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!

Jocelyne Khoueiry is now 60. This resistance fighter has long laid down
her arms. She spends her days in Jounieh, Lebanon, at the John Paul II
Center, a social structure she founded to promote life, the family and
sum up my life with these words: it has been a journey with the Virgin,"
she explained. It was in the "dark tunnel" of the war that this young
girl who was only a nominal Christian discovered the presence of God.
"My faith is the faith of Peter!" The Maronite saying slaps like a flag
in the mouth of this passionate admirer of the Virgin. "We need Mary.
This mother figure is very much alive. She must be present in the city,
in the Church and in every home."
participate in the Synod on the Middle East in 2010, Jocelyne wondered
what to say in her short 2-minute allotted time. "I proposed to entrust
the Middle East to the heart of the Virgin Mary." This was accomplished
two years later by Pope Benedict XVI. The Lebanese woman is clear:
‘‘When Mary is there, blessings return, peaceful solutions emerge,
violence vanishes, and people recover their rights.’’
