Conchita was given a Polaroid camera and took this picture during her ecstasy of the Blessed Mother at the pines in Garabandal. This fact is stated by Mother Maria de las Nieves.
Mother María de las Nieves García was told by Conchita that people wanted a photo of Our Lady, so one day they put a camera in her hands and told her how to operate it because she had no clue. After falling into ecstasy, Conchita started handling the camera as she had been instructed, and Our Lady smiled at her.
Conchita told Our Lady that she was holding that thing because people wanted a photo of her, and Our Lady said to her, “I’ve come out [in the photo].” When the ecstasy ended, the photo was looked at: the result was a light shape of Our Lady on a dark background. Conchita’s mother kept and cherished the photo on her bedside table until her death.
From Glen Hudson: “I asked Conchita if she would be kind enough to offer some words of advice to all of us, in this troubling times.”
Here Are her words.
“God is detaching us from the securities of this world. In the silence of the Church or in our house, we are now able to make an examination of conscience so we can clean what prevents us from hearing the Voice of God clearly. With sincerity we can ask God to tell us what He wants of us today, and continue to do that every day. And spend as much time as possible with God at church or somewhere in your home or where you find the silence. He is all we need.”
