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

CMMB: Your Weekly Reflection in Prayer
“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord; there are different workings but the same God Who produces all of them in everyone.”
1 Corinthians 12:4-6
January 20, 2013 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
On the third Monday of January, all fifty states now celebrate in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King had a dream, and spoke of that dream in Washington, D.C. in August 1963, almost fifty years ago. He dreamt that all children could live together in peace, and not be judged by the color of their skin. He dreamt that justice and righteousness would pour down from the heavens.
It is important for us to not only reflect on the dream and vision of Dr. King, but to work and pray like him (also like the African child below) that peace and justice, gentleness and compassion, be more present and shining in our world in this New Year.
Prayer of an African Child Lord God, what kind of world is this that the adult people are going to leave for us children? There is fighting everywhere. You are the only one Who can help us, Lord. Give us a new world in which we can be happy, in which we can have friends and work together for a good future. A world in which there will not be any cruel people who seek to destroy us and our world in so many ways. Amen
