The Amazonian Synod opened on the 6th October 2019 and closed on the 27th of the same month. If you have been following the narrative of the Synod in full or even in part, you may, like many across the Catholic World, have also been left with a very deep sense of unease, even sadness.
Liberation Theology has certainly played its part, as also the move by German Bishops to establish a more decentralised Church Authority through what would become the chaos of a Church rebuilt on a foundation of Synodality. Also there was the topic of the ordination of women to the permanent diaconate (a slippery road toward a female priesthood), married priests and finally and most serious of all, the introduction of paganism in to the liturgy disguised as cultural inclusiveness, cultural dialogue and cultural environmentalism, alongside concerns for indigenous peoples, the wider topic of climate change and ‘sins against mother earth,’ and not least the bowing down to and prayers around the Pacamama Idol in the Vatican gardens (presided over by Pope Francis) and its placement in Vatican Churches and at Synod press conferences.
Add to this; the outrageous Vatican agreement with the Chinese Government in recognising its version of Catholicism and State appointed clergy; the widespread persecution of Chinese prelates and laypeople faithful to Rome; the Communist State’s recent destruction of Marian Shrines and now its more recently mandated destruction of some 40 churches (in which Catholics are barricading themselves in to as I hastily write this article); the arson of some 200 churches across France, not forgetting Notre-Dame Cathedral, fires at Coptic Churches in Greece and the spreading of vandalism effecting Churches across the west, it is perhaps no coincidence that Heaven has intervened and did so on the 6th of October 2019.
And that intervention?
An angel’s appearance and message to Sister Agnes Sasagawa, visionary of Akita.
Around 3.30 am on Sunday, October the 6th 2019, the same angel that appeared to me 30 years ago in Akita appeared. Firstly the angel gave to me a private message. After that the angel told me the message for everyone.
“Put on ashes and pray for a repentant rosary every day. You (Sr. Agnes) must become like a child and make sacrifices every day.”
I offer as a reminder, the below text taken from the message given to Sr. Agnes on the October 13, 1973 by Our Blessed Mother:
“My dear daughter, listen well to what I have to say to you. You will inform your superior.”
After a short silence:
“As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests.”
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres…churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.
“The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them”
“With courage, speak to your superior. He will know how to encourage each one of you to pray and to accomplish works of reparation.”
“It is Bishop Ito, who directs your community.”
And She smiled and then said:
“You have still something to ask? Today is the last time that I will speak to you in living voice. From now on you will obey the one sent to you and your superior.”
“Pray very much the prayers of the Rosary. I alone am able still to save you from the calamities which approach. Those who place their confidence in me will be saved.”

Update 1. 07/11/2019: WQPH’s Statement On the Recent Message to Sr. Agnes
It would appear I was but one among many that sought formal confirmation on the veracity of this recent event, which was requested directly to WQPH via private email. The response received was the release of an official statement published on their Web Site which, is summarised below
WQPH stands by its sources for the story “A new message from Sister Agnes of Our Lady of Akita. The editors confirm it was obtained ‘through sources close to her (Sr.Agnes)’ and has already resulted in ‘new tribulations for her and her confidants.’
WQPH further states it has ‘no reason to take on the risks associated with publishing a sensational story such as this new message from Sister Agnes Sasagawa, other than on behalf of sources, who are both reliable and courageous, and who have asked us directly to spread her message.’ and concludes, ‘until we can obtain more information from our source, we ask you, our brothers and sisters in Christ, to discern with faith and reason the veracity of the story, and we thank you for your prudence and devout concern for the integrity of the legacy of Our Lady of Akita and the reputation of her messengers.’
I encourage you to visit their web site for the full statement and a more recent English translation of the message.
My comment: Contributors to this blog, know only too well the importance of prudence when discerning the credibility of private revelation, its interpretation for our times and how it should be applied to our journey in faith, our listening and our responding to Heavenly calls.
There is no obligation to believe and this applies (to the best of my knowledge) even to ‘Approved Apparitions.’ It therefore remains up to each reader to chose a response. My view and for what it is worth; I sense the event and message to be true, not least because of the integrity of WQPH. The message asks nothing of me that is even subtly contrary to the Faith, is not in the least sensational or alarmist in nature and most telling of all is none specific even in the context of current/recent Church events (i.e. doesn’t point the finger and is non-judgmental in nature). The simplicity of the message’s imagery hides the depth of its meaning and its timing is right on point because clearly the Church is fast approaching a most critical and decisive moment in its history. Yes there have been a few, but none like this. Why do I say this? If for no other reason (and there are many we could list) it is simply because never since the beginnings of its foundation has Heaven intervened so publicly and warned so consistently with such increasing intensity as it has in these last 100 years or so.
I leave you with a question. How are we to respond to the phrase “Put on ashes” as in the context of Jonah’s prophesy? I was asked recently if it is meant to be taken literally.
God bless. Pete
Update 2. 10/11/2019. Recent Statement from WQPH:
‘We are back in contact with our source (thank you to all who offered prayers!) who promised to send a “more detailed message” soon. In the meantime, she encouraged us to watch the following video which we are not able to embed on this site, so we have linked it below…
Our source reiterated that Sister Agnes finds this video to be a good account of the message of Akita and its backstory. Sister Agnes speaks throughout the video.’
My comment: We await further news, I would encourage all readers to share links to this video and page on social media pages in order spread the message of Fatima and Akita. Also, please don’t be perturbed that Garabandal is not mentioned here, remember we still await Church approval.
On another note, I was wondering about the ‘Repentant Rosary’ and discovered it is a devotion approved by the Church. it was taught to Maria Concepcion Zuniga Lopez by Our Lord on December 26th 1970. Rather than me re-type it here, please go to the link provided below and book mark the page for your future reference. I hope you join with those who are now praying this Rosary as instructed by the Angel to Sr. Agnes.
God bless. Pete
Update 3. 11/11/2019 WQPH Received an Important Foot Note from Sr Agnes
Below is the English transcript from the original Japanese given to WQPH by its sources representing Sr. Agnes
“The other day, I just sent you a correction email regarding Sister Agnes Sasagawa. Let me write something important else.
On October 6th, after an angel appeared to Sister Agnes, Sr. Agnes said to Sister M. “I felt the time is near.”
I got a new permission of Sr. M via Mrs. S to write it.
This “I feel the time is near.” means the time of the message of Our Lady of Akita (Oct 13 1973) which, was given to Sr. Agnes. I think it will be easy to understand to write the message.”
Note from WQPH: ‘We will continue to work on obtaining more detailed information, and once again stand by the credibility of our source.’
Can anyone tell me what was meant by the angel when He said, “Put on ashes and pray”?
Do Penance & Pray in reparation for our sins! Read the story of Jonah in the Bible.
Thank you for your reply to my question.
The article at the link below is for this season’s culminating theme of repentance and redemption, taking in context the crisis now facing the world and the recent message from Akita, it opens with a comment from Father Heilman as follows:
“I’ve been doing very strict fasts since we got [the story of the new message]. I’m taking this very seriously, and we’re trying to do our best to call out to God as the people of Nineveh did, because, you know, it could be that our time is short and her message from 1973 might be more imminent.”
To Anonymous, I think the woman or female you are referring to is most likely Mother Mary and the miracles performed in April will bring Christians together and convert the unbelievers.
Have Mercy on us all God, oh scared blood of Jesus have mercy on the dying.
Time is close. Let us pray
You are right, Anonymous, there can be no other explanation if the book referred to, re the second seraph, contains any semblance of mystical truth.
Hello Pete, it was on Spirit daily the last few days, just type in ‘Sign above Vatican, after Pope Francis said there will be on Mass’ that should work. We have one case of the virus so far, one too many! The warning and miracle won’t be this year, but soon I reckon. Keep safe, God Bless
I’m just throwing this out there, but what if the Miracles was IN April, but not a month but a person’s name. Perhaps there were miracles so miraculous created in this person given the name of “April”
I am trying to think outside the box since it’s never cut and dry. Any thoughts?
Dear Anonymous, that thought is so far out the box it’s not even in this solar system never mind on the planet! Seriously though, you will remember Fr. Luis Andreu in 1961 was given a preview of the Miracle, and on his leaving Garabandal departed this world radiant with joy. Conchita knows what it is and the date, not the ‘who’ it is.
Dear all…completely useless saying what has happened in the last months in my life and those I love the most…I can tell you that this may not be the end of the world but clearly the end of times. I live in London…
…I am Italian…nothing will be the same …I lost many people…this is total caos…if you really believe just pray…seriously, this IS the end of the world as we knew it
May God and Our Lady console you, Elena and may the souls of all the faithfully departed rest in peace. Amen.
Dearest Elena, our prayers go out to you and yours, that God Our Father send you His Consoling Grace and grant you a holy courage. I pray that you and we all may endure this dark night in true abandonment to the providence of a Merciful Father, that we do so in patience and in secure hope until the Light dispels all doubt and all the works of Darkness.
You are entirely right my sister in Christ, nothing from this moment will be the same again. I too sense this is the beginning of the end of times as you say, a sense of a ‘critical hour’ in which many must decide. I am reminded of the similar concern raised by Sister Agnes to Sister M when after the recent visitation of the Angel she said to her ”I felt the time is near.”
I am afraid much is going to be asked of many of us, this is just the beginning, the tip of the iceberg as the saying goes, and most terribly we are without the Mass and access to our shepherds.
We must, as hard as it is, gather ourselves, set our faces like flint and have the attitude of one starting out on a very arduous journey, begun, not for the journey itself, but for the reward it offers. This journey is the only one, the only means by which you and me in these predestined times, can arrive at our reward. As St Paul encourages, run the race to the very end, to the finish line [and console yourselves for], we do so, not for a wreath that will wither and die, but for a prize that is everlasting, is eternal, is Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
God bless you
HI Pete, thx for the answer. I read a book 5 years ago on the second seraph. The Spirit led me to read this book. It was a boring long book in my opinion and so I put it back up on the shelf. The Spirit told me to open the book at about 3/4 from the back and start reading from there. How could I deny? At this point the book was becoming interesting. I read the entirety and found out that the person who wrote the book had the Spirit speak to her about a female who would come to show the world how to achieve the Christ consciousness. Many miracles would occur in the female to get people to listen.
Now I’m not saying this Warning and Miracle isnt going to happen the way Conchita said, but something I felt told me the book is accurate and theres a name mentioned in there as being April. When i read your post my mind went right to the book. So you might believe it far from the truth but I’m going to keep an open mind because I am rarily wrong when the Spirit talks to me.
Daniel, I agree with you, it must happen soon. This virus is only an example of probably is what to come. The world needs to bend their knees and put God first. We are in Lockdown here in New Zealand, where I live on the West Coast of the South Island is the one place where we do not have the virus (plus east coast of the North Island). The civil defence are closing our roads, probably from Arthur’s Pass and the other side from Fox Glacier, so we don’t have visitors in, to keep us safe. Did any of you see the picture of the sign in the sky from the Vatican when Pope Francis announced there will be no more Mass? It is like a huge grey eye (grey is the colour of penance) and the tiny sun which is the pupil! Amazing! Like the eye of God watching us! It reminded me of Garabandal when the girls saw the eye of God in the 1960’s!. Do you think God is happy with this Pope? Because when he was elected there was a huge lightning strike above the Vatican….. what was that meant to mean? Well everyone that message from Conchita was interesting recently….. she really can’t say too much, she is waiting too. Everyone keep well and God Bless.
Hi Barbara, I didn’t see the picture you refer to, can you source a copy and email to email@example.com?
Are we close? perhaps. We may indeed look back one day and reflect on this time as a chastisement and an Advent prior to the Warning and Miraculous events that are going to shake this world and its politics to the foundations and awaken in souls the very reality of God. I seem to remember reading in one of my Garabandal source materials some years ago about something one of the Seers said, but cant find it just yet, the best I can do for now is paraphrase as follows: ‘The Warning will make it apparent to all that God exists and consequently there will be little time left for people to convert, because there will then be no need of faith.’ Perhaps one of our readers has similar recollections?
Truly the time was near as Sister stated on 11/11/2019. We will be seeing Francis or Benedict fleeing Rome in the next few years. The Great Warning is near.
Thank you Pete, our priests certainly are special and greatly blessed…… you have put great thought in saying all of this, and is very true. You can see why the devil hates our priests so much, they are doing Gods work, which the devil hates. I still think deep down we may be closer to the Garabandal prophecies than we realise. What a year it has been so far! And we are only 3 months into 2020. Events seem to be happening so fast! We have 28 cases of the virus here in New Zealand, all from people travelling from overseas, 28 too many! I hope the Lord stops this soon. All we can do is pray. I love Saint Joseph dearly, it is his feast day here today, prayed to him and our dear Mother Mary, and of course the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Cheers for now.
Thank you Pete, beautifully put…..yes indeed we should not have our churches closed, just because of a human virus! But I do hope the Miracle is not too far away! I am planning to go to Garabandal with a group next year, 2021, on July 2, when Our Lady first appeared there, it was the feast of the Visition, back then. It seems very quiet on this website lately, I hope you are all well.
I hope Barbara you get to Garabandal, I do wonder if I should ever have an opportunity to do so myself. I for one have been relatively quiet on the Blog, not for wanting to be so, but simply because my duties at home and work have become very demanding during these last 24 months. Unfortunately I don’t see an end in sight just yet. Also I guess we are approaching (but not yet there), the Advent of happenings prophesied and I find my soul strangely quietened these days, perhaps because there is little more to be said about the facts of Garabandal that hasn’t already been said. Of course any news and reflections will be offered as they arise, and I do encourage readers to leave their thoughts for others to ponder, it can be very consoling for both writer and reader.
Remember this my friends, see everything before you with the eyes of faith, as if you see all from the heights’ of Heaven not the valleys of Earth and in so doing discern the purpose of everything seen and unseen as God intends it to be understood. Most especially these days, see in particular the True Light, invisible to the bodily eyes, that shines in the world because of the One True Church, The Mystical Body of Christ, His Bride, yes even you and me sinners we are, the Sacraments and the Light emitted by all Holy things, blessed water, relics and sacramentals, all blessed objects. A Light given that man might, (even unknowingly), be guided through the darkness and drawn, even tempted toward his redemption. See how wonderful are the blessed hands of the Priest. Did you know nothing can touch the Grace given them at Ordination, not even the Priest’s own sins, they remain always in perpetuity sacramental. They at the Consecration and in administering the Holy Sacraments bring only healing and life to the receptive soul, the product and free gift of God’s Redemptive Love, they do not bring disease and death the products of man’s disobedience and sin. If anyone tells you otherwise turn away from them. Know too, that there is invisible Light going out from you when in a state of Grace that illumines souls unseen in ways you’ll not know in this life. When you pray in the quiet of your hearts, in the home, at the dead of night, at work, when travelling you are become light, one with The Light, and your prayer is made effective by the bountiful generosity of a merciful God. For He our Father as you know, desires only the salvation of all, that not one be lost. So please hold tight to the Bark of Peter when in turbulent waters, when you’re weary, disheartened or in an arid place spiritually. It is then during your season of pruning that you in perseverance, are most like a spring of living water nourishing the vineyard in secret, hidden below ground so to speak, reaching the very roots of poor neglectful and sinful souls.
God bless you all, let us pray earnestly for one another.
Pete, if you look at M.O.G. site there is a message from Conchita yesterday (Thurs.).
Hi, Concerned. What is the message as I cant find it when visiting the site, although I’m not a member would that be why?
Concerned could you put the details of Conchita’s message from yesterday (feast of St Joseph) on this site or a link so we all, can access it?
I’m thinking a lot of us here will be keen for the details!
God Bless, Aviso
Yes, that’s it , Pete. Sorry, this is my first visit to this site today so I didn’t see your request. I notice Ann Barnhardt has picked up on it as well.
Were we all more introspective as to how we stood with God and asked Him to tell us what to do then we mightn’t be so SHOCKED when we see ourselves on the day of the Warning.
Prayers for yourself and all here.
Sorry, that should have been Bishop Gracida’s site at Abyssum Abyssum, not Barnhardt. ( Have been unusually busy all day!)
Thank you “Concerned” telling us of Conchita’s words to apply for the Coronavirus lockdown. And thank you Pete for giving us the link. What wonderful observations and advice Conchita gives. They are worth pondering and considering how to implement them.
They are repeated on another thread on M.O.G. website, simply entitled “A Message from Conchita (of Garabandal) Today”.
But I am concerned that we might easily misinterpret Conchita’s words by making them fit into our worldview, like we did with Our Lady’s words in Garabandal.
Examples are reply comments on M.O.G. saying:
“… It is simple and it is not extraordinary. That is how our faith is.”
Another referred to “… those comforting words”.
Those replies may be valid for the one in a million great saints. But for the rest of us it is the wrong response. To fully implement Conchita’s advice, so that we could hear God’s reply, would require us to make great changes.
To think in that way (imagining we have already reached that level of sanctity) is to be continue the same deceptive thinking which has infiltrated God’s Church for the last 60 years. In particular I am thinking of what Our Lady warned us in 1961-1965 (Spain) and in 1985 (Ireland). But it would be unfair to blame the priests for their bad teaching. Bear in mind that any priest ordained after 1930, has had his mind contaminated in the seminaries with secular humanist psychology replacing the previous teaching of truth. Thus they were taught to teach “affirmation” where they would previously have shown us our guilt. Awareness of our guilt is a wonderful thing, as without it, we will not truly repent. And without true repentance, we will not change and be forgiven.
So to get back to Conchita’s words above, if we implement her advice, we can examine our consciences going down through the ten deadly sins, starting with the first (and worst) which is Rebellion and going on to the second worst, which is Malice, and so on. In this way we can escape from the obsession with Self (which leads nowhere) and switch to serving and loving Our Lord, Jesus. We will fall again and again but in the process of repeated repentance and attempting to be good, we will achieve two things – first is save our souls and second is escape from the bad thinking which harms our lives.
Of course this is only dealing with part of Conchita’s advice above. Its worth going back and reading her words again.
Patrick re your comment regarding ordination of priests after 1930 I’d suggest that doesn’t apply to SSPX and Fraternity priests.
My experience in the last 12 months is those priests are all on the same page and are not contaminated by the influences of satan and his cohorts, since the latter have taken over the Vatican! .
Although SSPX & Fraternity priests are certainly aware of the realities and that they are particular targets for ‘the smoke of satan’! “Pray for me” is a common request from each of them!
I also find it interesting that criticism of Pope Francis by them is missing but NOT criticism of his heretical, encouragement to commit sin and anti-Catholic statements and actions. In itself, it seems to me, these are signs of ‘Truth’, that St Paul would espouse!
To me these priests are doing their best to maintain ‘Truth’, in spite of the corrupt cardinals and bishops!
Sermons by priests from both are not backward at all in warning of sin, temptation, hell, purgatory, the need for sanctifying grace, etc.
And dedication to Our Lady has been evident with all of them.
The congregations they serve and guide are also unique in their devotion to Our Lady!
I see Conchita’s comments on St Joseph’s Day as perfectly based.
And Pete’s comments here regarding priests are also on the money. Bad priests can still administer good effective sacraments!
Don’t overthink it and get your guardian angels involved in your every day events! Our Lady’s victory is guaranteed and we can help a lot by empowering the angels!
You are so right, Patrick, and the old missals will give us a much better framework to truly take quiet time apart, as Conchita recommends, and ponder our actions and attitudes. You are right that people of late have been brought up to excuse their actions and ‘guilt’ is seen as a very dirty word. Preparing for first confession I remember our class having a purple and a yellow square of paper each. The teacher would describe a scenario and we would hold up the ‘sin’ or ‘not a sin’ square!! Very crude but it brought home the message and it doesn’t preclude you understanding that there are nuances to any situation.
As Bishop Gracida reminds us, they are Conchita’s personal words to us, but I for one recognise advice which is simple and yet very profound. Her advice is very much en pointe and strikes a chord with me while lots of ‘messages’ from a proliferation of ‘seers’ today strike me as repetitious and bogus.
If we don’t recognise our sin and guilt how can we love and appreciate Jesus for taking all the burdens of that sin onto Himself?!
Servus – re your reply at 03/20/2020 at 22 h 15 min
I partly agree with all the points you made, but that raises serious issues:
First: “Don’t overthink it and get your guardian angels involved in your every day events!”
Is that advice in respect of my words? Or of Conchita’s words when she says “With sincerity we can ask God to tell us what He wants of us today, and continue to do that every day”. That implies the small voice answers her and she does as she is told. I believe it is so in Conchita’s case. I know it was so for two great and humble people I knew, but they both died some years ago.
