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:

Children of Medjugorje, June 2013 Newsletter
June 14, 2013
Dear Children of Medjugorje, praised be Jesus and Mary!
1. On June 2, 2013, Mirjana
received her monthly apparition at the blue cross, surrounded by a huge
crowd of pilgrims. After the apparition, she conveyed the following
"Dear children! In
this restless time, anew I am calling you to set out after my Son - to
follow him. I know of the pain, suffering and difficulties, but in my
Son you will find rest; in him you will find peace and salvation. My
children, do not forget that my Son redeemed you by his Cross and
enabled you, anew, to be children of God; to be able to, anew, call the
Heavenly Father: 'Father'. To be worthy of the Father, love and forgive
because your Father is love and forgiveness. Pray and fast, because that
is the way to your purification, it is the way of coming to know and
becoming cognizant of the Heavenly Father. When you become cognizant of
the Father, you will comprehend that He is all you need. I, as a
mother, desire my children to be in a community of one single people
where the Word of God is listened to and carried out.* Therefore, my
children, set out after my Son. Be one with him. Be God's children.
Love your shepherds as my Son loved them when he called them to serve
you. Thank you."
* Our Lady said this resolutely and with emphases.
2. June is a month rich in feasts for the Church! There is the celebration of Corpus Christi,
the Sacred Heart, the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and the Holy Trinity!
Contrast these with the "feast" celebrated by the President of the
United States who has again declared the month of June "gay pride
month," and the "feasts" of some French who stormed three different
cathedrals in rebellion against the Catholics who oppose gay marriage
which was legalized there in May. So, it is more important than ever
that we welcome the immense graces that come through our celebrations of
God and His saints. These graces are a light in the middle of the
darkness that is now overtaking so many children, young people and older
people. "He who looks to him will be radiant", says the Psalmist (Ps. 33). And looking to Him simply means adoring Him.
addition to celebrating the graces offered by God during the feasts
this month, we can also prepare our hearts for the anniversary of the
apparitions in Medjugorje by saying the prayer given by the Angel of
Fatima to the 3 little shepherds in 1916 from the bottom of our hearts
as often as we can. The novena celebrating the 32nd Anniversary of the
Apparitions begins on June 15th and ends on the anniversary itself, June 25th.
This prayer dispels so much darkness! It would be a lovely gift of
thanksgiving to offer Mary for her 32 years of apparitions! God alone
is able to dissipate the density of evil that attacks us every day, but
the worshiper powerfully assists God's action by begging for His mercy.
One can always hope for better politicians, but he who can and will
change things is you, today! It is you, it is I, it is us, those who
wish to adore the Living God in spirit and in truth. May the true
worshipers grow in number and in quality, and the face of the world will
Here is the prayer that came to us from heaven at Fatima:
"Most Holy Trinity,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I adore you profoundly. I offer you the
most Precious Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present
in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages,
sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended. And through the
infinite merit of His Most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of
Mary, I beg of you the conversion of poor sinners."
3. Miracle in Buenos Aires! In
1996, when Pope Francis was the auxiliary bishop of Cardinal Quarracino
in Buenos Aires, a remarkable Eucharistic miracle occurred. The
present Pope himself examined the issue and requested that the object of
the miracle be photographed. The results are amazing.
August 18, 1996, at 7 pm, Father Alejandro Pezet was celebrating Mass
in the church that is in the center of the city. He was about to finish
distributing Holy Communion, when a woman came to tell him that she had
found a host that someone had thrown away at the back of the church.
Fr. Alejandro went to take a look and saw the host. It was in poor
condition and soiled. Because he could not consume it, he put it in a
small bowl filled with water and then placed it in the tabernacle of the
chapel of the Blessed Sacrament.
On August 26 he opened the tabernacle, and to his great amazement he saw that the
had become a kind of bloody substance. He informed Mgr Jorge
Bergoglio, who gave instructions to have the host photographed by
professionals. These photographs, taken on September 6th
clearly show that the host, which had become a fragment of bleeding
flesh, had significantly increased in size. For several years, the host
remained in the tabernacle, and the entire matter remained a secret.
Because the host was not undergoing any kind of visible decomposition,
Mgr. Bergoglio decided to have it scientifically analyzed.
October 5, 1999, in the presence of Mgr. Bergoglio's representative,
(who had become Archbishop in the mean time) Dr. Castanon took a sample
of the bloody fragment and sent it to New York to be analyzed. Because
he did not want to influence the results of the examination, he decided
not to tell the team of scientists where the fragment came from.
of the scientists was the famous cardiologist and forensic pathologist,
Dr. Frederic Zugiba. He determined that the analyzed substance was
actual flesh and blood containing human DNA. He stated that: "The
analyzed material is a fragment of the heart muscle which is found in
the wall of the left ventricle, near the valves. This is the muscle
that contracts the heart. We must remember that the left ventricle of
the heart acts as a pump that sends the blood through the entire body.
The heart muscle is in a state of inflammation and contains a large
number of white blood cells. This indicates that the heart was alive at
the time when the sample was taken. I confirm that the heart was
alive, because white blood cells die outside of a living organism. They
need a live organism in order to remain alive themselves. Therefore,
their presence indicates that the heart was alive when the sample was
taken. In fact, these white blood cells had penetrated into the
tissues, which is an even stronger indication that the heart had been
subjected to intense stress, as if its owner had been severely beaten on
Australians, journalist Mike Willesee and attorney Ron Tesoriero,
witnessed the tests. Knowing the origin of the sample, they were taken
aback by Dr. Zugiba's statement. Mike Willesee asked the scientist how
long the white blood cells could have stayed alive if they had come from
human tissue kept in water. Dr. Zugiba told him that they would have
ceased to exist after a few minutes. The journalist then revealed to
the doctor that the substance from which the sample was taken had first
been preserved in ordinary water for one month, and that after three
years, it was preserved in a bowl filled with demineralized water. Only
then was a sample taken to be analyzed. Dr. Zugiba was very
embarrassed by this information because he said that there was no way of
explaining it scientifically.
Dr. Zugiba then asked the following question: "Please
explain the following to me: if this sample comes from a dead person,
how is it that while I was examining it, the cells of the sample were
moving and pulsating? If this heart comes from someone who was alive in
1996, how can it still be alive?"
then did Mike Willesee reveal to Dr. Zugiba that the analyzed sample
came from a consecrated host (white bread with no leavening), which had
mysteriously been transformed into human flesh and blood. Astounded by
this information, Dr. Zugiba said: "How and why could a consecrated
host change its nature and become living human flesh and blood, this
will remain an inexplicable mystery for science - a mystery completely
beyond its competence."
Dr. Ricardo Castanon Gomez arranged for the laboratory reports written
after the Buenos Aires miracle to be compared to the reports that were
written after the Lanciano miracle, again without revealing the origin
of the test samples. The experts who proceeded with this comparison
concluded that the two laboratory reports had analyzed test samples
coming from the same person. They further pointed out that the two
samples revealed an "AB positive" blood type. This blood had the
characteristics of a man who was born and lived in the Middle East.
faith in the extraordinary action of God can give a reasonable answer!
God wants us to be aware that He is truly present in the mystery of the
Eucharist. The Eucharistic miracle of Buenos Aires is an extraordinary
sign, witnessed by science. Through this sign, Jesus wishes to awaken
in us a living faith in His Real Presence in the Eucharist, real, and
not symbolic. It is only with the eyes of faith, and not with our human
eyes, that we can see Him in the form of consecrated bread and wine.
In the Eucharist, Jesus sees us and loves us and wishes to save us.
