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!

‘Take off that habit!’ - A Moment with Mary
* May 7 – Our Lady of Monticino (Italy, 1776)
* ‘Take off that habit!’
The Venerable Francis de Yepes, a Carmelite tertiary, often saw demons that tried to tempt him.
while he respectfully kissed his scapular before putting it on, Satan
approached him holding a gold chain. He said, 'Why not wear this gold
chain instead? Cast away that thing we cannot bear to look at, that just
torments us. Stop persuading so many people to revere and wear it.'
night the monk let his scapular drop on the floor while he was
self-flagellating. He saw demons come close to him. He hurried to put on
the mantle of Mary again. They shouted furiously: 'Take off that habit
that makes us lose so many souls. Those who wear it die piously and
de Yepes forced them to admit the three things that tormented them and
were the most unbearable to them—the Name of Jesus, the Name of Mary,
and the Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
