Thought for the Day – 28 September – The Memorial of St Wenceslaus

Good example lives on.   St Wenceslaus’ generosity to the poor was legendary and his sanctity known everywhere.
He made peace with his mother so that he could govern and with the surrounding monarchs.   He worked with the Church, ended the persecution of the Christians, brought back exiled priests and built churches.   Wenceslaus set an example all could follow.   He gave alms to those who were poor and was just to those who were rich, he visited prisoners and promoted the religious and educational improvement of his people.

“Good King Wenceslaus” was able to incarnate his Christianity in a world filled with political unrest.   While we are often victims of violence of a different sort, we can easily identify with his struggle to bring harmony to society.   The call to become involved in social change and in political activity is addressed to Christians;  the values of the gospel are sorely needed today, the example of St Wenceslaus is still an inspiration to us all.

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.
