    If I may add, 7 Secrets to Confession by Vinny Flynn might he a great guide. It is a small book. I'm reading it now for a different approach to a "grocery list".

    In September of 1963, Conchita gave a description of the Martyr, it's not even close to this saint. Lots of pieces to this puzzle, not just the feast date.

    The Fifth Visionary of Garabandal Who Died of Joy.
    By Barry Hanratty

    Fr. Luis Maria Andreu Rodamilans, S.J., was the only person besides the four children to see the Blessed Virgin at Garabandal, and the only person to see, in advance, the Great Miracle which Our Lady promised will take place at Garabandal in the future 'time appointed by God

    On August 8, 1961, Fr. Luis went to Garabandal with a group of friends. It was his second visit to the village. That evening the visionaries had an ecstastic march, the first of many such marches during the years of the apparitions. It was a very long march which ended at the pines. Fr. Luis and many other people followed the visionaries. Afterwards, Conchita wrote in her Diary: “It was dark when the Blessed Virgin appeared to us. At the end of the rosary, the four of us went into ecstasy and we began to walk toward the pines. When we arrived at the pines, Fr. Luis Maria, who had followed us, said: ‘'Miracle, Miracle,Miracle'’ and he kept staring upward. We could see him. Now, in our ecstasies we never see anyone (except the Blessed Virgin). But we saw Fr. Luis, and the Blessed Virgin told us that he was seeing her and the Miracle, too.” In the ecstasy, the children saw Fr. Luis on his knees. Conchita further stated that the Virgin, who was looking at Fr. Luis, seemed to say to him, “You will soon be with me.”

    “The Happiest Day of My Life”. Fr. Luis left Garabandal in a jeep with friends that same night. Stopping at Cosio, he met the Parish Priest, Don Valentin Marichalar, to whom he said: “Don Valentin, what the children say is true, but I ask you not to repeat what I have just told you, for the Church can never be prudent enough in this kind of affair.” Fr. Marichalar wrote these words of Fr. Luis in a notebook that very night. Continuing his journey with Rafael Fontaneda and his family, Fr. Luis showed overwhelming joy the entire trip, constantly repeating: “I am so happy. What a favour the Blessed Virgin has bestowed on me. How fortunate we are to have a mother like her in heaven! There is no reason to fear the supernatural life. The girls have given us an example of how we must act with the Blessed Virgin. There is no doubt in my mind that the things involving the girls are true. Why should the Blessed Virgin have chosen us? This is the happiest day of my life.” As the car was passing through Reinosa, Fr. Luis, after repeating these words once again, lifted his head and fell silent. His friend Fontaneda asked him, “Father, are you all right?” “Yes, I am just sleepy.” Came the reply. Then his head bowed forward onto his chest. He made a slight coughing sound, and died. He experienced no pain, 2 nor death agony, but died with a smile on his lips. Fr. Luis died of joy at 4.30 am on August 9, the feast of St. John Vianney (The Cure of Ars), the patron and model of priests.
    Fr. Luis’ involvement in the Garabandal events did not end with his death. The girls often spoke with him after his death. Conchita relates in her Diary entry of August 16, 1961: “... at eight or nine o’clock in the evening, the Blessed Virgin … said to the four of us: ‘Father Luis will come now and speak with you.’ A moment later he came and called us one by one. We didn’t see him at all but only heard his voice. It was exactly like the one he had on earth. When he had spoken for a while, giving us advice, he told us certain things for his brother, Fr. Ramon Maria Andreu. He taught us some words in French, in German and in English, and he also taught us to pray in Greek.” Fr. Luis also sent a message through the girls to his mother. Fr. Luis’ sudden death was a great shock to his mother for Father had been in excellent health. On the day he died, she was packed and waiting for his return from Garabandal because together they were going to Germany. But, instead of seeing her son with his usual big smile, she received a death notice. Therefore, to console his mother, Fr. Luis sent, through the girls, this beautiful message: “Be happy and content, for I am in heaven and I see you every day.” A short time later Fr. Luis’ Mother realised her long-time ambition was to enter a convent. Fr. Luis was buried in the Jesuit cemetery in Ona, Spain. In a locution of July 18, 1964, the Blessed Virgin told Conchita that on the day after the Great Miracle to come, the body of Fr. Luis will be removed from the grave and will be found incorrupt, just as it was on the day he was buried.
    Reprinted with kind permission from GARABANDAL INTERNATIONAL / October-December 2011


