The Perfect Man is a Perfect Son, Perfectly Obedient to the Fourth Commandment

"There are five types of offenses and blasphemies committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary: 
  •         Blasphemies against the Immaculate Conception.

  •         Blasphemies against Her Perpetual Virginity.

  •         Blasphemies against Her Divine Maternity, in refusing at the same time to recognize Her as the Mother of men.

  •         The blasphemies of those who publicly seek to sow in the hearts of children indifference or scorn, or even hatred of this Immaculate Mother.

  •         The offenses of those who outrage Her directly in Her holy images. Here, My daughter, is the reason why the Immaculate Heart of Mary inspired Me to ask for this little act of Reparation ... 

It is also true that the gravest sins against the Most Holy Virgin are first of all sins against faith. This important lesson must be kept in mind."

--Sister Lucia of Fatima, writing to her confessor a message given to her by Our Lord 


In a world of darkness, we have been given a means to dwell in the light.  Why not seek refuge in devotion to the Immaculate Heart as Our Lord desires?  Why not listen to the Virgen, who offers us a means of finding mercy from God?

I was talking with someone the other day who venerates the Virgin Mary and holds her in high esteem. A faithful Catholic, he wonders, though, why the Church, as a means of evangelization, does not talk more about the Holy Spirit to appeal to Protestants, many of whom talk about the Holy Spirit all the time. He thinks that if the Church talked publicly more about the Hold Spirit than Mary it might result in more converts. He also wonders why the Church does not talk much about God the Father. For Catholics, he says, it is Jesus and Mary and not much about the other two Members of the Trinity. Anybody with any advise as to what I might say to him?
