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!

Dear Family of Mary!
"My children, pray, pray, pray for the gift of love because 'love' is my Son..." (November 2, 2013)

came to know the tiniest specks in my soul, and knowing the depths of my
misery, I fell to my knees and begged the Lord's pardon, and with great
trust I immersed myself in His infinite mercy. Such knowledge does not
depress me nor keep me away from the Lord, but rather it arouses in my
soul greater love and boundless trust. The repentance of my heart is
linked to love. These extraordinary flashes from the Lord educate my
soul. O sweet rays of God, enlighten me to the most secret depth, for I
want to arrive at the greatest possible purity of heart and soul. (852,
"The repentance of my
heart is linked to love." St. Faustina experience the gaze of the Lord.
That gaze was entirely love. It was totally love. And that love

smallest imperfections, because they were impediments to love. And in
that light, St. Faustina desired to be purified. She chose to be
transformed by that love, that gaze, so that she would be capable of

purifying gaze. It enkindles a desire in the soul, the desire for God.
And that desire burns away all that is not of God, so that the soul can
be united with Him. Purgatory is such a state of desire. It is love that
May we all experience
the gaze of love, the gaze of the Lord, so that we will desire Him above
all else. That desire will move us to true and complete repentance!
