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!

The statue of the Virgin Mary that has wept 101 times
Akita, Japan, in the 20th century, a wooden statue of the Virgin Mary
(a replica of the Virgin who appeared in Amsterdam, the Netherlands,
known as The Lady of All Nations) has shed tears on 101 different
Sasagawa, a Japanese nun and member of the Community of the Handmaids of
the Eucharist in Akita, was favored in 1956 with visions of her
guardian angel and the Mother of God. Mary gave her messages of extreme
seriousness. At the sight of people so estranged from God, our Heavenly
Mother expressed her sadness by shedding real tears.
In 1984, just
before retiring at a venerable age, the diocesan Bishop of Niigata, Mgr.
John Shojiro Ito, in consultation with the Holy See, wrote a pastoral
letter in which he recognized the supernatural character of the series
of mysterious events that took place from 1973 to 1981 in a convent of
his diocese, in Akita.
Ratzinger, now Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI, approved the apparitions of
Akita events as being "reliable and trustworthy" in June 1988.