Second: “Our Lady’s victory is guaranteed …”
Yes it is so. Indeed we are justified in having hope. The problem is our expectations for that victory are usually false. Our civilisation will NOT be saved. The downslide into communism and disasters (& possibly war) is accelerating, just as we deserve. When the bishops are woken from their sleep by shocking events, perhaps they may demand the consecration of Russia. When that is done, Our Lady has promised us a period of peace. But She did not tell us it would be a long period of peace. And She did not tell us it would be a good period of peace. The wonderful saintly Fr Nicholas Gruner imagined it as a long utopia. But on that issue, he was wrong. The period of peace will probably please the great majority. But it should be obvious to us, what the technocrats etc have ready for that period of peace. It will be monstrous, but fortunately it will be brief. The chastisement referred to in Garabandal and in Akita (1973) and in Melleray (1985) will sweep it away. Thus the survivors will be freed from the iron grip of “civilisation”. Hopefully they will then have 1000 years of decency when people can struggle to save their souls. Perhaps it may be as good as the approx 1000 years we had from 585AD (when the Visigoths brought good rule) and 1517AD (the start of the Endarkenment). And will foolish people in the future again try to bring the iron grip of “civilisation”?
Thirdly: On Priests – I largely agree with your comments, but it raises too many big issues to address here or now.
My “don’t overthink it”, was general for all not specific to you or Conchita.
I am heavily influenced through reading about Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich and Sr Mary Of Jesus Of Agreda’s life story of Our Lady from conception to her Assumption and coronation as Queen Of Heaven.
These great ladies have clarified the Scriptures for me, especially the gospels, St Paul’s writings & St John’s Revelations.
Our Lord constantly told Anne Catherine that she should accept that all she needed was His grace and she could handle anything that came her way.
St Paul said exactly the same thing in his preaching to the Christians as The early Catholic Church began!
And so my focus is now entirely on salvation of souls for Almighty God.
That’s why He became man and what His Love for us is all about, I believe.
So what happens in this life is not important unless that is the focus! For me anyway!
Critical to the Church Militant in it’s role in the War with Hell’s cohorts are our guardian angels I have come to understand.
Their power is amazing and we should use them more. Much more!!!
Hope that helps clarify my comments.
God bless in through & with Our Lady Of Mount Carmel.
Patrick, you seem to suggest that many of us are not graced with hearing the voice of God clearly. Is that not just what Conchita is saying, that this period of detachment offers an opportunity to withdraw and examine our consciences to “clean” them them SO that we CAN hear God’s words to us more clearly?
Thank you for that post Aviso.
As a relative newbie here your statement is appreciated and enlightening.
And I will be more careful re Conchita references in future whether here or elsewhere.
OK My friends, I asked Bastiano to call Conchita and he told me that she was not home and probably with her children, de facto and in doubt I am deleting the link in question and as I said to Peter, I do not want any link from this forum on our blog anymore but I have there still many friends and if they are reading me via my blog this little message for them : “My Brothers you are all in my Prayers, keep up the good job”, thank you.
Hi concerned. What is the message from Conchita. Just a couple of days ago I was in correspondence with Catholic author E. Michael Jones, who told me that in a phone conversation with Conchita in the mid-1990s, she denied ever having seen the Blessed Virgin. What do you make of this?
Emmet, Aviso does not want a link from this site – and his wishes are to be respected. It is his site.
In any case it was not a ‘message’, but a comment from Conchita herself in a personal capacity only.
I am sure you will be able to find it if you want.
As to E Michael Jones – I don’t know who he is and would doubt very much that he has Conchita’s phone no! This site is for those who find the messages of Garabandal worthy of belief and I don’t wish to enter into any correspondence to undermine that.
Wishing you God’s Blessings.
By the way, I found the article Mr. Jones wrote in 1993 and this is not what he reported Conchita as saying then. From my reading she was referring to the time all the children had doubts and were ‘encouraged’ to sign a retraction. As regards whether or not the events were supernatural and from Heaven Conchita stated in the ’93 interview that she implicitly had full confidence in the official Church to decide on all matters concerning this. Her humility and total obedience to the Church is in line with what Our Lady supposedly instructed the children. His interview with Conchita is in STARK contrast to an article in the same edition which he penned on medjugorje, vasula ryden and to some extent myrna of Damascus.
Conchita never seems to be about the fantastic side of Garabandal but about emphasising the actual REQUESTS of Our Lady as to how we live: prayer, Rosary, penance, fasting and Eucharistic Adoration.
As an aside, Mari Lolli’s daughter has written of her mother, who never spoke about these things, beginning to speak of them and remember the tremendous gift of Our Lady in letting her hold the Baby Jesus etc., shortly before she died. I think that says a lot. For the girls (women) to have to live by Faith like the rest of us was a tremendous gift to them from God. They can in Eternity be rewarded for their Faith, as well as Hope and Charity.
Thank you Concerned. Yes, the girls did go through a period of doubt during which they knew also their doubting was odd and incorrect because they still knew the visions were all the time real. It was a period of ‘confusion’ meant as a sign to all of the confusion occurring within the Church between Cardinals and Bishops etc. A state of affairs that prevails to this day and is much more obvious to the ordinary man in the street than it was in the 1950s and 60s
Is the Warning and Miracle about to take place soon, since we have Churches closing?
Morning Barbara. Who, knows when (except Conchita). Our Lady of Mount Carmel also added when speaking of the difficulties “the only consolation for you (at that time) will be the Holy Rosary and the Sign left by My Son.” So Our Mother speaks of difficulties both before and after the Great Miracle, but was never specific as to the causes, which may be very different in nature and many, many years apart. The Seers speak of the Warning occurring when “things are at their worst.” Its bad now, but given what we know and our parents and grandparents have witnessed during the last 120 years, I wouldn’t say things are quite at their worst just yet and a Warning needed right now “in keeping with the needs of the world.” We know that viruses have their seasons, so we know that at some point this year things will return to normal, but viruses also never really go away, we just get better at fighting them, so until we become more immune, this one will return and cause similar problems. So as I said, it may be one constituent part in the trial mankind must undergo.
I note the Greek Orthodox Church has issued a statement to the effect that the receiving of Holy Communion is not to be suspended for it cannot spread disease. Puts the Roman Catholic Church on notice do you not think?
The Ordained Ministers of the RCC regardless of their station and appointment must place their faith squarely on Our Lord, not the World Health Organisation, not on scientists and their ever changing models and algorithms. The Priest is Persona-en-Christi, the Sacred Host IS Christ! It is the Priests’ sworn duty to provide the Mass for the People, yes even under the threat of death, the Mass must go on and be available to all, its up to the ‘all’ to decide if they attend or not, a decision that will test their very own faith. Is it not a holy thing and witness of Divine Love if a Priest should ascend to his Lord having contracted a fatal illness when providing the Sacraments to the people of God than he dies worrying and fretting hidden away in his presbytery? Did Our Lord not say we cannot add one hour to our lives by worrying over what tomorrow brings, and that not one hair falls from our heads without Him knowing? So then, if this virus is the means by which some souls are called to judgment it is because it is at their appropriate time, if it’s my turn also, then may God be merciful to me a sinner for I place all my trust in Him.
Have courage, stay the course, be patient, pray and if you are able fast.
God Loves You and will call you and me when He decides.
Well said Pete.
Last night reading Vol II of Anne Catherine Emmerich and read this line: “We are blind, blind in everything. Science is but specific blindness.”
Struck me as describing the ‘brilliant’ science being thrust at all of us these days.
God is in control and has handed the reins to Our Lady.
Thanks be to God (& not mere mortals, whether scientists or not).
Quite right Servus, Anne Catherine Emmerich is a wonderful example, I have read both volumes and now enjoying her recounting the life of Christ and that of His Blessed Mother (Volume III).
I didn’t know there was a Vol III. Any chance you could advise it’s full title and where to get it!
Anne Catherine is amazing and although she won’t get any credit on this planet for this miracle, I can attest to the fact that without her, Sr Mary of Agreda and Our Lady of Mt Carmel, I would still be wandering in the wilderness of the world, as I was less than 12 months ago!!!
Just a little anecdote to prove the point – being honest about how things were for me I was away from The Church for over 40 years!
I used to be an altar boy pre Vatican II and the protestantisation of our beautiful Latin Mass.
The last time I served as an altar server at a Latin Mass was when I was 12, until recently!
Now who would have thought that I would again serve a Latin Mass 60 years later (within 12 months of being ‘found’ again), and, whats more, be okay with the Latin??? Wasn’t so good on the procedures though! Ha! Ha!
Yep! I didn’t know I would be back but Anne Catherine did as did Our Lady of Fatima and Our Lady of Mt Carmel!
And before I had even been back in the fold for 12 months! Tell me that’s not a miracle!
God bless everybody and if you want solace in these ridiculous times search out Anne Catherine. She is truly amazing!
The third volume is called:
‘The Lowly Life and Bitter Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Blessed Mother Together with The Mysteries of The Old Testament. (From the Visions of Venerable Anne Catherine Emmerich As Recorded in the Journal of Clement Brentano)’
Edited by Very Rev. C. E. Schmoger.
One of the longest titles for a book I have ever come across. I bought my copy from Amazon. The book is approaching 600 pages long and is a page by page photocopy of the original version. On some pages the words have been lost due to the poor condition of the original and some text difficult to read due to blurring, but its only in a relatively small number of cases. Its a wonderful read, brings the reader right in to the heart of the person of Jesus and his day to day life. It was for the purpose of this journal, its writing and promulgation that the Pilgrim (Clement Brentano) was lead by Holy Providence to Blessed Anne.
Why Blessed Anne is not yet St. Anne Catherine Emmerich is a mystery.
Thank you for sharing a little of your personnel story and journey home, an inspiration and testimony on not giving up, especially to those who pray for loved ones who have become lapsed.
More magic reading in front of me thanks to you.
The faithlessness of the bishops and priests calls to mind the words of Christ: “When the Son of Man comes, will He find any faith in the world”? Certainly not among most of the pastors, it seems.
Wow! That is incredible Daniel, perhaps that is the time frame! I hope so, we are not getting any younger! I am hoping to go to Garabandal next June, 2021, the last time I was there was 2017, it is an incredible place, peaceful and humble, I just love it there, it has a wonderful feeling about this special village.
The path of the total eclipse in 2017 went from Northwest to Southeast, from Oregon to South Carolina. It reached its point of greatest duration a few miles south of Carbondale, Illinois. Totality lasted for two minutes and thirty-eight seconds. In 2024 the eclipse will wend its way in the opposite direction, from the Northeast to the southwest on Monday, April 8, 2024. There is one point however which will mark the intersection between 2017’s eclipse and the one to come, the meeting of the two different paths across the United States, as if marking the center of a large X. It is precisely in the very same spot in Illinois where totality – the complete eclipse of the sun – will be repeated for the greatest length of time. That exact point where the 2017 and 2024 lines of totality cross is Cedar Lake in Jackson County, just south of Carbondale.
And here is the spooky part.
That geographic location has a name. It is called Little Egypt!
For us Garabandalists, April 11, 2024 is on a Thursday not in Lent or Holy Week. Conchita is 75. Things are lining up.
The eclipse of 2017 entered the USA in Oregon the 33rd state founded , it crossed over 7 towns named SALEM ( Jerusalem ) in short !!! Exited the USA off the coast of South Carolina on the 3rd parallel , too many coincidences to not be sugnificant in some way , it was in my opinion definitely a sing from GOD !!! PLEASE RETURN TO TRADITION BRING BACK THE TRUE MASS , THE LATIN
IWhen Conchita announces the date of the Miracle 8 days before it happens……. could this possibly be a Wednesday during Holy Week, the day before Holy Thursday? As it won’t be during Lent. Would it be possible, for us who are going to the Miracle of Garabandal to be travelling after Good Friday, because I feel it wouldn’t be right to travel during the Passion of Jesus, but after.his death….. but okay to travel on Easter Saturday and His great glory on Easter Sunday, As there are 8 days in Easter, is this what Conchita means about the 8 days? I live in New Zealand, so I am and many are along way from Garabandal! I am hoping to be in Garabandal next year, hopefully around about the 18th June. Aviso, how did your last trip go? Any news?
Wondering if the coronavirus is God’s response to the Pacamama Idol worship in the Vatican gardens. If it gets really bad like back 1918 then it probably is.
I would believe its more related to the communist China persecuting the underground faithful Catholic church. Also the organ harvesting as news of the internment camps of religious and political prisoners is being exposed.
Please God, not until after my trip to Madrid, Fatima, Garabandal, Lourdes, Paris in March!
Update: my Spain trip was cut short by three weeks because of COVID19. I pray I can someday visit Garabandal as planned. 😞
For the record, the comment in regard to Medjugorje was never intended to extend to confirmed Marian Apparitions. For example, Bishop John Shojiro Ito, acting in his official capacity as the Bishop of Niigata, Japan approved the apparitions of Akita. Akita also received the tacit approval of the then Prefect of the Sacred Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (later Pope Benedict XVI).
This writer has no problem with promoting: Quito, La Salette, Fatima, Tre Fontane and Akita as they all appear to be connected. They appear to complement one another regarding problems within the visible institution of the Catholic Church and future events with respect to “the end of the times” or “the last times of the world”.
The notion that Garabandal is “the fulfillment” is not reflected anywhere in the recorded testimony of the seers of Garabandal nor the Messages of Our Lady of Garabandal.
The line in the Message on the 18th of June 1965, “I am advising you that this is the last one” (which has been misinterpreted by some) must be understood in the proper context of the specific location of San Sebastián de Garabandal. Furthermore, the Message on the 18th of June 1965 goes on to say, “You are now receiving the last warnings.” The statement does not preclude the possibility of an additional warning or warnings elsewhere. The verbal phrase, “are now receiving”, is written in the Present Continuous Tense (also called Present Progressive Tense). This tense is used to show that an ongoing action is happening now, either at the moment of speech or now in a larger sense. It describes an activity that is currently in progress. The present continuous can also be used to show that an action is going to take place in the near future, eg the approved Marian Apparition of Akita.
Sincerely yours in the Passion of the Church,
May the Lord bless you and Our Lady protect you always,
Thank you John
“What appears to be connected” is not a rational basis for belief until final approval by the Church.
In the history of Marian apparitions what distinguishes Garabandal from the rest is that, it alone, by fulfillment of the major prophecies will demonstrate its own authenticity and thereby consequent approval by the Church – not the reverse as is usually the case.
It is disappointing these points were not included in your commentary.
Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinions and they must always be respected but I do hold strongly to the view that its more appropriate – and indeed safer, to promote other alleged apparitions separately for the reasons given in my previous communication.
In the Hearts of Jesus and Mary
Quite correct, “what appears to be connected” is not a rational basis for belief until final approval by the Church.
The point that I failed to make clear was that it is self-evident that the Messages of the approved Marian Apparitions of Our Lady of Good Success, Our Lady of La Salette, Our Lady of Fatima, The Virgin of Revelation and Our Lady of Akita bear a striking resemblance to the Messages of Our Lady of Garabandal. That fact ought to serve as a source of comfort and consolation to those who believe in Garabandal until final approval by the Church after the prophesied events. Additionally, there is complementarity between the approved apparitions and Garabandal which is encouraging. This writer has no problem promoting the aforementioned approved Marian Apparitions because they help to reinforce and strengthen support for Garabandal.
The criteria of judgement concerning apparitions and supposed revelations presented in the Church’s 1978 document by the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on the “NORMS REGARDING THE MANNER OF PROCEEDING IN THE DISCERNMENT OF PRESUMED APPARITIONS OR REVELATIONS”.
Thank you for your acknowledgement and clarification.
As we approach the climax of our salvation history there is no need for clarification or concern about the Holy Virgins Messages since they were given full ecclesiastical approval in a nota issued by His Excellency Bishop Eugene Aldzabel in 1965. The content of that document reads as follows: “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…” The following year, in what might be termed more than an extraordinary coincidence, Pope Paul VI abrogated Canon Law 1399. The major impediment to the spread of Our Lady’s Messages was thus removed — paving the way for them to be made known throughout the world. Pope John Paul II in a message to Albrecht Weber author of the book Garabandal-Der Zeigefinger Gottes endorsed their validity by encouraging the author with these words: “May God reward you for everything. Especially for the deep love with which you are making the events connected with Garabandal more widely known. May the Message of the Mother of God find an entrance into hearts before it is too late. As an expression of joy and gratitude, the Holy Father gives you his apostolic blessing.”
Meantime promoters of those Messages have a responsibility to ensure their integrity is maintained by not confusing or associating them with those of other alleged apparitions.
Thank you John and Michael in sharing this very important and timely discourse. It is very reassuring to be in the company of and supported by such well informed and devoted brothers.
God bless you both
Assuring you of my prayers
Thank you Pete.
Keep praying: time is about to run out…
Thanks Pete… Thanks be to God and Our Lady of Garabandal !
Question: Why are comments advocating Medjugorje still permitted on a Garabandal News Blog?!
The judgement of the ordinary of the diocese (the local bishop) has always been the standard for approbation or condemnation of an apparition. In the case of Medjugorje, the Bishop of Mostar spoke with a clear clarion voice on the matter.
Which sadly has been forgotten.
In this excerpt from a letter to Mr. Thierry Boutet (the editor of Famille Chrétienne), the ordinary of the Diocese of Mostar (Bishop Ratko Peric), in which Medjugorje is located, says that he judges the alleged apparitions to be proven False and Not Supernatural.
Mostar October 2, 1997
Protocol Number: 1267/97
Honorable Mr. Boutet,
I am answering your letter of September 29, 1997 received by fax from the Nunciature of Sarajevo…
On the basis of the serious study of the case by 30 of our ‘studiosi’ [academics] (well three Commissions), on my episcopal experience of five years in the Diocese, on the scandalous disobedience that surrounds the phenomenon, on the lies that are at times put into the mouth of the “Madonna”, on the unusual repetition of “messages” of over 16 years, on the strange way that the “spiritual directors” of the so-called “visionaries” accompany them through the world making propaganda of them, on the practice that the “Madonna” appears at the “fiat” (let her come!) of the “visionaries”,
my conviction and position is not only non constat de supernaturalitate [the supernaturality is not proven] but also the other formula constat de non supernaturalitate [the non-supernaturality is proven] of the apparitions or revelations of Medjugorje.
CONSTAT DE NON SUPERNATURALITATE means:
– the non-supernaturality is proven
– it is evident to be of non-supernatural origin
– it is established not supernatural
Incidentally, the local bishops of Quito, La Salette, Fatima, Tre Fontane, San Sebastian de Garabandal and Akita NEVER pronounced the condemnation we see manifested in Medjugorje.
Also, Father Malachi Martin (a reader of the Third Secret of Fatima and a believer in Our Lady of Garabandal) completely and utterly rejected Medjugorje as being a “Satanic Hoax”.
It would appear that some people are deceived because they want to be deceived.
PS – Dear administrator, please stop posting comments that draw the readers attention away from Garabandal on this blog. Certainly, there are plenty of Medjugorje blogs that would welcome them to post all the comments they want.
Thanking you in advance. Sincerely and respectfully,
No Medjugorje references have been seen by me or subsequently published since the correspondences of the 8th of Jan
Great information & detail Michael.
A timely reminder to avoid confusion by promoting more than one apparition at a time. The Holy Virgins instruction to make Her Messages known throughout the world require no further qualification and must always assume priority; even above other similar manifestations. This is particularly important as the fulfillment of the major prophecies draws ever closer.
United in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

Addressing half a million pilgrims in Fatima on May 13, 2010, then-Pope Benedict XVI cautioned: “Whoever thinks that the prophetic mission of Fatima is over, is deceived.” Both he and Sister Lucia have said that the Third Secret speaks about the end times, and reflects the prophecies in the Bible.
She is quoted in a 1986 book on the Third Secret: “The Most Holy Virgin made me understand that we are living in the last times of the world.”
Another Fatima disciple, the Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, a hugely popular American TV preacher in the last century, declared: “… the two great forces of the Mystical Body of Christ and the mystical body of Antichrist are beginning to draw up their battle lines for a catastrophic contest.”
That echoes Sister Lucia’s own words in a 1957 interview: “She told me that the devil is about to wage a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin, … where one side will be victorious and the other side will suffer defeat. Also, from now on we must choose sides. Either we are for God or we are for the devil; there is no in-between.”
‘The world has gone the opposite way’
Well, if the Fatima apparitions are supposed to get mankind on God’s side in some cataclysmic final confrontation, it looks like the world missed the message.
The year after being nearly fatally shot, John Paul II reviewed the Third Secret, then lamented: “The world has gone in the opposite direction than the one intended by Our Lady at Fatima.”
