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.
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.
