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!

They dreamt the same dream
The Holy Candle
the year 1105, the inhabitants of Seninghem (a small town in northern
France) and the surrounding province were struck with the terrible
disease similar to the plague, commonly called "Saint Anthony’s Fire" or
"hell fire" because its victims suffered burning sensations in all
parts of their body.
the same time, there were two jugglers, one named Itier, the other
Norman, who hated each other because Norman had killed Itier’s brother.
One night, they both had the same dream: the Virgin Mary appeared to
them and told them to go to the Cathedral of Arras (in northern France)
and speak to a certain bishop there called Lambert.

understood that Mary had sent these two men so that he could reconcile
them. He spoke to each one separately and then brought them together. He
asked each one to give the other the kiss of peace and to spend the
night in prayer in the cathedral.
on Sunday, May 28, 1105 (the feast of Pentecost that year), Mary
appeared to them, gave them a lighted candle, and asked them to pour
some of its melted wax in water, which they were to give to drink to the
sick and to pour on their wounds. Miraculously, all those who drank
this water were healed.
