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!

like Mary, we must learn to know her through the Gospel. In Nazareth,
for example, it was not uncommon for her to go out from her home. In
fact, the "outgoing Church" that Pope Francis talks about has Mary for
model. She went out to meet the other women of the village just as she
went to meet the guests of the wedding at Cana.
spoke to people kindly; she was benevolent. No criticism ever came from
her mouth. She spoke well of her neighbors; she would encourage and
console others. Her meekness was her strength. Joy and humility are twin
sisters who feed each other. Don Bosco once said: "Remember that the
devil is afraid of happy people!" Think about this sentence often: "The
devil is afraid of happy people!"
