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, OUR MOTHER

A second Sistine Chapel in Rome? The hidden treasures of St. Mary Major
http://en.romereports.com On the right hand side of Rome's Basilica of St. Mary Major, there's a true treasure, that's often described as another Sistine Chapel. It dates back to the 16th century when for years, the original paintings were covered. Then in 1870, Pius IX ordered the frescoes to be covered with lighter colors. It's a practice that experts say was quite common during that time period.
