Our Lady of Arabia:

"The Holy Father, Pope Pius XII, himself gave a grand lead to this devotion to Our Lady of Arabia, and on 17th December 1949, on the eve of the Great Jubilee Year, in the Vatican Palace, he personally blessed the new Statue of Our Lady of Arabia, and consented to be photographed in prayer before it.

The Statue was received in Kuwait and formally enthroned on 6th January 1950, amidst triumphal rejoicing at her Shrine in Ahmadi."







Saint Vartan Armenian Church:





I think this is a memorial of the Armenian Genocide:

Shrine of Our Lady Of Mantara:

It is said that virgin marry waited for her son in a cave on the top of a hill, as jesus went to preach in the city of Sidon. The Shrine is directly built over the cave. There is also a basilica there (still under construction). This shrine is located in South Lebanon.
