Thought for the Day – 7 November – The Memorial of Blessed Anthony Baldinucci SJ (1665-1717)

Today, 7 November we celebrate the feast day of Blessed Antonio Baldinucci (1665-1717), a Jesuit missionary who, despite failing health, served the Lord with every ounce of strength and love he possessed.  While his heart lay in overseas missions, Anthony obediently remained in Italy, giving great missions, reaching many through his preaching and example and working tirelessly for the conversion of souls.   His simple faith and acceptance of the will of the Lord, inspire us today to examine our lives and hopes… and then measure how those relate to what the Lord would have us do.
His words “That God may be moved by my sufferings to touch the hearts of my hearers” are an inspiration to us when we wonder how to offer our sufferings to God. Perhaps ours would be “that God may be moved by my sufferings and use my life as an example to the hearts of sinners.”

Passionate Catholic. Being 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 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. "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.
