Thought for the Day – 20 December – The Memorial of St Dominic de Silos (1000-1073)

St Dominic of Silos came to know God in the solitude of a shepherd boy.    It was this love of solitude that drew him into monastic life where he could be alone with his God.   Most of us are so busy we scarcely have time for Sunday Mass.   We should cultivate a little solitude, too.   It is easy to form habits – is it not?   Especially those that give us pleasure. Our greatest pleasure should be communing with God it too becomes a habit – this one is indispensable!

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.
