Manifestations in Garabandal
A Warning About Conflicting Information
Originally Published in June 18,
Our initial document - A Warning from The
(1) - was triggered by
the insistence from, what used to be the Flagship of the Garabandal Movement,
the Workers of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Inc. that Mary had clearly stated
that there would not be a third world war
(2). In a note added at
the end of said document we stated:
We have had the opportunity to review a series of articles in various issues the
(3). Specifically those
covering the Warning, the Sign, the Miracle and the Chastisement.
The articles are well written and the references used clearly indicated. The
problem lies in the fact that there is far too much hearsay information about
Garabandal in said references; references enveloped with an aura of
authenticity. Testimonials such as: "...while at Ceferino's kitchen we heard
Conchita say..."; or "...the mother of Fifi wrote to her third cousin Bea that
Loli said...."; or "...Conchita said that the Virgin said..." (when it really
should be "...understood that the Virgin said..."); etc., etc. drown the key
messages and the urgency they convey.
If one takes the time to review all of those statements, quotations,
testimonials, etc. one will see that the contradictions are more frequent than
the agreements and, precisely, in here lies the problem - the Garabandal
Smorgasbord or the Garabandal Cafeteria. The reader picks and chooses what
he/she wants to believe, then, becomes an "expert" and leads others astray.
Just what the Church Administrators have done with the Holy Scriptures since
the Church went Imperial.
What this achieves, under the watchful and guiding eyes of satan, is to confuse
the issue beyond belief.... "beyond belief" literally because the average
Faithful will throw his/her hands up and
erroneously conclude that the whole
thing is just another scam for which the Church Administration is well known.
There are far too many instances of contradictions for us to list them; besides,
we are not here to echo
Garabandal. Therefore, we categorically state, utilizing Garabandal language,
Step No. 1 (6)
take place as humanity heads straight into the
which will serve to remove the
chaff from the wheat.
All humanity can do now - as we keep repeating
(7) over and over again
in the hopes that the Blind and the Deaf
(8) wake up to
this reality - is to cushion the blows that awaits it through prayers
(9) and acts of
reparation. (10) The
only "conditional" that exists now is the adjusting of the level
(11) of suffering that
awaits humanity - nothing else. Period!
Precisely because what else we have read in the same Journal
(1) , this time the
May-June 2007 issue, is the reason for which we must issue Part II of this
In an article titled "Recollections - Part 2", where the intimate conversations
Conchita had with Sister Maria Nieves Garcia, the director of the school
Conchita attended in 1966-1967 in Burgos, we read:
Conchita had heard that there was a danger of war because of the situation in
Gibraltar. She was worried, thinking of her brother Miguel, and she spoke to
the Sister as soon as she saw her:
How afraid I am of war! Will it happen? In
1962, when they were speaking of the threat of a war, I asked the Virgin,
"Will there be a war?" She simply answered, "God does not want war for His
children." That says a lot, doesn't it?
Now, there is a very great difference between
"God does not want war for His children."
and “Don't be afraid because
there will never be a world war.” This type of contradictions is
precisely what we are warning one and all about.
The first statement would move the faithful to prayer so that war is averted
while the second conveys the message of:
"Party time! Let's shop 'til we drop - after
all - we do not have to worry about a war
no matter what we do!"
Of course, what we read from Sister Maria Nieves Garcia notes is the correct
But there is more....
In the same issue of the Garabandal Journal, in an article titled "Our Lady and
Original Sin", we read about how Mary was confirming the reality of the
original sin - something that we certainly believe in and understand well. The
problem in the article arises when we start connecting the salient points of
1. In 2007 Benedict XVI cancels the "limbo concept", being limbo where children
who die without being baptized go.
2. The "limbo concept" - according to theologians - as reported in said article,
tells us that "...children enjoy a state of perfect natural happiness, ....,
but without being in communion with God." [We ask:
Perfect natural happiness? Without
God? We may then be told: "We speak
of 'perfect natural happiness' and not "perfect supernatural
happiness". To which we would
respond: "There is only one 'state of
perfection' and that is when a soul is united with God; thus
natural happiness does not exist."]
3. Next, the article rightly exposes the errors of Indiferentism; a principle
which claims that one Christian religion is as good as other. There we
read about a Protestant German engineer Maximo Föerschler who was married
to a Spanish Catholic lady. Because of events at Garabandal he sought
conversion to Catholicism and was then baptized.
Wait a moment! Wasn't that gentleman baptized in his Protestant Faith? He
had to have been baptized to marry a practicing Catholic lady - otherwise
theirs was a civil union and, in accordance to her faith frame of reference,
they were living - intimate cohabitation - in sin (something which we are sure
was not the case).
