The Age of Marian Apparitions
INTRODUCTION:       No matter the age, the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart have been imparting the same message: "Pray! Pray! Pray!" A return to God is the priority and why God has sent His messenger - the Mother of God in a special way to convey God's Will, reinforcing Divine Revelation and His Holy Church. It is only through constant prayer, taken as a bouquet in loving, motherly intercession before the Throne of God, that the hearts of mankind will eventually be softened and all her little ones brought into accord with the Will of God. We continue with our feature on Garandal for the fruits of Garabandal's labors, a poor medieval-like farming village in northern Spain, span the centuries and the fruits of its apparitions may well span the corridor of time from the first paradise in the Garden of Eden to a new "spiritual paradise" on earth - the new Era of Peace - the Second Advent - the Reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus where men will live in harmony with each other and nature as God willed it from all time. But before this can become a reality, there must be a "purification" to prepare the world for the cleansing that must first take place. This continuing in-depth series on the grace-filled mystical phenomena of Our Lady's appearances through the ages and the meaning of her messages will open eyes and hearts because she is the mother of us all and her words of wisdom and warnings must be taken seriously...very seriously!

installment sixty-two

The Warning and the Miracle
The Apparitions at Garabandal

The Warning       Visionaries of Garabandal All has come to pass except the latter, but we have no doubts it will given Our Lady’s track record in prophecies! The messages of Garabandal treat the latter in respect to two great events which will occur soon. One is the great Warning and the other, which will occur within a year of the former, is the great Miracle. These two signs will be instrumental in converting Russia as well as the rest of the world and ushering in the era of peace sooner.

      Though we dealt on the Warning somewhat in the last issue, we’ll review what and why it is to occur. First of all, Our Lady has said to the Garabandal visionaries that the Warning is meant to serve as a "purification" to prepare us for the great Miracle.

      No one except Mari Loli Mazon LaFleur knows the year of the Warning. She does not know the month, day or hour. It will happen when the world is in the midst of a great turmoil, whether that is war, pestilence or natural disasters no one but God really knows. The great Warning will happen instantly. Everyone will first see it in the sky then feel it interiorly in their souls. The visionaries claim that "time will literally be suspended" as God gives every man and woman a dress rehearsal for the Final Judgment, so to speak. We will instantly see the state of our soul - how God actually sees us. All will see clearly the wrong they’ve done in their lifetime and the good they failed to do. It truly will be the "Hour of Great Mercy" for there is nothing more merciful than giving us a "second chance" to amend our lives. Our Lady has assured all that no physical harm will come from this experience, but that for many it will be extremely painful and some will prefer to die rather than facing up to their sins and past. If anyone would die it wouldn’t be from the sheer shock of their sins. It is meant to correct the conscience of the world, a world gone astray in the flesh, a world that has forgotten God and shut out all that He represents.

The Miracle       The Warning is necessary to purify the world for the ensuing event - the great Miracle. Only Conchita Gonzalez Keena knows the year of this. Our Blessed Mother has revealed to her that it will happen 1) within a year of the Warning, 2) At 8:30 pm Garabandal time (that’s between 1:30 and 4:30 pm depending on where one is in the United States at that time), 3) On a Thursday, the feast of a martyr of the Eucharist, 4) In either March, April or May between the 13th and 16th of the month, 5) During a great Ecclesiastical Event in the Church (Conchita confirms it is an event that has not happened in the last half of this century but will not necessarily be anything new or stupendous, only rare).

      Our Lady has promised this Miracle will occur in the pine grove above the village, the same pine grove planted by Conchita’s grandfather a few generations ago, and that it will be seen by all believers and unbelievers. The masses along with the media will flock to it and be able to televise it and photograph it but no one will be able to touch it. It will be a lasting sign for the entire world meant to bring everyone back to Jesus.

      If this doesn’t convince the world and there is not a drastic conversion, then the full brunt of the chastisement will be thrust on the world.

      To unbelievers now this seems like a lot of "poppycock" - "doom and gloom" they’ll term it. But to those who have truly read Our Lady’s messages becoming so prominent today, who have read and discerned Sacred Scripture, who have seen the signs in the headlines and the heavens, who have prayed in front of abortuaries, who have seen the decreasing reverence for all things spiritual especially the Holy Eucharist - the prophecies of Garabandal are a definite certainty.
