Letter from Padre Pio to the 4 girls March 3, 1962

Envelope which contained the letter sent from padre pio to the girls

The Envelope

As seen in the photographs, the envelope is medium-sized, currently yellowish white, addressed to Conchita González, San Sebastian de Garabandal, Cosío (Pesues), Santander, Spagna. In the part of the seal, which is already partially destroyed, it is clearly printed that it was sent from the Convent of the Capuchins, (S. María) delle Grazie, San Giovanni Rotondo (Foggia), Italy, Postale N. 13 / 8511.

Observe that the envelope addressed to Conchita is similar in size and shape and bears the identical return address stamp to that of envelopes used by Padre Pio on display in San Giovanni Rotondo today.

The Letter

The letter reads:

Dear Girls,
At nine o’clock this morning the Blessed Virgin Mary told me about you, oh dear girls, about your visions and she told me to say to you:

“Oh blessed girls of San Sebastian de Garabandal, I promise that I will be with you until the end of the centuries, and you will be with me until the end of the world, and then united with me in the glory of paradise.”

Pray and make others pray, because the world is on the road to perdition. 

They do not believe in you or in your conversations with The White Lady, but they will believe when it is too late.

March 3, 1962

While there is no signature on the letter it is clear based on the matching envelope markings that it originates from the monastery at San Giovanni Rotondo.  The writer of the letter says that the Virgin appeared to him at 9 o'clock in the morning of March 3, 1962 -- who else but Padre Pio could that be?  Nobody else was having apparitions in San Giovanni Rotondo at that time.
