Quote/s of the Day – 31 December – Feast of the Holy Family and the Seventh Day of the Octave

“God, to whom angels submit themselves
and who principalities and powers obey,
was subject to Mary; 
and not only to Mary but Joseph also for Mary’s sake [….].
God obeyed a human creature; 
this is humility without precedent.   
A human creature commands God; 
it is sublime beyond measure.”

St Bernard of Clairvaux – (1090-1153) – Doctor of the Churchgod obeyed a human creature - st bernard - 31 dec 2017

“What was family life in Nazareth like?
In the home of the Holy Family in Nazareth,
Jesus, Mary and Joseph sanctified their ordinary life,
without doing anything spectacular or newsworthy.
They led a life that was to all appearances,
the same as that of their neighbours,
a life that was important, not because
of the material things they did
but because of the love that they put into these things,
in perfect union with the Will of God the Father.”what was the family life in nazareth life - st josemaria - 31 dec 2017

“Marriage is to help married people
sanctify themselves and others.
For this reason they receive
a special grace in the sacrament
which Jesus Christ instituted.
Those who are called
to the married state,
will, with the grace of God,
find within their state
everything they need to be holy.

St Josemaria Escrivá (1902-1975) (Christ is Passing By – no 22)marriage is to help - st josemaria - 31 dec 2017

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.
