Of all the Marian apparitions of the past 200 years, those that occurred in Garabandal, Spain are perhaps the most captivating and relevant to the 3rd Millennium. As follows:
Garabandal is a small village in northern Spain, in the Santander province, near the Picos de Europa mountains, a rugged and beautiful setting. Its full name is San Sebastian of Garabandal. It is located 600 meters above sea level, some 57 miles from the capital of the province. To get there one must climb steep, poor roads. No more than 300 people live in Garabandal. The town is impressively quiet. There is no doctor in the town and no resident pastor at the parish church. The pastor from Cosio, the next town down the road, used to celebrate Mass there on Sunday.
In the evening of June 18, 1961, four girls were playing on the outskirts of the town – Conchita Gonzalez, Maria Dolores (Mari-loli) Mazon, Jacinta Gonzalez and Maria Cruz Gonzalez (not related despite having the same name.) Maria Cruz was eleven, the others twelve, and all were from poor families.
Suddenly they heard a loud noise, like thunder, and saw before them the bright figure of the Archangel Michael. On the following days the Archangel appeared to them again in the same place. He announced that on July 2 they would see Our Lady. This was the beginning of the Garabandal events.

Truly, it is the extraordinary and profound messages which were spoken to the children at Garabandal which give reason to pause in 2017. References to the Warning, the Great Miracle and the Chastisement cannot be ignored, particularly in view of the current state of world affairs.
What distinguishes the poignant prophecies of Garabandal from so many others of the modern era is their unique details and compelling message. Even the highly revered Catholic saint and mystic Padre Pio enthusiastically affirmed the authenticity of the very weighty “Message of Garabandal”.
Padre Pio’s Belief in the Message of Garabandal When Great Miracle Happens
It ought to be recognized that the noted time frames of Marian predictions is very often symbolic and not to be taken literally. They frequently get postponed as a result of a divinely granted reprieve or grace period. That’s not to say the their exactitude cannot manifest; only that anything goes in the domain of divine prophecy. After all, true prophecy is always uttered to avert catastrophe, NOT to predict it.
Why Garabandal?The very same reason as to why world-famous Marian apparitions took place at Fatima, at Lourdes, and at Medjugorje. The Queen of Peace always appears on a continent or in those countries which are about to suffer a terrible cataclysm, usually a devastating war. Sometimes the war has already started, or will start in a few years. And the Blessed Mother almost always appears to children from humble beginnings who are innocent and pure.
The Marian apparition in Fatima occurred right in the midst of World War I. The heavenly appearances happened in Medjugorje before, during and after the Yugoslav Wars. And the Holy Mother appeared in Lourdes in 1858 the same year that the French commenced their wars against Vietnam which lasted from 1858–1886. Universally recognized as the Queen of Peace, it is now self-evident why She chose the timing for each of these apparitions.
Even the inaugural events of Garabandal in June 0f 1961 coincided with President John F. Kennedy’s fateful decision to enter the Vietnam War in May of 1961. But why was Spain chosen, and not the United States, in order to send such a serious message to the humanity.
Few understand that it was the Roman Catholic Church that ultimately persuaded Kennedy to prosecute the war in Vietnam. The Vatican used American Cardinals and Archbishops to influence the first Roman Catholic president to press forward with war. In fact, it was the Catholics, quite surprisingly, who were systematically persecuting Buddhists as well as taking over the Vietnam’s government throughout the traditionally Buddhist nation. Hence, it was actually the “Bishops of Rome” who were meant to receive the peacemaking missive delivered by the children at Garabandal.“May 1961 — Kennedy sends 400 United States Army Special Forces personnel to South Vietnam to train South Vietnamese soldiers following a visit to the country by Vice-President Johnson.”
One of the more prophetic messages which the children received in 1961, particularly in light of the worldwide pedophilia scandal throughout the RC Church, is as follows:
“Many Cardinals, many Bishops and many Priests are on the road to perdition and with them they are bringing many souls.”
100th Anniversary of FatimaThere are a number of calendrical significances and global coincidences which speak to the fulfillment of the prophecies of Grabandal. 2017 is the 100th anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima. It was there that She requested the Bishops of Rome to consecrate Russia before Soviet communism was used to terrorize both Russia and those republics which comprised the USSR. Instead of peace, the stage was set for World War II which was all but guaranteed by the extremely oppressive Treaty of Versailles that ended World War I. Such are the grave consequences for ignoring the guidance of the Queen of Peace.
What is particularly curious is the close proximity of the last 3 major apparitions to occur on the European continent, excluding the most recent ones in Medjugorje. The red marker above is placed on Garabandal, Spain, just as the smaller gray maker to the right is located at Lourdes, France. Fatima is located just below the “t” in Portugal. This cluster of apparitions in and around the nation of Spain deserves further investigation and research.
The Warning, the Great Miracle and the ChastisementThe critical purpose of this retrospective analysis is to determine if the three primary events, which were predicted at Garabandal in the early 1960s, are still on schedule. It would seem that there is a great likelihood that the entire planetary civilization is on the cusp of experiencing an earth-shattering event. Clearly “The Warning, the Great Miracle and the Chastisement” would each impact the global status quo with great effect.
