Thought for the Day – – The Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

We can see every human birth as a call for new hope in the world.   The love of two human beings has joined with God in his creative work.   The loving parents have shown hope in a world filled with travail.   The new child has the potential to be a channel of God’s love and peace to the world.

This is all true in a magnificent way in Mary.   If Jesus is the perfect expression of God’s love, Mary is the foreshadowing of that love.  If Jesus has brought the fullness of salvation, Mary is its dawning.

Birthday celebrations bring happiness to the celebrant as well as to family and friends. Next to the birth of Jesus, Mary’s birth offers the greatest possible happiness to the world. Each time we celebrate her birth, we can confidently hope for an increase of peace in our hearts and in the world at large.  (Fr Don Miller OFM)

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. "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.
