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

January 2, 2019 Message to Mirjana

Dear children, sadly, among you, my children, there is so much battle, hatred, personal interests and selfishness. My children, so easily you forget my Son, His words, His love. Faith is being extinguished in many souls, and hearts are being grasped by material things of the world. But my motherly heart knows that there are still those who believe and love, who are seeking how to draw all the closer to my Son, who are tirelessly seeking my Son - then, in this way, they are also seeking me. These are the humble and the meek with their pain and suffering which they carry in silence with their hopes and, above all, with their faith. These are the apostles of my love. My children, apostles of my love, I am teaching you that my Son is not only asking for continuous prayers, but also for works and feelings - that you believe, that you pray, that with your personal prayers you grow in faith, that you grow in love. To love each other is what He asks for - that is the way to eternal life. My children, do not forget that my Son brought the light to this world, and He brought it to those who wanted to see it and receive it. You be those, because this is the light of truth, peace and love. I am leading you in a motherly way to adore my Son; that you love my Son with me; that your thoughts, words and actions may be directed to My Son - that they may be in His name. Then my heart will be fulfilled. Thank you.
