On this Holy Thursday, probably, Conchita learned about the future “Senal,” the Sign which, right after the events of the “D” day, “will stay at the site of the Pines until the end of times, in the form of a luminous column, a kind of cloud by day and fire by night.” This phenomenon will symbolize, through its obvious biblical, ecclesial and eschatological connotations, the presence of God in the midst of His people, so enlightened and guided in its worldly journey towards the “Promised Land.” Who then would not see also that such a Sign will doubtless represent for the Jews themselves, at the beginning of this 21st century, as it were, a powerful and astonishing reminder of the Sinai Covenant and of its profound exigences? For “they are beloved (of God), for the sake of their ancestors; for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable” (Rom 1:28-29). Indeed, in this way, Garabandal will reveal, in a broader prophetic scope, the richness of what we call the “mystery of the Carmel” . . . of which we are still too unaware. That mystery, with its obvious link with the huge figure of the prophet Elijah, so dear to the Jews, obviously refers to the “mystery of the people of Israel” with whom Yahweh had concluded an

alliance in the past, but also to the whole People of God, the eschatological Israel.”

At the very spot where this prodigious “Senal” will emerge, a sanctuary will eventually be built in honor of the Archangel St. Michael, “Protector of the People of God.” We may also note that this great “Sign” will necessarily have a profound affinity with the very nature of the Miracle to come. It will not only be visible for everyone, but it will even be possible to photograph and televise, but not touch, such an extraordinary supernatural phenomenon.

Wow! I just learned something new! Of course I knew about the Great Sign and that is will be like the column of fire that led the Israelites across the desert, but I didn’t realize its connection with the possible conversion of the Jews and their acceptance of Jesus as the Messiah!
You know that St. Paul wrote about this in Romans Chapter 11, verse 25. He says: “Brothers, I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery lest you be conceited; blindness has come upon part of Israel until the full number of Gentiles enter in, and then all Israel will be SAVED.”

How about that! So the way I see it, after the Miracle, when everyone of us Gentiles are converted and safely in the Roman Catholic Church, the Jews, seeing the Great Sign of God, will also enter the Church as followers of Christ! Amen to that! This I’ve got to see!!!
