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!

list of needs is far more extensive. Many elderly and ill Catholic
priests have been forgotten and abandoned, and their poverty is
especially painful during the Holy Days of Christmas. Remembering the
Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph’s struggles during this Advent

Holy Family and to honor the birth of Jesus Christ the High Priest?

provide for the many poor priests in severe need who have contacted us
seeking help this Christmas.

World to be born in the darkness of the lives of these often lonely and
impoverished priests by offering your most generous contribution to
Opus Bono. In their names, I thank you sincerely.