Father Malachi Martin has told us that he has read the Third Secret — he announced that on the Art Bell radio program, which we have on audio tape. In addition, in answer to a number of questions, Father Malachi Martin stated that Our Lady came to Garabandal, Spain, because the Third Secret was not released in 1960 as She had requested. As a result, Our Lady appeared in 1961 — one year after the Vatican failed to release the Third Secret — and She basically released the Secret to the four children at Garabandal, or at least within the message of Garabandal. And the most striking thing of all in that message is “many Cardinals, bishops and priests are going to hell and dragging many souls with them” and that a great chastisement awaits mankind because of the sins of this time.
Maria I think anybody who wants to promote anything here from Medjugorje is being disrespectful to all of us here but more importantly to, especially Our Lady, as well as Pete & Aviso.
It’s their blog & they have clearly put down where they sit with Medjurgorje.
Yes I agree that Medjugorje is extremely doubtful, but another of ‘alleged’ apparitions of Our Lady they don’t agree with I happen to believe!
But will not post anything here re those messages!
That.is something Our Lady has taught me. Respect & humility!
So please – nothing more with a Medjugorje connection.
God bless all.
I was wondering if 2021 will be the year of Revelation 21, a New Heaven and New Earth, no more sea, and The Citiy of new Jerusalem coming down from Heaven.
And I received the answer reading on Mystic Post. I think Father Livio is right.
Signs of the Times—Medjugorje: Father Livio: ‘I believe that the time of secrets coincides with the 40th year of appearances” “Time is running out”… Jesus and the Number 40
FATHER LIVIO: I BELIEVE THAT AT THE 40TH YEAR OF THE APPARITIONS WE WILL BE THE TIME OF THE SECRETS. AND A CONFIRMATION FROM THE “BOOKS OF HEAVEN” ON THE DIVINE WILL REVEALS A CLUE
So 40 years of apparitions that started in 1981 will be 2021.
Just as the Warning from Garabandal, 1961, came at WTC 9/11/2001 – 40 years comes the Judgment. As Jesus said that the Temple of Jerusalem will be destroyed – so it came 40 years after.
“Less than two years are left, never before has the Director of Radio Maria been so concerned. During the press review of September 13 (min. 29 et seq.) He returned to a sentence from the Message of Our Lady of September 2nd last that had struck everyone: “There is no time to hesitate to kneel before my Son, to recognize him as God “. Well, Father Livio Fanzaga said he wanted to verify the Croatian original – Maria communicates with the visionaries in their language – the expression translated as “No time” and the sense, dictionary in hand, seemed even stronger , something like “There is no time to lose”, “There is no more time”, “Time is running out”, which in the context of the Message he would make with the expression “We are running out”. Hence the statement about the Time of Secrets: “Given that we are now in the 38th year of the apparitions, I really believe that at 40 …”. On the other hand, he continued, “40” is a crucial and symbolic biblical time because it recalls the years in the desert of the people of Israel.
We are different in considering the timing of the 40 years in things. And the most recent Messages of Mary. they have reinforced this conviction: there is a different and sometimes definitive tone and then many expressions sown here and there as if to orientate those who had sufficient light – I quote only one sentence from the July 25 message: “The tests will come and you will not be strong and sin will reign “.
A confirmation on the “40” that has a really final taste is given directly by Jesus in the Books of Heaven written, in the first half of the 1900s, by the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, “Adveniat Regnum Tuum, fiat voluntas Tua sicut in caelo et in terra” I reproduce the passages in full view given the delicacy of the theme.
“My daughter, do you think it is by chance that you have held her prisoner for forty years and more, without a great drawing of mine? No, no! The number forty was always significant, and preparatory for big works. Forty years the Jews walked through the desert without being able to reach the promised land, their homeland, but after forty years of sacrifices they had the good of taking possession of it. But how many miracles, how many graces, up to nourish them with heavenly manna, in that time! A prolonged sacrifice holds virtue and strength to obtain great things from God.
I in my life down here wanted to stay forty days in the desert secluded by everyone, since my Mama, to go out in public to announce the Gospel that was to form the life of my Church, that is, the Kingdom of Redemption; forty days I wanted to remain risen to confirm my Resurrection and to put the seal on all the goods of the Redemption.
So I wanted for you, my daughter; to manifest the Kingdom of my Divine Will, I wanted forty years of sacrifices, but how many graces I did not give you! how many manifestations! I can say that in this prolixity of time I put in you all the capital of the Kingdom of my Will and all that is necessary to make it understandable to creatures “(10 October 1928).
There is much that you have written here Maria and in your previous post and it is no small task to pen so many reflections. I will need time to give justice to your comments and subsequent thoughts of my own for consideration.
Time is short for sure, natural disasters will increase for sure as mortal sin becomes more abundant and common place, the world and men’s hearts become haters of Truth the more the Church enters in to the darkness of error for sure.
Keep praying, be the little tea-light in the window of your neighborhood for the darkenes will not overcome the Light
Hello Pete & Maria.
Torments, pestilence, chastisements are all told us in the bible.
Many writings and prophecies of the saints tell us Almighty God chastises to correct us and bring us back to the path of Love.
God and Only God is true complete & absolute Love!
Those of us blest with children know what it is to chastise our children to protect them – because we love them!
The opposite path is that of Hate. No prize for answering where that lies!
The fires in Australia are terrible & devastating & sad because of the losses being suffered on the beaches and in the ‘bush’ as Aussies call it.
The state of NSW has only recently given a green light to abortion! And now it suffers the worst wild fires in its history!
The state of Victoria has been a world leader in Invitrofertilisation and has allowed abortions for several years!
It’s present premier is supposed to be a catholic! Really!
Is any body, any leader in Australia, possessed with the gift of the Holy Spirit called “ Fortitude” & game enough to call out these chastisements for what they are?
Still waiting to see that happen!
Not one Bishop in Australia has that strength either! Some shepherds, them!
All that is required is one political leader (or for that matter Catholic Church leader) to state the obvious and call on Aussies to pray, do penance & make reparation and the chastisements in the form of the fires will cease & rain will come to break the droughts!
God will provide for his children if they will oblige him!
The same applies across the world – every country!
Imagine if 10% of the population in every country in the world started saying the rosary every day!
Our Pope might suddenly be converted to become a Catholic!
Just like Saul (who stood & watched Stephen give his life for his Redeemer), who, by the grace of God, through the intercession of Our Lord’s first disciple, the Virgin Mary, was converted to become a great general in Our lord’s army fighting Satan & all his cohorts, the present Pope Francis could be converted!
Millions are praying for Pope Francis! Is anything impossible with God?
And don’t forget Our Sorrowful & Immaculate Mother!
God bless all here.
Keep the faith – Our Lady for the greater glory of Almighty God WILL be victorious no matter how bad things seem.
Pray the Rosary Aussies, pray and you will see God’s love & protection right at your door!
I know personally padre Livio Fanzaga very well and I can assure you that he does not like sensationalism or alarmism at all. Quite the opposite, in fact!
I can confirm your timing with a further evidence. A friend of mine, who is a driver in Medjugorje has testified several times that he had asked a very specific question to Vicka in 2001, twenty years after the beginning of the apparitions (1981) and the revelation of the secrets to the visionaries. He asked her: “If you can not tell us the date of the secrets, can you at least tell us with a football metaphor, where are we in the match?”. Vicka replied, “The second half has already started,” thus implicitly bringing us to 2021, AT THE LATEST (as I understood it, this refers to the starting of the secrets).
We do not know how long the time of the secrets will last, but we do know that the secrets include the Chastisement(s).
As regards your concern about the shores, I can confirm that ANY human being living on ANY coastline will be at serious danger, with ltlle or no warning, during the final stage of the time of the secrets (Chastisements).
God bless. Let s pray.
Hi! Do you know in wich month your friend asked Vicka about that?
It was not much after the 20th anniversary of the apparitions which occurred on June 24, 2001. There were huge expectations at the time about the fulfillment of the secrets…The 40th anniversary will obviously occur on June 2021…
God bless. Let’s pray.
I have very, very serious doubts as to Medugorje. The lives of the original priest involved and some of the seers being either scandalous or less than good. Should this be here on a Garabandal site, or on a Medugorje one?
I’m pleased you raised this Concerned and thankyou. Its a welcome change for someone other than me or Aviso reminding visitors to this site of our views and stance on Medjugorje. As you say, may everyone refrain from discussion here and keep it for its own web sites. The only permissible admission will be content evidencing it as an aberration
Dear Pete, my good Friend, let me ask you for not publishing any new messages related to Medjugorje on our blog anymore, my Friends this is a blog about Garabandal, I and many here do not believe or do not accept the Gospa of Medjugorje as true and from our Lady, thank you.
PS : From the late Father Gruner, my own mentor : “believing in Medjugorje and you end to hell” (minutes 10,24 in the video), anyone believing or promoting anything related to the gospa of Medjugorje is on the road to Perdition, I said it 1000’s times online, no one should believe or promote heresies from this satanic apparition of Medjugorje, the Lord said it himself, no mercy for anyone insulting or denigrating his own Mother, in other word our Lady, believing in the satanic Gospa of Medjugorje is de facto the case, thank you.
Moreover, Maria, on 1st January 2001, as to underline the special 20 years mark, Our Lady has given us a specially meaninguful message, mentioning that satan had been realeased from its chains (for a limited time, obviously) by then:
“My dear children, now that when satan is unchained, I desire you to be consecrated to My Heart and the Heart of My Son Jesus…”
THIS REQUEST FROM OUR MOTHER IS TODAY MORE URGENT THAN EVER, considering the events unfolding in the Middle East, which can be seen as the final stage of the ‘process’ started on 11 Septemmber 2001.
Medjugorgie is fake, everyone know it.
I think is our duty to warn the people what Our Lady said to Conchita at Garabandal that is A SIN TO GO TO THE BEACH. We read about all kinds of accidents, plane crush on the beach, shark attacks, fires at hotels, so many people die because they never heard all the profecies at Garabandal, or they don’t believe.
The news today saying “Hell in Australia: entire cities are evacuated, thousands of people are stranded for several days on a beach
Thousands of tourists have been given less than 48 hours to evacuate cities off the coast of Australia, devastated by fires, as authorities expect the fire to spread over 240 kilometers over the weekend.
People on the coast of New South Wales (NSW) are warned to leave by Saturday, when gusts of wind and temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius are forecast. Whole cities on the southeast coast, highly visited by tourists, have been ordered to evacuate A ship with a capacity of 1,000 people, off the coast of Malacoota, Victoria, is expected to evacuate some of the 4,000 people who are stranded on a beach on New Year’s Eve , watching as much of the city was destroyed. Also, military helicopters come to the aid of the firefighters, carrying water and diesel, authorities quoted by the local press.”
In the last years there was fires at the beaches in Greece, California, and other places. Not only that but we see the TEMPERATURE RISING – as our Lady warned us. Even Vatican supports ONU with measures for “climate changes” ignoring that this comes because the sins of going to the beach and immorality. It was people around Bishop of Santander that called Conchita, brought her to the hair saloon, and to the beach. That time Our Lady did not appear to Conchita and later told her why.
So there is a great risk for people not to be baptised ot even for Christians that ignore the prophecies – millions die in wars, earthquakes, tsunami, fires, hurricanes, etc. as the biblie and the prophecies of Virgin Mary said in many places.
A powerful earthquake off the coast of Sumatra, Indonesia, on December 26, 2004 sets off a tsunami that wreaks death and devastation across the Indian Ocean coastline. The quake was the second strongest ever recorded and the estimated 230,000 dead made this disaster one of the 10 worst of all time.
One year prior to this earthquake and tsunami, almost to the hour, a 6.6-magnitude quake rocked Bam, Iran, killing 30,000 people.
A happy and holy Christmas to everyone in this house.
Aviso, do you have any news of a date for the warning and miracle? i know you said you wont speculate anymore but it would be great if you could post it on the blog anyway, thanks pat
My Friends, Merry Christmas to all of you.
God Bless, Aviso
merry christmas and a happy new year to you and family aviso, keep up the good work.
I have been watching Thomas Fahy on his talks, and he was told by 2 priests that the Miracle will be an even year (I have heard of this before). And, since the Miracle is not on a Holy Thursday….. then we are looking at 11th April 2024.
Not the Miracle (possibly), but the Warning COULD happen in an ‘even’ year. The following is an alleged email from Maria Saraco to a person (named Grieg) that contacted her via a friend of him who provided her contact. You can find the email online on a Grieg’s post. Maria Saraco allegedly answered Grieg’s question after Mari Loli passed away.
““Dear Greg…First of all, Mari-Loli is at Saint!!! Yes, She did know the date of the Warning but our Blessed Mother didn’t tell her to keep it a secret or to tell anyone about it. Our Blessed Mother told her that the Miracle would be one year or less from the Warning. In other words our Blessed Mother didn’t say anything about the date of the Warning… But Loli felt that it was best to keep it secret. However, she did tell a priest that the Warning would happen in an “even” year. The Warning will be Dec 21, 2012??? The Miracle will be April 11, 2013. These are my own thoughts… Not Mari-Loli and not our Blessed Mother. It is something I feel in my heart. God Bless you. Pray for me.

God bless. Let’s pray.
A small, but meaningful, initiative of the (only) pope, Benedict XVI, against the dangerous doctrinal drift of the German bishops. The real pope, as far as he is still alive, is the ‘Katekon’. Sorry, only on Italian:
God bless. Let’s pray.
One of the seers stated (can’t find it right now) that the time between the Warning and Miracle was associated with a 3. She didn’t know if it was 3 days, 3 weeks, or 3 months. January to April is 3 months. With the even year specification and no Holy Week, it looks as if it is the years of 2024 or 2030 are it. Ruffini the stigmatist in the 1990’s was asked when the consecration of Russia will occur: “No, it s not John Paul. It will not be his immediate successor either, but the one after that (yiks it’s Francis, ed.) . He is the one who will consecrate Russia. That is, Benedicts successor, during this time of world war and persecution of the Church.” It looks as if Francis (after his conversion due to the Warning) will be the one who will do the consecration. Since Francis is now 83, 2030 is not possible (he would be 93). 2024 looks like the date! Things will really have to accelerate here shortly! World wide economic collapse, Russia and China attack and destroy the USA is in our future if this is to happen.
True, Daniel. Except that Benedict XVI IS CURRENTLY REIGNING AS A POPE. If you examine carefully all the resignation PLOT you will understand that Ratzinger sort of DELEGATED the exercise of the privileges and prerogatives of the papacy from the OPERATIVE point of view to Card. Bergoglio, maintaining for himself the ‘ownership’ of the Papacy…They did it based on a mutual (and illicit) agreement…An agreement that is well known by many, if not all, Cardinals…it’s a secret hidden in plain sight..If you search carefully, you will even discover that they announced this so to speak ‘bifurcation’ of the papacy office well in advance…My self-imposed rule of silence does not allow me to say more!
Therefore in no way Bergoglio should be considered Benedict XVI’s succsssor. Let’s put it this way: in a sense they are co-popes…Bergoglio maintains a very loose legitimity as far as Ratzinger is alive (and this is the reason why Ratzinger is still alive :-))…After Ratzinger dies (supposing, as reasonable, that he will die first) Bergoglio either steps down or he will became TOTALLY illegitimate as a ‘pope’. Thus Benedict XVI’s successor will the first Pope of the New Era…a totally different ‘kind’ of Pope…A real ‘Totus Tuus’ Pope (unlike the last one).
God bless. Let’s pray.
This picture is highly symbolic:
It was taken on 28 April 2009 in L’Aquila (Italy): an earthquake had just destroyed the city and its Cathedral: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009_L%27Aquila_earthquake
In the Cathedral is buried THE LAST POPE WHO RESIGNED, Celestino V ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Celestine_V )
In the picture Benedict the XVI depose its PALLIUM, a now almost exclusive papal garment and somewhat a symbol of the papacy itself ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pallium ) on the body of its predecessor who resigned five centuries before, and LEAVE IT THERE against the background of an almost destroyed Basilica.
WITH THIS SIGN RATZINGER WAS ANNOUNCING OPENLY, in April 2009, THE DECISION HE HAD TAKEN TO STEP DOWN in the near future. Benedict XVI was also prophetically hinting to the future fate of Rome:
“”During the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church, the seat will be occupied by Peter the Roman, who will feed the flock with/in many tribulations; and when these things are finished, the seven-hilled city WILL BE DESTROYED, and the formidable Judge will judge his people. The End.” (St Malachi’s Prophecy: the list of the last pope of the OLD ERA, from Celestine II to Benedict XVI http://saint-malachy.org/New/Home/Malachy )
The Antichrist is appearing. Be brave. Resist.
sorry why not 2022 or 2026 ??
where did this idea of the miracle not being on a holy thursday come from? source please??
My Friends, I was in Garabandal during the last week-end, pictures and video will be online soon, let me thank again my good Friend Michael for his welcome and friendship, thank you.
Evening Aviso, I was very interested to read the below artical in which an Anglican Bishop and former Chaplin to the Queen shares how Garabandal played a role in his conversation to Catholicism.
Thank you for the link Pete, my Good Friend and Brother in Christ, by the way I was thinking about you a lot recently especially during my last stay in Garabandal, so let me tell you that it is a honor for having you with us here on the blog, when I chose to entrust you for taking care of our blog, I knew that I was making a good choice, your Humility and Knowledge for our faith were to me already a fact, so let me thank you again for your good job, this blog is your home, please stay with me and next to me here for ever and never leave us, we need you and be sure that our Lady of the Mount Carmel is probably proud of you, please be sure of it, thank you again.
Dear anonymous ,
How are you to discern that Pope Francis is not the legitimate pope ? I too am greatly dismayed , shocked , saddened at some of the happenings within this pontificate. I may rightly resist some of his statements and even his Amoris latettia , but I think it is very dangerous to outright condemn him. Which it seems you are doing. Perhaps he will have a conversion beyond explanation and belief. I do know that he asks daily for us to pray for him. I do know that that Christ said the church will not be prevailed against. I do know the catechism states quite clearly that there will be a final battle that will test the faith of many ! It seems you know the tenets of the faith. Perhaps the best we can do is become saints and to pray and sacrifice daily and pray not to be put to the test as Christ himself advised and taught. These are clearly extremely confusing times for many , but if we pray and stay with the ancient magisterium and all of the beautiful , holy , writings of the old saints and pray pray pray for humility and truth , frequent the sacraments , perhaps a holy hour everyday and rosary , and of course Mass as often as possible , maybe we can be one of which seems to be very few of the non straying flock. I believe Saint Paul speaks quite clearly of how many will be deceived. I am going to spend time begging our Blessed Mother to lead me to her son everyday and to not be deceived. I want to assist in building up the body of Christ We are all poor beggars so to speak . We must spend time in silence and prayer. This maybe the passion of the Church , and remember Christ in his passion barely spoke , I think he prayed the entire way I am not here to correct as I fully appreciate all on this blog. Avisio , Pete , Juan and others including Michael from the center are just incredible. Two different priests as well and others. Thank you. Thank you. Pete a special thanks to you. You write just beautifully and humbly.
Let us spend most of our time praying and you will know when you have to resist. We have the traditional mass in many areas. The period of Peace will eventually come. Be ready to be a martyr pray to not be tested. I am astonished that Cardinals could fall so easily. There seem to be many bishops and cardinals , but there are many holy ones. Bishop Anthanasius Schneider implores us to pray for the pope.
If these men of prayer are not imposters and fall so easily after years of prayer and reflection , we best all be very careful.
Did Christ pick Judas to be one of the twelve , even though he knew his final choice would be full betrayal ? It is a great mystery. Perhaps the church is getting what it needs in a sense so that it can be purged and made more perfect .
God Bless all my friends and apostles on this site. A beautiful Advent to you all. Christ will come again.
Due to the rude and annoying reactions of Aviso (not the firsy one), I will not contibute to this blog anymore. I will continue to pray for everybody anyway, be sure of that!
If you are REALLY interested in why Bergoglio IS DEFINITELY NOT A LEGITIMATE POPE (this is a matter of fact, not my opinion) please contact me privately: firstname.lastname@example.org.
God bless. Let’s pray!
Addio a tutti e ogni bene!
Addio, non è questo il modo di aiutare i nostri fratelli in questi tempi difficili per la Chiesa, almeno per me, ma ho un grande rispetto per don Minutella, diglielo , grazie.
PS : Per favore prega per me.
Certo che prego per te, Alban.
Quando ho detto che pregavo per tutti, avevo nel cuore anche te.
Forse hai ragiome tu: ciò che so è un peso troppo pesante per molti: magari è meglio pregare e tacere.
Don Minutella è un combattente coraggioso: merita tutto il nostro rispetto e la nostra preghiera. Purtroppo commette, in buona fede, un errore non marginale (cui sono certo il Signore saprà come riparare). Gli farò avere quanro prima i tuoi saluti e la tua attestazione di stima.
