Harry Daley first heard about Garabandal about 1970. He met Conchita in 1972 and she agreed to do a documentary about the events. Their documentary film debuted on television in May 1973 and then shown in theatres around the world. This prompted the BBC to do a more documentary about the Garabandal events. Q&A with Conchita here:

Mr. Daley, in this book, focused primarily on the after effects of the events which occurred at Garabandal, which makes it an interesting read.  Conchita moved to the U.S., married, had four children and does her best to live an ordinary life. However, she is the main visionary from Garabandal, and for that reason her life can never be completely normal. How many Catholics can say that Mother Teresa is the godmother of one of their children? Or that bishops and theologians from around the world visit their home? How many Catholics can claim to have had a private audience with a Pope, and St. Padre Pio? Conchita is who she is: a woman who has seen visions of heaven, and actually knows the exact date when the greatest miracle in the world will soon happen.

Very well written, easy to read and understand. The reader is taken on a journey to view the events of Garabandal through the unique perspective of the author. Ed Kelly samples the food and wine and moves on to Pamplona. Back home he learns that the Vatican takes seriously the predictions of a future horrifying warning for everyone in the world, which will be followed in the village of Garabandal by the greatest miracle in history at which the sick will be cured. Conchita confirms to a BBC interviewer, “that if the conditional punishment follows, it would be better that her children had never been born.” The author is in Garabandal sixteen times to live more than four years total in the area. He listens to eyewitness relive what they had seen and heard and felt during the apparitions and gets to know the visionaries. Kelly is widely recognized as an expert on Garabandal, especially in terms of the local Church’s investigation and evaluation of the apparitions.

In this third book from Father Pelletier, he bases it principally on Conchita’s Diary, which is reproduced in its entirety. He brings in other documents which form something of a continuation of her diary which stops in 1971. The primary concern of this author is complete accuracy derived from firsthand sources.

This is the BEST book to get to know the beautiful people who were living in Garabandal in the 1960s and 1970s. Chapter 2 gives a helpful chronological of the events of Garabandal, and then leads into the testimonials of the villagers. Each villager has a chapter in which they respond to a set of questions. The official commission which was established by the local bishop only interviewed a few of the villagers, so this book is a very important piece of the historical record. Most of the people interviewed for the book saw ecstasies many, many times (hundreds in some cases), and were surrounded by this grace on a daily basis. The testimonials of Jose “Pepe” Diez and Simon Gonzalez (Jacinta’s father) are especially thorough and very informative.

Call of the Ages

Generic, not primarily Garabandal. Dr. Petrisko looks at prophecies of Marian apparitions, saints, mystics, stigmatists, and visionaries throughout the ages. In a very clear, documented style, he shows how their predictions all point to astonishing changes for the world in the future, beginning with a “warning,” miracles, a coming chastisement, and an era of peace. This book is excellent in helping to understand how all the modern Marian apparitions are tied together and are really all part of one larger message: to repent and turn to God in these times of mercy before the time of God’s justice and chastisement comes upon us which will ultimately lead to a purifying of the earth and an era of peace.

From as far back as the 16th century, when St. Edmund Campion of England spoke of a great day that would reveal all men’s consciences, a coming day of enlightenment has been foretold. It is purported to be a day in which God will supernaturally illuminate the conscience of every man, woman, and child on earth. Each person, then, would momentarily see the state of their soul through Gods eyes and realize the truth of His existence. In 2000, this book was the only comprehensive and authoritative guide to this event, using Scripture and testimony from the saints and visionaries to explain this great miracle of Gods Mercy.

A definitive recounting of the extraordinary events which occurred in that remote village located in northern Spain. First published in 1965 while the apparitions were still occurring, Sanchez Ventura’s vividly detailed account of his own direct observations and those of the other first-hand witnesses he interviewed, is the most authoritative on this subject. Francisco Sanchez-Ventura y Pascual was a highly respected Spanish attorney, economics Professor, award-winning novelist, personal counselor to Spanish royalty, and founder of various businesses. He founded the magazine Maria Mensajera (Mary Messenger), directed numerous courses specializing in Mariology and published more than 50 books — most of them investigative studies into mystical phenomena and Marian apparitions. He died June 13, 2007.

