From 15th January to 2nd March 1933, the Virgin Mary appeared eight times to an 11-year-old young girl, Mariette Beco.
The message she gave her is still relevant in our time.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of pilgrims come, alone or in group, especially during the Triduum of the sick, to confide to Our Lady their poverty, their sufferings, their pains, their wants. They come to confide themselves to the Mother of the Saviour, and to express their trust and hope in Jesus Christ who is the source of all graces.
Even today, as she did to Mariette, the Virgin of the Poor leads each pilgrim of Banneux to the way of life. She invites the pilgrim to push their hands in the water of the Spring to discover Jesus who is the True Life.
Welcome to Banneux!
