    The Bishop of the Tilly Diocese strongly condemned the apparitions as false and a fraud.

    Pope St Pius x said they were true. The Bishop had to apologise. Then the next Bishop condemned Tilly as false and a fraud. Pope St Pius x once again said they were true and the next Bishop was forced to withdraw and admit they were true.

    Does any of this sound familiar to you?

    I am reading the book on Fatima now. A priest from Mexico visited Sr Lucia and published a long interview with her.

    The Bishop in Coimbra (Fatima said it was all false)... Then two Archbishops in Mexico confirmed all that Sr Lucia was true. The Bishop of Coimbra was silenced.

    The Vatican said no more interviews with Sr Lucia, ever,ever,ever. They also said the Third Secret would never be revealed.

    This horrible kind of sneaky dishonest goings on go on involving priests,Bishops and Cardinals. Again and again Popes have to intervene to sort things out.

    This is why for instance Pope Benedict had to sent a special Papal Representative into Medugorje to take charge. The local Bishop has been so violently opposed to it all.

    You can set you clock on it. Ten minutes after Our Lady appears there will suddenly appear a stream of Bishop and Cardinals looking to bury it.

    The same goes with saints. Let a saint turn up somewhere I will guarantee there will be a Bishop of Cardinal not far behind trying their best to whack the poor saint on the back of the head with a baseball bat.

    The fact that both the President and Speaker of the House are Catholics who cognitively cannot function in a crisis, coupled with an incompetent Vice-President who is very inarticulate, translates into a leadership vacuum which China is ready to take advantage of. I believe China sees this moment of weakness as an opportunity to flex their muscles. The two horrific consequences of rejecting God: abortion and war (death and more death). :barefoot::eek::eek::cry::cry:

    Frightening but true.

    Lord have Mercy!

    Still reading slowly away the book and reading away at his account of Garabandal. It was nice reading his account of Garabandal as well as a recount of Our Lady of Good Success.

    One thing the children said about Our Lady of Mount Carmel at Garabandal which I found touching was that Our Lady was interested in their little every day goings on everyday and smiled and laughed with them . So Sweet.

    They mention two angels who appeared with Mary. One was St Michael and the other was not named. I am guessing this was St Gabriel who is Mary's in a particular way. These being two of the seven spirits who stand constantly in the presence of God.

    There is also a long account of Our Lady of Good Success. It's very clear that Our Lady is basically saying the same thing in all these apparitions. Of the need for conversion, with increasing urgency.

    We should also bear in mind the video about the current Chinese debt crisis which Padraig recently posted (on another, I think). This Ponzi scheme has the potential to dwarf the crash of 2008. There seem two possibilities if this economic crash occurs-the demise of the CCP or a desperate resort to war, often the historical reaction to such crises.

    Well, DeGaulle, in that case both China and the USA would meltdown together financially. Something huge has to happen if the NWO is to tie all the loose strings together.
    God gives us all enough rope to hang ourselves, but Jesus will intervene to ensure His Plan is the one which triumphs!

    Awesome Mercy and resplendent Truth so that God will be glorified!

    I have not read up on Garabandal for such a long time, now that I am doing so I am finding things I don't believe I ever knew before.

    A for instance I don;t recall ever hearing that the children sometimes actually Levitated during the apparitions in front of witnesses and that there where actual photos taken at the time.

    How amazing!

    But I came across a Prophesy from Our Lady about events we are going through and are about to go through right now which really took me up short. It appears to be a blow by blow description.

    Again amazing.

    Conchita;

    In spite of continuing to see the Virgin, we saw a great multitude of people who were suffering and screaming in terror. The Blessed Virgin explained to us that this Great Tribulation, which was not even the Chastisement, would come because a time would arrive when the Church was on the point of perishing. It would pass through a terrible trial. ..

    ..At a certain moment , not single motor or machine would work.....a terrible heat wave will strike the World and men will begin to feel a Great Thirst..emn will ebgin to kill each other.

    Then we saw a crowd in the midst of flames...the water began to boil...

    Wow!!

    I'm not the only one recalling Garabandal at the moment.

    Garabandal: Are the Prophecies About to be Fulfilled?

