From Bastiano :

Being currently in Garabandal, I wanted to meet Father Rolando after the broadcast of an alleged article from the Bishop of Santander about Garabandal apparitions with its procession prohibited.

Questioning Father  Rolando about it in the sacristy of the church of Garabandal, below in summary, his answers to my questions  :

  1. 1. What has been circulated in the Cantabrian newspaper does not come from the Bishop, those are the allegations of the journalist only

  2. No prohibition in Garabandal, pilgrimages can still take place, and accompanying priests can celebrate the Mass in the Church as before and after informing Father Rolando like always

  3.The apparitions are still under the following statement: No Constat de Supernaturalite.

My Comment : Good news from Bastiano who is currently in Garabandal and also a member of the Piligrims Garabandal Center, these news détails from the Garabandal Priest himself totaly refutes the shameful allegations from this Journalist in question of the Cantabrian Newspaper, so let’s Pray also for him, thank you.



I have received this email regarding the article posted last week.

Dear Brothers in the Faith:
Given the many questions that have recently come to the Center through various means regarding the veracity of the articles recently published in the newspaper, “El Diario Montañés,” that have direct or indirect reference to the events of Garabandal, we see the need to clarify the following:
1. No official document of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Santander has imposed new restrictions.
2. The letter dated June 24, 2015 written by Bishop Manuel Sánchez Monge referred to in the newspaper article contains the same information from a letter written by Bishop José Vilaplana Blasco dated November 7, 2001.
3. We have no evidence the journalist wrote those words on behalf of the diocese or the pastor are true.
4. There is no new official letter from Bishop Manuel Sánchez Monge making any changes at all with what was previously written.
5. Within published articles, many faults or assertions of truth can occur and these can lead to confusion.
We believe, at this time, it is better not to dwell on these issues and not enter into discussions that lead nowhere. We try to be good Christians, follow the Gospel and fulfill the messages given to us by the Blessed Virgin.
Prayers in Union,
Jose Sanchez

I just received this communication from Tom Fahy, who is in Garabandal, doing some construction. Notice he says nothing about the so-called restrictions imposed by the local Bishop.

Dear Readers,
FINALLY!!  I have email capability after several weeks.
I am writing from Garabandal, where I have been since late September.
Kathy and Ann Ellison are here, and Chris Flugel is with us, too.
Jerry and Gail Lawson have been handling operations back at the Center for the Divine Will in Tennessee.
Here in Garabandal we are in the process of constructing the Grotto for Our Lady that we have been wanting to construct since the opening of the House of Sanctification
here in Garabandal on June 1, 2000.  We are also preparing a passage way to the property behind the House of Sanctification so that vehicles can to it.  That property
is several feet abruptly higher than the front property.
Considerable earth removal has been necessary for both the Grotto and the passage way, requiring heavy equipment.
The Grotto will be approximately 40 square meters directly in front of the House of Sanctification on the right (as one faces the House). The Grotto will have stone walls,
one of which is almost completed.
We have never been able to undertake these projects, and had no plans to do so this year, but suddenly circumstances surprised us when a contractor friend of ours here
in Garabandal arranged for some heavy equipment and workers to begin these projects at a reasonable cost.
But we have had unexpected, lengthy delays, mostly due to problems with the heavy equipment.
I am attaching a couple of pictures related to these projects.  In one of the pictures, you will see the white van we very gratefully obtained last year with your donated support.
We have also done a lot of land clearing. The front of the property had gotten overgrown with unwanted vegetation and the rear property had been neglected for many years,
where at least 100 small diameter trees had grown on the west side of that area. Chris Flugel has done a great job in clearing these trees opening it up to the sunlight, for possible
gardening in the future.  All those trees are lying there waiting to be cut into firewood.
In spite of limited news availability over the past several weeks, we have been able to be informed about the October Synod in Rome, and to a limited measure we have
been informed about world events. Now, with the recently obtained Internet service at the House of Sanctification, we are getting more news.
It seems that the only good news, though, is that the General Reign of the Divine Will is getting closer for the Glory of God, as this sorry world (not the beautiful planet) goes through its pitiful demise.
There are many signs that major events predicted at Fatima and Garabandal are very imminent. These painful events, and the happy ones also, are necessary to prepare the way for the
General Reign of the Divine Will on Earth as in Heaven.
One good aspect of being without Internet service, is having more time to study Luisa´s writings. I hope to share with you some beautiful “pearls” of the Divine Will in the near future.
Also, I will be sending you very soon all the information you will need for getting copies of the New, OFFICIAL BIOGRAPHY OF LUISA, published in ENGLISH by the Vatican Press.
Our Center for the Divine Will will be involved in distributing this Official Biography. I have read parts of the Italian version and was amazed to learn things about Luisa that I had not
known about her during the past 42 years of studying her life and writings.

