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] Holy Thursday
Mary Vitamin for March 20th
Topic: Holy Thursday
"St. Bonaventure, contemplating Mary on that night [the night before Good Friday], says: 'Thou didst spend it without sleep, and whilst others slept thou didst remain watching.'
St. Alphonsus di Liguori, The Glories of Mary, 439.
St. Bonaventure continues:
"In the morning the disciples of Jesus Christ came to this afflicted mother, the one to bring her one account, the other another; but all were tidings of sorrow verifying in her the prophecy of Jeremias:
'Weeping, she hath wept in the night and her tears are on her cheeks; there is none to comfort her of all them that were dear to her."
St. Alphonsus di Liguori, The Glories of Mary, 439
One attempt at virtue, for Our Lady's sake, will bring Her relief in Her sufferings and comfort to Her sorrowing Heart.
If I live out my vow, always endeavoring to give myself as a docile instrument of the Blessed Virgin Mary, I will give Our Lady comfort in Her sorrow. If I explain and give the Immaculate to others, I bring Her more companions during Her grief.
I give this resolution to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
