Loreto & The Holy House

SKU: 8129  |  ISBN: 9781930278493

This definitive study of the history of the Holy House of Loreto is the most decisive work in the English language defending the authenticity of this most hallowed shrine in all Christendom.

Lifted from its foundation by invisible hands, Our Lady's holy house at Nazareth was transported by angels to the Roman province of Dalmatia (present-day Croatia) in 1291 to prevent its desecration by the Mohammedans. Three years later it took flight coming to rest in Loreto, Italy, where it has stood until this day.

Fr. Phillips provides all the facts, and all the excitement behind the story.

Countless cures and miraculous conversions have happened within the limestone walls of the Santa Casa. How could it be otherwise? Approximately one hundred saints and beati have made a pilgrimage to this blessed sanctuary. This is the holiest place on earth.

Encompassed now for six centuries by a magnificent basilica, in this unpretentious little cottage occurred the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Annunciation of the angel Gabriel to the same humble "handmaid of the Lord" and the Incarnation of the Son of God. Hic Verbum Caro Factum Est Et Habitavit In Nobis reads the inscription etched in gold above the chapel altar: "Here the Word was Made Flesh and Dwelt Among Us."
