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!

Sr. Emmanuel: "Medjugorje is not prohibited by the Church"
Medjugorje Is Not Prohibited By
Medjugorje, June 29, 2015
Dear brothers and sisters, peace!
can guess, we are receiving a lot of questions about the position of the
Church regarding the apparitions of Our Lady in Medjugorje.
more, we are facing a modern disease - to read, comment and become
passionate about media statements when its first goal is not always to
convey the truth. Many in the media are pushing their own
position with a great deal of noise. Of course one may express a
personal opinion on the subject, and slip in snippets of the truth. But
whoever wishes to be informed about the truth of an important matter
can do it in a way that is secure and that heals the confusion,
disorder, doubt, bitterness, rebellion, or even triumphant satisfaction
which does not necessarily come from the Holy Spirit.
to do this is easy: just go to the source of the information! And the
only source of information from the Holy See is the spokesman appointed
for this purpose: Father Lombardi. Whoever is looking for a recent
statement from him regarding the position of the Holy See on Medjugorje
will not find one! Whoever is searching the Vatican website on the
subject will find nothing, not a thing.
does this mean? The media virus has struck once again, sowing turmoil in
many hearts with all its contradictions. The truth is that neither the
Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (the CDF), nor the Pope have
issued an official statement about Medjugorje. They have not even held a
meeting to address the subject together. In addition, no meeting has
been scheduled during the summer. It is also very likely that the theme
of the family - the great theme of the year - will take precedence over
the Medjugorje issue. So, let's be patient!
those who have experienced many graces in Medjugorje and who have
wholeheartedly followed the school of the Queen of Peace should be
reassured, because today we can state the following:
- Medjugorje is not forbidden by the Church.
- The Pope has not yet taken a stand on Medjugorje.
- Everyone can travel there in private pilgrimage without disobeying the Church.
- The messages are not prohibited, everyone can disseminate them and especially live them.
- The visionaries have not been declared to be false.
Holy Father carries a great responsibility, because the final word will
depend on him. We know that Cardinal Müller, prefect of the CDF, has
sometimes expressed negative statements regarding Medjugorje. That is
why, in this time of grace and struggle, we need to pray a lot to the
Holy Spirit for the Holy Father, and also fast for him. May the will of
God be fulfilled!
position Rome will express through official channels, we will obey it.
Obedience will be the best sign that we are walking with the Queen of
Peace, with the Church and not without the Church. Mary is relying on us
to help her fully realize her plans. Because, let us not forget: "In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph."
