The road to Garabandal
So the push was on to go back to France to attend a conference
in Saint Remy-de-Provence, the birth place of Nostradamus, and
to go to Garabandal, to see the place. Then to try once again to get
into his house in Salon de Provence and see if my teacher left
something for me like he has said for the last 5 years, a definite
maybe. But the last push from September 11th was still fresh,
and I owed it to the dead to try, though I wanted to finish the book
and get on with spreading the story or something.
I'm getting used to going to France now, since this is the third time.
I enjoy going to Sacre Coure which is a large Basilica on a hill that
overlooks Paris, the mosaic on the ceiling is fabulous and depicts
the "heresy of Provence", which is the story of Mary Magdalene and
the jar she is holding on her womb. Jesus' left hand is pointing to a
line of French saints, the first 3 are in a boat, Mary M, Martha and
Lazarus. Mary is holding a large jar over her womb and the serpent
is at her feet looking up at the jar with its mouth open.
And the Dragon was wroth with the woman,
and went to make war with the remnant of her
seed, which keep the commandments of God,
and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
It just so happens that it is in the 17th chapter (17.10) the 7
kings are mentioned, you really have to love how interconnected the
story is. After Mass one day I had a private revelation, and while my
teacher was on a roll about the rest of the trip, I wasn't planning on much,
except seeing Garabandal and a few other spots, and check into
the publishing end of this deal. So after a few days in Paris it was
time to head south towards Spain with a stop in Lourdes on the way.
Though one afternoon I decided to go to the Bibliotheque national de
France, the main national Library in Paris. When I got to the gate
the gals asked what I wanted, which was to see an original copy
of the 1568 edition of "Les Propheties", by Michel Nostradamus.
She said there wasn't one there, but I assured her there was one
inside the building. Then she asked if I had a pass or card to get
in, no. Well then you can't go in. But after a few minutes of begging
she pointed to the door to let me be someone else's problem. I
wandered in and found a small room that looked like a place that
sold books and the 2 women in there asked what I wanted. After
I told them, one said she was positive that they didn't have one,
they did a little search through some records and said there
was not a copy there. I replayed the song and dance I had done
a few minutes before with the others and after awhile I got the
same response, she pointed to the other end of the building,
merci avour (thank you & good by). The first man I came across
at his desk spoke almost no English, but he got the gist of what
I wanted. He eventually got up and went into a back room where
he brought out a young attractive Black woman who spoke
English, "So what do you want?". So I told her about the book,
my childhood and the research. To which she just looked at me
like, sure kid. "You can't just waltz in here and see these
manuscripts, they are very rare and valuable, ... ." After she was
finished I tried to calm her down and said that is what I'm here
doing, seeing what I have to do to get in. I said if I had called
they would have just hung up on me. After asking a few more
times she finally gave in and gave me a pamphlet on the place
and the hoops you have to jump through to get in, merci avour.
As I left the man came over to have her fill him in on the crazy
American and what I wanted.
After driving around the US, everything is close in Europe. I rolled
into a small town on the north coast of Spain about 40 km from
Garabandal. There are no motels in Garabandal, which is a village
of around 100 homes at the end of the road up in the mountains.
It is in the Cantabria region (state/county), and is very picturesque,
but I wasn't there to see the sites, just to go and see what is going
on up at San Sebastian de Garabandal, and see if I could get some
more information on the Apparitions. First a little bit about them.
The first apparition was on June 18, 1961, and was an angel who
after a few more visits, told the 4 little girls, age 11 and 12, that on
July 2 the Blessed Virgin would appear to them. Over the next
several years there were over 1000 visits. They were documented
on film, in pictures and by many priests and doctors. On the night
of August 8, 1961, a Jesuit priest and theology professor, Fr. Luis
Maria Andreu was drawn into the apparition while watching the 4 girls
in ecstasy. He cried out, "miracle", several times, on the drive home
with friends he exclaimed, "What a wonderful present the Virgin has
given me. How lucky we are to have a mother like that in Heaven.
Today is the happiest day in my life." With that he bowed his head
and passed away, he was in good health and in his mid 30's. In a
later vision the girls were told he had seen the great miracle and
had died of joy, and that after the Miracle he will be exhumed and
found to be incorrupt.
The first message to the world was given on October 18, 1961.
It said that 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.
On July 19, 1962, a visible miracle happened which had been
announced in advance. Conchita was given communion by the
Arch Angel Michael, and when Conchita put out her tongue all
of a sudden a host appeared. There were many people around
her and one man had a movie camera and got some pictures
of the event.
Many doctors and psychiatrists examined the girls, both in and
out of ecstasy. Padre Pio, a stigmatic at the time also endorsed
the visions as real. Several of the doctors, who were leaders in
their fields, made written statements that there were no natural
explanations for the events.
A final message was given on June 18, 1965, which said that
since the previous message has been ignored, this will be the last
one. Before the cup was filling up, now it is full and overflowing.
Many Cardinals, Bishops, and priests are on the road to perdition,
and they are taking many souls with them. Less and less
importance is being given to the Eucharist. You should turn the
wrath of God away from you by your efforts. If you ask for His
forgiveness with a sincere heart, He will forgive you. I, your
mother, through the intercession of Michael the Archangel, ask
you to amend your lives. You are now receiving the last warnings.
I love you very much and do not want to see your condemnation.
Pray to us with sincerity and we will grant your requests. You
should make more sacrifices. Think about the passion of Jesus.
Three great supernatural events were prophesied at Garabandal.
The 1st is a global Warning to all of mankind. Everyone will feel
the warning from God, which will show you all the bad things you
have done in your life, and all the good we have failed to do. This
will happen less than a year before the Great Miracle.
Will be at the pines, a group of 9 pines a couple of hundred meters
above the village of Garabandal. It will happen between the 8th and
16th of March, April or May, on a Thursday at 8:30 PM. It will be
announced 8 days in advance by Conchita who knows the date
already. It will be on the feast day of a Martyr of the Eucharist and
will coincide with an event in the Church. You will be able to see the
Miracle from all around the valley. The sick will be cured, sinners
converted and the incredulous will believe. As a result Russia will
A permanent visible sign will be left at the pines, which you will be
able to photograph but not touch. There will be no doubt that it is
from God, and will remain there until the end of time.
If the world does not change, then God will send the Chastisement.
We don't want to know what it is.
