Garabandal Speculation of 2010
Posted at: http://garabandalspeculation2010.blogspot.com/
(Primary SPECULATIVE points below in section BETWEEN ASTERISKS)
Although the following does not seem to be directly related to Garabandal, it is certainly ominous from a general prophetic standpoint:
Billows From Strange Iceland Crater Bring to Mind Prophecy That Told of 'Great Smoke'
It may be noted that May 13th, 2010 has been speculated upon by some as a possible date for the Miracle of Garbandal:
May 13th, which is a Thursday in 2010, corresponds to the feastday of a little-known semi-Saint [Blessed] of the Eucharist...........Blessed Imelda Lambertini, OP V (AC)Born in Bologna, Italy, in 1322; died there on the Feast of the Ascension, May 13, 1333; cultus confirmed in 1826; named patron of first communicants by Pope Pius X. http://www.saintpatrickdc.org/ss/0512.shtml#imel
<<<<<<< .....................but at this late date (final week of April 2010), given certain conditions (especially the Warning, and others cited further below) that have seemingly not yet been met, May 13th, 2010 appears to be unattainable as the date of the Miracle of Garabandal. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~` I should start this correspondence with an R.I.P. concerning one of the Garabandal visionaries, followed by some excerpts taken from a 1991 interview with her as conducted by Michael Brown................... Subj: Mari Loli, From: Joey@garabandalny.org, 4/21/2009,
It was with great sadness that we were informed late last night of the death of Garabandal visionary Mari Loli Lafleur in Boston...
Joey and Marilynn LomanginoThe Workers of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel de Garabandal http://www.garabandal.us/
Following article/interview by Michael H. Brown...............
Seer Mari-Loli Lafleur, originally from the tiny mountain hamlet of San Sebastian de Garabandal in north-central SpainMari Loli (maiden named Mazon) was 60 [at her death] and one of four girls who claimed apparitions that started with a dazzling angel on June 18, 1961 and were followed -- on a nearly daily basis -- by apparitions, they alleged, of the Blessed Mother, 55 miles southwest of Santander.
From a 1991 Interview:
Q: "Are you surprised it's taken so long for anything to happen?" I asked. "Did you think one of the warnings or the chastisement would happen before now?"
A: "Well, with the warning I know what year it's supposed to happen," she told me. "About chastisement I -- I was so young."
[Mari Loli was the only seer, it was said, who knew the year (if not the exact time and date) of the reputed "warning." Other prophecies have referred to a similar event as an "illumination of conscience."]
Q: "Loli, I know you can't reveal anything that's secret, but you said you knew the year of the warning. That time has not passed yet?"
A: "No," she said.
Q: "If I were sixty years old, would I live long enough to see this 'warning'?"
A: Loli was too smart for that tactic. "That's a trick questions!" she said, laughing.
Q: "Well, you're going to live to see the warning, right?"
A: "Well, I hope so," she replied,
Subj: Countdown to the Warning from Fr Joseph M. Esper http://www.pdtsigns.com/Esper_Warning_Illumination_of_conscience.html
...with the battle lines between good and evil drawn more clearly than ever before, the already-overwhelming pace of events will accelerate as we approach, not the end of the world, but the end of this age. ...
... What little we know about its timing suggests that it will somehow be associated with the letter A (an asteroid?) and linked to a solar prodigy, with a Cross visible in the sky throughout the world. One alleged visionary states that three days before the Warning, there will be another Aurora Borealis in the sky; the day before the Warning, all animals will fall silent; and moments before the Warning occurs, everyone will see his or her guardian angel as a form of spiritual strengthening and preparation. ...
There has been a considerable amount of news in recent weeks about warm relations between Moscow and the Vatican in both the religious and secular realms. This is an indication that it may not be all that long before the pope goes to Moscow [a prophesied "pre-condition" to the Warning]. Only God knows that future date...........
ROME, December 11, 2009 - In a terse statement two days ago, Russia and the Church of Rome announced "the establishment of diplomatic relations between them, at the level of apostolic nunciature on the part of the Holy See, and of embassy on the part of the Russian Federation."
