Posted in MORNING Prayers, SAINT of the DAY

Thought for the Day – 17 April

St Stephen Harding had to search long for the kind of life he wished to live for God but he persevered and God rewarded his search.   He wanted to live the life of a simple monk but God had other plans.   By his fidelity to his chosen vocation, he became the father of a great order, enriching the Church with his own holiness and generations of the Cistercian monks life of prayer.   The lesson – don’t give up, keep asking the Lord to show you where you should be, for His glory.

St Stephen Harding, 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.
