Is Garabandal Our Final Warning? Mary's Messages are more Relevant than Ever!

The Visionaries of Garabandal

The apparitions at Garabandal are less well know than Lourdes or Fatima but they strike a personal chord with me since the seers, three of whom are still alive, are my contemporaries born in the late 1940s as I was. Our Lady, like she did at Fatima, called for repentance and penance. The messages focused on respect for the Eucharist and warned that many would fail to believe. Mary told the children a very great chastisement would come upon all humanity if people did not change their ways. It was the same message she gave at Fatima and would give a few years later at Akita exhorting her children to repent and do penance.

The apparitions were never affirmed by the local bishop and his successor. They said they could not confirm that anything supernatural took place. But it's not true that the apparitions were condemned either. The commission acknowledged that the messages contained nothing contrary to faith and morals.

Did the Blessed Mother appear there? Padre Pio thought so. He believed the messages were authentic and described his own confirmation from Our Lady. He sent the girls a letter in 1962 giving them a special message from Mary to pray the "Fatima Rosary" substituting the normal mysteries with these:
1) In this first mystery we see how the Holy Virgin chose Fatima as her favorite city to spread her messages. 
2) In this second mystery it is contemplated how the Holy Virgin chose the Cova de Iria for her visions. 
3) In this third mystery we see how the Holy Virgin chose the three little shepherds for their celestial conversations and to entrust the great secret to them. 
4) In this fourth mystery we see how the secret of Fatima is the greatest secret of all that she has said. 
5) In this fifth mystery we can see how the visions of the Blessed Virgin continue to be present in all parts of the world.
In light of all the Blessed Mother's warnings to us, have we heeded her? Are we changing our lives?

Is the world now holier and more devout than in 1961?

Is the Church holier and her leaders more devout than in 1961?

Mary said at Garabandal that there would be a "final warning" before the great chastisement. Everyone in the world would experience it and a miracle would be visible to everyone and a permanent sign left at Garabandal.

In one of the apparitions, Our Lady told Conchita that the final warning would come not long after a "synod." Are we seeing the fulfillment of that prophecy as we experience the synod from hell?

The messages of Garabandal were serious, but they carried the same exhortations to prayer and penance as the messages of Fatima. They warned that many bishops and priests were on the road to perdition. At the time, 1961, many were unwilling to believe the severity of what Mary was telling the girls about our priests. Now sixty years later, with all the evil of so many clerics well documented and the obvious heresy among so many, the Garabandal message is more understandable and more relevant than ever.

This is the first of 14 videos documenting the Garabandal apparitions. Were they supernatural?

This is the video that contains the last alleged message of Our Lady.

Below is a video with the testimony of Mother Maria de las Nieves Garcia, head of a school Conchita attended describing Conchita telling how the warning would come after "a synod." Like Bernadette, Conchita used words that she had no way of knowing or understanding.

I find the link between Fatima and Garabandal particularly interesting. On October 13, 1917 Mary appeared for the final time at Fatima and performed the miracle of the sun. During the apparition she appeared as Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the same way the children said she appeared at Garabandal. Padre Pio's letter closely connects the two apparitions. Like a loving mother Mary becomes more intense and urgent in trying to save her children.

Of course, no one needs to believe in the authenticity of private revelations even those approved by the Church, but we certainly need to heed the call to repentance and penance.

Will we listen?

Will we pray and do penance?

Or will we continue on our merry way ignoring the signs of the times? The hour is late!

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!

Our Lady, Queen of Heaven and Earth, pray for us!

St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, pray for us!

The Church of the Perfect Father is from heaven. The Church of the effeminate Fathers is from hell.

I haven't watched the videos yet but I intend to. I have read Ted and Maureen Flynn's book, " Thunder of Justice", which is a terrific read.

Ted Flynn is a big thinker, which I am not. I have a tendancy to focus on the splinter in my own finger and miss the world at large in turmoil just outside my window.

Some would call his "connecting the dots" between appartions and actual world events over long stretches of time a hard to believe, but I have total confidence in what the Flynn's write and only those ignorant of history and current events could say it is anything other than the whole truth.

This synod is the end game play to introduce a world religion. It is meant to be the final nail in the coffin for the Roman Catholic Church. The fall may not happen overnight, but the crack will be so deep the Church could not survive.

I say "could not" rather than "will not" because I hope and pray for the failure of the Modernists to destroy the Church. Send your cries to heaven. Mary, Our Mother, rescue us.

The connection between heaven and earth is active and living. I do believe that.

Jesus reigns on his Throne.

Our Blessed Mother intercedes for us there and pleads with us here.

Follow her; in obedience she will assuredly lead us safely through these trials to her Son, Our Lord.

Christ promised that the war is already won, that the Church cannot ever fail. Does this mean that all the Institutions built and run by the Church are guaranteed? That even St. Peter's Basilica itself will stand? No.
The Church is now what it was in Ss. Peter and Paul's day, a Body of believers. However tiny a Remnant, THAT is the Mystical Body of Christ. We may lose all the property, wealth and influence, and if that keeps wolves from signing up for power, wealth and influence, it won't be a bad thing.

Garabandal was definitely too weird for me to ever believe any of it. Of course if anything spectacular happens after the synod as said in the third video posted, it will make me rethink my stance.

"When Communism returns........." was the part of the Garabandal message that made me doubt its validity. Those of us who had escaped the nightmare of Socialism firmly believed Americans would never fall for those lies. The iron curtain fell, the Berlin wall fell. However, fifty years later, it is back! What a nightmare to see the attitude and listen to elementary, high school, and college kids. It is not their fault, but the brainwashing was successful. God help us now.

No Go
Sacred Congregation wishes to assert: that the Holy See has never approved even indirectly the Garabandal movement, that it has never encouraged or blessed Garabandal promoters or centers. Rather the Holy See deplores the fact that certain persons and Institutions persist in formatting the movement in obvious contradiction with the dispositions of ecclesiastical authority and thus disseminate confusion among the people especially among the simple and defenseless.

Well, of course that group is not going to approve the apparition! It indicts them in no uncertain terms.

The second message: "Many cardinals, many bishops, and many priests are now on the road to perdition, and with them they take many souls."

That statement has been validated a million times over since 1965.

Garabandal is a true apparition, and we will see its prophecies fulfilled.

Even if it were false, that wouldn't change the prophecies. They're contained in the writings of the early Church and Sacred Scripture itself.

Leo D Lion responds,
In the past, I believed all apparitions, locutions, seers prophets, especially when they would claim the Blessed Virgin Mary was appearing to them with messages and warnings.

Especially public apparitions in where the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to seer(s).

I'm a Catholic and truly believed these seers were announcing Heaven's warnings and or discontentment by using a seer or locutionist and revealing future catastrophic events.

This was norm for me until I met a person who actually investigated apparitions and he revealed a way, and means or method to approach public apparitions.

He warned me to " test the spirit(s) " Exactly how to test the spirts... He also warned me that demons may be what are appearing. Also that God allows this to occur. For example,,, when Fatima was occurring there were several similar events occurring in that vicinity.

So you need to be very careful, extremely careful that you don't worship a demon.... cause it's a Mortal Sin to worship a false god..

Pray the St Michael prayer and discern in Heaven favor
