“Your God is ever beside you –
indeed, He is even within you.”your god is ever beside you - 1 aug 2017 st-alphonsus-quote

“Know also that you will probably gain more
by praying fifteen minutes
before the Blessed Sacrament
than by all the other spiritual exercises of the day.
True, Our Lord hears our prayers anywhere,
for He has made the promise, ‘Ask, and you shall receive,’
but He has revealed to His servants,
that those who visit Him in the Blessed Sacrament
will obtain a more abundant measure of grace.”know-also-that-you-will-probably-gain-more-st-alphonsus-1 aug 2017- no 2

“St Augustine and St Thomas
define mortal sin
to be a turning away from God:
that is, the turning of one’s back upon God,
leaving the Creator for the sake of the creature.
What punishment would that subject deserve who,
while his king was giving him a command,
contemptuously turned his back upon him to go
and transgress his orders?
This is what the sinner does;
and this is punished in hell with the pain of loss,
that is, the loss of God,
a punishment richly deserved by him
who in this life turns his back upon his sovereign good.”st-augustine-and-st-thomas-define-mortal-sin-st-alphonsus - 1 aug 2017

“Let us thank God
for having called us to His holy faith.
It is a great gift
and the number of those,
who thank God for it is small.”

“All others had a Redeemer Who delivered them
from sin with which they were already defiled
but that the most Blessed Virgin had a Redeemer Who,
because He was her Son,
preserved her from ever being defiled by it. “all others had a redeemer - st alphonsus - 15 jan 2018

“Just as there is not one among all the Blessed
who loves God as Mary does, so there is no one,
after God, who loves us as much as this most loving Mother does.
Furthermore, if we heaped together
all the love that mothers have for their children,
all the love of husbands and wives,
all the love of all the angels and Saints for their clients,
it could never equal Mary’s love for even a single soul.”just as there is not one - 15 jan 2018 - st alphonsus liguori

“Were you to ask, ‘what are the mans of overcoming temptations’, I would answer:

the first means is prayer;  the second is prayer;  the third is prayer and should you ask me a thousand times, I would repeat the same.”

were you to ask - st alphonsus - 18 june 2018

“Without prayer, we have neither light nor strength, to advance in the way which leads to God.”

He who prays most receives most.”

St Alphonsus Liguori (1696-1787) Doctor of the Church

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.
