ABOUT

VIRGIN MARY'S HOUSE

Virgin Mary House is located on the Bülbül Mountain, 9 km from Selçuk. It is known that John brought Virgin Mary to Ephesus 4 or 6 years after the death of Jesus. In 1891, the Lazarist priests, upon the dream of the German nun A. Katherina Emerich, discovered that the house where the Virgin Mary spent her last days was at the end of this research. This event is a new invention in the world of Christianity and shed light on the world of religion. This structure was cross-planned then restored. The house is considered sacred by Muslims, Pope VI. After Paul's visit in 1967, the rites are held on the 15th day of August every year, and these rituals attract great attention.

PAPA’NIN MESAJI

Müslümanların da sevdiği ve yücelttiği Aziz Meryem’in varlığıyla kutsallık kazanan Efes’ten, toplumlar arası barış için Rab’be özel bir dua yükseltelim. Kıtalar arası doğal bir köprü oluşturan Anadolu’nun bu noktasından, Hıristiyanların, Yahudilerin ve Müslümanların "kutsal" saydıkları İbrahim’in, İshak’ın ve Yakub’un topraklarında esenlik ve barış için birlikte yalvarıyoruz. Kutsal sayılan bu toprağın kaderi tüm uluslar için hayırlı olacak bir topluma beşik olmaktı.

Benedictus XVI / 29 Kasım 2006, Ephesus
