This Is Holy Ground: Loretto Comes To Be Through the Creative Spirit of God

Posted on April 5, 2020, by Loretto Community

Shown here is Mary’s Lake on the grounds of Loretto Motherhouse House. The lake took its name from the statue of Mary standing on a small island in the lake’s interior.

From the Kentucky frontier in 1812 to the present, Loretto shares in that mysterious gift of the Holy Spirit, which brought Loretto into being and keeps it alive today. The Holy Ground of Loretto is a place of life-giving rootedness in something larger than ourselves. It is something deep enough to keep us anchored. It gives us clarity and confidence in a landscape of shifting values. It is a place where God speaks, and we listen. It is a place where faith can move mountains. Loretto’s Holy Ground requires of us an open spirit and a sensitive, mindful attention to one another. It requires a loving heart.
