Garabandal: despite its enemies and false visionaries


No one is forced to believe in the apparitions of Our Lady, and in fact, Catholics who do not believe in apparitions may be a majority. For others, a sixth sense leads us to approach her apparitions and in some places we feel Our Mother in a special way.

Since the nineteenth century the manifestations of Our Lady have multiplied, and she will have her own reasons to do so. Garabandal is a Marian apparition that should be approved in the near future, and as the years pass, the number of its devotees increases. Although some people clinged to the past insist on considering these apparitions as condemned by the Church, the reality is that they have not been condemned and remain open for future considerations. And what is worse for all the enemies of Garabandal: there are more and more priests and bishops who believe that the Virgin appeared in this Spanish town. I myself went to Garabandal 25 years ago because a priest and a bishop told me that these apparitions were true. And I can confirm that to a recent inquiry to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in relation to a matter about Garabandal the answer was “when higher instances consider it”, understanding perfectly that the question of Garabandal is not closed.

Those who read about the appearances of Garabandal and who speak with the eyewitnesses of those events, are surprised by the incredible supernatural manifestations that surrounded these apparitions. We can conclude that Garabandal is in many ways unique in the history of the Marian apparitions. From the medical point of view these phenomena were inexplicable, and from the point of view of mysticism they were well explained by witnesses of the reputation of the great theologians of the Pontifical University of Comillas as Royo Marín, Lucio Rodrigo or Father Nieto (in beatification process).

And because it is a real apparition and aimed at converting the whole world, all the false seers who open their websites every week with supposed messages of Our Lady say what was announced in Garabandal so that they are considered true seers. And having been abandoned and unprotected by the local Church, there will come to Garabandal all the false visionaries of the world trying to destroy this place. It is a maneuver of the cunning of the ancient serpent that confuses many …

Friend that you read these words, I make you a recommendation: when you have the chance of seeing the movie about Garabandal go and see it, and if you cannot, read one of the books on Garabandal (apart from the classics I recommend the thesis of Father Saavedra). And as soon as you can, go to Garabandal as a pilgrim, and enter the Church first and consecrate you and your family to the Virgin and the Lord, and do not forget to ask for protection from Saint Michael the Archangel (the angel of Garabandal). Then, wander where she moved for 5 years, that is, through the streets and houses of Garabandal, the alley (la calleja) and the pines (pray the rosary here and consider that you step on a sacred place). Without a doubt, you will leave Garabandal with the Blessed Mother inside your soul and you will be always and only of her; and since then you will live as a child in the house of Mary… Mother of God and your Mother.

But for this to happen you have to become truly a child, you have to learn in the school of spiritual childhood. The pride of the Scribes and the Pharisees of our generation does not allow them to see these things.

Those who have already visited other places of Marian apparitions will soon see that Garabandal is very different. Garabandal is a town in which there is nothing to see, other than the majestic nature of the foothills of the Peaks of Europe, its 100 inhabitants, the cows (and their emissions) and little else. There are also no large crowds of pilgrims, or seers talking to the public or imposing their hands, or anything at all. Depending on the time you go, the anonymous lady you have at Mass next to you might be one of the girls who saw the Virgin, someone like anyone in town. All this is further proof of the veracity of Garabandal.

For many of us, Garabandal is a piece of heaven on earth. Many foreigners have known this for more than 50 years, and now many Spaniards are also finding out Garabandal and begin to pray saying: “Holy Mary, Mother of God and Our Mother”…

  1. Barry–I have a question re the new film Garabandal:Only God Knows—my wife and I just saw it on Friday, 3/15/19–Question–why is there no mention at all of the fact that Conchita is to announce the Miracle 8 days before it occurs–this is the key fact upon which the Church will approve or not approve this as a legitimate credible miracle and apparition.

    • I agree that the eschatological side of the apparitions should’ve been described in the movie as well as the death of fr. Luis Andreu.
      Fr. Saavedra omitted the Warning, the Miracle and the Chastisement, although the latter is referred to in the messages. He has centered the film in making known the apparitions and the messages. It is clear that anyone who become interested in this story will find this side later. The warning, the miracle and the chastisement cannot be separated from the two messages.

  2. Dear Anonymous,
    Conchita often highlited, that Nobody will ever guess the Date of the Great Miracle. That`s a fact. All your dates and all the dates are speculative!
    We have to pray, especially the rosary, tha`s much better.
    Ave MARIA

    • Hi Jochen,
      Obviously, they are speculative. But they fit Our Lady’s requirements.
      Remember me in your Rosary. Likewise.
      God bless.

  3. Dear Elena,
    I understand your anger, but I believe we all should change perspective substantially, to suffer less and understand more.
    Bergoglio is not the pope, but a useful maroon placed there by the (ecclesial) masonry! It is a nonsense, and it is also very frustrating, to continue judging his actions and words as if he was the real successor of Saint Peter: this way we end up playing his game, even if in a conflicting way.
    Whoever follows Bergoglio (Bishops, Priests and common believers) belongs to the false church prophesised by many Saints and by Our Lady in several occasions. The militant Church is currently ‘in eclipse’ (as prophesied by Our Lady in La Salette). For the moment we still have an (hidden) pope: let’s thank God about this. Soon we will miss him too: let’s thank God for that either: all belongs to His Plan, in order to identify the elects (a distinctive minority!) and separate them from the rest of the flock. If Benedict XVI is still alive, it is because the number of the elects is not yet complete and ready to act.
    But we should bear in mind that the elects, whoever will be the apparent pope of the false church, will soon have a great mission, that may lead to their martyrdom: to maintain alive the faith during the dark reign of the antichrist who is here (for the peace of mind of Aviso, he is NOT Maytreia), in front of us, we know him well, even if he has not yet (fully) manifested himself as such (in fact, he cant as far as Benedict XVI, the current ‘Peter’, the Katekon , is still alive): “Tu es Petrus et super hanc petram aedificabo Ecclesiam meam, et portae inferi non praevalebunt adversus eam. Et tibi dabo claves regni caelorum.”
    But soon Benedeict XVI will die, and ‘Petrus’ will not be here anymore: the antichrist (who will deny that Jesus Christ is God and will ask to be adored himself will TEMPORARILY prevail).
    This is the time to meditate and actualise the words of Isaiah 10:20-22 (not the time to follow and comment the misleading blasphemies in thoughts, words and works omissions of Bergoglio):

