The Truth about the Coming “Great Tribulation” and the “Great Chastisement”
(From Our Lady of San Sebastian de Garabandal)
Written by Ann Ellison
August 14, 2020

I feel I have been forced to write this article because no one wants to listen to the prophecies of the Blessed Mother! Everyone is going by what the mystics in the world today are saying…makes no sense to me at all. Many do not even quote the great Saints who saw everything that is coming and that many of us will be living through, God Willing! Surely, some of these mystics could be correct in they are saying, but so far, I have not heard one who had the sequence correct. But please, I do beg pardon from all if I am wrong because I do not read, nor do I listen to any of the mystics in the world today. But what little I have read they do not have the sequence correct. Why should I read or listen to them when I have all I need to know about the future from the Mother of Jesus, the Daughter of the Father, the Spouse of the Holy Spirit? The One who knows everything, most importantly the plans of God for the world!
One thing that I notice that is causing confusion for me is the description which most people are using. Our Lady of Garabandal was very particular to make a difference in what She was calling the time She was describing.

There were two nights of the screams, they called them, in Garabandal. The first night of the screams, the girls screamed for 50 minutes. They did not scream little girl screams, but horrible, guttural screams. This happened on June 19, 1962. They asked Our Lady what they were seeing, and She told them that they were seeing the “Great Tribulation” of Communism taking over most of the free world, led by Russia! So, it seems several nations will be joining Russia in this endeavor, like China, Syria, Iran, some countries in South America and possibly North Korea. But this is MOST important! She told them that many millions would die during the great Tribulation, and that NOTHING could stop it but the WARNING!!
St. Padre Pio was quoted as saying that the Great Miracle of Garabandal would be paid for by the blood of the Europeans, and I mean oceans of blood! So, it is not just a philosophy that they were talking about….but a real war! All this has to TAKE PLACE before the WARNING!

The very next night, June 20, 1962, the children screamed for 3 hours…the same guttural screams as the night before! The horror they saw that night was incredible. Our Lady told them that they were seeing the “Great Chastisement,” which is the rain of fire from Heaven that would be sent directly by God! This time will come several years after the Great Miracle of Garabandal!

I looked up the word, Tribulation, and it said: “A cause of great trouble or suffering!” I looked up the word chastisement as well and it said this: It is the process of discipling rebellion until it ends, and obedience is restored.”

It seems logical to say that the reason Our Lady made this distinction is that a Great Tribulation can be brought on by man, but allowed by God, ie: war, famine, etc. But the Great Chastisement is directly from God, such as the rain of fire, the flood, etc. I understand they are both a discipline from God, but the direct cause is what makes the difference. One is a direct cause of man and the other is a direct cause of God.

It appears that we could very well be entering, or on the cusp of the Great Tribulation brought on by man, allowed by God, and in which millions of souls will die, even the good!

ONLY the Warning will be able to stop this Tribulation and the Warning will happen only in an even numbered year! This tribulation is what Jesus spoke about in Matthew, chapter 24! As they say, “Matthew 24 is at your door!” Jesus said that if He did not cut the duration of the great Tribulation short, even the elect would die! So, it certainly is not going to be a cake walk as many seem to believe!
Three weeks to three months after the Warning, the Great Miracle of Garabandal will happen! Our Lord told Conchita that the Warning is preparation for the soul, but that the Great Miracle is for the conversion of the entire world! Everyone will be converted, except for the very deeply evil souls, but they will go underground, just like the Christians will soon have to do! But this brings on a time of peace in the world, one not experienced before because the whole world will be Christian!

It isn’t just Our Lady of Garabandal explaining all this, She explained all this in Fatima, too! And I quote:
“Sacrifice yourselves for sinners, and say many times, especially whenever you make some sacrifice: O Jesus, it is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”

As Our Lady spoke these last words, she opened her hands once more, as she had done during the two previous months. The rays of light seemed to penetrate the earth, and we saw as it were a sea of fire. Plunged in this fire were demons and souls in human form. … Terrified and as if to plead for succor, we looked up at Our Lady, who said to us, so kindly and so sadly:

“You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end; but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the pontificate of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that He is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father.

