About Rosa Mystica

Our Lady of Rosa Mystica House of Prayer exists to bring souls to Jesus through Mary. We think of Rosa Mystica as a haven, a shelter, and an escape, where Our Lady and Our Lord will work on your heart and lift your spirits.

History of Rosa Mystica

Rosa Mystica House of Prayer is committed to a Marian devotion dating back to 1947, in which the Blessed Mother, under the title of Our Lady of Rosa Mystica, or “Mystical Rose,” appeared to the Italian laywoman Pierina Gilli. Approved by the local bishop, the message shared by our Lady is one of healing and restoration through prayer, sacrifice, and penance. Her message holds true for pilgrims of all walks of life, with a special focus for priests and consecrated souls.
