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 TV: September 13, 2017 Reflection - Give me your hands!
(c)Mateo Ivankovic 2016

Dear Family of Mary!
Jesus speaks to us today in the Gospel, straight talk about what matters:
he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said: "Blessed are you
poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you that hunger now,
for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you that weep now, for you shall
laugh. Blessed are you when men hate you, and when they exclude you and
revile you, and cast out your name as evil, on account of the Son of
"Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your
reward is great in heaven; for so their fathers did to the prophets. But
woe to you that are rich, for you have received your consolation. Woe
to you that are full now, for you shall hunger. Woe to you that laugh
now, for you shall mourn and weep. Woe to you, when all men speak well
of you, for so their fathers did to the false prophets." (Lk 6:20-26)
Our Lady, like her Son, also tells us like it is. She wants us to know what matters:
July 2, 2007 "Dear children! In the great love of God, I
come to you today to lead you on the way of humility and meekness. The
first station on that way, my children, is confession. Reject your
arrogance and kneel down before my Son. Comprehend, my children, that
you have nothing and you can do nothing. The only thing that you have
and that you possess is sin. Be cleansed and accept meekness and
humility. My Son could have won with strength, but He chose meekness,
humility and love. Follow my Son and give me your hands so that,
together, we may climb the mountain* and win. Thank you."*Our Lady referred to this as a spiritual climb.
What matters? Eternity with God in Heaven! How do
we get there? By repenting and by imitating Jesus, following Him,
walking His way, carrying our crosses, and growing in meekness and
humility. We will climb the mountain of holiness, and win!
