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:

Dear Family of Mary!
for the firmness of faith, because love and mercy come from firm faith.
Through love and mercy you will help all those who are not aware that
they are choosing darkness instead of light...." (March 2, 2015)
Faustina had a very firm faith. It is demonstrated throughout her
Diary. Though she often went through difficult moments of darkness, she
never lost her faith in the love of Jesus. And she wrote many beautiful
prayers and hymns to Jesus, the Father and the Holy Spirit, in which she
extols their love and mercy.
is a prayer that St. Faustina wrote in February of 1938. It seems to be
a spontaneous prayer that erupted from her great love for God. We can
pray it today:
Great Merciful God, Infinite Goodness, today all mankind calls out from
the abyss of its misery to Your mercy - to Your compassion, O God; and
it is with its mighty voice of misery that it cries out. Gracious God,
do not reject the prayer of this earth's exiles! O Lord, Goodness beyond
our understanding, Who are acquainted with our misery through and
through, and know that by our own power we cannot ascend to You, we
implore You: anticipate us with Your grace and keep on increasing Your
mercy in us, that we may faithfully do Your holy will all through our
life and at death's hour. Let the omnipotence of Your mercy shield us
from the darts of our salvation's enemies, that we may with confidence,
as Your children, await Your final coming - that day known to You alone.
And we expect to obtain everything promised us by Jesus in spite of all
our wretchedness. For Jesus is our Hope: Through His merciful Heart, as
through an open gate, we pass through to heaven. (St. Faustina's Diary -
prayer of intercession for all God's children is one way to help those
who are not aware that they are choosing darkness instead of light. By
interceding for them, we can win graces for their conversion before it
is too late. Indeed, "All mankind calls out from the abyss of its misery
to Your mercy - to your compassion, O God..." Thank you, Father for
giving us the firm faith to call out to you for the sake of all Your
Our Novena to St. Joseph continues:
Novena Prayer to St. Joseph, Husband of Mary and Foster Father of Jesus!
St. Joseph, you were given the awesome task of protecting and guiding
Jesus and His mother, Mary, through the difficult early years of
Jesus' life. The Father asked you to steer the little ship of the
family through many troubled waters, from the earliest moment of
Jesus' conception, when your gentle heart waited for a word from the
Father, to the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem where there was no room in
the inn, to the escape from Herod's soldiers and the flight into
Egypt, to the return to Nazareth where Jesus and Mary lived their
hidden life with you, to the loss and finding of Jesus in the Temple
in Jerusalem. You protected, guided, and provided for Jesus and Mary
while depending on the providence of heaven.
are so grateful to you for joining us in this little boat on the
digital sea - the Daily Rosary. We trust that you will guide, protect
and provide for us as you did for Jesus and Mary! We thank you in
advance for your loving, fatherly care for us as we strive to respond to
Our Lady's call from Medjugorje.
St. Joseph, Husband of Mary and Foster Father of Jesus, pray for us!