    “In that day the remnant of Israel,
    the survivors of Jacob,
    will NO LONGER RELY on him
    who struck them down
    but will TRULY RELY on the Lord,
    the Holy One of Israel.
    A remnant will return,[a] a remnant of Jacob
    will return to the Mighty God.
    Though your people be like the sand by the sea, Israel,
    only a remnant will return.

    This used to be true for the ancient Israel, IT IS TRUE FOR THE CHURCH RIGHT NOW.

    God bless. I pray for you all.

    • Just something to add. I think the antichrist is born but still hiding…clearly he is not Bergoglio. BTW..the freemasonry that helped his election is slowly dumping him by letting leaking some information about his nebulous past in Argentina (see Der Spiegel recent article). The poor Bergoglio (I’m not bantering him!) looks more confused and older every day. Now, they are planning the final assault. Cochita was right, we had already the 3 final popes… Bergoglio is a puppet, he served evil forces, maybe without even knowing what he has really done. Be all be prepared for the final battle. It’s going to be long and dark. Let us pray St. Michael, next week is his feast.
      Glorious Archangel St. Michael, Prince of the heavenly host, be our defense in the terrible warfare which we carry on against principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, and spirits of evil.
      Come to the aid of man, whom God created immortal, made in His own image and likeness, and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of the devil. Fight this day the battle of the Lord, together with the holy angels, as already thou hast fought the leader of the proud angels, Lucifer, and his apostate host, who were powerless to resist Thee, nor was there place for them any longer in heaven. That cruel, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil or Satan, who seduces the whole world, was cast into the abyss with his angels.
      Behold, this primeval enemy and slayer of men has taken courage. Transformed into an angel of light, he wanders about with all the multitude of wicked spirits, invading the earth in order to blot out the name of God and of His Christ, to seize upon, slay and cast into eternal perdition souls destined for thecrown of eternal glory. This wicked dragon pours out, as a most impure flood, the venom of his malice on men; his depraved mind, corrupt heart, his spirit of lying, impiety, blasphemy, his pestilential breath of impurity and of every vice and iniquity. These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the Spouse of the Immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be scattered.
      Arise then, O invincible Prince, bring help against the attacks of the lost spirits to the people of God, and give them the victory. They venerate Thee as their protector and patron; in Thee Holy Church glories as her defense against the malicious power of hell; to Thee has God entrusted the souls of men to be established in heavenly beatitude. Oh, pray to the God of peace that He may put Satan under our feet, so far conquered that he may no longer be able to hold men in captivity and harm the Church. Offer our prayers in the sight of the Most High, so that they may quickly conciliate the mercies of the Lord; and beating down the dragon, the ancient serpent who is the devil and Satan, do Thou again make him captive in the abyss, that he may no longer seduce the nations. Amen

      • Thanks anonymous for reminding us praying Saint Michael! We should indeed, very often.
        Regarding the antichrist: what about if he is an apparently (for the time being!) disgraced politician we all know very well which, after the Third World (nuclear) War will take advantage of his past familiarity with the Powers that be to help (for free) negotiating and restoring an apparent (New) World Order? In exchange he could be nominated head of a potentiated and empowered (in order to maintain and enforce peace) United Nations organization that might even change its name…something like “Coalition of One”. He (the antichrist) might even be re-named “….. the Great”).
        In the meantime Bergoglio&Co will hail him as a sort of new ‘savior’ and, for the occasion, propose a new ‘humanitarian’ cult blaming the traditional religions for having induced us to fight each other till the nuclear destruction!
        Let’s start thinking about this…We won’t regret and will be more prepared to what has to come…
        God bless.

  4. I am very disappointed with Garabandel as Conchita is supposed to have said three more popes.
    This meant to me that the Warning would soon follow….
    Because both my son and l were looking forwards to be healed l have been saving every penny
    and still hope that it will come to pass.
    How could these children have made it up???
    I remember years ago when Conchita was being interviewed by some American journalist – her
    reply if none of these events were going to happen then all she could say that she was mad.
    This impressed me!!!
    Years later when l heard about Medjugorje they had an article about the Garabandal apparitions
    I became interested in Garabandal. If it will never pass at least I can honestly say that I became
    a better Christian. So this in itself has been a miracle. It gives sick people hope to go on,
    Yours sincerely Anne Frank

    • Dear Anne,
      Please continue to have faith! What Conchita said is perfectly consistent with the current situation.
      I quote from an authorative source (“Garabandal: Der Zeigefinger Gottes” by Albrecht Weber):

      “During the early part of June 1963, the bells of Garabandal started to ring. The following conversation then occurred between Garabandal visionary, Conchita, and her mother, Aniceta:

      Conchita: “The bells are tolling for the dead! It must be for the pope (Bl. John XXIII, 1958-1963). Now only three remain.”