Scusami se, sanza volerlo, ti ho urtato: non era mia intenzione.
Sei un tale filatore
An interesting (and very actual) excerpt from last book of Antonio Socci (in Italia):
God bless. Let’s pray.
If the feast day of St. Tarcisius was moved after Vatican II to August 15th, is it so hard to find what it was moved from?
According to my comprehensive research, the fest of Saint Tarcisius was NEVER moved.
If he is the Saint, the Miracle must happen on 15 April.
God bless. Let’s pray.
Aviso Do you have any convictions about what represents the rare event in the Catholic Church that will occur on the day of the Great Miracle?
Sorry to step in…The ‘rare event’ is most likely a Schism, presumably triggered by an evil Synod (ratified by the ‘pope’).
God bless. Let’s pray!
The proclamation of the fifth Marian Dogma please God! As envisioned by St John Bosco the Church needs to secure itself/herself to the two great pillars of our faith – the Eucharist and Our Lady.
Yes Fr Chris, Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate, let’s hope, something positive for a change
Dear Pete, thank you and yes, let’s be positive.
First, let me say that we can have every confidence in Our Lord even as we seem to be facing unsolvable trials in our respective homelands and within Holy Mother Church. In today’s readings for the memorial of St Ambrose we hear how comprehensive God’s wisdom is in dispensing the mystery of Christ and how this mystery unfolds “exactly according to the plan which he had had from all eternity in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Ephesians 3:8-12). THANKS BE TO GOD!
The reason that I mentioned the dogma of Mary Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate is 1st the response of Conchita in 1973.
Q. You have said that the Miracle of Garabandal will coincide with a great event within the Church. Did Our Lady tell you what that event will be, and can you add anything to what you have already said about this matter?
A. Yes, I know what the event is. It is a singular event in the Church that happens very rarely, and has never happened in my lifetime. It is not new or stupendous, only rare, like a definition of a dogma — something like that in that it will affect the entire Church. It will happen on the same day as the Miracle, but not as a consequence of the Miracle, only coincidentally. http://www.garabandal.org/News/Garabandal_Warning_Miracle_Interviews.shtml
Second, it makes good sense to me as a priest. I may be wrong, but I conceive of the miracle as Eucharistic. Therefore, let me outline my position in three points:
!. Eucharist means Christ’s presence; Eucharist means perpetuation of the (propitiatory) Sacrifice – renewing that which was accomplished by Jesus on Calvary; and Eucharist means communion with Christ including the offering of ourselves in the Eucharistic Sacrifice along with Our Lord.
2. The fifth dogma will allow Christ’s faithful to understand not only Mary’s role in redemption, but their own. Further, it will give Our Lady our consent that she may lead the Church in her own passion that we may be formed after the image of her Son.
3. Both the Eucharistic miracle and the fifth Marian dogma coinciding make perfect sense for the renewal of the Church.
Perhaps then comes the great deception and the antichrist.
Dear Fr Chris,
I wish you are right and I am sure that the dogma you mention will be proclaimed, but later: It will seal the Triumph of Our Lady against Satan.
But, as Benedict XVI is the pope of the Miracle and in charge is Bergoglio. an apostate proto-protestant (and you need the pope to proclaim a Dogma!) who systematically undervalue publicly Our Queen, I am pretty sure the ‘event’ will be something similar to a Schism than to a Dogma proclamation (you can see a Schism also as a consequence of the proclamation of a false dogma).
Do not forget that the miracle will happen when the situation will be at its worst ans will seem without hope.
Moreover, with the proclamation of such a Dogma the (conditional) Chastisements would not be necessary, but Conchita mentioned them as a serious possibility. Any possible improvement of the situation will come after the Miracle.
Please remember me and my intentions in you Holy Mass.
God bless. Let’s pray.
As from January 2020 new Missals will come into force: at the moment of the Consecration the “dew” will be invoked on the bread and wine, instead of the “Holy Spirit” (not a joke!). We are rapidly approaching the end-times invalid Holy Masses prophesied at Garabandal?
God bless. Let’s pray.
Where are you getting this info from?
Is an almost ‘secret’ operation, but ongoing. The best source I could find, unfortunately, is only in Italian (I suggest listening from minute 33:00 till the end):
God bless. Let’s pray.
Also, in Italian:
Dear Anonymous, it seems that this is just the third Italian translation of the Roman Missal (as ever, I could be wrong). I was alarmed before, less so now. Here is a related article from the Diocese of Frosinone, “The III edition of the Roman Missal between tradition and progress” https://liturgia.diocesifrosinone.it/liturgia/41-/539-iii-edizione-del-messale-romano-tra-tradizione-e-progresso.html
Dear Fr Chris,
Yes, i believe that the change, at this stage, will impact only on the Italian Mass, as it is presented as a ‘translation’ initiative of the Italian Conference of Bishops (CEI). Nonetheless the exact texts of the new ‘translation’ are not yet fully known and it seem that the changes might affect also the epiclesis in a significant way.
We will know better if and how when the actual texts will be publicly available, by mi-January 2020.
God bless. Let’s pray.
My humble proposal for today’s meditation (Our Lady of Guadaloupe who, almost alone, evangelised Central America):
God bless. Let’s pray.
The well informed reports that Bergoglio has just (Feast of the Immaculate Conception 2019!) chosen his successor (at least this is his intention) and named him Prefect of the Missionary Service of the Vatican (‘Propaganda Fide’). Everyone can imagine which religion they would like to put forward:
God bless. Let’s pray.
I do not want this kind of Picture on my blog, I do not like it, this is my last call to you, thank you.
Dear Fr Chris, may I ask you from which diocese you belong and the Name of your Bishop, thank you.
Pete and Fr. Chris, just in relation to this point of “dewfall” and the Holy Spirit – it is a point made by Cardinal Vigano in his just released statement on the condition of the Church under Francis and what he, Cardinal Vigano, regards as Francis’s slighting of Our Lady.
So maybe there is some significance to this if it is considered important enough to be included in an indictment of where Francis is leading the Church.
Apologies, obviously that should have read “Archbishop Carlo Maria, ” rather than, “Cardinal”.
Dear anon, I agree with Pete’s sentiment.
We hear at Mass (Eucharistic prayer II, epiclesis), “Make holy, therefore, these gifts, we pray, by sending down your Spirit upon them like the dewfall, so that they may become for us the Body and Blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ.”
Where are you getting this from?
Dear friends, after posting my last comment in regards to the way I conceive of the Miracle (referred to by the visionaries of Garabandal), I wish to state that this is only my personal belief. I actually hold it quite strongly but I am not entirely sure from where it arose!
I would argue that the miracle of the pines would be similar to the Miracle of the Eucharist in that it will be a sign of God’s presence. Second, as the Eucharist is the source/summit or fount/apex of the whole Christian life (Lumen Gentium 11) there must be an association between the two miracles. Last, I think messages of Our Lady to the priests that I read in the 90s, and that often referred to the Eucharistic reign of Jesus, have become part of my belief system. Below is a message from 1990 (He Loved Them to the End) …
“In fact, the coming of the glorious reign of Christ will coincide with the greatest splendour of his Eucharistic reign among you. The Eucharistic Jesus will release all his power of love, which will transform souls, the Church and all humanity.
Thus the Eucharist becomes a sign of Jesus who, still today, loves you to the end, because He is leading you to the end of these times of yours, to introduce you into the new era of holiness and of grace, toward which you are all journeying, and which will begin at the moment when Jesus will have restored his glorious reign in your midst.”
For these reasons I believe the miracle of the pines will be closely related to the Miracle of the Eucharist. Feel free to disagree.
Dear Fr. Chris. I also have followed Fr. Gobbi from the end of the 80s and had the privilege of being and talk with him many times. I absolutely agree with you and think that most probably the miracle will be Eucharistic. The little miracle dealt with the Eucharist in the form of Holy Communion and the great miracle will be most probably also connected with the Eucharist. The pines ground of Garabandal is an extraordinary place of Grace. I know of people who saw a staircase like the one of Jacob starting in the middle of the pines and going up to the gates of heaven which are open in that place explaining the outpouring of graces there.
Tomorrow is (also) the Saint-Day of Conchita. Let’s all pray for her, her beloved ones and the fulfillment of her mission related to the Garabandal events.
God bless. Let’s pray.
My dear Juan,
Happy to hearing from you!
I find your reference to the ‘staircase’ to heaven, APPARENTLY casual very , very meaningful!
I just made some considerations, on this blog, about the Great Orthodox Lent (as regards the black liturgical color mentioned by Conchita as related to the day of the Miracle) .
The Great Orthodox Lent is composed by five weeks, as ours. On the IV week of the Great Lent, the Orthodox Church celebrates Saint John “Climacus” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Climacus , https://orthodoxwiki.org/John_Climacus . “Climacus”, interestingly, means ‘that ascend the staircase to heaven’ as clear also from his iconography and with clear reference to the Saint’s ascetic temperament and attitude. His most renowned work is, in fact, an ascetic treaty title “Klimax tou Paradeisou’, “staircase to Heaven’ in Greek. Due to the relationship between Garabandal and Russia (and thus the Orthodox Church) I have checked at which point of the Orthodox Great Lent will fall the IV week in 2021 and, interestingly enough, it come out that it will span from 12 to 18 April, exactly the period we consider most suitable for the Miracle. The vision of the ‘staircase’ by your friends (or yourself?!), dear Juan, might mean a lot!
Also: your reference to Jacob is meaningful, as we can consider the current period of human history as it’s ‘Jacob’s trouble’, i.e. the start of a singular period of ‘Tribulation’ (or ‘Birth pains’).
Against the current background, I would not be particularly surprised if Conchita, on the night between the 7 and 8 of April 2021 will announce the Miracle happening on Thursday 15 April 2021.
Obviously, she might not: we’ll see, God willing.
In any case is too yearly for rejoicing because, after the Miracle, the Katekon (Benedict XVI) will be temporarily removed and we will fully enter the time of the Antichrist, which will be the time of our Testimony (or martyrdom). Thereafter, Our Lady will triumph definitely on her enemies.
The Miracle will serve to give us strength for the really hard times to come!!!
The New World Order is setting the stage for the coming antichrist:
God bless. Let’s pray.
Dear Juan, I also have met Fr Gobbi in the 90s. At that time I was facing 5-10 years in prison and I had just become Catholic. A long story short, Our Lady saved me and led me to become her priest. I absolutely love the analogy of a stairway to heaven made present in the pines. That is so beautiful. Anyhow, we will see. Wishing you a holy and grace-filled Christmas.
Indeed, Fr Chris,
The Eucharist will have to play the central role, together with Our Lady, in the new era which will follow the present ‘end of times’.
May Our Lord accelerate this outcome, because we all extremely need this!
God bless! Let’s pray.
where did the detail that conchita would be very old come from?
From a discussion with a priest (also reported on this blog), friend of Conchita, who was asking her about the date of the Miracle, trying to second-guess it.
Consider that, for a child, the concept of ‘very old’ may be quite relative.
God bless. Let’s pray.
Yes Anonymous, we have our own opinion about it which we got during our investigation, I am sorry to tell it in public but this event will not be a good news for the Church, it looks that it’s something related to a Schism and Papacy, in other words the consequence of that Schism within our Church and probably related to Priesthood and the Eucharist according to what we learned and conclude ourselves, the Pope being not in Rome that day, I can already say that any change to our Church teachings will be de facto invalid, Brothers in Christ, very dark time for the Church as for the World are probably front of us, the current situation at the Top is still nothing comparing to what we learned within the Fatima 3rd secret and Garabandal as both to us are linked, this is it, thank you.
PS : My Friends, when someone question me, please let me reply myself, by the way I should be in Garabandal during this month of December and back with confirmation or not of some details related to Fatima which I got during my last stay in the village, also I thank again Pete, Juan and Michael for taking care of our great blog, we keep in touch, God Bless.
God bless you also, Alban.
May you trip to Garabandal be fruitful!
If you are in garabandal this month, can you ask the same person in garabandal who in 2015 told you that the warning is before 2020, if they have any new information about the warning please, as that timeline they gave you is now most likely wrong, it is now nearly 2020 so it is unlikely now to happen before 2020 as you said so seems you were right. would greatly appreciate if you could do this favour, i need some hope, will keep you in my prayers, your blog is wonderful and has kept me going.
Did Conchita actually say he was a young boy? If so, Aviso you would be right it would be Tarcisius! I realise the martyr is not meant to be Spanish….. just thought I would put that wonderful article in from the Garabandal magazine, I love this site Aviso, great discussions, you are doing a great job, pleased you have recovered from your illiness. I will get back on site soon. God bless everyone.
Below Barbara :
“The Miracle will take place on the feast of a young martyr of the Eucharist. It was a
boy who was carrying the Holy Communion to persecuted Christians. His playmates,
on seeing him go by, tried to force him to join their games. When he refused, they
stoned him to death and ran away. A Christian soldier who was passing by carried his
Conchita to French Friends, September 1963
Could we all please pray for Arch Fulton Sheen who was shortly to have been beatified, that his name is not sullied and he not be colluded against. His holiness, dedication to Eucharist adoration and unambiguous teaching do not suit some people of these times. May Our Lady protect his reputation so that he can be a model for us.
( a name mentioned is that of Fr Victor Ray, who if googled, is a married ‘priest’ of a very dubious sect).
My Friends, please just few words between us about the Garabandal Eucharist Martyr story, we have debunked the St Hermenegild possibility years ago here and elsewhere, I personnaly spent probably around a year about this topic only, in the village as with some relatives close to Father Laffineur, the Garabandal Pioneer and the only one who sent to Rome a full dossier about the Apparitions as he was asked for it, so what we know for sure to date about it :
1. It’s not St Hermenegild, the Eucharist Martyr is a young boy (a child), not spanish, Hermenegild was married and Spanish
2. It’s not on holy week, holy Thursday, our Lady or our Lord’s Feast
3. Description given by the seer herself match Saint Tarcisius
4. The Great Miracle will happen in April
5. De facto Probably not on April 13th
Those main details are to date, basic facts to many of us, thank you.
PS : By the way, please let me remind you also that on April 13th 1995, feast of St Hermenegild, based on some rumors from so called Garabandal experts, 1000’s of People without waiting any announcement from Conchita and convinced that the Great Miracle will be on April 13th as well, feast of St Hermenegild, traveled to the Village of Garabandal, creating chaos and confusion to the point that the Major had to call dozen of Police men to handle the situation, this story was reminded to me many times in the village and I was asked “as you have a blog about Garabandal, please remind it to your readers as well”, DONE, thank you.
Dear Pete, Aviso.
If you continue censoring me, I cannot help further in understanding the present and the future. Sorry!
God bless. Let’s pray!
Many talked to me about your comments in private, who are you ? I am censoring some of your messages because they are hard, stay within the blog rules, thank you.
There should not be private or public, only true or false. God is the Truth. For everyone, without distinction.
God bless you!
To reconcile Aviso’s info on Saint Tarcisius vs the fact that there is no, and probably there has never been in the history of the Church, a viable feast date in April for him, I wonder if somebody has ever considered the possibility that Conchita was giving us an information ON THE DAY ONLY, apart for the month. For example, if I was born on 25 June I could figuratively and to a certain extent say that I was born the “SAME DAY” as Jesus, who was born on 25 December. As Conchita wanted to keep a certain secrecy, this could be: ex post her indication will prove true, ex ante is very difficult to be discovered.
In such case we should consider 2021 as the closest date for the miracle.
I also wonder is somebody has ever consider that the fact that the ‘pope’ will be in Russia at the time of the miracle could mean that he will be there to find protection for himself (e.g. against a nuclear war or another impending extinction level event) . Russia possess the most extensive ans effective underground bunkers available and many heads of state, to the best of my knowledge, are asking protection to ‘Putin’ in case of extreme events (Bergoglio is one of them).
God bless. Let’s pray.
I have been thinking about this again: if it’s Saint Tarcisius, Conchita was certainly referring to the day of the month only (not to the day/month combination: the month was provided otherwise), namely the 15th. She would never give us an information false, misleading and that could endanger the credibility of Garabandal once the events will unfold.
Thus the possibility are:
15 April 2021 (Conchita will be 75)
15 April 2027 (…81)
15 April 2032 (…86)
15 April 2038 (…92)
2021 fits also from other perspectives which I will not elaborate on for the moment. None of the above is Holy Thursday.
If it’s not Saint Tarcisius, to me Saint Hermgild rests the more likely…and on that we have just discussed extensively.
God bless! Let’s pray.
“Second, A miracle is to occur in Garabandal within 12 months after the Warning… It will be on a Thursday at 8:30 p.m. on a feast-day of a martyred Saint for the Eucharist …( not a feast-day of Our Lady or Our Lord) … it will happen in the month of April… between the 7th and the 17th of the month but not the 7th or the 17th…..”
“Between the 07th and the 17th”, it is 12th of April 2029, feast of Saint Aviso, known also for his Great humility.
PS : Sorry I could not resist, thank you.
Follow my logic, please, Aviso and you’ll see that it can’t be different than described. Simply apply the logic…
God bless. Let’s pray…
Moreover…using simple logic.
As we all will be personally experiencing the illumination of conscience ONCE IT HAS HAPPENED the announcement of Conchita could be basically useless (because than it would be clear to everybody that the Miracle will happen within the following year, from 8 to 16 April, as no more than 365 should pass: non uncertainty any more).
The only way Conchita’s announcement will prove useful is IF AND ONLY IF she warns us about the Miracle BEFORE the Warning (and illumination of consciences) has happened. Thus, the Warning must happen LESS THAN 8 days before the Miracle and consequently not before the 1st of April of 202x or after the 8th April of the very same year 202x…
We should thus expect the Warning in this short period (8-18 April 202x) and the Miracles very shortly (8 days) after…
The sequence of events (Warning-Miracle) must thus be much shorter than commonly expected….
God bless. Let’s pray.
All that’s known for sure is a Warning (no prior announcement), a Miracle with a prior announcement 8 days in advance occurring some point within 12 months of the Warning, then a Permanent Sign.
Logic is logic, my dear Pete.
God bless! Let’s pray!
My point in essence is that all speculation, (my endeavour included), is based upon the premise that 2nd hand and 3rd hand reports of what Conchita is alleged to have said are true, for example:
1. It is said that after the vision in which Our Lady gave them the date, they consulted a calendar in the kitchen to see for themselves the name of the Eucharistic martyr Our Lady spoke of : if the name was Tarcisius, his name wouldn’t have been found, Hermenegild would have been. Is this story factually true and verified by Conchita as such. I can’t find anything to support it.
2. The story of Conchita and the French visitors leaves me feeling very uncomfortable, Conchita’s reported manner is out of character. Who originated the story, who is responsible for it and made it public, has it been evidenced as verified as true by Conchita?
3. One has to ask, given the volumes of professional reports, books and articles published as verifiable outputs from recorded interviews with the Seers and witnesses presented under all forms of media over the last 55 years, why, given it’s clear impact, has this proclamation to the French visitors re; Tarcisius never been published in any other reliable source material?
4. Why would Conchita reveal this detail to these visitors at that time, when in the past she and the others have refused point-blank to give any similar level of detail even to Church authorities, Priests and those appointed to investigate/research these happenings?
5. Incredibly, it is alleged that the event will take place between 7th and 17th of April. Why again has this not arisen numerous times across numerous publications for the very same reasons pointed out in item 5 above? Why when instructed by Our Lady; not to reveal the date, did they give such finite detail to these people. On other occasions when pressed by prelates and authors they refused. The only reliable statement on ‘when; from the Seers, is the Miracle will take place between March and May, on a Thursday coinciding with a feast of a Eucharistic martyr.
I remain unconvinced by this story with the French visitors, I remain unconvinced of the the Seers checking the calendar, more so since I recall reading Conchita saying when asked that they had no need to look at the date on a calendar as they knew it from Our Lady.
My giving consideration to Hermenegild was wholly based on what is uncontested published statements from Conchita (except the checking of the calendar). The premise of Logic founded on alleged nefarious statements pointing to Tarcisius is a logic resting on unqualified foundations. So in the end as I say, in my personal view only, it’s all a distraction, no logic is logical in this matter, except the logic of, we will know when it’s announced.
Finally and as a reminder statement from other Seers and Mystics mentioned in my previous posts, the Warning will take place at the beginning of the calendar year, at a time when it’s still cold and the days dark, not when warm and days long.
What you write is very true, and very logic. Similar questions have come to my mind.
Probably in a very unsystematic way (unfortunately I am not as rigorous as yourself), I will report here my answers and considerations.
