Maastricht, Medieval walls, Basilica of Our Lady, St. Servatius, Netherlands
It was toward the end of May in a sunny warm day, with many people outdoor, enjoying the warmth of the sun. Near the statue of a donkey, at the place where the Ezelmarkt (Donkey Market) used to be, we’re reminded to remember those donkeys that were so helpful in the past for transport. Earlier in the day I spent a good amount of time at De Onze-Lieve-Vrouwebasiliek (The Basilica of Our Lady), reflecting on my time together with Mary there. From there I walked to ‘het Vrijthof’ square which has attracted people since Medieval times when pilgrims came to see the grave of Saint Servatius. These days, Vrijthof is known for its outdoor cafés and events. From there I walked to Medieval City-Wall dating from 1229, listening to Harp and Hang, a musical instrument in the idiophone class created by Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer in Bern, Switzerland. The body of water by which I was sitting is called Jeker that feeds into Maas River. Then I walked to Sint Hilariusstraat to enjoy my geranium , pansis petunia flowers. I think the street was named after Pope Hilarius who was the bishop of Rome from 461 to February 28, 468. There I met a lady reading a book about a guy who moved from Washington DC to Nigeria and she told me how the story evolves around of how young kids could easily be indoctrinated and brainwashed to commit horrible acts of terrors. As the rain started I walked back to one of the cafe by De Onze-Lieve-Vrouwebasiliek, under umbrella and great glass of Merlot

Maastricht, a university city on the southern tip of the Netherlands, is distinguished by its medieval-era architecture and vibrant cultural scene. In its cobbled old town, is the Gothic-style church Sint Janskerk, and the Romanesque Basilica of St. Servatius houses a significant collection of religious art. On the banks of the Maas River, bisecting the city, lies futuristic-looking Bonnefanten art museum.

Netherlands Limburg Maastricht Basilica of Our Lady Basiliek van Onze-Lieve-Vrouwe
The Roman catholic Basilica of Our Lady (in Dutch: Onze-Lieve-Vrouwebasiliek, in Limburgish (Maastrichtian variant): Slevrouwe) is a Romanesque basilica in Maastricht, The Netherlands, dedicated to Our Lady of the Assumption. The church is often referred to as the Star of the Sea, after the church's main devotion, Our Lady, Star of the Sea. The church is dependent of the Diocese of Roermond and was made a Basilica Minor in 1933.
The present-day church is not the first church that was built on this site. Since no archeological research has ever been carried out inside the present building, nothing certain can be said about this. The church's site, inside the Roman castrum and adjacent to a religious shrine dedicated to the god Jupiter, suggests that the site was once occupied by a Roman temple. It is not unlikely that the town's first church was built here and that this church in the 4th century became the cathedral of the diocese of Tongeren-Maastricht. It is clear that at one point the church of Saint Servatius became the main church in Maastricht, but throughout the Middle Ages the two churches' chapters remained rivals.
The present church is largely Romanesque. Blocks of stone from the ancient Roman walls were re-used for the westwork which dates from shortly after 1000 AD. Most of the church was built in the course of the 12th century, including the late 12th century East choir with its two- storey ambulatory with richly decorated capitals.
In the 14th century a parish church was built next to the main church so the main building could be reserved for the chapter's religious duties. Of this parish church, dedicated to Saint Nicolas, nothing remains as it was demolished in 1837. In the 15th century the present Star of the Sea chapel was added and a century later the Romanesque cloisters were replaced by the present late Gothic cloisters.
After the incorporation of Maastricht in the French First Republic in 1794, the cities religious chapters were dissolved and the church of Our Lady was used for all kinds of purposes by the military garrison. Until 1837 the church remained a blacksmith shop. Many of the church treasures were lost during this period, including a silver reliquary cross with a large particle of the True Cross (now in the Vatican Museums).
From 1887-1917 the church was thoroughly restored by the well-known Dutch architect Pierre Cuypers who basically removed everything that did not fit his view of the ideal Romanesque church.

Basilica of Our Lady, Maastricht, Netherlands
This sacred site is a destination for many pilgrims today as well as in the past for those who wish to venerate Mother Mary. She is known here as Our Lady of Maastricht or the Star of the Sea where 1700 lives were miraculously saved during a shipwreck. Possibly sitting on an ancient site of a Roman temple, this church as been a place of Christian worship for a thousand years. This video shows the entrance way in front of the statue where the public can visit, light a candle and pray. The actual statue and altar are situated in a room farther back that is not accessible by the public. Nevertheless, the energy in this room was quite palpable and one of the few sacred sites I've visited where the feeling of energy was quite strong.