Among these 3 separate predictions, it is most likely the Great Miracle that would bring the world community of nations to the table of reconciliation and peace and brotherhood. Were such a supernatural event to occur in a place like San Sebastian de Garabandal, who would not take notice? So the purpose of this inquiry is to isolate the most likely date of such a divine intervention via an unquestionable miracle.
2012 Garabandal Prophecy Pinpoints the “Great Miracle” for April 13, 2017
Of course, the Chastisement (which is said to follow the Miracle, if required) also ought to wake up many who are asleep with indifference and materialism, immorality and hedonism. If such a Chastisement period is punctuated by the oft-predicted “Three Days of Darkness”, then surely there will be much for many to contemplate deeply which has eluded them for decades.
The Three Days of Darkness
As for the Warning, it is quite possible that the terror attacks of 9/11 served as the that specific “warning” which met the criteria of being seen in the sky by all. There is no single event before or after 9/11 which has served to shock the collective consciousness of humankind so intensely. Quite unfortunately, not only did that warning go unheeded, it was used to further corral populations everywhere into a pen of fearful compliance and/or unjustified warmongering. Whereas the death and destruction on September 11th first elicited compassion and kindness both within the USA and abroad, it quickly led to a precipitous deterioration of the international order.
Now that the “Clash of Civilizations” has begun in earnest, there is a very real need to short-circuit the rapidly cascading developments which threaten the whole civilization. The only way that this can be practically accomplished is through real-time “deus ex machina”, whereby the Almighty enters the affairs of man in a highly dramatic and impressive fashion. Otherwise, both the masses and the elites are far too mesmerized and out of touch to be properly influenced to lead a righteous life.
9/11 — The WarningThe prophecies of old were always issued as a means to sober the people up so as to encourage them to change their ways—REPENT, if you will. Whenever the social fabric begins to tear irreparably, greater outside forces are often compelled to prevent further damage. Welcome to America—2017!
Under the last POTUS, the United States of America took a serious turn for the worse. In fact, the moral depravity has become so pervasive that a rude awakening was, and is, desperately needed. The nation in some ways resembles “Sodom and Gomorrah”, where New York City is Sodom and Los Angeles is Gomorrah. When such is the case, how else to break the downward spiral? The present cycle of social degeneration and individual corruption has doomed the younger generations, unless something very transformative happens quickly.
In the wake of 9/11, the USA could have taken one path or the other. Taking the high road would have been to follow the path inward for each and every American (as well as for each and every inhabitant of the planet). This necessary introspection would have shown everyone how we were all responsible for 9/11, some much more than others.
Who can debate that national destiny cannot be thwarted, or that individual karma is normally cut in stone? Of course, personal responsibility cuts both ways in this lifetime based on whether we have been a part of the problem (often unwittingly), or a part of the solution. Irrespective of these and other pertinent issues, 9/11 was meant to serve as a HUGE warning. If nothing else, the controlled demolition of the Twin Towers and Building#7 foreshadowed the controlled demolition of the American economy in 2008 via the real estate bubble burst of 2007 and stock market crash during the Fall of 2008.
An inordinately large number of people projected their anger and fear and revenge outward after that fateful day in September of 2001. They did this without having any true understanding of what really happened on 9/11. Consequently, the global village is now fractured more than ever and in great disrepair. Perhaps this is a good time to listen to the modern-day prophet whose wise words right after 9/11 served to inspire many.
“America, Wake up! ! !
Seize this God-given opportunity.
There is no more time to dally in fear and ignorance and greed.
For yours is a destiny that must serve as a beacon of Light and Hope and Peace to the world.
Make haste, the time is drawing nigh!”
ConclusionWhether the Garabandal predictions do occur as stated or not, they have been instrumental in motivating many a spiritual seeker to get it right with God. The entire sacred story has educated, enlightened and empowered many a spiritual aspirant for decades.
What’s more valuable in life than those experiences which serve to put one squarely on their spiritual path. In this day and age of unrelenting distraction, it is very challenging to stay focused. However, the smelling salts of Garabandal can quickly bring anyone to their senses. For what occurred in that time and place remains etched on the psyche of all who participated, whether they did so on site or from afar.
Like all CCRG commentary on prophecy, we make no claim as to whether these things will come to pass. We do, however, acknowledge the hand of God in the holy happenings of Garabandal in the early 1960s. Those four special children are to be respected as messengers of the divine.

Although highly consequential in nature, it is the opinion of the CCRG that a large swath of humanity is in dire need of a major wakeup call. With the election of Donald Trump after the win for BREXIT, opposing demographics within the human race have been set upon a collision course with each other. The tensions are vast and deep, and are only getting worse by the day. Hence, such an inevitable societal breaking point can only be precluded by an event so shocking that it changes the public discourse in a single moment.
The messages of Garabandal, therefore, seem more germane than ever. Clearly, the immediate future for every resident on planet Earth is fraught with the potential for profound and fundamental change. The upcoming period, then, will be extremely dynamic and unsettling for many, and eventually followed by unparalleled global transformation. The question remains to be seen if the predictions of Garabandal will prove to be the trigger.
