From January 15 to March 2, 1933, the Virgin Mary appeared eight times to an 11-year-old girl, Mariette Beco.
The message she left her is still relevant today.
Each year, hundreds of thousands of pilgrims come, alone or in groups, especially during Triduums of the sick, to confide to Our Lady their poverty, their suffering, their sorrows, their research. They come to confide in the Mother of the Savior, and to express their trust and their hope in Him who is the Source of all grace, Jesus Christ.
Even today, as she did for Mariette, the Virgin of the Poor guides each pilgrim from Banneux on the road of existence. She invites him to push the hands in the water of the Source, to draw true Life from Jesus.
Welcome to Banneux!
