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!

Day Six - Novena to the Holy Spirit
Dear Family of Mary!
we consider the Holy Spirit as our Comforter and Strengthener. Our Lady
encourages us to open our hearts to the Holy Spirit so He can transform
us. The Holy Spirit will help us to call God our Father and make us
capable of love! St. Paul in The Letter to the Ephesians says the very
same thing, that through the Holy Spirit we will be strengthen in the
inner man and we will be grounded in love. We need very much the
strengthening and comforting love of the Holy Spirit, for we are
naturally weak and lack the power to love on our own. Oh Comforter to
thee we cry!
Our Lady asked us to open our hearts to the Holy Spirit:
children, Today I call you to open your hearts to the Holy Spirit and
permit Him to transform you. My children, God is the immeasurable good
and therefore, as a mother, I implore you: Pray, pray, pray, fast and
hope that it is possible to achieve good, because from that good love is
born. The Holy Spirit will strengthen that love in you and you will be
able to call God your Father. Through this exalted love, you will truly
come to love all people and, through God, you will regard them as
brothers and sisters. Thank you." (November 2, 2007)
St. Paul prays that we might be strengthen by the Spirit in the inner man:
this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family
in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his
glory he may grant you to be strengthened with might through his Spirit
in the inner man, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through
faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power to
comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height
and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge,
that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. (Eph 3: 14-20)
Let us pray through this wonderful hymn to the Holy Spirit:
Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest,
And in our souls take up your rest; Come with your grace and heavenly aid To fill the hearts which you have made.
