Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, O.F.M. Cap
Pray unceasingly. We must empty Purgatory.
Padre Pio and Garabandal
«My Dear Children, At 9 o'clock in the morning, the Holy Virgin told me to say to you: “O blessed young girls of San Sebastian de Garabandal! I promise you that I will be with you until the end of the centuries [possibly 'end of the times'?], and you will be with me during the end of the world. And later, united with me in the glory of paradise.”
I am sending you a copy of the holy rosary of Fatima, which the Virgin told me to send you. The rosary was composed by the Virgin and should be propagated for the salvation of sinners and preservation of humanity from the terrible punishments with which the Good God is threatening it.
I give you only one counsel: Pray and make others pray, because the world is at the beginning of perdition. They do not believe in you or in your conversations with the Lady in White … They will believe when it will be too late.»
Conchita mentioned that Padre Pio, during her visit with him, said to her
"The great wonder of God [Miracle] must be paid for with much blood throughout Europe."
[Since this information is new to many English readers we (Barry Hanratty) contacted Mr. Weber to confirm the source. He responded that Conchita mentioned it in the presence of his mother, Eloise Deguia and himself, and that his mother wrote it down word for word.]
