“Family Is the Hope of Humanity” *
“When recalling the Synod of Bishops on ‘the vocation and mission of the family in the Church and in the contemporary world’, Pope Francis emphasized that a family that walks in the way of the Lord is essential to attest the love of God. Thus family deserves all the dedication the Church is capable of giving. Pope Bergoglio also stated that ‘the men and women of today need an injection of family spirit.’”**
That is why the mission carried out by the Bianchini family (husband, children, grandchildren, etc.) and spiritual children of the Servant of God Maria Esperanza Bianchini – main messenger of Our Lady of Betania – is vital in these times.
Recently, Maria Coromoto Bianchini Marrero, her husband Carlos Marrero and members of the Betania Foundation, Hugo and Andrea Liscano, traveled to the United States to participate in the 8th World Meeting of Families’ Exhibit that was held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, in Philadelphia, PA, USA. Their objective was to spread the message of fraternal reconciliation and family unity under the motto: “Family is the hope of humanity”* of the Servant of God Maria Esperanza Bianchini. They shared with the people the message of love and reconciliation of Our Lady Reconciler of All Peoples given at the Sanctuary of Betania, Venezuela, reiterating with their lives what the Bishop of Rome had said: “Family offers society a much more human perspective based on the free alliance of love.”**
