Thought for the Day – 8 April

Many faithful Catholics resisted the French Revolution’s anticlericalism and the destruction of the church.    But perhaps the most outstanding opponent of the Jacobins, and certainly the most unusual, was St. Julie Billiart, for she was paralysed and conducted her defiance from her bed.   Overcoming obstacles seems to be part of the business of holiness and sainthood.  St Julie was not only paralysed and crippled but she suffered complete loss of speech!   Somehow, she managed to lead and inspire others in spite of her infirmities.   Nothing is impossible for those who love and trust God – miracles happen and with God and doing His work, remarkable things are accomplished!   Each of us has limitations but the worst malady any of us can suffer is the spiritual paralysis that keeps us from doing God’s work on earth.   So what is stopping us?

St Julie Billiart, 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.
