Virgin Marry House

The House of the Virgin Mary is a Catholic and Muslim shrine located on Mt. Koressos in the vicinity of Ephesus, 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) from Selçuk in Turkey.

 

The house was discovered in the 19th century by following the descriptions in the reported visions of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich(1774–1824), a Roman Catholic nun and visionary, which were published as a book by Clemens Brentano after her death. The Catholic Church has never pronounced in favour or against the authentic city of the house, but nevertheless maintains a steady flow of pilgrimage since its discovery. Anne Catherine Emmerich was Beatified by Pope John Paul II on October 3, 2004.

 

Catholic pilgrims visit the house based on the belief that Mary,the mother of Jesus, was taken to this stone house by Saint John and lived there until her Assumption (according to Catholic doctrine) or Dormition (according to Orthodox belief).

 

The shrine has merited several papal Apostolic Blessings andvisits from several popes, the earliest pilgrimage coming from Pope Leo XIII in1896, and the most recent in 2006 by Pope Benedict XVI.
