3 Days of Darkness Antichrist Apostasy Chastisement Fatima Garabandal Mary Miracle Warning

Expected Date of the Miracle: 13 April 2017

This article is being written exactly one year before the predicted date, on the Feast Day of St. Hermenegild, a martyr of the Eucharist. The date proposed herein is my theological opinion based on interpretation of prophecy, and is therefore subject to error. With the recent release of Amoris Laetitia, which not only allows sacrilegious Holy Communion, but actually promotes it (see the first rotten fruits here), a Eucharist oriented saint is very fitting to discuss.

First, let’s review the conditions or rules on which the Miracle prophesied at Garabandal will occur. This is a summary, with the detailed comments by the seer at the end of this article. Another newspaper article with interviews of the seers is here.

  1. An ‘event in the Church that happens very rarely and has never happened in my lifetime. It is not new or stupendous only rare, like the definition of a dogma – something like that in that it will affect the entire Church.’ (7 February 1974 Conchita interview)
  2. On a Thursday at 8:30 p.m.
  3. In the months of March, April or May (but not February or June)
  4. Between (inclusive) the 8th and the 16th of the month
  5. On a feast-day of a martyred saint for the Eucharist

Let’s start with the martyred saint of the Eucharist which fits within the date parameters described. St. Hermenegild, whose Feast Day is April 13th on the 1962 (Tridentine) calendar, is a little known saint. The short biography on St. Hermenegild is from the 1962 Divine Office (Roman Breviary) as printed by Baronius Press, which takes its text from the Book of Dialogues of Pope St. Gregory, Book 3, chapter 31.

King Hermenegild, son of Leovigild, king of the Visigoths, was converted from the Arian heresy to the Catholic faith by the preaching of that most worthy man Leander, bishop of Seville and one of my greatest friends. Hermenegild’s father was an Arian, and tried first to persuade him by promises and then to terrify him through threats to return to that heresy. But when Hermenegild continued to answer that he could never abandon the true faith now that he had come to know it, his angry father deprived him of his kingdom, took away all his possessions, and shut him up under strict guard, with his neck and hands chained. And so the young king Hermenegild began to despise the kingdom of earth and eagerly seek the kingdom of heaven. Lying bound in sackcloth, he poured forth prayers to almighty God to give him strength. When Easter came, his treacherous father sent an Arian bishop to him in the middle of the night, to have Hermenegild receive sacrilegiously consecrated Communion from this bishop’s hands and so be restored to his father’s favor. But, as a man devoted to God, he gave the Arian bishop the rebuke he deserved and refused his offer with fitting indignation. When the bishop returned, Hermenegild’s Arian father was enraged and at once sent his servants, who killed this staunch Confessor of God where he lay imprisoned.

St. Hermenegild is particularly fitting as he refused sacrilegious Communion from a heretic bishop, quite appropriate in today’s environment as poisoned by Amoris Laetitia, where sacrilegious Communion (those in ‘irregular unions’) is promoted by a heretic bishop (wearing a stolen white), Bergoglio. In fact, given the Arian heresy denied that Jesus was Divine, so too will Bergoglio deny Jesus’ Divinity as part of his establishing the one-world religion which will ultimately worship the Antichrist. Bergoglio will have to do so to get Muslims and pagans such as Buddhists and Hindus to agree and join this man-made religion, inspired by Satan.

What is so special about 13 April in the year 2017?

First, April 13 is Holy Thursday in 2017, thus commemorates the very institution of the Eucharist by Jesus at the Last Supper. That is an ‘event’ of great importance, as the martyr of the Eucharist died on the very day that the Eucharist was instituted. I have not checked exactly how often that this saint’s Feast Day occurs on Holy Thursday (maybe someone could do that work?), but that certainly would be rare. Second, the priesthood was also instituted on that day, with the Apostles being bishops, therefore a heretic bishop, another Judas, contributing to the martyrdom fits that symbolism well, with Bergoglio playing Judas all too well today. Lastly, the martyr died for the Easter feast and Holy Thursday is part of the triduum which leads to Easter, which is another fitting linkage.

Also interesting about 2017 is that both the Orthodox and Catholics celebrate Easter on the same day, April 16, which is not all that common given each uses a different calculation for setting the date of Easter. April 16 also happens to be Pope Benedict XVI’s birthday, when he will turn 90 if he is still alive. Note that Pope Benedict XVI is the martyred ‘bishop in white’ in the vision of the third secret of Fatima. The combination of all of these events together is certainly rare although I haven’t done a year by year analysis to prove that.

As a side note of importance, that means the Warning can occur anytime from now up until the day before, but that will be covered in a separate article. And that also means the Chastisement (3 Days of Darkness – blessed candles in homes) will occur within one year after that date.

