THREE POPES VISITED MARY'S HOUSE
Paul VI kept his word and after a triumphal entry to Istanbul he came to pay his respects to Virgin Mary in Ephesus, on 26th July 1967. He entered the shrine escorted by the crowd. He prayed for a long time in front of the altar and he himself lit the sculpted lamp he had brought. In memory of Sister Marie de Mandat-Grancey, he gave the superior of the sisters of Charity who live there a gold chalice for their oratory. Pope John Paul II also came to Virgin Mary on 30th November 1979, after an official visit to Ankara.
Although the pilgrimage of these two Popes does not constitute official recognition of Virgin Mary House as the place where Mary lived and died, they did at least make known to the whole world, through press and television, the existence of the shrine. Lastly Pope Benedictus XVI visit Turkey in November 2006. Turkey welcomed Pope Benedict with a great honor.
