Quote/s of the Day – 30 September
The Memorial of St Jerome (347-419) Father and Doctor
“What Jerome is ignorant of,
no man has ever known.”
St Augustine of Hippo
“Every day we are changing,
every day we are dying
and yet we fancy ourselves eternal.”
“It is our part to seek,
His to grant what we ask;
ours to make a beginning,
His to bring it to completion;
ours to offer what we can,
His to finish what we cannot.”
“If Christ did not want to dismiss the Jews
without food in the desert for fear,
that they would collapse on the way,
it was to teach us that it is dangerous to try
to get to heaven without the Bread of Heaven.”
“Without doubt, the Lord grants all favours
which are asked of Him in Mass,
provided they be fitting for us.”
“To be a Christian is a great thing,
not merely to seem one.
And somehow or other, those please the world most,
who please Christ the least…
Christians are made, not born.”
“If a soul is not clothed with the teachings of the Church.
he cannot merit to have Jesus seated in him.”
“Good, better, best.
Never let it rest.
‘Til your good is better
and your better is best.”
St Jerome (347-419)
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.
