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

From Opus Bono Sacerdotii: Father Bill is dying
Opus Bono Sacerdotii
Work for the Good of the Priesthood
Please read below and please pray for Father Bill!
"My Dear Joe, I'm writing to let you know that I can no longer talk to you or Pete on the phone. My condition has weakened. The staff here at the manor are wonderful. I'm blessed to be able to offer daily Mass when I am able and also to counsel patients as well as administer the Sacrament of the Sick and Penance when needed. However, I am now fighting aspirating pneumonia and I have also developed a problem with swallowing that is permanent. My foods need to be pureed. Also, my overall condition has worsened and I've lost a lot of weight. My breathing is more labored. I would appreciate your continued prayers as I prepare to leave this world soon. Please be assured that you are in my heart and my prayers as are all who share in this ministry. I ask only that you would continue your good works! With much love and gratitude for all you do for us priests, Fr. Bill"
