I just received this info: recently certain restrictions have begun in the village of Garabandal, restrictions imposed by the new Bishop of Santander Msgr Monge, appointed by Pope Francis in May 2015, as below :

Prohibition of any Mass at the Pines or at the St Michael Chapel
Prohibition to talk about the Appartions of our Lady of Mount Carmel in the village of Garabandal
Prohibition to any Priests to come in Garabandal as a representative of the Church except privately
Prohibition in the village of Garabandal of any religious manifestation in connection with the Apparitions.
The New Bishop Msgr Monge refused also to bless the new center of the Apparitions, opened recently as he imposed a strict control on its website.

    The gas resistant baby carriage in rare photos highlights the poisonous environment we are bringing our children up in.My wife is having a baby boy,i am overjoyed but fear the terrible world for males he will have to endure.I like the pope hes a universalist but i dont like the CIA ISIS PUTAN MONARCHIST FREEMASONRY ALLIANCE it all smacks of a two class new world order agenda.What arent you telling us.The pope doesnt disapprove visions for no reason at all.What is the reason behind the reason.We have to maintain the vision we cannot let the enemy within destroy it

  2. Stephen Browning says:

    How could three saints be wrong about their belief in the Apparitions of Our Lady of Mount Carmel at San Sebastian de Garabandal, Spain: Blessed Paul VI,
    Padre Saint Pio, and Blessed Teresa of Calcutta?

    • Glenn Hudson says:

      Don’t forget Saint John Paul II ! They are not wrong. Everyone knows the first bishop got exposed trying to run a fraudulent “investigation”. That is why the Vatican NEVER received a report from him, he could not back up his lies with any proof !

    • I agree with Stephen. I knew the visionary, Mari-Loli. I met her in Brockton, MA when she first came to the U.S. I am absolutely convinced the visions were authentic. She suffered terribly, and never complained. I talked to her shortly before she died and she was so joyful and had such peace.

    • Saoirse says:

      Garabandol cannot be stopped as Garabandol IS from G_d.
      the Purposes of G_d cannot be stopped

      Acts 5:39

    • I agree. I knew Mari-Loli. She was a saint — so humble. If you remember, Cardinal Law forbade the faithful from going to Betania II? Does anyone know the bishop’s reasons?

  3. Stephen Browning says:

    How can the Church fail to recognize the
    supernatural events during the apparitions
    of Our Lady of Mount Carmel at San Sebastián
    de Garabandal, Spain; when Blessed Paul VI,
    Padre Saint Pio, and Blessed Teresa of Calcutta;
    all three believed in the authenticity of the

  4. Glenn H says:

    The Bishop does not have Civil Authority to tell the whole town they can not speak about the apparitions to begin with. I heard the translations was “priests” could not talk about it, which makes more sense.

    • Pam Nicholson says:

      It is a question of our obedience to the teaching branch of our church whether we agree or disagree with a bishop as to his decisions based on what he has seen so far, and we must take into consideration the fact that he is “new”, so he will have to prayerfully and dutifully take his time on all the evidence, facts, etc., related to the apparitions and the messages from that early time of 1961, I think it was. It is for us to remain faithful whether we agree with the findings or not, and we must not be sour about this obedience. Let us be humble and obedient. Give these things time. I know that it was reported that St. Pio of Pietrelcina said something positive about Garabandal, but, he would tell you to remain humble and obedient until a final decision can be made by this new bishop. This is strict catholic teaching as to our behavior in these matters, or we can become our own pope. Which will it be?

      • Ann says:

        Remember that St. Padre Pio was silenced for a considerable length of time: he could not say Mass publicly, nor hear Confession. Eventually the truth won and he was again allowed to function as a priest.

  5. Glenn H says:

    The Bishop does not have the Civil Authority to restrict free speech for the town, to begin with. Second , I am waiting for a verified translation because I heard it was “priests” who were restricted, not the whole town, which makes more sense.

  6. Julia says:

    I understand it is normal protocol to put restrictions in sites of apparitions that will protect against cult type following which would not be proper for any Catholic to get involved in.

    Don’t misunderstand me. I am one who believes Garabandal is a place where Blessed Mother appeared, and believe when the prophesies told there take place, the validity will be established, and accepted by the Church.

