Thought for the Day – 16 February

St Gilbert of Sempringham could have lived a life of ease from the income of his benefices but he chose to give all to the poor and to dedicate his life to teaching.  Accidentally (though of course, it was God’s plan all along), he stumbled upon his life’s work and brought many to God.   We never know how God is going to use us and by our devotion and fidelity, we have to remain open to whatever task He sets before us.   “I come Lord, to do Your Will.” 

St Gilbert Pray for us!



Passionate Catholic. Being 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 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.
