Quote/s of the Day – 21 October
“Take in one hand a sponge full of water
and in the other a little pebble – press them equally.
Nothing will come out of the pebble
but out of the sponge will come abundance of water.
The sponge is the soul filled with the Holy Spirit
and the stone is the cold and hard heart
which is not inhabited by the Holy Spirit.”
St John Vianney (1786-1859)
“To live according to the Holy Spirit
means to live by faith and hope and charity –
to allow God to take possession of our lives
and to change our hearts,
to make us resemble him more and more.”
St Josemaria Escriva (1902-1975)
“It is not the actual physical exertion that counts
towards one’s progress, nor the nature of the task
but by the spirit of faith with which it is undertaken.”
St Francis Xavier (1506-1552)
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.
