One Minute Reflection – 30 September – The Memorial of St Jerome (347-419) Father and Doctor
In your fight against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood…..Hebrews 12:4
REFLECTION – “Martyrdom does not consist only in dying for one’s faith.
Martyrdom also consists, in serving God, with love and purity of heart,
every day of one’s life.”…St Jerome
PRAYER – Dear and Holy God, let me offer You all my daily struggles against sin and evil.
Grant me the strength to resist even to the shedding of blood, if it should be required of me.
Sustain me ever more with Your word and help me to find in it, the source of life.
St Jerome Pray for us. Amen
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.
