Quote/s of the Day – 1 October – The Memorial of St Thérèse of the Child Jesus (1873-1897) Doctor of the Church
“Jesus set the book of nature before me and I saw
that all the flowers He has created are lovely.
The splendour of the rose and the whiteness of the lily
do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm.
I realised that, if every tiny flower wanted to be a rose,
spring would lose its loveliness and there would be no wildflowers
to make the meadows gay.
It is just the same in the world of souls – which is the garden of Jesus.
He has created the great saints, who are like the lilies and the roses
but He has also created much lesser saints and they must be content
to be the daisies or the violets which rejoice His eyes,
whenever He glances down.
Perfection consists in doing His will,
in being that which He wants us to be.
Jesus, help me to simplify my life by learning what you want me to be –
and becoming that person.”
St Thérèse – (Story of a Soul)
“Oh! no, you will see, it will be like a shower of roses.
After my death, you will go to the mail box
and you will find many consolations.”
St Thérèse of the Child Jesus (1873-1897)
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.
