Thought for the Day – 3 July

St Bridget was an exceedingly active and busy person, besides her deep and mystical life of prayer and communion with God.  Her maid, nevertheless told others after the Saint’s death, that she was “kind and meek to every creature and that she had a smiling face” regardless of what we would today consider to be the ‘stress’ of her activity.   Truly holy people are gentle with others, eminently kind and compassionate toward all and this is the first sign of genuine holiness.   How I treat others, is pretty much a mirror of what is going on in my heart.  If I aim to see God’s face in all and my heart is on fire with love of Him, then how I treat others will shine forth and reflect this love!

St Bridget of Sweden, 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.
