From 15 January to 2 March 1933, the Virgin Mary appeared eight times to Mariette Béco, a young girl aged 11 years.
The message that she gave her still remains relevant in our time.
Each year, hundreds of thousands of pilgrims, come, alone or in group, notably during the Triduum of the sick, to confide to Our Lady their poverties, their sufferings, their pains, their wants. They come to entrust themselves to the Mother of the Saviour, and to express their confidence and their hope on Jesus Christ, the source of all graces.
Today, as she did to Mariette, the Virgin of the Poor leads each pilgrim in Banneux to the way of life. She invites them to «push the hands in the water» of the Spring, to discover in Jesus, the true Life.
