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!

the month of December 2009, a "luminous white silhouette" in a pure
white dress with a royal blue belt, was spotted in different places
"apparitions of the Blessed Virgin," according to Abbouna Anba
Theodosius, Bishop-General of Giza Coptic Orthodox Bishopric. The events
generated great religious fervor. More than 200,000 Christians and
Muslims claim to have witnessed the apparitions of the Virgin Mary.
"It’s her, with her
blue and white clothes, there's no doubt about it. It can’t be an
illusion," Rami, 36, told AFP (Agence France Presse). For Coptic
Christians in Egypt, the month of December is dedicated to the Virgin
Mary. "The Blessed Virgin appeared above the church that bears her name,
in Warraq al-Hadar, Giza... It’s a great blessing for the Church and
for all the people of Egypt," Abbouna Anba Theodosius added.
Interviewed by the
magazine Famille Chretienne, Abbouna Ioustos Kamel Dos, the parish
priest of the Coptic Orthodox church of Warraq, affirms: "It is a great
joy for us. These apparitions help us to feel that the Virgin Mary is
close to us... The Virgin Mary, who once took refuge here, has a very
special love in her heart for her Egyptian children. Egypt is a land
blessed by the Lord."
