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 Virgin was absolutely sure that Jesus would resurrect from the dead
The Virgin was absolutely sure that Jesus would resurrect from the
dead, since he had openly predicted it. What she did not know was the
hour of the Resurrection, which in fact is mentioned nowhere. However,
in Psalm 56, David, speaking in the person of the Father addressing the
Son, said: “Awake, my glory, awake my harp and my lyre!” And the Son
answered: “I will awake at dawn …”
After the Virgin Mary realized the time of the Resurrection, she
wanted to find out if other prophets had mentioned the day of the
Resurrection, and she found this text in chapter 6 of Hosea: “After two
days he will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up and we will
live in his presence.”
The Virgin stood up and said, “These witnesses to the time when my Son
will resurrect from the dead are enough for me”…. And immediately Christ
sent the angel Gabriel to her saying, “You who told my mother about the
Incarnation of the Word, go announce to her his Resurrection.”
Immediately, the Angel flew to the Virgin and said, “Queen of Heaven,
rejoice, because the one you deserved to carry in your womb is risen, as
he said.” And Christ greeted his mother, saying, “Peace be with you.”
