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: Let's not forget this heartbreaking reality
“No food. No water. No homes. They’ve lost everything.” – Dr. Dianne Jean-Francois, CMMB Country Director, Haiti
Our team on the ground are extremely worried about what they've
witnessed in the communities they've visited. The level of destruction
is overwhelming. People have lost everything and they don't have what
they need to survive. If their immediate need for clean water and food
is not met, the number of deaths will rise. Together we are working to
stop this from happening.
Thanks to compassionate and generous people like you, our staff and
volunteers are working frantically, day and night, to get help to where
it is needed most. Over the weekend and early this week, they
have assisted 1,000 families with food, water purifying tablets and
essential medical supplies.
People waiting in line to receive essential items
In the communities where we work, there are 5,000 more families that need urgent helpto survive. Every one of these families matter. Each are facing their own tragedies.
Families like Vilieme's. We met Vilieme two days ago, standing in front of what used to be her home.
Vilieme's youngest son stands in what used to be their home
She and her youngest son were
here alone when the hurricane hit. The high winds rattled the doors and
roof of their simple dwelling, and water started to pour in. They ran to
a nearby neighbor who offered them shelter. After the worst of the
storm had passed, they found their home destroyed, their few possessions
washed away and their garden – which was their only source of food –
And even more heartbreaking, Vilieme has not been able to reach one of her children and she fears the worst.
