Garabandal and the Visitation

The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared for the first time in Garbandal on July 2nd, 1961. At the time, this day was the feast of the Visitation until it was later changed to the 31st of May by Paul VI in the reform of the Calendarium Romanum on February 14, 1969. With this in mind, we can most certainly exclaim with Saint Elizabeth, "Who am I that the Mother of my Lord should come to me?" (Lk 1:43), because she came to bring us joy, to bring us Jesus.
John Paul II said that "Elizabeth, with her joyful exclamation, invites us to appreciate all that the presence of the Virgin brings as a gift to the life of each believer."
In the biblical narration of the Visitation of Our Lady to her cousin Elizabeth we contemplate how charity urged Mary to go "with haste to the mountain" in order to help her cousin Elizabeth who was with child. More than lend her help physically we should look at how much joy she bought her by bringing Jesus with her.

Where there is a Mother

In Garabandal the Virgin brought with her on several occasions the child Jesus.
