All the above all share a common denominator !
The Answer is ___ __th
Blessed Imelda Lambertini
  • Imelda was born in 1322 in Bologna, the only
    child of a noble family. Her parents were devout
    Christians and known for their charity and
    generosity to the underprivileged of Bologna. As
    a very young girl, Imelda had a burning desire to
    receive Christ in the Most Holy Eucharist. On her
    fifth birthday, she requested this privilege.
    However, Church custom at the time was that a
    person did not receive their First Holy Communion
    until age 14. Imelda was sorely disappointed but
    accepted the Church's position and her parents'
    decision. As time went by, her desire for the
    Blessed Sacrament grew. She thought that if she
    joined the convent, she would get to receive
    communion sooner. She joined a cloistered
    Dominican community at age nine. (It was not
    unusual at the time for a girl her age to enter
    the convent.) However, she was still denied the
    opportunity to receive Holy Communion. The
    Miracle Year 1333
  • When she was eleven, on the Feast of the
    Ascension, she knew in her heart that it would be
    the day of her First Holy Communion, but did not
    speak of this inspiration to anyone. At Holy
    Mass, she waited for a signal from her superior
    or from the priest-celebrant, but no one
    indicated their approval to her. After Mass,
    Imelda was crushed at not having received
    communion as she thought and remained in the
    chapel weeping long after the other nuns left.
    Her heart so desired to receive the Eucharist
    that she could not take it any more. Miraculously
    , a consecrated Host, which was reserved in the
    tabernacle, left the tabernacle and hovered over
    her head. She was in a state of ecstasy. After a
    long time, her superior noticed she was not going
    about her duties around the monastery and went
    looking for her. She discovered Imelda just where
    she left her, in the chapel but she was in a
    state of rapture as the miraculous Host continued
    to be elevated above her head. The superior ran
    to get the priest, who promptly came. He got a
    paten and held it under the Host. The Host
    dropped onto the paten, and the priest gave
    Imelda her First Holy Communion. Imelda knelt in
    her spot in the chapel to pray in thanksgiving,
    and her Dominican sisters joined her for a time.
    Eventually, they left her alone to contemplate
    this great gift. Later that day, her superior
    again became concerned and looked for her only to
    discover that after several hours, little Imelda
    was still in the chapel. The superior wanted to
    make sure she got some rest and approached with
    the intention of asking her to retire. However,
    Imelda had died, kneeling serenely and in prayer.
    It is said she died for joy and love of the Holy
    Eucharist. Miracles were immediately attributed
    to her intercession, especially the restoration
    of sight to one man from her town who had been
    blind. Imelda was beatified by the Roman
    Catholic Church in 1826. Her Feast day is on May

1792 Pope Pius IX was Born on May 13th
  • I believe that this Popes prophecy is referring
    to May 13th 2010 and beyond.
  • 'The Prophets and our Times' by Rev R. Gerald
    Cullen published by Tan Books -
  • " We expect that the Immaculate Virgin and the
    Mother of God, through her most powerful
    intercession, will bring it about that our holy
    mother, the Catholic Church, after the removal of
    all obstacles and overcoming of all errors, will
    gain in influence from day to day among nations
    and all places, prosper and rule from ocean to
    ocean, from the great stream to the ends of the
    earth that she will enjoy peace and
    liberty........ that all erring souls will return
    to the path of truth and justice after the
    darkness of their minds has been dispelled, and
    that there wil be one fold and one shepherd." "
    Since the whole world is against God and his
    Church, it is evident that he has reserved the
    victory over His enemies over to Himself. This
    will be more obvious when it is considered that
    the root of our present evils is to be found in
    the fact that those with talents and vigor crave
    earthly pleasures, and not only desert God, but
    repudiate Him altogether thus it appears they
    cannot be brought back to God in any other way
    except through an act that cannot be ascribed to
    any secondary agency, and thus all will be forced
    to look to the supernatural, and cry out 'From
    the Lord is this come to pass and it is wonderful
    in our eyes!'.... There will come a Great Wonder,
    which will fill the world with astonishment. This
    wonder will be preceded by triumph of
    revolution. The Church will suffer exceedingly.
    Her servants and chieftain will be mocked,
    scourged and martyred."

