The Obedience of the Blessed Virgin Mary

In Garabandal the Virgin Mary taught the girls to be obedient to the hierarchy of the Church.

The Bishop (apostolic administrator) recommended that the church be closed during the ecstasies to avoid the unintentionally disrespectful behavior of the onlookers who tried to get a close look of the girls. Their parents and the townspeople were happy with this norm, for they did not want to make a scene. The first day that the church was closed, the girls, in ecstasy, went towards the church as they normally did and the crowd heard them say, “Ah! It’s alright then.” When the ecstasy ended, they said, “We wanted the church to be open, but Our Lady told us that what the priest did was correct.”
