Notes: Our Lady of Sorrowswe call to mind the pain endured both by Christ on the Cross and Mary, as she watched her Son be crucified.

Where is the Our Lady of Loreto house originally from? 
Catholic tradition holds that the Holy House arrived suddenly in Loreto, Italy on December 10, 1294 after a miraculous rescue from the Holy Land as the Crusaders were driven out of Palestine at the end of the 13th century. The shrine of Our Lady of Loreto is located on the Adriatic coast of Italy, three hours from Rome. It is the third largest shrine to Mary in Europe, next to Lourdes and Fatima. The ministry of the shrine is the hospitality shown to pilgrims especially through the sacrament of penance.

The tradition of the shrine at Loreto goes back to the year 1291. As the last of the crusaders returned to Western Europe they brought with them a number of relics, objects of devotion and remembrances of holy shrines. It happened that the dwelling of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the house which both tradition and Christian devotion had maintained as the site of the appearance of the archangel Gabriel and therefore the Incarnation of our Savior, was moved from Nazareth to Christian Europe.
