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!

Global 40 Days of Prayer: Devotional: Day 15
DEVOTIONAL DAY 15
AUGUST 20, 2013
familiar verses from Hebrews 12 to discover both what we should pray
and how we should pray as we devote ourselves to prayer during this
since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us
throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles,
and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix
our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the
joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down
at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such
opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose
heart (Hebrews 12:1-3 NIV).
As we pray, there are some important reminders in these verses to strengthen us.
We are not alone! As
we pray let us draw encouragement from those whose faith-filled lives,
even in times of difficulty and challenge, have reflected the
faithfulness of God. May we not grow weary or lose heart as we pray.
we pray ask God to show us the hindrances in our communities, nations
and around the globe which create resistance to revival. Pray these
hindrances may be thrown off.
we pray ask God that the entangling sin affecting so many lives today
may be completely broken and people find freedom in Jesus.
as we pray, let's ask God for a renewed desire to seek Jesus first and
let us fix attention on Him. There is so much to distract us. Let us not
grow weary or lose heart especially when opposition comes for Jesus has
gone before us.
Give thanks for Jesus using these verses.
as we meditate on these verses, we want to say sorry for the times when
we have become hindered and entangled with sin. Please set us free.
show us how we can pray freedom over our community and nations so that
those around us would we free - fixing their eyes on Jesus and seeking
We thank you for all whose faithfulness has encouraged us and especially we thank you for the example of Jesus Christ. Help us to keep considering Him and learning from His life and from all He endured for us. In His precious name we pray. Amen.
