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!

An incredible change overcame her - A Moment with Mary
July 9 – Our Lady of Itati (Argentina) – Our Lady of Chiquinquira (Colombia)
An incredible change overcame her
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
is a city in the province of Corrientes, Argentina. It was in this
small town that the imposing Basilica of Our Lady of Itatí was built in
1938, in honor of the Virgin Mary.
cult of the Virgin of Itatí dates back to the 16th century, when the
Jesuit missionary Luis Bolaños and the natives he had converted were
saved from an Indian attack thanks to the intervention of the Virgin. A
breach formed on the Yaguari river, making the Itatí Mission safe from
the attackers who decided to withdraw.
Virgin of Itatí is known for her transfigurations, the first of which
took place during Holy Week of 1624 and lasted several days. According
to Fray Luis de Gamarra, "there was an extraordinary change on her face;
she was more beautiful than ever before."
image of the Virgin of Itatí was crowned on July 16, 1900, at the
request of Pope Leo XIII. The largest pilgrimage to the shrine of Our
Lady of Itatí takes place on July 9, the same day that celebrates the
independence of Argentina in 1816.
