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:

Mary TV: June 14, 2018 Reflection - Forgive and ask for forgiveness!
June 14, 2018
Dear Family of Mary!
Today, in our Gospel, Jesus warns us about the poison of
unforgiveness and lack of reconciliation between us. He makes is very
clear that if we hold on to anger and resentment we will be ruining our
own lives. Our Lady speaks directly to this pervasive problem for us
humans as well.
Here is the Gospel for today- Matthew 5: 20-26:
tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and
Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. "You have heard
that it was said to the men of old, `You shall not kill; and whoever
kills shall be liable to judgment.' But I say to you that everyone who
is angry with his brother shall be liable to judgment; whoever insults
his brother shall be liable to the council, and whoever says, `You
fool!' shall be liable to the hell of fire.
So if you are
offering your gift at the altar, and there remember that your brother
has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and
go; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your
gift. Make friends quickly with your accuser, while you are going with
him to court, lest your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the
judge to the guard, and you be put in prison; truly, I say to you, you
will never get out till you have paid the last penny. (Matthew 5:20-26)
And Our Lady's message:
September 2, 2010 "Dear children; I am beside you because I
desire to help you to overcome trials, which this time of purification
puts before you. My children, one of those is not to forgive, and not to
ask for forgiveness. Every sin offends love and distances you from it
and love is my Son. Therefore, my children, if you desire to walk with
me towards the peace of God's love, you must learn to forgive and to ask
for forgiveness. Thank you."
Our Lady's words are so kind and gentle. May we respond to her
desire to help us in this time of trial, this time on earth. She can
give us the inner strength to face up to our anger and resentment and
our wrong doing, and make things right! We do not want to be distanced
from Jesus! On the contrary we want to get as close to Jesus as we
possibly can. Forgiving and asking forgiveness is the way!