About the fact that we are forced to rely on third-party reports, not on the textual words of the seers in the real and particular context where they were actually pronounced this is certainly true, but inevitable. We can only hope that at least who reported the facts was in good faith but we have to accept a certain degree of mediation and interpolation of the reality. Otherwise we should doubt everything (also the information provided to the ecclesial authorities especially because some have been retreated). Is not the same with the faith in general? Do we possess a single line written directly by Jesus (who could read and thus also write)? We are an itinerant community, the Church itself is. We must follow the right inspiration…be light for our brothers and sisters and, even when inspired, we still will have to decide what to say and how to say it. Conchita was not exception.
Did she said all what has been reported? I hope so because without assuming this, we could doubt everything.
Why she gave as certain details (assuming that she had to decide to some extent, in her free will and as a young girl,what to say and what not to say)? I think that she wanted to provide us with elements capable of confirming the divine nature of the events once realized, without saying too much and thus allowing us to second-guess too easily the real date, which she had to keep secret. Otherwise many could doubt that Himself God is acting: without an almost perfect premonition (in an era of diffused fake news and generalized manipulation of the information, many could doubt).
Is the story of the ‘calendar’ to which Conchita would have given a glance before answering to some occasional pilgrims true? Sincerely, I do not believe so. Certainly Conchita was very careful to express herself and has planned in advance what she could disclosed and how. On the other hand both if the saint was Tarcisius or Hermenegild (Hermgild) Conchita would not need a calendar at all: the first was commonly cited in Cathechism courses to children as an example of virtue and commitment to the Eucharist and the second was Saint Patron of her own nation…she certainly knew both of them and when they were celebrated.
So said, the logic should suggest this:
1. if Conchita mentioned Saint Tarcisius, than the date should be 15 April;
2. If Conchita mentioned a martyr of the Eucharist slayed when he was 22 year old, this is Hermgild and the date must be 13 April (or even 12 April because, technically, at 20:30 of 13 April the feast day is ended in biblical and thus liturgic terms as the day for the Jews goes from a sunset to the next one).
3. if Conchita mentioned simply a martyr of the Eucharist without further clarifications, whose actual feast is from 8 to 16 April, it can be either Hermgild or Stanislaus and the dates must be 11(10) April or 13(12) April.
4. otherwise, nothing can be seen about the precise day of the month and the year will remain undetermined until the Miracle happens…
I do not see a fifth possibility…
Nonetheless, about the time sequence Warning-Miracle I maintain my view: Conchita 8 days notice must happen before the Warning, otherwise it will be a nonsense for Conchita to announce anything as all of us would have experienced the ‘Aviso’ and, based on that, we’ll know precisely the date of the Miracle.
God bless. Let’s pray.
To be pedantic, who is Hermgild?
The spellings I know of are Hermenegild sometimes Ermengild,
They are all the same…depends on how you spell it…don’t worry. But I am pretty sure you knew already.
God bless. Let’s pray.
Hi Pete, my good Friend, let me confirm to you that the St Tarcisius possibility is not speculation but a meticulous investigation which I have done years ago in collaboration with some of my good friends in the village of Garabandal as with some very close Garabandalist friends around the world, our investigation was not based on books only but with close friends to each seer as to family of the seers with always a final verification at the source in the village, we even question Conchita regarding many topics, like papacy and so on, I was also able to interview Father Rolando, the current Priest, Amalia and Sari, loli’s sisters, Maximina Conchita’s aunt, Jacinta…etc….being myself French, I was myself in contact with the so called French friends of Conchita behind the St Tarcisius details, I met a member of that Group in Garabandal years ago with an interview of 2 hours….etc… we always can do better but this is it, so anyone can call it 1st, 2nd, 3rd hands or even more if they like but we feel we have done a good job, by the way and recently, we are also behind this important detail about an important Synod before the Warning….etc….so for our readers I will publish (below) a very rare interview from my archive of Conchita about this topic of the Great Miracle date, some details are unknown yet to many but I can confirm the veracity of this interview, thank you.
SANTIAGO LANUS HAS PUBLISHED IN “PUEBLO DE MARIA” THE FOLLOWING INTERVIEW WITH FATHER MORELOS’S NIECE. Father Morelos was a mexican priest and close friend of Conchita. It is a very interesting interview and I want to underline the sentence of Conchita saying that she would be very old at the time of the miracle.
I tell you the story of Father Morelos’s dialogue with Conchita: *
My uncle went more than once to visit the seers a little while after the apparitions ended and before the denials.
In one of those visits, Father Morelos was in Conchita’s house, more precisely in Conchita’s kitchen and they were alone.
My uncle was very obsessive, somewhat capricious, but with a lot of faith.
And he told Conchita: “As a Priest I order you to tell me the date of the Miracle.
Conchita: “Father, I cannot, the Virgin forbade me.
Fr. Morelos: But I am a priest and you have to tell me.
Conchita: “Father, I cannot, only 8 days before I can say it.”
Fr. Morelos: “What if I guess?
Conchita: “Even so, I cannot tell you”
Fr. Morelos (a little annoyed) “Ah no Conchita! The Virgin never told you that if someone guessed it, you would not say yes.”
Conchita: “But it’s the same Father”
Fr. Morelos: “It is not the same, I am a priest, I know the Theology and I can assure you for the tranquility of your conscience that it is not a sin, that you would not be lacking in anything that the Virgin commanded you.
Conchita: “It’s okay, Father, tell me the date”
Fr. Morelos: “You have to help me a bit, you just have to say yes or no, that was not forbidden by the virgin.
Here began the questions from Father Morelos:
Is it during the first 3 months of the year? Conchita not so easy responded and Father Morelos replies: “as a priest I ask you.”
Conchita: “No, Father”
Fr. Morelos: “Is it in the first half of the year or in the second half?
Conchita: “In the first”
Fr. Morelos: “Is it a month of Jesus?”
Conchita: “No, Father”
Fr. Morelos: “Is it in a month of María?
Conchita: “No Father”
Fr. Morelos: “So it’s April, tell me if it will be in the month of April”
Conchita: “Yes, Father!”
Fr. Morelos: Now the day and the year are missing!
Fr. Morelos: is it between 7 and 17?
Conchita: “Yes, Father.”
Fr. Morelos: “Does Thursday fall on Holy Thursday?
Conchita: “I do not know Father if that Thursday will be Holy Thursday”.
Fr. Morelos: “Because if you talk about a Martyr of the Eucharist it could be Jesus”
Conchita: “The Saint is not Jesus”
Fr. Morelos: Have you seen that saint in the calendar?
Conchita “Yes, I’ve seen it, but I think it’s not Spanish because it has a very strange name that I’ve never heard before.
Fr. Morelos: “We go to the year, (and my uncle started saying year by year …)
Conchita: “Father, better go 10 in 10 because there is a lot of time left, let me see if I am not shy to announce it on the radio and on television * I will be very old! .
Fr. Morelos: “It’s after the year 2000?
Conchita: “Yes, father”
Fr. Morelos: Do not tell me anything anymore, doctors do not give me more than 70 years of life …
(About the following I’m not sure, I was an 11-year-old girl, 47 years have passed and the previous thing remained fixed in my mind, but about the following I have doubts, I think she also told him that the distance in time between the Warning and the Miracle was a week and another fact: that she had seen the Holy Martyr of the Eucharist on a different date than the Miracle, but I do not remember exactly).
(NOTE FROM PUEBLO DE MARIA: For example San Tarcisio has changed 3 times, from April as it was before to August 15, which is his feast now).
I have attended many talks of Garabandal and I have listened a lot, I do not know if I heard it from someone else who was told by Conchita or God veiled it to me a little bit so that Faith could work on me. God only knows…
Guadalupe Morelos (niece of Father Gustavo Morelos).
PS : The Niece of Father Morelos, the Great Garabandalist Priest and probably one of the closest Conchita’s friend, was interviewed in 2018 so last year, thank you.
So in conclusion and to end this topic of Speculation, this is what I think once and for all :
The Great Miracle of Garabandal
1. It is not during the Holy Week (checked)
2. It is not a Month of our Lady (May) (checked)
3. It is not a feast of our Lady or our Lord (checked)
4. The Eucharist Martyr is not Spanish so de facto cannot be St Hermenegild, not because I do not want but this is it and according to the seer herself, I cannot do better (checked)
5. The Month of the Great Miracle is APRIL (double checked)
6. Between the 07th and the 17th (double checked)
7. But not on April 13th (checked)
8. Description of the Eucharist Martyr given by Conchita to some French Friends in 1963 match Saint Tarcisius (checked)
9. Conchita will be very old but in life (checked)
10. The Warning and the Great Miracle are probably separated of 1 week not more, I double check this important detail with Loli’s sister with confirmation of it by Loli to her sister (double checked)
11. After an important Synod of the Church (double checked)
Now and this is my own speculation, to me April 12th of a futur year would be a good possibility based on some own speculative sources as to my own opinion and experience but already wrong in the past, by the way April 12th is exactly between the 07th and the 17th of that month, just saying, thank you.
Brilliant, thanks Aviso, this is precisely the level of detail, describing sources, their credence, and honesty in relaying to others the accuracy of what was said when recalling the detail of conversations overheard back in 1963. It is this level of information that is needed to accompany speculative ideas if we are to maintain the credibility of one of the most beautiful occasions of The Mother of God communing with Her children ever recorded.
I apologise if this detail is presented in other articles on the blog, I did in fact search but there is a lot to search through so, hand on heart, I gave up. If it is the case then it’s only a benefit that you have represented here again.
I guess there will always be nagging doubts, but one has to temper such with that which we know concerning the integrity of those who share their witness.
PS good to see you back in the front line and your health improving
By the way, some doubts are good, some bad, depends on the context. Where prudence is required is when we are tempted to take at face value statement uttered by those we want to trust most, especially when their views are aligned to our own conclusions.
Regarding this topic under discussion, it would be worthwhile to explore a little more, (for added content) questions raised by Anonymous.
We also have to be sensitive to the niece’s honesty in the caveat she places against her recollection, i.e. she ‘overheard’ a conversation. She was eleven so not too dissimilar in age to Conchita, yet we should still not shrink from considering just how attentive w
an 11 year old would be to another’s conversation, one they overheard. And of course we must also consider as the niece does herself, it was 47 years ago, so her recollection under interview whilst attempting at accuracy will still be paraphrased responses.
That said I concede that your conclusion Aviso is the right approach. There are salient facts of the overheard conversation that are most likely to be the one’s recalled 47 years hence, e.g. the month not being of Our Lord or Our Lady, the month being named April, and recalling some one of similar age actually saying she will very old when things happen.
I’m being inquisitive I know, but only with good intention at heart. The more one can demonstrate the veracity of any claims concerning private revelation, especially when involving statements from multiple independent sources, the more any future formal investigation will be aided. In addition, the more scrupulous the research, the more will this site be the ‘go to blog’ for accurate, objective news and commentary on Our Lady de Garabandal.
God bless you Aviso, need you more and more these days as we enter ever deeper in to the Tribulation of the Church.
PS all readers, polite reminder about the request coming from 4 Exorcists to pray and observe a strict fast and abstinence tomorrow the 6th of December, for their intentions.
Dear Aviso, Pete,
I agree that these are, in essence, the verifiable facts.
About Saint Tarcisius, at the current level of knowledge, the only way to have him into the equation is considering that this could be an hint to the 15th April as the Miracle day.
In fact: I could not find any evidence of the fact that Saint Tarcisius feast has been moved from April to August. While it is true that the Liturgical Calendar has been partially changed after the Vatican II Council, especially as regarded proto-martyrs with no clear historical evidence of their life and merits, Tarcisius (being a rather known and accepted figure) seems to be unaffected. When he was close to death, a Praetorian guard who had secretly become Christian, intervened. Quadratus, the guard, carried the dying boy back to the priest who consecrated the particles. He was immediately buried in the catacombs of St. Callistus and immediately venerated as a martyr. Pope Damasus had an inscription made for St. Tarcisius’ tomb that indicates that the young man died in the year 257. His feast day has been assigned since the beginning to August 15 in the Roman Martyrology, which also relates a beautiful oral tradition that has been handed down to us: The Blessed Sacrament was not to be found on St. Tarcisius’ body, either in his hands or among his clothing. It was like the Consecrated Hosts, which the young martyr defended with his life, had become flesh of his flesh, thereby forming with his body one single, immaculate Host as an offering to God.
In the seventh century his remains rested in the same grave as those of Pope Zephyrinus; according to Willpert they lay in the burial vault above ground (cella trichora) which was situated towards the west over the Catacomb of St. Callistus.
Blessed José Sánchez del Río was a young Mexican “Cristero” who was put to death by government officials because he refused to renounce his Catholic faith. He has been declared a martyr and was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI on November 20, 2005.-Life: He was born on March was nicknamed “Tarcisius.”
Pope Damasus also (+ 384 d.C.) wrote a poem about him and Card. Wiseman’s novel “Fabiola or the Church of the Catacombs”, first published in 1854 and then adapted to film three times reports details of Tarcisius life as well as the fact that his feast was on 15 August.
Very few proto-martyrs are as well documented as Tarcisius. Moreover, being celebrated on the same day of the Assumption, Saint Tarcisius could not be mentioned in any Liturgical Calendar but only on the “Martyrologium Romanum”, the official listing of all the known martyrs. Thus, if Conchita has ever mentioned him, she should have learnt about him not on a Calendar but elsewhere.
God bless! Let’s pray!
My Friends, Below more details about the Saint Tarcisius story, this unique information came from Father Laffineur Book, Star on the Mountain, one of the best book about Garabandal and from the Garabandal Pioneer “whose work uncovered the true importance of Garabandal for many. He allied with the Abbe Alfred Combe, father of the promotion in France. It is to these three men, Laffineur, Combe and Turner that the global Garabandal community owes many thanks. These priests of France faithfully collected the first impress and worked out the intellectual framework that sustained the cause through the very long night of doubt.”
About Saint Tarcisius, we can read in Father Laffineur’s book, page 121- 123 :
“Along the way we have met many prudent people. They tell us: “Take care, take care, to
not compromise yourselves needlessly.” On the other hand, since August of 1965, we
know more than others what is said in the Santander circles with reference to the nature
of the Miracle, of the impossibility or childishness concerning the latter.
All this leaves us indifferent; we smile at undistinguished ridicule as well as at well meaning timidity.
We are not afraid to defend our strenuous work of the past four years or the book which
offers past of our documentation to the public.
Before closing the matter, we wish to speak once more of the great Miracle to come.
Its nature? We have never been so indiscreet as to question Conchita on the underlying
nature of the Miracle, and providence has rewarded us for it. As she had been told in our
presence: “Padre Luis Andreu died of joy at having seen it, on the night of August 8,
We ventured to remark: “Oh, shall we also die on the night of that great day?”
The answer came in a flash: “No, God will give us the necessary strength to bear the
Since then, it has always seemed evident that if the coming Miracle were to be but a
preternatural stellar phenomenon in the sky of Garabandal, the question of dying of joy
from it could not reasonably be considered, even though it will be, as Conchita has
repeated a hundred times, incomparably greater than the miracle of the sun at Fatima on
the thirteenth of October, 1917.
The date? Let us commit ourselves further, in September of 1963, Conchita was dining
with us at the house next door to her own. As she seemed to be enjoying the dessert, we
were teasing her about the spirit of penance recommended by the first Message. She
laughed heartily. Suddenly, she was silent and withdrawn. Her face than brightened up
and with her hands almost joined together began:
“The Miracle will take place on the feast of a young martyr of the Eucharist. It was a
boy who was carrying the Holy Communion to persecuted Christians. His playmates,
on seeing him go by, tried to force him to join their games. When he refused, they
stoned him to death and ran away. A Christian soldier who was passing by carried his
“But that’s St. Tarcisius!,” one of the assistants couldn’t help exclaiming in a loud voice.
Conchita did not react and took more cake as though she had not heard anything.
After her departure, we were discussing the matter among ourselves. The oldest
member of the group came to this conclusion: “My impression is that Conchita saw the
spectacle during one of her trances, and it seems to me that the Blessed Virgin did not
mention the name of the martyr of whom she just spoke. In my opinion, she does not
know the name.”
On this subject of the “young” martyr of the Eucharist, we have been advised many
times to maintain the greatest reserve. “Speak of a martyr of the Eucharist, in general,
but do not stress the youth.”
Even supporting for one minute that on the subject of Garabandal we could trust human
caution, this would be asking us to betray our mission. We are witnesses of facts and we
testify to what we have seen, heard and touched.
On this occasion, as in others, only one thing matters to us, the words and gestures of
We can do nothing about it. If this young Christian, whose martyrdom Conchita
described, was St. Tarcisius of authentic history, the Miracle would take place on the
feast day of St. Tarcisius.
We are aware that in speaking in this manner, we are multiplying the difficulties on the
subject of the date of the Miracle. Conchita stated to us: “It will not be on a feast day of
the Virgin.” She also said to one of her companions: “On that day, Mass could be
celebrated in black,” which means: it will not be a “double feast day” according to the
language of the Roman rite, before the last liturgical reform. Now, in the Roman
martyrology, that of our occidental cities, the feast of St. Tarcisius is celebrate on August
15, feast of the Assumption of Our Lady.
The whole question comes back to finding out exact date of the death of the “young”
martyr, if he really is, as we have noted, the authentic historical one.
In the Catholic Church, the feast of a saint is usually celebrated on the day of his or her
It is the dies natalis, the birth in Heaven.
Did St. Tarcisius die on the fifteenth of August, as our martyrology states?
Let the historians furnish the answer. It is their mission and duty. We have full
confidence in them, since by definition, they are loyal and competent.
What we are to infer as to the date and nature of the great Miracle? Primarily, what
Conchita insisted that we write in the beginning of March, 1966: “Be certain that the
Warning will happen and that the Miracle will follow.”
Then, to quote a remark from our friend and collaborator, Dr. Apostolides: “It would not
be a prophecy if we knew ahead of time its exact meaning, and if we could guess the
right date of its happening.”
Since the nature and date of the Miracle are prophetic, let us wait with minds at ease,
without trying to tear away the veil which momentarily hides them from our view.
We cannot forget that the Miracle itself is directly related to the Message, and that it will
be the sign of signs, consecrating the authenticity of the Message which all must
accomplish immediately and spread throughout the universe as well.”
The book can be read in Pdf below :

By the way, In July 1965, Conchita transmitted to Father Laffineur in a letter, the words Our Lady addressed to the Priest, It says : “to Father Laffineur, that my son chose him to spread the message that I gave to the world, so as my love to all … I will always be with him and my Son, too “
We have the original letter from Conchita, those are the words of our Lady of the Mount Carmel via Conchita to Father Laffineur, so there is no better source than someone to whom our Lady herself talked about, de facto the St Tarcisius story from Laffineur (known to us for years) can be taken seriously and trustworthy, please be sure of it, enjoy, thank you.
That’s great Aviso thanks for this, it would have taken you some time to collate and type, but it was most definitely needed.
So all in all, we can only but remain in the good council of Father Laffineur’s statement ‘if this young Christian, whose martyrdom Conchita described, was St. Tarcisius the Miracle will take place on his feast day,’ which as he says brings some difficulty given the disparity between the date of his feast day and the months the Miracle is prophesied to ocurr.
As you say, best now just to leave the matter settled as it stands.
where did you check these details aviso like miralce not during holy week?? where who?
The text says that the feast of St. Tarcisius has changed THREE TIMES…from April to 15 August…
WHEN it has been changed?
WHY was it changed?
WHICH would have been the original alleged date in April, if any?
Without this key info, the passage is hardly credible.
God bless! Let’s pray!
A 35 kilograms (77 lbs) bell in the Stephansdom in Wien (Cathedral of Saint Stephen), Austria is called after Saint Tarcisius.
The images of a profanations of this Cathedral (2018) have just been published on youtube:
In the beautiful book Aviso drawn our attention on (“Star on the Mountain”: by the way the title, to me, it’s not casual…but that is another story…) there is a particular that I initially overlooked and just came back to my mind. Quote:
“She [Conchita] also said to one of her companions: ‘On that day, Mass could be celebrated in black,’ which means: it will not be a “double feast day” according to the language of the Roman rite, before the last liturgical reform.” (End quote).
Now, while we certainly do not doubt Conchita words, we should verify the author’s further comment, in the light of the rules about liturgical colors. In fact, before the VII Council black was used
Thus, it is absolutely untrue that black liturgical garments mean ‘no-double feast day’. (Sorry, only in Italian):
In the Roman Catholic Rite at the time of Conchita (as substantially also now) black, being the color of the deepest mourning (more than violet which is ordinarily used during Lent) was used on:
– 2nd November (All Souls’s Day);
– Mass in Commemoration of the dead (but not during the 40 hours devotion usually performed during the Easter Triduum: Holy Thursday, Friday and Saturday);
– Holy Friday;
– Requiem Mass (Funerals): https://www.catholic.com/encyclopedia/masses-of-requiem ;
In the Orthodox Church (RUSSIA) the black is used also during the Holy Week (usually excluding Holy Thursday) and Lent.
