Betania XVI Community

Pilgrimage to Betania

The message of love and family unity from Our Lady can be found in Betania, Venezuela. We have traveled many times to the beautiful grotto built there to honor the place where the Blessed Mother appeared to Maria Esperanza. Each time, we and the pilgrims who accompany us, feel the love and presence of Our Lady. The beautiful shrine, chapel and many devotional areas will raise your minds and hearts to prayer. It is truly a piece of heaven on earth.

Our next trip is scheduled for August 3-13, 2016

Join us. We look forward to sharing this incredible trip with you.

“N”, or ن​, is the first letter of the Arabic word for Christian, “Nasrani” or Nazarene. It has become the symbol of solidarity for Iraqi Christians who are being forced by ISIS to leave their homes unless they convert to Islam, pay a fine, or face ‘death by the sword.’
 

Please recite the rosary in support of persecuted Christians throughout the world.
