Thought for the Day – 17 June

From his installation of showers for homeless Romans at the Vatican to his spontaneous meetings with the poor, Pope Francis has beautifully shown that the Church has a “preferential option for the poor,”.    The life and work of St Albert Chmielowski, likewise, reminds us that a particular vocation of the Christian is to love the poor, marginalised, weak and those with disabilities.   In today’s self-centred age, when professional success is seen as the greatest good and money is the driving force of our lives, St. Albert Chmielowski — who gave up the life of a celebrity painter to serve Christ by helping the poor — challenges us to ask if we focus too much on worldly goals and ignore life’s true meaning.   “But seek first the kingdom [of God] and his righteousness,* and all these things will be given you besides.” (Matthew 6:33).

St Albert Chmielowski, 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.