      Aniceta: “What nonsense are you talking about?”

      Conchita: “It is not nonsense. The Virgin told me: After this pope there will only be three more.”

      Aniceta: “Then what? Will it be the end of the world?”

      Conchita: “The Virgin did not say the end of the world but the end of time.”

      “From the Holy Virgin. ‘Actually,’” she said,”‘there will be four more,’ but one she (Our Lady) doesn’t count.”

      Aniceta: “Why doesn’t she count one?”

      Conchita: “That she did not say; she only said that she doesn’t count one.

      She did say, however, that one will reign only a short time.”

      Aniceta: “And what comes then?”

      Conchita: “That she did not say.” After a shorter pause Conchita added: “The Holy Virgin told us several times that Jesus, her Son, will come back (in the Second Coming), but whether He comes then, I don’t know.”

      Aniceta: “Is that everything?”

      Conchita: “Yes. But she (Our Lady) also said: ‘The separated churches (or Christians) will be united again.’ There will then remain only one religion.”

      It is reasonably clear that Our Lady did not ‘count’ John Paul I because ‘he will reign only a shot time’, too short to steer the Church whatsoever and decide upon important matters, including the revelation to the World of the (true) Fatima ‘secret’.

      Moreover, it is every day more clear that Bergoglio is not a pope but a masonic usurper, while the legitimate third and thus last reigning pope remains Benedict XVI.

      Consequently, we have to wait a little more, at least until Ratzinger dies. From then on we should expect the fulfilment of Our Lady promises, even if we have to consider that the Church will remain for a while without a Pastor according to the Father’s will. Impossible to ascertain how long we will have to wait further, but we must be sure that on one of the following Saint Hermenegild’s feasts (13 April) all the person presents in Garabandal during the Miracle will be healed froma any serious illness.

      God bless. I pray for you!

    • Personally, my OPINION is that the Miracle will happen on 13 April 2028. This is mainly for two reasons:
      – it will be Holy Thursday, which will have a profound theological meaning, which is appropriate as the Miracle will be one of the most marvelous act of God since the Creation and it will serve also to stress the importance of the Holy Eucharist as the false and extravagant church initiated by Bergoglio&Co will have almost totally eliminated the Real Presence by the date of the Miracle,
      – The antichrist is commonly SUPPOSED to reign 7 years, the first half of which will serve to establish and consolidate his World leadership (after the III World nuclear War), make the covenant with Israel, the Vatican and the Arab world, rebuild the temple in Jerusalem etc… and the second half will see his deception to Israel and the others counterparts and his persecution of all the Elects, eminently but not only the true Catholics, who will not recognize himself as a deity.
      Thus we still have some time to continue converting ourselves, offer sacrifices and our daily sufferings to the Father and be faithful to the prayer of the Saint Rosary.
      God bless us all, in communion of prayers.

  5. Hi everybody. If S. Hermenegild is the saint of miracle, it falls on thursday in april, in 2023, and 2028, and in 2027 there will be the eighteenth ordinary synod. God bless you

    • 18 October 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, if we do not change, a very great chastisement will come upon us.” Says it all to me, so why the confusion?
      We have been told by the visionaries that conditions in the world prior to the Warning will be “bad…. at their worst”, so no surprises there either.
      Keep praying the rosary.


    • Hi, my dear all,
      In fact, not to speculate but merely to put the incoming Events in the right perspective, avoiding false expectations rather common over the net, 13 April 2023 and 13 April 2028 (h. 20:30) are indeed the most likely dates. The further one will be 13 April 2034 and then no more possibilities until 2045 (deinitely too late!: I would rescrict the options to the first too).
      I am aware that someone will be keen to object that St. Hermenegild (born in Toledo or Medina del Campo, 564 circa – d. in Tarragona on 13 aprile 585) is the Saint referred to by Conchita but, please consider that he, besides being the Saint Patron of Spain pefectly fit the description as it was marthyrized at an age of around 20 years (Conchita said a young marthyr, not a child as Saint Tarcisius was!) and he was in all respects a Marthyr of the Eucharist because he was murdered by order of his father because he refused to accept the ‘communion’ from an Arian (and thus heretic!) bishop (, wich would have also meant his reintegration to his royal rank, prestige and privileges.
      There is a specific reason why Our Lady picked up that date for the Miracle: Saint Hermengildus perfectly incarnate what we ALL will be SOON called to do: refuse to accept the ‘communion’ from apostate and heretic bishops and priests and thus go ‘underground’ and undergo either the marthyrdom and/or suffer severe losses anyway. I unsderstabd that this might sound rather odd right now, but please be patient and things will soon became more and more clear to anyone who is called by Our Lord to persevere until the very End (I hope all of us!)…
      So, at least, nearly 4,5 years (but, possibly, 9,5 years to go!). Thus, let’s breath profoundly and prepare ourself to endure a bit more…(only who endures till the end will be saved).
      And, also, please let’s consider that it will not be an easy path at all if it’s true (as Saint Pio from Petralcina explicitly stated) that multitudes of clergy and real believers will indeed be killed with the flowing of ‘oceans of blood’. Also because, in the meantime (after the death of Benedict XVI, the only true and legitimate living pontiff), the anticrist will rise to perform his horrific and ugly job…
      On this crucial matter I will possibly post something more detailed in the future, if and when the Lord will inspire me to do so. For the moment, I invite you to examine carefully the following contributions (which are, in a sense complemetary):

      Click to access Abbe_Augustin_LEMANN-Antechrist.pdf

      God bless you all. I continue praying for you…

      • Thank you for what you wrote on here. I believe what you are saying, to be true. God Bless you. I too continue to pray, for those who don’t see what’s ahead.

