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!

The Immaculate Conception
December 7, 2012
Dear Family of Mary!
Tomorrow is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary! Since I do not usually write reflections on the weekend, I would like to take this opportunity to honor Mary, our Mother, the Immaculate Conception. She is more wonderful than we could ever imagine. She is more pure, holy, humble, powerful and loving than we could ever take in. And because of her humility, her wonder is mostly hidden from view. She remains the "lowly handmaiden" of the Father.
But if we quiet ourselves enough, and ponder the wonders that God has done through the Blessed Virgin Mary, we will begin to glimpse that hidden glory that is Mary. On this feast day, may we take time to quiet ourselves and behold our mother, as Jesus told us to do from the Cross. If we contemplate Mary, she will fill us with Jesus.
