“Many cardinals, many bishops, and many priests are following the road to perdition.” (from the second heavenly message of the reported apparitions of Garabandal, 1965)
DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS… HERE ARE THE FACTS —
During the early part of June 1963, the bells of Garabandal started to ring. The following conversation then occurred between Garabandal visionary, Conchita, and her mother, Aniceta:
Conchita: “The bells are tolling for the dead! It must be for the pope (Bl. John XXIII, 1958-1963). Now only three remain.”
Aniceta: “What nonsense are you talking about?”
Conchita: “It is not nonsense. The Virgin told me: After this pope there will only be three more.”
Aniceta: “Then what? Will it be the end of the world?”
Conchita: “The Virgin did not say the end of the world but the end of time.”
“From the Holy Virgin. ‘Actually,'” she said,”‘there will be four more,’ but one she (Our Lady) doesn’t count.”
Aniceta: “Why doesn’t she count one?”
Conchita: “That she did not say; she only said that she doesn’t count one.
She did say, however, that one will reign only a short time.”
Aniceta: “And what comes then?”
Conchita: “That she did not say.” After a shorter pause Conchita added: “The Holy Virgin told us several times that Jesus, her Son, will come back (in the Second Coming), but whether He comes then, I don’t know.”
Aniceta: “Is that everything?”
Conchita: “Yes. But she (Our Lady) also said: ‘The separated churches (or Christians) will be united again.’ There will then remain only one religion.”
(from “Garabandal: Der Zeigefinger Gottes” by Albrecht Weber; see excerpt at http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message96209/pg1)
At first, Conchita says there will be 3 more Popes after Pope John XXIII. Then, in response to one of her mother’s questions, Conchita responds that Our Lady had actually said that there would be four more Popes (before the end time prophecies of Garabandal occurred – including the Warning, Miracle, and Chastisement), but that Our Lady was not counting one of them. During that conversation with her mother, Conchita also said that Our Lady had told her that one of the future Popes would have a very short reign. So, this prophecy discusses 5 Popes.
The 3 Popes after Bl. John XXIII were Paul VI, Bl. John Paul II, and Benedict XVI. And then John Paul I was the pope who had “a very short reign”.
So, there is still the final pope, who is not being counted by Our Lady.
1. So, who is the final Pope not being counted by Our Lady, and why does she not count him?
2. How close are we thus to the fulfillment of the prophecies of Garabandal – including the Warning, Miracle, and Chastisement – which prepare for the Second Coming of Christ at the end of our times?
The Archbishop of Oviedo, Carlos Osoro Sierra, who is Apostolic Administrator of the region of Garabandal (Santander, Spain), said in May 2007: “I respect the apparitions and have known of authentic conversions… I encourage you to continue maintaining this devotion to our Mother.”
Visionary Conchita was received in a private audience with Pope Paul VI, who said: “Conchita I bless you and with me the whole Church blesses you.”
St. Pio, Bl. John Paul II, and Bl. Mother Teresa were all personal supporters of the apparitions of Garabandal.
This conversation between Conchita and her mother (discussed above) was reported in a book in the German Language published in the early 1990’s. Albrecht Weber, the author of the book Garabandal: Der Zeigefinger Gottes (Garabandal: The Finger of God), had become involved in Garabandal in 1963 and became friendly with Conchita. On November 14, 1965, the day after the last apparition of Our Lady in Garabandal, Mr. Weber interviewed Conchita at her home in the presence of her mother. There was also present with Mr. Weber an interpreter.
A first edition copy of this book was presented to Bl. Pope John Paul II. He later asked his secretary, Fr. (now Archbishop) Stanislaus Dziwisz, to write to the author. In the subsequent printing (2000) of the book, on page 19, a portion of the Pope’s message is reprinted, as follows:
“May God reward you for everything. Especially for the deep love with which you are making the events connected with Garabandal more widely known. May the Message of the Mother of God find an entrance into hearts before it is too late. As an expression of joy and gratitude, the Holy Father gives you his apostolic blessing.”
