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 servant of Mary will not lose his soul
* February 29 – Pope Saint Hilarius (Rome, d. 468)
Anselm says, that just as he who is not devoted to Mary and protected
by her cannot be saved, so it is impossible that he who recommends
himself to the Virgin, and is regarded by her with affection, should be
Saint Bonaventure, too wrote: He who neglects the service of Mary shall
die in sin… And in the same sense the holy Church applies to Mary these
words of Proverbs: All that hate me love death...
On the other hand, Mary says: He that hearkeneth to me shall not be
confounded. He who has recourse to me, and listens to what I say to him,
shall not be lost. From which Saint Bonaventure said: Oh, Lady, those
who are mindful to honor thee, shall be far from perdition. Even when,
as Saint Hilary says, they have hitherto deeply offended God.
Hence the devil strives so hard with sinners, in order that, having lost divine grace, they may also lose devotion to Mary.
Saint Alphonsus of Liguori,
In The Glories of Mary, chap VIII