Russian Orthodox and Roman Catholic Bond Deepens: Will the Two Lungs of the Church Breathe Together Again?
...One Church existed ... for the entire First Millennium of Christianity. It ... can exist that way once again in the Third Millennium of Christianity. ...
Although recent messages* [see further below] infer the imminence of the Warning [which we know will be followed, within a year, by the Miracle], we also know that implied Heavenly "imminence" does not necessarily correspond to earthly imminence.
In that light, consider the following excerpt from
...We are now in the GARABANDAL ERA ...
Primary SPECULATIVE points................
SPECULATION on possible years:
Perhaps the key to narrowing the timeframe for "the end of time" and thereby pointing to a specific year or years for the Warning/Miracle (all available evidence indicates that Conchita was given a FIRM date for the Miracle) lies in considering Pope Leo XIII's 1884 vision regarding the 100 years of Satan’s increased power.
Jim Condit Jr. thoroughly reviews this matter at:
...from which are here summarized some pertinent elements:
"...there are many indicators that we are in the latter decades of the 100 years of Satan’s increased power, as foreseen by Pope Leo XIII in the vision granted to him in 1884.... the end of the 100 years of Satan’s increased power may happen between 2014 and 2022. ..."
"...There is a rationale to make the case that 1914 was the beginning of the 100 years of Satan’s Increased Power. ...."
"...1917 may well have been the beginning of the 100 years of Satan’s increased power....Communists took over Russia in 1917. ([also,] the Protestant revolution, would be 500 years old in 2017 ...)
"...There is one account ... which claims that Pope Leo XIII had his 1884 vision precisely on the date of October 13 – exactly 33 years before the date of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima, which took place on October 13, 1917. ..."
"...an article in Catholic Family News had suggested that the 100 years of Satan’s increased power began in 1922. ..."
"...Sister Lucy said in 1957 that we are in a time of 'diabolical disorientation'..."
So we infer that the Warning could come in 2014, 2017 or 2022, with the Miracle following within a year (note that 1917 + 101 [Akita tie-in] = 2018 Miracle). Here we consider an interesting memo:
From: email@example.com Date: 5/6/2010
"So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations. "
"Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. "
[Is there a possible] Biblical connection with Inca and Aztecs Calendar [?]
Inca and Aztecs Calendar Stop at 2012 what connection is here?
There are 42 Generations from Abraham to Jesus. There is 2160 years between Abraham and Jesus. Divide 2160 years by 42 generation and you get 51.4 years for each generation add this to 1967.6 the year Jerusalem was taken by Israel in the 6 day war you get 2019 take 7 years away and you get 2012. This is the enddate of the Inca and Aztecs Calendar.
Could 2012 be the start of the Seven Years of tribulation?
Could 2019 be the year that Jesus our Savor returns?
An alternative theory:
"Amen, I say to you, this generation shall not pass awaytill all things be fulfilled”.
Now Adam was born in 4004 BC and Jesus was born in 1BC and there are 61 generations from Adam to Jesus. The length of length of years for a generation is 65.62 years or 65 years and 7 months and 13 days.
This is the generation our Lord is referencing here just by history alone. It is not disputable. If the generations from Abraham are used the length of a generation is 47.5 years [1995/42] which has elapsed. The story of salvation begins with Adam and Eve and all generations and years need to be included.
Now let’s add 365.25 x 65.62295 years to find the number of days we need to add to the date of
May 14th, 1948 [365.25 x 65.62 = 29968.78]. When adding this number of days the new date is Dec 28, 2013. What Jesus has said is that this generation shall not pass away until these prophecies are fulfilled.
One generation is about 66 years which says at the outside 2014 is the last year that the end times can be completed [1948 + 66 = 2014].
If 2014 is the last date for this generation to pass away then the seven year peacetreaty or covenant must have been signed before 2000 like Sept 1999 and weadd 14 years to get 2013 Sept.
... Unbeknown to us there was a 6 year delay ... you need to add in the 6 year delay which is also given in the bible which I have researched and found ... [taking us to 2019].
Another alternative theory:
I believe that we are in the "Generation of the Fig Tree" near the end of the 6,000 years that the Bible/Torah seems to point toward. ...
