Thought for the Day – 12 September – Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary

“The Virgin Mother is constantly present
on this journey of faith of the People of God toward the Light….
All her earthly life was a “pilgrimage of faith”.
For like us, she walked in the shadows and hoped for things unseen.
She knew the contradictions of our earthly life.
She was promised that her Son would be given David’s throne
but, at His birth, there was no room even at the inn.
Mary still believed.
The angel said her child would be called the Son of God
but, she would see Him slandered, betrayed, condemned and left to die as a thief on the Cross.

Even yet, Mary “trusted that the Lord’s words to her would be fulfilled (Luke 1:45)
and that “nothing is impossible wiuth God.” (Luke 1:37)

This woman of faith, Mary of Nazareth, the Mother of God,
has been given to us as a model in our pilgrimage of faith.
From Mary, we learn to surrender to God’s Will in all things.

I entrust you all to Mary, most holy, our Mother in heaven,
the Star of the Sea of our life..pray to her every day..!
Give your hand to Mary most holy, so that she may lead
you to receive Jesus.”
St John Paul (Ingenamenti, 6 October 1979)

Blessed Virgin Mary, Star of the Sea, Holy One, our Queen our Mother, Pray for us!

blessed virgin holy mother 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. 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! 🙏
