House of the Virgin Mary in Ephesus, Turkey: Photo Gallery

The House of the Virgin Mary at Ephesus in Turkey was a thought-provoking find. Is it really the house where Mary, Jesus’ mother lived? According to a nun and visionary, Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, it is. And there were plenty of pilgrims who knelt on the floor of the house even during the short time that we were there, but who knows? The mere idea that Mary lived in this house was enough to inspire reverence. Both the Muslims and Catholics hold Mary up with a lot of reverence so this was one Christian tourist destination in Turkey that was fairly well maintained.
