Friends of the Rosary:

As our journey of conversion continues and we prepare to celebrate the nativity of Christ, on this Second Sunday of Advent we also celebrate the Memorial of Our Lady of Loreto.

The title of Our Lady of Loreto refers to the holy little house in Nazareth in which Mary was born and took place the Annunciation — the Incarnation when the Word became Flesh.

Tradition says that a band of angels took the house from the Holy Land and transported it first to Tersato, Dalmatia in 1291, then to Recanati, Italy in 1294, and finally in the 14th century to Loreto, in the Adriatic Sea coast of Italy, where the Shrine of Loreto has been for centuries.

The large basilica is one of the most famous shrines of Our Lady in Europe. One of the ancient statues of “Black Madonnas” is found here.

Ave Maria!
Jesus, I Trust In You!
Our Lady of Loreto, Pray for Us!

To Jesus through Mary!