  • Beginning on May 13, 1917, the Blessed Virgin
    Mary, the Mother of God, appeared six times on
    consecutive months of the 13th day of every month
    to Jacinta (age 7), Francisco (age 9) and Lucia
    (age 10) in Fatima, Portugal. The Blessed Virgin
    told the children to pray the Rosary every day
    she showed them a vision of Hell and she made
    prophecies about World War II and the expansion
    of Communism (the errors of Russia), among
    other things.
  • The message and miracle of Our Lady of Fatima in
    1917 is one of the greatest events in the history
    of the Catholic Church. Since the miracle at
    Fatima, which occurred on Oct. 13, 1917, was
    predicted to take place in advance, and was
    fulfilled in the presence of almost 100,000
    people. Elsewhere on the continent the great
    World War 1 raged, that would cost Europe an
    entire generation, over 37 million lives. The
    Bolsheviks seized power in Russia during the
    October Revolution phase of the Russian
    Revolution of 1917, and founded the communist
    state of the Soviet Union.
  • "What if nothing wonderful happens on the 13th? 
    Aren't you afraid people will laugh at you then?"
    asked the parish priest, as he looked closely at
    10-year-old Lucia.
  • "Oh no, Father!" replied Lucia.  "I know
    something wonderful is going to happen on the
    13th.  The Lady told us so."  Nine-year-old
    Francisco and 7-year-old Jacinta were equally

    became Pope Pius XII.

    citizenship and supporting the underground. Noted
    for his devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
    defining the dogma of the Assumption of the
    Blessed Virgin Mary (November 12, 1950), and the
    promotion of the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of
    Mount Carmel. A theological conservative.
    Outspoken in his condemnation of Communism

Garabandal Prophecies 1961-1965
  • The Warning      Three great supernatural events
    were prophesied at Garabandal. The first is a
    worldwide Warning from God to be seen and then
    felt interiorly by everyone on earth. At that
    moment, we will see the wrong we've done and the
    good we failed to do. The Warning will be sent to
    correct the conscience of the world and prepare
    it for the great Miracle.
  • The Miracle      The Miracle will take place at
    the grove of pine trees on a bluff overlooking
    the village of Garabandal. It will occur on a
    Thursday evening at 830 on or between the eighth
    and the sixteenth of March, April or May.
    (Visionary Conchita Gonzalez-Keena knows the date
    and will announce it eight days in advance.) It
    will be on the Feastday of a martyr of the
    Eucharist AND coincide with an event in the
    Church. All those either in the village or
    surrounding mountains will see it. The sick who
    are present will be cured, sinners converted and
    the incredulous will believe. As a result of the
    Miracle, Russia will be converted.
  • The "Sign"      After the Miracle, a permanent
    visible supernatural sign will remain at the
    pines in Garabandal until the end of time.
  • The Chastisement      If the world still does not
    change after the Miracle, then God will send the

Pope John Paul II May 13th 1981
  • Saint Anselm, Bishop of Sunium (13th century)
  • "You will be ruined, city of seven hills (Rome),
    when the letter K will be praised in your walls
    (Karol Woytilla,  Pope John Paul II). Then, your
    fall will be near. (...) And you, man of big
    beard, you will lose it and you will lose your
    value in the whole world, for having presided the
    death of the Pontiff called John Obi ". (John
    Paul is the only Pope that adopted two names. Bis
    is two in Latin).
  • This prophecy, could be about the bearded Turkish
    gunman Mehmet Ali Agca, attempted almost
    succeeded in  assassinating Pope John Paul II on
    May 13, 1981), that could of changed the course
    of history, except for the miraculous
    intervention by Our Lady which saved him.
  • "After the assassination attempt of 13 May, 1981,
    it appeared evident to His Holiness that it was a
    "motherly hand which guided the bullet's path,"
    enabling the "dying Pope" to halt "at the
    threshold of death."

The Three Secrets of Medjugorje
  • The first of the three secrets of Medjugorje,
    Bosnia-Herzegovina are outlined below -
  • Quotation taken from Ron Conte Jr., theologian,
    editor of .net and
    translator of the Catholic Public Domain Version
    of the Sacred Bible.
  • His excellent printed book on all of the Ten
    Secrets is available from http//
  • 1st The Day of Repentance, Good Friday April
    10th 2009 proves that God exists.
  • 2nd The Day of Consolation, Easter Sunday
    April 12th 2009 proves that God is all-knowing
    and that he understands all our sufferings and
    failings. 3rd The Day of Healing, Ascension
    Thursday May 13th 2010 proves that Catholic
    Christianity is the truest of all religions,
    since the Permanent Signs are located only at
    site of Catholic apparitions of Jesus and/or
    Mary. The Day of Healing also proves that God is
    all-powerful, since so many persons are healed
    from every kind of illness, injury, and defect.
  • Zechariah 1210 And I will pour out a spirit
    of compassion and supplication on the house of
    David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that
    they will look on the on whom they have pierced,
    and they will mourn for him, as one mourns for an
    only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one
    weeps over a first born.
  • Zechariah 131 on that day a fountain shall
    be opened for the house of David and the
    inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from
    sin and impurity

