November 4, 1961: The Virgin concern for the Church

 

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1961:

 

THE VIRGIN OF MOUNT CARMEL'S CONCERN FOR THE CHURCH

The Blessed Virgin warned the four visionaries that their daily ecstasies would cease temporarily from November 18 on. Pressed by the "Special Commission," Msgr. Fernandez invited Don Valentin to take a "holiday." This would keep the pastor away from the village for almost two months during which time the girls each had only one apparition.
[Excerpted from 'Garabandal' Book, page 117]

It seems that Our Lady didn't like the conclusions of the "Special Commission", which was denying the supernatural events of Garabandal. I think She also didn't like the idea of removing the pastor from his post there. He was close to the girls and helped them spiritually, a 'good father priest'!

Many times in the future apparitions of Our Lady, right up to our present days, she has complained about the lack of belief in her appearances, in some cases people actually laughing at her. Imagine that! Well, all I can say is when the 'Warning' comes, the laughing will stop as we see our sins flashing before our eyes. It will be like we are drowning and our whole life passes through our minds. We will see all the bad we have done, but also all the good. A mini-judgment! Of course, those who love God, will love Him even more.
Praise God!
