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, OUR MOTHER

Father Kevin Scallon RIP June 25, 2018
Requiescat in pacePadre
Medjugorje, July 3, 2018
Dear Children of Medjugorje, praise be to Jesus and Mary!
Father Kevin Scallon!
This great Irish disciple of Christ just
made his way to the Heavenly Father. Dear father Kevin has been one of
the best supporters of Our Lady so far. On the 37th Anniversary of the
apparitions of Medjugorje (June 25th), he was found lying on the floor
in his residence, in Florida.
evening before, as he said that he was not feeling too well, he decided
to stay home, pray the rosary and receive Holy Communion. These were his
last actions on earth. He was 83. Of course, we are happy for him that
he has now returned to the Lord whom he dedicated his life and ministry
to. But how we miss his gentle re-assuring presence here on earth!
However we will have a great advocate too in paradise guiding and
watching out for us just as he always did here.
will pray to Our Lady that she may "caress our souls" in this sorrowful
time for his family and close friends, especially for Sister Briege
McKenna who collaborated with him for 44 years, leading missions for
priests all over the world! May the offering of this deep mourning be
source of blessings for those who morn without knowing Jesus!
Kevin was a good friend of us, staying in our home almost each year,
joking and telling stories as a dad, also listening to each one of us
with the tenderness and the power of the Holy Spirit, especially in
One of our young sisters, Flavia, said, "
"Even if I didn't know Father Kevin very well, I love him
immensely. He was for me the example of the face of the Heavenly Father.
If I had to imagine the love of God the Father, I would compare it to
the love of Father Kevin's heart. Now, I have chosen him as my special
godfather, asking him to protect me and to lead me from Heaven!"
