St Francis Xavier – 3 December

Today is the Memorial of the Patron of the Missions and, after St Paul, known as one of the greatest of all Missionaries. One of his most beloved attributes was his great love for his friends, most especially St Ignatius Loyola, St Peter Faber and the other founding members of the Society of Jesus.

He wrote:

“For my own great comfort and that I may have you constantly in mind, I have cut from your letters to me your NAMES, written in your own hand and these I always carry about with me, together with the Vow of Professions I made, to be my solace and refreshment.”

“We, who are many, are one in body in Christ and individually we are members one of another.”….Romans 12:5

Think about your friends.  What can you do to make your friendships stronger?  How can we show them them that we cherish and love them?

St Francis Xavier, St Ignatius Loyola Pray for us!



Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and bless you 🙏
