Requests of the Virgin Mary

Requests of The Virgin Mary

The Blessed Virgin, through the visionary Friar Elías del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús, made several requests for the House of Mary, Our Lady of the Poor.

To fulfill each of them, it is necessary the presence, joy, support and love of the consecrated Children of Mary and of the  devotees, thus Our Lady may touch more and more hearts in the four points of the Earth.

Know the Virgin Marys requests and help us to manifest and expand them!

  • Welcoming pilgrims. The first request made was that the House of Mary, Our Lady of the Poor, would welcome all the pilgrims who approached, to help them to keep alive the impulse of prayer from the heart. Thus, the House formed a welcoming group with the Children of Mary, a group that grows day by day. Those who offer themselves for this task are called Welcoming, and they are committed to irradiate the Love and Peace of the Virgin Mary. The Welcoming  participate and support the prayer meetings with the Divine Messengers and the activities of the Marian Centers founded by Our Lady. 
  • Daily liturgy. Our Lady advised that in the House there were different moments, throughout the day, dedicated to prayer. These liturgies create a powerful channel of light that reaches the entire city of Carmo da Cachoeira and, in addition, prayers reach all throughout Brazil and the world. Praying and teaching how to pray is the purpose of the daily liturgy of the House; these are spiritual keys that support many hearts, helping them to transform their lives.  
  • Prayer with families in the city of Carmo da Cachoeira. In this request, we see how the Virgin Mary wants us to increasingly recognize ourselves as brothers and sisters, children of the same Father. Prayer with the families of the city is held in their own homes, to encourage them to pray with their relatives and to set up their own Alter of the Lord. The Children of Mary accompany every step of the praying families and they are always available to help. 
  • A Rosary of Light for the world. The Rosaries of Light are ecumenical prayer groups that, through the Holy Rosary, represent the first light beads of the great Rosary of the Virgin Mary to embrace the world. She asked that prayer groups be created in each country, based on the Holy Family of Nazareth. The House of Mary, Our Lady of the Poor is home to the Rosaries of Light. There are already over 500 prayer groups in more than 12 countries, and you can be part of one! 
  • Image of Mary, Mother of the Divine Conception of the Trinity. Another request of the Blessed Virgin was to place an image of Her Face as Mary, Mother of the Divine Conception of the Trinity, in a visible place in the House of Mary, Our Lady of the Poor, so that everyone who arrived or passed through the House could receive the codes of love of Her Immaculate Heart. This image was finally posted on December 4, 2018, come and visit!
  • Water Fountain. Along with the image of Mary, Mother of the Divine Conception of the Trinity, Blessed Mary indicated the construction of a fountain, which would be the symbol of renewal. Through the water from this source, Our Lady would erase the evils of the world through the light emanating from Her. The House of Mary, Our Lady of the Poor Fountain,  was revealed on April 28, 2019. Come and see this special place of Carmo da Cachoeira! 
  • Chapel of the Faces of Most Holy Mary. Our Lady asked for the creation of a large prayer room called “Chapel of the Faces of Most Holy Mary”. Here there should be each one of Her advocations and different Faces, revealed during Her appearances throughout the world, with the purpose of uniting the hearts of Her children from the five continents. The project has already started with 54 images that are currently displayed in the entrance hall of the House of Mary, Our Lady of the Poor. Her Faces imprint something profoundly beautiful in the hearts that, while standing before Her, recognize Her as the Mother of all, without distinction. Find out about the Faces of Mary (Gallery Link) and help us to manifest this great prayer room and include more advocations of Our Lady!
  • Grotto with the image of Our Lady of Graces. The Virgin Mary asked for the construction of a grotto with the image of Our Lady of the Graces on the land located behind the House Of Mary, Our Lady of the Poor, in Carmo da Cachoeira. Blessed Mary indicated that is should be named "Harmony Forest." This space, surrounded by trees, will have an important function, because there, the pilgrims will be able to be in silence and in contemplation, to join the Immaculate Heart of Mary. For the realization of the grotto and the purchase of the land, we need the support of many hearts! See here how to collaborate.
