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!

One day in 1689…
Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to Saint Margaret Mary (a Roman Catholic
nun in Paray-le-Monial, France), when the young nun was sick. Mary was
"very affectionate" and they spoke together at length. Mary said:
heart, my dear daughter, in the health that I give you from my divine
Son. You will have a long and difficult way to go. You will always have
to carry the cross and be pierced with nails and thorns and torn by
whips. But fear not, I will not leave you and I promise I will always
12th century, devotion to the Sacred Heart was already dear to Saint
Anthony of Padua, Saint Bonaventure and Saint Clare of Assisi, as it was
in the 17th century to Pierre de Berulle and Saint John Eudes.
in the year 1689, Jesus said to Saint Margaret Mary that he wished for a
consecration to be performed by the King of France (Louis XIV), with
the representation of His Sacred Heart on the French flag and a new
national shrine dedicated to the Sacred Heart in which France would be
consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Unfortunately, Louis XIV did
nothing and the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Montmartre was not to be
inaugurated until 1919.
