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!

Confession Day 8
Dear Family of Mary!
Day 8 of our Novena to St. Isidore and St. Faustina for the grace to understand and love Confession!
"Jesus I trust in You!"
elderly sister revealed the condition of her soul to me. She said that
she had already been suffering interiorly for several years, that it
seemed to her that all her confessions had been bad, and that she had
doubts as to whether the Lord Jesus had forgiven her. I asked her if she
had ever told her confessor about this. She answered that she had
spoken many times about this to her confessors and...."the confessors
are always telling me to be at peace, but still I suffer very much, and
nothing brings me relief, and it constantly seems to me that God has not
forgiven me." (...) In the evening, during Benediction, I heard these
words in my soul: Tell her that her disbelief wounds My heart more than
the sins she committed. When I told her this, she began to cry like a
child, and great joy entered her soul. 
Fr. Alfred Wilson:
about the past are generally the outcome of want of faith. "I should be
so happy," says the doubting Thomas, "if only I knew that my past sins
unbelievers want experiential knowledge and visible proof of
forgiveness, they desire to see their souls pure after Confession, just
as they see their hands clean after washing. What they need is more
virile faith. The desire for proof amounts to a refusal to live by
faith. "Blessed are they that have not seen and have believed," and
blessed are they who are content to take Our Lord at His word. He will
not gratify the desire for the evidence of the senses, because He is too
kind to deprive us of the merit of faith and trust.
of following up their worries, the scrupulous would be far better
employed making acts of faith, "I believe, Lord, help Thou my unbelief!"
Instead of cherishing a secret notion of their own hyper-prudence, let
them regard themselves instead as sadly deficient in faith and humility.
In all their worries there is not a particle of piety but only a
considerable amount of pride, cowardice and unbelief. (Fr. Alfred
Wilson. "Pardon and Peace")
Our Lady of Medjugorje:
children, Today I am calling you to, with complete trust and love, set
out with me because I desire to acquaint you with my Son. Do not be
afraid, my children, I am here with you; I am next to you. I am showing
you the way to forgive yourselves, to forgive others, and, with sincere
repentance of heart, to kneel before the Father. Make everything die in
you that hinders you from loving and saving, that you may be with Him
and in Him. Decide for a new beginning, a beginning of sincere love of
God Himself. Thank you." (January 2, 2010)
forgiveness we receive in Confession flows out of the merciful Heart of
Jesus which is totally poured out for us, sinners. In order for the
grace of forgiveness to have an effect on us, we must believe, we must
trust, we must love Jesus. To doubt the Savior's loving forgiveness is
to exclude ourselves from it. He gives it as a free gift. But we must
accept the gift, and believe!
"I believe, Lord, help my unbelief."
Let us pray:
Lord Jesus, we ask you to give us a true understanding of the
necessity and grandeur of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Help us to
recognize You in the confessional, waiting for us, waiting to forgive
us and embrace us with Your love and mercy. We need forgiveness. Help us
to find our way into Your arms.
