Feast of Our Lady of Loreto

The Miracle of the Holy House of Loreto by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo (1743)


The 10th of December is the feast day of Our Lady of Loreto. She is the patron saint of aviators, fliers, pilots, and builders.
Our Lady of Loreto, also spelled as Loretto, is one of the titles of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is associated with the house she was born in and the site of the Annunciation and the home of the Holy Family. The tradition of this Holy House originates from the Apostolic times. In the 13th century the house miraculously moved from Nazareth in the Holy Land to Loreto, Italy, carried there by angels. It was moved to prevent its destruction by the Moslems. A basilica was built around the Holy House in Italy, called the Basilica della Santa Casa (which in English is Basilica of the Holy House). On the doors of the Basilica 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 Medjugorje

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.
