REFLECTION – “The Eucharist is Jesus Himself who gives Himself entirely to us. Nourishing ourselves on Him and abiding in Him through Eucharistic Communion, if we do so with faith, transforms our life:  transforms it into a gift to God and to our brothers and sisters.   Nourishing ourselves of that “Bread of Life” means entering into harmony with the heart of Christ, assimilating His choices, His thoughts, His behaviour.   It means entering into a dynamism of love and becoming people of peace, people of forgiveness, of reconciliation, of sharing in solidarity. …Pope Francis – (Angelus, 16 August 2015)nourishing ourselves - pope francis - 19 aug 2018

PRAYER – Lord God, You have called us and prepared for those who love You, what no eye has seen, no ear has heard.   Fill our hearts with Your love, so that loving You above all and in all, we may attain Your promises and become images of Your Son.   With Mary our merciful and loving Mother who is constantly reaching down to assist us, to intercede for us and bring us to You, we make our prayer through Jesus our Lord, in union with the Holy Spirit, one God forever, amen.mary assumed into heaven pray for us - 19 aug 2018

Passionate Catholic. Being 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 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.