It would appear to me that the end of this generation would be around the year AD 2028. ... the scriptures seem to be pointing somewhere around there.
If this is, in fact, the Jewish Year 5770, I believe the maximum amount of time left would put us around AD 2240.
Subj: Blood moon eclipses: 2nd Coming in 2015?
April 30, 2008
A minister who promotes the Old Testament roots of Christianity suggests a rare string of lunar and solar eclipses [falling] on God's annual holy days seven years from now could herald ... the "Second Coming" of Jesus. ...
[A] string of ... four consecutive total lunar eclipses [blood moons], known as a tetrad. that coincide with God's holy days of Passover in the spring and the autumn's Feast of Tabernacles (also called Succoth) occurs between 2014 and 2015 on today's Gregorian calendar. ................two [solar eclipses] – one on the first day of the Hebrew year and the next on the high holy day of Rosh Hashanah, the first day of the seventh Hebrew month. Both of these take place in the 2014-2015 year. ...
The Prophesied Fig Tree and Generation
(We trust that the "end" is only of the "world" of thought that hated Jesus and his disciples - - John 15:18-19; 16:2 - - not the globe. Some say the end of the "age." I say it's the end-time, but only of evil - - Rev. 21:4, 7.)
Now, a few things concerning the timeframe (year-wise) of the Warning are implied in the prophecies of Garabandal:
- That Conchita (current age = 60) will be alive to announce it.
- That Joey Lomangino (current age = 80) will be alive to "receive new eyes."
- That communist takeover of the world wil be imminent (see further below).
- That it will happen during the papacy of Benedict XVI. (see PAPACY CONNECTION further below)
There's even a (remote) possibility that the current stage of the world that we are now in (the "pre-Warning" era) could continue until (approximately) the year 2033, taking us to 2000 years after Christ's Resurrection. This could mean that Satan's 100-year worldly rampage (as envisioned 49 years prior in 1884 by Pope Leo XIII) could have begun with Hitler's rise in 1933. 2033 would also tie-in to the apparent 2000-year historical cycle:
One more report received:
...supposedly, Fr. Gobbi recently was made to understand by Our Lady that we have been in the 7 year Tribulation (!) and are about halfway through....or have passed the 31/2 year point...which means it culminates in 2012.
<<<<<< ******************************** Report pointing to a possible [natural] 2013 prelude to the [supernatural] Warning?........... GEOMAGNETIC MEGA-STORM: On Sept 2,1859, a billion-ton coronal mass ejection (CME) slammed into Earth's magnetic field. Campers in the Rocky Mountains woke up in the middle of the night, thinking that the glow they saw was sunrise. But it was the Northern Lights. People in Cuba read their morning paper by the red illumination of aurora borealis. Earth was peppered by particles so energetic, they altered the chemistry of polar ice. It really happened--exactly 150 years ago. http://www.spaceweather.com/- or -http://science.NASA.gov/headlines/y2009/21jan_severespaceweather.htm
We just finished a 50+ day run of no sunspots. The last time this happened was in 1855, the solar minimum that was the run up to the big solar flare of 1859.
We know that the Warning/Miracle will coincide with, or bring about "the end of time." ................
Ronald Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org@roadrunner.com
Please note that Holy Church refers to the second coming of Christ [separately from] His final coming!
<<<<<<< ............. so it seems fairly certain that "the end of time", or more specifically, the end of this current era we live in, will usher in what is referred to as the Lord's Eucharistic Reign also known as the Era of Peace. Based on a limited review of some current (not necessarily Church-approved) prophecies, and relating to official Church teachings, Ron Smith surmises......... Subj: End of World Report, Date: November 1, 2009, From: Ronald Smith, E-mail: email@example.com
...In summary, I conclude with four points:
1. From today forward, there are three periods of time remaining.
2. Presently we are in the period of tribulation and cleansing to prepare the earth and the remnant for the Lord's Eucharistic Reign known as the Era of Peace.
3. The next phase of time is the actual Era of Peace, the New Eden.
4. The final event will be the last coming of Jesus in glory for the final judgment.
No one knows the exact dates of the fore mentioned periods of time but the Father! Lastly, the year 2012 is not significant to Holy Church. In her wisdom she knows that only God knows specific dates.
