5 MONTHS AND 20 DAYS BEFORE THE CLOSING OF VATICAN II

“MANY CARDINALS, MANY BISHOPS, AND MANY PRIESTS ARE ON THE ROAD TO PERDITION AND ARE TAKING MANY SOULS WITH THEM. LESS AND LESS IMPORTANCE IS BEING GIVEN TO THE EUCHARIST.” – Excerpt from the Last Message of Garabandal spoken in the Present Simple Tense and Present Continuous Tense on 18 June 1965 (5 months and 20 days before the closing of Vatican II)
⦁ “are on the road to perdition” is Present Simple Tense.
This tense describes the present state or condition of something or an habitual action.
⦁ “and are taking many souls with them” is Present Continuous Tense.
This tense is used to show that an ongoing action is happening now, either at the moment of speech or now in a larger sense. It describes an activity that is currently in progress. The present continuous can also be used to show that an action is going to take place in the near future. Consequently, Our Lady’s own words were meant for right then, at that very moment, on this particular date in 1965 and continuing during the Second Vatican Council. Please take a moment to think about what that implies.

“This message given by the Most Holy Virgin in Garabandal is the same that She gave in Fatima, but it is updated for our time.” - Bishop João Pereira Venâncio, Bishop of Leiria-Fátima, declared during an interview with Abbé Alfred Combe from France on 21 July 1983
⦁ Bishop Venâncio is the same man who had access to Sister Lucia of Fatima, who gave a detailed description of the Third Secret contained in the wax-sealed envelope by holding it up to a bright light, who officially commissioned a complete critical history of the apparitions, who had first-hand knowledge of everything that happened as the Bishop of the Diocese, and who twice personally visited with Conchita González of Garabandal at her home in New York.

“There was a second appearance [of Our Lady] this time in Spain in Garabandal […] The message was very dire. Repetition of the Third Secret in brief form.” – Father Malachi Martin, declared during a radio interview on “Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell” on the 81st Anniversary of the Third Secret of Fatima on 13 July 1998
⦁ Father Malachi Martin is the same man who read the text of the Third Secret of Fatima in February 1960, who was an advisor to Pope John XXIII, and who spoke with Conchita González of Garabandal in New York.

When Pope Benedict XVI was still Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, (around 1990) he revealed to his friend, Father Ingo Döllinger, that in the Third Secret of Fatima Our Lady warns not to change the liturgy. Our Lady warned against changing the Mass and that there would be an iniquitous Council in the Church. – The first published account of Father Ingo Döllinger’s testimony, of which we are aware, appeared in an interview with Father Paul Kramer in The Fatima Crusader, Issue #92 in May of 2009.

In 1975 Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani, former Head of the Holy Office and Head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, stated that “he believed in the supernatural character of Garabandal.” Cardinal Ottaviani also said, “We must pray a great deal, so that the Church may acknowledge Garabandal.” - Jacques Serre and Béatrice Caux, Garabandal: Apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary, p. 234
⦁ Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani is the same man who personally spoke with Sister Lucia of Fatima in May 1955, who read the Third Secret of Fatima, who spoke with Conchita Gonzalez of Garabandal in mid-January 1966 at the Vatican, who wrote the Circular Letter to the Presidents of Episcopal Conferences regarding some sentences and errors arising from the interpretation of the decrees of the Second Vatican Council on 24 July 1966, and who wrote a critique of the Novus Ordo Missae known as "The Ottaviani Intervention" on 25 September 1969.

In 1933, sixteen years after Our Lady’s Apparitions at Fatima, the future Pope Ven. Pius XII, then Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli, Secretary of State to Pope Pius XI, made prophetic remarks in confidence to his friend Count Enrico Pietro Galeazzi. Cardinal Pacelli stated that Our Lady of Fatima’s confidences to Sr. Lucia were a warning against the “suicide of altering the Faith.” Pacelli made similar prophetic warnings in a subsequent conversation with a fellow curial cardinal. Cardinal Pacelli said:
“Suppose, dear friend, that Communism is the most visible among the organs of subversion against the Church and the Tradition of Divine Revelation. Thus, we will witness the invasion of everything that is spiritual: philosophy, science, law, teaching, the arts, the media, literature, theater, and religion."
"I am concerned about the confidences of the Virgin to the little Lucia of Fatima. This persistence of the Good Lady in face of the danger that threatens the Church is a divine warning against the suicide that the alteration of the Faith, in its liturgy, its theology, and its soul, would represent." [...] - Msgr. Georges Roche & Philippe Saint Germain, Pie XII devant l’Histoire [Pius XII Before History], Paris: Robert Laffont, 1972, pp. 52-53

