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!

Mary asks us to pray for peace - A Moment with Mary
* May 26 – Madonna di Caravaggio (Italy, 1432)
* Mary asks us to pray for peace
May 26, 1432, a resident of Caravaggio (Lombardy) named Giovanetta di
Pietro Vacchi, a simple and God-fearing peasant girl married to a
violent man, said that she saw the Virgin. "Suddenly I saw before me a
beautiful and admirable lady. She was tall, with a graceful face, a
venerable appearance, dressed in blue with a white veil," Giovanetta
apparition asked her to pray and said she had come for peace in the
family, peace between states, and peace between the Eastern and Western
Churches. The prayer for peace between the Eastern and Western Churches
seemed to quickly bear fruit. On July 6, 1439, the Council of Florence
found an agreement between Latins and Greeks on all points under
discussion (the procession of the Holy Spirit, the term Filioque of the
Symbol, the principle of the Eucharist, the Four Last Things, and papal
primacy). Unfortunately, the fall of Constantinople in the year 1452
made this agreement unenforceable.
bishop of Cremona had a church built on the site, which Saint John Paul
II visited in 1992. In the crypt, we can still see the spring that began
to flow during the apparition.