Note that Conchita said that Black COULD (not must) be used on that day, which means:
– 1. Either that the Catholic Church is celebrating a deep mourning (death/funeral of a pope emeritus? For the departure of a reigning ‘pope’ would most probably be used the red),
– Or that the Orthodox Church is celebrating the Holy Week at the time of the Miracle (as the ‘pope’ will probably be in Russia, Conchita might have had a vision of a celebration involving him and reported what she saw).
I wanted to share this with you, open to comments.
I wish all of you an holy Feast of the Immaculate Conception.
God bless. Let’s pray.
Further on the ‘black liturgical color’ issue.
If the pope will be in Russia, the Orthodox church could ALSO be in Lent (sorry for the imprecision).

Holy Feast! God bless.
Good morning, Warning.
I have been following this blog for some time and I see that no one knows for sure who is the Eucharistic martyr.
What if this martyr is a Chinese girl cited by Venerable Fulton Sheen as an inspiration for his love for the Eucharist?
Help me research more about this story.
A very interesting story.
As regards the possibility that the Chinese girl you mention is the saint martyr referred to by Conchita, I would cast some doubt as I do not see how Conchita could have known about her.
God bless. Let’s pray.
Saint Hermenegild feast day on a Holy Thursday is 2028…….I will be 73 years old….. someone will have to hold me up! Hopefully some of my children or grandchildren may come with me. I’m fit now at 65! So looking forward to the Miracle! I have been to Garabandal a few times, the last time was 2017, after the Fatima Anniversary, I never want to leave, such a peaceful special place. Humble old village. We talked to Maxima, Conchita’s aunt, I asked our interpreter how many grandchildren Conchita has…… Conchita has 19 grandchildren! I am planning to go back there in 2021 for the 60th Anniversary, hoping to be there on the 18th June, we like to go with a group tour. Anyone interested? Love to met some of you people……. we already have a lot in common!
Thank you for a great response! The article was written by Prof. Jacques Serre, who wrote the Garabandal books, I will quote down now what he also had written:- As to the nature of the future Miracle, (the greatest ever by Our Lord). Conchita partially lifted the veil. In August 1963, she revealed to Carmen Cavestany and Dr. Jean Caux;”we will see in the sky 12 stars,”. As this will also be the day of ‘the great ecclesiastical event” this information could hardly be something else than a relevant clue as to a future Holy Thursday? After Conchita herself announces the date of the Miracle, eight days before it is to occur, a mysterious event is to happen the very next day. Some kind of ecclesiastical caution might follow Conchita’s announcement, especially as that would have been preceded by an important announcement by Pope John Paul 2 (deceased, will probably be our Pope Francis) to preside and celebrate the long desired Unity of Christians”. Is the caution the Warning? Prof Jacques also put:- Padre Luis Andreu and the day of the future Miracle, a most remarkable clue. Thanks to Father Ramon Andreu, who in 1966 was preparing the publication and his own notes, of Conchita’s Diary, and was personally convinced what Garabandal would have to do with a future Good Friday. His brother Fr Luis Andreu will be found incorrupt the day after the Miracle. The day therefore be a Holy Thursday”. Prof.Jacques had put in his first book on Garabandal that the Miracle would not happen on a Holy Thursday, but, with more information had changed his mind. I am totally convinced the Saint Hermenegild is our Saint, but on a Holy Thursday, will be a long way off!
I picked up one of my old Garabandal International, dated April-June 2002, which I get from Australia,(I am a kiwi, New Zealander) very interesting: This is what it reads: “Conchita searched personally to find a liturgical clue about the future day of the Miracle. She gave some significant hints to individuals and the following one should be revealed. After reading a liturgical calendar for 1963, she read the corresponding date of the day of the Miracle, (except for the year which she already knew it would happen) the name and some concise note of a saint martyr of the Eucharist. She would eventually say he was not Spanish, was 22 years old when martyred, and that his Feastday was not celebrated in 1963, because it occurred during Holy Week.” Is it Saint Hermgild, 13th April, 2023.? He is half Spanish.
God bless you!
As discussed previously and extensively on this blog’s pages, Saint Hermgild (Patron of Spain but of Nordic origin) could very well fit Our Lady’s description). He actually was murdered when he was 22 because he refused to take the ‘communion’ from an heretic bishop. During the reign of a proto-heretical-pseudo pope (Francis) who will likely made invalid the Consecration sooner or later, this also would make much sense as we could also be called ourselves, in the future, to testimony or true Faith with similar acts in the very place where we will be.
Nonetheless someone’s on this blog, including Aviso, insists that the Saint concerned must be Saint Tarcisius (in which case nobody’s knows the real date of his martyrdom) and any speculation results impossible.
Consider in any case that, being patron of Spain, Saint Hermgild is solemnly venerated in Spain and, liturgically, his feast start on the First Vespers of 12 April, at sunset. As the miracle will happen at 20:30, we should add Thursday 12 April to the possible dates (12 is also exactly in-between the day-interval given by Conchita and she used the central symmetry also for the month).
This would also allow for other possibilities rather than 2023.
It is complicated: Our Lady has to keep it secret, for the demons also, thus we will never know for sure until Conchita warns us (hoping and praying that she will, as she almost certainly will do, as everyone of us has always his/her own free-will at any time).
God bless. Let’s pray!
Thank you for this information Barbara, I have been trying to get my hands on back copies of Garabandal International but to no avail. It is always reassuring when one’s reflections/articles are supported independently such as my views on the Eucharistic Saint being St. Hermenegild, who as Anonymous states, was 21/22 when suffering his martyrdom.
Also, in that copy of a personal letter written by Padre Pio addressed to the Commission of Heroldsbach appointed by the Vatican that testifies to the truth and reality of these revelations on the Three Days of Darkness given by Our Lord to Padre Pio , Jesus said:
“In the days of darkness, My elect shall not sleep, as did the disciples in the garden of olives. They, shall pray incessantly, and they shall not be disappointed in Me. I shall gather My elect. Hell will believe itself to be in possession of the entire earth, but I shall reclaim it!
Do you, perhaps, think that I would permit My Father to have such terrible chastisements come upon the world, if the world would turn from iniquity to justice? But because of My great love, these afflictions shall be permitted to come upon man. Although many shall curse Me, yet thousands of souls shall be saved through them. No human understanding can fathom the depth of My love!
Pray! Pray! I desire your prayers. My Dear Mother Mary, Saint Joseph, Saint Elizabeth, Saint Conrad, Saint Michael. Saint Peter, the Little Therese, Your Holy Angels, shall be your intercessors. Implore their aid! Be courageous soldiers of Christ! At the return of light, let everyone give thanks to the Holy Trinity for Their
protection! The devastation shall be very great! But I, Your God, will have purified the earth. I am with you. Have confidence!”
Thank you Maria for your comments, very thought provoking. You will note (in my rather lengthy comment today), that the 3 Days of Darkness prophecy actually pre-dates the statement proposed to have come also from Saint Padre Pio.
God bless all through Our Lady Of Mt Carmel.
In the last 8 months I have read Anne Catherine Emmerich’s story (2 volumes) and am now almost finished ‘Ciudad de Dios’ (4 volumes).
The latter is the story of Our Lady’s life on this planet,(‘Mother Earth’ as She, Our Lady, called it at one point (& that shocked me given the recent Amazon Synod debacle in Rome)).
Then again Satan & his cohorts are very practiced at corrupting Heaven’s terms of endearment isn’t he/aren’t they?
Understandable as the devil is incapable of creating anything tangible, (or original for that matter), I guess. Dissent, illusions, pride and anything anti virtue etc is his forte!
The latter volumes (Cudad de Dios) record Our Lady’s disappointments of the contemporary clergys’ failure to appreciate the sacrifice of her divine Son during the author’s time of writing!
Remember the time those writings were put together!
Fast forward 400 years and the clergy of today should take note of Our Lady’s critique of their behaviour and lack of respect for her Son, The Holy Eucharist, the Creator and Redeemer.
If it was bad back then what term could apply to it today? The author, then, found it difficult to record in ‘mortal’ terms and understanding what was revealed to her (Sister Mary Of Agreda). If so then, what now?
So very soon we will see the Warning, followed by the Miracle.
Considering this I am reminded how Moses delivered the Ten Commandments to the Jews of old and within no time they were adoring a golden calve they had made from their own hands!
And then they crucified their Messias and have ever since, particularly via their Pharisees, using freemasonry, continued to treat their Saviour, with contempt and denial!
But Our Lord and His Blessed Mother never stop loving them, praying for them and begging that they be included in the chosen!
Sadly I believe there will be a repeat of history here.
After the Warning and Miracle we will see mortals change their lives to honour their creator and Redeemer.
After a short while, mirroring the Jews, lead from captivity by Moses and Aaron, the pride and greed sowen, yet again by satan & co, will lead many astray and the 3 days of darkness will follow.
That event will REALLY straighten out mankind (2038, I believe but that is just me!!!) and following that the chosen will experience many years of peace under the reign of Our Lord and Our Lady.
Some here will be part of that experience but most (I hope) will be with Our Lady and The Holy Trinity in heaven.
Read Paul to the Corinthians – no problem with prophesy as the Wise Men from the East at the first Christmas can no doubt attest!
God bless and Happy and Holy Christmas to all.
The way that I have interprested “put on ashes”, I made a decision to dress in only grey, and or black (with white or cream), all summer long. (It is summer where I live.) In other words, I am putting on the clothes of mourning. It feels appropriate because I feel as though I have seen “the abomination that makes desolate” standing in the Holy place.Therefore I feel desolate, therefore it feels normal to shun colourful clothing, and dress in very sonber colours, colours assiocaited with grief. I have even gone as far as to give away some garments and buy new grey garments. (second hand) Here, it is the time of year women like to put on bright colours. And of course coming up to Chrstmas , a festive time, normally. But not now, for us who can recognise what has happened, what is happening.
A most appropriate response to Our lady’s request and not so overt as to draw attention to one’s self. Your comment is of a sombre tone and reflective of how many I am sure are feeling at this time. There is indeed a sadness in our hearts, very gentle, but very perceptible, sometimes even showing as a few tears during prayer. But you know, there is also all the while a sense of peace that is very deep, almost like a whisper, just enough to know that we are indeed within the close embrace of Our Beautiful And Most Chaste Mother.
Keep praying formally and informally through the day, try always to imagine Our Lord willing you on and visualise His loving presence watching over you. Know too, you will draw great comfort if you engage in prayer and conversation with your Guardian Angel every time you begin and end your daily prayers. Our Guardian is our life long companion, always at our side, always interceding and will be our sure friend and embassador on that day when we are to give an account of our lives.
You all surely know and do this already, but sometimes it can be a little helpful to hear it once again from someone else who is walking the same path as and with you.
You are right saying that feels like “the abomination that makes desolate” standing in the Holy place, and that made me make the link with Hanuka which in 2019 happens to start on Dec 22 – just 3 days before Christmas. Many theologians expect the abomination to be again at the Temple in Jerusalem, but now was at the Temple at ST Peter. To think about this, Mother Angelica was inspired to a visit in Colombia in 1995, on this trip. In Bogotá, a Salesian priest – Father Juan Pablo Rodriguez – brought Mother and the nuns to the Sanctuary of the Divine Infant Jesus to attend Mass. After Mass, Father Juan Pablo took them into a small Shrine which housed the miraculous statue of the Child Jesus.
Mother Angelica stood praying at the side of the statue when suddenly the miraculous image came alive and turned towards her. Then the Child Jesus spoke with the voice of a young boy: “Build Me a Temple and I will help those who help you.” She was wandering why He said Temple, then she read at St. Peter Basilica in Rome: “This Temple was built on the day they inaugurated.” Thus began a great adventure that would eventually result in the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament, a Temple dedicated to the Divine Child Jesus, a place of refuge for all. Few days ago I read on Mystical Post :
Padre Pio and the Three Days of Darkness…”Keep your windows well covered and Do not look out”This resembles what jesus said in Mattew 24:21 : Once this “abomination of desolation” occurs, “then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be” November 25, 2019From translation of a copy of a personal letter written by Padre Pio addressed to the Commission of Heroldsbach appointed by the Vatican that testifies to the truth and reality of these revelations on the Three Days of Darkness given by Our Lord to Padre Pio, a Capuchin priest who bore the stigmata.JANUARY 28, 1950
Keep your windows well covered. Do not look out. Light a blessed candle, which will suffice for many days. Pray the rosary. Read spiritual books. Make acts of Spiritual Communion, also acts of love, which are so pleasing to Us. Pray with outstretched arms, or prostrate on the ground, in order that many souls may be saved. Do not go outside the house. Provide yourself with sufficient food. The powers of nature shall be moved and a rain of fire shall make people tremble with fear. Have courage! I am in the midst of you.FEBRUARY 7, 1950
Take care of the animals during these days. I am the Creator and Preserver of all animals as well as man. I shall give you a Few signs beforehand, at which time you should place more food before them. I will preserve the property of the elect, including the animals, for they shall be in need of sustenance afterwards as well. Let no one go across the yard, even to feed the animals–he who steps outside will perish! Cover your windows carefully. My elect shall not see My wrath. Have confidence in Me, and I will be your protection. Your confidence obliges Me to come to your aid.
The hour of My coming is near! But I will show mercy. A most dreadful punishment will bear witness to the times. My angels, who are to be the executioners of this work, are ready with their pointed swords! They will take special care to annihilate all those who mocked Me and would not believe in My revelations.Hurricanes of fire will pour forth from the clouds and spread over the entire earth! Storms, bad weather, thunderbolts and earthquakes will cover the earth for two days. An uninterrupted rain of fire will take place! It will begin during a very cold night. All this is to prove that God is the Master of Creation. Those who hope in Me, and believe in my words, have nothing to fear because I will not forsake them, nor those who spread My message. No harm will come to those who are in the state of grace and who seek My mother’s protection.
That you may be prepared for these visitations, I will give you the following signs and instructions: The night will be very cold. The wind will roar. After a time, thunderbolts will be heard. Lock all the doors and windows. Talk to no one outside the house. Kneel down before a crucifix, be sorry for your sins, and beg My Mother’s protection. Do not look during the earthquake, because the anger of God is holy! Jesus does not want us to behold the anger of God, because God’s anger must be contemplated with fear and trembling.
Those who disregard this advice will be killed instantly. The wind will carry with it poisonous gases which will be diffused over the entire earth. Those who suffer and die innocently will be martyrs and they will be with Me in My Kingdom.Satan will triumph! But after three nights, the earthquake and fire will cease. On the following day the sun will shine again. angels will descend from Heaven and will spread the spirit of peace over the earth. A feeling of immeasurable gratitude will take possession of those who survive this most terrible ordeal…I, your God, will have PURIFIED THE EARTH.’ – Padre Pio (exactly what the WARNING OF GARABADAL SAYS!)’At the last, those who survive will at every chance newly proclaim God and His glory and they will serve Him as when the world was not so perverted.’ – fatima-the impending punishment-with which God has visited the earth since creation.IN three nights, the earthquakes and fire will cease. on the following day the sun will shine again, and will be SPRINGTIME!!
Dearest Pete, Thank you for this awesome information! Wow……seems an angel always appears before Our Blessed Mother comes to us. Such a simple message given but also profound. I agree with Aviso (happy he is well now). I BELIEVE IT! It is the same message as Fatima, Garabandal and Akita, she asks for penance and to pray the rosary for ourselves and others.
I would be honored to meet you one day dear Pete. I am humbled every time I read your words. God’s Grace is in you, it is very evident.
You asked a question about the ashes. That was exactly my own question when I first read that message. Was the request to put on ashes, just symbolic? For me, I think yes. Was it literal? I think yes, too. I not only want to say the Penitential Rosary, I want a penitential heart with a sincere desire to fully live out God’s will. Who knows how to do God’s Will better then Our Blessed Mother?
On Ash Wednesday each year I never fear wearing my ashes in public. Even tho my ashes always look like a check mark more then a cross! If someone so kindly calls attention to the dirt on my forehead, I just say it’s a symbol of my repentance to God. And that Catholics physically wear those ashes at the start of Lent to remind us that one day, we literally will die—but through Christ, we are invited into eternal life!
If the Queen Of Heaven has called for ashes then a cross made from ashes I will humbly wear on my forehead. Esther called her people to repentance (Purim). They listened and were saved.
May God Bless you and watch over you and yours dear Pete and Aviso! Mary H
Thank you Mary H for your positive comments, I am indeed humbled by your sentiments. Who knows perhaps one day we, along with the many Friends of Garabandal that have and do comment here, will meet in person if God wills it. As to the ashes, I have gone with symbolic for now, which is OK when taken in to context with Scripture which, says let your hearts be broken not your garments torn and in another place, God sees all that is done in secret. If any wish to wear ashes, and I would if I had them, I suggest placing them in a cross on one’s heart so all is hidden beneath clothes and thus, this penitential act is not displayed before men but remains known only between you, God, Our Lady, your Guardian Angel and perhaps also your spouse.
Thank you for your kindness and may God bless you always
Ahhhh…..That is so perfect! Thank you dearest Pete! My husband is in agreement, concealed, close to our hearts!
Hopefully, we will all meet at Garabandal one day! It would be nice to personally thank our wonderful Aviso, too!
May Our Good Lord Bless you and yours! Mary H.
I follow Amazon synod and I do not feel a “very deep sense of unease, even sadness.” Amazon synod, as well as all other holy synods of the Church are urgently needed. I feel sadness though when the apparitions of Our Lady are being used for attacking the Church and the Pope (and I do not assume you are doing it here). That is not what the seers show. You quote Our Lady speaking to Sr Agnes Sasagawa of the importance of obedience to bishop Ito.
But the reason I comment is rather Sr Agnes’ recent words. She said of the 30 years since the last apparition of the angel…what happened 30 years ago? It is all over the news these days, the Berlin Wall fell, the communism fell! (and It is not that USA won the Cold war, it is that the Soviet block decided to stop it before the start of the real war in first place). That is the important message of Sr Agnes. God gave us those 30 years of repentance. As Jesus told Medjugorje seers in 1985, He will give His peace to the world but later will ask the world how it used it. Coupled with other messages, such as Vicka’s words that we are already in the second half time to the secrets in 2001. I think we are months or even weeks before the start of the secrets. And the first secret is not necessarily the Great Warning, it may or may not be the start of the events, since Medjugorje is newer apparition and therefore more events and pre-warnings could happen (similarly, Fatima as an older apparition doesn’t mention the Great Warning).
Alex, thank you for your comment. I believe we are obliged by the Grace of our Baptism to be always prudent in the discerning of events within and without the Church and yes even of those things that are pronounced by our beloved Priests, Bishops and Popes. We must always be on our guard against Satan and be wise to his ability to subtly deceive. He does not tempt us to do that which we know comprehensively to be evil in origin and evil in end, he tempts us to what we want to be a ‘good,’ for what Christian indeed would allow themselves to be so fooled as to commit evil purely for evil’s sake?
I do hold that the consecration of the World to the Immaculate Heart did play a part for good, how could it not, but it was not the Consecration willed by Heaven which is still outstanding. I am aware of the efforts of Pope St JPII in brokering a de-escalation in nuclear proliferation, that as a result, has so far prevented a nuclear conflagration (it is understood he shared something of the 3rd Secret of Fatima with World leaders of the time).
It would be naive to think that the nihilism of Communism has gone, it is still there and other than in China and some other counties is there in every country under a different name.
As for obedience. I am sure you are not oblivious to the clear confusion that is spreading across the Church at every level, you cannot be saying that devout souls should follow or subscribe to heterodoxy, you cannot possibly think the sins of the flesh are the least serious, or that irregular relationships are not adulterous or even same sex relationships are grace filled and thereby acceptable before God (because, God made them that way and ‘who am I to judge?’) Surely you don’t subscribe to the notion that a multiplicity of religions, most of which are pagan and idolatrous or hateful toward Christianity are willed by God and by implication offer paths to salvation. I am sure given what you have shared you don’t believe for one minute that Jesus committed a sin of disobedience when he went missing or that Mary when witnessing the crucifixion of Her Beloved Son thought ‘God you have deceived me!’
Or perhaps you do?
I ask you this because all of which I just listed has come from Pope Francis either directly or by implication either as a consequence of his words or by his erroneous actions. Don’t forget he is known to support inter-communion between Christian faiths especially if spouses are of a different denomination, in this he condones that which is a clear unequivocal sacrilege of the Sacred Species. Are we then to be obedient to this? No surely not? We are to be obedient to those who teach the millennial truths of our Faith unsullied by contradiction and confusion no matter how difficult they may make our lives in this modern godless world of death, infanticide, hedonism, paganism and sexual depravity.