  6. In any case, Trump is meeting with Putin on July 16, the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. Perhaps this date is significant. We know that Russia is the chosen vessel to bring about the Reign of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and Russia is connected to Garabandal. “The pope will visit Russia”…. shortly before the Warning.

    • Publish it or not, as you like, Pete.
      Armagheddon is approaching, and so is the rising of the antichrist:
      The Chastisement will happen. It used to be conditional, in the ’60s: now, it’s too late.
      What will change is the itensity and the extension of the distruction determined by it, which still depends upon our prayers and sacrifices.
      God bless. I pray for you.

      • Dear Anonymous, all of this is pure conjecture and personal opinion, which you are of course entitled to share to spark discussion, but it is not fact or to be interpreted as such.

        God bless

  7. Very good statement Pepe!
    Please notice the prophecy about the Pope given by our Lady of Mt. Carmel!
    I`m convinced that Pope Benedict XVI is the last Pope in the endtimes. Now he is 91 years old.
    And you are right with your geopolitical comment. I would hichlight the planed cashless society (RFID), homo marriage, abortion, euthanasia and so on….
    We are in the end of the times!!!
    PAX Domini

    • Hi Jochen,

      The notion of a cashless society is very worrying to me. It is a precursor to the biblical Mark of the Beast where you cannot buy or sell (i.e.engage in everyday transactions) unless you have this Mark on your right hand or forehead (Revelation 13:16-17).

      Jesus Christ warns us that anyone who allows himself to be given this Mark on their right hand or forehead will be considered to be an enemy of God and will be destroyed, and their souls will be condemned to eternal punishment. God will show no mercy. God will accept no excuses. No extenuating circumstances will be accepted. Period!

      Thus, it is better to starve and die for Jesus Christ’s sake, than to accept the Mark of the Beast on your right hand or forehead.

      The one consolation is that if you are faithful to the end, Jesus Christ will save you. This may come in the form of being led to safety and to secret food reserves. Or more profoundly, if you die for Jesus Christ’s sake, then Jesus Christ will resurrect you and allow you to live again on Earth (The First Resurrection – Revelation 20:4-6).

      Be strong. Be vigilant, and be faithful to the very end.


    • Pete,
      You will see yourself, in due time, if there are mine opinions of facts that will fulfil (and if do not change your mind, it will be a very bad surpise for you!). In the meantime you are responsible, also and expecially in front of God, of the key information you are preventing people to know.
      I do not know what your agenda is but, believe me, it is not a good definitely one.
      I continue to pray for you, but you should refrain from resisting grace. Otherwise, mu prayers are useless for you.
      God bless you, anyway.

  8. Where does it say that the Warning and Miracle will be closely followed by the Chastisement in time? It is stated that the Miracle will be within 12 months of the Warning. I am not aware of any other prophecy regarding the timing of the Chastisement. Who is to say that there couldn’t be 20 years separating them? Why else would Conchita say that she wouldn’t be alive for the Chastisement?

    • Its essential to realize the Chastisement is conditional and dependent upon mankind’s response to the Warning and Miracle. In a BBC interview Conchita thought the Chastisement will come because the people have ‘lost their sense of sin’ thereby putting their souls in grave danger and warranting further punishment. While plausible and well reasoned, her observation is by no means definitive as there still remains an element of hope in it all. On another occasion when asked why the Holy Virgin appeared at Garabandal Conchita replied “ because She wants to save us”. That answer is intrinsically linked to the Virgins Messages for the world and its response to them. Indeed, the longer the time allowed before the fulfillment of the major prophecies the better the chance for people to amend their lives before time runs out. Pope John Paul II in his letter to Albrecht Weber, stressed the importance of those messages reaching the hearts of the faithful before ‘its too late’. In todays world there is a sense of giving more priority to the supernatural aspect at the expense of conversion of heart. The crucial point here is that we are on limited time with no guarantee of even surviving the Warning.
      Sadly, I continually meet people; including catholics who are totally unaware of Garabandal, or if they are; downplay its significance. That situation can only be addressed by all of us responding positively to the Virgins request to make Her Messages known together with an active prayer life.


    • You are entirely correct Claudia. Moreover remember the leaving of a permanent sign at the Pines, a sign for generations who follow the year of the Miracle, around which many will relate the events of Garabandal to those who were not born at the time of it’s occurance. No one knows when the Chastisement will unfold and also it is conditional. Conchita’s view that it will probably happen is her personnel view, not a consequence of private revelation

      God bless

  9. Dear Garabandalists,

    Please read it, the Blessed Mother promised these things for the future. It`s also written down in the Book of Albrecht Weber.
    I personally don`t speculate with the date of the Great Miracle. Probably the main events of Garabandal may happen the next year.
    For me it is also possible, that we have to wait for the next ten years (10 years is just a symbol period for me, because I don`t know the timetable of Garabandal)
    But remember the page of the book of Garabandal and it`s the statement of Conchita ( I would highlite, that I personally wish her a very long timelife, 100 years and more) but in 1998 she said to the author, that when the chataisment will happen, she will not be alive. Now she is 69 years old!
    Maybe, but there exists also the timetable with the Pope (Benedict XVI), he is more than 90 years old!
    2030 ??? I am not sure, but the statement of the Albrecht Webers book is correct!
    God bless you!

