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!
week we begin the beautiful time of Lent. We are given six weeks in
which to slow down, simplify our lives, and focus on Jesus' love for us.
This is not a punishment! It is heaven to think about Jesus' love. But
it takes a little preparation to enter this time of retreat and
renunciation on the right foot. Our Lady has given us many messages
during Lent that are helpful. Here are a few messages that it might be
good to pray over this weekend in order to prepare for our special time
with Jesus. If we can get a good idea of what Jesus and Mary are asking
of us during Lent, we will have much peace on Ash Wednesday!
13, 1986 "Dear children! This Lent is a special incentive for you to
change. Start from this moment. Turn off the television and renounce
various things that are of no value. Dear children, I am calling you
individually to conversion. This season is for you. Thank you for having
responded to my call."
25, 2006 "Dear children! In this Lenten time of grace, I call you to
open your hearts to the gifts that God desires to give you. Do not be
closed, but with prayer and renunciation say 'yes' to God and He will
give to you in abundance. As in springtime the earth opens to the seed
and yields a hundredfold, so also your heavenly Father will give to you
in abundance. I am with you and love you, little children, with a tender
love. Thank you for having responded to my call."
25, 2007 "Dear children! Open your heart to God's mercy in this Lenten
time. The heavenly Father desires to deliver each of you from the
slavery of sin. Therefore, little children, make good use of this time
and through meeting with God in confession, leave sin and decide for
holiness. Do this out of love for Jesus, who redeemed you all with his
blood, that you may be happy and in peace. Do not forget, little
children: your freedom is your weakness, therefore follow my messages
with seriousness. Thank you for having responded to my call."
25, 2008 "Dear children! With the time of Lent, you are approaching a
time of grace. Your heart is like ploughed soil and it is ready to
receive the fruit which will grow into what is good. You, little
children, are free to choose good or evil. Therefore, I call you to pray
and fast. Plant joy and the fruit of joy will grow in your hearts for
your good, and others will see it and receive it through your life.
Renounce sin and choose eternal life. I am with you and intercede for
you before my Son. Thank you for having responded to my call."
2, 2008 "Dear Children, Please especially during this Lenten season,
respond to God's goodness, because He has chosen you and He has sent me
to be among you. Cleanse yourselves of sin and in Jesus, my Son,
recognize the peaceful sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. Let
Him be the purpose in your lives. May your lives be in service of the
Divine love of my Son. Thank you my children."
Wednesday, February 20, 1985 (Ash Wednesday) To Jelena:
"I give you an advice; I would like for you to try to conquer some
fault each day. If your fault is to get angry at everything, try each
day, to get angry less. If your fault is not to be able to study, try to
study. If your fault is not to be able to obey, or if you cannot stand
those who do not please you, try on a given day, to speak with them. If
your fault is not to be able to stand a proud person, you should try to
approach that person. If you desire that person to be humble, be humble
yourselves. Show that humility is worth more than pride."
each day, try to go beyond, and to reject every vice from your heart.
Find out which are the vices that you most need to reject. During this
Lent, you should try and truly desire to spend it in love. Strive as
much as possible."
Peace to all this weekend! Let's prepare with great joy for this season of grace!
