THE WARNING: INTERVIEWS WITH THE SEERS,
The sky Turning Red
The M+G+R Foundation THE WARNING: INTERVIEWS WITH THE SEERS Compiled
by the staff of "Garabandal" and originally published in a 1990 Special
Edition by The Workers of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, P.O. Box 606, Lindenhurst,
NY 11757-0606, U.S.A. Introduction Since the apparitions of Garabandal
ended in 1965, visionaries Conchita, Mari Loli and Jacinta have, from
time to time, granted interviews in which they have revealed what
they are able to say about the coming worldwide Warning and great
Miracle. In each of these interviews, although the same questions
are frequently asked about the two events, it often happens that new
or supportive information, or a different perspective comes to light.
With this in mind, and in an attempt to get the most complete picture
on the basis of what is known about the Warning and Miracle, we have
consolidated all the interviews to which we have access, avoiding,
of course, unnecessary repetition. What follows is the result of the
research conducted by the Garabandal staff with the segments from
the various interviews given in chronological order.
THE WARNING Conchita September 14, 1965 (A)All references may be
found at the end of this document.
Q. Will the Warning be a visible thing or an interior thing or both?
A. The Warning is a thing that comes directly from God and will
be visible throughout the entire world, in whatever place anyone might
Q. Will the Warning reveal personal sins to every person in the
world and to persons of all faith, including atheists?
A. Yes, the Warning will be like a revelation of our sins-es como
si revelase nuestros pecados, and it will be seen and experienced
equally by believers and non-believers and people of any religion
Q. Is it true that the Warning will cause many people to remember
A. The Warning is like a purification for the Miracle. And it is
a sort of a catastrophe. It will make us think of the dead, that is,
we would prefer to be dead than to experience the Warning.
Q. Will the Warning be recognized and accepted by the world as a
direct sign from God?. A. Certainly-claro, and for this reason I believe
it is impossible that the world could be so hardened as not to change.
October, 1968 (B) Q. We have heard that some say the Warning may
be a natural phenomenon but will be used by God to speak to mankind.
Is this true?
A. The Warning is something supernatural and will not be explained
by science. It will be seen and felt.
Q. Conchita, can you explain the statement that during the Warning
we will know ourselves and the sins we have committed?
A. The Warning will be a correction of the conscience of the world.
Q. What about the many people who do not know Christ; how will they
understand the Warning?.
A. For those who do not know Christ (non-christian) they will believe
it is a Warning from God.
1973(C) Q. What will occur on the day of the Warning?
A. The most important thing about that day is that everyone in the
whole world will see a sign, a grace, or a punishment within themselves
- in other words, a Warning. They will find themselves all alone in
the world no matter where they are at the time, alone with their conscience
right before God. They will then see all their sins and what their
sins have caused.
Q. Will we all feel it at the same time?
A. Yes, at the same time.
Q. How long will it last, a half hour, an hour?
A. I really don't know. I think that five minutes would be an adequate
Q. How will we feel it?
A. We will all feel it differently because it will depend on our
conscience. The Warning will be very personal, therefore, we will
all react differently to it. The most important thing will be to recognize
our own sins and the bad consequences of them. You will have a different
view of the Warning than me because your sins are different from mine.
Q. Will something happen to me because of my sins? I mean will physical
harm come upon me as a result of them?
A. No, unless it's something that results from the sick, for example,
a heart attack.
Q. So then it will bring no physical harm but will consist of facing
God alone with my sins. How about the good things; will I see them
A. No. This will be only a Warning to see what you have done with
your sins. It will be like a purification before the Miracle to see
if with the Warning and Miracle we (meaning the whole world) will
Q. So this Warning can occur any day now?
A. Yes, but I don't know the date when it will occur.
February, 1977 (D) Q. When did you learn about the Warning and from
A. The only thing that I remember well is that it was the Virgin
who told me of it.
Q. Would you repeat for us what you know about the Warning?
A. What I remember now is that the Virgin told me that before the
Miracle God will be sending us a Warning so as to purify us or prepare
us to see the Miracle and in this way we may draw enough grace to
change our lives toward God. She told me what the Warning will consist
of but not the date. I am not able to say what it consists of but
I am able to say what it will be like, more or less. It is a phenomenon
which will be seen and felt in all the world and everywhere; I have
always given as an example that of two stars that collide. This phenomenon
will not cause physical damage, but it will horrify us because at
that very moment we will see our souls and the harm we have done.
