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] Pray to St. Joseph
Mary Vitamin for October 14th
St. Teresa of Avila - Oct 15
Topic: Jesus, Mary and Joseph
St. Teresa of Avila
"[W]hen the Lord left me in the trials of soul** I prayed very much [to St. Joseph] as I did to Our Lady."
The Book of Her Life, (ICS Publications: 1987), 256.
St. Alphonsus di Liguori
"Among all the ejaculations and prayers, the invocation of the holy names of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph should have the first place. All that we love and desire and hope to possess is summed up in these beautiful names. The holy name of Jesus fills us with consolation, for when we invoke Him who bears it we find comfort in all our troubles. … With the holy name of Jesus we must unite the beautiful name of Mary. The name of Mary, like that of Jesus, is a name from Heaven above, and it is so powerful that all Hell trembles when it is pronounced. …Finally, it has always been the laudable practice of devout Christians to unite with the names of Our Lord and his holy Mother the beautiful name of St. Joseph. If the King of Heaven and earth conferred on him the honor of being the foster father of His Beloved Son and the protector of the holy and Immaculate Mother, surely it behooves us to honor him and invoke his powerful intersession."
