November 18, 1961: The hollidays of Don Valentin

 

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1961:

 

"THE HOLIDAYS". . . OF DON VALENTIN MARICHALAR

This was the last day of the first period of frequent ecstasies. Don Valentin left "on holiday" was replaced by Reverend Amador, a worthy priest. He handed in a detailed report of all the observations made during his stay at San Sebastian de Garabandal . . . "Finally," as Fr. Marichalar reported in December after meeting with the Papal Nuncio in Madrid, "it appeared proper to Msgr. the Bishop that I take charge of San Sebastian de Garabandal again."

The Blessed Virgin announced to the girls the date of her next four apparitions.

It seems that Father Marichalar was very anxious and happy to be re-instated as pastor in Garabandal. The girls were happy to have him back. Once they said "He's ugly, but a very holy priest!"

I think the Blessed Mother was happy too, she started appearing to the girls again . . .
