Our Lady of Loreto

Marble screen around the Holy House

Our Lady of Loreto or Loretto, is a title given to the Blessed Virgin Mary which is associated with a house where Mary was born, experienced the Annunciation and where the Holy Family lived. This tradition of the Holy House comes from the Apostolic times. It is said that in the 13th century the house was moved from Nazareth to several places and finally landing in Loreto, Italy by angels. This was to protect it from destruction by Moslems who destroyed the previous basilica that housed it. A basilica is now built around the Holy House in Italy and is one of the most popular pilgrimage sites in the world. On the door of the basilica it is written " The whole world has no place more sacred... For here was the Word made Flesh, and here was born the Virgin Mother." Our Lady of Loreto is the patron saint of aviators, fliers, pilots and builders.

February 2, 2018 Message to Mirjana

Dear children, you whom my Son loves, you whom I love with an immeasurable motherly love, do not permit for selfishness, for self love, to rule the world. Do not permit for love and goodness to be hidden. You who are loved, who have come to know the love of my Son, remember that to be loved means to love. My children, have faith. When you have faith you are happy and are spreading peace; your soul trembles with joy. My Son is in such a soul. When you are giving yourself for the faith, when you are giving yourself for love, when you are doing good to your neighbor, my Son smiles in your soul. Apostles of my love, I am turning to you as a mother. I am gathering you around myself and I desire to lead you on the way of love and faith, on the way which leads to the light of the world. I am here for the sake of love, for the sake of faith, because with my motherly blessing I desire to give you hope and strength on your way - because the way which leads to my Son is not easy. It is full of renunciation, giving, sacrifice, forgiveness and much, much love. But this way leads to peace and happiness. My children, do not believe lying voices which speak to you about false things, false glitter. You, my children, return to the Scripture. I am looking at you with immeasurable love, and through God's grace am making myself evident to you. My children, set out with me. May your soul tremble with joy. Thank you.
