Thought for the Day – 11 October – The Memorial of St John XXIII (1881-1963)

“The Daily Decalogue of St Pope John XXIII”

  1. Only for today, I will seek to live the livelong day positively, without wishing to solve the problems of my life all at once.

  2. Only for today, I will take the greatest care of my appearance – I will dress modestly, I will not raise my voice, I will be courteous in my behaviour, I will not criticise anyone, I will not claim to improve or to discipline anyone except myself.

  3. Only for today, I will be happy in the certainty that I was created to be happy, not only in the other world but also in this one.

  4. Only for today, I will adapt to circumstances, without requiring all circumstances to be adapted to my own wishes.

  5. Only for today, I will devote 10 minutes of my time to some good reading, remembering that just as food is necessary to the life of the body, so good reading is necessary to the life of the soul.

  6. Only for today, I will do one good deed and not tell anyone about it.

  7. Only for today, I will do at least one thing I do not like doing and if my feelings are hurt, I will make sure that no one notices.

  8. Only for today, I will make a plan for myself – I may not follow it to the letter but I will make it.   And I will be on guard against two evils:  hastiness and indecision.

  9. Only for today, I will firmly believe, despite appearances, that the good Providence of God cares for me ,as no one else who exists in this world.

  10. Only for today, I will have no fears.   In particular, I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful and to believe in goodness.   Indeed, for 12 hours I can certainly do what might cause me consternation were I to believe I had to do it all my life.the daily decalogue of st john XXIII - 11 oct 2018

St Pope John XXIII, Pray for Us!st-john-23-pray-for-us-11-oct-2017-2

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman 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 is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