    Latest news at Garabandal. Three years ago Spanish government began widening the high way from Cossiyo to Garabandal village 4 miles and put street lights. We were wondering why this work all of a sudden. And last year Garabandal village Mayor has given a order to the 5 small hotels and 2 Apartment complex’s not to get bookings for the Great Miracle. Now this year Village Mayor has clean the surrounding area around the Nine pine trees and has put a fence around the Nine Pine trees as you know where the Great Miracle take place in the sky over these trees. Remember on these Pine trees where Our Blessed Mother always Appeared over 2000 times in 1961-65. Another event happen in many years ago due to lighting strike one pine tree died though these trees have seeds they die during the winter before the seeds mature. All of a sudden 3 years ago little pine tree began coming up from the ground. Something is going on here in Garabandal. This news has gone to the internet and Garabandal Journal and spreading like wild fire. Now remember year 2017 is going to be 100 years to the Fatima Apparitions that happen 1917. In 1978 when I went to Garabandal I stayed in Conchita’s (main seer at Garabandal) brother Serafin’s hotel. Serafin’s told me Great miracle will happen on a month of April and the word in the village is Eucharistic Martyr is St Hermangild. Holy Thursday will be on April the 13th in 2017. And on April 13th 2017 happen to be the feast of St Hermangild a Eucharistic Martyr (according to the Martyriology Calander before Vatican 11) St. Hermangild a French Saint beheaded in the prison because he refuse to receive Holy Communion from a Bishop not under the Pope. So in the DVD Conchita clearly say Great Miracle will happen on the feast day of a Eucharistic Martyr. And also Conchita has given a interview in 1965 to a German book writer and said before the Great Warning Holy Father will go to Russia(not in the DVD) but she did not say why. She said when he comes back the Great turmoil will take place in the world. If this dates are correct next year by this time we may hear from Vatican some news about the Holy Father’s visit to Russia. I am in contact with the village people by phone any further development I will let you know. In the mean time pray the Rosary for the whole world.

    • Absolutely Jacob. I had the quote from Weber translated by German women who now speaks English fluently:

      “Conchita also remarked that the ‘separation of minds’ will happen. In addition she said in 1998, that she herself is afraid of the warning. At the same time she also said that she will not live to see the punishment.”

      Conchita is 69 right now (70 in February 2019). The Social Security actuarial tables put her average age of death to be 87. That is in 2036. If Conchita has a natural death the Warning and Punishment definitely will highly likely be in the early to mid 2030’s.

      Her last picture shown on the internet in 2013 at 64 years of age shows her in good health with no obesity or extreme ageing. As far as I am concerned she will definitely live into her 80’s. But then again God can have other plans.

      • With the shift in geopolitical alliances being the way they are I think events can unfold very quickly. I would not bet for a late date for the Warning to occur or indeed, what about the Consecration of Russia?.

        What is unfolding before our eyes is an apparent shifting of alliances. At one end of the spectrum America is becoming enemies with the West and NATO members, and becoming friends with North Korea and now with Russia, with Trump wanting to have good relationship with Putin.

        At the other end of the spectrum both China and the NATO country members, (in particular the European Union & the UK) are forging closer relations with each other because of their anger against Trump America for the imposition of tariffs, and for making friendly overtures with Russia, The Western NATO countries are angry with this because Trump America is ignoring Russian interference in Western country elections and with Russian aggression against the Ukraine and other Eastern European Countries.

        Maybe it is a good thing for America to be friendly with Russia, but what will be the geopolitical consequences in the absence of the Consecration of Russia?

        I predict the NATO alliance will collapse. I also predict (as I said before) that without American protection (as America will be friends with Russia) Europe will be attacked by Russia with a Nuclear war and the European Continent will become devoid of life, it will be a radioactive wasteland. This is part of the hidden prophecy of Garabandal, as described by the seers, as the Warning will be at the cost of the lives of Europeans. There will be a great spilling of blood, oceans of European blood.

        This is also the prophecy of the Blind psychic Baba Vanga who foretold that ‘unstoppable’ Vladimir Putin will one day rule Earth and Europe will become a Nuclear wasteland. Baba Vanga is well regarded in Russia.

        I do not gamble, but if I were a betting man, the Warning will occur a lot lot sooner than 2036.


        • Hi Pepe, just to be clear, people will not die as a direct result of the Warning as you appear to suggest. Unless I am proved wrong, there is no hidden prophesy of Garabandal or any correlation between the Garabandal story and nuclear war with oceans of blood etc. What we are told, is that, in the seer’s opinion, some might die from shock, which was the answer given when asked if people will die as a result of the Warning. In addition we are told the Warning will happen when things are at their worst and it will be difficult to reach Garabandal on the day of the Miracle. This suggest one scenario such conflict occurring in Europe prior to the Warning. As for Baba Vanga, I can’t comment as I never heard of her.

          God bless

      • Hi Pete,

        I am not referring to the Warning as bringing these events. In my view these events happen either before or after the Warning.

        I want to make a slight correction and elucidation. The part of the “hidden prophecy” of Garabandal, is described by the seers while they were in Ecstasy, Conchita’s Aunt states that she heard them scream that Russia will invade Europe and wants to conquer the whole world. I have written about this in one of Aviso’s blogs and I gave web links to the documents.

        The correction I want to make is that the Miracle (not the Warning) will be the price paid at the cost of the lives of Europeans. There will be a great spilling of blood, oceans of European blood.

        I came across documents describing a very famous Russian speaking Soviet Union era individual called Baba Vanga who has a success rate of 85% for foretelling events in the future. This blind woman correctly predicted Brexit, 9/11, the rise of ISIS and the Boxing Day tsunami. Baba Vanga was so famous during the time of the Soviet Union that she was known as the ‘Nostradamus from the Balkans’.