To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world. In Portugal, the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved; etc… Do not tell this to anybody. Francisco, yes you may tell him.
After this period of peace, souls will eventually turn their backs on God again, and then will come the Great Chastisement….the rain of fire that the girls of Garabandal saw on the second night of the screams and which lasted 3 hours. They saw souls being consumed by fire from the inside out. They saw many running for the lakes and waters, but the water was hotter than the air! It was a horrific scene.

There is so much more to explain about all that went on in Garabandal and which Our Lady revealed. We have a booklet called, “Truths Concerning the Event and Prophecies of Garabandal,” if you want to know so much more about Garabandal and you decide to order it through Kathy, you can just ask for the “Garabandal booklet.”. She’ll know what you are talking about, we only have one booklet about Garabandal! You can reach her by phone: +1-423-566-5178, or by email: [email protected].

We love you all so very much and we keep you in our daily prayers. May God give you the light to see the truth of the times we are living in and in which we have the privilege to give God the greatest glory to aid in bringing His Kingdom to all souls!

Public Consecration to the Divine Will


Dear Divine Will Family,

I was asked to send everyone this prayer for the Public Consecration to the Divine Will on August 15th. You can use it or you can choose to use the original Consecration to the Divine Will. I believe God will be pleased with either.
Please which ever prayer you choose, please be sure and UNITE YOUR CONSECRATION TO ALL IN THE WORLD WHO ARE MAKING THIS PUBLIC CONSECRATION TO THE DIVINE WILL! We want to flood Heaven and Our Heavenly Father and Family with our Consecrations, through the Hands of Our Blessed Mother!! We must also give our little “fiats” to Our Mother as well as the Consecration united to all!! God bless all of you who are participating in this enormous event for the Glory of our Heavenly Father and for His Kingdom to come and reign in all souls, most especially ours and our families! Or you can choose both….I know God would be delighted! But He will be delighted either way!
We love each of you so much and keep each of you in our daily prayers. Fiat always and may God reign fully in your most precious souls!


August 15, 2020

Oh Omnipotent and Eternal God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we the littlest of Your beloved children
come before Your Supreme Majesty on this Feast of the Divine Will in the Year 2020.

We come, Father, to offer you – with one heart and soul – our public and permanent FIAT
in the hands and through the Immaculate Heart of our dearest Mother and Model of living in the Divine Will…

Through Her and with Her, we, too, DECLARE before Heaven, Earth and Hell:


Oh, Holy God, Creator, Lord and King of the Universe, we come today – enclosed in the arms of our dearest Mother –
TO OPEN THE DOOR for Jesus’ return in Glory!

Yes! We ARE the least important of your littlest children, but we WANT to change History!

The time has come for the Spirit and the Bride to proclaim, in unison:


The Holy Spirit and His most holy Bride – our dearest Mother –
declare that the time has come for the NEW ERA of Divine Holiness to begin.
We, though painfully aware of: our unworthiness, our poverty, and our absolute nothingness –
are ALSO aware that we represent the Bride on Earth.

We represent THAT part of the Church that is aware of the need to respond to the call of our Returning Saviour,
Lord and King, as He says to us in the Song of Songs 5:2:

“I hear my beloved knocking… (He calls out…)
Open up to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my perfect one…
My beloved thrust his hand through the hole in the door; I trembled to the core of my being”.

Oh my Lord Jesus, representing Your Bride on earth, we declare in union with our Blessed Mother – Your Bride in Heaven:
† Yes! Jesus, come! We call you with all of our hearts!
† Come among us again! Reign among us as You do in Heaven!
† We want the Triumph of the Two Hearts of Jesus and Mary!
† Divine Shepherd, return to your scattered sheep!
† Collect the little lambs who have strayed in the mountains –
† Heal the wounded ones, and Yes! Raise those spiritually dead!
† Show the world again WHO YOU ARE Holiest One!
† Jesus, Holiest One, you also said in Revelation 3:20:

“Look, I am standing at the door, knocking.
If one of you HEARS ME calling AND OPENS THE DOOR
I will come in and share his meal, side by side with him”.

