The Warning of Garabandal is an event predicted by the visionaries of Garabandal, Spain, who had visions and messages from the Blessed Virgin Mary in the 1960’s. The Warning is an event whereby God shows each person the sins on their conscience, and they are given the grace to repent, if they so choose. Many will repent with great sorrow, and thereby begin the path of holiness. Those who refuse to repent will suddenly become much more sinful.
What will happen in politics as a result of the Warning?
I laugh at talk nowadays about a red wave, meaning an increase in voters, in the U.S., voting conservative (red), instead of democrat (blue). What the Warning will cause is a huge increase in voters showing concern for morality in politics: rejecting abortion, rejecting sinful politicians, rejecting same-sex marriage, and gender ideology. Conservatives are generally seen as being more religious and more friendly to religious freedoms, and less open to legalized abortion and other sins. So the Warning will cause a vast increase in conservative voting, giving the Republican party an opportunity to make some changes for the better in the U.S.
I certainly hope the Warning happens soon. But I don’t see any years that are a good fit for that event until the early 2020’s. At this point, I just don’t have a predicted date for that event.
The Warning will cause an upheaval in politics in many ways. Some politicians will repent, and will change their views. So we will suddenly have more politicians who are prolife. Others will feign repentance, when they see how much support repentant politicians receive. Some will utterly reject repentance, and work harder than ever to protect and promote grave sins.
Some political leaders, those who are particularly sinful, will die of shock at seeing their sins at the Warning. This will leave more than a few vacancies, to be filled by the renewed electorate. It’s hard to know exactly what politicians will vote for, after the Warning. They are still using their own minds and hearts, which can err substantially. They are poorly catechized as to what is right or wrong. I hope they will do more good than harm.
In religion, the Warning will spur many of the papal critics to increase their opposition to Pope Francis (or to the next Pope, if the Warning is later). They will say that the Warning did not correct them for their opposition to the Pope. Well, that is because the Warning only shows you the sins on your conscience. If you have a sincere but mistaken conscience, you will not be corrected on that point. So they will mistakenly think that the Warning is confirming their work, when it is not.
I wonder if, in some nations where conservatism has gone too far, whether the Warning will bring a move toward the center in their political system. That could be the case, since conservatives can err in various ways, and a more moderate position, may be better on some questions.