What we are witness to is 30 years of the World not responding to the urgent messages of our Lady; of the Church not responding to the messages of our Lady; of the Church abandoning its obligation to always teach right and wrong, to help young people abstain, to promote sacramental marriage and speak out against the evils of our time, clearly and loudly. What we see is the prophesies coming to pass with an alarming rate because of inaction. Its escalating because of the rush of too many ecclesiastics to seek harmony with the World in the blind belief that in being so, Christianity will become attractive to the populations of the World. This is not Our Lords version, or His Way, His is the way of suffering, of rejection, abstinence, of holiness purity and chastity. What we are witness to is the final touches of the great artist (Satan), a man made version of Church, painted with oils from the secret sect, Communism, Luther, Protestantism, Secularism and now even possibly with pigments of paganism using the soiled colors of environmentalism disguised as Franciscanism.
The very latest message of Akita (Update 3 on this Blog) is a warning that we are bringing upon our selves the full fury of Satan in a manor of a terrible tribulation that will not cease until The Garabandal Warning. Only after the Miracle and Sign will there be a time of peace you speak of, but for how long, who knows. For after that time is the time of the Anti-Christ and we know his downfall will only come to pass as a direct consequence of the Second Coming of Our King and Savior.
As for Medjugorje, if this event has lead you closer to God and Our Blessed Mother and a more devout and holy life praised be God. As for myself I have serious reservations and hope that if proved not to be of Heaven you will hold dear to what you have received and remain steadfast in your faith.
I am with you & thanks again for your efforts.
FYI I went to the YouTube link you gave re Akita and felt the truth of it all.
Loved the humility of all involved especially Sister & her Bishop.
Japan is very blest to have them.
At 57mins50seconds in I noticed what appeared a hole and a small line of blood in the right hand of Our Lady’s statue.
It was only there for a couple of seconds!
Have you or others seen that?
Maybe it’s an aberration! If not I have no idea of it’s meaning but perhaps others do.
God bless Sister & her supports and Akita & Japan, so chosen by Our Blessed Mother.
Keep up the good work.
You are right there is a red mark on the right hand of the Statue that disappears as if edited. Not sure what to make of it. I’ll ask some questions.
Pete, thanks for the very long answer that has so many things in it enough for a separate post, that I would not try to respond. What made me write in this comment section in first place was the connection between Akita message and the time period of 30 years, as I explained before. And now the update “I feel the time is near” to the fulfillment of the message that originally says “fire will fall from the sky”. Again I do not see any connection with the reform of the Church that pope Francis is doing as continuation of other popes before him, three of whom are saints now, St John Paul II, St Paul VI and St John XXIII. Rather, I see the Akita message as urgent appeal for preserving the world peace. Without entering into politics, the impeachment hearings in the US these days provided enough insider info of not so rosy relations with Russia behind the curtain of good words on official meetings. And I am sure the situation is not better in the other hot spots such as Syria/Iran or China/North Korea. Pope Francis may not be a saint but we are not in impeachment process against him and could never be in a such in the Catholic Church. I also believe St Malachi’s prophecy that could be the last pope, whatever that could mean. With that, I think I wrapped up my comments. Wish the garabandalnews site to continue spreading the Garabandal message!
Thanks Alex. I would assume many share your concern, as do I regarding global politics which, we pray will not result in a nuclear war. It is one reason why I wanted to share here the Akita updates and links explaining the liturgy of the Penitant Rosary and its source/endorsement by Our Lord. Everyone who is now familiar with these recent events either via this blog or anywhere else across Catholic media and takes them seriously cannot in good conscience omit saying the Penitant Rosary in the mandated way, at least once a week.
If I may suggest, we cannot divorce the circumstances of the Church from the circumstances of global politics. In fact the circumstances of the Church proceed the circumstances of the global politics. In other words, if the Light of Truth is dimmed in the Church by its Shepherds and the practice and belief of the Baptised, then the Light ceases to shine with necessary brilliance upon the hearts and minds of leaders and society at large. We end up exactly where we are now.
All Apparitions state ‘converson’ as the prerequisite for world peace.
I encourage you and all to comment and discuss, even if views are not so aligned one with another. Debate can bring clarity and none of us have a monopoly on right interpretation. I simply ask that in commenting we remain within the requested boundaries of Aviso’s blog. Therefore no promotional speeches for Medjugorje, Pope Francis, apostate clergy or web sites pushing the same messages
If you have not yet been notified, 2 updates have been provided on the new Akita message, one on the authenticity of the source and a second on more news from the WQPH radio station. I have also provided a link that explains how to recite a Penitent (Penitential) Rosary. If you have not done this before, try it, you’ll soon discover why it is ‘penitential.’
An enlightening short talk about the Warning by Fr. James Blount, a respected Exorcist of the RRC
Thanks. A very ‘enlightening’ video.
Please note (min. 1:49-1:59): “suddenly become darker than night…then two heavenly bodies will collide”…This can only be explained with a huge heavenly body swiftly entering our solar system (otherwìse this cannot be seen). I tried several time to warn about this but you fiercely (and wrongly) opposed that.
Please also be careful: some seers (e.g. “Luz de Maria”) mentioned (min. 0:58) are likely false ones.
God bless. Let’s pray!
By the way, Fr Blount sJ is deeply involved in a very beautiful devotion:
Very useful to ‘blind’ Our Morher’s (and thus our) Enemy…
God bless! Let’s pray!
Thank you Anonymous (132) for your posts, very much appreciated as always.
My view that the Warning is not two comets colliding, that it is not in any way related to a natural event, or initiated by a natural event, has not changed nor can it. My rational as stated and evidence several times previously, is that the Garabandal Seers have qualified first-hand the Warning is not natural event, explainable by science and will be ‘like’ comets colliding in terms of light and noise. To think or say otherwise is to contradict the primary source. What we do have is a lot of information and opinions awash across lots of blogs and web sites, records of visionaries approved, pending and unapproved, speaking of similar events occurring between now and the End of Time. What we can be sure of, is that it’s mostly confusing as to what will occur, in what sequence, when and durations between events.
Below points 1 to 3 are extracts from seers approved or pending approval that were listed on the video, but in short, my reflections lead me to consider in summary events follow thus.
1. The time of error foreshadowing The Warning, is happening now and much worse to follow
a. Elizabeth Kindlemann, Budapest, Hungary (1913-1985)
2. The Warning, occurring on or near the dates I have suggested in other articles and more recently supported by an article referenced in a recent post this week from Barbara
a. St. Edmond Campion (1540-1581)
b. Our Lady of Heede – Germany (1937-1940)
c. Maria Esperanza (1928-2004)
d. Elizabeth Kindlemann, Budapest, Hungary (1913-1985)
3. A period (for a none determinate duration) of a return to the True Faith by all Nations, a consequence of The Warning, Miracle and Permanent Sign. Thereafter the period leading to the reign of Anti-Christ, The Chastisement and the Second Coming of our Lord, the timing of which is hidden and unknowable.
a. St Hildegard (1098-1179)
b. Blessed Anna Maria Taigi (1769-1837)
c. Sr Faustina Paragraph 83 of her Diary (1905-1938
d. Chastisement of Garabandal, Akita, St Hildegard etc?
St. Hildegard (1098-1179) End Times?
“After the birth of Antichrist heretics will preach their false doctrines undisturbed, resulting in Christians having doubts about their holy Catholic faith.” The son of perdition (the Antichrist), who will reign very few of times, will come at the end day of the duration of the world, at the times corresponding to the moment just before the sun disappears from the horizon…
A component of The Chastisement? “The Comet by its tremendous pressure, will force much out of the ocean and flood many countries, causing much want and many plagues. All coastal cities will be fearful and many of them will be destroyed by tidal waves, and most living creatures will be killed and even those who escape will die from a horrible disease. For in none of these cities does a person live according to the laws of God.”
St. Edmond Campion (1540-1581) The Warning?
“No other day was in my mind, I protest, than that wherein it should please God to make a restitution of faith and religion. Whereupon, as in every pulpit every Protestant doth, I pronounced a great day, not wherein any temporal potentate should minister, but wherein the terrible Judge should REVEAL ALL MEN’S CONSCIENCES and try every man of each kind of religion. This is the day of change this, is the great day which I threatened.” – From ‘Edmund Campion a Life’ by Evelyn Waugh
Blessed Anna Maria Taigi (1769-1837) Three Days of Darkness, a chastisement post Garabandal Miracle leading up to the period of Anti-Christ?
“God will send two punishments: one will be in the form of wars, revolutions and other evils; it shall originate on earth. The other will be sent from Heaven. There shall come over the whole earth an intense darkness lasting three days and three nights. Nothing can be seen, and the air will be laden with pestilence which will claim mainly, but not only, the enemies of religion. It will be impossible to use any man-made lighting during this darkness, except blessed candles. He, who out of curiosity, opens his window to look out, or leaves his home, will fall dead on the spot. During these three days, people should remain in their homes, pray the Rosary and beg God for mercy.”
“On this terrible occasion so many of these wicked men, enemies of His Church, and of their God, shall be killed by this divine scourge, that their corpses around Rome will be as numerous as the fishes, which a recent inundation of the Tiber had carried into the city. All the enemies of the Church, secret as well as known, will perish over the whole earth during that universal darkness, with the exception of some few, whom God will soon after convert. The air shall be infested by demons, who will appear under all sorts of hideous forms.
“After the three days of darkness, Saints Peter and Paul, having come down from heaven, will preach throughout the world and designate a new Pope. A great light will flash from their bodies and settle upon the cardinal, the future pontiff. Then Christianity will spread throughout the world. Whole nations will join the Church shortly before the reign of the Antichrist. These conversions will be amazing. Those who survive shall have to conduct themselves well. There shall be innumerable conversions of heretics, who will return to the bosom of the Church; all will note the edifying conduct of their lives, as well as that of other Catholics. Russia, England and China will come into the Church.
Shortly after the 3 days of darkness “France will fall into frightful anarchy. The French people shall have a desperate civil war, in which old men themselves will take up arms. The political parties having exhausted their blood and their rage, without being able to arrive at any satisfactory understanding, shall at the last extremity agree by common consent to have recourse to the Holy See. Then the Pope shall send France a special legate, in order that he may examine the state of affairs and the dispositions of the people. In consequence of the information received, His Holiness himself shall nominate a most Christian king for the government of France…
“Religion shall be persecuted, and priests massacred Churches shall be closed, but only for a short time. The Holy Father shall be obliged to leave Rome.”
Sr Faustina Paragraph 83 of her Diary (1905-1938): During the reign of Anti-Christ and the end or toward the end of the calamitous events of The Chastisement leading up to the dethronement of the Man of Perdition?
Write this: before I come as the Just Judge, I am coming first as the King of Mercy. Before the day of justice arrives, there will be given to people a sign in the heavens of this sort: All light in the heavens will be extinguished, and there will be great darkness over the whole earth. Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky, and from the openings where the hands and the feet of the Saviour were nailed will come forth great lights which will light up the earth for a period of time. This will take place shortly before the last day.
Our Lady of Heede – Germany (1937-1940) and Our Lord of Heede (1950-1945) The Warning?
Over the course of what was to be a total of 100 apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary to a total of four girls (Anna Schulte, sisters Maria and Greta Ganseforth, and Susanna Bruns), under the title of Queen of the Universe, the visionaries were entrusted with prophecies, solemn messages, and secrets, including one for the Pope. Regarding one secret, however, Our Lady showed the Seers visions of future tribulations, and warned them that a serious event, called a “Minor Judgement”, was in store for mankind in the near future.
From 1945 onwards Greta Ganseforth began to have visions of Our Lord, who invited her specifically to become a Victim Soul for the conversion of hardened sinners Greta agreed, Our Lord gave her the Stigmata. Thus, as Victim and Stigmatist, Greta shared in the Passion of the Christ as so many had done in the centuries before her, and, upon orders from her spiritual director, kept a diary of her mystical events.
Particularly noteworthy of these latter events, on one occasion, while speaking about the “Minor Judgement”, Jesus said solemnly to Greta: “For those who are not in the State of Grace (when the Minor Judgment happens) it will be FRIGHTFUL.”
Devotion of both Our Lady and Our Lord at Heede was approved by the Bishop of Osnabruck, and this approbation has been ratified with each successive Bishop to this day. The Bishops have not yet published a formal ruling declaring the events to be supernatural, Divine in origin, and worthy of belief, though their permissions are imply approval.
Maria Esperanza (1928-2004) The Warning?
Bishop Pio Bello’s pastoral letter on November 21, 1987 declaring that the Betania apparitions not only conform with Scripture and Church teachings, but also “are authentic, they are supernatural, and they are of a divine source.”
Maria was told by the Virgin that we are living the “hour of decision for humanity.” The world will face a “very serious moment” soon. “A great moment is approaching,” the Virgin told Esperanza, “A great day of light!” Maria Esperanza does not foresee the end of the world. She sees a coming purification. “The moment has arrived in which mankind must awaken”, says Esperanza, “we must awaken to the love of God. In the coming years a new light from heaven will illuminate hearts, but before it does there will be hardship”. She foresees war, societal problems, and natural disasters. But she also sees a cleansing that will restore humankind.
However, it seems that much of what will happen depends on mankind’s reaction (or lack of reaction) to the events that God disposes. In other words, a portion of what is to come is “conditional” based on humanities reaction to the events that God will put into place. “Difficult times will arrive, but in the end, it will make us better people” says Esperanza
Elizabeth Kindlemann, Budapest, Hungary (1913-1985) The Warning and the time of error foreshadowing the Warning?
The Flame of Love messages received the approval Cardinal, Péter Erdö, primate of Hungary (also president of the Council of Episcopal Conference in Europe) and her local ordinary.
Elizabeth said she was told by the Lord, that jolts will affect the Earth that will “give rise to a new world by the power of faith.” The earth will be renewed, “for never has such a flow of grace ever been given since the Word became Flesh.” The Seers stated that this renewing of the world will take place through the imploring force of the Virgin but will be tested by suffering.
Elizabeth, says she was told that “Know the earth is like nature before a storm,”. The ‘storm’ that is coming was then likened (by Our Lady) “to a volcano that suddenly awakes spewing choking smoke that, smothers, kills, blinds, its sulphur wants only to blemish human souls created in the image of God.” Know that hope prevails, for Mary told Elizabeth that Her Flame of Love is about to ignite, blinding Satan and freeing mankind from the “smoking lava” of hatred. There will be persecution and the persecutors, warned Mary, will be the “cowards” who “fear for their well-being, those who know everything better than others.”
“The elect souls will have to fight the Prince of Darkness,” Mary intoned. “It will be a frightening storm — no, not a storm, but a hurricane devastating everything! He even wants to destroy the faith and confidence of the elect. I will always be beside you in the storm that is now brewing. I am your mother. I can help you and I want to! You will see everywhere the light of my Flame of Love sprouting out like a flash of lightning illuminating Heaven and earth, and with which I will inflame even the dark and languid souls! But what sorrow it is for me to have to watch so many of my children throw themselves in hell!”
“My children,” Mary concluded, “the Arm of my Divine Son is ready to strike. I can barely hold it back. Help me! If you invoke my Flame of Love, we can save the world together.”
Her voice, said Elizabeth, was “full of majesty, power, and firmness” when she spoke of coming events. “I cannot convey with words the inexpressible astonishment and the wonder with which I heard that. After a few minutes of silence, she spoke in quite another tone, her usual and maternal tone of soft tenderness: ‘Fear not, have confidence in my power as a mother.'”
Pedro Regis Our Lady, Queen of Peace, Brazil,
No news that I am aware of for or against these alleged apparitions and messages by the Church, I am happy to hear from anyone who knows otherwise.
Other than St. Hildegard, other references to a Comet, its effect and appearance in the solar system as if we had 2 Suns come from false prophets such as those below. Note however I am not opposed to the notion of an event as in St Hildegard’s prophesy that when the Comet comes it will glow and create the appearance of there being two suns above the Earth
John Leary – No Church Approval. a self-proclaimed prophet who is utterly false
Maria Divine Mercy – Archbishop Diarmuid Martin (Archdiocese of Dublin wishes to state that these messages and alleged visions have no ecclesiastical approval and many of the texts are in contradiction with Catholic theology. These messages should not be promoted or made use of within Catholic Church associations.
Our Lady of Emmitsburg: 2001 an investigation was held determining that the visions and miracles associated with the apparition are not supernatural. In 2008 the Archdiocese issued a statement discouraging Catholics from any involvement with the apparition.
God bless you and your family!
Many thanks for your answer: interesting, rich, rigorous and well written (as usual). It is not my aim to start a dialectic dissertation on this (and i will not, be sure).
I simply would like to point out a few circumstances:
1. the warning could be, at the same time, an interior experience marked with an exterior powerful manifestation (an impressive sign in the sky). Conchita herself has clearly suggested this in more than an occasion…
2. a huge heavenly body crossing our solar system could serve the purpose for an exterior sign very well and would also determine, under certain circumstances, the famous three days of darkness prophesied by several true mystics, included Saint Pio da Pietralcina and Anna Maria Taigi, just to mention two reported on this precious blog. It could also produce the plagues mentioned in Revelation (the Chastisements).
Please do not misunderstand me: I am not referring to the Z. Sitchin-like Nibiru nonsenses, with or without the ‘Annunaki’ side dish. I am not so naif: that is only masonic garbage intentionally put forward with disinformation goals. Maytreia and other fantasies proposed by some otherwise interesting catholic websites as ‘Tradcatknights’ are also out of question.
Personally I am more keen to believe in more frequent passages of the celestial bodie(s), compatible with many of the events described in the Holy Scriptures. The best author with this regards is, to me, Gill Broussard:
If you are interested in the topic, I would suggest you to have a look at it, but it is not necessary for the Faith.
You might also ask yourself why I insist so much. It is very simple:
1. I happen to KNOW (by direct evidence and experience) that many World powers (including the Vatican!) are currently monitoring the approach of these celestial bodies…they are actually coming, even if their effective orbits cannot be calculated or foreseen because of their erratic comet-like trajectories…
2. Their potential of destruction (if God does not prevent it!!!) is immense
3. At a certain point in time, probably not very far from now, we should be ready to this events not only spiritually (we should always be ready spiritually!) but, if possible, also materially, in order to increase our probability of surviving…
But in the end, the Immaculate Hearth of Mary will triumph! That is certain.
As genuine believers in God, we should not fear.
God bless! Let’s pray!
Just a caveat should someone have a look at Gill Broussard’s work.
Gill is a Protestant…his interpretation of future events involves some typically Protestant errors (as the false idea of the ‘Rapture’). As many American Protestants he also substantially overestimates the role of the Jewish people in the end-times salvation events. But, apart from that, he has done a very good and hard job in collecting and connecting all available archeological, biblical and amateur astronomic evidence.
God bless! Let’s pray!
Thank you for your response, and blessing, the same of course to you and yours. There is much we do agree on, most importantly that we are at/approaching significant and critical events in the history of Salvation, the level of suffering attributed to which, will only be mitigated by a multitude obediently responding to Heaven’s call.
If you feel secure in sharing more details concerning that which you know to be, please feel free to contact me directly via email email@example.com, I will then if appropriate provide you with my personal contact information.
Kind regards and God bless
Many thanks, Pete.
Very kind of you.
God bless. Let’s pray!
Dear Fr Chris and All
Earlier today I was sharing something of the Garabandal story with a couple of my work colleagues and have recently engaged in a Twitter conversation and email correspondence with a devout son of the Church on the theme of Communism and its prophesied impact on the RCC.
Now, in this moment of midnight quiet when all are asleep, I find my self reflecting on the day and at the PC writing on this subject of Communism without having set out to do so. And what do I find as a result, I see on the page ideas and images once circulating as ethereal thoughts and never fully articulated become words and phrases laid out on the page. All accomplished in but a moment driven as if by a force exorcising my hitherto resistance to look in the mirror and fully face what I truly think in this hour of ‘expectations’ and of those who are its architects. I shudder at this outcome, for such thoughts can have consequences on one’s soul and as much as I don’t want these thoughts to be true I can no longer conceive of a circumstance of them not being true.
And so I bear my soul before you all and seek your council. Fr Chris if you come across this post and the same applies to any of your brother Priests, please offer direction on how one should proceed when reaching such conclusions as I have concerning the Papacy and some of its Shepherds. I know that I am not alone in this, that many are similarly concerned at harboring such thoughts and feelings. Praying for the Pope(s), Bishops and Priests is a given and my daily Office is only ever offered as intercession for their and your intentions. Am I deceiving my self and others regarding what I see as the direction in which the Church is heading and my calling out the culpability of those who now hold the Keys of Authority? Am I one of those seen in the Fatima vision, throwing stones at the Pope, reigning down on him blows and brutality, insults and curses wishing him and his fellow Bishops be gone? Discernment is needed lest we get caught up in vanity and fail to see what we have become.
