Prophecy delivered by Virgin Mary at Garabandal
Garabandal is a small village in northern Spain, in the Santander province, near
the Picos de Europa mountains, a rugged and beautiful setting. Its full name is
San Sebastian of Garabandal. It is located 600 meters above sea level, some
57 miles from the capital of the province. To get there one must climb steep,
poor roads. No more than 300 people live in Garabandal. The town is
impressively quiet. There is no doctor in the town and no resident pastor at the
parish church. The pastor from Cosio, the next town down the road, used to
celebrate Mass there on Sunday.
In the evening of June 18, 1961, four girls were playing on the outskirts of the
town - Conchita Gonzalez, Maria Dolores (Mari-loli) Mazon, Jacinta Gonzalez
and Maria Cruz Gonzalez (not related despite having the same name.) Maria
Cruz was eleven, the others twelve, and all were from poor families.
Suddenly they heard a loud noise, like thunder, and saw before them the bright
figure of the Archangel Michael. On the following days the Archangel appeared
to them again in the same place. He announced that on July 2 they would see
Our Lady. This was the beginning of the Garabandal events.
Our Lady of Carmel
The news spread quickly through the region. July 2 was a Sunday and the town
was crowded. There were people from all social levels and very many from out
of town, among them several physicians and priests. At six in the evening the
girls went to the place where the Angel had appeared, and to the surprise of the
crowd they entered into ecstasy. Our Lady appeared to them accompanied by
two angels, one being St. Michael. The girls described the vision as follows:
"She is dressed in a white robe with a blue mantle and a crown of golden stars.
Her hands are slender. There is a brown scapular on her right arm, except when
she carried the Child Jesus in her arms. Her hair, deep nut-brown, is parted in
the center. Her face is long, with a fine nose. Her mouth is very pretty with lips
a bit thin. She looks like a girl of eighteen. She is rather tall. There is no voice
like hers. No woman is just like her, either in the voice or the face or anything
else. " Our Lady Manifested herself as Our Lady of Carmel."
When the vision appeared, the girls fell instantaneously on their knees, striking
the sharp rocks with a loud noise that was frightening, yet they showed no signs
of injury. The expression on their faces was suddenly transformed. Their look
became extraordinarily beautiful, sweet, one of profound mysticisim. There are
no words that can properly describe the change. They were completely
absorbed in their rapture, unaware of anyone or any material thing around them
except for each other. They did no react to pricks, burns or blows. All attempts
to distract them failed. Powerful beams of strong light were focused on them,
yet their eyes did not even flicker, blink or show any signs of discomfort. Quite
the contrary, their eyes remained wide open , expressing a look of intense joy.
However, when the girls returned to the normal state, they immediately shielded
their eyes from those bright lights which under normal circumstances should
have caused permanent eye damage.
During these ecstasies, which lasted from a few minutes to several hours, time
did not seem to count. On many occasions they remained immobile in off-
balance, beautiful "sculptured-like" positions, heads tilted back, eyes looking
up, kneeling on the rocks or bare-legged in the snow. At the end of the ecstasy,
they showed no signs of excitation or nervousness, just deep, profound peace
Visionaries transmitted two messages. The first one, delivered by the Blessed
Virgin on the 18th of October of 1961, reads:
"We must pay visit to the Blessed Sacrament. Many sacrifices must be
made. Much penance must be done. But first of all we must be good...
If we do not do this, punishment awaits us... already the Cup is being
filled, and if we do not change, we shall be punished.".
The second and last message, delivered by Saint Michael the Archangel in the
name of the Blessed Virgin, on June 18th, 1965 reads:
"As my message of the 18th of October hasn´t been fulfilled and announced
to the world, I will say to you that this is the last one. Before the Cup was
being filled, now is being spilled over the brim. Priests, Bishops and
Cardinals, many of them take the way of perdition and carry many more
souls with them. Eucharist is given less and less importance. We must
strive to avoid God´s wrath. If you ask for forgiveness with your sincere
souls, He will forgive you.
I, your Mother, by the Archangel Saint Michael mediation, want to tell
you that you are on the last warnings. I love you so much, and I don´t
want your eternal condemnation. Ask us sincerely, and we will give it to
you. You must sacrifice yourselves more. Think of Jesus Passion."
In 1965, upon Conchita´s decision, and bearing in mind the damage that could
be caused to the Church, which hadn´t been reached by scandals yet, she only
inserted the word "Priests" in the copy of the second message signed by her,
that´s how contents weren´t altered, as it encloses all the people who is
consecrated to God´s service.
Perhaps, Garabandal´s prophecies are the most striking point talk of everybody,
the one which is most announced, so that those who heard them before, believe
due to its unavoidable future fulfillment, and also, it must be admitted, to the
morbid pleasure some people experience on their apocalyptic storm clouds.
We can divide them according to their greater or smaller relevance, and to their
already past or future accomplishment.
They are all the miracles and ectasy which were notified with days or hours in
advance, happened afterwards always with accuracy. The most remarkable
among them is the Miracle of the Sacred Host.
It is a charasteristic of Garabandal: miracles are prophecied.
To be accomplished
Prophecies on certain people in accordance with one of the major prophecies.
In this respect, healings are prophecied about very certain people which are
scientifically impossible. John Paul II will be the last Pope before the beginning
of end times, which is not the same as the end of the world.
