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

Cholera and starvation are on the rise in Haiti
We must not forget about Haiti.
Satellite images of southern Haiti before and after Hurricane Matthew. Even to the untrained eye, the loss of green vegetation in the image on the right is striking.
New satellite photos taken from space by NASA reveal the extent of the devastation in Haiti.
As you know we have been responding with relief from the very beginning, but the situation remains desperate.
The rains have been unrelenting, causing further swelling of rivers and mass flooding. Cholera is spreading throughout the region and potable water remains scarce.
Food insecurity is another major threat. Families have lost entire crops, which serve as their only source of food. The threat of famine is very real.
In the days following the storm, our community health workers identified 6,000 families who need food and water to survive. Thanks to the generosity of people like you, we have already raised enough money to distribute essential relief to 3,100 families. Please, help us reach all 6,000.
