Quote/s of the Day – 16 September – The Memorial of Sts Cornelius and Cyprian Martyrs

“We must carry out the will of God
rather than our own.
This is what we pledge to do in the “Our Father”,
which we recite every day.
What a travesty it would be if,
after praying that God’s will be done,
we should carry out that will halfheartedly
and only because we are obliged to do so!we-must-carry-out-the-will-of-god-rather-than-our-own-st-cyprian-of-carthage-190-258

“We have solemnly renounced the world
and therefore, whilst we continue in it,
we should behave like strangers and pilgrims.”we have solemnly renounced the world - st cyprian - 16 sept 2018

“You cannot have God for your Father
if you do not have the Church for your mother….
God is one and Christ is one and His Church is one;
one is the faith and one is the people cemented together
by harmony into the strong unity of a body….
If we are the heirs of Christ, let us abide in the peace of Christ;
if we are the sons of God, let us be lovers of peace.”you-cannot-have-god-for-your-father-st-cyprian-of-carthage-16 sept 2017

“You who are envious, let me tell you
that however often you may seek
for the opportunity of injuring him whom you hate,
you will never be able to do him so much harm,
as you do harm to yourselves.
He whom you would punish through the malice of your envy,
may probably escape but you will never
be able to fly from yourselves.” (St Cyprian from The Unity of the Catholic Church)you-who-are-envious- st cyprian - 16 sept 2017

“Let us remember one another in concord and unanimity.
Let us on both sides of death always pray for one another.
Let us relieve burdens and afflictions by mutual love,
that if one of us, by the swiftness of divine condescension,
shall go hence the first, our love may continue in the presence
of the Lord and our prayers for our brethren and sisters
not cease in the presence of the Father’s mercy.”
St Cyprian from letters (to St Pope Cornelius no 253)

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.
