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!

Dear Family of Mary!
January 25, 2018 "Dear children! May this time be for you a time of prayer, so that the Holy Spirit, through prayer, may descend upon you and give you conversion. Open your hearts and read the Sacred Scripture, that through the testimonies you also may be closer to God. Above everything, little children, seek God and the things of God and leave earthly ones to the earth, because Satan is attracting you to the dust and sin. You are called to holiness and created for Heaven; therefore, seek Heaven and the things of Heaven. Thank you for having responded to my call."
This message continues to guide be during this Lenten journey that we are on together. Our Lady gave us the tools to make our Lent a blessed time of renewal. As usual with her simple words she says great things.
Time of Prayer - Lent is a time, 6 weeks, in which we can pray with all our hearts, focused on the sufferings of our Head, Jesus.
The Holy Spirit - It is through the Holy Spirit that we received nourishment in prayer, so that we can convert. Conversion is everything. Unless our hearts turn to God and away from selfishness, we will not find ourselves in Heaven.
Conversion is a gift - We do not manufacture our own conversion. It is a gift from God, that we open up to. Just witness the testimony of Fr. Donald Calloway which is showing on Mary TV this week in Fruit of Medjugorje. He was plucked out of Hell by the gift of conversion that came to him through Mary of Medjugorje.
Sacred Scripture has testimonies! - In the Scriptures we here the first testimonies of the first believers!! We see them responding to the call to conversion through Jesus. It is a gift to convert!
Seek God and leave earthly things - Where do we find peace, joy, healing, reconciliation, hope, love, heaven and eternal life? Seek God and the things of God!
I am not able to keep up with my reflections right now due to a family need. So I will probably not send reflections until February 25, when I send the next monthly message. I am sorry I didn't let you know sooner, but time did not allow. So thank you all for joining me in reflection on Our Lady of Medjugorje and her messages. I will continue the reflections starting February 25, 2018!
I am praying for all of you as I travel. Blessings!!
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan (c)Mary TV 2018
PS. Mike Nolan heads up pilgrim-medj.com, taking groups to Medjugorje. He has two pilgrimages coming up - April and June. He says the airfares are good right now, time to book tickets!!
