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

Even in the most depraved executioner, a Marian fragment remains - A Moment with Mary
* May 31 - Visitation of the Virgin Mary
* Even in the most depraved executioner, a Marian fragment remains
Even in the most depraved executioner, a Marian fragment remains
- Pope Francis said to the priests and religious of Naples on Saturday,
March 21: "A priest, a monk, or a nun who does not love the Blessed
Virgin, who does not pray the Holy Virgin—who does not pray the
Rosary—if that person does not want the Mother, the Mother will not give
him her Son." Can you explain this further?

reminds me of the dialogue written by Bernanos in the Diary of a Country
Priest. The old priest wants to share with his young colleague his
mission of facilitating the work of grace in people’s hearts. “Do you
pray to the Virgin Mary? Not mechanically, without thinking about it… Do
you want to believe that in our old world crushed by sin, evil, and
violence, there is a pure source, so clear and pure that it could not
even see its own reflection, made for the sheer joy of the Father?”
in the most depraved executioner, there is still a small immaculate and
Marian fragment. It is our job to discover it, to bring it out of the
mud, to the surface. The Rosary helps us view the world with the
confidence of a God who inspired the faith of Mary. "Hail, full of
grace, the Lord is with you ..."
