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 Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman 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 is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
