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

If you don’t go to Our Lady as Mother…
* August 9 – Our Lady of the Parish (Italy, 1829)
* If you don’t go to Our Lady as Mother…
beautiful relationship with Our Lady, the relationship with Our Lady
helps us to have a good relationship with the Church: both are Mothers …
You know the beautiful passage of Saint Isaac, abbot of Stella: what
can be said of Mary can be said of the Church and also of our soul. All
three are feminine, all three are Mothers, all three give life. The
relationship with Our Lady is the relationship of a son … Watch over
this: if there is no good relationship with Our Lady, there is something
of an orphan in my heart.
remember once, 30 years ago, I was in Northern Europe… And a family of
practicing Catholics invited me… (they were) enthusiasts of Jesus
Christ… (and) they said: “Yes, thank God we have surpassed the stage of
Our Lady…” And how is this?, I said. “Yes, because we have discovered
Jesus Christ, and we no longer have need of her.”
somewhat pained; I didn’t understand well… And this isn’t maturity! It’s
not maturity. To forget the Mother is something awful… And, to say it
another way: if you don’t go to Our Lady as Mother, you certainly will
have her as a mother-in-law! And this isn’t good.
