Quote/s of the Day – 13 September –  St John Chrysostom (347-407) Doctor – “John of the Golden Mouth”

“When you are before the altar where Christ reposes,
you ought no longer to think that you are amongst men;
but believe that there are troops of angels
and archangels standing by you and trembling with respect
before the sovereign Master of Heaven and earth.
Therefore, when you are in church, be there in silence,
fear and veneration.”when you are before the altar - st john chrysostom

“It is not man that causes the things offered to become
the Body and Blood of Christ but He who was crucified for us,
Christ Himself. The priest, in the role of Christ,
pronounces these words, but their Power and Grace are God’s.
This is my body, He says. This word transforms the things offered.”it is not man that causes - st john chrysostom

“Let us, then, come back from that table like lions breathing out fire,
thus becoming terrifying to the Devil and remaining mindful of our Head
and of the love He has shown for us. . .
This Blood, when worthily received, drives away demons and puts them
at a distance from us, and even summons to us angels and the Lord of angels. . .
This Blood, poured out in abundance, has washed the whole world clean. . .
This is the price of the world;  by it Christ purchased the Church. . .
This thought will check in us unruly passions.
How long, in truth, shall we be attached to present things?
How long shall we remain asleep?
How long shall we not take thought for our own salvation?
Let us remember what privileges God has bestowed on us,
let us give thanks,
let us glorify Him,
not only by faith but also by our very works.”let us then come from that table - st john chrysostom

“Let the mouth also fast from disgraceful speeches and railings.
For what does it profit if we abstain from fish and fowl
and yet bite and devour our brothers and sisters?
The evil speaker eats the flesh of his brother
and bites the body of his neighbour!”

St John Chrysostom (347-407) Father & Doctor – “John of the Golden Mouth”let the mouth also fast from disgraceful-st john chrysostom

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman 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 is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
