Quote of the Day – 6 December – The Memorial of St Nicholas (270-343)
“Once again St Nicholas Day
Has even come to our hideaway;
It won’t be quite as fun, I fear,
As the happy day we had last year.
Then we were hopeful,
no reason to doubt
That optimism would win the bout,
And by the time this year came round,
We’d all be free
and safe and sound.
Still, let’s not forget
it’s St Nicholas Day,
Though we’ve nothing left
to give away.
We’ll have to find something else to do:
So everyone please look in their shoe!”
Anne Frank – The Diary of a Young Girl
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.
