Thought for the Day – 13 June

St Anthony of Padua was a tireless preacher, teacher, defender of the faith.   He brought many back to God by his example and words.   But first he gave himself to God completely.   Like all saints, he is a perfect example of turning one’s life over to Christ. God did with Anthony as God pleased — and what God pleased was a life of spiritual power and brilliance that still attracts admiration today.   He whom popular devotion has nominated as finder of lost objects found himself by losing himself totally to the providence of God.   Preaching was simply the overflow of his own inner life.   For all of us, if God comes first and the cultivation of intimacy with Him, then everything else flows from this, as water flows from its source.

St Anthony of Padua, brilliant star, 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! 🙏
