A Refuge for Mary

We went by bus from the port city of Kusadasi (KOOSH-ah-dahss) to Ephesus, through the mountains of Turkey, and briefly visited the place where they say the Apostle John took Mary to abide after the death of her Son; evidently to protect her from the Romans. This little stone house, they say, is where she lived out her days. Also notice the stone wall heavily salted with many prayers inserted between the stones; very similar to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. Afterward, we continued our bus trip toward Ephesus, about which I have much more to share.
