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: Your Weekly Reflection in Prayer 12/29/13
“And over all these put on love, that is the bond of
perfection. And let the peace of Christ control your hearts, the peace
which you were also called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of
Christ dwell in you richly…singing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs
in your hearts to God.” -Colossians 3:14-16

Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph
The beautiful prayer of St. Paul, cited above, is our prayer as we
begin the New Year. We begin this year praying for families. We pray
that God’s love and peace will permeate our lives as individuals and as
A few weeks ago, Pope Francis spoke to a special gathering of
families in Rome at St. Peter’s Square. He explained that if we lived
these three simple words it would enrich our family lives. The words
were “thank you, please, and sorry.” Yes, we need to say “thank you” to
have the grateful heart that St. Paul talks about. We need to show
respect and courtesy by using the word “please” rather than issuing
demands. Lastly, we need the courage and strength to say “sorry” to
admit when we have been wrong so we can achieve peace and unity. May
these attitudes be strong in our families in this New Year.
Almighty God, in Your Son Jesus Christ You have poured upon us Your best
gift of love. Let that love be the bond of perfection in human
families, and the means to bring husband, wife and child to Your
everlasting mansions. Bless our home and bless all the homes of our land
in this New Year, that in them love may abound and happiness abide.
