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

Breaking news from South Sudan – Famine Declared - One million are on the brink of starvation
One million are on the brink of starvation
I just donated! Deacon John
South Sudan, mothers are used to hearing babies cry because they are
hungry. It is a daily reality. But imagine the heartbreak of a mother
whose baby is too weak to cry. Imagine a mother’s pain because her baby
is slowly and silently starving to death.
Famine in South Sudan has been declared, the first in any part of the world in six years.
Famine means more than hunger. And the facts are shocking. According to the UN:
Nearly five-million people (about 42% of population) are in urgent need of food
one-million more on the brink of starvation
Emergency support for a family struggling to survive means the difference between living and dying, hope and despair.
We need your help
to provide emergency relief. We’re working with partners on the ground
right now, to support extensive food programs for the most desperate.
We cannot stand by while vulnerable women and children in this poor,
war-torn country suffer from a man-made tragedy. We cannot stand by and
watch women and children die from starvation. Can you?
Thank you for protecting the helpless, hearing to their cries and taking action on their behalf. Your gift means life.
