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!
When the Son of Man comes in His glory,
and all the angels with him, he will say, “Come, O blessed of My Father,
inherit the kingdom prepared for you, for I was in prison and you came
to me.” Matthew 25:31
When was the last time you visited Jesus Christ the High Priest in prison?
By virtue of your life-giving support to
Catholic priests in prison through your generous donations to Opus Bono
Sacerdotii, YOU, as our trusted Partner in Mission, visit Jesus Christ
the High Priest every time we visit or send assistance to the over one
hundred Catholic priests in prison who have depended daily on Opus
Bono’s support since our founding in 2002.
Today we received in the mail this
envelope and a letter from one of the priests, an alter Christus, YOU
support in prison. He penciled the picture of Pope Emeritus Benedict
XVI by hand in his prison cell. Father Ron’s request was simple:
“Dear Joe and Pete, the Lord of Life be
with you on this day, January 22nd, a day of prayer for life. The fault
is mine. The two most precious items I possess here in prison are the
Divine Office and the Magnificat, which help me to live out my life of
prayer and penance with hope in His Divine Mercy. If it is possible for
you to renew my subscription for another year I would be ever so
grateful. As always, I offer my prayers and sufferings for all of you
at Opus Bono and those that support you. In Christ, Father Ron.”
Subscriptions to the Magnificat and other
spiritual works, like the Divine Office, are costly, but desperately
needed by our priests in prison. Although Lent doesn’t begin until Ash
Wednesday, February 18th, would you consider making a donation today in
preparation for Lent so that we can continue to send these vital
spiritual materials to our priests in prison?
