If you show favouritism, you commit sin and are convicted by the law…..James 2:9

REFLECTION – “Do not show favour only to relations and kin, or to the most eminent – whether they are leaders or the wealthy or neighbours or citizens of the same country. Show favour to all who come to you.   By fulfilling your duty in this way, you will reach the highest state of happiness.”…St Stephen of Hungaryif you show favourtism - james 2 9 - do not show favour - st stephen of hungary - 16 aug 2018

PRAYER – Just and Holy Father, help me to overcome all tendencies to show favouritism in my life.   Let me treat all persons as brothers and sisters in Christ and work and pray for their salvation.   As You forgive me, teach me Lord, to forgive all.   Grant that the prayers of St Stephen of Hungary may continue to defend us, as he did in the world.  Through Jesus our Lord, with the Holy Spirit, one God forever, amen.st-stephen-of-hungary-pray-for-us-16 aug 2017

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.