2007- 2009 compiled message from Thomas Fahy
The Drama of Garabandal is on its way to its conclusion, which means a complete and total change in the coming history of the human race—as happened a little over 4000 years ago with the Flood and Noah's Ark. ...
The mysterious words of Our Lady of Garabandal about the "end of the times" has often been a topic of discussion. Over the years some thoughts have come to mind such as: "The end of an era," "The end of our times that we have been accustomed to."
In the language of the Bible: 'a time, a times, and half a time' being accomodated to a 'time' equaling 2000 years, which might relate to what Jesus told Luisa Piccarreta about how God renews the world every 2000 years —
The Deluge, the Redemption, and now the developing Reign of the Divine Will. The Bible's 'time, a times, and a half a time' might be rendered as 2000 years from Adam to the Flood + 2000 more years to Redemption + another 2000 years to now, and then 1000 years from now to the end of the world. ...
On June 18, 1961, St. Michael the Archangel appeared to 4 young girls, ages 11 and 12, in the tiny, mountain village of St. Sebastian de Garabandal, which is located in northern Spain about 42 miles southwest of the coastal city of Santander. He appeared on several evenings before announcing that Our Lady would appear to the children on July 2 (1961), which was then the Feast of the Visitation. ...
... Our Lady came dressed as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and appeared there about 2000 times until November 13, 1965.... Mary gave the children two formal messages and also several instructions, divine secrets and predictions. ...
Concerning the papacy there is the mysterious prediction that there would be three more Popes after Pope John XXIII and then would come the "end of the times" but not the end of the world.
But now there have bee 4 Popes after Pope John XXIII rather than three… This is rather startling news to those who had read only about "three more Popes…"
Actually this was reported in a book in the German Language book published in the early 1990's, but it seems that most followers of the Garabandal drama were not aware of this and apparently are still unaware of this. Conchita said at the time of the death of Pope John XXIII that Our Lady had told her that there would be three more Popes and then would come the end of the times.
Mr. Albrecht Weber, the author of the book in German mentioned above, had become involved in Garabandal in 1963 and became friendly with Conchita. On November 14, 1965, the day after the last apparition of Our Lady in Garabandal, Mr. Weber interviewed Conchita at her home in the presence of her mother.
There was also present with Mr. Weber an interpreter. During that interview, it came out that when Conchita had spoken, on the very day that Pope John XXIII died, of "Three more Popes and then would come the end of the times," her mother had asked her several questions. In response to one of her mother's questions, Conchita responded that Our Lady had actually said that there would be four more Popes but that She was not counting one of them.
When Conchita's mother heard that she strictly forbade Conchita to repeat that again as her mother feared there would be erroneous interpretations and much gossip. People might wrongly believe that one of the Popes might be false or bad, etc. During that conversation with her mother, Conchita also said that Our Lady had told her that one of the Popes would have a very short reign.
Understandably, there is some confusion and speculation about this prediction. The most reasonable explanation is that we are now in the time after the "Three more Popes…" and Pope Benedict XVI was not counted because he is now in the beginning of the "end of the times" period that would come after the three Popes following Pope John XXIII. ...
Related: Malachy's Prophecies
Saint Malachy (1094 - November 2, 1148) was known as great prophet. While in Rome in 1139 he received a vision showing him all the Popes from his day to the end of time.
According to these prophecies, only two Popes remaining after John Paul II.
Through the centuries, his prophecies have turned out to be amazingly accurate, even prophesying the date of his death.
In all, 112 popes and their characteristics are listed from 1143 to the alleged end of the world, or perhaps religion as we know it, when truth is inlay revealed about human creation and destiny.
The 111th prophesy is "Gloria Olivae" (The Glory of the Olive). The Order of Saint Benedict has claimed that this pope will come from their ranks.
Saint Benedict himself prophesied that before the end of the world his Order, known also as the Olivetans, will triumphantly lead the Catholic Church in its fight against evil.
It is interesting that Jesus gave his apocalyptic prophecy about the end of time from the Mount of Olives.
