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!

The One who has the deepest knowledge of God’s mercy - A Moment with Mary
The One who has the deepest knowledge of God’s mercy
is the one who obtained mercy in a particular and exceptional way, as
no other person has. At the same time, still in an exceptional way, she
made possible with the sacrifice of her heart her own sharing in
revealing God's mercy. This sacrifice is intimately linked with the
cross of her Son, at the foot of which she was to stand on Calvary …
No one has experienced, to the same degree as the Mother of the
crucified One, the mystery of the cross, the overwhelming encounter of
divine transcendent justice with love: that "kiss" given by mercy to
justice (Cf. Ps.85(84):11).
No one has received into his heart, as much as Mary did, that mystery,
that truly divine dimension of the redemption effected on Calvary by
means of the death of the Son, together with the sacrifice of her
maternal heart, together with her definitive "fiat."
Mary, then, is the one who has the deepest knowledge of the mystery of
God's mercy. She knows its price, she knows how great it is.
Saint Pope John Paul II
