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

faithful pray-ers around the world will end a season of 101 days of
prayer following the Global Day of Prayer (GDOP) 10-1-90 strategy.
July 2000, South African business man, Graham Power, had a vision to
call Christians from all denominations in Cape Town for a Day of
Repentance and Prayer and to challenge others across Southern Africa to
do the same. Two years later through another vision, this challenge was
to be given to the rest of Africa and around the world. In 2004, 56
nations in Africa participated in the first ever continental Day of
Repentance and Prayer for Africa. The flame of prayer was burning in
Through the International
Prayer Council the call went out to the nations of the world to
participate in the Global Day of Prayer process. On
Pentecost Sunday 2009 a miracle happened when the GDOP expanded to 220
countries in the world. Together with the 10 Days leading up to and the
90 Days of Blessing following the GDOP, there was a sense that the call
to unity and repentance was deepening. This lay the foundation for God
to fill the nations with His glory as His children from around the world
cried out to him in unity.
2010 began a new season
focusing on increasing the number of gatherings on Pentecost Sunday in
smaller settings, such as local churches, family homes and businesses
instead of stadiums and assembly halls. As in the first
Pentecost, transformed Christians transform their communities as they
offer themselves to God as instruments through which their prayers can
be answered. The Global Day of Prayer anticipates the forming or
furthering of local alliances among pastors, churches, missions and
business leaders, to bring practical, transformational blessing to their
communities. This happens when prayer becomes a lifestyle.
