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] first virtue
Mary Vitamin for November 10th
Topic: The First Virtue
St. John Eudes
"[The Blessed Virgin Mary] was so humble that she regarded and treated herself as the least of creatures. She told St. Mechtilde that the first virtue she had practiced was humility."
The Wondrous Childhood of the Most Holy Mother of God, (PCP Publications), 24
St. Maximilian gives many concrete examples of how to practice humility during the day in imitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Today, I will consider those around me as superior to myself in imitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
St. Maximilian Kolbe