Garabandal & Akita

Posted: November 12, 2015 in Uncategorized

Garabandal – Spain

    “Cardinals, Bishops And Priests Going The Wrong Way And Less
And Less Importance Is Being Given To The Eucharist.”

    How is it that opponents of Garabandal can so easily dismiss the truth of the apparitions when they have been able to see for themselves the accurate foretelling of coming trends contained in the second Message delivered by St Michael on Our Lady’s behalf, to Conchita on June 18, 1965?

“Many Cardinals, Many Bishops And Many Priests Are On The Road To Perdition And Taking Many Souls With Them.” Two points are worth making with regard to this statement. The first is that Conchita neither could nor would have made a statement like this on her own because of the profound respect she had for members of the hierarchy. The second point is the timing of the Message which came a few months before the last session of Vatican II.

Was it a warning to those Fathers who had gone into the Council with their own agenda for sweeping change? “Less And Less Importance Is Being Given To The Eucharist.”

Conchita 1962
Miracle of The Host

Here again is a statement that could not possibly be attributed to Conchita Gonzalez. How could she have known of this trend on her own when no one in the Church really recognised it as a problem?

After the Council we saw an unprecedented dismantling of Eucharistic devotion whose effects are still with us today. But even before the Council, there was movement in this direction. In the 1952 edition of the traditional Mass missal, one finds an octave for the rest of Corpus Christi. By 1961, the octave had been suppressed. The positioning of the statement that “Less And Less Importance Is Being Given To The Eucharist” in the Message should not be overlooked. It comes right after the sentence regarding Cardinals, Bishops and Priests. The hierarchy is custodian of the Holy Eucharist.

If the Church must undergo a trial by fire, one of the principal reasons might well be because of what has been allowed to happen to the Holy Eucharist. The very next sentence in the Message after reference to the downgrading of the Eucharist reads: “You Should Turn The Wrath Of God Away From Yourselves By Your Efforts.”

Akita – Japan

Sr Agnes Sasagawa

On October 13, 1973, Our Lady of Akita
Gave The Third Message To Sister Agnes Sasagawa.


    “My Daughter, listen well to what I have to say to you. You will inform your superior.”

After a short silence: “As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither Priests nor “faithful.”

“The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be The Rosary and The Sign Left by My Son. Each day recite the Prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary, Pray for the Pope, the Bishops and Priests.”

    “The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see Cardinals opposing Cardinals, Bishops against Bishops. The Priests who Venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres (other Priests); churches and altars will be sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many Priests and Consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.”

“The demon will be especially implacable against Souls Consecrated to God. The Thought Of The Loss Of So Many Souls Is The Cause Of My Sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them. With courage, speak to your superior. He will know how to encourage each one of you to pray and to accomplish works of reparation. It is Bishop Ito, who directs your community.” Our Lady smiled and then said;

“You have still something to ask? Today is the last time that I will speak to you in living voice. From now on you will obey the one sent to you and your Superior.”
“Pray Very Much The Prayers Of The Rosary. I alone am able still to save you from the calamities which approach. Those who place their confidence in me will be saved.”

