One Minute Reflection – 21 October – The Memorial of St Hilarion of Gaza (c 291-371)
Jesus said to his disciples:
“No one who prefers father or mother to me is worthy of me.”…Matthew 10:37
REFLECTION – To believe in God – for Christians, does not simply mean to believe that God exists, nor merely to believe that He is true.
It means to believe by loving, to believe by abandoning oneself to God, uniting and conforming oneself to Him.”… St Anthony of Padua (1195-1231) Doctor of the Church
PRAYER – Holy Father, grant me an operative faith, a faith that will move mountains. Englighten my soul with Your Light, Goodness, Power and Wisdom. Let my faith be an image of You by lively deeds and love and by conforming myself to Your Will in all things. St Hilarion from such a young age you searched for complete closeness and abandonment to God, please pray that we may manifest such a true faith, 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.
