Dear Friends of
The Blessed Virgin Mary:
PEACE! ...JOY! ...APOSTLESHIP!
In the past, we have always tried to be faithful and accurate in promoting the Garabandal information
particularly the FOUR MESSAGES given to the world by Our Blessed Mother during Her more than 2,000 appearances
to the four eleven and twelve-year-old visionaries, Mari-Cruz, Jacinta, Maria Dolores, nicknamed Loli,
and Conchita. The visions began on June 18, 1961, with the appearance of St. Michael The Archangel, and
ended in November 1965.
Our Blessed Mother's FIRST Message was given to all four girls and kept secret until October 18, 1961. Her
SECOND AND THIRD Messages were given only to Loli and Jacinta on June 19,1962 and June 23, 1962. The last
and FOURTH Message was delivered by Michael The Archangel and given only to Conchita on June 18, 1965. All
four Messages were for the whole world. However, there have been several different versions published by
some Garabandal promoters of the THIRD Message, the one of June 23, 1962. Up to now, in the version that
we have always tried to make known, we omitted a very serious sentence...that is..."FEW WILL SEE GOD." It
was omitted because I did not have the proof that Our Blessed Mother really said that. However, I now have
in my hand an actual photo copy of that THIRD Message WRITTEN, SIGNED, AND DATED by both Loli and Jacinta.
Here it is, together with the original Spanish.
June 23, 1962
"The Virgin has told us:
The world continues the same...That it has not changed at all. FEW WILL SEE GOD. They are so few that
it causes The Virgin much sorrow. What a pity that it does not change. The Virgin told us that the
Chastisement is coming seeing that the world is not changing. The cup is filling up. How sad the
Virgin was although She didn't let us see it because She loves us so much and She suffers alone.
She is so good! Be good everyone so that The Virgin will be happy. She told us that We who are
good should pray for those who are bad. Let us pray to God for the world for those who do not know
Him. Be good...be very good everyone?'

"La Virgen nos ha dicho que el mundo
sigue igual; que no se ha cambiado nada; que pocos veran a Dios; son tan pocos que a La Virgen
la da mucha pena que no cambie; La Virgen nos ha dicho que esta Ilegando el castigo; el mundo
no cambia; la copa se esta llenando; Que triste estaba La Virgen! Aunque a nosotros no nos lo
de a ver, porque La Virgin nos quiere y ella lo sufre sola, porque es tan buena. Ser buenos todos
para que La Virgin se ponga contenta. Nos ha dicho que pidamos los que somos buenos por los que
son malos; pidamos aDios por el mundo, por los que no Ie conocen; ser buenos, muy buenos."

"FEW WILL SEE GOD" is conditioned upon whether or not
we... the world... are willing to LIVE
all of the Garabandal Messages so as to hold back the conditional Chastisement that is
threatening all of humanity. How long... how long does Our Blessed Mother have to wait
for us to turn back to Her Divine Son! HERE AND NOW IS OUR LAST CHANCE!
I thank each of you with all my heart for the necessary support I know you will continue
to give us both in generosity and in prayer in order to continue making Our Blessed Mother
more known and loved in the world.
May St. Michael accompany us always particularly when we kneel at the feet of Our Lady.
Pray for me and be sure of my prayers too - GOD BLESS YOU!
