NOTE: Please be advised that the Warning, Miracle and Sign announced at the time of the Garabandal phenomena at San Sebastián de Garabandal, Spain, between 1961 and 1965 will not come to pass in the manner in that they were announced then. However, the Chastisement certainly will occur.
There is a very real possibility that the world is heading, without further ado, directly into (1) the Chastisement, which was announced in Garabandal and Akita (2), and which we have independently confirmed several times since 1992.
Since the apparitions of Garabandal ended
in 1965, visionaries Conchita, Mari Loli and Jacinta have, from time to
time, granted interviews in which they have revealed what they can remember and
are able to say about the coming worldwide Warning, Miracle, Sign and
Chastisement. In each of these interviews, although the same questions
are frequently asked about the event, it often happens that new or
supportive information, or a
different perspective, comes to light.
We must also keep in mind that the
visionaries reported what they claim to recall they saw
and heard - at one time or another. This, however, does not assure that
the conclusions drawn
about what they saw and/or heard are correct, due to the complexity of
the subject matter - a complex matter which is being projected through
simple and uneducated minds.
One area that is consistently glossed
over is the Chastisement. As
a matter of fact, some of its components have been even blended in with
the events associated with the Warning.
Why is this? Simply because the Faithful
do not want to hear negative information; they want to hear the Fairy
Tale stories of the Holy Pope and Great Monarch which will lead the
world, by riding like conquering heroes, into a Happily Ever After
The most information that could be found
about the Chastisement that
is practically upon us is what we reproduce now below:
information from Mari Loli was contained in a message written at the
end of 1967 to a Mexican priest, Fr. Gustavo Morelos, bearing her
signature (Now in possession of Mrs. Carmela (Maria) Saraco of
California, formerly of Brockton, Mass. [Published in
Ramón Pérez' "The Village Speaks" (pp 57-58) and "El
Pueblo Habla" (p 141)]. (3)
Then the Virgin made us see how a great Chastisement would come upon mankind and that this Chastisement would come directly from God.
At a certain time, not a single motor or machine will operate; a terrible heat wave will come down on the earth and men will start experiencing a great thirst; they will search desperately for water, but due to the great heat, the water will evaporate. Then most people will fall into despair and will try to kill one another..... but they will not have the strength to do it; they will fall to the ground, one after another. That is when they will realize that it is God who justly permits all this.
Finally we saw a number of people enveloped in flames. They were running to throw themselves into the sea and the lakes, but as they would enter the water, the water seemed to boil and instead of putting out the flames, would make them worse.
It was so horrible that I asked the Blessed Virgin to take with her our little so that this would not happen to them. But the Virgin told us that when this day comes, the children will have already grown....
And that is it!
We had not dwelt very much on the literature about Garabandal and the Chastisement because miguel de Portugal knew that a Chastisement was a reality since God called him in 1991 to leave all behind and follow Him.... precisely to do all that was possible to cushion it.
We did look into this issue now because of recent revelations to miguel de Portugal regarding a Warning-turned-into-Chastisement and what appears to be the mechanism that God may use (4). The more closely we looked at this matter, many things became apparent - up to and including the literature about the Warning. The main item is:
accordance with the book of Ramón Pérez, "The
Village Speaks" (pp 29-30) ("El Pueblo Habla" (pp 37-38), which is the most comprehensive
recompilation of the Garabandal events: on January 1, 1965 the Virgin
Mary revealed, for the first
time ever and to Conchita
alone, while at the Pines, the information regarding the Warning.
During the same apparition the Virgin Mary revealed the nature of the
The seriousness of
this anomaly is that the only other reported communications between the
Virgin Mary and any of the visionaries after January 1st, 1965,
were as follows:
