Quote/s of the Day – 8 August – The Memorials of St Dominic (1170-1221)
and St Mary of the Cross MacKillop (1842-1909)
“We must sow
not hoard it.”
“Heretics are to be converted by an example of humility
and other virtues far more readily, than by any external
display or verbal battles.
So let us arm ourselves with
devout prayers and set off showing signs of genuine humility
and go barefooted to combat Goliath.”
“A man who governs his passions is master of his world.
We must either command them or be enslaved by them.
It is better to be a hammer than an anvil.”
St Dominic (1170-1221)
“Whatever troubles may be before you,
accept them bravely,
remembering Whom you are trying to follow.
Do not be afraid.
Love one another, bear with one another
and let charity guide you all your life.
God will reward you as only He can.”
St Mary of the Cross MacKillop (1842-1909)
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.
This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul.
"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.
