Thought for the Day – 20 May

Thought for the Day – 20 May

In St Bernardine’s day, cursing was almost part of the common speech and he combated it by promoting devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus.
He even had cards printed inscribed with the Holy Name and they were more popular than playing cards..
He knew that you do not root out an evil merely preaching against it, instead you must put something good in its place.
That is a piece of wisdom it would do us well to follow. Β  Perhaps our attempts should be garnered universally to root out the sacrilegious habit of great portions of the world, which use the name of God and of Jesus in vain, so often with every sentence, so much so, that in public it is now an accepted practice!

St Bernardine of Siena, please pray for us!

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. 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. 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 I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! πŸ™
