Quote of the Day – 26 March 2018 – Monday of Holy week
“In the passion of our blessed Saviour,
six things chiefly are to be meditated upon.
First, the bitterness of His sorrow,
that we may compassionate with Him.
Secondly, the greatness of our sins,
which were the cause of His torments,
that we may abhor them.
Thirdly, the greatness of the benefit,
that we may be grateful for it.
Fourthly, the excellency of the divine charity
and bounty therein manifested,
that we may love Him more fervently.
Fifthly, the convenience of the mystery,
that we may be drawn to admiration of it.
Lastly, the multiplicity of virtues
of our blessed Saviour which did shine
in this stupendous mystery, that we may
partly imitate and partly admire them.”
St Peter of Alcantara (1499-1562)
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.
