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

From Opus Bono Sacerdotii: I just received this from Father Tim
Well, I was almost asleep when I recieved this desperate email from a priest, Father Tim:
"Joe, please if you can help me! I lost
another job in November because of the negative press about me on the
Internet, which is all false by the way. I am one of those numbered
among the fall out from the 2002 crisis. A longtime friend from
seminary is now a bishop in another state and gave me your email
address. He said you have a good heart for helping priests and people
there at the Opus Bono who may be able to help me in my current
financial crisis. This is the first time I’ve EVER had to ask for help
from anyone, but I have nothing left. It’s been ten years already since
I was removed from ministry and seven years since the diocese cut me
off of all financial support.
I know it’s Lent and I should be happy to
suffer, but I’m terrified that I may loose my apartment, which I will if
I don’t get this rent paid. I really have nowhere else to turn. I’ve
included my budget below for your consideration.
Current Checking Balance: $9.23 (It’s all I have to my name right now!)
SSI Deposit on February 28: $606. 84
Needed March 3rd to pay rent $368.93
Needed first week in March:
Cricket Phone (March 5th) $ 38.69
Xcel Energy 94.02 (2 overdue payments plus the new one)
IRS payment arrangement 102.00 (Total for Feb. and Mar. payments)
State tax payments 50.00 (Total for Feb. and Mar. payments)
Other Utilities Balance Owed 38.49
March 3rd Rent: $368.92
Other March Expenses: $323.20
Total Needed for Bills: $692.12
If it’s possible for me to request $900
total to keep enough in my checking account for incidental expenses and
groceries, I would be very grateful. This will help me get through
March and then hopefully I will be able to find work by April’s bills.
All I can give back to you is prayer. God bless you and those who
support you, you are all Good Samaritan’s to us poor priests!"
