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!

How Mexico has remained true to its Catholic faith
religious fervor of the Mexican people for the Virgin Mary dates from
the very origins of the Spanish conquest of the Americas.
the Franciscan missionaries who first evangelized this part of the
American continent. They were followed by Dominicans, Augustinians,
Jesuits, Carmelites, Mercedarians, and many more recent Marian
Congregations such as the Congregation of the Mission, which introduced
the devotion to the Miraculous Medal.
devotion to Mary is so strong in Mexico that no diocese or major city is
without at least one shrine dedicated to the Mother of God. We find
that the Virgin is venerated there under at least 200 different names,
some of which are known worldwide.
reality is that in Mexico, devotion to the Virgin Mary was greatly
instrumental in the successful evangelization of the country. It is also
thanks to its deep love of Mary that Mexico is still today a country
that has remained true to its Catholic faith.
