Second Thoughts for Today – 22 January

Second Thoughts for Today – 22 January – The Memorial of St Vincent of Saragossa (Died 304) – Deacon and Martyr – The Protomartyr of Spain, St Vincent Pallotti (1795-1850) Priest, Missionary, Apostle of Charity and Marian Devotion, Founder and Blessed William Joseph Chaminade S.M. (1761-1850) Priest, Apostle of Mary and Founder of the “Society of Mary or Marianists”

There is a certain genius that comes from the faith and we saw it in our own day in St Mother Teresa.   The saints tend to tackle great and difficult things and accomplish wonders because they did NOT and do NOT depend on their OWN strength and effort. They KNOW that all things are possible ONLY with and in God – they take Him at His word – they ask for miracles and receive them!
They are never disappointed – this is the genius of faith!

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! 🙏
