This plaque was photographed by me (Father Aquinas) in 2015 at the site where Saint Michael the Archangel appeared to the visionaries at Garabandal. When I returned to Garabandal in September 2018, the plaque was not there. I asked some residents where it went to, they replied: “Ask the mayor.” Strange!!

Between 1962 and 1965 Our Lady appeared to four humble children at Garabandal in Northern Spain over 2,000 times during the time of the Vatican II Council. The main visionary was Conchita Gonzalez. In 18 June 1965 Our Blessed Mother Mary said: “As my message of 18 October 1961, 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. Less and less importance is being given to the Eucharist. You should turn the wrath of God away from yourselves by your efforts. If you ask His forgiveness with sincere hearts, He will pardon you.
I, your mother, through the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel, ask you to amend your lives.”

Why were ‘many cardinals, many bishops and many priests’ who were meeting at Vatican II upset at being publicly chastised? Why were the messages of 1846, 1960, 1961, denied? Why? Why did the hierarchy offend Our Lady?

Our Lady COULD also be saying: ‘As my message of the Third Secret of Fatima has not been complied with and has not been made known to the world…’ The pope in 1960 was John XXIII. He refused to obey Our Blessed Mother Mary who had asked that the Third Secret given to Sister Lucia be delivered to the world in 1960 or on the death of Lucia, whichever came first. John XXIII decided he knew better than the Mother of God! Our Lady’s hands are not tied, and so She gave Her message another way! We look to Garabandal!

At Garabandal Our Lady foretells us of three great supernatural events:

1. The Warning. This is a moment in time when everyone in the world no matter where they may be will see their souls as God sees them. This will be a terrifying experience. The whole world will stop in place, and God will have His way, so people can decide for or against Him.

2. A Great Miracle will occur within twelve months after the Warning, on a Thursday, between 8th and 16th of a month between March and May. It will be announced by Conchita eight days in advance.
It will occur on the feast of a child Saint who is a martyr of the Holy Eucharist.
As a result of the Miracle, Russia will be converted. This will be greater than the Miracle at Fatima, and will coincide with a great and important event in the Church and for all of Christendom.

The Miracle will leave a permanent visible supernatural Sign and will remain at the pines until the end of time. It will not be able to be destroyed, and will happen after the Miracle.

3. The Chastisement. If the world still does not change after the Miracle, then God will send the Chastisement. It will not be man-made like wars and such, but it is a dreadful period of the chastising hand of God upon all mankind.

On the day that Pope John XXIII died, Our Lady said to Conchita that there remained no more than three popes “until the end of times.” Those three popes were Paul VI, John Paul I and John Paul II. This means that the death of John Paul II completed the era of “the end of times.” Note, ‘the end of times’ is different from ‘the end of time’ as we shall see in the next segment.
