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!

One night in about the year 1113
* August 30 – Santa Maria de Carquere (Portugal)
* One night in about the year 1113
Henriques had been born a cripple, paralyzed from the knees down. A
knight by the name of Egas de Monis, the child’s governor and companion,
was a man of deep faith. He prayed fervently for the prince, seeking
the help of the Blessed Virgin that the boy’s legs might be straightened
through her intercession. …
One night in
about the year 1113, when the prince was four years old, Egas de Monis
put him to bed and fell asleep himself. Our Lady appeared and wakened
the governor, disclosing her identity: "I am the Virgin Mary." She told
him to go to a particular place in the hills above the Douro River that
she indicated where she said: "If you dig there you will find a church
that was built in my name. Place the child on the altar at night, and he
will recover because my Son wants, through that prince, to destroy many
enemies of the faith."
This was done
and, as promised by the Virgin Mary, the young prince was healed on the
altar of the newfound church of Carquere, now famous throughout
Portugal. The Church of Our Lady of Carquere, or Santa Maria de
Carquere, can still be visited in Spain.
