Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brethren, what shall we do?”   And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptised every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, for the forgiveness of your sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit...Acts 2:36-38acts 2 36-38

PRAYER – Grant us O God, our Father, Your grace, that we may constantly work to repair the damage caused by our sin that we may seek forgiveness and then go forth to sin no more, always amending what earthly damage we have caused.   St Richard of Chichester, may your prayers, assist us on our journey to our heavenly home.   We make our prayer through our Lord Jesus Christ, in unity with the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever, amen.st richard of chichester pray for us - 3 april 2018

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman 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 is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
