After the Warning illuminates our consciences…

What will happen after the Warning of Garabandal (which is the same as the first secret of Medjugorje)?

Repentant persons will be many, and they will be in great spiritual and emotional distress. Catholics will flock to the confessional in such large numbers that people will have to wait for hours, perhaps days, to receive the Sacrament of Forgiveness.

Some persons will refuse to repent, despite being shown the sins on their consciences at the Warning. Some of these persons will be religious leaders or secular leaders. And when they see so many persons repenting, they will feign repentance in order to maintain their undeserved good reputations.

Some persons will die of shock on the day of the Warning because of their many sins. But the fact that someone dies on that day does not imply that they had more sins than those who did not die, nor does it imply that they will be sent by God to Hell. The Warning will be shocking to everyone.

Some persons will claim that one particular act or another, condemned as sin by the Church, cannot be a sin, because they were not shown this act to be a sin at the Warning. The claim is false because the Warning does not impart all knowledge of morality to each individual, nor does the Warning show the sinner any acts committed in good conscience, even if these acts are objectively sinful.

The Warning only illuminates the conscience. If you committed an act mistakenly thinking that it was moral, then the act is not on your conscience. If you committed an act knowing that it was immoral, and you are still unrepentant, then the act is still on your conscience. If you sinned, repented, and were forgiven by God, then that sin is not on your conscience. The Warning only shows people the sins on their consciences.

The Church will begin to be transfigured on that day, like Christ on the mount. The people will have great fear. And the Pope of that day (Pope Francis or his successor) will suggest to the world that three places of worship be built in Jerusalem, so that the three great monotheistic religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) can worship together in the city of peace. But this will not happen in the short term; instead, there will be war.

[Matthew 17]
{17:1} And after six days, Jesus took Peter and James and his brother John, and he led them onto a lofty mountain separately.
{17:2} And he was transfigured before them. And his face shined brightly like the sun. And his garments were made white like snow.
{17:3} And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, speaking with him.
{17:4} And Peter responded by saying to Jesus: “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you are willing, let us make three tabernacles here, one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
{17:5} And while he was still speaking, behold, a shining cloud overshadowed them. And behold, there was a voice from the cloud, saying: “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased. Listen to him.”
{17:6} And the disciples, hearing this, fell prone on their face, and they were very afraid.
{17:7} And Jesus drew near and touched them. And he said to them, “Rise up and do not be afraid.”
{17:8} And lifting up their eyes, they saw no one, except Jesus alone.

  1. Matt says:

    There are persons that are completely blind to the grave sins they have committed. I suspect that it is not on their conscience and feel no sense of guilt or shame. It almost seems unfair that the illumination of conscience will not affect those that are so deep in grave sins as I described. Many are atheists or agnostics or never go to Church. How can they benefit from the Warning?

    • Ron Conte says:

      I disagree. Sin is, by definition, the knowing choice of moral evil. They know that they have sinned gravely. They know that they have abandoned morality, have rejected their own conscience. As Jesus said:

      {9:40} And certain Pharisees, who were with him, heard this, and they said to him, “Are we also blind?”
      {9:41} Jesus said to them: “If you were blind, you would not have sin. Yet now you say, ‘We see.’ So your sin persists.”

      They are not blind to their own sins. They know they have done what is wrong.

  2. Matt says:

    I think that in addition during the Warning, not only will the Holy Spirit illuminate our conscience, but the also infuse us of knowledge of God’s holiness and call to conversion.

    • Ron Conte says:

      No, absolutely not. There is no infused knowledge at the Warning. None of the prophecies speak of such a thing. Also, it would not be fair of God to give infused knowledge to those who experience the Warning, as compared to those who are born afterward or who die beforehand. The Warning gives the individual nothing other than what could be obtain at any time by anyone: knowledge of the sins on one’s own conscience. Anyone who does a diligent examination of conscience would obtain the same benefit.