With the Church accelerating and deepening its apostasy given Amoris Laetitia, these major events cannot be too far off now as God’s Justice must arrive to wake us up. Feel free to comment of course. We will know the answer in one year.


The “extremely great” Miracle which Conchita mentions in her Diary is more fully discussed in the notes she gave Francisco Sanchez-Ventura, author of The Apparitions of Garabandal:

“I am the only one to whom the Blessed Virgin spoke of the Miracle. She forbade me to say what it will consist of. I can’t announce the date either until eight days before it is due to occur. What I can reveal is that it will coincide with an event in the Church and with the feast of a saint, martyr of the Eucharist; that it will take place at 8:30 on a Thursday evening; that it will be visable to all those who are in the village and surrounding mountains; that the sick who are present will be cured and the incredulous will believe. It will be the greatest miracle that Jesus will have performed for the world. There won’t be the slightest doubt that it comes from God and that it is for the good of mankind. A sign of the Miracle—un señal del milagro—which it will be possible to film or televise, will remain forever—para siempre—at the pines.”

On September 14, 1965, Conchita said: “The sign that will remain forever at the pines is something we will be able to photograph, televise and see, but not touch. It will be evident that it is not a thing of this world but from God.” At another time, concerning the Great Miracle, she added that, “it would last about 15 minutes.”

On August 10, 1971, while talking to a group of Americans, she offered this revealing information: “It will take place on or between the eighth and sixteenth of March, April or May. It will not happen in February or June.”

      • That’s amazing,RC, that you should specify this date and feast! I have had a “thing” about April 13th for many years, and wondered if this may be the Eucharistic saint whose feast would coiincide with the day of the future Miracle. Of course there is Our Lady’s special connection with the 13th, too, as at Fatima.

  • Do you know what? You probably won’t find this all that amazing but, before I had even read this interpretation tonight, I had started to discuss it with mum today. We both poured over the newspaper clippings you provided dating back to the 60’s and 70’s which gave various interview answers of the girls. It was from those reports that I noticed the comment about the date falling on a great event in the church and I immediately proposed that it might be when Catholics and Orthodox celebrate Easter on the same date, which I thought was next year for some reason. I don’t know what made me think of that. So I’m delighted to read this interpretation. The question is what to do with that information, especially as events occur, one after the other, which make it seem more probable and confirm this. My mum has desired to go the Pines at the time of the miracle for over 20 years now, with my sister (for her healing).Now I’m wondering whether my husband needs to get there too.I wouldn’t be surprised if God answered me on this soon. How that will happen I have no idea! Especially as regards my husband but as we know, God has His Ways! For myself, I will just be pleased to have The Warning so that God can effect in my soul what my limited sensibilities cannot.

    • Hi Admin! Thank you for taking our prayer intentions to Virgin Mother for us. Your flight landing at the exact time that the Exhortation was released is no coincidence. Thank you for laying our prayers at her feet.

  • Remember Joey Lomangino? Because of his long time blindness he was promised by Our Blessed Mother Mary Ever Virgin to be given new eyes on the day of the Miracle in which he would see perpetually?
    He passed away on june 18th, 2014.
    What does this mean?
    A possibility is that The Miracle and The First Resurrection will happen on the same day.

    Revelation 20:4-6Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)

    4 And I saw seats; and they sat upon them; and judgment was given unto them; and the souls of them that were beheaded for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and who had not adored the beast nor his image, nor received his character on their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
    5 The rest of the dead lived not, till the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
    6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection. In these the second death hath no power; but they shall be priests of God and of Christ; and shall reign with him a thousand years.

    • MS, I wouldn’t be to concerned about the prophecy regarding Joey and his new eyes. Joey may not get his new physical eyes until the end of the world. But I am certain as soon as he died he received spiritual eye sight than surpasses the capability of the best of physical eye sight.
      And I feel certain that all the saints and angels in heaven will witness the great miracle in far greater detail than anyone on earth will be able to.

  • MS, the problem with that is that the resurrection comes after the period of Chastisement which follows the Miracle. We are left with two possibilities: 1) Heaven decided to give Joey his eyes ahead of time by taking him home early. or 2) the period of Tribulation (Chastisement) was postponed / moved ahead 3 years.

  • I feel disappointed in Garabandal because it is now so many years since the alleged apparitions and nothing ever happens. There will probably be no Warning,even though such a Warning is desperately needed today, and no Miracle. 2017 will probably come and go with nothing special in world affairs. The same disappointment extends to Medjurgorge, where there are supposed 10 secrets to be released at times only known to the seers. All we have is thousands of repetitive, banal messages allegedly transmitted to the seers for every month since 1981.

