The Truth about the Coming “Great Tribulation” and the “Great Chastisement”
(From Our Lady of San Sebastian de Garabandal)

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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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!