This Pope will reign during the beginning of the tribulation Jesus spoke of. ... We are here...time is short!!
More from Thomas Fahy:
Here are some of the lesser-known predictions, and some that are hardly known at all:
1. ...Mari Loli and Jacinta Gonzales in June 1962..... were shown the Great Chastisement and the Great Tribulation of Communism. ... a "sudden and unexpected" Tribulation of Communism led by Russia that will have an effect on the whole world, and which will happen before the Divine Warning to the entire human race... this great tribulation-which was not the Chastisement-
2. . .The Warning corrects the conscience of the world and STOPS THE COMMUNIST TRIBULATION ...The Great Miracle will follow within 12 months, and there will be conversions of many nations, including Russia. ...
3... The Great Miracle that God will perform at Garabandal at 8:30 PM on a Thursday in the Spring of some future year will be the greatest public miracle since the creation of the world. During the Miracle we will see the Glory of God but won't die from seeing this due to a special preventative grace. The sick will be cured, and unbelievers will believe. ...
4... There was a lady, now deceased, who worked with Fr. Laffineur investigating the events of Garabandal from the start. The two recorded thousands of testimonies and documentation, including a dialogue between Conchita and Our Lady, which was tape-recorded with Our Lady's voice audible on the tape. ...
5. . .At the time of the Great Miracle the Spanish Military will generously support the sick coming to Garabandal and nothing negative will happen to them.
6. . .There will be a very happy event in the Church on the very same day of the Miracle but not associated directly with it. In the future the various religions will unite. Divisions will cease, etc. ...
GARABANDAL'S PROPHECY ABOUT COMMUNISM.
Reprinted with permission from ..... GARABANDAL JOURNAL Nov.-Dec. 2003
(Note - ... Our Lady at Garabandal apparently never spoke about the radical followers of Islam, but she certainly did speak about Communism ...)
...Mari Loli... in 1967..."...The Blessed Virgin explained to us that this great tribulation, which was not even the Chastisement, would come because a time would arrive when the Church would appear to be on the point of perishing. It would pass through a terrible trial. We asked the Virgin what this great trial was called and she told us it was "communism."
[ABOVE QUOTE FROM "SHE WENT IN HASTE TO THE MOUNTAIN"]
...[Despite] the coming down of the Berlin Wall and freedom being granted to the former Eastern Block countries...According to Garabandal, communism will again be a force to be reckoned with in one final attempt at world domination. ... Mari Loli ...
At Garabandal, She spoke many times about Communism, that it would come back, that it would be led by Russia and cause a very great Tribulation. She did not talk about Islamic Jihadism. ...
Unlike pure Socialism, Communism strives to silence all opposition and control virtually all elements of society.
The destruction of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 appeared to be the end of Communism as a world movement. Twenty years later, however, the "Internationalist"/Marxist threat is real.
By columnist J.R. Nyquist - December 7, 2009
A grave strategic crisis is coming. ... It would seem, indeed, that the old Communist Bloc still exists, and is growing ... a Russian-Chinese alliance. These include Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Vietnam, Venezuela, and others.... especially in the Third World. Meanwhile, Communist influence in Europe is spreading ...It now becomes evident, twenty years after the so-called collapse of communism, that America didn't win the Cold War. The communist bloc merely reorganized itself under new banners and new slogans. The old ideology was outwardly abandoned to facilitate the interpenetration of East and West. It is an indisputable fact that the collapse of Communism in 1989 was part of a longstanding Kremlin plan.
MARI LOLI: Our Lady spoke several times about communism. I don't remember how many times, but she said that a time would come when it would seem that communism had mastered or engulfed the whole world. I think it was then that she told us that priests would have difficulty saying Mass, and talking about God and divine things... When the Church suffers confusion, the people are going to suffer too. Some priests who are communists will create such confusion that
people will not know right from wrong.[THE CALL OF GARABANDAL, Apr-Jun 1984.]
HOW EXTENSIVE WILL IT BE?.....
Would the persecution just be in Europe? When Loli was asked that question she responded that the way she saw it, she thought it would be more than that. Conchita's Aunt Antonia testified to having heard the visionaries say in ecstasy that "if we don't amend our ways, Russia will take possession of the whole world." [GARABANDAL — EL PUEBLO HABLA by Ramon Perez.]
