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!

In defense of girls’ and boys’ bathrooms
September 30, 2016
This may be our last protection against the Obama administration’s “transgender” bathroom rules!
A Virginia school district has petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to hear its case for bathroom privacy. The federal government’s radical gender ideology agenda is being forced upon schools nationwide, including many Catholic schools and colleges, and it must be stopped.
That’s why this week The Cardinal Newman Society and severalNewman Guide colleges filed a friend of the court brief, authored by the attorneys of the First Liberty Institute, which urges the Court to take up the bathroom case.
In addition to the Newman Society, the brief was joined by John Paul the Great Catholic University, Thomas Aquinas College, Thomas More College of Liberal Arts, Wyoming Catholic College and the Ignatius Angelicum Liberal Studies Program. We were delighted to also be joined by the National Catholic Bioethics Center and religion expert Dr. Byron Johnson of Baylor University.
The brief argues that the Education Department’s “gender identity” rules under the federal Title IX law raise significant concerns that could impact the religious freedom of Catholic schools.
Also: A Catholic school in Tennessee is being sued for telling a male student he couldn’t bring a male date to a homecoming dance. See more top news in our weekly Catholic education news roundup by reporter Matt Archbold.
