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:

Mary TV Daily Reflection 5/9/2013
(c)Mary TV 2013 "I desire to bring you all to heaven unto God."

(Thursday of the Sixth Week of Easter in some Dioceses)
Dear Family of Mary!
Our Lady has often
spoken to us of heaven. She wants us to desire heaven. She wants us to
realize that heaven is real, and it is our true home. She asks us to
live with our eyes on heaven, not on our temporal earthly reality.
When I think of the
Ascension, I think of heaven. Jesus ascended into heaven in the presence
of the Apostles and Disciples. His Mother Mary was among them. How that
ascension must have pulled at her heart! Jesus was going back to the
Father, to His heavenly home. She knew she would follow one day, but not
yet. And so her heart must have been pulled in two. Only the Holy
Spirit could have helped her to remain on earth, her love was so strong.
And now she is trying
to communicate to us the same desire for heaven and for Jesus that she
had at that moment, and has to this day. She wants us to identify with
heaven as our true and only home. Listen to this message she gave in
"Dear children! Again today I call
you to consecrate your life to me with love, so I am able to guide you
with love. I love you, dear children, with a special love and I desire
to bring you all to Heaven unto God. I want you to realize that this
life lasts briefly compared to the one in Heaven. Therefore, dear
children, decide again today for God. Only that way will I be able to
show how much you are dear to me and how much I desire all to be saved
and to be with me in Heaven. Thank you for having responded to my call."
(November 27, 1986)
Mother Mary wants to
bring us all home. She has come for her children. She comes to shake us
out of our earthly stupor, and get our eyes on our true home. She wants
us to gaze upward, into the heavens where Jesus ascended, and to long
for Him and for home! Heaven is our true home. In another message she
children! Do not forget that you are here on earth on the way to
eternity and that your home is in Heaven. That is why, little children,
be open to God's love and leave egoism and sin. May your joy be only in
discovering God in daily prayer. That is why, make good use of this time
and pray, pray, pray; and God is near to you in prayer and through
prayer. Thank you for having responded to my call." (July 25, 2000)
Clearly, she is
calling us to long for home, and to live this life as a preparation for
that life. On this Ascension, may we contemplate our Savior, rising on
the clouds into heaven. Jesus has gone back to the Father, to prepare a
place for us. Mother Mary has joined Him there, and she is now coming
back to us to lead us there. If we live her messages, she will be able
to lead us forward towards eternity in heaven with our God.
As Denis says every day on our Rosary, "Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!!!"
