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:

Mary TV February 10, 2017 Reflection - You who offer every day of your life to my Son

Dear Family of Mary!
children! You who are striving to offer every day of your life to my
Son, you who are trying to live with Him, you who are praying and
sacrificing - you are hope in this peaceless world. You are rays of the
light of my Son, a living gospel, and you are my beloved apostles of
love. My Son is with you. He is with those who think of Him - those who
pray. But in the same way, He is patiently waiting for those who do not
know Him. Therefore, you, apostles of my love, pray with the heart and
with your works show the love of my Son. This is the only hope for you,
and this is also the only way to eternal life. I, as a mother, I am here
with you. Your prayers directed to me are the most beautiful roses of
love for me. I cannot but be where I sense the scent of roses. There is
hope. Thank you.(February 2, 2017)
"You who are striving to offer every day of your life to my Son..."
Lady gives us a beautiful description of how we can become hope for
this peaceless world. We should not pass over this description lightly.
We want to be sure we are indeed her apostles of love! And so we might
examine how we can offer every day of our life to Jesus.
offering is an intentional act, something that is explicit and
straightforward. If we are to offer every day of our life to Jesus, we
have to be clear about it each day! And a good way to start is to say
the Morning Offering. First thing when we wake, we can pray a prayer in
which we offer to Jesus everything about the day we will be living, for
His glory and for our good. It is really easy to forget to do this! I
know, because I forget. That is why I am glad Our Lady brought it up!
want to suggest a couple of different morning offering prayers. There
are many different ones. If we choose one to say, and really practice it
each morning somehow, as a part of our morning routine, I think it will
have a good effect on our whole day.
Here are some Morning Offering prayers:
The Daily Offering to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer you my prayers,
works, joys, and suffering of this day in union with the Holy Sacrifice
of the Mass throughout the world. I offer them for all the intentions of
Your Sacred Heart: the salvation of souls, reparation for sins, the
reunion of all Christians; I offer them for the intentions of our
Bishops and of all Apostles of Prayer and in particular for those
recommended by our Holy Father this month.
A Morning Offering
Jesus Christ, in union with that divine intention with which You
offered to God Your praises on earth through Your most Sacred Heart, and
now offer them in the Sacrament of the Eucharist everywhere even to the
end of time, I most gladly offer You throughout this entire day, all my
thoughts and intentions, all my affections and desires, all my words
and deeds, in imitation of the most holy heart of the Blessed Virgin
Mary Immaculate. Amen.
The Morning Offering of St. Therese of Lisieux
Jesus, I unite myself to Your perpetual, unceasing, universal
Sacrifice. I offer myself to You every day of my life and every moment
of every day, according to Your most holy and adorable Will. Since You
have been the Victim of my salvation, I wish to be the victim of Your
love. Accept my desire, take my offering, and graciously hear my prayer.
Let me live for love of You; let me die for love of You; let my last
heartbeat be an act of perfect love.
Children's Daily Offering Prayer
For love of me you came to earth;
You gave your life for me.
So every day you give me now
I give back happily.
Take all my laughter, all my tears,
Each thought, each word, each deed,
And let them be my all-day prayer
To help all those in need.
May we be those who offer every day of our life to Jesus!
