Thought for the Day – 19 February

Disaster does not always have to be the ruin of everything and very terrible blows of bad fortune can lead to great blessings.   St Conrad of Piacenza’s bad fortune made him reflect on his own way of life.   A man was almost executed through his neglect and he realised that God deserved better, in fact God deserved the very best of him.   The rest is the story of a man who made way for the Holy Spirit, who cleared the path for His entry and thus found his joy in God and became a delightful friend to all, a conduit of love and miracles.   It is a lesson to be pondered.

St Conrad of Piacenza, 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.
