NPEnglandGThere are many documentaries about Garabandal, but Garabandal, Only God Knows is the first full-length movie that has ever dared to take this story to cinemas. Within just a month, Garabandal will be premiering in England.


18 June 1961. In a small village in Northern Spain, San Sebastián de Garabandal, four girls—Conchita, Jacinta, Mari Loli, and Mari Cruz—claim that St. Michael the Archangel has just appeared to them. A few days later, on 2 July 1961, they receive a visit from Our Lady of Mount Carmel. After this first encounter, there are more than two thousand visits from this heavenly Lady. The village’s parish priest, Fr. Valentín, and the Civil Guard brigadier, Mr. Juan Álvarez Seco, suddenly become protagonists in an overwhelming event. They must struggle to find where the truth lies, while confronting a perplexed hierarchy and facing an ever-growing multitude of people who arrive at the village in the search of answers.


During the apparitions in Garabandal, Our Lady entrusted the 4 girls with 2 messages and the prophecy of a series of future events—the warning, a miracle and a chastisement—that would lead to the conversion of many and prepare the world for the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Church has not yet closed off the study of these apparitions, much less condemned them.

It is interesting to note that on the list of people who believed in the supernatural character of the events in Garabandal, we can find such saints as Padre Pio, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Pope John Paul II, Pope Paul VI and Jose Maria Escrivá de Balaguer, as well as Blessed Mother Esperanza de Collevalenza, the venerable Marta Robin and many others. And the reality is that the events that took place there continue to cause an enormous interest all over the world. Proof of this, is the fact that this movie has already been seen in 30 countries by more than 300,000 people.

Mater Spei is now proud to announce that England—shortly to be re-dedicated as the dowry of Mary—will soon be added to that list of countries. Garabandal, Only God Knows will be premiering in England in April 2020. To date, the premiere will be taking place at the following location:

Cinema: Tyneside Cinema, 10 Pilgrim St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 6QG, UK
Date and Time: Sunday, 5 April 2020 at 16:00

In her second message, Our Lady asks us to make more sacrifices and to reflect on the Passion of Jesus. What better way to begin Holy Week 2020, than by taking time to reflect upon Our Lady’s message and open your heart to all she wants to tell you?Let her speak to you through Garabandal, Only God Knows. Who knows, it could be a life-changing experience.

May Our Blessed Mother continue to bless you.
