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:

Dear Family of Mary!
children! Pray in this time of grace and seek the intercession of all
the saints who are already in the light. From day to day may they be an
example and encouragement to you on the way of your conversion. Little
children, be aware that your life is short and passing. Therefore, yearn
for eternity and keep preparing your hearts in prayer. I am with you
and intercede before my Son for each of you, especially for those who
have consecrated themselves to me and to my Son. Thank you for having
responded to my call." (October 25, 2014)
believe that one of the fruits of choosing a saint is encouragement.
When we ask God to give us the saint, we give Him permission to reach
into our lives and show us His presence. And He does it in such
beautiful ways. Here are two more emails that share the excitement of
receiving a saint:
Hi Cathy and Denis!
Saints really are a-movin! I teach a small class of 2 students for
grade 5 catechism. Last night at the end of class I told them about how
we can choose a saint (or they choose us!) for the New Year, we used
your list of saints and scrolled up and down at random until we touched
the saint's name. Katie choose St Catherine Laboure and Michael choose
St Michael the Archangel!
was amazed that he choose his name sake, and then Katie cried out that
her name was a shortened version of Catherine too! The looks on their
faces of joy and wonder at the hand of God in this was spine tingling, a
great lesson that - Yes - God is alive and cares about us, if we only
ask he will respond!
chosen saint is St Thomas which is perfect! He who doubted cried out
"My Lord and my God"! He evangelized all through the Middle East to
India. I am in great need of his encouragement .... I am comforted so
much already by St Thomas's presence in my days.
said it so well, "The looks on their faces of joy and wonder at the
hand of God in this was spine tingling, a great lesson that - Yes - God
is alive and cares about us, if we only ask He will respond!" God is
alive!! And He loves us!
Anita also wrote about her experience this year in picking a saint:
to confirm the letters you are receiving concerning our "Saintly
Friends in Heaven" and their help to us here on earth. Since watching
you and Denis, I have chosen or better said "a saint has chosen me" each
year, however, my Saint (not yet canonized) came to me in a different
way. I was at Adoration and the Church has a little library so I
glanced down at the books and saw this wonderful man looking back at me.
The title of the Book was "Man of Faith" and I sure knew the face. I
had read a book on his miraculous healing and also his favorite motto
that has spread everywhere, "The family that prays together stays
Well, I chose Fr. Patrick Peyton to guide me this year and to help me be faithful to the Rosary!!
some strong reason I feel our Dear Lord and His Mother are sending in
the Saints to us in a very strong way........and how beautiful that Mary
TV is getting that message powerfully to share for all those in the
little boat. Anita
you, Anita. I agree that there seems to be a very strong anointing
through our saints, a big boost of grace for us in these times. I feel
very encouraged!! Thank you Lord, for giving us such strong intercessors
and friends from heaven. May they guide us ever closer to You!
PS. If you haven't yet chosen a saint for 2015, there is a list of saints on our webpage (2015 Saints List, http://www.marytv.tv/saints-list
). You can download and print out the PDF of the list, and cut out the
individual entries. Then put them in a container, pray and pull out the
saint God has chosen for you! It is a great blessing!