  7. Glenn Hudson says:

    I am checking on this translation from Spanish to English ,because I was first told that “priests” could not talk about the apparitions, not the whole town. The Bishop doesn’t have the “Civil authority” to ban talking about it.

  8. Glenn Hudson says:

    “The bishop forbids priests to talk about the apparitions in Garabandal”

  9. SteveZ says:

    Padre Pio reportedly told Joey Lomangino that his vision would be restored at the Miracle. But Joey has passed away.

    • peasant says:

      I believe the actual wording was that Joey Lomangino would see the Miracle prophesied to occur at the pines within one year after the Great Warning or Illumination of Conscience “with new eyes”. I believe that were he has gone he has now received “new eyes”.

    • cathryn7 says:

      Well, his eyes are perfect, now, in purgatory or heaven

  10. Beatrice pedeaza says:

    Pope Francis. Please , do not allow this to happen!

  11. Judy Curran says:

    When we went there, we were told that when the Miracle happens, there would be very few people there, because of something happening in the church which would keep people away…..This was from one of the visionaries…. Maybe not long to wait now.

    • Glenn Hudson says:

      Yes, On December 6, 1962,Conchita had a 90 minute ecstasy around 5:30 in the afternoon after which, she provided information regarding the Miracle: One day, before the Miracle, something will happen that will cause many people to stop believing in the apparitions of Garabandal. The doubts and desertions will not be due to an excessive delay of the Miracle.

      • cathryn7 says:

        Didn’t they say that people would fail to believe in the apparitions before Conchita had that ecstasy? (in her book)

  12. Elias Attea says:

    like says in the Bible if it from God He will show the truth and the truth shall set you free,also God has his ways to prove something like at Russia converted

  13. Maggie says:

    I don’t know much about Garabandal …i am waiting for Medjugorje to be approved ….while waiting for Both apparitions to be approved ,it is best to focus on prayers, fasting and conversion …too many people are obsessed with apparitions !!!!!! makes the church nervous …..Our Lady Queen of peace, pray for us

  14. vicki says:

    It really disturbs me that the priests, bishops etc put these restrictions down like this. We are always told believe, believe have faith but when it comes to apparitions the church thinks they rule everybody. The church wonders why they are losing their members

    • Glenn Hudson says:

      The Blessed Mother’s message on June 18, 1965– “As my message of October 18 has not been complied with and has not been made known to the world, I am advising you that this is the last one. Before, the cup was filling up. Now it is flowing over. Many cardinals, many bishops and many priests are on the road to perdition and are taking many souls with them.

  15. Haraldo Lourenco says:

    There is No Doubt here that the Apparitions of Our Lady of Garabandal are Authentic, She has touched us all. and Her Supporters Blessed PAUL VI , Padre PIO, MOTHER THERESA.. are the Ones to Support her Visions and Messages,which will be Proved shortly,do not await a Calamity to Occur on Humanity by disbelieving Her Messages and bringing the Wrath of God Upon Humanity.

    • cathryn7 says:

      I received a new conversion, and love for Our Blessed Mother, reading about the apparitions of Garabandal, so I know they are real. It cemented me into the Catholic Faith.

  16. Paul white says:

    I donot how to understand what is going on with these negative decisions, this event is part of our catholic faith plain and simple. Our leaders have become politicized not good

  17. michael g. batcho says:

    I find the new attitude of “restriction / constriction” a sad development. . but it comes with the ever growing loss of the sense of the mystical and the mystery that is the reality of God and of “the faith” . .

  18. Richard says:

    Didn’t the Portugese Bishops order the faithful to stay away from Fatima? No one would have been present for the miracle! Didn’t Our Lady say the miracle would have been even more spectacular if not so strongly opposed?

