The Holy Spirit
Only one thing is important: eternal salvation.   Only one thing, therefore, is to be feared: sin.   Sin is the result of ignorance, weakness and indifference.   The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Light, of Strength and of Love.   With His sevenfold gifts He enlightens the mind, strengthens the will and inflames the heart with the love of God.   To ensure our salvation we ought to invoke the Divine Spirit daily, because the Spirit comes to us in our needs.   When we don’t know what to say, it is the Spirit who speaks within us.

The Gift of Piety
The gift of Piety creates in our hearts a deep affection for God as our most loving Father. It inspires us to love and respect for His sake all people and things consecrated to him, as well as those who act with His Divine authority, Mary Mother of the Saviour and the Saints, the Church and its visible head the Pope, our parents and superiors, our country and its rulers.   The person who is filled with the gift of Piety finds the practice of the faith, not a burdensome duty but a delightful service.   Where there is love, there is no labour.

Come and fill me, O Blessed Spirit of Piety.   Possess my heart.   Purify me.   Humble me. Enkindle in me such a love for God that I may be satisfied only in His service and lovingly submit to all legitimate authority for the sake of Your kingdom.   Make me increasingly uncomfortable with everything that is evil, so that I turn away from it and live only in You. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be to the Father

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! 🙏
