Thought for the Day – 10 September – The Memorial of St Nicholas of Tolentino

Those hardened in their crimes, made fun of him but Nicholas would not be intimidated, even though soldiers would unsheath their swords and fence whilst he was speaking.
He was kindness itself, going into the slums of Tolentino, visiting the sick and bed-ridden, settling feuds, caring for children, chatting with criminals and begging them not to be cruel to others.
Gradually, this kindness achieved results and even hardened criminals were converted by St Nicholas’ gentleness.
His remarkable powers of persuasion and his charismatic personality, achieved amazing results in those who had been written off.
Gentleness and kindness accomplishes conversion!
St Nicholas pray that we too may be granted the grace of gentle and kindly nicholas of tolentino pray for us.2


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.