Below is that theme of which I speak.
Everything we see occurring today seems to align with Fatima, Garabandal and Akita reference the spread of Communism. The Garabandal Seer Mari Loli when questioned about why she was so upset one evening, answered:
“[because] of 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.”
“[Our Lady] 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.”
“…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.”
All of this is exactly what we are witness to in China It permits a form of religion resembling the Church presided over by Priests and Bishops but who are not canonically ordained. A false church of the State that strictly controls the use of texts, images and services, cynically permitted as an opioid for the people, that it, the State may more easily make timid those who might otherwise instigate anarchy against the Regime. We have seen reports of shrines and churches being demolished and the captured being sent to re-education camps. Those that escape, the validly ordained and parishioners loyal to Rome are now in hiding as a result. An escalation of suffering as a direct result of having being belligerently betrayed by the very one calling himself Pope and those indifferent apostate ecclesiastics with whom he surrounds himself.
Perhaps Communism will spread to Nations as a direct result of China mobilising to conquer. But before this the most immediate threat to the Nations is a World under the spell of this absurd Pontificate and it’s brand of relativist narcissistic Christianity, a humanistic one-world-virtual religion disguised as authentic Catholicism. This will be a religion of nihilism that embraces as virtue and pastoral mercy attitudes and lifestyles that are occasions for sin and contrary to the ‘way of perfection.’ A direct attack on the First, Second, Fifth and Sixth Commandments, the Priesthood, Marriage, the Eucharist and the Family. This will be the Anti-Church built by Rome, seated within Rome and spread abroad by Rome reaching every Diocese, every Parish every household. Those who resist will be branded schismatic, ridiculed, passed-over, trampled underfoot and removed from office. This Anti-Church’s pronouncements will not oppose but will further embolden Liberal Socialist Governments in their ambition to legislate more vigorously on ‘hate crimes.’ This will be nothing other than a means by which totalitarianism will arise unabated. It will be and is being presented to the populace as a visionary construct for a civil society, one that is fair, just, upholding of tolerance, is inclusive and rejoices in diversity. This will bring about a persecution of the devout. It will do so by redefining once safeguarded religious freedoms and sacred values as a pestilence, a divisiveness, an intolerance and bigotry an attack upon that which the new society holds sacred. Thus is Communism entering unseen, even welcomed in to our homes unchallenged, for it goes by another name now, wearing another’s face and will thereby engulf the World in error. Very few places will escape this scourge.
Who is culpable? The silent majority of the Church prelates and lay, silence as a product of complacency for some, indifference by others, fear and cowardice by yet more. They are accompanied by those who like me fail daily in their known obligation to pray, make sacrifices and offer penances. The most culpable however are all those consecrated sons of the Church, Grooms to the Bride who have become apostates holding the places of authority and influence on the Church and the Word’s stage and are ‘accompanying’ many souls along the road leading to Perdition.
And so it is that the Angel of Akita speaks and raises the call to arms with the Penitent Rosary and ashes. And so exorcists had called for a day of fasting and prayer and so I must renew my commitment to my duty as a disciple of the Lord and offer all and more in reparation and atonement for sins committed by me, my family, my Church and the World.
God bless, and please when you pray, say one for me too
I have just some brief reflections below that we all need reminding of. And I respond to you largely because of the great effort you made to pour out you heart.
Dear Pete, your concern for the Church shows your sincere love. That is obvious, as is your search for the Truth.
Also, you seem to harbour no desire for being right and to prove others wrong. In this I see the great virtue of humility. I’d like to add that it is not good to be overanxious and to desire to have knowledge of the exact details of everything – we must trust God. The sin of Eve teaches us that it is not appropriate for us to know everything on demand just because we desire it. Rather, let us take council from the wonderful Doctor, St John of the Cross who exhorts us to “desire the knowledge of nothing” (Ascent).
And if we are in the “hour of ‘expectations’” it means we are chosen to live in these exciting and wonderful times where God’s triumph will be all the greater!
For our consolation, I’d like to point out that all apocalyptic writing has the singular theme of God triumphing over evil. The particular style and imagery is used precisely because of the monstrous spirit present in the hearts of men, yet which spiritual realm evades the eye of spiritually compromised. AND AGAIN, GOD ALWAYS TRIUMPHS! So, if this is the time when evil prevails, grace will always be more abundant (Romans 5:20) and the Lord wins in the end.
When it comes to criticising Pope Francis, my conscience tells me not to. It shouldn’t be that our Holy Father writes things like, “it is possible that in an objective situation of sin …a person can be living in God’s grace” (AL 305) and such other things as “The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom,” or that “No one can be condemned for ever, because that is not the logic of the Gospel!” (AL 297) etc, etc. – yet here we are.
Church law may be a consolation:
Can. 212 §1 Christ’s faithful, conscious of their own responsibility, are bound to show christian obedience to what the sacred Pastors, who represent Christ, declare as teachers of the faith and prescribe as rulers of the Church…
§3 They have the right, indeed at times the duty, in keeping with their knowledge, competence and position, to manifest to the sacred Pastors their views on matters which concern the good of the Church. They have the right also to make their views known to others of Christ’s faithful, but in doing so they must always respect the integrity of faith and morals, show due reverence to the Pastors and take into account both the common good and the dignity of individuals.
And to the question: Who is culpable? let me leave you with a favourite quote from Teresa of Avila (Interior Castle).
“Let us look at our own faults and leave aside those of others, for it is very characteristic of persons with such well-ordered lives to be shocked by everything. Perhaps we could truly learn from the one who shocks us what is most important though we may surpass him in external composure and way of dealing with others. Although good, these latter things are not what is most important; nor is there any reason to desire that everyone follow at once our own path, or to set about teaching the way of the spirit to someone who perhaps doesn’t know what such a thing is. For with these desires that God gives us, Sisters, about the good of souls, we can make many mistakes. So it is better to carry out what our rule says, to strive to live always in silence and hope, for the Lord will take care of these souls. If we ourselves are not negligent in beseeching His Majesty to do so, we shall, with His favour, do much good. May He be blessed forever.”
I hope that this imperfect response may be of help to some.
May the Lord bless us in this time.
Thank you, Fr. Chris, for your considered and enlightening reply, it is what I needed to receive.
It is enough that we must endure Satan who stands accusing us before the Throne of God, without me also aiding and abetting his condemnations of others. It is one thing to recognise error and raise a voice of concern and another to be accusatory and pointing the finger of blame at the person concerned.
Prudence suggests that we must pray the Holy Ghost ensure we do not fail to recognise that which is contrary to the millennial teaching of Holy Church and from whence it comes. We are in consequence of such prayerful requests, necessarily bound, in all charity, to make supplication to God in that He illumine forthwith the minds and hearts of all who are the source of such discovered errors. That in so doing, also acknowledge that without Grace and constant watchfulness, we all in our sin and weakness become susceptible to the pernicious corruptions of the Enemy.
I have been reading the mystical life of St Anne Catherine Emmerich. As a result, I have begun to appreciate that it was in her very silence, (due to her confinement and sufferings) that, God’s admonishments were made more abundantly manifest to those tending toward error and apostasy. Moreover, it was again due to her very silence, confinement and sufferings that her atonement for the consequences of such errors was made most efficacious. As a Victim Soul she poured balm upon the Church in an immeasurable manner. Whilst she was moved to sorrow by the failings of clergy (‘many but not all’) and the indifference of the faithful, (not only of her time but across the centuries and nations shown her by her Guardian Angel) she none-the-less never succumbed to slighting or speaking with disrespect toward those most culpable. She rather in consequence worked all the harder in that ‘nuptial house and its garden’ so often entered in to during her ecstatic journeys, therein to make reparation for sin and interceded for ‘poor sinners.’
And so, on reflection, my conclusions regarding this ‘hour of expectations’ in light of receiving your advice Father, is that the ‘Signs of the Times,’ in my view, are unmistakable and I can no longer wish it otherwise, for to do so, is to simply delude myself. In delusion one does not act appropriately as times demand, one cannot be ready for the call to arms (Rosary), one does not begin to help effect change or offer atonement. The change to be affected is first and foremost required of myself. It is as you say, to be silent in the manner suggested by St, Teresa of Avila.
“Let us look at our own faults and leave aside those of others.”
It is also to ask God that we too might adopt the attitude of Victim Souls, who through God’s providence demonstrate the most effective means of assisting the Church Militant and World in the hour of greatest need.
I am, though it may seem contrary to be the case at times on these pages, very much at peace, I am deeply in love with my God, my Lord, I adore Him and His most Blessed Mother Ever Virgin Mary, Mother of my Faith, Keeper of my soul. Whilst such Grace brings me inner joy and peace, it paradoxically also causes a deep sadness; it’s sometimes a happy sadness, that such Great a Love should love me so poor and unworthy, and also at times a sorrowful sadness that such Great Love should be so obstinately unloved and unknown by so many even to their own destruction.
I will always support this Garabandal Blog created for us by Aviso but I will no longer raise a critical word or thought toward the person of our Shepherds, no matter who. I will always do my best with the help of our Priests and all those who visit these pages, to defend the Bastions of our Faith and Holy Church. I will always vigorously refute error when I recognise it, especially when it represents a real and present danger to souls.
May God bless each and everyone of us during this joyful and holy season.
Thank you for your prayers and patience and a special thank you to Fr. Chris in contributing to our Blog, a holy spiritual director is a most welcome visitor.
Dear Pete, my good Friend, those are also the words of our Lady of the Mount Carmel in 1965 in her second message to the world :
” ………Many cardinals, many bishops, and many priests are on the road to perdition and are taking many souls with them……..”
The Mother of God called them by their Name, in other words she named them, she denounced them and that in 1965, imagine now what the Queen of Prophet, Mother of God and Mother of the Church would say today, seeing the teaching of her Son as his Church in the hands of the enemy, Apostasy from the Top, taking souls to hell day after day, did you knew that this part of the second message of Garabandal was the most attacked by the clergy of that time, to the point of changing it, from Many Cardinals, many Bishops and many Priests to Many Priests only, by the way who is our Lady ? did she is not also known as the greatest humility that ever existed ? Yes of course She is and Garabandal News as his servitor, myself, is at her service and from the beginning of this blog, by calling an Apostate, APOSTATE, by Calling Heresies by HERESIES, by calling Francis heretic, I am not on the road to Perdition and I am not taking many souls to hell but on the contrary I am serving Mother Church to whom I own my Baptism, me too I love my God, me too I love my Mother, me too I love my Church as our Shepherds, me too I pray in silence and suffering seeing the Apostasy at the Top but I will always call a heretic A HERETIC, even if he is a Pope, by the way I cannot support anymore a great part of the current clergy, leaving a small blog like mine doing their job because I too would have preferred to stay in silence and pray only but they did not allow me, thank you.
PS : My Friends I am on the way to Garabandal and should be in the village probably next week, we keep in touch.
Fr Chris and Pete et al.
Fr Chris I am a fan of Anne Catherine and am blessed to be able to say, I am a recipient, through her, of one of those private miracles her father refers to, in one of his many conversations with his daughter.
Without her I would still be lost instead of having been found and back in the true faith!
40 years in the wilderness was I until Anne Catherine, and, my amazing guardian angel, together, somehow!!, found a way to drag me back!
But you refer to “St Anne Catherine”! She hasn’t been canonised yet has she? She will be I know but not there yet, or is she?
And I have read her story and am now in the 4th Volume of ‘City Of God’! Both Anne Catherine’s revelations 200 years after ‘City of God’ and those of Sister Mary of Agreda in the ‘City of God’, are similar.
So are their visions of the future – Our Lady’s triumph for the greater Glory of Almighty God being, her Son, her Father and her spouse (the Holy Ghost), is assured.
The ‘City of God’ is very revealing with Our Lady constantly, during her life, taking the humblest and quietest way relying on the grace of God for resolving every issue she confronted – even the water into wine miracle.
I remember Our Lord constantly told Anne Catherine to rely on his grace ‘for you need nothing more’ (or words to that effect).
Sister Mary was told this as well by Our Lady and Our Lady was also told this during her life by both The Father and her Son, Our Lord..
So Pete you have been guided well, on that point and your conclusions. Keep up the fight!
And Pete Our Lady’s approach to St Peter (your saint) around the passion of Our Lord will further encourage you if you haven’t read ‘City of God’. Volume 3 on that point!
Silence was a constant companion for Our Lady her whole life to allow her to be in communion with Almighty God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
So far I see Anne Catherine’s life reflected in that of Our Lady as Sister Mary reveals.
Also Our Lady is constantly telling Sister Mary how sad the clergy and their treatment of her divine Son, saddens her and Him. And remember this was 200 years before Anne Catherine and 400 years before our times.
Let’s pray with great confidence.
God bless, all.
Dear Servus, I didn’t mention Anne Catherine Emmerich. But what resonates with me in what you wrote is that “Our Lord constantly told Anne Catherine to rely on His grace ‘for you need nothing more’ (or words to that effect).” What better advice could we have than to completely abandon ourselves to Our Lord?
God bless you
My mistake Fr Chris.
It was Pete who mentioned Anne Catherine.
And yes agree.
Interestingly Our Lady’s instruction to Sr Mary Of Jesus at the start of Volume IV is exactly the same.
We are so blessed to have these amazing saints give us these insights.
Thank Almighty God for His Blessed Mother, Our Lady Of Mt Carmel.
God bless all.
Is Anne Catherine a Saint? As of now, no. Pope St. John Paul II beatified her in 2004. Her cause for sainthood is being handled by the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter. Not sure why it’s taking so long!
Interesting writing for the current time and the time to (shortly) come:
God bless. Let’s pray.
Sadly, in partial disagreement (sorry, but I have to!) with Fr Chris, I would like to stress once again the fact that Card. Bergoglio IS NOT a legitimate successor of Saint Peter, as should be clear to everybody in good faith now. Consequently, we should not owe Bergoglio the obedience as if he was the pope: this would be sinful, once we have, by God’s grace, understood who he really is: a Mason infiltrated to the top of the Catholic Church to try to destroy it (WILLINGLY!).
Saint Peter, the first (and true!) pope, together with Saint John, would asks us, today (Acts, 4,19):
“Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.”
We are fighting the final battle. (True) pope John Paul II, instead of revealing the III Secret of Fatima decided to add the following paragraph to his Catechism, which depicts extremely well the current situation within the Church and the events that are about to unfold:
” 675 Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers.574 The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth575 will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.
676 The Antichrist’s deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgment. The Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism,577 especially the “intrinsically perverse” political form of a secular messianism.
677 The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection.579 The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God’s victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven.580 God’s triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgment after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world.”.
God bless. Let’s pray!
Pete my good Friend, please check the source and be sure of it before publication online which I am sure you have done it, by the way I will ask the same to our 2 other Moderator and close Friend, Juan and Michael, as you know my Brothers, I am quite busy and around the world for my job, I want to avoid at all cost what happened to us with the Australian Journal recently, also whenever this australian team is in our beautifull village, please keep me in touch, especially Michael and Juan, thank you.
My goodness…it is amazing to find you ….this entire Amazon Synod…the sham it presents….heavens…how can this Pope and his Cardinals be SO blind…..even without this so called “synod” there are so many things happening….this great evil man McCarrick..previously a Cardinal…what this man has done….Jesus help all of us!
Thank you, Pete. I had heard something of this, but people seemed unsure as it was being so very little reported.
Akita, like Garabandal, emphasises the Eucharist. Sister Agnes was instructed by Our Lady that her community was to insert the word ‘truly’ into their prayer i.e. “Truly present in the Eucharist.” Also, a priest suggested that the stigmata on Sister Agnes’s hand meant that she had to receive Jesus on the tongue and so the other sisters did likewise.
It strikes me that if priest and extraordinary ministers have to wash their fingers before/after touching Our Lord it could not be right for the communicants not to.
Anne Barnhart has a couple of informative articles on the pachamama bowl, the soil and plant and the placing of it on the actual altar.
Yet, when I go to Mass tomorrow the priest will never in a million years acknowledge that anything ever occurred. God have mercy on us.
Well done my brother in Christo👍
The last comment concerning the Synode was from me!
God bless you
Cheers Jochen, I note there were two versions came through I kept the first, is that OK?
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
Please read carefully, I am convinced that Aviso is right about communism related to Garabandal
In Garabandal it was said that after the fourth Pope after John XXIII the end times would come. The fourth pope is Benedict. So we are in the middle of it. And the Great Warning would come after an important Synod. Currently, the only synod planned in the Vatican is the Amazon Synod. What turned out to be an unimportant synod until a few years ago now seems to be an important synod, threatening to cause even a schism in the church.
So it’s not the family synod or the synagogue, but the Amazon synod that fits that description. It is only from this forthcoming Synod that the working document is so extreme that it has been described by certain cardinals as a veritable heretic, a waste of faith. Cardinal Brandmüller said of the document: “It should now be emphasized that the Instrumentum Laboris binding doctrine of the Church should speak at important points and therefore be named as heretic”, and Cardinal Müller the next Synod called a “wrecking ball” which ” Restructuring of the Universal Church “aims. “The modernist Mgr. Overbeck said that after this synod in the church,” nothing will be as it was “. Our dear wife told Conchita in 1961 that the warning would come soon after an important synod. When Conchita told her aunt, she asked if she was talking about the Vatican Council (which was in progress). She said: “No, the Virgin did not speak of a council, but of a synod, and I think the Synod is a little council. “It’s impossible for a 12-year-old girl to talk about a Synod that did not exist at that time (no Synod was in preparation or planned, and Vatican General Bishop Synods). were first by Pope Paul VI. reintroduced after the Apparitions in Garabandal). Mother Garcia added that she received this information from Father Rafinel, who heard her from Father Pesquera, who wrote some of the first books on Garabandal. The Virgin appeared to Garabandal from 1961 to 1965 for 4 young girls. There, among other things, Mary predicted the warning or clarification of conscience, the great miracle and the punishment. The Holy Father Pio saw this great miracle in a vision shortly before his death.
The Blessed Virgin also told the seers about the popes. Conchita, one of the seers, said that after the death of John XXIII. In 1963, three more popes come for the end of the times. There were actually four, but one would have a very short reign, so it was not really counted by the Blessed Virgin.
This prophecy is fulfilled because according to John XXIII. Came
Pope Paul VI
Pope John Paul I
Pope John Paul II
Pope Benedict XVI
Jorge Bergoglio has been in power for 6.5 years, but Pope Benedict XVI. Lives and lives in Mater Ecclesiae (Mother of the Church), a monastery in the Vatican.
The Blessed Virgin also spoke in Garabandal about the threat of communism. She said that if the great warning – the clearing up of conscience – came up, communism would persecute the church. This prophecy is fulfilled too. Jorge Bergoglio and his entourage are liberation theologians – these are “ecclesial communists”. Jorge Bergoglio, who presents Chinese Catholics to the Beijing Communists and Communist Bishops. Jorge, who blessed the liberation theologians and made them holy? … and Bergoglio, who dismissed the traditional bishops and dismantled the communities. In addition, the Blessed Virgin said that at the time of the warning, the Pope would not be in public, he should hide (Pope Benedict lives in the monastery).
Thank you very much for this timely post and your commentary on it.
We all need to pray and do much reparation because evils of great magnitude
have reached up to the very top of the Church.
Thank you very much for this timely post and your commentary on it.
Good find, Pete…Many thanks for this!
Thanks for the report Pete… Seems the message for a daily rosary has been on full blast in 2019 from most of our Catholic independent media(youtubers/ podcasts/ etc.) reporting on the corruption of the Church. There will be a purpose and reckoning in the future for those that keep the daily rosary.
I hold out the hope of immeasurable graces coming from the militant of Catholics who say the daily Rosary with purpose and the growing movement of the faithful to experience the Latin Mass.
I want to add for the record I do not nor ever will subscribe to the notion of a ‘mother earth’ or sins against it. Earth is God’s footstool and if anything may be referred to as sister or brother in terms that all is created by God and is to give praise as in the Psalms and Prayer of St Francis. We have one Mother besides our biological Mother, and She is The Blessed Virgin Mary (God be Praised). The Church is Mother figuratively, she is first and foremost the Bride of Christ and we its members are.
PS. Don’t drop litter, recycle, and support sustainable farming and fishing, that is all that is asked, be responsible with God’s creation, our temporary home. And as for global warming and climate change, irrelevant, especially given the warning of Akita. If only all were as concerned for their immortal souls!
