Quote/s of the Day – 19 November – The First World Day of the Poor
“Let us love, not with words but with deeds.”
“As long as Lazarus lies at the door of our homes
there can be no justice or social peace.”
“Blessed are the open hands that embrace
the poor and help them – they are hands
that bring hope.
Blessed are the hands that reach beyond
every barrier of culture, religion and nationality
and pour the balm of consolation over
the wounds of humanity.
Blessed are the open hands that ask nothing
in exchange, with no “ifs” or “buts” or “maybes”:
they are hands that call down God’s blessing
upon their brothers and sisters.

“If you want to honour the body of Christ,
do not scorn it when it is naked;
do not honour the Eucharistic Christ
with silk vestments and then,
leaving the church, neglect the other Christ
suffering from cold and nakedness”
St John Chrysostom (347-407)
Father and Doctor of the Church – (Hom. in Matthaeum, 50.3: PG 58)
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.
