What is the Miracle of Garabandal? Millions of Healings

For many years now, I’ve been discussing three supernatural events, three great blessings that God gives to the world, just before the end times begin: The Warning, Consolation, and Miracle. As I have said many times for many years, the Warning occurs on Good Friday. I’ve gotten the year wrong several times now, but I’ve always said it would occur on Good Friday. Then the Consolation occurs on Easter Sunday, two days later. The third event, the Miracle of Garabandal, occurs on the feast of Blessed Imelda Lambertini, either on her feast day or the vigil, in May.

What is the Miracle of Garabandal? It is an event predicted in the apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Garabandal. It was said that the Miracle would heal everyone present at Garabandal for the event, and that it would result in many conversions of unbelievers worldwide, and that a permanent miraculous sign would be left at Garabandal.

But my interpretation of that event goes further. I believe that the Miracle will not only heal persons present at Garabandal for the Miracle, but also persons throughout the world. For the healing of some limited number of persons in one place would not result, in this sinful unbelieving world, in so many conversions worldwide. It was also said that this Miracle would be the greatest Miracle on earth since the time of Christ. Therefore, I believe that the Miracle of Garabandal is the miraculous healing of millions of persons throughout the world by God, all at the same time, on the day and time of the Miracle of Garabandal, which is also the third secret of Medjugorje.

Not everyone who is ill or injured will be healed. But so many healings will take place that everyone will know one or more persons who are healed. Then hundreds of millions of persons will be converted to belief in God and many of them will be converted to belief in Christianity. And lukewarm or fallen away Christians, many of them but not all, will be renewed in their faith in Christ.

But the Permanent Miraculous Sign left at Garabandal after the Miracle of Healings will not be unique. Rather, the same type of Signs will be left at sites of true apparitions of Mary throughout the world, including Medjugorje, Fatima, Lourdes, Guadalupe, and many others. These Signs will remain as a witness to this great Miracle, until the end of time.

Who will be healed? I think that the repentant are much more likely to be healed. But there is no guarantee. God chooses whom He will heal and whom He will not heal. But if you are unrepentant from serious sin, I don’t see how you can hope to be healed by God, whom you have rejected by grave unrepentant sin.

For those who are not healed, if you repent of your sins first, then you might travel to one of the places of Permanent Miraculous Signs, and possibly obtain healing there. But in any case, not every repentant person will be healed.

Pray. Practice self-denial in all things. Do works of loving mercy toward your neighbors in need.

As Mary said at La Salette: “God is going to strike in a manner without example. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth! God is going to exhaust His wrath, and no one will be able to take himself away from so many afflictions combined.”

“fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Hell.” (Mt 10:28).

    Since Mirjana is supposed to reveal the secrets to Fr. Petar Ljubic 10 days before they happen, then fast for 7 days before he is to reveal it to the world, if Good Friday 2017 is the day of the Warning, she would have revealed it to him yesterday or today.

  2. Matt says:

    I find is so difficult to understand and accept that after the first three supernatural events, with millions being healed and mass conversions, and with permanent supernatural Great Signs, that many will still reject God.

    I understand that God does not force anyone to convert but wouldn’t these events move nearly all people to convert? Why do so many backslide to sin afterwards with the Great signs permanently there as evidence of God’s existence and healing?

    • Ron Conte says:

      People are fallen sinners. Why did the Israelites sin, after seeing the miracles that God did to free them from slavery in Egypt? The world is full of persons who are very selfish, and who are attached to grave sins.

  3. Matt says:

    God has performed countless miracles throughout the History of the World. I get it. However, this future revealed event is different. God will leave permanent indestructible miraculous signs that has never before been seen on Earth. Many will be healed visiting this supernatural sign. What I don’t understand is that even with this Great Sign, televised, and millions visiting it, still, people will largely reject God and then the tribulations have to happen. It just saddens me that humanity is so far gone and entrenched in grave sin that we all have to endure the tribulations in what the visionaries of Medjugorje describe as “really unpleasant.”
