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!
MARY, OUR MOTHER

A living Marian tradition in Ethiopia
to the Marian tradition preserved in Ethiopia, the monastery of Al
Maghti (Lower Egypt) was built at a place where the Holy Family stayed
for five days during their flight into Egypt (1).
first year after the founding of the monastery, the monks gathered in
the church saw a pillar of light touch the altar, which turned into a
luminous boat carrying the Virgin Mary, some angels and saints, and also
the Holy Innocents murdered by order of Herod. The Virgin asked the
monks to associate the people to this miracle, so a pilgrimage was
organized. It lasted five days in all, gathering Egyptian, Ethiopian,
Maronite, Greek, Nestorian, Latin and even Muslim pilgrims, who stayed
at huge campsites...
apparitions at the Al-Maghti monastery were well known in Ethiopia,
thanks to the Book of Miracles of Mary. According to this book, whose
existence was confirmed by the geographer Al-Maqrizi (d. 1441), the
monastery was destroyed in 1438 during Ramadan, on order of the Mamluk
sultan of the time.
