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!
now enter into the Holy Triduum. These most holy days can best be lived
in silence and prayer. Tonight at Holy Mass we will witness Jesus
washing the feet of His disciples and offering His Body and Blood to
them as their heavenly food. This mystery of humble love is beyond our
comprehension. We can only receive it with open hearts.
Before the feast of Passover, Jesus knew that his hour had come
to pass from this world to the Father.
He loved his own in the world and he loved them to the end.
The devil had already induced Judas, son of Simon the Iscariot, to hand him over.
So, during supper,
fully aware that the Father had put everything into his power
and that he had come from God and was returning to God,
he rose from supper and took off his outer garments.
He took a towel and tied it around his waist.
Then he poured water into a basin
and began to wash the disciples' feet
and dry them with the towel around his waist.
He came to Simon Peter, who said to him,
"Master, are you going to wash my feet?"
Jesus answered and said to him,
"What I am doing, you do not understand now,
but you will understand later."
Peter said to him, "You will never wash my feet."
Jesus answered him,
"Unless I wash you, you will have no inheritance with me."
Simon Peter said to him,
"Master, then not only my feet, but my hands and head as well."
Jesus said to him,
"Whoever has bathed has no need except to have his feet washed,
for he is clean all over;
so you are clean, but not all."
For he knew who would betray him;
for this reason, he said, "Not all of you are clean."
So when he had washed their feet
and put his garments back on and reclined at table again,
he said to them, "Do you realize what I have done for you?
You call me 'teacher' and 'master,' and rightly so, for indeed I am.
If I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet,
you ought to wash one another's feet.
I have given you a model to follow,
so that as I have done for you, you should also do."
Our Lady speaks to us of humble love in this message:
children; Today I call you to a humble, my children, humble devotion.
Your hearts need to be just. May your crosses be your means in the
battle against the sins of the present time. May your weapon be patience
and boundless love, a love that knows to wait and which will make you
capable of recognizing God's signs, that your life, by humble love, may
show the truth to all those who seek it in the darkness of lies. My
children, my apostles, help me to open the paths to my Son. Once again I
call you to pray for your shepherds. Alongside them, I will triumph.
Thank you." (October 2, 2010)
Mary wants us to resemble Jesus, through our humility and loving
service. May we follow Jesus, by loving and serving, and carrying our
crosses, so that the way will be open for others to find Him.
We adore You, O Christ, and we bless You, because by Your holy Cross You have redeemed the world.
