Garabandal. Interview with Conchita by Father Laffineur

Visionaries about the End of times

(Excerpt from: Eusebio García de Pesquera O.F.M. «She Went in Haste to the Mountain», Bk.III, Ch.XI: Farewell in the Rain.)

‹…›

Although the one thing that had nothing to do with the other, on the day after Bishop Puchol’s installation, Conchita wrote to Fr. Laffineur, to communicate her great joy:

«My mother has allowed me to enter into the convent. For me, it is a great thing to be able to consecrate myself completely to Christ like this — from my 16th year — for the rest of my life . . . Pray for me, so that I will be able to go as soon as possible to the Missionary Sisters of the Discalced Carmelites.»


Thinking perhaps that Conchita’s departure was imminent, Fr. Laffineur arranged another trip to Spain, to obtain certain clarifications from her. The meeting took place in Torrelavega (Santander) on September 8th, the feast of the Nativity of Mary.

With Fr. Laffineur were some travel companions who served as witnesses; at Conchita’s side, as usual, was her mother Aniceta. Fr. Laffineur submitted 45 questions to the young girl and carefully recorded her answers. Part of these have been published in the L’Etoile dans la Montagne; the rest have been reserved for the future.

These are the most interesting of the ones that have been published:

— «Yes, I wrote the date of the Miracle to the bishop. (It seems that this letter never came into the hands of Bishop Beitia.)

— I had a locution on July 2nd. I already explained it to you by letter. And I had another on the 18th of the same month; I gave that in writing too.

— My companions and I thought about the convent from the first days of the apparitions. No priest put it into our minds.

— The Pope will see the Miracle, wherever he is; Padre Pio will see it too.

— Yes, the Council will have an extraordinary outcome.

— After Paul VI, there remain only two popes. Following that, the ‘end of times,’ which is not the same as the ‘end of the world.’ I do not understand this well, but the Virgin told it to me like this.

— My leaving Garabandal is no obstacle to announcing the date of the Miracle. I’ll be able to tell the date to my superior, and if necessary, also to my spiritual director . . .

— After the miracle, a chapel will be built in honor of St. Michael the Archangel.[2] I would prefer that it would not be done as at Lourdes, which I got to know in May of 1963; I would like it to be more simple and unadorned.

— The greatest danger for the village of Garabandal is pride.

— Mari Cruz certainly saw the Virgin. Her denials today are due to the mysterious work of the devil. After the Miracle, she will reaffirm the truth of her ecstasies.

— The best time to go to Garabandal will be when the four of us have left the village; then it will be solely for the Virgin.»


[2] Obviously this has nothing to do with the chapel built by some people below the Pines in September of 1967.
