When the doctors left, Father began to I put his shoes on, since he felt no pain. He went to stand on his foot and did it without difficulty. Then he decided to celebrate Mass in the village, declining to advise Father Valentin to come up to the village [from Cosio] as we had first agreed. He ordered the bells to be rung for Mass, and we set off to search for a cane. I accompanied him myself to the church. As I did not understand anything about the Mass, when he was beginning the celebration, I found a place near the last pew to carefully observe from there how he managed on his foot. During the entire ceremony he moved and knelt down and got up without difficulty.

    After the Mass, I gave him my observations, and he made various movements with his foot in front of me without the least trouble. Finally he confided to me what had happened. Jacinta had told him in ecstasy at 3:30 in the morning: "Father, the Virgin told me that you were ill, but she told me to tell you that you are cured." At the same time the pain disappeared.

Mother Teresa and Jacinta

Reprinted with kind permission from GARABANDAL JOURNAL November-December 2005
Excerpted from Los MILAGROS o FAVORES DE NUESTRA MADRE DE GARABANDAL by Maria Josefa Villa de Gallego

Translated from Spanish by Dr. Edward Serrano


Mother Teresa: Jacinta, how happy you must feel for all the graces that the Virgin has granted you.
Jacinta: You are right, but I don't know if I'll be able to correspond to all the favors received.
Mother Teresa: You are a chosen soul. Before I make an important decision, I always invoke the Sacred Heart of Jesus."
Commentary: This reference to the Sacred Heart of Jesus was made by Mother Teresa because she knew about Jacinta's impressive vision of the Sacred Heart.
* * *
    We'd been in the village several lovely days, and Jacinta, who spends the most time there [of all the visionaries], told us that when Mother Teresa of Calcutta was so deathly ill, she called Conchita Gonzalez at her home in [New York] asking her to call Jacinta [who lives in California] and ask her to come to the clinic where Mother was [in Mexico].

    Jacinta arranged the trip and entered the room where Mother Teresa was. Mother extended her arms to her and, holding Jacinta's hands, clasped them to her heart while she spoke to her, all the time looking her straight in the eyes. Several times she asked how could a person travel to Garabandal from Madrid and how long did it take.
    They were there a long time, then Mother suddenly said, "I'm better now," and then she told Jacinta that when she was so ill she saw a light out of which came an angel who pointed to her with his finger and said, "Teresa, get up and continue your mission." The doctor said she was delirious because she was so sick, but she returned to work with the same energy as before.

Fr. Ramon Andreu's Notes: Part Three, Post 61

Copy of the happenings in San Sebastián de Garabandal
on January 28, 1962 by Fr. Valentín

“At seven in the evening Mari Loli left her house in ecstasy, went to the Church, and when she was there she gave the vision medals and rosaries to kiss. From there she went to Conchita’s house and then went back toward the Church. After a little while, Conchita left her house in a state of ecstasy and met Mari Loli in the entrance of the Church; they talked a little among themselves. Conchita went toward the door of the Church and stayed there for a minute. Then Conchita returned and took Mari Loli by the arm and the two girls left together and sang the rosary throughout the village.

They went to Antonio and Matilda’s house. The two were eating, and Jacinta, who was in the natural state, said: “try,” and Conchita, who was in ecstasy, said: “What do you mean try? Are they eating in my house?” “No, they are eating in their house,” Jacinta, who was still in the natural state, responded.
