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.

Adoration in Medjugorje
May 30, 2018
Dear Family of Mary!
"Dear children! In this peaceless time, I am calling you to have more trust in God who is your Father in Heaven and who has sent me to lead you to Him. You, open your hearts to the gifts which He desires to give you and, in the silence of your heart, adore my Son Jesus who has given His life so that you may live in eternity - where He desires to lead you. May your hope be the joy of a meeting with the Most High in everyday life. Therefore, I am calling you: do not neglect prayer because prayer works miracles. Thank you for having responded to my call." (May 25, 2018)
We all love to attend Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. It is especially powerful in Medjugorje. Thousands of people remain in complete silence for an hour or more, with only intermittent songs and prayers. Most of that time is spent in silence, gazing upon the Eucharist displayed in the large Monstrance of the outdoor Altar. It seems that time stops. No one wants the Adoration to end. It is stunning!
But Our Lady tells us something equally stunning in this message. "...in the silence of your heart, adore my Son Jesus who has given His life so that you may live in eternity - where He desires to lead you." She tells us that we can adore her Son Jesus in the silence of our hearts, any time, anywhere! We can gaze upon our Savior in the silence of our hearts because He reigns there. He is waiting there for us to behold Him. He is present within each of us, longing for our attention. We can adore Him in the silence of our own hearts!
Our Lady told St. Faustina the very same thing:
November 29, . The Mother of God has taught me how to prepare for the Feast of Christmas. I saw Her today, without the Infant Jesus. She said to me: My daughter, strive after silence and humility, so that Jesus, who dwells in your heart continuously, may be able to rest. Adore Him in your heart; do not go out from your inmost being. My daughter, I shall obtain for you the grace of an interior life which will be such that, without ever leaving that interior life, you will be able to carry out all your external duties with even greater care. Dwell with Him continuously in your own heart. He will be your strength. Communicate with creatures only in so far as is necessary and is required by your duties. You are a dwelling place pleasing to the living God, in you He dwells continuously with love and delight. And the living presence of God, which you experience in a more vivid and distinct way, will confirm you, my daughter, in the things I have told you. Try to act in this way until Christmas Day, and then He himself will make known to you in what way you will be communing and uniting yourself with Him. (Diary 785)
Such adoration could change our lives. To be able to adore Jesus always, to be in deep communion of spirit with Him all day long! Well it would be heaven. I believe that it is possible, that we can adore Jesus in just this way, and that it is essential if we are to be led into eternity, to live forever with Him. We must start that life now!
Dearest Mother, obtain for us the grace of adoring Jesus in our hearts. We want to receive that grace and live it always!!
