Quote/s of the Day – 15 January – The Feast of Our Lady of Banneux – “Speaking of Mary”

“That one woman is both mother and virgin,
not in spirit only but even in body.
In spirit she is mother, not of our Head,
who is our Saviour Himself—of whom all,
even she herself, are rightly called children of the Bridegroom—
but plainly she is the mother of us, who are His members
because by love, she has co-operated, so that the faithful,
who are the members of that Head, might be born in the Church.
In body, indeed, she is the Mother of that very Head”

St Augustine (354-430) Father and Doctor of the Churchthat one woman - st augustine - 15 jan 2018

“Seek refuge in Mary because she is the city of refuge.
We know that Moses set up three cities of refuge
for anyone who inadvertently killed his neighbour.

even for those who deliberately commit evil.
Mary provides shelter and strength for the sinner.”

“Just as there is not one among all the Blessed
who loves God as Mary does, so there is no one,
after God, who loves us as much as this most loving Mother does.
Furthermore, if we heaped together
all the love that mothers have for their children,
all the love of husbands and wives,
all the love of all the angels and Saints for their clients,
it could never equal Mary’s love for even a single soul.”

St Alphonsus Liguori (1696-1787) Doctor of the Church (The Glories of Mary)just as there is not one - 15 jan 2018 - st alphonsus liguori

“Only after the Last Judgment will Mary get any rest;
from now until then, she is much too busy with her children.”

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! 🙏
