The Warning and the Great Miracle of Garabandal—Two Supernatural Events that Will Change the World
“And I will work wonders in the Heavens above, and signs on the earth below; blood, fire, and a cloud of smoke.” – Acts 2:19
“It is the most beautiful story of humanity since the days of Christ. It is like a second life of the Virgin on earth. And we can never be grateful enough for it.” – Pope Paul VI and his sentiments on Garabandal
“Conchita, I bless you, and with me, the whole church will bless you.” – Pope Paul VI
Those familiar with Signs and Wonders magazine, and the writings of my wife Maureen and me, know we have had a particular interest in the apparitions of the Blessed Mother at Garabandal, Spain since the early 1980s. Garabandal has a uniqueness all its own, about which we have written extensively. We released a book in 1993 (revised in 2010), The Thunder of Justice, The Warning, the Miracle, the Chastisement, The Era of Peace. The story and messages of Garabandal were the heart and the soul of the book.
Garabandal is a fascinating story historically, prophetically, scripturally, and mystically. It pieces together a beautiful mosaic of Heaven’s language to the people of God. Garabandal points to future events complementary to other elements in the Catholic faith, as well as to significant historical events in the Old Testament. If one understands that God, the Blessed Mother, and the Host of Heaven have a plan for the salvation of all mankind in our troubled times, then Garabandal and its promises make even more sense. Recently, there has been heightened interest in Garabandal because a unique world-wide convergence of religious, geopolitical, and spiritual events makes the events prophesied more plausible. Attempting to predict the exact date of an event is never wise, but it appears the season of the events is inching closer to reality. Russia/Ukraine, China/Taiwan, the Korean Peninsula, and other significant factors enable an individual to know the world could change in an instant. If just one such factor were to spark a nuclear event it would catapult the interconnected world into a state of complete chaos.
My wife, Maureen, and I first visited Garabandal with our family in 1994, and again in 2017 on pilgrimage to Fatima (its 100th anniversary). Garabandal was an eye-opening experience on the second visit, because we had learned so much during that interval of time since our first visit. What was most noticeable in 2017 was how little life had changed in the village. More accurately, we were stunned by it. The church had not been updated or expanded, and was still tiny, and only a few dozen more homes were built in the surrounding area. For pilgrims, there were only two public bathrooms. Two! It was eerie to experience it in its simplicity and remoteness from the noise of the world considering what is expected to happen there at some point in the future.
The miraculous that is prophesied to happen there will be unprecedented in all of history. The lack of amenities and facilities may be a part of the much bigger story when the Miracle does happen. Although our group had been to Fatima just a few days before Garabandal, most of the two bus-loads of people (100 in all) felt that the future of the prophetic was here at this site tucked away in a remote hamlet few have visited in northern Spain. Fatima was true, and events happened as prophesied exactly to the letter. Russia had spread her errors throughout the world as the Blessed Mother said to three peasant children in 1917. Fatima became the cornerstone of apparitions for the 20th Century as it had been approved by the Magisterium of the Church. But that was now history, and the Holy Spirit, being dynamic and not static, moved on—with or without us—to teach new things.
Fatima opened up the 20th Century for renewed reception of Our Lady’s words, and the messages proved to be true. Our Lady continued her apparitions as a mercy to humanity in the form of modern day epistles at Beauraing, Belgium (1932); Banneux, Belgium (1933); Divine Mercy, Poland (July 1934 earliest notes written); Our Lady of All Nations, Amsterdam (1945); Montichiari, Italy (1947); Flame of Love, Hungary (1961); Garabandal, Spain (1961); Akita, Japan (1973); Medjugorje, now Bosnia, formerly Yugoslavia (1981); Kibeho, Rwanda (1981)… and the list of love and mercy grows for all humanity on a continual basis.
The Push for a Great Reset—The Global Connectivity of Nations
At any point in time there are continual changes in the way societies and civilizations govern and rule —and who the new governing powers will be. To have a new one, one will be replaced. This is the story of civilization itself that historians like Will Durant, William Manchester, and others have written about. We see empires like Egypt under the Pharaohs, Persia, the Greeks, Alexander the Great conquering the known world, the Romans as the mightiest army of its time, Spain finding a new world with its Armada, the Portuguese explorers finding new oceans, the Dutch traders having the reserve currency of their time, France under the Sun Kings, England sailing the seven seas and conquering foreign lands for commodities and spices, and America after World War II and Bretton Woods becoming the undisputed ruler of finance and industry globally in the twentieth century. However, never has the world seen an integrated and interconnected community of nations like we now see. It is a new phase of mankind.
