Thought for the Day – 7 February
Perhaps we wonder how we could possibly endure the sufferings that the martyrs suffered, such terrible and prolonged sufferings and where would we find the strength and endurance to suffer to death, for our faith? The martyrs do not endure by their own strength and they are well aware of this. If that time should ever come to us, the strength would be given us by God. Believe it!
Our Lady, Queen of Martyrs and all Martyrs of the Faith, Pray for us!
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.
This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul.
"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.

Thank you for this. It is a question I struggle with as I can’t imagine bearing what the martyrs did, and then wonder if my faith is yet where it needs to be.

Thanks for the comment Larry and for being such an inspiration to me as always! I have come to know that if we hold onto the hem of His garment, we DO find all the strength we need. We all have seen the truth of that in small ways, we WILL too in big ways if ever faced with such persecution. Let us pray for such faith every day.
