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!

Mary Vitamin for November 23rd
Topic: Mary's tranquility during the Loss of Jesus in t
"You must overcome everything by humility and simplicity after having closely examined the thing, it seems to me that all wisdom is enclosed in these two virtues. Once you have entered into the true practice of them, you are no longer subject to inconstancy but, you enjoy such peace and tranquility nothing can disturb you."
The Spiritual Direction of Saint Claude de la Colombiere, (Ignatius Press) 81.
I will let Our Lady lead me through the dark times as though She is leading me through the streets of Jerusalem looking for Jesus. I will pray for her tranquility during the joyful mysteries of the Rosary. If I can imitate her peace of soul, I will know that I am practicing humility. I will not be leaning on myself but abandoned to the Will of God.
"The characteristic elements of M.I.M. spirituality are:
Quintessentially Marian ('marianita'), because rooted in total consecration to and total possession by the Immaculate to be her 'docile instrument', and still more to be her 'property and possession'" (SK 1160).”
Marian Seraphic Pathways, Statues Article 6
I give this resolution to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
