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!

From CMMB: Emergency: Hurricane Matthew Batters Haiti
"The potential for Haiti is what I would describe as catastrophic." - Dennis Feltgen, National Hurricane Center
her family live in a tent near the southern coast of Haiti. Sadly, the
poorest families have the most to lose in the face of natural disasters.
Hurricane Matthew began battering Haiti last night. At this very moment,
many communities are experiencing extremely high winds, heavy rains and
flooding. Loss of life has already been reported and we are praying for
the best, though we know Haiti is still extremely vulnerable.
Jessica, pictured above, lives in a tent with her mother and her
two-year-old brother Jameson, in the hills just miles from the ocean on
the southern edge of Haiti. Imagine how their tent is faring in
torrential rain and winds over 100 miles per hour. Now, imagine
thousands of additional families facing the same situation. Those
experiencing severe poverty, like Jessica and her family, are the most
at-risk in times of emergency.
We have a highly experienced team on the ground that is mobilizing
partners and resources, but Haiti faces enormous challenges. Besides
rampant flooding, landslides and injuries from the storm, the people of
Haiti will now face unsafe water conditions, amidst a cholera epidemic that has claimed over 10,000 lives, and food insecurity.
After all the progress we have made together, the people of Haiti need
us now even more than before. Please pray for the people of Haiti. And
please consider making a gift today to support the most vulnerable in
the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. Your support, even a small amount,
anyone has the world’s good and sees his brother in need, yet closes his
heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him? Little children,
let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.” 1 John
