Quote of the Day – 18 February – The First Sunday of Lent Year B

“Lent is like a long ‘retreat’ during
which we can turn back into ourselves
and listen to the voice of God, in order
to defeat the temptations of the Evil One.

It is a period of spiritual ‘combat’
which we must experience alongside
Jesus, not with pride and presumption,
but using the arms of faith:  prayer,
listening to the word of God and penance.

In this way we will be able to celebrate
Easter in truth, ready to renew
the promises of our baptism.”

Pope Benedict XVIlent is like a long retreat - pope benedict - 18 feb 1st sunday of lent b 2018


Passionate Catholic. Being 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 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.
