Thought for the Day – 16 September – The Memorial of Sts Cornelius & Cyprian

It seems fairly true to say that almost every possible false doctrine has been proposed at some time or other in the history of the Church.   Men like Cornelius and Cyprian were God’s instruments in helping the Church find a prudent path between extremes of rigorism and laxity.   They are part of the Church’s ever-living stream of tradition, ensuring the continuance of what was begun by Christ and evaluating new experiences through the wisdom and experience of those who have gone before.
Cornelius and Cyprian encouraged each other to lead virtuous, self-sacrificing and loving lives for God.    There is no greater gift that one friend can offer to another.    Today let us think of ways to help our friends grow closer to God.

Sts Cornelius and Cyprian, pray for us!

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.
