Quote/s of the Day – 22 September – The Memorial of St Thomas of Villanova O.S.A (1488-1555)
“I am, notwithstanding, inexcusable, if I do not love You;
for You grant Your love to all who desire or ask it.
I cannot see without light:
yet if I shut my eyes in the midst of the noon-day light,
the fault is in me, not in the sun.”
“What great profit you gain from God when you are generous!
You give a coin and receive a kingdom;
you give bread from wheat and receive the Bread of Life;
you give a transitory good and receive an everlasting one.
You will receive it back, a hundred times more than you offered.”
“If you want God to hear your prayers,
hear the voice of the poor!”
“If you wish God to anticipate your wants,
provide those of the needy without waiting for them to ask you.
Especially anticipate the needs of those
who are ashamed to beg.
To make them ask for alms is to make them buy it.”
“Dismiss all anger and look into yourself a little.
Remember that he of whom you are speaking is your brother
and as he is, in the way of salvation,
God can make him a saint, in spite of his present weakness.”
St Thomas of Villanova (1488-1555)
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.
