Product Description

Product Description

Fifty years ago, four young girls in a small Spanish village began falling into rigid trances, marching backward up hills, and levitating, seemingly, inches above the ground. Eyes fixed on a mysterious point in the air, they were mesmerized by something which was invisible to everyone else.
What the girls said they saw--and heard--sent shock waves that are still reverberating today. The messages the four girls claimed to receive revealed a picture of a Catholic church in crisis and a world that faced an earth-shattering future that would unfold in their lifetime.
The girls’ pronouncements about coming trouble in the church and world were met with fierce skepticism from the first. Some charged the girls with being possessed by demons (based on the girls’ strange physical poses and apparent levitation), and others claimed the girls were putting on an act (revealing their true colors when they chose ordinary married lives instead of the convent). There was also a third body of critics: those who believed that a group of girls on the cusp of adolescence in a remote and insular society conjured up a psychodrama which, fueled by the spotlight and mounting frenzy, gained a frightening life of its own.
There was one other possibility--that the strange events in Garabandal, Spain actually did occur, and the girls received an apocalyptic warning for both the church and the modern world.
The warning to the world included a prediction that a newly militant Russia would rise again. The prophecies of Garabandal also foretell a World-Wide Warning and a Global Miracle, whose purpose is to convince a world reeling from one catastrophe to the next that God exists. But the Warning and Miracle, dramatic as they sound, are not even the most unsettling of the messages. One night, the young girls dissolved into screams. During this so-called “Night of the Screams,” the girls say they were shown a tragic chastisement that would befall the entire world if the Warning and Miracle failed to trigger global change.
As disquieting as those messages were, the most shocking message at Garabandal was for the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church. Why were the messages of Garabandal so effectively suppressed? Did it have to do with the fact that the messages presciently warned of coming scandal and turmoil in the Roman Catholic Church itself?
Did a portal open between worlds on a Spanish mountaintop in that summer of 1961? And if so, who opened the door--an angel of God or an angel of darkness? Did a young girl's flight of fancy one summer night spin wildly out of control? Or was it a visitation from God?
Now that the “girls” at the center of this drama are 60-year-old women, should their claims be discredited or re-examined? Are the apparitions bogus or fast-approaching their fulfillment? If the events are false, Garabandal is a fascinating and perhaps tragic human interest story with several explanations. If the events and warnings are true--then what do we do?
By the end of this book, readers can judge whether the visions of four young seers on a mountaintop in Spain were historical fact, a devilish fraud, or the creative confusion of four girls who would spend the rest of their lives trying to escape a human tragicomedy that they themselves had produced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly visionary 26 Jan. 2015

There is a continuum in this book which closely relates to a comforting continuous protective yet warning presence which demands our attention. For those who believe no words are necessary, for those who do not, no words are enough. Read it and reflect, but do not ignore.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best ever written on Garabandal 22 Feb. 2014
By Always Seeking - Published on Amazon.com

I've been reading everything on Garabandal for twenty five years. This book not only puts it all together in a cohesive manner,it reveals information and statements I have not read anywhere else that presents a clearer picture of the whole. Walker asks all the right questions while not shrinking from making all the right connections! I cannot recommend this jewel enough for those seriously interested in this most mysterious ongoing event that should make us all rethink what is truly real in this age of illusions! BRAVO!

Ties together the 20th century apparitions of Our Lady together in a way that's cuts through a lot the confusion surrounding these mysteries. The prophetic messages of Garabandal must be proclaimed.

5.0 out of 5 stars When the Mystical Touches Reality 30 Jun. 2014
By A Thoughtful Consumer - Published on Amazon.com

A very thorough, journalistic approach to the Mary Apparition phenomena. So often the carnival aspect of an Apparition is the focal point of a book, but the author has gone way deeper than that. What really happened at Garabandal? Why doesn't the Church accept this apparition but accepts others? Even though thousands saw and recorded miracles in real time, why did the visionaries recant their Mary contacts, yet years later changed their Church testimony to again claim Mary contact? The various apparitions lasted for about 4 years and you would think that it would be a wonderful experience for anyone involved. But it turned sour before it was even done. Part of the second Message, Mary says many priests, bishops and cardinals are on the road to perdition and everyone needs to pray for them. Whether for this reason or not, the Church took a skeptical attitude to this apparition and tried to squelch it thru hard handed interrogation of the girls and attempting to control the interpretation. The girls were under such pressure to call up the apparition for visiting pilgrims and townspeople that they occasionally faked ecstasies so as not to disappoint. There was unequal distribution of 'Mary time' between the four girls which led to jealousy between them. Even a plot was hatched to fake a miracle to even up the attention. Besides these issues, townspeople and friends were conscience of unequal 'Mary time' and criticized the girls over it.

The girls got all the Messages and warnings out but what became of them after Mary left? Why didn't they join religious orders? They had actually talked to creatures of veneration. They should all be qualified and sought after. Why did they opt for an ordinary life? Why did they leave Garabandal never to return? The author does a great job answering all these questions.

While Garabandal is the central theme of the book it actually covers Fatima and Medjugorje in fair depth also. Of particular interest is the assassination attempt on Pope John Paul and exactly how Fatima saved him from death and what part he next played in fulfilling Fatima's 50 year old neglected heavenly requests. The author ties all three apparitions together and then correlates the history of the 20th century to the combined Apparition prophesies and requests. Once again in a professional and journalistic manner.

As a side note, one of the touchstone characters of the Garabandal phenomena was a blind guy named Joey Lomangino. He was present at some of the Garabandal apparitions and was told on the spot by Mary, thru one of the entranced visionaries, he would get new eyes just before the major 'Miracle' occurred so that he could see it. After a lifetime of devotion to the Garabandal ideas, Joey died on June 8, 2014...amazingly on the 53 year anniversary of St. Michael making his first appearance at Garabandal. But no prophesied 'Miracle' occurred during his life and he died blind. So has the Message of Garabandal been shown as false or have enough hearts been consecrated to Mary to avert heavenly disaster? You decide.

Great book, one of the best on the subject. The subject and players are all treated with fairness and dignity. Good book, good read.
