April 23, 2009Mari Loli, Seer From Marian Appartion at Garabandal Dies
Information posted on several websites suggests that Mari Loli had been ill for sometime, having been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis and Lupus back in 2002 at a hospital in Boston area hospital.
The Garabandal apparitions occurred between 1961 – 1965 in Garabandal Spain, a small village 55 miles southwest of Santander. There has been no official statement, issued from Rome, regarding the Church’s opinion on the events of Garabandal. The local Spanish Bishops have been predictably skeptical. However, in his “Official Note” of July 8, 1965 Bishop Eugenio Beitia of Santander wrote, “We point out, however, that we have not found anything deserving of ecclesiastical censorship or condemnation either in the doctrine or in the spiritual recommendations that have been publicized as having been addressed to the faithful, for these contain an exhortation to prayer and sacrifice, to Eucharistic devotion, to veneration of Our Lady in traditional praiseworthy ways, and to holy fear of God offended by our sins. They simply repeat the common doctrine of the Church in these matters.”
At this juncture in time the apparitions have neither been condemned nor approved.
The Garabandal Prophecies predicted four supernatural events:
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".More information about the Garabandal Apparition can be found here. There are several video's on Youtube explaining the appartion.
