Saint Mary, Our Lady of Lebanon (Patroness of Lebanon) (Feast Date: May 7)
Extract from Our Lady of Lebanon
: “Lebanon has a special devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of Jesus. While she was living, she visited there with her Son! There is a sanctuary in the south of Lebanon dedicated to the Virgin of Mantara, a place where Mary stayed awaiting her Son, when Jesus went to Tyre and Sidon. Jesus Christ visited Tyre and performed a miracle for the Syro-Phoenician woman’s daughter, as noted in Matthew 15:21-28 and Mark 7:24-30. He then went by way of Sidon on to the Sea of Galilee (Mark 7:31). The Gospel of John 2:1-12 describes Jesus performing his first miracle, when he turned water into wine at the request of his mother Mary at the wedding feast of Cana in Galilee. The Cana southwest of Tyre in Lebanon today was located in the region of Galilee at the time of Jesus.”
