Quote/s of the Day – 13 January – The Memorial of St Hilary of Poitiers (315-368) Father & Doctor of the Church

“The privilege of our Church is such that
it is never stronger
than when it is attacked,
never better known
than when it is accused,
never more powerful
than when it appears forsaken.”
(Treatise on the Trinity)

“The Church is the Ship
outside which
it is impossible to understand
the Divine Word,
for Jesus spoke from the boat
to the people gathered
on the shore.”

“No matter how sinful
one may have been,
if he has devotion to Mary,
it is impossible that he be lost.”the privilege of our church - st hilary of pitiers - 13 jan 2018

“I am well aware,
almighty God and Father,
that in my life,
I owe you a most particular duty.
It is to make my every thought
and word speak of You.”i am well aware almighty god - st hilary of poitiers - 13 jan 2018

“It is the Father from whom everything
that exists has been formed.
He is in Christ and through Christ
the source of all things.
Moreover, His being is in Himself
and He does not derive
what He is from anywhere else,
but possesses what He is
from Himself and in Himself.
He is infinite because He Himself
is not in anything
and all things are within Him,
He is always outside of space
because He is not restricted;
He is always before time
because time comes from Him….
But, God is also present everywhere
and is present in His entirety wherever He is.
Thus, He transcends the realm of understanding,
outside of whom nothing exists
and of whom eternal being is always characteristic.
This is the true nature of the mystery of God;
this is the name
of the impenetrable nature in the Father.”
(Treatise on the Trinity)

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 site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings but rejects the Second Vatican Council as heretical and, therefore, all that followed it.
