Quote/s of the Day – 7 November “On Achieving Sanctity”

“Come, brothers, let us at length spur ourselves on.
We must rise again with Christ, we must seek the world
which is above and set our mind on the things of heaven.
Let us long for those who are longing for us,
hasten to those who are waiting for us
and ask those who look for our coming to intercede for us.
We should not only want to be with the saints,
we should also hope to possess their happiness.
While we desire to be in their company,
we must also earnestly seek to share in their glory.
Do not imagine that there is anything harmful
in such an ambition as this;
there is no danger in setting our hearts on such glory.”

St Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153) Doctor of the Churchcome brothers - st bernard - 7 nov 2017

“Holiness does not consist of doing more difficult things every day
but doing things with greater love every day.
Our great desires for holiness have to be expressed
by persevering in small things.
This has to be your ambition:
to persevere in the exact fulfilment of your present obligations,
because that work – humble, monotonous, small –
is prayer expressed in deeds.
And it prepares us to receive the grace for that other work –
great, broad and deep – about which we dream:
to place Christ at the summit of all human activities.”

St Josemaria Escriva (1902-1975)holiness does not consist - st josemaria - 7 nov 2017

“Many little things done with love and for love
comprise our treasure for this or that day,
which we will carry with us into eternity.
Our interior life is normally nourished
by little things carried out with love and attention.”

St John Paul (1920-2005)many little things - st john paul - 7 nov 2017



Passionate Catholic. 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. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