  19. a redeemed son of Jesus and Mary says:

    I believe it is not fair to place so many restrictions, but I also realise the bishop’s caution for these reasons: several predictions associated with the Garabandal seers did not happen as they said: It was allegedly prophesied that Joey Lamangino would recover his sight. This may be seen by the Church as one failed prediction. Two, it was prophesied that Fr. Andre would be found incorrupt after the miracle. Fr. Andre’s body was exhumed and found to be corrupt. If this prophesy is to be fulfilled it means his body would have to be re-exhumed after the miracle and be found incorrupt. One may argue nothing is impossible with God. Three, it was prophesied that there would be three more Pope a before the end (of time, not end of the world), and now we are into the fourth Ope since this prophesy was made. It may be argued that the third Pope is still alive and technically the prophesy is still true. Because of the above I can understand the bishop’s hesitation. I do not however agree with the bishop’s hard restrictions. I mean, if there was a sect or a cult forming among the people in Garabandal and and memorabilia being sold to make a business off of these alleged apparitions and messages, sure I can see the need for restrictions. But this does not appear to be the case or reason for the bishop’s restrictions. Until the bishop actually tells us, as we deserve to know, WHY he has placed these restrictions, we are left to guessing wy on earth he has chosen this path.

  20. jerry says:

    i think the devil is at work. we need to pray our rosary.

  21. Joseph says:

    I think that the restrictions or even the denials of the apparitions are the fulfillment of prophecies from Garabandal itself. Our Mother knew ahead of time, as usual, what would happen. Anytime, there are warnings of clerics loosing the faith, especially from the top, restrictions, denials, or even bans are to be expected. The Devils likes to prevent the truth to be revealed or spread. Remember the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary that has not been done to this day. So many people have been brainwashed to believe that it was done. Is the Mother of God a liar? This is a direct intervention of the ennemy. We need to pray more than ever. But the truth always wiins at the end. The Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph regardeless of Church cooperation or not at this time.Keep the faith. The future will tell sooner enough.

  22. Gina says:

    Fatima was discouraged, Akita Japan apparitions to Sister Sasagawa was suppressed and yet finally fully accepted by the Vatican, but is still suppressed with the same messages of Fatima. You will see that Garabandal and Medgujorie will also be accepted. Satan is in his final stages–and he will do anything to suppress and cause doubts in Mary’s messages. Remember the restrictions are not dogmas of faith, Whether we want to believe it or not Satan has invaded the Vatican as well as trying to take over God’s world. Mary did say at Garabandal that something would happen to turn the faithful away from the miracle. Never forget that the Priests and Pope are human and they too can be wrong. Sts. Teresa of Calcutta, St. Paul Vi, St. John Paul II, and St. Pio all believed in Garabandal. Don’t think they made any mistake. Pray more—one rosary is no longer enough. We need prayers of reparation to Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary. and for the suffering souls in our world. Just look at the mess of our world. Do we really doubt that the violence around us is not the work of the evil one? Open your eyes and follow Jesus and Mary to the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Our MOther. St. Michael, pray for us and guide us with the Holy Spirit.

  23. J.O. says:

    “Prohibition to talk…”: So, there are already real communists infiltrated in our Church? Prohibition to talk? He can’t be serious! That’s a joke. What’s next? Prohibition to hear?

  24. celia carvell says:

    Saint Padre Pio stated that the apparitions were authentic and encouraged people to go there. Our Lady said Joey would see with new eyes but never said he would regain his sight in this world. Saint Padre Pio said many would believe when it is too late. I myself have been fortunate to have been there on a pilgrimage. The book with I have read with details of St Padre Pio is very good. It is called , The Apparitions of Garabandal by F. Sanchez-Ventura Y Pascual. The vision of Our Lady was also with The Brown Scapular and as Our Lady is requesting prayers of The Rosary I do not know why any good holy catholic priest would be against wanting official pilgrimages there.

  25. […] November 9, 2015 in Uncategorized 31 Friends, keep praying for the fulfillment of the Garabandal […]

  26. I met Mari-Loli when she moved from Spain to Brockton, MA. My sister taught her English. I am absolutely convinced the visions are authentic. She was very holy — a real saint. I talked to her shortly before she died. She was so joyful and full of peace. I asked her about the warning several times. She always said that if we prayed the rosary and did what Our Lady requested, we had nothing to worry about. “Time will tell where wisdom lies.” The church was against St. Pio and Venerable Solanus Casey. And look where they are.

  27. Mark Anthony says:

    To the Bishop, you have the right to give all the instructions you gave EXCEPT: Talking about the apparitions. I lived in Spain for 4 years and it is a democracy and the faithful HAVE THE RIGHT to talk about the apparitions. I pray you will reflect on this order. May God bless you.

