House Of The Virgin Mary: A Retreating House
If we were asked to tell the most important names in Christian world, one of the first names comes to mind would be Saint Mary. I mean, she is the mother of Jesus, right? She has a free pass for life.
In Turkey, near ancient Ephesus city there is a special house. On the top of Mount Aladag, stand the House of Virgin Mary. A tiny stone house is known as where Mary lived from 37 A.D. until her death in 48 A.D and spent her last days after Christ’s Ascension to Heaven. It is the retreat house of Saint Mary, that is now a place of pilgrimage. People are wishing wealth, health and their desires on the wishing wall and discovering the rooms where Mother Mary slept and ate.
The house was visited by the Popes Leo XIII, Pope John XXIII, Pope Paul VI, Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI; so the validity of the place is proven.