    Catholics should only put their trust in Church approved messages such as Fatima, Lourdes, La Salette and Akita, and or course in bible prophecy as contained in the Apocalypse, Daniel, Christ’s end-times Olivet discourse and end-time prophecies in St Paul’s and St Peter’s letters. There is sufficient evidence from these reliable sources that we are living in the time of the Great Apostasy and the coming of the Antichrist. Furthermore, the Antichrist might well be the current corporate high level Masonic wickedness in high places, and that Satan does not actually need a personal Antichrist to net the maximum amount of souls for Hell. The smart technology and looming cashless New World Order society rising before our very eyes seems to be the fulfillment of Apocalypse 13.

    • Hi John, you have run out of patience, so pray for more perseverance. Joey can see perfectly now, don’t you think? The prophecy was not fulfilled in the way you interpreted it. The Bible says not to despise prophecy but test the spirits and hold fast to what is good. The corrupted Church will not approve anything any more, so don’t wrongly conclude that you should ignore God’s Prophetic Word. Here is a good example – BEFORE Fatima was approved the Church was told to consecrate Russia (by name) or suffer the consequences. The Church did not obey and WW2 was the result. The Church didn’t obey after the approval either. Russia – atheism and communism – has now spread throughout the world as prophesied.

      So if you want some details then, read the secrets of La Salette to see what’s coming. You will see many of the major problems described there.

      The Church teaches that the Antichrist is a specific person, not just a “system.” He will show up soon, and his name is Maitreya of Share International.

      Yes, the cashless society is the setup for the mark of the beast in Revelation 13. Expect that shortly after April 2017 (the Miracle). So also expect the world economy to completely crash before then too. Buy your supplies now before the bank closures.

  • Oh John Oglander, you will not be disappointed!! Quite the opposite. God bless you! You made me chuckle to think of how amazed you will be at the Miracle! We have all waited as long as you, some longer perhaps. Maybe you are not aware that The Warning is also known as “The Great Day of Mercy” or the “Illumination of Conscience”.And that St. Faustina refers to it through revelations given to her by Jesus and also so did St. Padre Pio. It WILL happen. There are actually plenty of other church approved prophecies which point to what’s happening as well, such as Blessed Catherine Emmerich. Our Lady of Good Success is an eye opener! Add those to what you already know.
    As far as Revelations goes, the Warning is in there too. God helped me to find and ‘see it’. Oh what marvels the Lord has been doing!! When the Day of the Warning arrives, you will wish you had longer so you could have converted and warned more souls beforehand. Then we will all realise how fast the time went; when it actually is that Day. And how we idled our time away…Focus on prayer and conversion and you will have all the joy (amidst sorrow) that you need for now. God bless you. He will heal your pain.

    • And one more thing, John: strength from the Eucharist! Strength from the Eucharist! You need food for the journey!

  • John, you are missing some big things here. First, you have not been looking at the right things in your attempt to discern Garabandal and Medjugorje. You of course were hoping these were of God but you conditioned your judgment upon certain events predicted coming to pass. This backwards. What if the Ninevites had taken this approach to Jonah’s prophecy of doom? What if they waited to discern the message?! Why are you doubting the Warning? If as you say “we need it” your doubt about its occurrence then is to make God at fault. God will always accomplish what we need without fail. And why should you be disappointed that we have been given more time to prepare ourselves before the great trial, or that Joey L. perhaps got his eye sight sooner than expected? I think it was for the same reason the predicted three days and three nights predicted that Our Lord would be in the tomb turned out to be only parts of three days and nights (Roman reckoning!). In that case it was the earnest prayers of Holy Mary that altered the outcome. Heaven is just as much fearful of man becoming caught up in Determinism as in thinking all depends upon man. Should those in Nineveh who were oppressed by the evil around them and crying out under its oppression have been disappointed that judgment did not fall upon the city as Jonah had predicted? Of course there were those scoffers who mocked and discounted the prophet Jonah when what was predicted did not come to pass. (Many will be among that same crowd today!) But the historical record reveals Jonah’s message of doom changed world history. (For those interested, Nineveh’s repentance took place under the reign of Adad-niari III who as a result instituted a major monotheistic reform.) The Assyrians left off their military pursuits and threats to Israel for 70 years and did not actually attack Israel for a hundred years. John, look at the fruits of Garabandal and Medjugorje! I would venture to say without those two sites there would likely be no remnant Church alive today. I cannot see how this site would be in existence. I know I and my family would not be Catholic! John, if your “we need this” came from God (and I am sure it did!) then you have all the proof you need in accepting the certainty of the Warning/Enlightenment! Don’t doubt in the darkness what God showed you in the light. We all tend to do this at times.