    [​IMG]

    A number of world events are coinciding in these times that seem to confirm that the fulfilment of the prophecies of Garabandal is at hand. In short, the prophecies refer to a period of tribulation for the world during which a Warning will be given to all of mankind simultaneously. Within a year of the Warning, a Miracle will occur in Garabandal which will leave a visible sign for all to see. Following the Miracle, if humanity still fails to turn to the Lord, there will be a fearful Chastisement on a global scale.

    In a moment, we will look at some pointers which indicate that the fulfilment of these prophecies is imminent. One of the most ominous of these is a statement by visionary, Mari-Loli, who said that Our Lady had revealed that the Warning would occur at a time when “Russia will suddenly and unexpectedly overrun a great part of the free world”. After the fall of the USSR in 1991, many people thought that such a prediction had become farfetched. Yet, as we watch, Russia has launched an unprovoked invasion on one of the largest countries in Europe, almost precipitating a global disaster with their reckless bombing of an enormous nuclear reactor on the night of March 3rd.

    The Visions of Garabandal, 1961-65
    Between 1961 and 1965, four girls in the hamlet of Garabandal in northern Spain claimed to have seen Our Lady thousands of times. Though the apparitions were never formally approved by the Church, the visions were accompanied by a vast number of phenomena that defy natural explanation. These include levitations, ecstatic marches, reading of thoughts, insensitivity to pain, locutions, healings, and supernatural knowledge. Medical professionals, including doctors and psychiatrists, witnessed an enormous multitude of such events and testified to them in writing.

    While it seemed very clear to the onlookers in Garabandal that something other-worldly was happening, the local diocese of Santander took a very negative approach to the events. Fr. Jose Luis Saavedra, a priest of the order of the Home of the Mother, has done his doctoral dissertation on the apparitions in Garabandal. He found that the investigation of the visions carried out by the local diocese did not follow standard norms of impartiality. The original “investigation” seemed intent on discrediting the visions out of fear of possible negative repercussions for the Church. Then, sensationally, in May 1983, Dr. Luis Morales Noriega, the medical expert for the diocesan investigation, retracted his previously negative opinion and acknowledged the authenticity of the apparitions. To everyone’s surprise, after years of negativity from the local ecclesiastical authorities, Dr Morales stated that his new positive declaration was made with the permission of the bishop of Santander.

    Messages of Garabandal
    Unlike Medjugorje, the messages of Garabandal are very few in number. The first message was read aloud by the girls on October 18, 1961: “We must make many sacrifices, perform much penance, and visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently. But first, we must lead good lives. If we do not, a chastisement will befall us. The cup is already filling up, and if we do not change, a very great chastisement will come upon us.”

    The second message from Our Lady, announced on June 18, 1965, was received by Conchita González alone: “As my Message of the 18th of October has not been complied with, and as it has not been made known to the world, I am telling you that this is the last one. Previously, the Cup was filling; now, it is brimming over. Many cardinals, bishops, and priests are following the road to perdition, and with them, they are taking many more souls. Even less importance is being given to the Holy Eucharist. We should turn the wrath of God away from us by our own efforts. If you ask His forgiveness with a sincere heart, He will pardon you.”

    Many people at the time rejected this second message as being entirely implausible. How could Our Lady, of all people, claim that cardinals, bishops, and priests were on the road to damnation? From our perspective of sixty years later, however, we can see that this message contained a prophetic truth that would never have been suspected in the 1960s. The Church has been rocked in recent decades by the revelations of the evil abuses perpetrated by bishops and priests alike. No one foresaw this possibility in 1965, leading many to dismiss Conchita’s announcement as a human fabrication.

    The Prophecies of Garabandal
    According to the visionaries, after a period of tribulation, the Warning and Miracle will occur in the same year. Conchita has described the Warning as a “correction of conscience” during which everyone in the world will be given a revelation of the state of their souls before God. We will see the consequences of our sins and will feel sorrow for them. The Warning will be a moment of great grace for mankind, a true penetration of the Holy Spirit into our inmost hearts, but it will be a traumatic event when we recognize the gravity of our sins and our distance from God.

