Thought for the Day – 15 June – St Bernard of Menthon C.R.S.A (c 1020-1081)

Saint Bernard’s life was one of simple service in a difficult environment.   His hospitality was legendary and his works survive today in the form of the hospices he established. His community—the Houses and Congregations of Saints Nicholas and Bernard—remains active today, maintaining the Alpine hospices as well as one in the Himalayas. Upon his death, he was interred at the cloisters of Saint Lawrence.   Numerous miracles were reported at the site of his burial, as well as in Saint Bernard’s pass.   We are inspired by the love of Saint Bernard to extend ourselves to those in need, never missing an opportunity to show God’s love.   Saint Bernard reminds us of the epistle of Saint Peter:

The end of all things is near.   Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray.   Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.   Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God.   If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.   To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever.  Amen

1 Peter 4: 7-11

St Bernard of Menthon, Pray for us!st bernard de menthon pray fo us - 15 june 2018


Passionate Catholic. 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. "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. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and bless you 🙏
