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!

the girls reported more than 2,000 encounters with the Virgin.
title that Mary gave herself in Garabandal—Our Lady of Mount
Carmel—suggests a connection with the apparitions of Lourdes and Fatima.
ending her visits to Lourdes on July 16, the feast of Our Lady of Mount
Carmel, Mary placed the symbol of Mount Carmel as a culmination of a
spiritual journey whose previous apparitions constitute the necessary
Fatima, on October 13, 1917, after the miracle of the sun, Lucia alone
again saw Our Lady of Sorrows and Our Lord who were still blessing the
world, and Our Lady of Mount Carmel giving the scapular.
Garabandal, wearing the scapular, Mary invited us to (re)discover its
