Posted by Glenn who has an apostolate/mission towards disseminating the Garabandal Story and is close to both Conchita and Joey Lomangino.
June 18,2014 - Joey Lomangino 53 years ago today, St. Michael the Arch Angel appeared in Garabandal. Today unfortunately, this is not as happy an occasion. It is with a broken heart, and the immense sadness that I regretfully announce the passing away of Joey Lomangino. I have confirmed this story with family, friends and Conchita. As I am still in shock, I will have nothing more to say at this time, other than referring to a prophecy and the bible. On December 6, 1962,Conchi...ta had a 90 minute ecstasy around 5:30 in the afternoon after which, she provided two more pieces of information regarding the Miracle: 1) One day, before the Miracle, something will happen that will cause many people to stop believing in the apparitions of Garabandal. The doubts and desertions will not be due to an excessive delay of the Miracle. I cannot answer if Joey had the same experience of seeing the Miracle as Padre Pio did, just prior to his death, or with his new heavenly eyes, only God knows. I thank God for the priviledge of knowing Joey,and working side by side with him.I still believe in the prophecies of the Warning, Miracle,and Chastisement. I ask you all to pray for Joey. "For My thoughts are not your thoughts nor your ways My ways. For as the heavens are exalted above the earth, so are My ways exalted above your ways, and My thoughts above your thoughts." (Is. 55: 8-9)
This Religion Forum thread is labeled “Catholic Caucus” meaning if you are not currently, actively Catholic then do not post on this thread.
I don’t see this Joey in the Book of Life...
No, seriously, who is he?
"We must make many sacrifices, perform much penance, and visit the Blessed Sacrament frequently. But first, we must lead good lives. If we do not, a chastisement will befall us. The cup is already filling up, and if we do not change, a very great chastisement will come upon us... As my Message of the 18th of October has not been complied with, and as it has not been made known to the world, I am telling you that this is the last one. Previously, the Cup was filling; now, it is brimming over. Many cardinals, many bishops, many priests are following the road to perdition, and with them they are taking many more souls. Ever less importance is being given to the Holy Eucharist. We should turn the wrath of God away from us by our own efforts. If you ask His forgiveness with a sincere heart. He will pardon you. I, your Mother, through the intercession of St. Michael the Archangel, wish to tell you that you should make amends. You are now being given the last warnings. I love you very much, and I do not want your condemnation. Ask Us sincerely and We shall grant your plea. You must make more sacrifices. Reflect on the Passion of Jesus."
Divine or not, prophecy or guesswork, who can deny that such things have been borne out as true?
The Garabandal Prophecies predicted four supernatural events:
A worldwide warning to be experienced by everyone on earth. Its purpose would be to call humanity to amend its behavior and return to God.
A great miracle that will occur in the late winter or early spring within one year after the warning.
A Permanent sign that will remain for all time at a pine grove near Garabandal.
A terrible chastisement or punishment that is conditional to some extent, based upon how well mankind heeds the messages of Garabandal.
Mary Loli was the only seer, who knew the year of the warning. However, it is Conchita, one of the other visionaries, who knows the nature of the great miracle as well as the exact date and she has been charged with announcing this to the world eight days before it happens.
The “miracle,” it was claimed, would occur within a year of the “warning”.
It doesnt appear you are Catholic, please dont post in Catholic Caucus threads.
I’m on a bunch of catholic lists. Trying to learn more about catholicism and my girl is catholic. Been with her 20+ years.
Any of that count?
I have nothing disparaging to say about Catholics or Catholicism.
And, if I had kids they would be in catholic school.
you can participate in this thread.
In fact, I think I use to be on one of your ping lists.
Haven’t had a ping from you in maybe a year.
Don’t understand how people become sainted and love to learn.
most who are familar with the garabandal apparitions,
would know that Joey Lomangino became intertwined with the story of the coming “Miracle” where Conchita(the main visionary of 3 girls) told Joey(blind man) that his eyesight would be restored at the future public Miracle site as told to her by the Blessed Virgin Mary. Since he has died today that kind of collapses the validity of the Garabandal apparitions.
The Church has 3 declarations or options when judging apparitions:
1) Supernatural occurence (approved)
2) nothing supernatural in evidence(nothing special:could change)
3) has elements against the faith(condemned)
Garabandal although it had many events occur during the apparitions that seemed supernatural. Those events were deemed as things that devils(former angels) had the power to do. Supernatural goes beyond mere parlor tricks performed by evil spirit beings.
I’m doing The Camino Santiago next year. Looming forward to seeing the saints at various points, learning more about Catholicism, my faith, myself and maybe come a closer to God.
Should be kewel.
