ONE MINUTE REFLECTION – 20 May
And coming to her, he said, “Hail, favoured one! The Lord is with you.”………..Luke 1:28
REFLECTION -“You must know that when you ‘hail’ Mary, she immediately greets you! Don’t think that she is one of those rude women of whom there are so many — on the contrary, she is utterly courteous and pleasant. If you greet her, she will answer you right away and converse with you!”……..St Bernardine of Siena
PRAYER – Lord God, You sent your angel to Mary and Your divine Son became man when she gave her consent to the angel’s announcement. Help me to give a perpetual consent to all that You will for me and a perpetual refusal to all that only I, in my pride, wish. Help me to see and understand and pray unceasingly to discern Your will. Holy Mary, Mother of God and our Mother, help us all. St Bernardine of Siena, please pray for us, amen.
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.
This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul.
"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.
