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!

Novena to Our Lady Queen of Peace of Medjugorje, Day 1
"I am the Queen of Peace."(August 6, 1981)
in my life will I ever forget that day. I think I am going to live 5
years less after that day. In that moment I could no longer go either
forwards or backwards. My legs buckled underneath me. But in one moment,
not with my strength, I ran over those bushes and shrubs, it was like
we were floating. We didn't feel any kind of pain. We went closer to
her. We came close to her. In her left hand she was holding Jesus. She
took her right hand, and she was placing it on our heads, and she began
to speak her first words:
"Dear children, I am with you. I am your Mother. Do not be afraid of
anything. I will protect you. I will help you. I will guide you."
But it was difficult to calm down and come to our senses.
One of the girls from among us, who was most relaxed, asked her, "Who are you and what is your name?" And she responded,
am the Queen of Peace. And I have come, my dear children because God
has sent me. My dear children, peace, peace, and only peace. There must
be peace, my dear children. Peace must reign between God and man and
between people. My dear children, this world and this humanity is
finding itself in a great danger. There is a threat that it will destroy
were the first words, that was the first message that Our Lady gave
through us to the world. On that second day we recognized in her our
Mother, and to this day there are still three of us who see Our Lady.

Let us pray:
Prayer to the Queen of Peace
Mary, Mother of God and Our Mother, Queen of Peace!
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful, and enkindle in them the fire of Your love.
- Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created.
- And You shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray:
God, who taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy
Spirit, grant that by the gift of the same Spirit we may be always truly
wise and ever rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord.
