Thought for the Day – 18 May

St Pope John I tried to bring peace between king and emperor but succeeded also in endangering his own life.    So it seems to be lot of peacemakers.   However, he was willing to take the risk and so should we be in trying to reconcile others.   Sometimes, we succeed but oftentimes, both sides turn against the striving peacemaker.   That is the risk we take but that is also the challenge of being a Christian. “If you find that the world hates you, know it has hated me before you” (John 15:18). St Pope John I, please pray for us that we too might have your courage in the face of adversity and persecution.

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.
