Quote/s of the Day – 29 December – Fifth Day of the Octave and the Memorial of St Thomas a Becket

“If all the swords in England were pointed
against my head,
your threats would not move me.
I am ready to die for my Lord,
that in my blood the
Church may obtain liberty and peace.”

“Many are needed to plant and water
what has been planted now,
that the faith has spread so far
and there are so many people…
No matter who plants or waters,
God gives no harvest,
unless what is planted is the faith of Peter
and unless he agrees to Peter’s teachings.”

“All important questions that arise
among God’s people
are referred to the judgment of Peter,
in the person for the Roman Pontiff.
Under him the ministers of Mother Church
exercise the powers committed to them,
each in his own sphere of responsibility.”quots st thomas a becket - 29 dec 2017

“Hereafter, I want you to tell me,
candidly and in secret,
what people are saying about me.
And if you see anything in me,
that you regard as a fault,
feel free to tell me in private.
For from now on, people will talk about me
but not to me.
It is dangerous for men in power,
if no-one dares to tell them, when they go wrong.” 
 (St Thomas to a friend on his ordination)

Passionate Catholic. 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. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
