Dear Friends of Our Lady,
Forty five years ago today, on October 18, 1961, the First Message of Garabandal was read at the pines…
“We must make many sacrifices, perform much penance, and visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently. But first we must lead good lives. If we do not, a chastisement will befall us. The cup is already filling up and if we do not change, a very great chastisement will come upon us.”
With these four simple sentences our Blessed Mother gave the world the remedy to convert sinners, strengthen the Church and avoid the future chastisement. At the time, many in the crowd who had made the journey to hear what they hoped was a momentous announcement were greatly disappointed. Some wondered how such a simple message could be accepted by a society looking for the spectacular.
Only a few listened and four years later Our Lady, disappointed with the lack of effort, sent Saint Michael with her second Message. Our Lady of Mount Carmel is still looking for those willing to distribute this simple Message with the hope that by living it, souls can be saved and many more will come to love her Son, Jesus.
This is where you come in.
In 2002, after years of promoting Garabandal in the traditional ways we went online with www.Garabandal.us. At the time, Pope John Paul II was exhorting apostolates to take to the internet. He said, “We shouldn’t be afraid to put to sea on the vast ocean of information…we must become part of this ever more finely woven web of information.”
We turned our full efforts and resources to the internet so that all the information and materials we have could be offered free around the world. Everything we have went up…gratis. The response has been tremendous and we continue to receive emails from people from around the world who are just now learning of the apparitions through the website.
I strongly encourage you to help us spread Our Lady’s Message on the internet. Forward this email to your email list. Tell them about Garabandal.us and the information about Our Lady’s Messages and the Coming Events. Every effort made on behalf of Our Lady to make her message known, no matter how small, is significant. Pray for the successful spread of the message throughout the world.
Remember, Garabandal is for a world in crisis. Please pray and promote.
In Union of Prayer,