  • Thank you to Donna and Dave’s replies. I long for the Second Coming of Christ. I become so disheartened at all the rubbish coming out of the Vatican, such as Amoris Laetitia, as well as the endless lies i the media about world events, such as the cover-up of the real truth about 9/11. We hear so much about God’s infinite mercy, which is correct. However we need God’s merciful justice as well. My greatest fear is of souls going to Hell, a truth vividly described in the First Secret of Fatima. Millions of souls are falling into Hell every week. If the Warning occurred as prophesied, millions of souls of people alive today would be given a second chance to be saved from Hell. This would be the greatest act of mercy since the Crucifixion and Resurrection. It is supposed to happen in the spring. I hope that the warning comes before the end of May this year!

    • John, just further to what Donna and Dave had said, we have entered that period of time predicted at Garabandal. In the late 1960s Our Lady told Conchita that only three popes remained until “the end of time” (ie. after the papacy of John Paul II). This has Biblical significance. The full scriptural term is “the end of the time of the gentiles” which indicates the closing of the ages ruled by the gentiles, which also means the completion of Satan’s reign in the world, to be followed by the establishment of the Kingdom of God, or the fulfillment of scriptural prophecy.

      Historically, I have noticed that certain prophecies occur within a 40 year period, or one generation. The fall of Jerusalem, for example, happened in 70 AD forty years after Our Lord’s prediction around 30AD. When Our Blessed Mother appeared at the Rue de Bac , Paris, in 1830, she foretold the misfortunes soon to overwhelm France. Forty years later further revolution took place with bloody persecution of the Church in 1870.

      So when the 40th anniversary of Garabandal occurred in 2001, I was expecting something monumental. Right on schedule came 9/11, the turning point of our modern era which has paved the way for all that has since transpired. Interestingly, Pope John Paul II died in April 2005, only seven weeks after the death of Sister Lucia of Fatima, which heralded this closing period of history which will culminate with God’s final acts of Mercy, the Warning and the Great Miracle. The length of time known as “the end of time” is an unknown quantity. Only the Father knows the day and the hour. However, we can be certain that we live in the very moment preceding Christ’s Return, and let no-one persuade you otherwise! Jesus reproached the people of His generation for not recognizing the signs of the time!

      • Greetings Chris! Very interesting observations you have made with the 40 years fulfillments of Rue di Bac and also Garabandal! 9/11, planned and directed by Dick Cheney and his gang of evil Satanically led Neo-Cons in the US (who have been able to so completely fool so many Laodicean American Christians) opened the door for the rise radical Muslim hatred for the West and Christians in particular. So what began in 2009 with the Obama Presidency as a seven year Tribulation for Christians became the GREAT Tribulation for Christians on December 22, 2012 (revealed to MDM). This year (2016) will conclude America’s 7 year judgment and I feel it will be very severe! I see no elections this Fall but only blood in our streets. The US Catholic bishops and priests who by their stand down in the election of 2008 and again in 2012, which insured the 8 year presidency of the vile morally perverted Satanist Obama will be the first to be eliminated. Obama, couched his bloody plan before the Fall elections in a sadistic humor at the recent Journalist Dinner, mentioning his own “Red Wedding” that he would “pull off” before he leaves office. This he detailed after declaring that “the end of the Republic never looked so good!” See for yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NO51lAX5uec What follows America’s judgment at the hands of the one “Catholic” bishops and their blind followers put into office for 8 years will be the 42 months/1290 day GREAT Tribulation of Revelation and Heaven’s Judgment upon the Seat of Anti-Christ and all his “Catholic” followers including Luciferians like Francis who is preparing for his entrance onto the world stage.

        I do want to make a point, Chris, about the supposed death of “Sister Lucia” in 2005. This was not the real sister Lucia but an imposter trotted out 1959 to deny the true Fatima message. Please look at the striking evidence here: http://traditioninaction.org/HotTopics/g12htArt2_TwoSisterLucys.htm