        This same Baba Vanga foretold ‘unstoppable’ Vladimir Putin will one day rule Earth and Europe will become a Nuclear wasteland, devoid of life. In the former Soviet Union countries Baba Vanga is still famous there, and I can only assume that Vladimir Putin is aware of Baba Vanga’s predictions and her success rate, and is perhaps aware of his own destiny..

        For the purpose of clarity to the readers I have built upon Conchita’s Aunt’s comments and added Baba Vanga’s predictions as they both talk about Russia becoming master of the World.

        I believe in the information of the Ecstasy screams of the seers of Garabandal, but not necessarily Baba Manga. So maybe the European continent may avoid becoming a Nuclear wasteland…


      • Hi Pepe, about your quote : I want to make a slight correction and elucidation. The part of the “hidden prophecy” of Garabandal, is described by the seers while they were in Ecstasy, Conchita’s Aunt states that she heard them scream that Russia will invade Europe and wants to conquer the whole world.

        Please resend any link confirming your quote and the name of Conchita’s Aunt, thank you.

      • Dear Aviso,

        I am happy to oblige. I had to search your blog for the information. I found it. The comments are from “Mari Cruz comments about the apparitions for the first time in more than 50 years”.

        I can confirm that the events I described are supposed to happen BEFORE the Warning:

        1. the greatest trauma of this Tribulation will be felt in Europe. St. Padre Pio is reported to have said that the great Miracle to occur at Garabandal will be paid for by the blood of the Europeans—oceans of blood. Our Lady told Conchita that Communism will “come back” …

        2. Conchita’s Aunt Antonia testified that she heard the girls say, while in ecstacy, that “if we don’t amend our ways, Russia will take possession of the whole world…

        Here is the website I got the information about what the Garabandal seers said:

        This is the summary:

        The Great Tribulation of Communism: During the first of the “nights of the screams” the young girls (then ages 12 and 13) were shown the “sudden and unexpected” Tribulation of Communism led by Russia that will have an effect on the whole world, and which will happen before the Divine Warning to the entire human race. No one expects this because the world has been lulled into the false belief that Communism has died with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

        …It seems that the greatest trauma of this Tribulation will be felt in Europe. St. Padre Pio is reported to have said that the great Miracle to occur at Garabandal will be paid for by the blood of the Europeans—oceans of blood. Our Lady told Conchita that Communism will “come back” and that it will also come to Spain, but Spain would not suffer as intensely as the rest of Europe apparently because it had suffered Communism in the 1930’s…;

        …Conchita’s Aunt Antonia testified that she heard the girls say, while in ecstacy, that “if we don’t amend our ways, Russia will take possession of the whole world. Our Lady told the girls that during the time of this Tribulation the Church would seem to disappear, the Sacraments would be difficult to receive and the Priests would have to go into hiding. [Apparently many Priests will be killed.] When things are so bad that all hope seems lost, then God will send the Warning to all mankind. The Great Miracle will follow within 12 months, and there will be conversions of many nations, including Russia…

        Aviso, this is the basis of some of my information.


      • Thank you for your link Pepe, I cannot confirm anything of this article from Thomas Fahy and I already (strangely) replied to these false rumors as below and on another forum :

        (16 June 2018)

        Hi Aviso. Hope you are well. Perhaps Glenn can shed further light/facts re this.
        The quote does say “Conchita’s Aunt Antonia” heard the visionaries say Our Blessed Mother said this not any relative of Mari Loli.

        Prayers regardless for you and all in these confusing/worse times to come leading up to the Warning. Peace!

        John, First, Albrecht Weber is dead, so he can’t “confirms” ,so maybe he meant “confirmed”??? Secondly There is NO ONE who had greater access to the facts and Conchita than Barry Hanratty who was the Editor for Joey’s magazine, and now has his own Garabandal Journal magazine. ( BTW, I am still in contact with Barry ).Barry wrote ” during the time right after the apparitions”, not 50 years later relying on 2nd, or 3rd party stories. Don’t you think Conchita or Mari loli would have contacted Joey or Barry if they disagreed with what he wrote ??
        Now,as the articles states, IT WAS CONCHITA’S AUNT, NOT A LOLI RELATIVE WHO SAID THIS ! “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.” So even if Loli’s relative’s can’t confirm this, it doesn’t matter, it was Conchita’s Aunt.

        Now, I am friends with Thomas Fahy who wrote the book ” Suddenly & Unexpectedly “.
        Tom Fahy confirmed to me on Sept. 15, 2017 , that when he interviewed Albrecht Weber in 2006 for research for his book “Suddenly and Unexpectedly”, Albrecht told him that when the Pope returns from Moscow there would be a revolution at the VATICAN”, involving Northern Spain,Italy & France, from the advance of ” Communism “.

        The difference here is I get ALL my FACTS from either Conchita, Barry, (Joey when he was alive for over 20 years together) , or I go to the author of the quote, not a distant relative. Let’s not forget he also ” confirmed” through a seer’s relative that the Warning & Miracle were supposed to happen in May of 2017. Believe who ever you want, I could care less, but there’s only one person on the Internet who can visit ,call, or email Conchita ( as a friend ) daily . God bless.

