The Warning of Garabandal – commentary of 4/25/2014

A reminder to my readers that my date for the Warning of Garabandal is Good Friday, March 25th, of 2016. That’s less than 2 years from now. I encourage you all to take stock of your lives, from a spiritual point of view, and consider what changes you might need to make to move closer to God.

Every Catholic should go to confession regularly, at least once a month. Every Catholic should do penance on a near-daily basis: prayer, self-denial, works of mercy. Then you will be much better off when the Warning occurs and God shows you your sins.

The Warning is a supernatural event in which God illuminates the conscience of each person. Everyone will know the sins on his or her conscience. But this knowledge is nothing more than what is already on each one’s conscience. And you could obtain the same benefit of knowing your sins any hour of any day by a diligent examination of your conscience in the light of Church teaching.

Beware of false teachers and false prophets, who make false claims about the Warning. One false claim is the idea that the Warning shows you, supposedly, your soul as God sees it. That claim is certainly false. Only at the particular judgment, when each soul stands before God after death, does each individual see their soul and their whole life in the light of God’s pure truth. And the Church teaches that the particular judgment occurs only once and only after death. So the Warning cannot be a particular judgment.

Prepare for the Warning by amending your life. Start by examining your conscience, looking for any mortal sin. Consider your life and your behavior each day from the point of view of Jesus and Mary. If they would not approve, don’t bother trying to make excuses to justify your actions. Repent from your sin and go to confession.
