We received a letter from Joey Lomangino dated 2 February 2002 informing us as follows, and I quote:
THE REASON FOR WRITING
YOU IS TO NOTIFY YOU THAT WE
Joey obviously has to curtail his activities and the activities of the New York Centre. (ED: The New York Center is still active and will continue to be so. Please continue to contact them as before for materials.)
As you know, we have been publishing a newsletter as well as reprinting Joey’s magazine for our members and subscribers, and for some time now we have been contemplating combining the two publications into one. We have now decided to implement this plan immediately by publishing our own magazine.
We have named this magazine GARABANDAL INTERNATIONAL since we shall be inviting Garabandal Centres around the world to contribute articles. Furthermore, we shall advertise it through our website in order to achieve worldwide circulation. This inaugural issue consists of 32 pages, eight more than usual. Furthermore, by subscribing you automatically become a member of the movement.
This magazine is being especially dedicated to the four Seers of Garabandal: Conchita, Mari-Loli, Jacinta, and Mari Cruz. It is also dedicated to Joey Lomangino in recognition and appreciation of his devotion to Garabandal and to the movement, which he, by and large, initiated under most difficult circumstances.
For all we know, these developments, sanctioned from up above, may be the prelude to significant developments within the movement and in accordance with the Garabandal prophecies since the very next prophecy will be the Warning.
We need your support more than ever. Let us stand together.
In union of prayer,
