Loreto and the Holy House by Rev. G.E. Phillips is the most decisive work in English defending the authenticity of this most hallowed shrine in all Christendom.
Our Ladys Holy House at Nazareth was taken by angels to Dalmatia (Croatia) in 1291 to prevent its desecration by the infidels. Three years later it took flight again to rest in Loreto, Italy, where it remains. Rev. Phillips provides the facts, and excitement behind the story. Many cures, apparitions, and miraculous conversions have happened within the limestone walls of the Santa Casa.
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 6 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."
