The history of the House of Mary, Our Lady of the Poor, began when some devotees of the Virgin Mary, along with monks of the Grace Mercy Order came together to support the fulfilment of two requests of Our Lady: the consecration of the Children of Mary and the manifestation of the sacred objects.
Over the years, many people have consecrated themselves as Children of Mary, during the Apparitions of Our Lady. At the same time, the task of manifesting and spreading the sacred objects grew. Upon them, Blessed Mary poured out sublime graces, and it was of great importance that they reach the greatest number of souls.
That first group of devotees of the Virgin Mary began to collaborate in welcoming pilgrims who visited the Marian Center of Figueira, and also participated in supporting the prayer meetings held by the Pilgrimage for Peace.
The activities were carried out at the headquarters of Association Mary, located in Comunidade-Luz Figueira, in the rural area of Carmo da Cachoeira, Minas Gerais,
In mid-2016, it was necessary to transfer the task to the urban area of Carmo da Cachoeira. Many attempts have been made to obtain a space in the central region of the city. In the end, the group received the donation of a house! At the bottom of it, they found a small forest with some horses and many birds under the shade of the trees; it was a sign that Our Lady was there, in the presence of the Kingdoms of Nature.
The house needed minor renovations in the upper part and the completion of the basement, but the group was oriented to think of something bigger. Based upon this impulse, the initial renovation project was elaborated, including workrooms, the stock of sacred objects and celestial garments, the garments of the Children of Mary, rooms for lodging and a prayer room.
At the beginning of 2017, after nine months of persistence, love, dedication and intense work, the house was ready, with the collaboration of many Children of Mary!
On February 9, 2017, The Most Holy Mary blessed the new space, which was adorned with many flowers to greet Her. There, She transmitted Her daily message, through the visionary Friar Elias
