What is the Catholic Church's Official Position on Garabandal? Bishop Juan Antonio del Val Gallo, Bishop of Santander 1971-1991, an eyewitness of the events, who served on the diocesan commission, states the Church's official view. - Clip from the documentary, "San Sebastián de Garabandal: The Eyewitnesses", 1995, M.F.G. Productions, Auckland, New Zealand [Editor's Note: The official position of the Church on Garabandal has never changed since Bishop del Val Gallo made this statement and still stands as of 11 February 2022. The documentary received the Imprimatur and Nihil Obstat of Bishop Roman Danylak, Titular Bishop of Nyssa, Apostolic Administrator of Toronto (Ukrainian) in Rome, Italy, 24 January 2000. Also, Garabandal receives large numbers of traditional Catholic pilgrims & SSPX members every year. I suspect their affinity is based upon Our Lady's critical words regarding churchmen and the connection with similar words Our Lady spoke at Quito, La Salette, Fatima, and Akita.]

Some sources say three, some say four. To me it doesn't matter because either number marks "the new period in salvation history" called "the end of times." "The end of times" is NOT the end of the world but that proximate period of unknown duration which precedes the actual end of the world. Sr. Lucia of Fatima described it as "the last times of the word" in her interview with Fr. Fuentes on …More

So, if you want to draw the line of demarcation with Pope John Paul II or Pope Benedict XVI - We're Already There!

I would take what Padre Pio has said about it over anything the morons in the Vatican say.

St Padre Pio believed in what happened in Garabandal if that counts for anything.

Padre Pio affirmed Garabandal to a Ph.D in confession.
Joachim Bouflet, Ph.D. went to Padre Pio for confession in July of 1968 [2 months before his death on 23 September 1968]. Padre Pio told him "Pray to the Madonna. Consecrate yourself to the Virgin of Carmel." "Yes, Padre, I pray to Our Lady of Mount Carmel. For that matter, I would like to become a Carmelite." He didn't comment on this but …

Consecrate yourself to the Virgin of Carmel." "Yes, Padre, I pray to Our Lady of Mount Carmel. For that matter, I would like to become a Carmelite." He didn't comment on this but repeated with insistence, "Consecrate yourself to the Virgin of Carmel who appeared at Garabandal."
Bouflet: "So it's true?"
Padre Pio: "Certo e vero!" ("Yes, it's true!")

From the book “Our Lady comes to Garabandal” by Fr. J. Pelletier, A.A., p. 219.
“While he was living, the same Padre Pio guaranteed the authenticity of the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin. He met Conchita at San Giovanni Rotondo [January 1966]. Even during the last days of his life he talked about this to his brothers in religious life and left a personal message for the principle personage of the apparitions.”

From the book “The Final Hour” by Michael Harold Brown, p.141.
On the topic of Padre Pio’s belief in Garabandal: “Asked on another occasion about its authenticity, he answered curtly, “How many times must she appear there to be believed?”

From the book “Thunder of Justice” by Ted and Maureen Flynn, p. 163.
An incident which confirms Padre Pio’s belief in Garabandal occurred early in 1966. Conchita, who was only 16 years old, was visiting Rome with her mother and Fr. Luna. She had been invited by Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani, Prefect of the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith. During the visit to Italy, Conchita met privately with Padre Pio. On this occasion, Padre Pio took Conchita’s hand and her crucifix that Our Lady had kissed in Garabandal and held them both in his own two hands. The crucifix had passed through the hands of the Child Jesus, during the apparition of 13 November 1965.

Upon Padre Pio’s death in 1968, his close friend Father Bernardino Cennamo OFM Cap, was instructed to give Conchita several of his personal items. The priest gave Conchita one of the three veils that covered Padre Pio's face during his wake, saying that the stigmatic had requested this before he died. Conchita also was given Padre Pio's rosary, and one of the gloves he wore, stained by his stigmata.

Conchita’s interview in "NEEDLES" magazine in 1975:
"I had the veil in front of me [...] when all of a sudden the room was filled with a fragrance. I had heard about the fragrances from Padre Pio, but I never paid any attention to them. The whole room filled with such a strong smell of perfume that I began to cry. It was the first time I experienced this, it happened after his death."

“He [Padre Pio] saw the miracle before he died. He [Padre Pio] told me himself.” - Father Bernardino Cennamo, OFM Cap
Father Cennamo acknowledged that he did not believe in Garabandal at the beginning, but shared with Conchita that when Padre Pio asked him to give her the veil that covered his face after his death, he changed his views. At Lourdes, on that day, “the veil and the letter were delivered to Conchita.” But something else interested her more. And so she immediately asked Father Cennamo: “Why did the Virgin tell me that Padre Pio would see the miracle and he has died?” To which the Capuchin responded: “He saw the miracle before he died. He told me himself.” That being so, then the saint of the stigmata has entered into a close circle of Garabandal protagonists who, just before their death, have seen the big announced miracle. It links Padre Pio to Garabandal in a much deeper way than having a spiritual interest in its message, having supernaturally seen the miracle, something not even the seers have experienced.

This is great research and St Padre Pio was a man of humility considering the supernatural gifts he had and crosses in his life made him a Saint in another category of Saints. His obedience and humility like other Saints gives them insights and revelations that others will never know of certain events. He is trustworthy and I love his famous line to a response to someone who said they didn't believe …More

His obedience and humility like other Saints gives them insights and revelations that others will never know of certain events. He is trustworthy and I love his famous line to a response to someone who said they didn't believe in Hell, he said "you will believe in hell when you get there" and "pray, hope and don't worry"

Pío de Pietrelcina was a priest, mystic, stigmatic and a "super" saint. He could read souls and perform bilocation by the grace of Almighty God. The opinion of such a man as this is highly significant.

Also, he suffered greatly where-to my knowledge-he was forbidden to say Mass for many years due to slanderous accusations which were false and it was a great pain for him, the other torment was that he felt he wasn't pleasing God and didn't feel in that State of Grace even though he was. Satan throws many things at us but St Pio was humble right through and obeyed God through his superiors. Humility …More
