Quote of the Day – 12 April – Thursday of the Second Week of Eastertide & the Memorial of St Zeno of Verona (c 300 – 371)

“How earnestly do I desire, if I were able, to celebrate you,
O Patience, queen of all things!
But by my life and manners, more than by my words.
For you rest in your own action
and council more than in discourses
and in perfecting, rather than in multiplying virtues.
You are the support of virginity,
the secure harbour of widowhood,
the guide and directress, of the married state,
the unanimity of friendship,
the comfort and joy of slavery,
to which you are often liberty.
By you, poverty enjoys all,
because, content with itself, it bears all.
By you, the prophets, were advanced in virtue
and the apostles united to Christ.
You are the daily crown and mother of the martyrs.
You art the bulwark of faith,
the fruit of hope
and the friend of charity.
Happy, eternally happy, is he
who shall always possess you in his soul.”

St Zeno of Verona (c 300 – 371)how earnestly do i desire (on patience) - st zeno - 12 april 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.
