The Mystery of Garabandal: Fantasy or Fraud? Ghost or God? by LR Walker

Fifty years ago, four young girls in a small Spanish village began falling into rigid trances for hours, marching backward up hills, and levitating, seemingly, inches above the ground. Eyes fixed on a mysterious point in the air, they were mesmerized by something which was invisible to everyone else.
Specifically, the girls claimed to be communing with the Virgin Mary. What they said she told them sent shock waves throughout the Catholic world, and beyond—shock waves that are still reverberating today. The messages the four girls claimed to receive revealed a picture of a church in crisis and a world that faced an earth-shattering future that would unfold in their lifetime.
The girls’ pronouncements about coming trouble in the church and world were met with fierce skepticism from the first. Some charged the girls with being possessed by demons (based on the girls’ strange physical poses and apparent levitation), and others claimed the girls were putting on an act (revealing their true colors when they chose ordinary married lives instead of the convent). There was also a third body of critics: those who believed that a group of girls on the cusp of adolescence in a remote and insular society conjured up a psychodrama which, fueled by the spotlight and mounting frenzy, gained a frightening life of its own.
Of course there is another possibility–that the apparitions in Garabandal, Spain actually did occur, and that the mother of Jesus appeared with an apocalyptic warning for both the church and the modern world.
The prophecies of Garabandal foretell a World-Wide Warning and a Global Miracle, whose purpose is to convince a world reeling from one catastrophe to the next that God exists. But the Warning and Miracle, dramatic as they sound, are not even the most unsettling of the messages. One night, the young girls dissolved into screams. During this so-called “Night of the Screams,” the girls say they were shown a tragic chastisement that would befall the entire world if the Warning and Miracle failed to trigger global change.
As disquieting as those messages were, the Virgin Mary’s most shocking message at Garabandal was for the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church, which was meeting at that time for Vatican II. Why were the messages of Garabandal so effectively suppressed? Did it have to do with the fact that the Virgin Mary presciently warned of coming scandal and turmoil in the Roman Catholic Church itself?
Did a portal open between worlds on a Spanish mountaintop in that summer of 1961? And if so, who opened the door–an angel of God or an angel of darkness? Was it the young girls’ flight of fancy one summer night that spun wildly out of control? Or was it a visitation from the Mother of Jesus filled with urgent concern for a church and a world that she deeply loves?
Now that the “girls” at the center of this drama are 60-year-old women, should their claims be discredited or re-examined? Are the apparitions bogus or fast-approaching their fulfillment? If the events are false, Garabandal is a fascinating and perhaps tragic human interest story with several explanations. If the events and warnings are true–then what do we do?
By the end of this book, readers can judge whether the appearances of the Virgin Mary to four young seers on a mountaintop in Spain were historical fact, a devilish fraud, or the creative confusion of four girls who would spend the rest of their lives trying to escape a human tragicomedy that they themselves had produced.

Push the Rock: Second Chances on the Road to Kilimanjaro by R.W. Long

Living the American Dream at the pinnacle of his life, R.W. Long had it all: a loving family, a promising career, and a multitude of blessings. All of this was cut short with the diagnosis of an incurable disease. In the prime of life, he lost nearly everything he had worked for and felt he was given a life sentence and incarcerated in his own body—a body that no longer obeyed his commands and that would fail him in new ways daily.

For eight years, the struggle wore him down, nearly to the point of no return. Then came the phone call in the dead of night from a war-torn country half a world away.

“Dad, I don’t think I’m going to make it out of here alive.”

These words set in motion the most important mission of Long’s life: Learning to walk again in order to meet his son. What was once considered an impossibility was transformed into a goal and a mission.

Set against the backdrop of the quest for Kilimanjaro’s summit, Push the Rock is the true story of faith, second chances, and the power of family to overcome life’s greatest challenges.