2005 Beatification process begins
  • When Pope John Paul II died on April 2th, 2005,
    Pope Benedict XVI had made a deliberate
    public media announcement on May 13, 2005 to
    fast-track his beatification process to
    sainthood, by waiving the normal five year
    waiting stand-down period.

The Miracle - May 13th 2010

  • Great Wonder / Permanent Signs/ Worldwide Healing
    Miracle !
  • (Garabandal 1961-1965 Prophecy Secret and also
    the Third Secret Medjugorje)
  • The Feast of the Ascension , with Christ no
    longer physically present among us, is still with
    us in the Eucharist.
  • The Great Wonder or Miracle demonstrates to the
    world that Christ is still present among us, even

Why are we locked into 2010?
  • Firstly Joey Lomangino Born 27th June 1931
    will be 79 years old, almost 80 when the Great
    Miracle happens.
  • Dear Joey Today at the pines in a locution the
    Blessed Virgin told me to tell you will receive
    new eyes on the day of the Great Miracle…
  • Joey Lomangino, who has dedicated his life to
    spreading the Message of Garabandal, is totally
    an incurably blind. But, through the above quote
    from a letter from the Garabandal visionary
    Conchita Gonzalez, Joey has the assurance that he
    will one day see. Conchita also quoted the Virgin
    as saying The first thing he (Joey) shall see
    will be the miracle which my Son will perform
    through my intercession, and from that time on he
    will see permanently.

  • Secondly, The older adult visionaries of
    Garabandal and Medjugorje have to make an
    announcement about the Secrets, just days before
    they occur.
  • See http//
  • Thirdly, The Miracle has to coincide with a Great
    Event of the Church which has never happened
    within the lifetime of the visionaries They were
    born in the 1950s . This Great Event is making
    a Pope into a Saint i.e. John Paul II and also
    on the Feast day of a young Eucharistic Martyr.
  • Lastly it has to align itself perfectly with past
    prophecies and events as mentioned earlier within
    the presentation.

Events leading up to The Miracle
  • Conchita , Born in 1949 a Garabandal visionary
    was quoted as saying this-
  • There would only be three popes after Pope John
  • Conchita said three popes, and then the End of
    Times...We are now in the End of Times!
  • Conchita was with her mother Aniceta and Mrs.
    Ortiz on the way to the Church. The following
    conversation arose --...The Pope has died," her
    mother said. Conchita Answered "Ah, yes the Pope
    died. Then there are THREE Popes left." Up to
    this point, so far so good. Nevertheless, once
    they returned home, Aniceta felt uneasy and
    wanted to more deeply know the thoughts of her
    daughter who seemed to act with reservation in
    the presence of Mrs. Ortiz. At home, alone,
    fearing a possible error of her daughter, her
    mother asked her "How do you know that there are
    only THREE Popes left?" Conchita answered "By
    the Holy Virgin. In fact she told me that FOUR
    Popes would still come but that She did not count
    one of them." Aniceta Said "But why not then,
    count ONE?" Conchita answered "She did not say
    why, She only said to me that she did not count
    ONE. Nevertheless she told me that he would rule
    the Church by just a very short time." Answering
    the question, Aniceta asked "Perhaps for that
    reason she does not count him?" Conchita said "I
    do not know why. Her mother asked "And what
    comes later?" Conchita said "She did not say"
    In retrospect we know the other Pope to be Pope
    Paul I who only lasted 33 days in his
    pontificate. Translated from http//personales.mun and http//www.heiliggei
  • Pope Benedict XVI will see the Miracle from
    wherever he happens to be.

The Miracle is three-fold (a.) There will be
very many miraculous healings all over the
earth. Miraculous Permanent Signs will be left in
the places where the Virgin Mary has appeared,
including Medjugorje, Garabandal, and several
other places. (c.) A vast number of unbelievers
will be converted to Catholicism.
