Welcome to MariaEsperanza.org

The Betania Foundation is a Private Association of the Faithful created in 1979, due to the apparitions of Our Lady to our Servant of God Maria Esperanza Medrano Bianchini, in the Sanctuary of Betania, Venezuela. These apparitions became public in 1984 to over 150 people, and were investigated and approved in the Pastoral Instruction on the Apparitions of the Blessed Virgin in Finca Betania, by Bishop Pio Bello Ricardo, Bishop of the diocese. The Betania Foundation is working to spread the message of love and reconciliation of the Mother of God, and to share the spirituality of the Servant of God Maria Esperanza through lectures, publications, presentations of the Betania Choir, works of mercy, etc., and the testimony of the lives of its members.