Oh, that he was baptized? Then why the Catholic Baptism? What he needed,
upon joining the Catholic Faith was the Sacrament of Confirmation of his
4. In the same article, we then read a quotation from the book
She Went in Haste to the Mountain.
According to the testimony of a lawyer:
"I have been informed of a .... very meaningful episode that occurred.
Loli's newest little brother had just been born. One day she fell into ecstasy
near him and was heard to speak about him, showing astonishment at one time:
'What? So little and already in mortal sin?' She didn't put the crucifix on
his lips until he was baptized.
For the reader's reference - according to the Catechism of the Catholic
1861 Mortal sin is a radical possibility of
human freedom, as is love itself. It results in the loss of charity and the
privation of sanctifying grace, that is, of the state of grace.
If it is
not redeemed by repentance and God's forgiveness, it causes exclusion from
Christ's kingdom and the eternal death of
hell, for our freedom has the power
to make choices for ever, with no turning back. However, although we can judge
that an act is in itself a grave offense, we must entrust judgment of persons
to the justice and mercy of God.
A related matter of interest... we have read elsewhere that Loli was amazed at
was how large the original sin of her little brother was. Now,
that such statement
could also be be true since the original sin is not always the same in type or
size. That is dependent on the unique soul is attached to and perfectly
tailored to it by a principle uttered by John XXIII :
Every one of us must have his own cross to
bear; otherwise, tempted by selfishness or cruelty, we should sooner or later
fall by the roadside
As the reader may see, the consequences that such mixture of incoherent
information would have on an already disoriented faithful can be many and
This is why we continue to repeat that: Without the guidance of the Holy Spirit
of God - on permanent residence in the heart of the faithful - the faithful is
We do not care if he/she is a cradle Catholic or, as many people say as a
qualifier of sanctity, "...his sister is a nun or his uncle is a priest".
Either your spiritual GPS (Global Positioner System) is the Holy Spirit of God
or you are going to be in for a hellish ride through the End of These Times
if you are destined for
Remember - Pain is the Megaphone that God uses for the deaf and blind faction,
amongst His Elect, to hear and see. If one are destined for Heaven, he/she
will make it, however, the condition he/she will be in by the time he/she gets
to the proverbial "Pearly Gates" depends on how well and how quickly he/she
"saw" and "heard". In the inky darkness the world is submerged now, to
be able to "see" and "hear" can be equated to when a pilot approaches an
airport for landing with zero visibility - he does it with instruments.
Our "instrument" is the Holy Spirit of God.
Some of the disoriented faithful may not know miguel's face but it behooves them
to be able to "read his virtual lips" now - before is too late!
NO THIRD WORLD WAR Our Lady Said at Garabandal:
Of primary concern to the people of today is the impending threat of a nuclear
holocaust with the major superpowers (and lesser powers!) in possession of
weapons that can turn the world's centers of civilization into piles of rubble
within a matter of minutes. Heads of State and Church leaders have labored
under the burden of how to deal with the problem. But we know from what Our
Lady said at Garabandal concerning another world war, that there is nothing to
worry about. It will never happen.
On at least three occasions, Conchita has addressed herself to this
The first source of reference is Joey Lomangino who has known the visionary
since 1963. Joey vividly recalls Conchita telling him that the Virgin said
there would not be a third world war. According to Joey, there may be
skirmishes or limited wars between countries but not a global conflict. A
second source of reference is Anne Mequeli from Brentwood, New York. Anne, a
dedicated worker for the New York Center Scapular Committee, is a good friend
of Conchita’s and frequently attends the visionary's weekly holy hour to
‘pray for priests’. She gives the following testimony:
One night in Conchita’s house, everyone was talking about the ‘Cuban
Crisis’ when Conchita said to me, “At that time in my village, all
the people feared a third world war and everyone had radios close to their
ears waiting to hear of such a war. But I had an apparition at the time and
the Blessed Virgin told me, ‘No World War Three.”
A third source of reference is a taped conversation between Conchita and Bishop
Franciso Garmendia, Auxillary Bishop of New York, on August 27, 1981. In
answer to the Bishop's question about the ‘end of times,’ Conchita
responded: The Virgin told me that before the Miracle, there will be only
three popes (Paul VI, John Paul I and John Paul II). That same day—I
don't know if you remember but in France they were saying that in 1962 world
war would break out—she (The Virgin) told us that there would never be
another world war. Everybody, in fact, was frightened that day, including me,
when the Virgin appeared and said, “Don't be afraid because there will
never be a world war.”
