Thought for the Day – 12 February

Today, Saint Julian is considered the patron saint of hospitality, hotel workers, ferrymen, travelers, circus performers, hunters and murderers.   His life story, while considered legend, is important for its focus on his faith in the Lord, as well as his dedication to charity.   Through his service, he brought the poor, the sick and the marginalised to God, through the mirroring of Christ’s love on earth.   The legend provides further hope to sinners, like ourselves—if the Lord can forgive a murderer, He surely can forgive us our sins.

The lives of the saints should inspire us.   How have we sought to repent for our wrongdoings?   How might we turn our sin into service?   Our Lady of Lourdes implores us to pray for sinners—penance, penance, penance!   Our Lord, through the holy words of His Son, directs us to love and serve others.   Where in our lives could we be more hospitable?

St Julian the Hospitaller, 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.
