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!

Prisoners and the possessed are delivered in great numbers - A Moment with Mary
* June 29 – Our Lady of Laghet (Laghet, France)
* Prisoners and the possessed are delivered in great numbers
Prisoners and the possessed are delivered in great numbers
a rocky cliff at Laghet (above the city of Nice, France), there has
been since the 15th century a small chapel surrounded by a few houses
where farmers and herdsmen used to live. It was restored in 1625 by a
priest who installed a beautiful statue of the Virgin that is still
visible today in the church above the altar.
1652, the Virgin Mary manifested her presence in this chapel by
spectacular healings. The release of prisoners and the deliverance of
the possessed occurred in great numbers. The news spread, attracting
people from the whole region. The bishop of Nice appointed a commission
of theologians to examine the events. On December 20, 1653, the
commission recognized the authenticity of the miracles. A larger church
was later inaugurated on November 21, 1656. San Francesco Maria da Camporosso

Maria da Camporosso was cured as a child through the intercession of the
Virgin of Laghet. Later, as a Capuchin friar, he became the apostle of
Genoa, a city that honors him with the name of Padre Santo. As for the
good Pope John (future Saint John XXIII), then nuncio in France, he
presided over the celebrations of the third centenary of the shrine of
Laghet in 1952. It was he who canonized Padre Santo in 1962.