        Glenn, Today at 2:23 AM

        Aviso : With all due Respect, I think The “he” (de facto myself) has a right also of reply especially when his sources are questioned in public by Probably as we know, one of our Greatest Garabandalist around this Planet (and I am serious), our good Friend Glenn Hudson :

        First Barry Hanratty who is by the way a good Garabandalist and this is not the question, has also made in the past many mistakes of interpretation and the most well-known is to me probably the one below and still online :

        One More Revelation
        “There is one other revelation made at Garabandal about the papacy. Our Lady told Conchita that the Pope “will see the Miracle from wherever he is.” Since John Paul II is the third Pope, he automatically becomes the one to whom this prophecy refers. And while we don’t know the date of the Miracle—Conchita, who does know, will reveal it eight days in advance—what we do know is that it will occur within John Paul’s lifetime. Taking into consideration his age and state of health, it would seem that it is not far off. May we prepare ourselves for this long-awaited supernatural event and the Aviso (Warning) that will precede it by living the Message”

        By Barry Hanratty, Reprinted with permission from Garabandal Journal, July-August 2002

        Aviso : Thanks God later and before the reality, Barry had the good idea and the responsibility to correct and update his misinterpretation during the Pontificate of Francis, as we know facts are facts, just below :

        By Barry Hanratty – Editor “Garabandal Journal”

        “With the resignation of Benedict XVI the papal prophecy from Garabandal again came under scrutiny. It states that after Pope John XXII there will be three more popes and then it will be the end of our times but not the end of the world. According to the prophecy then, the death of the third pope, John Paul II, signalled a line of demarcation, and we are now in and then phase that leads up to the great prophesied events and the end of our times. For many this is unconvincing since we now have had five popes with the election of Pope Francis”

        By the way and in the same article, Barry is quoting Father Laffineur, in other word the Pioneer of the Garabandal Cause, precisely Mrs Bocabeille (Bastiano’s Mother) was also close to Laffineur and worked for him as her secretary via Father Baillencourt who was the right hand of Father Laffineur with Father Combes, de facto we are always in good hands with all them, in other word Garabandalist my Friends, stay with us :

        “ But what about Benedict XVI, how does he fit in all this? If Conchita was told about all the above mentioned popes she must know about him as well but has declined to say anything publicly. Fr Eusebio Garcia de Pesquera, author of She Went In Haste to the Mountain, had in his possession for his book, a lengthy interview Fr Materne Laffineur conducted with Conchita in 1966, but he did not publish everything and said some of it was not for now. Perhaps it dealt with this subject »

        My Comment : Our Good Friend Glenn with is well known humour because as we know, he can contact Conchita daily according to him (unfortunately I cannot confirm as well), replied to our Good Friend John :

        “Don’t you think Conchita or Mari loli would have contacted Joey or Barry if they disagreed with what he wrote ??”

        Well apparently not, Barry had to change his interpretation some years later and before the facts only, in other words after the Death of Pope John Paul II and so on….
        Anyone can make mistakes, that’s not the problem but there is mistake and mistake, that one was terrible for the Garabandal Cause even more in my opinion that the Death of Joey Lomangino before the Miracle, here as well only a wrong interpretation of the Prophecies can explain it…etc….
        Between us, I don’t know also who is Conchita’s Aunt Antonia but will check, I know only Conchita’s Aunt Maximina, who still lives in the village and the Lady with me on my Avatar for years.

        Let’s go on with Thomas Fahy, the friend of Glenn as below :

        “Now, I am friends with Thomas Fahy who wrote the book ” Suddenly & Unexpectedly “.
        Tom Fahy confirmed to me on Sept. 15, 2017 , that when he interviewed Albrecht Weber in 2006 for research for his book “Suddenly and Unexpectedly”, Albrecht told him that when the Pope returns from Moscow there would be a revolution at the VATICAN”, involving Northern Spain,Italy & France, from the advance of ” Communism “.

        My Commnent : So who is Thomas Fahy ? to me this is not a Garabandalist but the President of what we call the Divine Will movement 😦, they have a center in Garabandal as elsewhere but they have no link with the Lady of the Carmel and they are mainly Promoting Luisa Picarretta cause and teachings but not the Garabandal Cause, by the way there is an official Center of Garabandal, led by my some good Friends including Bastiano and many others, this is the only and official Center of the Lady of the Carmel in the village with the blessing of the current Priest so de facto of the Church, please let me suggest you the last article of my good Friend Juan from Garabandal just below and about this matter :

        So I will finish my right of Reply with this quote again from our good Friend Glenn :

        “John, First, Albrecht Weber is dead, so he can’t “confirms” ,so maybe he meant “confirmed”???”

        My Comment : First I enjoyed the detail about my English, thank you again but I said it 1000 times online, I was myself in contact with Albrecht especially before his death, Albrecht was a reader of my blog and sent to me his famous book in German “the Finger of God” few time before his death, I wrote an article about it few months ago via my blog, anyone can check, so in no way there is in his book the quote about a Pope going in Russia then back in Rome the Tribulations, of course to get this detail you must read the book then get a confirmation or not of the Author, in other word you must work and check and recheck if necessary because we are promoting probably one of the most beautiful story of the Lady on earth and responsibilities of any promoter are great, copying some news from books or online for years why not but not to me, this has never been something responsible and sufficient, so let me conclude in the same way, The difference here is I get ALL my FACTS from Garabandal and from Garabandalist, Believe who ever you want, I could care less, thank you.

        PS : My Friends Garabandal contines Fatima and Akita confirms Garabandal, the rest has no link with the Lady of the Carmel, simple as that.

        My Comment : The “I am serious” about Glenn Hudson was of course a joke only.


      • Dear Aviso,

        Thank you for sharing your historical dealings. To be frank, I am only interested in tbe Garabandal seers and what they revealed in ecstacy.

        Did I understand correctly, that you believe that Conchita’s Aunt Antonia does not exist or does exist, but is a liar?