Presents Mary as a prophetic voice in the contemporary Church, fulfilling her role, as did the prophets of the Old Testament, in the “spirit and power” of Elijah. She comes directly to a confused and persecuted Church in our day, offering us a “way out” of the present quagmire. And that “way out,” of course, is reminding us that it is only through Her Son. The author also discusses Mary’s place in Catholic eschatology. Besides sthe apparitions at Garabandal, several recognized Marian visitations from the 17th through the 20th centuries prior to 1960 are also examine. Continues with some unique information. Well annotated.

Many have asked: Did the Virgin Mary really appear in Garabandal? Were the messages that the visionaries gave true? What happened to the official investigations? Has the Church given her definitive judgment with regards to the apparitions? Do the extraordinary happenings have any natural explanation? Is there any future for the apparitions of San Sabastian de Garabandal? These are but a few of the questions that receive light thanks to this incredible work based on the first academic study ever realized on the supposed Marian Apparitions of San Sebastian de Garabandal in the University of Navarre, Spain. Jose Luis Saavedra meticulously unravels the story of Garabandal in its entirety, from the historical facts to the mystical theology behind the events; and from the private messages of the visionaries to some of the most well-known spiritual fruits of conversion and healing known to the public. What is more, he has managed to transform a first doctoral thesis into an enjoyable and accessible read for all. If you are interested in the story of Garabandal, you need not look farther than this book or at the movies based on this book. You can see the videos free online: Garabandal: God Only Knows, and Garabandal-Unstoppable Waterfall. This book is well annotated.

Description: (Amazon comment)

Regardless of whether the Catholic Church approves or disapproves, the author has compiled a great deal of compelling (and often terrifying) information for readers to contemplate in this book. The author ties all three events – Fatima, Medjugorje and Garabandal together by pointing to the numerous similarities in the messages received. The author maintained a neutral view of Garabandal by presenting information journalistically so readers could make up their own minds. The Mystery of Garabandal is compelling enough to give true believers hope and strengthen their faith. Very well annotated.

This book presents a long series of persons who offer testimony of personal warning experiences to convert from their sinful lifestyle. Some chapters are quite disturbing. Unfortunately, this book also presents the opinions of the Canadian priest, Father Michele Rodrigue, who purports to be a prophet but his prophecies have proved to be unreliable. His commentary should be ignored.

Garabandal: Der Zeigefinger Gottes
(The Finger of God)

By Weber, Albrecht



German only. No e-book

Could someone come forward to translate this book into English???


As a young man Albrecht worked as a television cameraman and became a good sound engineer with his own sound truck. He installed an audio system in the cathedral of Lisbon. He was successful in his business dealings and owned a house and property in Garabandal and an apartment in Fatima. Albrecht’s involvement in Garabandal goes back to 1965 when he first visited the village, and he was present on the day of Conchita’s last apparition on November 13, 1965. On the following day he and others (his mother, Elizabeth, and Eloisa de Guia) had a lengthy conversation with the seer, from which Albrecht learned some things that had not been published until his book Garabandal Der Zeigefinger De Gottes came out in 1992.

He also revealed that Conchita said at that time that a Pope will go to Moscow just before the Tribulation begins. When this information was challenged, Albrecht was contacted and asked for his source. He said his mother was writing those things down as Conchita said them. Albrecht was also mentioned by Our Lady during the November 15 vision of Conchita, when she said he would start (spreading the message) when the other one stopped. And this happened. Franz Speckbocker was the principal promoter of Garabandal in Germany until around 1990. When he ended his Garabandal apostolate Albrecht began shortly after that. He published four books on Garabandal as well as other literature, produced CDs and a small statue of Our Lady as she appeared at Garabandal. He did the narration for the German version of The Message of Garabandal video produced by the New York Center and obtained a copy of the master tape so he could produce the videos in his own country.

Albrecht also donated the money for the entire refurbishing of the altar when the Garabandal village church underwent a complete restoration which was completed in 2012.
