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!
April 25 – Apparitions of the Great Mediatrix of Graces to Bärbel Ruess (Marienfried, Germany, 1946)
The message of Marienfried
1946, the Virgin Mary appeared at Marienfried, Germany (diocese of
Pfaffenhofen, near Neu-Ulm) to Bärbel Ruess, then 22 years old. There
were three apparitions in all—on April 25th, May 25th and June 25th of that year.
Pereira Venancio, the bishop of Fatima in Portugal, wrote: "The
Marienfried shrine for me is a synthesis of the Marian devotion in our
time. It is one of the most important Marian shrines of the Catholic
Church, where the Mother of God is venerated in countless ways."
Rudolf Graber, bishop of Regensburg, wrote on July 25, 1976: "Whoever
carefully examines the message of Marienfried discovers the meaning of
Revelation chapter 12, which says that the ‘great red Dragon’ that is
trying to destroy her Son continues to pursue the Lady clothed with the
20, 2000, the bishop of Augsburg, Germany, authorized the pilgrimage to
the shrine located in his diocese, even though the Church still has not
issued a declaration on the authenticity of these apparitions. Today an
ever increasing number of pilgrims visit the shrine of Marienfried.
