Dear Friend of Our Lady of Mount Carmel,
The internet has brought the spread of Our Lady’s Message of Garabandal around the world in a way unknown in 1961 when the first reports of four little girls seeing the Blessed Mother came out of a tiny village in the mountains of northern Spain.
Over the last 40 years a generation of Garabandal Workers has answered the request of the Blessed Mother to make her Message known. We are grateful to God for this opportunity now to step aside and yet continue to spread the Message in a new way as we await the coming prophesied Warning and Miracle which will be the proof of the authenticity of Garabandal.
NEW YORK CENTER UPDATE
In May, 2002, we moved with the times to promote the Message going on the internet with a huge and comprehensive website- Garabandal.us. The transition is complete. Now we offer our remaining inventory until all is gone or until December, 2004, whichever comes first.
******* CLOSING THE CATALOG ON BOOKS AND VIDEOS
(See Description of Books and Videos on Page 1 of the Garabandal Materials Catalog)
BOOKS: To accommodate the transition to the internet, the 5 classic Garabandal Books and the Vigil Guide were reprinted with new covers, sharper photos and original content. There are no plans to reprint as these books can be read or printed off the website. The pages of photos are priceless. These books are great gifts for family, friends or collectors.
VIDEOS: The Message of Garabandal video, available in all its translations is being viewed daily in many languages around the world on the website. Conchita’s interview, After the Visions, is very popular along with Joey Lomangino on Mother Angelica Live. These videos can be downloaded to your computer for your personal use. Copies of all three videos in English are available until the current stock is depleted.
OTHER PRINTED MATERIALS: Requests for all other printing in stock; pictures,
holy cards, leaflets, etc. shown on page 2 of the Catalog will be mailed out promptly
KISSED OBJECTS: The Blessed Mother told the young visionary Conchita she wanted kissed objects distributed. The promises made to those who use the kissed missal medals with faith, or who venerate them, are as valid today as they were during the apparitions. We will continue to distribute the medals with the little piece of Conchita’s kissed missal page in them as long as they are available. Chain rosaries with missal medal centerpieces are rare but what has been made will be distributed. There is a limit of only one of each kissed missal medal item per request.
THE SCAPULAR: This important sacramental was brought to Garabandal by Our Lady of Mount Carmel. To encourage devotion to the scapular and as a protection in these evil times, we offer one simple brown scapular to those who request one to wear. *******
MAGAZINES: Three Special Editions and over 1000 pages of Garabandal Magazine articles are now available on the web. The official magazine of the Workers of Our Lady of Mount Carmel de Garabandal, Garabandal Magazine is out of publication. It is not affiliated with any newsletters, current magazines or journals using its name or format to solicit subscriptions or donations. Our mailings continue to come from Lindenhurst, New York. To protect its authenticity, Garabandal Magazine issues have been registered with the Library of Congress United States Copyright Office in Washington D.C. and content cannot be altered or sold. Articles, interviews and testimonies are free on the internet at www.Garabandal.us.
THE WARNING AND MIRACLE: Many emails came in March and April as a result of rumors regarding the date of the Miracle. Careless speculation causes anxiety for many who are concerned about loved ones. Remember, the worldwide Warning, which will be felt by every man, woman and child, must come first. You will not miss the Warning!
THE E-MAIL LIST: We have established an e-mail list on our website and many thousands have signed on. This feature is being used to send messages such as this. The primary purpose is to contact everyone after the Warning and also to circulate worldwide the eight day announcement Conchita will give before the Miracle. If you change your e-mail address, you must re-enter the new one. As a test, on June 18, 2004, we will send our e-mail list subscribers the complete Message of Garabandal to pass on to their respective e-mail lists. If you do not receive it, please re-enter your e-mail address to help us keep the list up to date. If you have any technical problem with the e-mail list or the website, please contact our webmaster at the address on the contact link. You will receive prompt service.
IN CONCLUSION: Two Anniversaries are celebrated this year. The 30th Anniversary of the establishment of the Workers of Our Lady of Mount Carmel de Garabandal, Inc. and the 40th Anniversary of the letter of March 19, 1964 from the visionary Conchita to Joey Lomangino telling him, “the Virgin said on the day of the great miracle, Joey will receive new eyes, and they will be for the glory of God.” Next year will be the 40th Anniversary of the Second Message, June 18, 1965.The Blessed Mother, disappointed with our lack of effort, sent Saint Michael the Archangel with her final Message which began “As my Message has not been complied with and has not been made known the world”- – -. It is the MESSAGE OF GARABANDAL that is important. As Conchita said, “If we fulfill the Message, it doesn’t matter that we don’t believe in the apparitions.”
Thank you for your support through the years. Please remember to promote the Message as we remain In Union of Prayer.
