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!

[November 2013] Monthly Message from Anne, a lay apostle
continue our cycle of monthly messages for 2013 with the message from
November 2005 for our prayer groups and personal reflection.
November 1, 2005
apostles will be known by their love. It has always been this way. Look
for those who treat others gently and you will see My hand at work. If
you begin to follow Me, you will be gentle and loving to other souls.
Dear apostles, during this time I send you great graces. Everything you
need comes from Me. Do not hesitate to answer My call because you feel
you are not holy enough. You are called to holiness, it is true, but all
genuine holiness comes from Me. If you ask Me, I will send it to you in
great abundance. I notice that many souls fear a commitment to Me
because they see only their own flaws and weaknesses. At this time I
want you to stop thinking about yourself in those human terms. It is
your humanity that delights Me, My friend. It is your humanity that
gives Me glory. Souls in heaven give Me praise, it is true. And I return
their love. But when a soul on earth, acting from faith, makes even the
smallest gesture of love or fidelity to Me, I am given great glory and
the family of God is given power. Yes, each time a soul on earth steps
out for God in any way, the Kingdom grows. Do not put a limit on the
importance of each little act and each little prayer. If you rose each
day and pledged your allegiance to heaven with an honest desire to
serve, and then went out and committed sins all of that day, you would
still be considered a friend to the Saviour. Now I know that you will
not do this because when you pledge your allegiance to Me, you are then
wrapped in great graces. These graces assist you in each moment and
illuminate My will for you so that you can more easily make heavenly
decisions. But I am making a point so that you will understand that if
you try to please Me in even the smallest way, you will change the
world. Each prayer, however small and imperfect, fuels this renewal.
Will you answer My call? I am relying on My apostles on earth to spread
My words and to allow My light and love to flow back into this world. It
is only a difficult job if you rely on yourself. If you rely on Me, you
will see the greatest things happen in the shortest time. You will be
filled with My love for others. Ask Me for this. When you do not feel My
love, remind Me of this promise and I will make good on it by sending
you great love for others. This prayer always reflects My will and it is
always answered. If you see souls through My eyes, you will love them.
Be at peace in each moment because you are surrounded by heaven. There
is nothing to fear. Let love direct your actions and you will be a part
of My team.
