The blind seer of Garabandal, a Mr Joey Lomangino, has died. May he rest in peace, though some doubts are justified. His death is a real pity for his followers, then on the day of the great miracle on which the followers have been insisting for now many decades, he should have been able to see again.
Therefore, something is not right in fantasyland. Apart from all the rest, I mean. So, the poor Joey had been told by an angel the Blessed Virgin had told he would see, but he dies as blind as Ray Charles.
Let us see the possibilities here:
1. The Blessed Virgin was wrong.
2. The “angel” did not understand correctly. We all know it’s rather noisy in Paradise. These things happen.
3. This is a case of hallucinations, or of satanic confusion.
Garabandal has been censored. Cardinal Ottaviani himself had to intervene to tell the idiots to stop living in a fantasy world, and to obey the bishop already. But do you think the kind of people who are likely to swallow such tales whole are going to be impressed? Nope.
Take the prediction that Padre Pio would see some Garabandal miracle. Heck, if this had been the case, Padre Pio would have been rather public about it, no?
Well, nope. Padre Pio did not say, himself, anything; but not-so-strangely, one of the seers travelled to Italy some weeks after his death, and said that some friar said that padre Pio said… all of this, rather conveniently, when the man was not there anymore to throw a sandal at them (Padre Pio was very good at sandal-throwing. He was not bad at slapping, either…).
Stupidity, you truly rule the world.
Now the blind man has died, and as already stated I am reliably informed he was still as blind as they come. You think some people would now open their eyes. But no. He was blind by necessity; they are every bit as blind, by choice.
As in the case of Medjugorje, there is an amount of arrogance, stupidity and disobedience at play in these things which, once reached, is impervious to logic, reason, and bishops’ statements, and will not be swayed by anything on the planet.
I have no doubt whatsoever the fans of Garabandal are feverishly working, as a I write this, to bend reality to their fantasies. Let us see what they will come up with. It could be great fun.
Garabandal is, like Medjugorje, a tale of arrogance and disobedience.
Beware of the blind leading the blind.
