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!

A man walked to the altar and fired point blank - A Moment with Mary
French priest set off to celebrate Holy Mass in a church at a Marian
shrine. On the way there he realized that he had forgotten to put on his
scapular. Although he was already far from his home, he returned
without hesitating to go get “Mary’s habit,” since he did not want to
celebrate Mass without it.
the Holy Sacrifice, a young man walked up to the altar and took out a
pistol. He fired point blank at the priest. However, to everyone's
amazement, the priest continued to say Mass, as if nothing had happened.
first thought was that the bullet had providentially missed its target.
But that was not the case: the priest found the bullet inexplicably
stuck in his scapular of Mount Carmel. That flimsy piece of cloth had
acted as a breastplate for a soldier of Jesus Christ!
A young Karol Wojtyla, with his scapular
various times in history, many soldiers have received the same favor
from Heaven, when the enemy’s lethal bullet was stopped in the scapular
they were wearing, saving their lives.