If that be the case, then the persecution will in all likelihood go beyond the confines of Europe. But it appears that Europe will feel the brunt of it as the following excerpt from Garabandal-Der Zeigefinger Gottes by Albrecht Weber indicates:
Conchita mentioned that Padre Pio, during her visit with him, said to her "The great wonder of God [Miracle] must be paid for with much blood throughout Europe."
Aside from Garabandal, this great trial has been mentioned in the writings of saints, popes and blesseds as summarized by Fr. Joseph Brennan, O.C.S. in his article "Prophecy for Our Time" that appeared in the May 1983 edition of the Homiletic and Pastoral Review: "Christianity will undergo its most severe test of yet. There will be many casualties, many purifications. Such confusion will reign that it will appear that Christianity has almost vanished."
HOW WILL IT END
With no human force able to stop the persecution, God will have to intervene. Jacinta told Frenchmen Ramon Perez and Jacques Serre in 1979: "These difficult events will take place before the Warning because the Warning itself will occur when the situation will be at its worst."
This is corroborated in Father Brennan's article: "But then, as if to fulfill what Jesus said, 'Unless those days be shortened no flesh shall survive,' there will be a direct Divine intervention, both amazing and terrible, that will completely reverse the course of world events."
An excerpt from the above mentioned German book further informs us:
Mrs. [Christine] Bocabeille then asked Mari Loli: "If you are not allowed to tell me the exact year [of the Warning], perhaps you could tell me approximately when it will happen."
"Yes, it will be at that time when the world will most need it.""When is that?""When Russia will unexpectedly and suddenly overrun and overwhelm a great part of the free world. God does not want this to happen so quickly. In any case the Warning will come when you will see that Holy Mass cannot be celebrated freely anymore; then it will be that the world will most need the intervention of God."
We don't know when all this will happen, but Albrecht Weber's book contains this statement attributed to Conchita: "The pope will go to Russia, to Moscow. As soon as he returns to the Vatican, hostilities will break out in different parts of Europe."
TO SUM IT UP
A worldwide communist takeover led by Russia will appear to have succeeded and in the midst of this frightful aggression will be a harrowing persecution of the Church. Priests will have to go into hiding, the churches boarded up and it will become very difficult for the faithful to practice their religion. It will seem as though the Church had disappeared. The duration of this persecution is not known but it will take an act of God, the Warning, to stop it.
To close on a positive note, we again quote from Fr. Brennan's 1983 article: As a result of all this there will be a turning to God that will match the apostasy from God that preceded it, with the result, as Our Lady said at Fatima, that "an era of peace will be granted to humanity." This will be a peace such as the world has never known.
... Garabandal has an immense role, in God's Wisdom and Providence, for the Reign of the Divine Will on earth as in Heaven.
More from Thomas Fahy:
...Is there a connection between Fatima and Garabandal?
... On October 13, 1917 in Fatima, [after] ... the "Miracle of the Sun" ... Our Lady appeared dressed as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel with the Baby Jesus in her arms. She waved to the three children of Fatima saying, "Good-bye until San Sebastian, Spain"!
44 years later, ... Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, holding the Baby Jesus in her arms, APPEARED IN SAN SEBASTIAN, SPAIN! -just as She said she would. (She is always true to her word.)
But the San Sebastian, Spain, that She chose was not the big city on the coast of the Gulf of Biscay, near the border with France, but the tiny village of San Sebastian de Garabandal ...
The spiritual messages inherent in both Fatima and Garabandal are similar.
The temporal messages, especially in regard to Russia and Communism, are also inherent in both.
For instance, Fatima predicts and warns of the rise of Communism in Russia, whereas Garabandal promises the conversion of Russia which of course, implies, as a pre-requisite, the demise of Communism.
It is clear that Garabandal complements Fatima and continues where Fatima leaves off. Obviously, Garabandal is the logical extension of Fatima....
At Fatima,Our Lady said: "In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph…peace will be granted to the world."
