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 should we be afraid?”
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Saint Catherine Labouré, D.C.
Catherine Labouré was born on May 2, 1806 at Fain-lès-Moutiers
(France). She died on December 31, 1876 in Paris. Catherine was a
Daughter of Charity who was favored with apparitions of the Virgin Mary
in July and November 1830, during her novitiate, inside the chapel of
the convent of the Rue du Bac in Paris. This event is the cause of the
spread of the "Miraculous Medal," worn today by many Catholics. She was
canonized in 1947 by Pope Pius XII.
On the day of
her death she asked that 63 children recite around her bed each
invocation of the Litany of Our Lady ... Catherine saw in the figure 63
the illustration of an oral tradition that attributes to the Virgin a
life of 63 years: fifteen years on each side of Christ’s 33 years of
This is how
Catherine wished to dedicate to Our Lady the 70 years of her own
hard-working life, but also her happiness to go to heaven. “Why fear to
go see Our Lord, his Mother and Saint Vincent?” These were some of Saint
Catherine’s last words before she closed her blue eyes.
