Dedication

MediaArk.com is Dedicated to Our Lady of Loreto

Loreto is the site of the House of Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ. The birthplace of Mary was preserved from destruction by miraculously being transported from Ephesus to Loreto.

The house is a sanctuary, a form of Ark, which preserves the contents contained within. In dedicating this site to Our Lady of Loreto, who literally was the first holy Ark, this website is being entrusted to her care.

Catholic and Christian websites, video channels, and even ordinary businesses with a Christian ethos, often come under the ire, displeasure and even socio-political hostility of our current secular, atheistic culture. We should not be surprised by this hostility, as Christ Himself warned us that we would be hated for His name’s sake. Under threats and/or intimidation, such media/sites have had to move or change services/locations. When threatened with destruction, the ‘House of Our Lady of Loretto’, was miraculously moved to a new location. Hence, who better to look after this ‘ark’ than our Lady of Loretto!

Background: the House of Our Lady of Loretto:
The notion of being able to move an inanimate, and quite ordinary object such as a brick building, through space (time!), may at first glance seem somewhat unbelievable. However, such notions are supported by biblical references (RSV below), and not necessarily meant to be considered in a metaphorical sense alone. While unbelievers would never consider it possible, we should remember what Scripture says: “…but with God, all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).

Matthew 21:21
“Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and never doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea’, it will be done.

Mark 11:23
“Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea’, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him”.

Luke 17:6
And the Lord said, “If you had faith as a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this sycamine tree, ‘Be rooted up, and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.

1 Corinthians 13;2
And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
