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!

The Holy Spirit communicates profusely to Mary

Pentecost, the Holy Spirit sent down upon the disciples rays of sacred
fire; but he infused Mary with them all. He espoused her again, giving
himself to her more intimately than ever before. We truthfully can say
that the Holy Spirit will never communicate to any creature with such
profusion as with Mary. On that day, a prodigious change took place in
the apostles, who from carnal and rude men became spiritual and divine.
But a still more important change happened in Mary, who did not pass
like them from a state of imperfection to one of holiness; but from a
sublime degree of perfection to another without comparison more sublime.
holiness of God being infinite in itself, nothing can limit his outward
communications. In respect to Mary, he placed no limit other than that
which the essentially finite capacity of a pure creature can place.
this capacity can always increase—without departing from the bounds of
the finite—let us not oppose any thought to the idea that in Mary it
extended beyond the understanding of men and angels.
