(For the Greater Glory of God)
Fatima - Garabandal Link.
As many followers of Fatima likely know, when the Miracle of the Sun was taking place publicly before the 70,000 crowd on October 13, 1917 at Fatima, Portugal, the three shepherd children were at the same time having a separate vision in the sky.
After the Miracle of the Sun, the three children were shown a series of heavenly scenes. And in the last scene, Our Lady appeared dressed as Our Lady of Mount Carmel with the Holy Baby Jesus in Her arms. She then waved to the three children of Fatima saying, "Good-bye until San Sebastian, Spain!"
I feel, as many do, that Garabandal is the continuation of Fatima. At San Sebastian de Garabandal, Saint Michael first appeared to the visionaries in the evening (8:30 P.M.) of June 18, 1961, exactly 40 years to the day as Fatima’s Lucia on her last day in Aljustrel before leaving for the convent school. That evening, having left her home and paying a last visit to the Cova da Iria, she is said to have seen Our Lady standing at a spot now occupied by the lower steps of the Basilica.
In the sixth apparition at Fatima on October 13, 1917, during the tableaux of visions during the Miracle of the Sun, Our Lady appeared as Our Lady of Mount Carmel with the scapular on her wrist. On July 2, 1961, the Virgin appeared at Garabandal as Our Lady of Mount Carmel with a large brown scapular draped over her right arm.
When Our Lady appeared at Fatima in 1917 she did something
she had not done before: she addressed messages specifically to the entire
world. While she appeared again after Fatima at Beauraing (1932-33) and Banneux
(1933), she did not speak to the world at either of those places. But at
Garabandal we again find this universal appeal. Although Fatima and Garabandal
are separate events there is continuity in the revelations and similarities in
features of the events not found among the other visits of Our Lady during the
It is interesting to note that the 3rd secret was supposed to be released in 1960, and when it was not, Mary appeared at Garabandal in 1961.
See how the world did not heed Mary's Fatima warnings, so she stated them more profoundly at Garabandal.
Fatima and Garabandal, Our Lady's Message for us Today
49:31 watch time. Fr. Luke podcast Nov 1, 2021.
A reflection of our times about the teachings of Fatima & Garabandal as how it relates to today.
Glenn's Description: "I'd love to share video for those who love to deep-dive in Garabandal spirituality. There is nothing new on Garabandal nor there are any speculations about warning nor miracle (those are actually not mentioned in video at all). However Fr. Luke will grab your heart and pull it right on track to love of eucharist and implementing Garabandal spirituality in our day to day lives. God bless."
The message of Fatima and Garabandal are the same. In the words of the late Bishop Joao Pereira, who was bishop in Fatima during the times of the apparitions in Garabandal, "The message of Fatima and Garabandal are the same, The message in Garabandal has just been updated for our times." Our blessed Mother has come down to speak to us so that we may convert and live the Gospel.
Both message put emphasis on the vulnerability of God. How he is being hurt by our sins especially the sins of sacrilege against the Eucharist. In this podcast Fr. Luke will talk about the similarities of the two apparitions and the practical message that we all have to take from them for our daily lives. Pray the Rosary and receive Our Lord with devotion and love!
