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

Nigeria: Medical Help for Persecuted Christians
New Opportunity to Help Persecuted Christians in Nigeria
The ruthless attacks on Christians in northern Nigeria continue regularly. Radical Muslims, seeking to establish a purely Muslim state, bomb our brothers' and sisters' churches and attack them in their homes and on the streets with guns and machetes. In response, The Voice of the Martyrs has established a one-of-a-kind medical clinic to help believers who have lost limbs in the attacks.
In some attacks, Muslim rioters slashed victims' arms and legs, often severing a limb. In the August 2011 attack in Jos, Muslim radicals cut off one woman's leg. Other Christians have lost limbs in bombings. Believers such as these will be the first to receive the blessing of a free custom prosthetic at VOM's new clinic.
