“Let your loins be girded and your lamps burning … Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes”...Luke 12:35,37

REFLECTION – “Nothing is more certain, in the faith of Christians, than this “appointment”, this appointment with the Lord, when He shall come.   And when this day arrives, we Christians want to be like those servants who spent the night with their loins girded and their lamps burning – we must be ready for the salvation that comes; ready for the encounter.   Have you thought about what that encounter with Jesus will be like, when He comes?   It will be an embrace, an enormous joy, a great joy!   We must live in anticipation of this encounter!”…Pope Francis – General audience, 11 October 2017luke 12 37 blessed are those servants - pope francis - nothing is moe certain - pope francis 23 oct 2018

PRAYER – Lord God, strengthen in our hearts the faith You have given us, so that no trials may quench the fire Your Spirit has kindled within us.   May Your Light shine through our lives and be constantly lit to lead us ready for the day the Lord Jesus calls.   St John of Capistrano and Blessed Arnold Rèche, by your prayers, may our way be made holy. Through Jesus Christ with the Holy Spirit, God forever,

bl arnold reche pray for us - 23 oct 2018



Passionate Catholic. 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. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
