to share in the greatness of Christ.”

“We recognise a tree by its fruit
and we ought to be able to recognise
a Christian by his action.
The fruit of faith should be evident in our lives,
for being a Christian is more than making
sound professions of faith.
It should reveal itself in practical and visible ways.
Indeed it is better to keep quiet about our beliefs
and live them out,
than to talk eloquently about what we believe
but fail to live by it.”we recognise a tree by its fruit - st ignatius of antioch - speaking of living the light - no 2- 24 sept 2018

“Christianity is not a matter of persuading people of particular ideas
but of inviting them to share in the greatness of Christ.
So pray that I may never fall into the trap of impressing people
with clever speech but instead, I may learn to speak with humility,
desiring only to impress people with Christ Himself.”christianity-is-not-a-matter-st-ignatius-of-antioch-17-oct-2017

“Labour together with one another;
strive in company together;
run together; suffer together; sleep together;
and awake together,
as the stewards and associates
and servants of God.
Please Him under whom you fight
and from whom you receive your wages.
Let none of you be found a deserter.
Let your baptism endure as your arms;
your faith as your helmet;
your love as your spear;
your patience as a complete panoply.
Let your works be the charge assigned to you,
that you may receive a worthy recompense.
Be long-suffering, therefore, with one another,
in meekness, as God is towards you.
May I have joy of you for ever!
Give.” … (St Ignatius of Antioch: The Epistles)labour together with one another - st ignatius of antioch - 24 sept 2018 - speaking of living the light

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.
