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:

Dear Family of Mary!
"Again I say to you, if you knew how much I love you, you would cry with happiness..." (March 18, 2009)
during the Daily Rosary, I had such a strong sense of Our Lady's love
for us as we prayed together. I felt her urgent desire to communicate
her love to us. It was not an anxious desire, but a fervent desire, one
that she could hardly hold back. The only thing that stops her, I think,
is our lack of receptivity. She will not invade us. She waits for us to
invite her into our hearts, where she will show us her love.
Reflecting on this
great love of Our Lady, I remembered a talk that Ivan Dragicevic in
which he tried to communicate this same phenomenon. Here is an excerpt:
dear priests, my dear friends in Christ, and also in a special way
everyone who is joining us over the internet, I would like to greet all
of you as well. I am very happy that I am with you here tonight. I am
very happy that I am here to share with you the good and joyful news
that Our Mother has been sharing with us for these 30 years. Our mother
comes to us, she comes to us when her children are most in need. She
comes to her children when her children are in trouble. She has come
because she wishes to lead us out of this dead end in which this world
finds itself. Throughout the 30 years of these apparitions, truly this
has been a turning point for humanity, for the family, for the Church.
And when I say that we are at a turning point, what I mean is: will we
walk the way of God or will we walk the way of the world.
Lady is calling us to make a decision for God. Because in Him is our
peace. This world is not able to give us peace. That peace which the
world offers us will very quickly disappoint us. That is why we must
make a decision for God. That is why we must accept these treasures
which are eternal. He alone is not temporary. Everything else is
passing. We are on this earth only as pilgrims. We are on a journey.
That is why we must make a decision. We must decide to walk the right
way. Jesus is calling us. Our Lady is calling us. "Come to me all of you
all who are tired and heavy laden, I will give you rest. I will give
have come here tonight to the source. We have come here to Jesus, to
encounter Him. We have come to the Holy Mass. The Mass is the center of
our lives. Our Lady says: "My dear children, let the Holy Mass be the center of your lives." At one apparition with Our Lady, the six of us were kneeling before her, and Our Lady said to us, "My dear children, if tomorrow
you needed to choose between having an encounter with me and coming to
me, or to go to the Holy Mass, no, do not come to me, go to the Holy
Mass." Because when you go to the Holy Mass you are going to an
encounter with Jesus. You are surrendering to Him and opening yourself
to Him and receiving Him.
have come here tonight to our Mother. We have come here tonight to throw
ourselves into her embrace. We have brought her our needs, our desires
and our problems. We have come to her to say to her: "Mother, pray for
us. Pray for us and intercede before your Son for all of us." Our Mother
prays for us. She is always with us even when it is most difficult. She
is with us with her Son. But we must respond to this question. How
much are we with her? How much time do we spend with her in prayer every
day? Our Mother loves us so much. Her tears of joy flow because of her
great love for us. And in one message she says: "My dear children, if you knew how much I love you and care for you, you would cry for joy!" So great is the love of our Mother.
carries us in her heart. She has placed us in her heart. And tonight
during the apparition she was so happy and joyful. That joy was seen in
her face and in her eyes. So great is her love. It is 30 years now since
Our Mother has been with us, our Mother, who teaches us and who is
raising us. Our Mother is a great pastoral teacher. Her son has sent her
to guide us. She said, "My dear children, my Son has sent me to help you."
To be with Our Lady for 30 years... just imagine if you were able to
spend just one minute with her in 30 years! To be in that light of
heaven! It's not so easy to return to this earth after that. I wish I
could remain with her hours and days, kneeling before her. Just to look
at her smile, her beauty, truly it is a great gift. And I don't know if I
will ever be sufficiently thankful for this gift in my life. It is a
great gift and also it is a great responsibility. I know that God has
given much to me, but I also know that He has asked a lot of me.
Such great love is
maybe too much for our little hearts to comprehend. But day by day, if
we live in the presence of that love, we will begin to understand it. We
will grow into that love, and learn how to respond to it with trust and
simplicity. May we turn to Our Lady with each Hail Mary, and say "yes"
to her love, "yes" to her presence, "yes" to her desire to help us. Our
"yes" to her will relieve some of the urgency in her heart, because we
will begin to receive her love.
