Mother Mary said at Fatima: "My Immaculate Heart will be your refuge and the sure way which will lead you to God." St. Thomas Aquinas said: "The things we love tell us who we are!" With that in mind, I will try to post each day something about Our Blessed Lady, items about the Holy Roman Catholic Church, and public domain Catholic books too! I pray you enjoy my ministry!
Below are two albums of pictures that I created:
1. Our grand daughter Adrianna.
2. Tears of Mary!

[MaryVitamin] After the Resurrection
Mary Vitamin for March 26th
Topic: After the Resurrection
"He left her some twenty years on earth, that we might learn from her to adore Him perfectly."
"How, then, do we act with a friend? Do we always speak to him of the present? Certainly not! We recall past memories, we live them over again together. When we want to pay a compliment to a father and a mother we recall their love, their unwearying devotedness shown us in our infancy. Similarly, Mary during her adoration in the Cenacle reminded Jesus of all that He had done for His Father's glory, all the great sacrifices He had made, and in this way she participated in the Eucharistic grace."
St. Peter Julian Eymard, Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament, 10.
Today I will imitate Our Lady's conversation with Jesus. Just as She did, I will review with Him in conversation one of the holy mysteries of His life. I will choose one event now (birth, public ministry, or Passion) and I will remember to visit with the Lord spiritually while I am busy with my day. I will just lift my mind to these thoughts, even if briefly.
With each conversation with the Lord, I will begin by remembering my Marian vow of unlimited and total consecration to the Immaculate. It is Our lady who teaches me and brings to me Christ.
I give this resolution to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
