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.

One thought on “One Minute Reflection – 21 February – The Memorial of St Robert Southwell S.J. (1561-1595)

  1. I love Robert Southwell, I hadn’t realised he was of the same family line as Percy Bysche Shelley. They both shared a poetic gift and ethereal beautiful countenance but St Robert was a believer and Percy an atheist.
