Thought for the Day – 8 June

May the Holy Spirit help us put into practice the choices of Jacques Berthieu:  his passion for a challenging mission that led him to another country, another language and another culture, his personal attachment to the Lord expressed in  prayer, his pastoral zeal, which was simultaneously a fraternal love of the faithful entrusted to his care and a commitment to lead them higher on the Christian way and finally, a life lived as gift, a choice lived out every day until the death which definitively configured him to Christ.

It is the choice we must all make – let us see our lives too as a missionary, in amongst the daily norms and battles, for viewed through our Christian eyes, our encounters are not that much different to that strange island where St Jacques Berthieu carried out his vocation.

St Jacques Berthieu, pray for us!



Passionate Catholic. Being 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 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.
