What do the Assumption of Mary, St. John the Evangelist, Muslims, and a small, stone house have in common?
SET YOUR DVRs!!!
Watch “The Journey of Sr. Marie de Mandat-Grancey” on EWTN: Monday, December 11, at 6:30 PM EST, and Tuesday, December 12, 2:30 AM EST!
Sister Marie is the French Vincentian nun who discovered, purchased, and restored Mary’s house at Ephesus and preserved it for veneration.
Pope Paul VI, St. John Paul II, and Pope Benedict XVI all came as pilgrims to venerate the house and said Holy Mass inside the small, stone shrine, which is believed to be the site of Mary’s Assumption into Heaven.
Millions of visitors come to Mary’s house, each year, and more than half are Muslims. Christians and Muslims pray side-by-side, at the house, which is why devotees believe that Sister Marie will be a key to Christian/Muslim reconciliation and conversions.
A wonderful book on her life, the mysterious path to finding the house, and the impact of this incredible discovery can be purchased, here.
Sister Marie’s beautiful life story will be broadcast twice, this week!

John 19:26-27 When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple there whom he loved, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son. Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his home.