The global elite monitors the many government bodies vying for control, and we can see in real time any nation that steps out of bounds from what the global elite deems appropriate will be doomed to either obscurity or destruction. At the heart of it all is a contest for who controls central banking. Soon after his first year as president, Joe Biden gave another indication that we are in a seismic shift when he said, “You know we are in an inflection point, I believe, in the world economy. Not just the economy, the world. It occurs every three or four generations. As one of the top military generals told me the other day in a secure meeting, 60 million people died between 1900 and 1946, and since then we have established a liberal world order and that has not happened in a long while. Lot of people dying now, but nowhere near the chaos. And now’s the time when things are shifting. There’s gonna be a new world order out there, and we’ve gotta lead it. And we’ve gotta unite the rest of the world in doing it.”
There is the friction of people of faith versus a government agenda for humanity. Who will lead it and under what structure? A God ordained one or a pagan group of godless bureaucrats trying to implement an agenda void of God and His ordained principles.
Opposing Armies—Satan’s vs. Heaven’s Reset
All over the news is the Great Reset with the elites (those wanting government control of people from cradle to grave and over who lives and who dies) administratively ramming their agenda for global governance. It is a Luciferian plan to enslave mankind for the dominion of the world on their terms. We hear it now ad nauseam. It has been gradual for many generations and if one understands that the plan is population control, and that climate legislation is a vehicle created to implement their programs, news would have made more sense years ago for those willing to listen. The perfect scenario came together with the man-made creation of Covid 19 enabling the vehicle for medical tyranny with a preplanned pandemic as a cover to usher in new social and financial instruments and create more data points for surveillance and governmental control.
However, the Warning and the Great Miracle of Garabandal will be Heaven’s Reset on their own terms to offset the evil in our day. “Where sin abounds, grace abounds all the more” (Romans 5:20). Due to the interconnectivity of this community of nations, Heaven will have their own global solutions. Our Lady told Father Stefano Gobbi of the Marian Movement of Priests, “In fact at the very moment when Satan will be enthroned as the lord of the world and will think himself now the sure victor, I myself will snatch the prey from his hands. In a trice he will find himself empty-handed, and in the end the victory will be exclusively my Son’s and mine. This will be the triumph of the Immaculate Heart in the world” (29g).
A promise so great awaits us; there are barely words to describe the majesty of it all. In message number 83, October 18, 1975, very early on in the movement, the Blessed Mother gave to the Marian Movement of Priests simultaneously the blueprint for humanity and the Church. It partially reads,
“My adversary will one day think that he is celebrating a complete victory: over the world, over the Church, over souls. It will be only then that I will intervene—terrible and victorious—that his defeat may be all the greater when he is certain in his conviction that he has conquered once for all.”
“What is in preparation is so extraordinary that its like has never happened since the creation of the world. That is why everything has already been predicted in the Bible. The terrible struggle between me, the Woman Clothed with the Sun and the Red Dragon, Satan, who has now succeeded in seducing many even with the error of Marxist atheism, has always been foretold to you.… Above all, my complete victory has already been clearly foretold. You, my sons, have been called to live through these events. It is now time for you to know this, that you may be consciously prepared for the battle. This is now the time for me to begin disclosing part of my plan.
“First of all, it is necessary that my enemy have the impression of conquering everything, of having everything now in his hands. That is why he will be permitted to penetrate even into the interior of my Church, and he will succeed in plunging the sanctuary of God into darkness. He will reap the greatest number of victims from the ministers of the sanctuary. This will in fact be a time of great falls on the part of my beloved sons, my priests” (83:c-j).
“The weapons that I will use to fight and win this battle will be your prayer and suffering” (83z).
The late Pope Benedict XVI wrote, “All will seem lost, but at the right time, right at the dramatic stage of the crisis, the Church will be reborn…for it will no longer be the Church of those who seek to please the world, but the Church of the faithful to God and His eternal law. Renaissance will be the work of a small remnant, seemingly insignificant but nevertheless indomitable, undergone a purification process. Because that is how God works. Against evil, a little flock stands….”
The prophetic events that are to occur at Garabandal are breathtaking and will defy natural law. At the time of this writing, there are five Cardinals and many bishops that are openly saying they see signs of “the end times” in our midst. More people of all faiths believe we are in “the end of times,” and willing to openly discuss it. Not the end of the world, as one may say in an attempt to discredit the argument, but the end of an age, an era, or epoch of time. The earth is vomiting due to such grievous sin, and the Lord will not idly stand by before grace makes a move to remedy the situation. Some are obdurate, blind and insensitive to the sin in our midst while others see that Heaven has an agenda. Similar to the age of the Old Testament under Mosaic Law that shifted to a New Testament with the Incarnation and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Once the redemption of man took place with the birth of Jesus, Scripture took on a new dimension as the Jews became the elder brothers in the faith. With the Warning and the Great Miracle, we will enter the time of a New Era, a New Time!
