Thought for the Day – 19 May

St Celestine V tasted bitterly his own failure but this did not prevent him from being a saint.   When he realised that he was in the wrong place, he quickly did something about it, whatever the consequences.   To admit failure, particularly in a place of importance and public scrutiny, takes a rare kind of courage and that kind of courage is the stuff that saints are made of.  Say no more!

St Pope Celestine V, please pray for us, that we may have the courage to admit our failures.



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. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and bless you 🙏
