Miracle of the Holy House of the Virgin of Loreto – Tiepolo

The Holy House of Nazareth of Our Lady, where the annunciation and the incarnation took place, being taken by angels from Palestine to Dalmatia. Artwork by G. B. Tiepolo.

"Tradition tells us that on May 10, 1291, the Holy House of Nazareth was raised from its foundations in Nazareth and transported by Angels across the Mediterranean from Palestine to Dalmatia to the small town of Tersatto. The pastor of the Church of St. George, at Tersatto, Alexander Georgevich, was puzzled by the sudden presence of what looked like a tiny church and prayed for enlightenment. His prayers were answered when the Blessed Virgin appeared to him in sleep and told him that this was indeed the Holy House of Nazareth where the Annunciation took place and it was brought here through the power of God."
