I am sure most people on this site have read or heard about the prophecies of Garabandal. I was revisiting it recently as it seemed to have a lot in
common with the asteroid predictions and I remembered that one of the girls was to announce the event 8 days before it happened. Now if they are in
their 50s the day of announcing the first sign can not be that far off? Secondly, does anybody know where exactly they are? And have they been
This all happened in 1961 in San Sebastian de Garabandal in Spain. The four girls: Conchita Gonzales (the principle spokesperson with the Blessed
Virgin); Mari Loli Mazon, Jacinta Gonzalez; and Mari Cruz Gonzalez were eleven and twelve years old at the time. From June 1, 1961 to November 13,
1965, the Blessed Virgin appeared to four young girls of the village. During this four-year period, an extraordinary number of apparitions for its
time occurred - more than 2000 - some lasting a few hours. There is even pictures and movie footage available online.
Today, three of the four visionaries have married Americans and live in the United States. They lead exemplary Christian lives totally dedicated to
their vocations as wives and mothers. Conchita has four children, Mari Loli three and Jacinta one. Mari Cruz is also married, living in Spain and has
The gist of the predictions were:
1A WORLD-WIDE WARNING
This Warning from God will be seen and then felt interiorly by everyone on earth. At that moment we will see the wrong we've done and the good we
failed to do. The Warning will be sent to correct the conscience of the world and prepare it for the great Miracle.
2A GREAT MIRACLE
The Miracle will take place at the grove of pine trees on a bluff overlooking the village of Garabandal. It will occur on a Thursday evening at 8:30
on or between the eighth and the sixteenth of March, April or May. (Visionary Conchita (Gonzalez) Keena knows the date and will announce it eight days
in advance.) It will be on the feast day of a martyr of the Eucharist and coincide with and event in the Church. All those either in the village or on
the surrounding mountains will see it. The sick who are present will be cured, sinners converted and the incredulous will believe. As a result of the
Miracle, Russia will be converted.
After the Miracle, a permanent visible supernatural "sign" will remain at the pines until the end of time.
If the world still does not change after the Miracle, then God will send the Chastisement.
In describing the vision Mari-Loli said:
"It would be worse than having fire on top of us - fire underneath us and fire all around us. She saw people throwing themselves into the sea, but
instead of putting the fire out it seemed to make them burn more."
In a note written by Conchita she states,
"The punishment is conditional upon whether or not mankind heeds the messages of the Blessed Virgin Mary."
Also she writes in her Diary,
"If the world changes, the chastisement can be averted."
