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

April 02, 2018 Message to Mirjana

Dear children, Through the great love of the Heavenly Father I am beside you as your mother and you are beside me as my children, as apostles of my love whom I ceaselessly gather around me. My children, you are those who, along with prayer, need to completely surrender to my Son so that you may no longer live but my Son may live in you - so that all those who do not know my Son may see Him in you and come to desire to know Him. Pray that in you they may see resolute humility and goodness, a readiness to serve others; that in you they may see that you live your vocation in the world with the heart, in communion with my Son; that in you they may see meekness, tenderness and love for my Son as well as for all brothers and sisters. Apostles of my love, you must pray much and cleanse your hearts so that you may be the first to walk on the way of my Son, that you may be the just who are united with the justice of my Son. My children, as apostles of my love, you must be united in the communion which emanates from my Son, so that my children who do not know my Son may recognize the communion of love and may come to desire to walk on the way of life, the way of unity with my Son. Thank you.
