Thought for the Day – 30 May

Like Jesus’ life, Joan of Arc’s life seemed to end in failure.   But like Jesus, to love God means to always obey His will.   She said with total confidence and abandonment: “I entrust myself to my Creator God, I love Him with my whole heart”.   One of the best known texts of the first trial has to do with this:  “Asked if she knew that she was in God’s grace, she replied:  ‘If I am not, may it please God to put me in it; if I am, may it please God to keep me there’”   It is this fidelity we should seek – this mission which Joan seemed to know would destroy her, still for her it was to carry out God’s work, regardless of the effects on her life.   May we too seek this total fidelity and self-giving to God for this life of ours, it is not ours but has been given to us by grace of His love.

St Joan of Arc, pray for us!

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.
