Seljuk, Turkey

Mary, mother of Jesus, was immaculately conceived on December 8. Nine months later, she was born: September 8. After the crucifixion, she was looked after by John at this house near Ephesus in Asia Minor, today's Turkey. It has become a pilgrimage site where you can tie a piece of cloth to the wall and ask that your prayer be answered. [2007]