Approved by Bishop Ito
Bishop John Ito, on April 22, 1984, after eight years of investigating the Akita apparitions and after consulting with the Holy See (including Cardinal Ratzinger), approved the messages of Our Lady of Akita. He authorised, throughout his Entire Diocese, the Veneration of our Holy Mother of Akita. A dossier was turned over to Cardinal Ratzinger at the Vatican who, after studying it for himself, reaffirmed that the events were credible and reliable and worthy of belief by all Catholics. Howard Dee, former Philippine Ambassador to the Vatican, said in a 1998 interview with Inside the Vatican magazine: “Bishop Ito (the local Bishop, now deceased) was certain Akita was an extension of Fatima, and Cardinal Ratzinger personally confirmed to me that these two messages, of Fatima and Akita, are essentially the same.” Part of the Akita message reads: “The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see Cardinals opposing Cardinals, Bishops against Bishops.”

Tribulation Times

November 4, 2015

(Isa 46:9-11) Remember the former age, for I am God, and there is no God beside, neither is there the like to me: Who shew from the beginning the things that shall be at last, and from ancient times the things that as yet are not done, saying: My counsel shall stand, and all my will shall be done: Who call a bird from the east, and from a far country the man of my own will, and I have spoken, and will bring it to pass: I have created, and I will do it.

OPINION: The Warning coming soon?

EXCERPTExpectations for the Coming Months of 2015-2016 by Thomas Fahy, September 10, 2015

What about the Last Four Months of 2015?

The only thing that I am aware of from the more highly credible sources, namely in this case, from the apparitions to the young, uneducated children of Garabandal, particularly Conchita, is what she was told by the Virgin Mary: that there would come an Important Synod, after which would come the Warning to the whole human race on earth. It seems to me that the upcoming synod on the family, October 4 to October 25, 2015 is that “Important Synod” after which will come the Warning. However, we also know from the Garabandal apparitions that the Communist Tribulation, led by Russia is to come before the Warning. In addition, Our Lady told Conchita that the Pope would go to Russia, to Moscow and that upon his return to Rome (or on the way) the Communist Tribulation would begin “suddenly and unexpectedly.”

The purpose of the Pope going to Russia, to Moscow would be to meet with the Orthodox Patriarch. Patriarch Kirill is the present Patriarch of

English: Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and all Ru...

English: Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and all Russia, 2011 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Moscow and all Russia. His subordinate is Archbishop and Metropolitan Hilarion. Last June (2015) Putin went to the Vatican to meet Pope Francis. Also in June, Archbishop Hilarion went twice to meet with Pope Francis. These meetings between Hilarion and Pope Francis involved the preparations between Patriarch Kirill and Pope Francis, supposedly in a neutral location. No date has been set as far as I know. Even if they do meet in a neutral place, the Pope may still visit Moscow. The prediction about the Pope visit to Moscow also includes the immediate, ‘Sudden and Unexpected” beginning of the Tribulation of Communism.

It seems to me that if it is to be that 2016 is the year of the Warning and Miracle, then the upcoming October synod is the Important Synod predicted at Garabandal. If so, then it would be reasonable to expect the Communist Tribulation to begin at some point in 2015 after the Synod closes on October 25. If not, it would seem that 2016 is not the year of the Warning and Miracle, unless God has accepted the prayers and voluntary sufferings of some soul, or souls, and has released us from this much deserved punishment.

As far as the rest of September and October, 2015 and beyond, we hear many, many reports of Economic and Financial upheaval to come in these months and of dire social consequences. Most of these warnings are coming from secular sources. Some sources are from the spiritual realm. The ones that I am familiar with, from the spiritual realm, do not fit in the category of the higher degrees of certainty. These sources of lesser degrees of certainty may have points that prove to be true and should not be summarily discounted.

The Desert Fathers: sayings of the Early Christian Monks: Charity

15. One of the fathers said, ‘If anyone asks you for something, and you give it to him, even if you are forced to give it, let your heart go with the gift, as it is written, “If a man forces you to go with him one mile, go with him two” (Matt. 5:41). This means that if you are asked for anything, give it with a willing heart.’
