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!
MARY, OUR MOTHER
Friday, March 04, 2016
They can leave truly knowing that Mary is ever at their side
is most fitting that on this day we invoke the Blessed Virgin Mary
above all as Mother of mercy. The door we have opened is, in fact, a
Door of Mercy. Those who cross its threshold are called to enter into
the merciful love of the Father with complete trust and freedom from
fear; they can leave this Basilica knowing – truly knowing – that Mary
is ever at their side.
She is the Mother of mercy, because she bore in her womb the very Face
of divine mercy, Jesus, Emmanuel, the Expectation of the nations, the
“Prince of Peace” (Is 9:5). The Son of God, made incarnate for our
salvation, has given us his Mother, who joins us on our pilgrimage
through this life, so that we may never be left alone, especially at
times of trouble and uncertainty.
Mary is the Mother of God, she is the Mother of God who forgives, who
bestows forgiveness, and so we can rightly call her Mother of
forgiveness… Following Jesus’ example and by his grace, she herself
could forgive those who killed her innocent Son.
For us, Mary is an icon of how the Church must offer forgiveness to those who seek it.
