Mother María de las Nieves García
"School Memoirs of Conchita" (1966-1968)
In the afternoon, Conchita would come to find me and we would speak in one of the drawing rooms. I never forced her; she came voluntarily. A Claretian priest, Father Joaquin María Alonso, who was in Fatima studying Lucia's case for the Congregation of the Faith, found out and came to see me more than once. He spoke with the Mother General and told me that I should write down everything that I spoke about with Conchita, and even if 100 years went by, I should not destroy those memoirs.
On March 3, 1962, the four young visionaries, Conchita, Mari Loli, Jacinta, and Mari Cruz, received an anonymous letter in San Sebastián de Garabandal.
“Félix López, a former student of the Major Seminary in Derio (Bilbao, Spain) and later professor in the school in Garabandal, was gathered together with a few others in the kitchen in Conchita’s house. The girl had received a letter that she did not understand, so she asked Félix to translate it for her. It was writen in Italian, and Félix, after reading it, said, 'Based on his way of writing, it could be from Padre Pío.'”
