Ever since my wife and I discovered Garabandal, our life has changed. We had our conversion through Garabandal’s messages as practicing Catholics. Incidentally, we are yearning for the day that we can go…

Everything began about five years ago, when I lost my job with my wife and three children in my care. This drove me to go to the Blessed Sacrament and surrender my life and family to God. Very soon after, I read about the story and apparition of Our Blessed Mother as Our Lady of Guadalupe. This brought us to discover other Marian apparitions, and this is how we heard about Garabandal, as Our Lady of Mount Carmel. One thing led us to another, and we began to get all the information about the apparitions and messages at Garabandal. It really surprised us, the events are from 1961, a completely modern incident.

The messages marked us so much that, even while we were practicing Catholics, learning about Garabandal meant our conversion. Now we go to Daily Mass, pray the Rosary, and strive to live to please God and not society. We have understood the value of the Holy Eucharist, of sacrifice, obedience, and charity. Another result is that now we are serving an apostolate that we never would have imagined doing. Our family has grown, now there are six of us…our story is longer, but this is a short summary.
