Thought for the Day – 17 May

The life of St Paschal Baylon is one of simple adoration of the Lord.   He recognised the importance of spending time before Our Saviour, in contemplation of His passion, love, and sacrifice—in the earthly presence of God.   Through his devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, St Paschal was graced with wisdom beyond his education and obedience and charity beyond measure.   His life inspires us to greater communion with the Lord, leading us to His spiritual treasures. As prayer before the Blessed Sacrament occupied much of Saint Francis’ energy.   Most of his letters were to promote devotion to the Eucharist. St Paschal shared this concern.   An hour in prayer before our Lord in the Eucharist could teach all of us a great deal!   Many holy and busy Catholics today, across the world, find that their lives in every respect, are enriched by these minutes regularly spent in prayer and meditation.

O God, You filled St. Paschal with a wondrous love for the sacred mysteries of Your Body and Blood.   May we draw from this Divine Banquet the same spiritual riches he received.   St Paschal Baylon Pray for us amen!

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.
