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!

DEVOTIONAL DAY 10
AUGUST 15, 2013
How can you get God to listen to you?
you ever thought your prayers didn't make it through the roof, let
alone to the throne room of God? Our heavenly Father longs to hear us
pour our heart out to him.
know that God does not listen to sinners, but if anyone is a worshipper
of God and does his will, God listens to him (John 9:31 ESV).
do we worship? Every moment of our life is worship to God; all that we
say, all that we do, all that we think. Let our conversations be
honouring to God. Serving those in need is worshipping God. Taking
control of our thoughts is obeying God. Step up and step out, aware of
the Holy Spirit's presence, power and protection. Walk in the confidence
of the One who lights our path, who loves us and lives in us.
How do we do His will? Do
what is right. Think good thoughts. Love God with all our heart, all our
emotions and all our will. Love God by obeying Him. The Bible gives us
some simple instructions: respect our parents and elders; live in unity
with our brothers; love our neighbours and obey God by sharing the
gospel with them. If we are honest, many of us have hurdles to overcome
right here. Are all our relationships good with our family, friends and
If not, worship God by
doing something about it today. Are we looking for opportunities to
share the gospel? Is Jesus such a part of our life that we can't stop
talking about Him?
forgive me for failing to obey you. Speak to me and show me where I
need to change Thank you for my family, my friends and my neighbours. I
want to love them as you love them and serve them in an attitude of
worship to you.
present my body as a living sacrifice, aware that it is holy and
acceptable to you, because of all that Jesus accomplished on the cross
for me. I step up and step out into the world today willing to do your
will and know that I am empowered by your Holy Spirit. I give you all
praise and honour, in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