    The Miracle will take place in Garabandal within a year of the Warning. Our Lady has revealed the date to Conchita, who will announce it eight days in advance. In 1971, while talking to a group of Americans, she offered this revealing information: “It will take place on or between the eighth and sixteenth of March, April or May. It will not happen in February or June. It will be on a Thursday at 8:30 p.m. It will coincide with a great ecclesiastical event in the Church. It will be on the Feast-day of a young martyred saint of the Eucharist.”

    Following the Miracle, humanity will have the opportunity to amend its ways and return to the Lord. If humanity continues to pursue the godless materialism that we are currently pursuing, then a terrible Chastisement will fall on the world.

    Indications that the events are at hand
    Apart from the specific indications given by Conchita regarding the date of the Miracle, the visionaries made a number of other statements about the fulfilment of the prophecies (details can be found online at various websites such as www.garabandal.org and http://www.garabandal.ie/our-ladys-prophesies/).

    The prophecies will be fulfilled at the time of an important Synod
    Our Lady told Conchita that the prophecies would come to pass at a time when an important Synod was being held in the Church. This fact has been transmitted reliably to us by Mother Nieves Garcia, head of Conchita’s boarding school in the aftermath of the visions. In an interview, Mother Nieves Garcia stated that the Virgin told Conchita that an important Synod will be held just before the events take place. When Conchita confided the story to her aunt about 1962, the aunt asked, “Do you refer to a council?” (the Vatican Council was just beginning at this time). Conchita replied, “No, the Virgin didn’t say the council, she said Synod, and I think Synod is a small council.” As Mother Nieves Garcia remarked, nobody had even heard of a Synod in the early 1960s; it seems impossible that a twelve-year-old girl could talk about something so new in the life of the Church; in addition, Conchita defined the Synod quite accurately as a “small council”.

    Pope Paul VI established the Synod of Bishops in September 1965, just two months before the final apparition in Garabandal. Since that time, the Synod has met every few years. Evidently, Our Lady was not referring to one of these regular gatherings of the Synod. After all, a revelation that a prophecy will come to pass on a year in which a regularly scheduled event occurs is hardly a revelation at all. But Conchita was told that the Synod in question would be an “important” one, and the current Synod on Synodality is certainly that. For the first time ever, it will be a Synod with a worldwide dimension. Every diocese is inviting its faithful to participate. The level of consultation and dialogue will be on a scale never seen before in the history of the Church. The process has already begun, will continue during various phases over the coming months, and culminate next year in Rome. Since the Synod of Bishops was instituted in 1965, there has been no other more likely candidate for the “important Synod” that – in the words of Mother Nieves Garcia – would constitute a “pre-Warning”.

    After the Pontificate of Pope Benedict XVI
    On June 3, 1963, as Conchita made her way to the church to pray for the soul of Pope John XXIII who had just died, she heard the voice of Our Lady saying, “After this pope, there are only three left. Then it will be the end of times.” Soon after, the Virgin Mary specified to Conchita that there would also be a fourth pope who would “govern the Church for a very short time”. This last prediction is remarkable because it was fulfilled in the thirty-three-day papacy of John Paul I, thus supporting the reliability of the rest of the prophecy of the popes from Our Lady. In fact, the short pontificate of John Paul I can be taken as a sign that the first affirmation of Our Lady is also true: that after the third pope (Benecict XVI), the end of times will begin.

    Many commentators have discussed the meaning of “end of times”. As Fr. José Luis Saavedra remarks, we have no reason to think that the world will cease to exist, or that there will be no more popes after this time. Rather, the Church will enter the decisive period of her history in which the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph, as foretold at Fatima.

    Sacred Scriptures is absolute surety that a forthcoming new Earth is promised to us by God.

    Perhaps:

    "we have no reason to think that the world will cease to exist"

    ..at this time?

    Scripture reminding us that no one, even God's Holy Angels know the day or the hour:

    Matthew 24:36

    35Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away. 36 No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 37As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be at the coming of the Son of Man.…


    Scripture also reminds us that it will be at an hour of huge evil.

    Modern Marian apparitions (Including Garabandal) appear to indicate a period of suffering like, but not the same, as those at the End of the World. The Tribulation/Chastisement.

    Matthew 24:21

    For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

    675 Before Christ's second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the "mystery of iniquity" in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.

    It's the end of a period of time, an era, but not the end of the world. Many Catholic prophecies foretell of an Angelic Pope and a Great Monarch who are coming.
