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!

A bedridden man travels to Lourdes

* A bedridden man travels to Lourdes
Bély family used to live in a quiet suburb of Angouleme, France.
Jean-Pierre was married to Genevieve and had two children. He worked as a
male nurse in a hospital until the first symptoms of multiple sclerosis
appeared in 1972.
Jean-Pierre’s condition deteriorated to the point that he was declared
"100% permanently disabled” and attributed an allowance for a third
person to look after him. In October 1987, when he became bedridden at
the age of 51, he went to Lourdes for the pilgrimage of the Rosary.
After the anointing
the sick on the third day, he felt a deep inner peace. Then, suddenly,
he recovered his sense of touch and was able to move his arms. At the
time, he did not dare to stand up... The following night, an inner voice
told him: "Get up and walk." And he did.
himself loved to point out, "The Lord healed my heart first, then He
healed my body." After twelve years of medical investigations, the
bishop of Angouleme declared that Jean-Pierre’s immediate and complete
cure was “an effective sign of Christ the Savior through the
intercession of Our Lady of Lourdes."
