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!"

1. Our grand daughter Adrianna.
2. Tears of Mary!

forced to abandon their land. "What we experienced can only be faced
through faith," the nuns said.