On 29 September 1978, Father Francis Benac, S.J., interviewed Mari Loli at her home in Massachusetts.
Fr. Benac: Your mother told me that one night you were upstairs with your father and that you cried and cried for one hour. Afterwards your father said to her: “I have just seen the most touching sight. Loli was crying the whole time while saying, ‘Oh, it’s going to be like that? People are going to suffer like that? Oh, make me suffer!’” Do you remember what you said at the time?
Mari Loli: It was all related to communism and what is going to happen in the Church and to the people because all these things are to have repercussions amongst the people. When the Church suffers confusion, the people are going to suffer too. Some priests who are communists will create such confusion that people will not know right from wrong. - "The Call of Garabandal", April-June 1984

And the Church's decision[s] on the authenticity of alleged Garabandal apparitions?
Live Mike
Garabandal has never been condemned by the Bishops of Santander.
There are 3 official forms of declaration by the Church authorities:
1. Approbation “Constat de supernaturalitate” It is certain to be supernatural
2. Condemnation “Constat de non supernaturalitate” It is certain to be non-supernatural
(the non-supernaturality is proven, it is evident to be of non-supernatural origin, it is …More
Garabandal has never been condemned by the Bishops of Santander.

There are 3 official forms of declaration by the Church authorities:
1. Approbation “Constat de supernaturalitate” It is certain to be supernatural
2. Condemnation “Constat de non supernaturalitate” It is certain to be non-supernatural
(the non-supernaturality is proven, it is evident to be of non-supernatural origin, it is established not supernatural)
3. Neither Approbation nor Condemnation “Non constat de supernaturalitate" It is NOT CERTAIN to be supernatural (essentially "we're not sure") This is the official position of the Bishops of Santander on Garabandal. The "alleged appearances" are yet to receive approval by the Church, pending new results or the reconvening of the case.

Why so number 3? Because in January of 1966 Conchita was invited to the Vatican by Cardinal Ottavini (Head of the Holy Office - CDF) for an interview / interrogation during which Conchita declared the future date of the Miracle to take place above the Pines in Garabandal. Therefore, prudence dictates that the Church must wait for the date to come to pass before making any further official declarations. So we wait. Incidentally, in a letter dated 3 March 1962 in which Padre Pio wrote to the girls of Garabandal he stated, "they will believe when it is too late."


Although two committees convened by the bishops of Santander declared that there were no phenomena capable of authenticating the facts as undoubtedly supernatural, they did not condemn the message. In this regard, the first commission stated, "We find nothing in need of ecclesiastical censure or condemnation, neither in the doctrine nor in the spiritual recommendations supposedly addressed to the faithful." Bishop Juan Antonio del Val, who called for a second commission, and later upon retiring from office stated that, "the message of Garabandal was important and theologically correct."
The second commission called for by Bishop Juan Antonio del Val Gallo has never been officially closed.

Bishop Juan Antonio del Val Gallo (December 1971 to August 1991)
Although he did not believe in Garabandal when he took office as Bishop, he showed an open mind in contrast to his two predecessors. As a canon of the Cathedral of Sandander in 1961, he was a member of the original commission but resigned for the way they carried out their affairs. He is the only Bishop of Santander who has seen the visionaries in ecstasy. After a pastoral visit in 1977, he lifted the bans of his predecessors regarding spreading the message of the apparitions and priests celebrating Mass in the place in which they allegedly took place. He also allowed the filming of a documentary about them and instituted the first interdisciplinary Episcopal Commission that took up the case.
Around 1981, he began to believe in the events. In 1983, he gave Dr. Luis Morales of the original commission, who had also come to believe in the apparitions, permission to lecture in the largest auditorium of Santander in defense of the events of Garabandal. In 1987, he instituted a new investigation of the apparitions and lifted the ban for priests to visit the site, allowing them to celebrate Mass in the village church with the pastor's permission.
What is the Catholic Church's Official Position on Garabandal? Bishop Juan Antonio del Val Gallo, …

Archbishop Carlos Osoro Sierra, Arzobispo de Oviedo (Apostolic Administrator, July 2006 to September 2007)
He inaugurated a new attitude in the hierarchy toward Garabandal, following the positive steps that had been taken by Bishop del Val.

Bishop Manuel Sánchez Monge (30th May, 2015, until present day)
Although in these notes, for the time being, the bishops do not find anything supernatural about the alleged apparitions (a question that remains open to revision in light of new information or in light of a better scientific study of existing information), they have said nothing against the content thereof (“we have not found anything deserving ecclesiastical censure or condemnation either in the doctrine or in the spiritual recommendations that have been published”) and this was and is precisely their role as a Church that instructs.

@Alex A Do you really think those who would bury the Third Secret of Fatima in defiance of Our Lady's express order and then silence Sister Lucia would soon after, suddenly embrace the same message in a brief updated form given in Garabandal? To that question, this thinker gives a resounding OF COURSE NOT!

Shocking truth, hidden in the Church by bad ghosts, under rug swept. Hidden so called private (I call helpful) revelations is another massive disaster, mistake. Satan hates them much more than the Bible and one of them is A.K. Emmerich. When they see what disasters have done to our souls, they will regret, they became high priests.
