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!

May 10 – Our Lady of the Holy House of Nazareth (Dalmatia, 1291)
The holy house of Nazareth on the shores of the Adriatic Sea
the end of the thirteenth century, the terrible news that the Holy Land
was lost to the Christians reached Europe. Nonetheless, while the
Church was deploring this painful loss, a new joy was given to them: the
holy house of Nazareth—place of the birth of the Mother of God, of her
early education and of the Annunciation by the Angel Gabriel of the
wondrous news of the Incarnation of the Son of God—had been found,
transported miraculously, near Tersatz in Dalmatia on May 10, 1291.
After the residents of the region talked among themselves of the
remarkable little house surmounted by a bell tower, their bishop—cured
from a lingering illness—suddenly appeared in their midst. He had prayed
to be able to go see the prodigy for himself, and the Mother of God had
appeared to him, saying, “My son, you called me; I am here to give you
powerful assistance and reveal to you the secret you desire to know. The
holy dwelling is the very house where I was born. It is there that when
the announcement was brought by the Archangel Gabriel, I conceived the
divine Child by the operation of the Holy Spirit…”
Then, after three years and seven months spent in Dalmatia, the holy
house disappeared and was again transported by angels to rest in Loreto,
Italy. The exact date was December 10, 1294.
