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!

“Why 5 Saturdays to honor Our Lady?”
Picture taken in Coimbra, Portugal, Sister Lucia's Memorial Museum
day, Sister Lucia (one of the three visionaries of Fatima in Portugal)
was at the Motherhouse of her convent in Tuy (Spain). She had to respond
in writing to a number of questions from her confessor about the
reparatory devotion of the five first Saturdays of the month requested
One of the questions was "Why five Saturdays and not nine or seven in
honor of Our Lady?" At night, in the chapel, the visionary was as usual
doing a holy hour, from 11:00 pm to midnight, according to the requests
of the Sacred Heart at Paray-le-Monial. A divine presence revealed to
her that there are five kinds of offenses and blasphemies uttered
against the Immaculate Heart of Mary:
Blasphemies against her Immaculate Conception;
Blasphemies against her perpetual virginity;
Blasphemies against her divine and spiritual motherhood;
Blasphemies from those who neglect to implant in the hearts of children a knowledge and love of our her;
Offenses involving the rejection and dishonoring of her images.
