Thought for the Day – 27 April

Her work was part of her religion and she often remarked that a lazy servant was lacking in a religious spirit.   She was put in charge of the children of the house and in time was appointed housekeeper. But she did not limit her work to household duties.  She visited prisons, the sick and the poor and was the only one in the house who could subdue the violent tempr of the head of the household.   She became a familiar figure in Lucca, making her rounds and extending love to as many as she could.
The life of St Zita shows that fidelity to ordinary duties is a sure way to holiness.    She was simply a servant girl but she made her work a song of praise to God and her whole life an expression of religious devotion.    Her life was full of the ordinary and this is what made her a saint.   That kind of holiness is within the reach of all of us!

St Zita, pray for us!




Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman 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 is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
