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!

Being Immaculate, Our Lady received a full measure of grace (Luke 1:28)
* December 8 – The Immaculate Conception - Consecration of Haiti to Our Lady of Perpetual Help (1942)
* Mary could have sinned
solemnity of the Virgin Mary Conceived without Sin is celebrated on
December 8th. By a singular privilege, which was already a grace coming
from the death of her Son on the Cross, Mary was conceived in the womb
of Anne, her mother, without contracting original sin. It was necessary
that the Son of God would prepare a mother worthy of himself.
immaculate, Our Lady received a full measure of grace (Luke 1:28),
enabling her for the dignity of Mother of God. Yet she was not unable to
sin like her Son, who was both God and man. Mary, for her part, could
have sinned, but she always perfectly consented to the fullness of grace
with which God never ceased to fill her.
... Mary is the
Immaculate Conception, according to the dogma defined by Pius IX in
1854, and according to her own statement to Bernadette of Lourdes in
Set apart to
become the Mother of God, she was able... to exercise maternal mediation
in the line of the mediation of her Son, for all mankind. Those who are
loyal and attached to her will join her in the Glory of God, once they
have become, with her, the Bride of Christ, "splendid, without spot or
wrinkle or any such thing, except holy and without blemish" (Eph 5:27).