Lord, we open our hearts to you! Come and reign through us!
† We lay down our human wills at Your Divine Feet. Come, live and work in us and through us.
† We put our families at Your Feet: Shepherd them to Eternal Life.
† We lay down our Nation at Your Feet: Reign as King among us!
† We lay down the whole Earth and all humanity at Your Feet: King of Heaven and Earth – PANTOCRATOR – RULE OVER US!
† We ARE yours by the fact of Your Fiats of Creation and Redemption. Now let the Fiat of Sanctification take its rule.
† So, come oh Supreme Volition to reign upon the Earth. Invest all generations. Win and conquer all, and do not delay any longer. AMEN.

I, ________________________________________,
make today my
Consecration to the Divine Will of God

Oh, adorable and Divine Will, behold me here before the immensity of your Light, that your eternal goodness may open to me the doors and make me enter in It to form my life all in You, Divine Will. Therefore, oh, Divine Will, prostrate before your Light, I, the least of all creatures, put myself into the little group of the sons and daughters of your Supreme FIAT. Prostrate in my nothingness, I invoke your Light and beg that It clothe me and eclipse all that does not pertain to You, Divine Will. It will be Life, the center of my intelligence, the enrapturer of my heart, and of my whole being. I do not want the human will to have life in this heart any longer. I will cast it away from me and thus form the new Eden of Peace, of happiness and of love. With It I shall be always happy. I shall have a singular strength and holiness that sanctifies all things and conducts them to God.

Here prostrate, I invoke the help of the Most Holy Trinity, that They permit me to live in the cloister of the Divine Will and thus return in me the first order of creation, just as the creature was created.

Heavenly Mother, Sovereign and Queen of the Divine Fiat, take my hand and introduce me into the Light of the Divine Will. You will be my guide, my most tender Mother, and will teach me to live in and to maintain myself in the order and the bounds of the Divine Will. Heavenly Mother, I consecrate my whole being to your Immaculate Heart. You will teach me the doctrine of the Divine Will and I will listen most attentively to your lessons. You will cover me with your Mantle so that the infernal serpent dare not penetrate into this sacred Eden to entice me and make me fall into the maze of the human will.

Heart of my greatest Good, Jesus, You will give me your flames that they may burn me, consume me, and feed me to form in me the Life of the Divine Will.

St. Joseph, you will be my protector, the guardian of my heart, and will keep the keys of my will in your hands. You will keep my heart jealously and shall never give it to me again, that I may be sure of never leaving the Will of God.

My Guardian Angel, guard me; defend me; help me in everything so that my Eden may flourish and be the instrument that draws all men into the Kingdom of the Divine Will.

Child of the Divine Will

Divine Will Consecration

Dear Divine Will Family,

It was requested of me to send this important information out to everyone about the Public Consecration to the Divine Will happening on the 15th of August this year! It is a very important event and hopefully those who cannot join Frances Hogan in her teachings, etc., will on that most wonderful Divine Will Feast day of Our Lady unite their Consecration with all those who, in good will, make their Consecration to the Divine Will. The whole family needs to be united together in one voice, putting our Consecration and our fiat in the hands of Our Mother that day to take to the Throne of God to help satisfy some of the horrendous sins being committed in these most unsettling times.
We love you all so much and keep everyone in our daily prayers! May God have mercy on us all! Fiat always!

Dear Divine Will Family,
It is with sadness that it is announced that Fr. Bernardino Bucci passed away yesterday at 10:00 am. Please keep him in your prayers.
I am pasting a link to the Luisa Piccarreta, Pia Association’s newsletter which will give you the details of Fr. Bucci’s life and the many ways he was involved with Luisa and her life.
I had the great blessing of living in Corato for a time back in 1994 – 1995 period. First I lived with Adrianna Pallotti in San Giovanni Rotundo, where St. Padre Pio lived and died. It was an incredible time in my life living there.

Adrianna Pallotti

But, then Fr. John Brown, at the time my spiritual director, and Sr. Assunta decided they wanted me in Corato, so I spent most of my time in Italy there helping Sr. Assunta. So many memories and stories I could tell. Fr. Bucci and Sr. Assunta were very good friends and he would come and get us and take us to his country villa on Sundays. His brother would show us and we would cook and have a grand old time. Fr. Bucci would tell me all the stories about Luisa and his aunt Rosario Bucci and what life was like living at the time Luisa was alive. He was always a jolly and happy soul. I know he will be very missed by everyone who knew him.

