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!
MARY, OUR MOTHER

Spiritual Gems-The First Saturdays of Reparation and 2015-January 3, 2015
The First Saturdays of Reparation and 2015
The great unknown of the Fatima Message is that our Mother also asked for the Communions of Reparation on 5 consecutive First Saturdays. It was contained in the same sentence as the request for the consecration of Russia. Have you done your part? If not, let us do it in 2015!
Based in John Haffert’s “God’s Final Effort” (commit now by writing the dates on your calendar…this is a resolution worth making…with the promise of salvation if all the requests are completed.)

In these times of spiritual battle, which is growing more violent day by day, we all need spiritual peace and repose; we need to be consoled and strengthened by God through Our Lady. The danger of many being eternally lost is grave and we need to make reparation for sin. Our Lady of Fatima taught us and given us weapons to use in this supernatural battle: –the consecration to her Immaculate Heart, –the frequent recitation of the holy rosary, –and the practice of the five first Saturdays of the month in reparation for the offenses committed against her Motherly Heart. Our Lady asks us to unite ourselves with her in prayer, meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, going to monthly confession and making a Communion of reparation. Mother Mary promised, through her servant Sister Lucy of Fatima, special protection at the moment of death and all the graces needed for our salvation for those of her children who devoutly carry out the practice of the five first Saturdays. What a gift! Why five first Saturdays? To make reparation for the five main offenses committed against the Immaculate Heart: 1) Insults committed against the Immaculate Conception, 2) Against Our Lady’s perpetual virginity, 3) Against her divine and universal motherhood, 4) Against her images, 5) for the souls of the little ones who are being alienated against Our Lady. Let us give Our Lady a generous response to her request for reparative prayer and consecration to her Immaculate Heart. The Most Holy Trinity will be highly pleased with us and give us light and strength to walk along the difficult roads of our time. God bless us all+
