SIX IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN SATURDAY, MAY 1,1MI. \ Girls Expect Christ's Mother fo Appear Again By HAROLD K. MILKS i SAN SEBASTIAN DE GAR A ; SANDAL, Spain (AP) — Fourj /ears have made but little j ;hange in the lives ot four sim- jle Spanish girls who on June 18, 1961, claimed they received ;he first of a series of visits from the mother of Christ. The Catholic Church has not iccepted the authenticity of :hese claims, yet the curious from far and near continue to •nake the difficult pilgrimage to his mountain village to speak #ith the four girls and hear 'heir stories. Two successive bishops of the Santander Diocese have cautioned their priests that the claim of the four girls to have seen and talked with the Virgin Mary "until now lack confirmation or authentication." Yet their reports have received serious study from many Catholic churchmen. Father J. M. Bonance of Mars-Sur-Allicr, Nievre, France, published a report on his investigation. "Ban Sebastian de Garaban- dal, what a marvel," wrote Father Bonance. "It is a corner of paradise. Never has the Virgin shown herself so near to her children, so maternal, so tender. When one has lived there one can say with the children, 'Mother, take us with you.'" The "paradise" is a typical northern Spanish village of 300 inhabitants who live in small, rustic houses crowded together in the Valley of Cosio. It lies 50 miles from the seaport and provincial capital, Santander. To reach the scene, one must ravel at least part of the way jn foot or horseback. A tiny :hurch is the most outstanding feature of the village, most of whose people scratch out a living from the rocky farmlands cf he valley. What manner of people are he four young girls, who now n-edict a return of the Virgin or another visit to Garabandal ibout June 10? They claim they ast saw her Dec. 8, 1963. All were — at the time of the irst apparition —- typical vil- age children who took advan age of a festival day to slip iway to an orchard to play, and here said they encountered the ision. Two of the girls were 12 when hey first reported their meeting vith the Virgin — saying she ippeared to them in the same jarb she wore in Fatima, Portugal, on the occasion of the offi- :ially accepted miracle of Oct '3, 1917. The other two girls vere 10 at the time. Today the eldest, Conchita ; tonzalez, daughter of a village rtdow, is at 16 a serious, stu- iious ffirl, quiet but friendly. Text in age is Maria Dolores lazon. a happy, smiling girl 'hose friends call her Loli. The third child, Maria Cruz ionzalez, is reserved and quiet, Ufficult to talk with, less excessive than her three compan ins. The fourth, Jacinta Gonzalez ;omez, also is timid and more eluctant to discuss her "vl- ions," especially with stran- :ers. Usually it is Conchita Gon- ilez who acts as spokesman. All four girls work and study 'n the village, helping theii amllies keep their chill stone louses clean, working at times in the fields, going frequently to Mass. All four appear to lead lives no different from other children growing up in this village- with its close-knit,, inter- narried inhabitants. There is a difference when the iris discuss the visits they say lie Virgin made to them; , "I was the first to see our vis : tor," said Conchita. "We were : playing near the orchard and suddenly there was a thunderclap. Then I felt some presence and knelt down to pray. At first my friends thought I..was ill. Then they saw it, too." Their first visitor, they told their families later, was St. Mi- 3hael. Later the Virgin Mother ippeared to them, they said. As their "seizure" ended, the children said, they ran to the village church to pray. There other children heard them sobbing and called the village schoolteacher to whom they first recited their experience. "One of the marvels of Gara* bandal is that the miracles are always foretold," Father Bo- riance wrote in his report. "On July 1, 1961, the Angel — St. Michael —told the children Uiey would see Our Lady of Car: me1 the next day. So on the fol- lowinf day she appeared to : them. 'They later described her in .detail." ; -Father Bonance also reported I that the Miracle of the Host — on which a host supposedly appeared on Conchita's tongue — • was announced 15 days before\ hand. . The girls have said they ex- a 'new holy visit June 10, many of Barabandal are ;to Mt if they, too, may irttion.

Almost singlt handed, Father Conklin da- signed, drew plans and built a huge recreation-gymnasium at St. Mary's, the senior seminary in Norwalk, Connecticut, for more than 5,000 Holy Ghost Fathers and Brothers. The 12,000 square feet of floor space is taken up with a gymnasium, stage, game room, music room, study and ham radio room, with which the Fathers maintain communications with their missionaries around the world. The faith of neighbors and friends helped Father Conklin build the estimated $300,000 complex at an actual cost of $42,000. Father Conklin spent two years in the construction of the center. It will not only be used by the Father* and seminarians, but is available for civic groups throughout the area to use and enjoy. Father Conklin, during his many years in missions in the Caribbean, has built other structures including a shrine. All of these are monuments to man's faith in God, The Master Builder. • AP Newsfeoturts* youth hour, 6:15: evening service, 7:30. First Lutheran (LCA). The Rev. Rudolph Kemppainen, pas tor.
