Maghdouché is a beautiful southern town in Lebanon. The name “Maghdouché” is Syriac for “crop collectors” and Hebrew for “Kadish” which means “holy.” It is famous for housing a shrine which is known as Our Lady of Mantara or Our Lady of Awaiting. In fact, it is believed that the cave below the sculpture is where the Virgin Mary was waiting for Jesus when they were in Sidon. Check out Maghdouché as seen from above!
