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!

Seboy, candidate of the Party for Justice and Development (AKP) in the
region of Izmir (Smyrna, Turkey) stated that, if he was elected in the
legislative elections of June 7, 2015, he would sponsor, with the
Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the project to build in the Selcuk
district the largest statue in the world dedicated to the Blessed Virgin
statements to the local press, the candidate presented the idea as an
attempt to enhance the touristic appeal of the area that is also known
for the ruins of ancient Ephesus and the site of Meriem Ana Evi, the
"House of the Virgin Mary", discovered in 1891 through the private
revelations of the mystic Anne Catherine Emmerich.
parliamentary candidate’s whim was inspired by the giant statue of
Christ the Redeemer of Corcovado, overlooking the bay of Rio de Janeiro.
The several projects presented by the candidate at meetings with
potential voters also included the construction of a cable car for
tourists to access the top of the hill on which the statue of Our Lady
would be erected.
