Thought for the Day – 19 December

In a very short pontificate – just around 4 years – St Pope Anastasius I faced two big problems.  The first was Origen and the second the Donatists.  He dealt with them both effectively by conference with his brother Bishops, to confirm his own understanding.

It is not unlike the situations we ourselves face on a daily basis, living as we do in a secular society.  And how do we resolve such issues – we are not all theologians/apologists or debaters?

We have everything we need in the Catechism of the Catholic Church – every single answer is there!  Do you own a copy?  It should be by now rather well-worn!

St Pope Anastasius I 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.
