Thought for the Day – 26 June

Opus Dei, which means Work of God, emphasizes that men and women can become holy by performing their daily duties with a Christian spirit.   In his homily, Pope John Paul II emphasised the importance of every believer following God’s will, as had the newly sainted founder of Opus Dei.   “The Lord has a plan for each one of us.  Saints cannot even conceive of themselves outside of God’s plan: they live only to fulfill it.”

St Josemaria is a good example of what one person with conviction can do.   Granted, we all have differing personalities and talents but still each of us can do great things with the grace of God and, let us never forget “we are all called to be saints! – a saint is a person who lets the light shine through.”

Let us go forth!   St Josemaria, Pray for us!

a saint is a person who lets the light shine through

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.
