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 Virgin Mary shares the heavenly destiny of the Savior in body and soul
* August 15 - Assumption of the Virgin Mary
* The Virgin Mary shares the heavenly destiny of the Savior in body and soul
Second Vatican Council affirms that the Immaculate Virgin "was taken up
body and soul into heavenly glory, when her earthly life was over"
(Lumen gentium, n. 59)…
dogma of the Assumption affirms that Mary's body was glorified after her
death. In fact, while for other human beings the resurrection of the
body will take place at the end of the world, for Mary the glorification
of her body was anticipated by a special privilege…
union, which is manifested, from the time of the Savior's miraculous
conception, in the Mother’s participation in her Son’s mission and
especially in her association with his redemptive sacrifice, cannot fail
to require a continuation after death. Perfectly united with the life
and saving work of Jesus, Mary shares his heavenly destiny in body and
Assumption is therefore the culmination of the struggle which involved
Mary’s generous love in the redemption of humanity and is the fruit of
her unique sharing in the victory of the Cross.
Saint John Paul II