It will be as though we were in agony but we will not die by its effects
but perhaps we will die of fright or shock to see ourselves. May the
Virgin forgive me if I do not explain it the way it is, but I am trying
to tell you ...after knowing what the Warning will be like that day.
Q. Did you 'see' or 'hear' about the Warning?
A. The Virgin told me of its coming.
Q. If the Warning only last a short time, will the world remember
it as coming from God or will it only appear to have been a dream
or an illusion?
A. I have never said that the Warning will be a short moment. What
I have said is that even if it were a moment it will be very impressive
and terrible. No one will have doubts of it being from God, and of
its not being human. I, who know what it is am very much afraid of
Q. Many years ago you told us the event of the Warning begins with
the letter"A." Since Our Lady never told you not to reveal it, can
you now mention it?
A. She did not forbid it, but I don't know why I haven't said it
and I don't feel as though I should say it now.
Q. You once said to Fr. Marcelino Andreu, "When you see the Warning
you will know we have opened up the end of time." Can you explain
what you meant by this?
A. The Virgin told us that the Warning and Miracle will be the last
warnings for public spectaculars that God will give us. This is why
I believe that after them we will be near the end of time.
Q. Do you have any words of advice for the people in order that they
might prepare for this event?
A.We must all ways be prepared with our souls in peace and not tie
ourselves down so much to this world. Instead, we must think very
often that we are here to go to heaven and to be saints. August,
1980(E) Q. It (the Warning) is not going to hurt you?
A. No. To me, it's like two stars.. that crash and make a lot of
noise and a lot of light but they don't fall... It's something that's
not going to hurt us but we're going to see it. In that moment, we're
going to see our conscience. You're going to see everything wrong
that you're doing.
Q. You're going to see everything wrong that you're doing?
A. Yes. And you're going to see the good that you're not doing.
Mari Loli July 27, 1975 (F) Q. You have said that you know the year
of the Warning. Can you tell us if it will occur in the next few years
or is it still in the distant future?
A. No. I can't say anything.
Q. Did the Blessed Mother tell you not to speak about the Warning?
A. No, she didn't , but, because the Warning and the Miracle are
within the same year, I fee it inside not to say anything.
Q. How do you know the Warning and the Miracle are within the same
A. During an apparition-I don't remember just when- the Blessed Virgin
Q. Reportedly, you have said that when the Warning occurs everything
will stand still, even planes in the sky. Is this true?
A. Yes, but just for a few moments.
Q. You mean that everything will stop at a given moment and at that
moment the Warning will occur?
Q. When was this information revealed to you?
A. During an apparition the Blessed Virgin told me all this.
Q. Was all the information given you during one apparition, or did
Our Lady tell you this over several apparitions?
A. She told me all of this during one apparition. I don't remember
now if she spoke about the Warning during any other apparition.
Q. Do you know how long the Warning will last?
A. Jest a few minutes.
Q. Are you afraid of the Warning?
A. Yes. Like everyone else, I have faults, and the warning will show
me my faults and this makes me afraid.
Q. Can you tell us anything else about the Warning?
A. All I can say is that it is very close and that it is very important
that we prepare ourselves because it will be a terrible thing. It
will make us feel all the wrong we have done. February, 1977 (D) Q.
Have you ever discussed with Conchita the dates of the Warning of
which you know the year, and the Miracle which she knows?
A. I have never talked to Conchita about these dates.
Q. Have you any words of advice for the people in order that they
might prepare for this event?
A. To do much penance, make sacrifices, visit the Blessed Sacrament
every day that we are able to, and to pray the holy rosary daily.
September 29, 1978 (G) Q. Since you are the one who knows the most
about the Warning will you tell us if this event is to take place
before the Miracle promised through Conchita Gonzalez?
A. ..Everyone will experience it wherever they may be, regardless
of their condition or their knowledge of God...It will be an interior
personal experience. it will look as if the world has come to a standstill,...however,
no one will be aware of that as they will be totally absorbed in their
Q. About the nature of the Warning, how do you sense it:
A. It is going to be something like and interior feeling of sorrow
and pain for having offended God. God will help us to see clearly
the harm we are causing Him and all the evil things we do. He will
help us to sense this interior pain because often when we do something
wrong we just ask the Lord's forgiveness with our lips, but now (through
the Warning) He will help us sense physically that deep sorrow.
October 19, 1982 (H) Q. Do you remember what the Blessed Mother said
about the communist tribulation that is to precede the Warning?
