Happy Birthday, Blessed Virgin Mary

September 8, 2017   
  
     September 8th is the Blessed Virgin Mary's birthday.  She was born in a house in Nazareth, where some fifteen years later the Annunciation took place and she was told by the Angel Gabriel "The Lord is with thee."(Luke 1:28) Many centuries later, in 1291 of the Holy Wars, to prevent the Muslims from destroying the home, Mary's Holy House was mysteriously "translated" -- moved overnight! -- first to Dalmatia, then to Italy, eventually remaining in Loreto, where anyone can see it and pray in it. I have been there at least three times that I can remember, as it is often on the pilgrimage path to Padre Pio, on the Adriatic side of Italy.
     Atheists and agnostics think true believers are credulous to consider this story as factual.  On the website below you will find the scientific evidence, such as how the bricks of the Loreto house match the foundation of the Holy House still in Nazareth, that simply cannot be denied.  The AAs (agnostics and atheists) stress in their arguments that there is some other way things could have happened.  The trouble is they can never produce these other ways (as in The Shroud).
     Please read about the incredible rescue in the link below, detailing how Mary's Holy House traveled to Loreto and what the witnesses saw. Especially read the paragraphs midway down, "Science Confirms: Angels Took the House of Our Lady of Nazareth to Loreto." Here is a small excerpt:    
     "However, the Annunciation took place in Nazareth, in the Holy Land, where the foundations of the Holy House remain to this day. When compared with the dimensions and characteristics of the Loreto House, they match perfectly: but the similarities and concordances do not end there.
     "How did the Holy House take off, so to speak, from its foundations and reappear about 2000 miles away where it remains intact to this day?"
     Bear in mind that an angel appeared to Mary at the Annunciation.  Angels appeared to the shepherds in the fields when Mary gave birth to Christ the Lord.  Angels were waiting for her when she arrived in Heaven at her Assumption.
     As I  read somewhere (it may have been the French philosopher, Montaigne): all that you can imagine is not all that there is...

  1. Hi Jeanette, I discovered your site today, and, I thank you for the wonderful depth and thoughtfulness of its contents. Slowly, over time, I'll get my notebook and pen, and read every page. I couldn't locate your book, or Father Martin's book, but, I'll keep trying.
    I'm working on a bibliography of books written about Padre Pio, in English, and I'd estimate my list at present to be between 75 to 100. I felt called to do it because I've been reading alot about dear Padre Pio.
    Bless your heart, Vee

  2. Dear Vee, thank you for your encouraging comments.I lost my loving sister, who helped me with my work so much, and I've been in the hospital a number of times followed by a long rehab in a nursing home.So..have fallen behind, but, God willing, I hope to concentrate on completing my projects now and during next year. Good luck with your Padre Pio bibliography--it will be good for all Padre Pio devotees. Did you see my Pio Christmas book on Amazon (Padre Pio's Christmases)?
    Pace e bene, Jeanette
