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!

Dear Family of Mary!
December 2, 2014
children, remember - for I am telling you that love will win. I know
that many of you are losing hope because around you, you see suffering,
pain, jealousy, envy... But, I am your mother. I am in the Kingdom but
am also here with you. My Son is sending me anew to help you. Therefore,
do not lose hope, instead, follow me - because the victory of my heart
is in the name of God. My beloved Son is thinking of you as He has
always thought of you. Believe Him and live Him. He is the Life of the
world. My children, to live my Son means to live the Gospel. This is not
easy. This means love, forgiveness and sacrifice. This purifies and it
opens the Kingdom. Sincere prayer, which is not only words but is a
prayer which the heart speaks, will help you. Likewise fasting (will
help you), because it is still more of love, forgiveness and sacrifice.
Therefore, do not lose hope but follow me. I am imploring you anew to
pray for your shepherds so that they may always look to my Son who was
the first Shepherd of the world and whose family was the entire world.
In this message Our Lady tells us to believe Jesus and live Jesus. She says that "He is the life of the world."
These words are so true, but they are hard to understand. How can we
live Jesus? I believe that one of the ways we can live Jesus is by
letting Him live us. Jesus wants to live in us, to live our life with us
and in us. He will show us how to love, to forgive, to sacrifice, to
fast and to suffer. He will show us as He lives our life in us.
Caryll Houselander says it so well:
know what the Incarnation means to us, that God the Son, by becoming
human, caught up our human nature into his, made each one of us one with
him. He took our human nature for his own and gave us his. He
experienced everything that we do, except sin, and he even took upon
himself the guilt and punishment of sin.
made himself subject to our limitations: to discomfort, poverty, hunger
and thirst and pain. He knew fear, temptation, and failure. He suffered
loneliness, betrayal, unrequited love, utter desolation of spirit, the
sense of despair and death. He suffered all these things, and all the
secret, incommunicable things known to each individual, which can never
be told; and he overcame them all.
has lived each of our lives. He has faced all our fears, suffered all
our griefs, overcome all our temptations, labored in all our labors,
loved in all our loves, died all our deaths.
took our humanity, just as it is, with all its wretchedness and
ugliness, and gave it back to us just as his humanity is, transfigured
by the beauty of his living, filled full of his joy. So that no matter
what suffering we meet, we can meet it with the whole power of the love
that has overcome the world. (The Risen Christ. pp. 1-3)
words are comforting to me. The mystery of Jesus' Incarnation is a huge
comfort for us all. Jesus has lived our lives and He understands us
from the inside. He wants to unite with us in our individual lives, to
help us win through to His victory! He wants to live in us, and for us
to live in Him. Did He say so in John's Gospel? Isn't this living that
Gospel, letting Jesus live in us and us living Him?
will not leave you desolate; I will come to you. Yet a little while,
and the world will see me no more, but you will see me; because I live,
you will live also. In that day you will know that I am in my Father,
and you in me, and I in you. (John 14 18-20)
is the promise of Jesus, that He is in us, we are in Him, and He is in
the Father. No longer do we live alone. We can actually live Jesus,
because He is in us, and we in Him.
is the life of the world. Our Lady is working tirelessly to bring us
into that life, through her messages. May we draw ever closer to the
Incarnate Savior this Advent. We will not regret it!
