    Joey made a very big impact on my spirituality also and I loved his joy and sense of humor. I've observed so much joy from other religions role models in the faith over the years as well. In fact I would go so far to say that a sense of humor walks hand in hand with true sincerity of heart.

    Me too Mario. It is a favorite for Holy Communion or when I can't get to Mass. I also pray it on behalf of loved ones who have fallen away too. Not sure that is kosher but I have been doing it. A very powerful prayer.

    October 8, 1962

    Today Mari Loli and Jacinta On this October 8, 1962, the two visionaries learned of the coming of the future great Miracle that would prove the authenticity of the Messages and the "events" occurring at San Sebastian de Garabandal.

    In the book, Suddenly & Unexpectedly pg 93

    "We know that the Warning must precede the Miracle. I happen to know, as per Maria, that Mari Loli had at one point been questioned by a priest who was trying to extract the year of the Warning from her. She would not tell him. Finally, he asked if she could at least tell him if it was an even or odd year. She relented and told him that it would be an even year. "

    When I researched this many years ago, I found out that the priest in question was Fr. Gustavo Morales that she said this to.

    Thanks a lot. So we can now assume that the Warning will not happen this year. Probably it could happen next year, I mean that is what I hope...

    I have learned over the years, never to "assume " anything when it comes to prophecy. :)

    Ok but that means also that we should not take Mari Lola's remark serious regarding the even and odd year.

    You were "assuming" a date, I never said I don't believe what she said. I never pick dates.

    Elisa Powers

    I think you did not understand well what exactly I assumed: it was about this year, not about the coming years.
    What is happening to us Christians ? There is so much misunderstanding in this world, even among us. Peace.

    What a great read Glenn, thank you. Reaffirming that we should practice the traditions of the church and not be led astray. A wonderful thing in this time to rely on.

  14. I don't think it would be too much to think that miracles, separately, (as they are promised, separately, in various places of apparitions) could occur in the future at all of the places where Mary has show that all she has said or warned about for the whole world and the Church in these places were true...and also in order for the whole world, not just regionally, to recognize our Mother as the Father wishes her to be recognized for these end times, her times!

    I didn't state any other particular places since Glenn has this thread specifically for Garabandal.

    The conversations between Father Luis and the visionaries have, it appears to us, always held a very positive ecumenical trait. On the Feast, then, of the Divine Motherhood of Mary, Fr. Luis and Conchita spoke about this extraordinary prophecy already partly revealed by Our Lady on the previous October 1: "Ah, the Churches will be reunited? . . . Yes, they will be reunited! . . ." Conchita rejoiced over this formidable prophetic news. In November 1965, the visionary, as she had already done many times since October 11, 1961, confirmed the accuracy of that great revelation to the German editor, Albrecht Weber. She also clarified somewhat, what the Blessed Virgin had told her concerning the great Church event to come.
    "She (Our Lady) again told us that the divided (Churches) will reunite. There will be only one 'religion.' A better translation: "The Christian Churches will then be One in the Catholic Church."
    In the light of such a prophetic revelation, the meaning and scope of the "one, Catholic, apostolic and Roman Church" that the visionaries, in ecstasy, had professed for the first time on August 1, 1961, at the time of the recitation of the Creed, acquired their full significance.

    I was asked privately to pray for a physical healing for a member,and I thought my own story might inspire those of you who seek a healing.Our Blessed Mother & St. Pio do listen !

    I have received several "physical miracles" that "cemented" my faith as a boy. Each temporary suffering, eventually God turned into a positive, and faith building experience. Each was a blessing ! Many people fail to give God the time to turn a tragedy into a Miracle for them. Here are just two stories.
    I was "rough-housing " around with friends in a pool, and someone punched me in the head and broke my ear drum. I went deaf on that side of my head, and the pain was horrible. I went to the hospital, and they surgeon scheduled me for surgery the next day, to place a mesh screen in my ear, in hopes that a new ear drum would grow over it in about 6 months, then go back and surgically remove it , again in the hope of regaining partial hearing. I was in several high school bands ,so this was devastating. Again , I called my Grandmother who prayed to Padre Pio, and shockingly I awoke the next morning with a new ear drum ! No pain, perfect hearing !
    ( Boy do I miss having her around, a true miracle interceder . ) Thank you Padre Pio !

