Quote of the Day – 12 December – The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe
“When she appeared to St Juan Diego,
her face was that of a mestiza (mixed race) woman
and her clothes were full of symbols
of the indigenous culture.
Following the example of Jesus,
Mary is close to her children.
She accompanies them on their way,
as a solicitous mother and shares
the joys and hopes, sufferings and anxieties
of the people of God, who are called to form part
of all the peoples of the earth….
The appearance of the image of the Virgin
on the tilma of Juan Diego was a prophetic sign
of an embrace, Mary’s embrace….”
Pope Francis – 2014
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.
