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 3
DEVOTIONAL DAY 3
AUGUST 8, 2013
that God will awaken in His people a full awareness of the abortion
crisis, and that they will respond to His call to "speak up for those
who cannot speak for themselves."
those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward
slaughter. If you say, "But we knew nothing about this," does not he who
weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it?
Will he not repay each person according to what he has done?" (Proverbs
has become the leading cause of death worldwide, ending the lives of
more than 42 million babies every year. More lives are lost annually to
abortion than to war, hunger, cardiovascular disease, or AIDS. Every
child that dies is precious in God's sight - made in His image and
likeness. In addition to the millions of babies who perish, millions of
women are harmed each year by abortion. Some are killed by abortions,
many are physically scarred, and millions more are wounded emotionally,
psychologically, and spiritually.
different than Christian persecution in China or genocide in Darfur,
once we become aware of a grave abuse of human rights anywhere in the
world, we can no longer say we didn't know. Lives are at stake, and we
are called to respond.
we pray - and as we work to end the worldwide injustice of abortion -
God will hear, and He will move mightily. I have witnessed this first
hand. From just one hour of prayer around an old wooden table in Texas,
God birthed the 40 Days for Life movement, which has since grown to more
than half a million volunteers in 501 cities around the world over the
last six years. 7,536 lives have been spared from abortion, 38 abortion
facilities have gone out of business, and 83 workers have experienced
conversions and quit their jobs in the abortion industry.
All because God's people acknowledged the abortion crisis ... and were willing to rescue those mother and babies at risk.
What can God do through YOU, as you pray - and work - to end abortion?
help me to see your children as you see them - as precious, unique
gifts made in your image and likeness. Break my heart over the loss of
these babies through abortion.
Help me resolve today to never be silent when human life is at risk. Help me to do everything
I can to rescue those at risk of abortion, and to work until that day
when no more women cry, and no more children die from abortion.
I ask this in your most holy name, Amen.
