Thought for the Day – 28 February
After having renounced everything, one can still worship other idols, such as fame and name. To be able to enjoy ‘hundred-fold’, one must detach oneself from ‘self’. A true disciple is not the one who has left all material possessions to follow Jesus, rather the one who has given up the home of self-prestige, brother hatred, sister gossiping, mother backbiting, father pride and child selfishness. When a person is free from such entanglements, she or he will receive a hundred times more the home of humanness, brother love, sister charity, mother understanding, father humility and child generosity. This is the way one obtains eternal life. It is easier to be a philanthropic than a disciple. The former gives from abundance and earns worldwide praises; the latter strives hard to let go the wealth of ego and receives mockery and persecution. Only those who walk the talk can teach the value of renunciation and commitment. (Sr Virginia Rajakumari SAB)

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.
