Mary, Mother of God

Today we commemorate the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, the title established at the council of Ephesus in 431 AD. Theotokos. Let us unite in prayers of thanksgiving to God for Servant of God, Sr. Marie de Mandat-Grancey who valiantly and generously invested all her heart and effort into finding and preserving Mary's House in Ephesus, Turkey.  It is in the safety of this little home where Mary, Mother of God did live out her final days after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Our Lord.  So much to beg of the Father today through the intercession of Mary as we begin 2019. Dearest Sr. Marie, please pray for us. Amen.

A Short Reflection on A Guiding Star

On the Feast of the Epiphany, it is with great fondness that I remember Fr. Carl Schulte for a very precious gift and memory he has given us all.  The original title for his book on the life of Sister Marie was A Guiding Star!  Fr. Schulte, Erin and I exchanged hundreds of emails with the subject line AGS (A Guiding Star) as we assisted him in 2009 beginning around the Feast of the Annunciation until Christmas of that year as he finished up his book.  Nine months. Then the birth of the book.  Then on the Feast of the Epiphany the book was revealed to some very special people in the Church who all had marvelous things to say, much of which you find on the book jacket.  Timing is everything.

The Tallest Statue of Mary in Turkey?

A Moment With Mary: an Initiative of the Association Mary of Nazareth, reports:

"Cemil Seboy, candidate of the Party for Justice and Development (AKP) in the region of Izmir (Smyrna, Turkey) stated that, if he was elected in the legislative elections of June 7, 2015, he would sponsor, with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the project to build in the Selcuk district the largest statue in the world dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

In statements to the local press, the candidate presented the idea as an attempt to enhance the touristic appeal of the area that is also known for the ruins of ancient Ephesus and the site of Meriem Ana Evi, the "House of the Virgin Mary", discovered in 1891 through the private revelations of the mystic Anne Catherine Emmerich.

The parliamentary candidate’s whim was inspired by the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer of Corcovado, overlooking the bay of Rio de Janeiro. The several projects presented by the candidate at meetings with potential voters also included the construction of a cable car for tourists to access the top of the hill on which the statue of Our Lady would be erected."

The 100th Anniversary! May 31st.

As we approach May 31st, the 100th Anniversary of the day our dear Servant of God, Sister Marie de Mandat-Grancey left this world to be with God, please join us as we honor her memory.  Below please find the Allocution pronounced at the Funeral of Sister Marie by Archbishop Zucchetti.  Please thank God for Sister Marie, without whom we would not have the little piece of heaven on earth called Mary's House.  At every apparition site The Blessed Mother comes to us.  At Mary's House we go to her.  She invites us into her home and heart; she welcomes us and being the perfect Mother she tends to us in the most perfect way.  Sister Marie responded with a generous heart to God's call and because of her we now can visit this tiny jewel of the Church, a haven of peace in the world, where both Muslims and Christians pray side by side in peace as they honor Mary. Truly a cause for hope and joy.  Thank you Sister Marie.  Please pray for us.
Allocution Pronounced on June 1, 1915


Monsignor Zucchetti, Archbishop of Smyrna

At the Funeral of Sister Marie de Mandat-Grancey



My Dear Daughters of Charity,


          In His adorable provisions, it so pleases God to take from us, one after the other, those souls most dear to our love and our veneration. 


It is only a filial complaint directed to His fatherly kindness, by us, who are so saddened by the departure from this world of so many people, whose presence in our midst was a token of His blessings, an appeal to His love and a comforting example of supernatural life.


These departures, for some time now, are succeeding one another quickly in Smyrna:  man and women servants of God, priests, as well as religious, are saying “goodbye” to us after such a great and long service rendered to the Church, to young people, as well as to the ministry of souls and to suffering humanity.


Today, it is the turn of the one that, by your tears, you would like to make live again, in order to see her again in her capacity as the superior of the French Hospital, of her school and of her model sewing workshop – active, energetic, generous, giving of herself and not sparing herself to help everybody, but especially the indigent and the miserable.  An abundantly provided soul with natural and supernatural talents, combining with the nobility of a great French family, the enthusiasm and resources of an inexhaustible heart, the admirable Sister Adele Louise Marie de Mandat-Grancey, during a stay in Smyrna that lasted 30 years, has been among us the type of strong woman depicted in Scripture, the true daughter of charity, providence of the poor, consolation of the afflicted, support of socially outcast and uncomplaining poor families, refuge and savior of young people exposed to worldly danger and seductions.