Fr. Bucci

Sr. Assunta and I would go into the field behind his villa and pick faba beans, which were growing wild, and I would have to peel them when we got home. Can’t say I really enjoy that task, but everything was absolutely wonderful when I lived over there. We were so very busy and I got to meet so many of Luisa’s nieces and nephews. I met some of the nuns at the Convent of Fr. de Francia’s. Sr. Assunta and I would study Luisa’s writing every night and although I could not understand a lot of the Italian, I was learning. I was excited to learn Italian to be able to communicate with everyone. We had our cenacles every Thursday evening and all the association members, very dear friends who I still love and visit when I am there, would come.

Sr. Assunta and myself with her Baby Jesus last year

When Fr. John told me at the Costa Rica Conference that Tom Fahy needed me more than Sr. Assunta and that I needed to stay in America, I gave my fiat, but I cried for three years, missing Sr. Assunta and Adrianna. I fell madly in love with both of those very holy and excellent souls. Once the House of Sanctification open in Garabandal, Spain in 2000, and Tom put me there to care for it and to teach, I went back every year, sometimes several times a year, to visit both ladies. Tom gave me permission to spend summers over there with Sr. Assunta to help out.. I saw Adrianna every year up until her death. I have visited Sr. Assunta every year up until this year. How it breaks my heart that I cannot go and see her again this year, but it is another fiat that I can offer to God for His glory and for His Kingdom to come!

My friend, Felicia Murray and I went to visit the tomb of Fr. John Brown, who is buried in Corato. This was last year.

Well, I have made this all about me instead of Fr. Bucci. I am sorry. I wanted to tell you about Fr. Bucci, not about me, but the memories flooded back and I couldn’t help myself.
Please do keep him in your prayers, and all who are over in Corato, living and passed on, especially Sr. Assunta who is in her 90s now. They work very hard to spread the Kingdom and to finalize the Cause of Luisa. The duties are arduous with the many visitors. God bless them all!
And God bless all of you and your families. We send everyone much love and many prayers from here!

A Message from Bill Fanelli

A Message from Bill Fanelli
(A man of great integrity who has known and studied Luisa and her writings since 1994)

Dear Divine Will Family,
I am sending this very important message that Bill Fanelli sent out and many of you may have received, but for those who have not, it is important enough, in my humble opinion, to send it out for you. It contains a similar message that I sent out about focusing only on Divine Will instead of the happenings in the world, even in our own country. But, Bill is brilliant in the way he explains it and the example from the writing that he gives. I love his prayers as well.
Bill is a very unassuming man who hid his writing skills from us here at the Center. I knew he was extremely smart and knowledgeable about Luisa, but I didn’t know he could explain it the way he does and write as brilliantly as he did. I know you will enjoy this article from Bill as much as I did. Thank you, Bill, for answering the Holy Spirit’s call to write this article to call our attention to what God wants of us during this very tumultuous time! God bless you, dear friend! Read and get serious about the message that Bill is sending out!
We love all of you and keep you all in our prayers! Eternal blessings upon each of you and your families!
Ann Ellison
PS: A lady wrote to me asking me about what volumes I use to make references. I have lost that email and I would very much like to answer her. Can you please write me again, if you open this email. Thank you!

Update – June 24, 2019


Dear Readers of Messages of Gold,

Barbara Martin: Barbara was kept in the hospital until Wednesday, June 19, following her major back operation on June 13. She is in constant pain from what I have been told, and her therapy sessions have been especially difficult and have had to be cut short. It would be good and an act of charity to continue your prayers for Barbara.
The marvelous book, “Be Faithful and Attentive” arrived last Thursday, June 20. Kathy has shipped a lot of the pre-ordered books, already. This Third Edition is only one inch thick, has less weight than the Second Printing, even though it has more pages including a topical index.
We are very pleased with the quality of this edition, even though our cost was significantly more. We are only raising the suggesed donation a small amount though at $29.95.
I had wanted to include Divine Will insights with this mailing, but that will have to wait, due to many practical, domestic things that have piled up and need attention.

Wishing your eternal delights in the Happiness of Heaven,
Thomas Fahy
