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!
MARY, OUR MOTHER

Despite so many reminders from you, O Virgin Mary
Virgin, Daughter of the Father, Mother of the Son, unmarried Bride of
the Holy Spirit, you have shown over the centuries a special attention
for France, eldest “Daughter of the Church.” For the last two centuries
of revolutions, your apparitions have increased. Today we are at the
culmination of a tragedy announced in La Salette (in the French Alps in
1846), which is the apostasy of this country.
Atheism has become a widespread belief supporting laws opposed to the
truth of the Gospel but also to natural law. There are protests, but a
sort of paralysis has overcome the political sphere.
The underlying reason for this lethargy is the abandonment of the
practice of prayer, which has now become habitual in some believers
despite so many reminders from you and the teachings of the Church. And
this is occurring at the same time that the Muslims, in ever greater
numbers, are showing the kind of outward reverence to God that the
baptized have forgotten.
Virgin Mary, hear our plea. Everything is possible with God's grace but
it solicits our freedom as creatures made in His image and likeness. O
Mary conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to you.
Father Patrick de Laubier