        The real Lucia was completely secluded by 1958 and likely murdered by the illuminati. The silence of the Church on this outrage is beyond words to describe as is its silence and obscuring, discounting and even denying the multitude of signs and prophecies given revealing we are are not only in the End Times (beginning in 1948 with the “budding” of Israel – Matthew 24:32-34) but at very door of END of the End Times, THE 3 1/2 year GREAT TRIBULATION itself! So what’s the reason that bishops and priests are not informing and warning their people of this period of grave danger? The reason is their OWN personal Resistance and Rejection of and Indifference to the calls and revelations of Heaven and the very Holy Spirit Himself who has spoken to these messengers often through Our Lady Herself! These will all face a very severe judgment for miserably failing those God has entrusted to them as it has been this one great sin among the clerics that has left the Church SO COMPLETELY VULNERABLE to Satan’s present unprecedented attack upon the Church and the entire world in the last 100 years. The “Church” in its pride has not recognized or declared any Heaven sent revelation (even those clearly meant for PUBLIC FAITH!) to be “certainly of God” and that includes FATIMA! “Worthy of devotion” is NOT a determination of divine origin! That is why bishops and priest feel they can say even Fatima is not required to be believed. THEY LIE! WE ALL HAVE OBLIGATIONS OF DISCERNMENT BEYOND WHAT THE CHURCH REQUIRES! FOR BISHOPS AND PRIESTS TO SAY WE HAVE NO OBLIGATIONS BEYOND WHAT THE CHURCH REQUIRES MEANS THEY HAVE MADE THE CHURCH THEIR GOD WHICH IS BLATANT IDOLATRY. The Catholic Catechism (even the Vatican II one) also condemns them: The Catechism (Par. 67) plainly says that the faithful know how to properly discern such Heaven sent revelations. This reveals that our Church leaders who do not make such discernments ARE UNFAITHFUL! – PERIOD!

  • I fear you are neglecting a few things. “And from the time when the continual sacrifice is taken away and the abomination unto desolation shall be set up, there shall be 1290 days” (Dan. 12:11)
    The abomination is the false church which is not yet reigning. It is set up in “half the week” or three and a half years into his usurped reign(Francis). That will be this September 2016. Regarding the “Warning” which is the coming of the Son of Man, Christ IS coming to judge the living, an event must preceed this “the sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great and manifest day of the Lord come.” (Acts 2:20 see Joel 2:30-32 and Apoc. 6:12). For these two circumstances to happen at the same time there would be required a simultaneous lunar and solar eclipse. Since this is not possible with the heavenly bodies of only the sun, earth, and moon, we will have to wait until another heavenly body (Wormwood/Nibiru) passes between the sun and earth on the night of a full moon for these Scriptures to be fulfilled. Our answer is to remain docile to the Holy Ghost and “praying at all times that we may be found worthy to escape these things.” (Luke 21: 36) God has prepared places in the wilderness for us as He said He would (Apoc. 12:6) but we have to be anticipating His lead so we can flee when we see the abomination standing in the holy place.(A false church as if it is THE church.) Watch!

    • No, the abomination is when the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Mass, the daily Sacrifice, is stopped. That can happen anytime now, based on what Francis does.

      In addition, a large comet-planet (Nibiru), which I have seen and will post about, can come between the earth and the sun. In fact that will come very close to the Earth but not hit us otherwise we would be wiped out, and God will not allow that.

      • About the Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Mass:

        The author of One Peter Five (Dr. Maike Hickson) has published a conversation which she had yesterday (Pentecost 2016) with Father Ingo Dolliver. He is a close friend of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.

        Shortly after the Vatican released the third secret, Cardinal Ratzinger had this to say to Father Dolliver:

        “…the published part of the secret is authentic…”There is more than what we published.” …”The unpublished part of the Secret speaks of a bad council and a bad Mass that was to come in the future.” (published w/permission Fr. Dolliver)

        https://www.onepeterfive.com/cardinal-ratzinger-not-published-whole-third-secret-fatima/

        • Thanks for the info. No surprise to me as I have long known and also believed what Antonio Socci said in his book the Fourth Secret of Fatima.

  • Dear Remnant Clergy, Thank you so very much for your comment about Bayside. I also believe it. It is so helpful for me to read your note.

    I went there in the very beginning and continued going to the vigils with my husband and children for years. So much ‘flak’ about it has been delivered to me. I’m afraid to mention it to clergy. Thus, my gratitude …..

      • I agree RC, I closely followed Bayside until after Veronica Lueken’s death, at which time I felt that relatives who may well have only been interested in fame and fortune turned things rather weird. The same happened to Maria Valtorta and all of her writings especially ‘Poem of the Man God’, which I feel has been the most inspiring spiritual read I have ever undertaken, though I might add the first fifty or so pages, were to me very dry and boring, and it was a miracle I continued reading.
        It almost seams that the majority of the visionaries I tend to believe are condemned or at least “not endorsed” by the local Bishop. Things in the Church have gotten to the point that I anticipate in the not to distant future when I hear that ‘so and so is sanctioned by the local hierarchy’, then I will know that ‘so and so’ is someone that I should actually be very suspicious/weary of.