    • Ian Sutherland, New Zealand says:

      Would the Bishop please stand up, and explain the reasoning behind his decrees. He is attempting to instruct the public in a democracy. He must be prepared to give the justification for such directions. What counsel has he sought? He has made such a profound series of instructions that he cannot now hide behind the claim “I am the Bishop, and that is my authority to say what I have said”.

  28. Who care what he says, I’ve been there with my family and we met Mari Lolie, we thought it to be a holy place.

  29. jane says:

    I attended Joey Lomangino’s wake service as I work at the funeral home where he was laid out. His state of peacefulness was extraordinary and being a true believer in the Garabandal messages his “new eyes” were probably restored at the moment of his death if not shortly before…we won’t know this for sure BUT we all concur that Satan is in his final days and The Warning is on the horizon with the messages soon to be fulfilled. Let’s stick together and stay strong as these restrictions confirm the authenticity of Garbandal. Btw, you all left great comments!!

  30. Bob says:

    Just like the Vatican NEVER released the ENTIRE and TRUE 3rd Secret of Fatima. They are now trying to silence the apparitions at Garabandal. As Pope Paul 6th once said” the smoke of satan has entered thru the walls of the church”. Our Lady warned at Fatima “nations will be annihilated etc”. The Consecration of Russia by the Pope and ALL the bishops has not been performed. THEREFORE there will be NO peace. Just look at the condition of the world.

  31. Peter Boyes says:

    Some 36 years ago I watched a BBC program called Everyman. The topic was Garabandal, I was 19. It’s on YouTube. What I saw and listened to both chilled me to the bone and ingnited my curiosity. A cradle Catholic my faith was without depth, simply that of following my parents wishes, it was not my own but theirs. Having listened to Conchita and testomonies of others I distnctly remember the thought that God was not only real but actively intervening in human history and in a tangible and evidential manor. I saw my self for the first time and recognised my behaviour as leading me to perdition, and yes this frightened me. So I went to church every night on the way home from work and alone in the dark prayed the rosary, I read the bible, I tried to make little sacrifices and acts of mortification. As a result my friends and work colleagues noted a change in my attitude, my interests and outlook on life. Some said nothing, one or two were themselves curious but too many simply saw an opportunity for ridicule and wit. Over time with grace and perseverance what began from fear became acts of love. I actually fell in love with God and felt Loved by Him, a Love no words can express. My life and faith has had many ups and downs but always the Grace of God’s love expressed in the Scriptures and by the Virgin to the world at Garabandal have been my companion. Surely, even if one soul is converted and that was was even me the evidence of such means God’s grace and rule is at work. Remember a house can not stand if it is divided, Satan would not act so as to convert even one soul to love God! I say remain steadfast, remain confident, remain obedient to our Church, all is shrouded in mystery and yet to be understood, but all will come to pass concerning Garabandal just as God desires

    • Thank you for your witness! My life changed too after learning about the Apparitions of Garabandal. God bless+

      • Cathryn Lang says:

        I am a Catholic Convert. I found out about Garabandal in 1974 or 1975, I feel like I had an awakening and a conversion experience from reading about Garabandal. I was in awe. I felt like Our Blessed Mother Mary taught me the catechism in depth. I learned to appreciate holy water. I learned how our Blessed Mother knows the marks of grace upon sacramentals.I learned more about Saint Michael and the Eucharist.
        If they say that Garabandal isn’t true, isn’t that what was propheized would happen?

      • Hi Friend, Actually, it was said that very few would believe just before the Warning. Let us pray for Our Lady’s intentions daily! God bless+

      • Cathryn Lang says:

        Also, I wondered about the Three Popes before the end of time. That one statement almost made me doubt the Apparition, when so many other things made me believe. I now realize that Pope Francis is IN the End Of Time, so he isn’t counted.

  32. johnson says:

    I believe no matter who says what about garabandal.i am sure that the warning will come on friday, 25th march 2016. the world needs the intervention of god.look and see what crimes are going on around the world today.through his great mercy we will all be saved from the fires of hell.IT IS TIME!.God Bless All.
