This is the only place, I know, that both Christians and Muslims pray together. Mary is highly honored in Islam. Many claim to be physically healed by praying and the waters.
After an amazing time of walking the ancient runes of Ephesus and the runes of St. John's Basicilca, we had a relaxing lunch in the ballroom of a resort hotel. Then we drove up a mountain hillside to a place known as Mary's House. It is thought to be the last home of Mary, the mother of Jesus. I had never heard of this history or legend. It is a fascinating and mystic tale of a German woman "seeing" a vision of this place. Since then the home has been reconstructed and blessed by Pope John Paul II.
