“I went to Loreto with a simple faith,
believing what I still believe,
even more so after having seen.
Now I no longer have any doubts.
If you ask me why I believe it, it is because everyone believes it in Rome—
cautious and skeptical as they are in many other things.
I believe it, as I believe that there is a planet called Neptune,
or that chloroform destroys the sense of pain.
I have no prior difficulties on this point.”i went to loreto - bl john henry newman - 10 dec 2017

“It was thought that St Maximilian Kolbe never visited Loreto.
Our Lady, however, always manages to bring to what was her hom, while on earth,
those who revere and venerate her in a special way.
It comes as no surprise, then, to learn from the Mass register of the Basilica,
that he participated in a Mass along with thirty priests from Yugoslavia on 13 July 1919.
The following day, the feast of the Franciscan theologian St Bonaventure,
he celebrated Mass within the Holy house itself.
And so another name, a modem day Saint, has been added to the list of Saints
and holy persons who have visited the shrine of Loreto.
Undoubtedly there will be many more as time goes on, paying their respects
and drawing inspiration from the holiest House in this world. ”

Blessed Cardinal Henry John Newman – written in 1848 and 1884