        I was not aware that there is politics going on even among Garabandalists. I am am an amateur Biblical scholar so my strengths are there.

        I believe that you do have access to Conchita. This matter can be settled quickly. Can you please ask Conchita if she has an aunt called Antonia?


      • Regarding the question about the so called Aunt of Conchita called Antonia, as I said I know the other Aunt of the Seer Maximina only but after checking with some of my good friends in Garabandal, I can confirm now that Antonia was indeed one of the Aunt of Conchita (the Good Lady went to God years ago) but unfortunately none of my good contact have been able to confirm her quote about Russia, thank you.

  10. Dear Garabandalists,
    First off all thanks Aviso for this clear statement. I agree to 100%, that there is only a link between Fatima and Akita, not Medjogorije ! I`m convinced that Pope BenedictXVI is the last Pope in the end times. So we can imagine that we are closed to the great events of Garabandal! 2030, I would say it is not realistic!

    • I confirm Jochen and I thank you for your comment, please let me confirm also that there is a timing within the Fatima 3rd Secret itself, in other words, Garabandal Continues Fatima as Akita ends Fatima, nothing else is related to these 3 Marian Apparitions, simple as that.

      • hi Aviso, only a thing. I said that the next synod is the fifteenth not the eighteenth, but the eighteenth is in 2027. this because in the past, it said something about the 18 number. God bless

      • Hi Aviso. And if 101 tears of Our Lady of Akita started since 1929? Popes knew about russia’s consacration since that year not before. I’ d like undestand. Thanks.

      • Aviso, I am very interested as to your opinion on “The Lady of All Nations” visions etc. as I have just read that the weeping statue of Akita was actually a copy of a “Lady of All Nations” one. I did not know this previously, and yet on reading up on these visions they seem to be very favourable to “one church” and the modernism of VII. What do you think?

      • Dear Concerned, regarding your question about our Lady of all Nations, any apparitions praising the last council VII or using a modernist language cannot be from our Lady, Queen of Heaven and Mother of God, so to me the Lady of all Nations to avoid at all cost.

      • Aviso, thank you for replying to me, “Concerned.” That is exactly what I think. It was just that I was a bit shocked that the statue in Akita was one of Our Lady of this type. Maybe this is the only statue of Our Blessed Mother that was in the Convent Church. God Bless you.

    • I take exception to this statement that Garabandal will not be in 2030 or 2030s. It can be. I just got the German translated from a quote in “Garabandal: The Finger of God” by a German born woman who speaks English fluently. It states that Conchita will be dead before the Punishment but will be here for the Warning/Miracle. She is 69 right now (Average age of death for woman in the U.S. who reaches 69 is 86). In 2030 she will be 81. So the Garabandal events CAN occur in the 2030’s. So don’t be so certain that it is in 2019 or the 2020’s. Actually the Virgin Mary through a visionary in Brazil supposedly is stating over and over today that we have many long years to go before the triumph of the Immaculate Heart.

      • To be exact, Our Mother said to Pedro Regis (Anguera) “long years of hard tests” NOT “many years…” whatsoever…Also because ‘many years’ for Our Lady might mean centuries if not millennia…

  11. This a very true article. We must live like children, live very good, have memories that forget the wrongdoings, anxieties, and become easy friends with everyone. The loss of souls is no joke. We understand our own time and suffering (because we are selfish) but we can’t never ever fathom the truth of eternity until the next life. Pray for and the salvation of sinners and everyone daily!

  12. A timely post and accurate assessment of Garabandal by a well informed author.
    Interestingly as I recall, Conchita pointed out that it’s not necessary to believe in the supernatural aspect of the events provided we accept and live the Holy Virgins Messages. Those messages were given ecclesiastical approval in 1965 by the then Bishop of Santander; Eugene Aldzabal in a nota issued by him on July 8 of the same year in which he declared:
    “We would like to say, however, that we have found no grounds for an ecclesiastical condemnation, either in the doctrine or in the spiritual recommendations that have been divulged in the events and addressed to the Christian faithful; furthermore, these recommendations contain exhortations to prayer, sacrifice, devotion to the Holy Eucharist, and devotion to the Blessed Virgin under traditional praiseworthy forms; these are also exhortations to a holy fear of the Lord, offended by our sins…”
    We should confidently expect approval of the apparitions by the Church following fulfillment of the major prophecies.
    The enormity of what took place in that tiny mountain village is yet to be fully realized.

  13. The Devil will THROW a spanner in the areas where the VISIONS appear…Padre Pio a Saint trusts the appearance of The Virgin Mary and that ALONE should SUFFICE for most Catholics unless you do NOT believe the words of St Pio…yes there will be instances where DOUBTS will creep up like a serpent that creeps up to Eve and DECEIVE her In The Presence of God.( what more we MERE mortals and sinners)..The Blind Joe never regained his sight and most of the SEERS has moved on in LIFE…BUT that does NOT Confirm that The Visions were FALSE or the Work of the devil…his work is to DECEIVE and NOT CONFIRM the Vision of the seers…they the seers being human will fall on the wayside like most do and DOUBTS will be planted in their MIND that what they EXPERIENCE is the work of the devil or otherwise…Pray to receive The Holy Spirit sent by Jesus to Comfort and Teach us in our spiritual life and The TRUTH will set you FREE!!!… The Virgin Mary is sent by her beloved Son of Man to warn the world and The WORLD has to turn to God Almighty to SAVE itself from all The EVIL of the devil and all his advocates and demons who roam freely until The Return of OUR LORD Jesus The Christ…Saviour of The World…Amen
