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!

We have always been programmed for Heaven
* September 14 - Exaltation of the Holy Cross – Our Lady of the Three Ears of Grain (Alsace, France, 1491)
* "We have always been programmed for Heaven"
Acutis (1991-2006), a former student of the Jesuit college in Milan
(Italy), died of leukemia, offering his suffering "for the Church and
Pope Benedict XVI."
Since the day of
his first communion at the age of 7, Carlo never missed daily Mass and
he often spent time in front of the tabernacle to adore the living
presence of Christ in the Eucharist. At 11, he wrote: “The more we
receive the Eucharist, the more we become like Jesus and the more we
already have a foretaste of heaven on earth.”
confidante was the Virgin Mary and, for her, he prayed the Rosary every
day. He said: “Our goal is to be part of the Infinite, not the finite.
The Infinite is our true homeland. We have always been programmed for
Heaven." He added: "We are all born with our originality, but many of us
die like photocopies." In order not to "die like a photocopy," Carlo
used the Word of God as his compass.
especially with computers, he devoted his free time to volunteer work
for people in need. The steps for Carlo’s beatification were approved on
February 15, 2013, by the Diocese of Milan.
