“In the difficulties which are placed before me,
why should I not act like a donkey?
When one speaks ill of him – the donkey says nothing.
When he is mistreated – he says nothing.
When he is forgotten – he says nothing.
When no food is given him – he says nothing.
When he is made to advance – he says nothing.
When he is despised – he says nothing.
When he is overburdened – he says nothing.
The true servant of God must do likewise
and say with David:
“Before Thee I have become like a beast of burden.”

St Alphonsus Rodriguez (1532-1617)in the difficulties which are placed before me - st alphonsus rodriguez - 20 june 2018

to be esteemed above them.”

acceptable to God,
meekness makes us
acceptable to men.”true humility - humility consists - humility makes our lives - st francis de sales - 20 june 2018

“If, when stung by slander or ill-nature,
we wax proud and swell with anger,
it is a proof that our gentleness
and humility are unreal
and mere artificial show.”

“The highest point of humility
consists in not merely acknowledging one’s abjection
but in taking pleasure therein,
not from any want of breadth or courage
but to give the more glory to God’s Divine Majesty
and to esteem one’s neighbour,
more highly than one’s self.”

St Francis de Sales (1567-1622) Doctor of Charityif when stung by slander - the highest point of humility - st francis de sales - 20 june 2018

reject all praise for themselves
and refer it all to God.”

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.
