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!

St Joseph the Worker
Dear Family of Mary!
"Dear children! Open your hearts to the grace which
God is giving you through me, as a flower that opens to the warm rays of
the sun. Be prayer and love for all those who are far from God and His
love. I am with you and I intercede for all of you before my Son Jesus,
and I love you with immeasurable love. Thank you for having responded to
my call." (April 25, 2014)
prayed a Litany to Our Lady of Victory. I was really moved by that
litany. We repeated the word "Triumphant" over and over again, in
relation to the many moments in Our Lady's life. Here are a few:
Triumphant in the Embassy of the Angel Gabriel, Pray for us. Triumphant in Thy Espousal to St. Joseph, Pray for us.
Triumphant at the Scene of Bethlehem, Pray for us. Triumphant in Thy Flight Into Egypt, Pray for us. Triumphant in Thy Exile, Pray for us. Triumphant in Thy Humble Dwelling at Nazareth, Pray for us. Triumphant in Finding Thy Divine Child in the Temple, Pray for us.
Triumphant in the Earthly Life of Our Lord, Pray for us. Triumphant in His Passion and Death, Pray for us. Triumphant in the Resurrection, Pray for us. Triumphant in the Ascension, Pray for us. Triumphant in the Descent of the Holy Ghost, Pray for us.
Triumphant in Thy Sorrows, Pray for us. Triumphant in Thy Joys, Pray for us. Triumphant in Thy Entrance into the Heavenly Jerusalem, Pray for us.
me that Our Lady triumphed at each moment of her life because she had
total faith and trust in the Father. When the Angel Gabriel came to
announce the coming of Jesus, she triumphed over fear, because even
though she was becoming the Mother of God, it was a mystery and she
would be alone with that mystery in the face of her family and the
village. And she triumphed over the sin of Adam and Eve, because she
remained faithful to God's will for her, rather than choose her own way
like Adam and Eve.
Lady triumphed when she trusted St. Joseph to do the right thing in her
regard, and allowed God to speak to him directly about the Baby instead
of defending herself.
Our Lady triumphed over the world and the flesh in Bethlehem, accepting a cave as the place for the birth of the Savior.
triumphed over anxiety, want and fear in the exile in Egypt, as she
trusted St. Joseph and the Father to lead them safely while Herod lived.
She triumphed over panic and even anger in the three day search for the
we know only too well how she triumphed over sin and death in union
with her Son, Jesus, during His Passion and Death and Resurrection.
Lady stood firm through all these trials and difficulties, trusting in
the Father and saying "yes" to Him. And in that she became "Terrible in
Battle". Why? Because she defeated the Devil utterly. She never let the
enemy tempt her, distract her, scare her, or bully her into not trusting
in the Father. She beat him. And now he is terrified of her.
Lady is now our sure protection as we walk through our lives. She knows
what it is like to be tested, and she has the strength of an army
against all temptation. If we stay very close to her, she will fight
with us in our lives, helping us to triumph as well. The very things
that look dark and sad and undesirable right now will become the shining
victories in our story in heaven. Just like Our Lady, we will have a
triumphant tale to tell, because Jesus is our Lord, and He is the
just wanted to share this today. I think St. Joseph is happy that Mary
is honored in this way! Together they made quite a team!