    In 1977, impatient followers of this prophecy opened the tomb of Fr. Luis ( it had been moved from one cemetery to another. ) The question was presented to me many times, if they already dug up Fr. Luis Andreu’s body and it was decaying, does this negate the prophecy about he being found incorrupt ?
    Fr. Luis Andreu's corrupted body in NO WAY invalidates the prediction, why ? Conchita, in a letter dated August 2, 1964, wrote this to Father Ramon Andreu (his brother) “On July 18 (1964), I had a locution in which I was told that on the day after the miracle your brother (Fr. Luis Andreu) would be removed from his grave and his body would be intact.” SO infact, the Blessed Mother said it would be " THE DAY AFTER THE MIRACLE ", NOT BEFORE ! The prophecy is still valid until then.
    Consider this too, now that we know his body decayed, how much more of a greater miracle will it be when he is found incorrupt the day after the Miracle ?

    These are the words I was referencing,
    "We first must live our state in life"
    Thank you Sam

    This is truth Sam, thank you.
    But it is hard to accomplish, because we all live our life weighed down by the cares of the world and to overcome these weights takes supernatural strength.

    We are subjected to these weights daily, and it is a struggle to constantly overcome them! and only with the grace of our Lord can we do this.
    I am in the same boat as everyone else

    It is an ongoing battle

    Dear Fede
    This is amazing, I know that Conchita looked up the saint at the time of the apparitions, so it couldn't be Carlos Acutis but my heart sung when I read your post and I personally believe Blessed Carlo will have some important part to play in this great event! I don't know how or Why! But it makes sense to me.

    Maybe my heart is a little too happy about Carlo Acutis beautification, at the moment, and is unable to think straight . But wouldn't Carlo's involvement in the warning be beyond beautiful!

    God be blessed in His Angels and Saints. Amen

    “ I know of many cases of levitation that took place at Garabandal. Another levitation took place at the very small bridge — now gone — which was in front of the church. On that day, the brook that it crossed was full. The four girls, in ecstasy, were holding arms. The bridge was not wide enough to permit the passage of the four girls abreast, which is what they did nevertheless; one or two of them consequently had to pass outside of the bridge on the water, without, however getting their feet wet.
    “Memoirs of a Spanish Country Priest” by Father José Ramon Garcia de la Riva
    CHAPTER XIX “ Levitations” pg. 45 bridge 2.jpg

    The levitation over the bridge was not photographed, just witnessed. This is just a photo of where it happened.

    Wow, you made my day, Padraig. I know that given my age and health issues I will not be able to travel to Garabandal, but know I can thru videos posted by people like you, and this video is fantastic, you literally get a bird's eye view of where everything is.

    Muchas Gracias, amigo!

    While visiting Conchita on January 13,2021, we talked about a great many things, and in the course of talking about prayers she said something interesting that I have never heard of, or thought about. Each time we say the “ Hail Mary” we end the prayer by saying “ Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death, Amen.” She said when we say that prayer slowly, we are asking Mary repeatedly to pray for us at the hour of our death, and it is like putting a coin in our “Spiritual bank”, which accumulates for that hour !

    Wow! It never ceases to amaze me how she sees things through only “spiritual eyes”. Thank God we have such a wonderful example of humility and spiritual guidance.

    Conchita’s Diary note to Jesus
    From “Conchita’s Diary “ Chapter 14 (1963, age14 )

    “I would like to visit you more. I want to be your little light that calls and lights up for you and grows brighter to give light to souls that want to come where you are. I also want to be the part within the door of the tabernacle so I can be more united with You. I want to be so much, but I am nothing, nothing, nothing. But since I am the daughter of Mary, the Mother of God, I am redeemed with the Blood of Christ Crucified, and because of that I am something.”

    I note, I am already subscribed to this. A video from 99 Catholics must have already been posted. They came out with a video yesterday.

    Catholics have since been reminded by the Roman Hierarchy that the Garabandal apparitions are in no way forbidden and in no way approved by the Church. In the Garabandal Apparitions the visionaries learned about the Warning, the Miracle and the great Punishment or Chastisement.
    No endorsement nor rejection, just posting.

    I'm not thrilled about this video. I picked up several errors in a couple of minutes. (Didnt even finish watching it)
    Mary never said the Miracle is related to the sacrament of the Eucharist . They have the wrong dates for the Miracle too, its NOT 6-16th it's the 8-16th. They omitted many of the important clues for the Miracle Martyr . Other stuff too. VERY SLOPPY EFFORT. I DO NOT RECOMMNED THIS.
