NOVENA in Honour of and preparation for, the Feast of the Transfiguration of our Lord – Day One – 28 July

NOVENA  Transfiguration of our Lord – Day One – 28 July

Explanation of this Novena here:

The Revelation of Christ’s Divine Glory

First Day: Today is a Joyful Day
One day Jesus left Nazareth, His hometown and lived in Capernaum.   During that time it was a big city, not distant form Nazareth.   The decision entailed a gesture of farewell to His mother and His town mates.   Everyone making a decision says goodbye and gives up something.   A vocation of service always signifies some form of sacrifice.   It is the price of the Kingdom of God.

Mary, our mother, like her son, was growing in her faith, her understanding of Jesus’s vocation and her acceptance of the mission God destined for her son.   For her, this process meant uncertainties, sufferings, fears and anxieties, just as for many mothers who share with their son’s commitment to fight for justice and risk their lives.

Let us Pray:

God of life and glory, Your son was revealed in splendour before He suffered death upon the cross;  grant that we, beholding His majesty, may be strengthened to follow Him and be changed into His likeness from glory to glory;   for He lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God now and forever. Amen




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! 🙏
