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!

CMMB: Your Weekly Reflection in Prayer 5/19/2013
“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit; there are different forms of service but the same Lord.”
1 Corinthians 12:4-5
May 19, 2013 Pentecost Sunday
one of my favorite passages from the Second Vatican Council, we read
that, “We must hold that the Holy Spirit offers to all the possibility
of being made partners, in a way known to God, in the paschal mystery”
(Church in the Modern World, No. 22). Indeed, God’s Spirit is offered
not only to Christians or Catholics, but to each and every human being.
The Spirit Who moved over the face of the earth at creation, according
to the Book of Genesis, the Spirit Who came with power upon the apostles
at Pentecost, is trying to break into the hearts of each and every
While it is important for us to be open to the Spirit Who inspires and
gives His gifts generously to us, we should also be attentive to, watch
for, learn from, and thank God for His Spirit which is offered to each
and every human being.
God, Who by the mystery of today’s feast sanctify the whole Church in
every people and nation, pour out the gifts of the Holy Spirit across
the face of the earth, and with the divine grace that was at work when
the Gospel was first proclaimed, fill now once more the hearts of
believers. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
