any particular position on Garabandal
Not strongly. I incline toward thinking the phenomena were psychological rather than supernatural, but I haven't given it a lot of study.
The only apparition that really influences our family devotions is Our Lady of Guadalupe.

(I am snide and not intellectual today. How are you doing?)
I’m more inclined to think the phenomena were of supernatural origin, but not necessarily of divine/holy origin. I think that context is where I learned the word preternatural. That’s the issue with which I grapple. If it weren’t for Padre Pio having been involved peripherally in that sequence of events, and at least having had on opinion on them (whether or not an apparition), I probably would have dismissed the whole thing long ago.
We also feel quite strongly bonded to Our Lady of Guadalupe. No issues there!
