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!
MARY, OUR MOTHER

Your Weekly Reflection in Prayer from CMMB 2/23/14
“Job spoke, saying: ‘Is not man’s life on earth a drudgery?… I have been assigned months of misery.’” Job 7:1 and 7:3
February 23, 2014
Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time
Some days we find it easy to agree with Job. Not every day, thank
God! But we all have our down days. The winter weather that so many of
us have been dealing with these past few months can bring us down. But
as we approach Spring and the Holy season of Lent, we have to renew our
faith, hope and trust in God.
For Christians, God comes close to us in Jesus Christ. Jesus goes
about sharing the words that give life, reaching out His healing hand to
raise up those who are sick in mind and spirit. He is the Way, the
Truth, and the Life, and especially in those moments when life seems to
be sheer drudgery.
O God most faithful, You sent Your Son to rescue us from
the powers of despair and the power of darkness. Your Son is the light
that illumines the darkness and gives direction to us on our pilgrim
journey. By His holy cross, He has redeemed the world. Enliven us in
faith, hope and love, as we recall
His life and teaching, His death and resurrection. Amen. Rev. Peter Schineller, S.J., CMMB Board of Directors
