Sr. Marie Basic Q & A!

Did you know that
Mary’s 21st Century Peace Plan
includes a nun from the 20th century?

Find out why with six important Q’s and A’s

Question #1: Where did Mary, Mother of Jesus, go after the crucifixion and resurrection of her Son, Jesus?
Answer: To Ephesus, Turkey along with St. John, Mary Magdalene and many other Christians escaping persecution in Jerusalem.

Question #2: Whatever happened to Mary’s House?
Answer: The story of Sister Marie deMandat-Grancey, D.C. (1837-1914), the Foundress of Mary’s House, will tell us!

Sr. Marie was a source of inspiration for the expedition to find and verify Mary’s House as revealed by the mystic Anne Catherine Emmerich. When it was found she immediately secured the entire mountain to keep this place holy for all ages to come.

Question #3: But why is this house so important?
Answer : Well there is the abundantly obvious reason that we’re talking about the supremely holy ground upon which Our Blessed Lady walked, prayed, and from which she was eventually Assumed into heaven. But there another reason! One relevant to our post 9/11 times!

Question #4: Where is the only place on earth where Muslims, Christians, and Orthodox pray peacefully side by side and honor Mary?
Answer: You guessed it! Mary’s House at Ephesus; the home of a Jewish mother!

Are you beginning to see Mary’s awesome 21st century peace plan!

Many Popes see it…
Pope Benedict XIV, Pope Leo XIII, Pope Pius XV, Pope Pius X, Pope Benedict XV, Pope Pius XII, Pope John XXII, Pope Paul VI, Pope John Paul II and our Pope Benedict XVI. They have visited Mary’s House and many have offered Holy Mass there. Pope Paul the VI even dedicated a Chalice in honor of Sr. Marie at his Mass the on July 26, 1967.

Many people from our time are beginning to see it!...
Sr. Marie has given us a singular haven of peace so desperately needed in this world where we may pray together with pilgrims from diverse religious backgrounds and all become God’s children united by Our Mother Mary. To many people in these times Sr. Marie has become a patron to invoke when feeling frightened by religious violence.

Question #5 What’s in it for you?
Answer: "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God" (Matthew 5:9). Good answer, right? Need more? ... OK ….There are dozens of accounts of prayers answered through the intercession of Sr. Marie. Physical healings, emotional healings, spiritual healings…the list is beautiful and inspiring. Ask her. Many people tell stories of how she’s listening and answering.

Final Crucial Question! : Will you come to Mary’s House? Be a pilgrim in spirit! Unite in prayer with Sr. Marie in the Heart of Mary, Mary’s House. Join us as we pray for peace!

Sr. Marie has opened the door and will show us the way.

Come in! Mary and Sr. Marie are waiting for you!