A. It would look like the communists have taken over the whole world
and it would be very hard to practice the religion, for priests to
say Mass or for the people to open the doors of the churches.
Q. Is that what you meant when you said that it would seem as though
the Church had disappeared?
Q. It would be because of the persecution and not because the people
would stop practicing their religion?
A. Yes, but I guess a lot of people will stop. Whoever practices
it will have to go into hiding.
Q. Will this only be in Europe or do you think it will be here in
the United States as well? A. I don't know because for me at that
time, Europe was the whole world. I just assumed it was that way.
The Blessed Mother didn't specify in what place. To me it looked like
it was everywhere.
Q. Approximately 67% of the earth's land is now dominated by communism.
Do you think that's sufficient to fulfill Our Lady's prophecy?
A. I really don't know. It sounded to me like it would be more that.
Q. In other words you think it will be worse that it is now?
A. That's what I thought from what she said but I really don't know
exactly. To me it looked more like it was every place out there, the
places I saw in my mind. In a lot of countries in Europe you can still
practice your religion.
Q. So, the situation in the world is not bad enough for the Warning
A. The Warning is not going to happen yet so it's probably going
to get worse.
Q. You said that it would be very difficult for priests to say Mass.
Was this something that the Blessed Mother told you or was it something
that you thought yourself because of the communist tribulation?
A. From what I remember, it was something she said.
Q. And the Virgin said that it would seem as though the Church had
Q. Did the Blessed Mother ever say anything about the Holy Father
having to leave Rome at the time of the Warning?
A. No, But what it looked like to me-maybe at this time I was confusing
in my mind what I was seeing and what the Blessed Mother was saying
to me because it's been so many years- but what it looked like to
me was that the Pope couldn't be in Rome either, you know what I mean,
out in the open. He was being persecuted, too, and had to hide just
like everybody else.
Q. You said that when the Warning comes, the planes would stop in
the air and that all engines would stop. is this what the Blessed
Mother told you?
A. She said that everything, everywhere, for a moment would stop
and the people would just think and look inside themselves.
Q. Will there be any noise with the Warning like a wind blowing?
A. The way I saw it at the time, it was more like a big silence,
like a sense of emptiness. Everything was very silent. That's the
way I saw it.
Q. Seven years ago you said that the Warning was soon. Many people
thought it would have happened by now. What would you say today?
A. It is soon. Everything looks soon to me because time goes by so
Q. You're the only one who knows the year of the Warning. did you
ever tell it to anyone else, like a priest for example?
Q. Will people be fighting with one another when the warning comes?
A. (no answer)
Jancinta August 17, 1975 (I) Q. Did Our Lady ever speak to you about
A. Yes, she spoke to me about it but she never told me the year...
February, 1977(D) Q. Can you tell us what the Warning will be like?
A. The Warning is something that is first seen in the air everywhere
in the world and immediately is transmitted into the interior of our
souls. It will last for a very little time, but it will seem a very
long time because of its effect within us. It will be for the good
of our souls, in order to see in ourselves our conscience, the good
(*) and the bad that we've done. Then we'll feel a great love toward
our heavenly parents and ask forgiveness for all our offenses. Conchita
says that we will only see the bad.
Q. Will the Warning be felt by all people regardless of their beliefs?
A. The Warning is for everybody because God wants our salvation.
The Warning is in order for us to draw closer to Him and to increase
our faith. Therefore, one should prepare for that day, but not awaiting
it with fear because God doesn't send things for the sake of fear
but rather with justice and love and He does it for the good of all
His children that they might enjoy eternal happiness and not be lost.
August, 1979(J) Q. Do you recall anything about a great tribulation,
A. Yes , it was an invasion, well, something that seemed to me like
an invasion; something that was a great evil in which communism played
a great part, but I no longer remember which countries or what region
was stricken. The Blessed Virgin insisted in telling us to pray (that
it be averted). These difficult events will take place before the
Warning because the Warning itself will take place when the situation
will be at its worst. April 16, 1983 (K) Q. In a 1979 interview (above),
you said in describing the communist tribulation that "it was like
an invasion. " Did you see scenes of this invasion?
A. The Virgin said that the Warning would come when conditions were
at their worst. It wouldn't be just the persecution either because
many people will no longer be practicing their religion.
Q. When the Warning comes it will be seen and felt by everyone on
earth. Does this include little children who have not yet reached
the age of reason?
A. Yes. that's why we felt sorry for them because it was such a terrifying
Q. Can you tell us anything about what the world will be like when
the Warning comes?