All to be accomplished in chronological order:
1.-The Warning of God´s Mercy
The Warning is a great act of God´s Mercy, on such a big scale that nothing
compares to it in all mankind´s History, bar The Passion and Death of Our
Lord Jesus Christ. However, its nature has nothing to do with the noiseless,
lonely, humiliating, brutal and loving death of the Lamb of God; but it´s more
like an universal smack, a sort of pulling down the world out of its motorbike,
the same way Saint Paul was unhorsed, in order to make see the whole world
at the same time the blurred figures we have had mocked about previously.
Which information do we have? Here it is:
It will be seen in the sky all over the world and immediately transmitted to the
inside of our souls.
It will be an astronomic phenomenon, similar to a bang of stars with a lot of light
and noise, but it won´t fall over us.
It will be like fire, but it won´t burn our bodies, though it will be felt physically
It will last a very short time, but its effects on the world will be huge.
We should not be afraid of death if we are not quaking with fear or, in some
special cases, due to God´s Mercy.
Everyone will see in a short period of time how their souls are before the light
of God, and will know that He exists, and that He has been present at every
single sin of theirs.
It will be like a trial in miniature.
God hopes that, through this act of His Mercy, we amend our lives, and turn
away from the wrong path.
Those who already know and love God, will be closer to Him.
Many will be converted, but still many will keep on denying God, denying the
One Who is, in an act of supreme hypocrisy.
2.- The Great Miracle of God´s Grace
Images that could still remain unclear in our souls after the Warning, thanks to
the Great Miracle, and with our compliance, will turn as clear and neat as a
starry sky (Mc 8, 22-26). The Warning and the Miracle are the two steps of
God´s Grace and Mercy, where in-between a free choice up to man is tucked
under, The Master has exceptionally consented to His Mother, in spite of His
natural annoyance at giving out signs from heaven to unfaithful generations (Mc
8, 11-13). The Good Shepherd doesn´t come in search of one, but of all His
lost sheeps, an invaluable treasure of souls to Him, being, as He is, God
We have the following information:
It will be a very great Miracle, larger than Fatima´s, and as spectacular and big
as the world needs.
It will occur within one year after the warning.
Conchita knows the date exactly, and must warn us with eight days in advance.
It will be visible from Garabandal and the surrounding mountains.
The Miracle will coincide with an important, very unusual event in the Church
and on a feast day of a martyr of the Eucharist.
It will occur on a Thursday evening at 8:30 pm between the 8th and 16th of
either March, April or May.
It will last from ten to fifteen minutes.
It will not be necessary that the visionaries are present during the event.
The sick who are present will be healed, and the unfaithful will recover their faith.
Father Pio, and the Pope will see the Miracle from wherever they are.
There won´t be any doubt that the event is a Work of God for our salvation.
The Miracle is so impressive, that we would die of happiness if a special grace
is not given to us at the moment of seeing it.
Priest Luis Mº Andreu was given the grace to see the Miracle, and died within
a few hours, plenty of an inmense feeling of joy.
As a result of the Miracle, a permanent sign will remain at the Pines of
Garabandal until the end of the world.
A Permanent sign until the end of the world
As a result of the Great Miracle, a visible permanent sign will remain until the
end of the world at Garabandal Pines. It will be possible to film or take
photographs of it, but it won´t be tangible. It will be a permanent testimony of
what God´s Grace and Mercy did there for the world´s salvation.
4.- The Chastisement of God´s Justice
Firstly, let´s make it plain: the Chastisement is a conditional prophetic event,
that is, it´s fortunately avoidable. Conchita says textually: 'This future Miracle
will take place before the Chastisement, and if the world changes, then
there won´t be any Chastisement'. So, it is up to us to avoid it (or as some
voices in Medjugorje, Yugoslavia, puts it, just attenuate it). Someone may
grievously think: 'What a joy means to be dependent on the world´s
conversion for our salvation. If only me and a few more sinners come
through, the devastating fire will fall upon us all the same...'
This kind of anguish doesn´t match with the necessary trust in Providence. Stay
calm. The Warning and The Miracle are two previous incomparable acts of
God´s Grace and Mercy. Its goal is the whole world´s conversion. It´s true: we
are free; if man insists on being burned to a charred cinder until no bone is left.
But it´s also possible to jump out of a window, or rip one-thousand-dollard
notes up, and we perceive there are better things.
A Flood of something worse than fire. For those who like to be very frightened,
here are some details of the avoidable event:
It will fall upon good and wicked, upon children and elderly.
Nobody will escape.
The Inmaculate Heart of Mary will be equivalent to Noah´s Ark, and the
salvation She provides is the eternal one.
According to Conchita: "It will be worse than fire above us, below, and
She carries on: "I saw people jumping into the sea, but instead of driving the
fire off, they seemed to burn more in it."
During the ecstasies in which the children saw the chastisement, they began to
shout in pain: Oh, Let the children die first, let the people confess...!
Their shouting and moaning on ecstasy caused so much panic in the village that
everybody confessed and received the Holy Communion at those days.
In case it occurs, two thirds of mankind will perish, and the rest will prefer being
dead to facing the catastrophe.
Many of the survivors will convert and mankind will begin a period of peace
If we begin now this period of peace and love, there won´t be any chastisement.
They are the end times, not the end of the world.
