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!

Dear Family of Mary!
children! Also today I am with you and with joy I call all of you: pray
and believe in the power of prayer. Open your hearts, little children,
so that God may fill you with His love and you will be a joy to others.
Your witness will be powerful and everything you do will be interwoven
with God's tenderness. I am with you and I pray for you and your
conversion until you put God in the first place. Thank you for having
responded to my call."

"Pray and believe in the power of prayer."
With these simple words Our Lady awakes in us a new zeal and desire to
pray. Many of us have been praying for healings, conversion of family
members, broken relationships, the poor, for peace in the world, and
many other intentions for a long time. We pray and pray. And we may grow
Our Lady encourages us to pray and believe in the power of prayer. She
knows something we do not know. She sees God's actions, often hidden,
often "covert", reaching into the hearts of those we pray for in ways we
do not perceive. We are not fighting a losing battle! Prayer works
miracles! We are on the winning side, and there will be a triumph.
observed the faith on those He healed, and made it clear that it was
their faith, their belief in Him and His power to heal that brought
about the healing. In Matthew 9 there are several examples. Here are
as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying
aloud, "Have mercy on us, Son of David." When he entered the house, the
blind men came to him; and Jesus said to them, "Do you believe that I am
able to do this?" They said to him, "Yes, Lord." Then he touched their
eyes, saying, "According to your faith be it done to you." And their
eyes were opened. (Mt 9: 27-30)
behold, a woman who had suffered from a hemorrhage for twelve years
came up behind him and touched the fringe of his garment; for she said
to herself, "If I only touch his garment, I shall be made well." Jesus
turned, and seeing her he said, "Take heart, daughter; your faith has
made you well." And instantly the woman was made well. (Mt 9: 20-22)
these healings depended upon the faith that the people had in Jesus.
They believed He was from God, that He had come to heal and deliver
them, and that He loved them enough to heal them. This faith in Jesus
opened the way for Him to act. We may not be following Jesus on the
road, crying out or touching the hem of His garment, but in prayer, we
draw close to Him. We approach Jesus in prayer. And in that personal
encounter with Jesus, we can ask Him for healing, for help, for
intervention in our lives and the lives of those we love. We can look in
His eyes, and say, "Yes, Lord, I believe..."
Our Lady once told us:
children! Also today I call you to prayer. Little children, believe
that by simple prayer miracles can be worked. Through your prayer you
open your heart to God and He works miracles in your life. By looking at
the fruits, your heart fills with joy and gratitude to God for
everything He does in your life and, through you, also to others. Pray
and believe little children, God gives you graces and you do not see
them. Pray and you will see them. May your day be filled with prayer and
thanksgiving for everything that God gives you. Thank you for having
responded to my call." (October 25, 2002)
you, dearest Gospa, for teaching us to pray and to believe. We do
believe. We will pray. Thank you for helping us to grow in faith and
