What is a Marian Center?

In the year 2011 the Virgin Mary requested the foundation of what She, Herself, called Marian Centers, sacred places of prayer and devotion.

A Marian Center is an offering from God ́s Love to His children on Earth. Simple places of prayer and peace where the souls, no matter their belief or religion, have the opportunity of finding that peace within themselves and, in this way, have the possibility to remember who they truly are.

Through prayer, silence and communion with Life, pilgrims from different parts of the world come to the Marian Centers and find a path towards redemption, inner healing and reconciliation with God.

These sacred spaces are founded under the inspiration of the Servant and Messenger of God, the Virgin Mary, and in each one of them, a Gift of God is settled by Her Maternal Spirit, which allows the hearts of all Her children to reach redemption.

The Divine Messengers have revealed to us that They would not be able to continue appearing to humanity for much longer. For this reason, they leave us, as legacy, Their Marian Centers, which have turned themselves into islands of salvation, spaces of fraternity among beings of different cultures who have the same goal: Peace.

Beloved children, I would like to build, at the Marian Centers, an imitation of My Kingdom,
which is invisible to the eyes of the body, but tangible to the heart.

Virgin Mary, June 25, 2016.

How did the Marian Centers arise?

God reveals Himself to His children since forever because His Love for each one of us is infinite and unfathomable. And it is through this great Love that He calls us to meet with Him.

Forever the Father has sent His Divine Messengers to transmit His message of love and peace for all of His Creation.

Thus, it was on August 8, 2007, in Paysandú, Uruguay, that the Divine Mother came, once again, to meet with Her Children, in order to correct their ways and to prepare them for the meeting with Christ. Our Lady began to appear to the visionary Friar Elías del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús (who already had the grace of receiving the presence of the Celestial Mother since the infancy), to Mother María Shimani de Montserrat and to a small group that offered itself to pray and to serve God in an unconditional way. It was from this moment that this love story began...

Thus, a cycle of profound preparation for the group initiated; to whom the Most Holy Virgin Mary taught to pray, to serve and to surrender to the Will of God. It was at that time that She gave Her great impulses, founding the Grace Mercy Order, a Christian monastic Order which is autonomous and ecumenical, with a life consecrated to God, and She created the foundations of what Her Light-Communities would be, places of fraternal life and of communion with the Kingdoms of Nature, where the principles of brotherhood, simplicity and respect towards Creation are to be lived.

But it was in the year 2011 when Our Divine Mother finally requested that Her Apparitions should be made public in order to guide humanity back towards God. In the month of August, 2011, She appeared during thirteen days in a row, in the department of Paysandú, Uruguay, and then, in September, She appeared during seventeen days in Minas Gerais, Brazil. In these two countries She founded Her two first Marian Centers.

In each Apparition, Our Mother oriented Her children so that they may know how to carry forward this important task together with Her. Thus, She founded Association Mary, a nonprofit civil organization that would move all this Work of the Divine Messengers, gathering many souls, servers of Her Immaculate Heart; She also founded Mercy Mary TV, a TV web channel through which She would be able to spread Her public Apparitions to all of humanity.

In the year 2012, the Most Holy Virgin Mary revealed that She would also begin to appear to one of Her daughters, visionary Sister Lucía de Jesús, a nun of the Grace Mercy Order, through whom the Most Chaste Saint Joseph would transmit His words to all of us as well, beginning in the year 2013. In that same year, Our Lord Christ Jesus gave us the blessing of receiving His Presence among us through the visionary Friar Elías del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús, by beginning a cycle of daily messages. The three Divine Messengers made Themselves present in order to guide the steps of our humanity in these difficult and decisive times.

Which are the Marian Centers?

There are four Marian Centers that have been founded and consecrated by Our Mother and Lady in South America and there are other four that She requested should be manifested.

The Marian Centers are places blessed by the Virgin Mary as points of Light on the planet, where her servant children, collaborators, and pilgrims come together to contemplate, pray, and renew their devotion to Her Immaculate Heart, in order that peace will reign in humanity and on the planet.
