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

Three Lessons from Lourdes
Lady of Lourdes teaches – and Bernadette Soubirous understood clearly –
three lessons for the sick: presence, healing, and sacrifice.
“Drink from the spring and wash in it,” said the beautiful Lady. At
her command Bernadette Soubirous, the little shepherdess of Lourdes,
looked around for a spring. There wasn’t one. So she scratched at the
loose gravel. Then from the murky water that appeared she first drank
and then washed her face. She must have looked ridiculous. But in the
following days the puddle became running water and then a stream. Since
that day in 1858 countless pilgrims have bathed in and been healed by
the waters of that spring. These waters and their healing power
(sixty-nine documented miracles) are some of the most immediate and
enduring fruits of our Lady’s appearance at Lourdes.