This era of attacks on the Pope and the Church, this era of martyrs, this era of schism and dissent will end. No ifs, ands, or buts. We have it on good authority.
An era of peace is promised and God keeps his promises.
Following are quotes from another who spoke about the end of this era several hundred years ago. A German priest, not unlike our Holy Father, tells us of a time when all the world will be upside down. In the 17th century, the Venerable Batholomew Holzhauser wrote this about a generation in the future and it sounds uncannily accurate.
"They will ridicule Christian simplicity; they will call it folly and nonsense, but they will have the highest regard for advanced knowledge, and for the skill by which the axioms of the law, the precepts of morality, the Holy Canons and religious dogmas are clouded by senseless questions and elaborate arguments. As a result, no principle at all, however holy, authentic, ancient, and certain it may be, will remain free of censure, criticism, false interpretations, modification and delimitation by man."
He said that at the end of this era that calamity would befall the Church. All would seem hopeless. But, then…"But, by the Hand of God Almighty, there occurs so wondrous a change…that no one can humanly visualize it."
So wondrous a change that no one can humanly visualize it. A triumph for God and his Church. Our Blessed Mother said “In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph.”
Just as a reminder that the concept of the Warning is not merely a Garabandal-related concept:
Subj: Related Prophecies
Many prophesized warnings given by saints, seers and prophets throughout the ages tell of an exact time when every living being will see their souls exactly as God sees it-that is, all the good and all the bad accumulated in a lifetime up to that point
The Warning, or the "Illumination of Conscience," was foretold to St. Catherine Laboure in 1830, to the 19th century stigmatist Marie-Julie Jahenny, to St. Faustina Kowalska in the 1930s, and to the four young seers of Garabandal, to whom Our Lady appeared a number of times from 1961-1965.
"Christina Gallagher has been told that all the people of the world will be given a warning, through a sign; if the sign is not accepted, chastisement will follow. 'There will come a sign, when everyone in the world will experience an inner awareness, and will know that this is of God, and see themselves as they really are.
Subj: Excerpt from Fr Euteneuer at:
"...What I believe is going to happen is a great worldwide crisis that is going to wake everybody up, almost like what Garabandal said where everybody will see clearly for what is, and wake them up to the reality of their sinful consciences...."
Prophecy of the Lord given in a 1990 anonymous dream-locution:
"I will come not as a man of flesh, but like My mother, who already nurses Me and holds Me in her arms, as a light and power," the Lord supposedly said in that alleged revelation. "I will manifest Myself in a series of supernatural events similar to the apparitions but much more powerful. In other words, My second coming will be different than My first, and like My first, it will be spectacular to many but also unknown initially to many, or disbelieved. Yet truly I tell you, the arrogance of the world will have been broken, and so many more than normal will believe."

1) the orchestrated implosion of the world, especially USA economy, by the Freemasons who control the Federal Reserve, creates much social unrest and riots, protests break out leading the USA to "civil war"
2) As this unfolds, US troops are called home from Europe to quell the violence and unrest.
3) the pope goes to Russia for whatever reason.
4) Hostilites break out in Europe (as Garabandal states, below)
5) The Russians invade Europe
6) As Bl. Maria Tiagi and Sr. Aiello (?sp) prophecied, Rome will be invaded by Russia.
7) As Sr Lucia told Fr. Walsh in 1946, Communism will take over the world including the USA
8) Mass will be hard to find.
9) THEN WE GET THE WARNING
The magazine "Garabandal Journal" and ask for 4 special editions that cover these things in great detail: Issues #5, #6, #7 and #8. They are known as the Communist Tribulation, The Warning, the Miracle, and the Chastisement Issues. They cost $3 each from: Garabandal Journal - P.O. Box 1796 - St. Cloud, MN 56302-1796. Also ask for the FREE ISSUE. It is excellent.

Regarding the credibility of Garabandal, we may refer to............
......and in particular to the section regarding apparitions judged at the diocesan level as "constat de supernaturalitate" (giving signs or evidences of supernaturality), which reads:
3. Non constat de supernaturalitate . Finally, it may not be evident whether or not the alleged apparition is authentic. This judgment would seem to be completely open to further evidence or development.
