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

The first Lourdes grotto in the land of the Hashemite Kingdom - A Moment with Mary
The first Lourdes grotto in the land of the Hashemite Kingdom
The first grotto dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes on Jordanian territory was built in the Parish of the Sacred Heart of Nour, 24 km south of Amman (capital of Jordan).
It was inaugurated in the afternoon of May 2, 2015, with the recitation of the Rosary and a Mass celebrated by Mgr. Bishop Maroun Lahham, Patriarchal Vicar for Jordan of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem. After the Mass, the Archbishop blessed the small Marian shrine with holy water from the shrine of Lourdes while the pastor, Father Rifat Bader, read a letter from Mgr. Nicolas Brouwet, Bishop of Tarbes and Lourdes, saluting the first place of worship associated to the French shrine inaugurated on the territory of the Hashemite Kingdom.
On Sunday, May 3rd, the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, Mgr. Fouad Twal, visited the grotto, led the Rosary and attended a choral performance of several Marian hymns.
