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!

cannot speak of Cuzco, Peru, without recalling that it was once the
capital of the Incas. When the city of Cuzco was taken by the
conquistadors on November 15, 1533, one of its new occupants’ priorities
was to build a place of worship symbolizing the triumph of the "true
faith"—the Catholic faith—over the "idolatry" that the traditional Inca
religion represented to them.

October of 1534 they began building the first Christian church in the
city, on a site called "Sunturhuasi" that later became the Cathedral of
Our Lady of the Assumption, now a major Catholic shrine in the city of
23, 1536, some Spanish Christians were besieged by incendiary Indians in
Sunturhouasi. Providentially, the Virgin Mary appeared with the Child
Jesus, and extinguished the fire. Pilgrims went to the scene to venerate
the one whom the Indians now call "Pacha Tacctacc," meaning "the Lady
who walks on this ground."