    I was about a 13 year old and I had a bone marrow disease in my legs. My Italian Grandmother (who was truly a living saint ) was praying for my miraculous healing, was a huge believer in Padre Pio, and I heard he was connected to and approved this apparition apostolate.
    I met Joey at an Aunt’s house in 1973, doing a talk and I kissed the medal (which the Blessed Mother kissed at Garabandal ).
    Two weeks later, after another x-ray, astonished doctors, said the disease was completely gone ! So I was certainly surprised and grateful to my Grandmother for her prayers to Padre Pio ( never really understand the meaning of kissing the medal at that time as a boy.)

    I believe I was predestined to work with this apostolate, having been healed by Padre Pio & our Blessed Mother so many times. Remember the last words of our Blessed Mother at Garabandal: “Pray to us with sincerity and we will grant your requests. You should make more sacrifices. Think about the passion of Jesus.”

    The following words are taken from two letters written by Conchita to youth groups from France, during their pilgrimage to Garabandal in 1970 and 1972.

    Conchita‘s written messages to youth group in France in 1970

    Life of Virtue
    The Eucharist
    True happiness
    The Rosary
    Jesus’s passion
    Examination of conscience
    Look at Mary

    The following words are taken from two letters written by Conchita to youth groups from France, during their pilgrimage to Garabandal in 1970 and 1972.

    "Be models for other young people"
    "The Blessed Virgin wants you to help convert the world and, thereby, prevent the wrath of God over our sins.
    She trusts in you; she trusts that your example and self-denial might make you models for other young people that haven’t received the graces that you have in hearing Our Lady’s messages."

    "She asks you to have a spirit of penance, sacrifice and prayer. Without these weapons, we can do nothing."

    Visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently
    "In the Blessed Sacrament you will find the strength to take on the life that the Virgin Mary is constantly asking of you. Make frequent visits to the Blessed Sacrament. Empty your hearts of earthly things that don't allow you to listen to God."

    It comes from being with God
    "The happiness which you have never felt is found only in the surrender to God and the Virgin Mary."

    "Pray to her with faith and trust."
    "Pray for one another, for yourselves, pray to Our Lady. Pray to her with faith and trust. She will give you everything that is good for you."

    Think of His Passion
    "Let us all together think more about Jesus' passion, in order to forget about ourselves."

    God speaks to your soul
    "You who listen to these words, listen to God who speaks within your soul, follow the voice of your conscience. Pause each day for just a few minutes to think about the bad you’ve done, the good you have failed to do and also the good you have done; ask forgiveness for the bad you've done and for the good that, through negligence, you failed to do and begin your Christian life again."

    Would the Blessed Virgin do it?
    "Pray before acting and ask yourself, beforehand, ‘Would the Virgin Mary do this? What would the Blessed Virgin do?’ It’s possible that at this moment, when you are about to do something bad, you change your mind."

    Today in Garabandal History:OCTOBER 13, 1961:

    A crowd of seventy thousand was present at the "Miracle of the Sun" at Fatima, on October 13, 1917. The Blessed Virgin was appearing for the sixth and last time, on that same day in 1917, to the young visionaries of the Cova da Iria, . . . under the title of 'Our Lady of Mount Carmel'.
    At Garabandal, on this "October 13," there occurred a mysterious cosmic phenomenon, the only one of which the Blessed Virgin refused to explain the nature or the reason, to the girls! Conchita and Loli, in ecstasy, saw, as it were, a dazzling star, not a comet, "nothing of that kind," said Don Valentin, who, at least in part, had witnessed the event, as had other people there. Kind of a preview of the prophetic worldwide AVISO?
