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! 🙏

  1. I love this site. Every morning I read the list of saints and I go forward into prayer in their company. Today is the feast of St Lawrence O’Toole. He played a very important role in the life of my city and country. There are not many cannonised Irish saints, largely because we were cut off from the ‘official’ life of the Church as a result of persecution. Many of cyhe writings of our early saints were in Early Irish, which very few scholars are able to interpret. As a result the few who are known are very precious to us. You have a wonderful biography of St. Lawrence O’Toole on your site. However, I didn’t much like the You Tube link you included. It is inaccurate and trivialises the story of an important and serious person. I hope you understand how much I appreciate your work and I pray God’s blessing on it.

  2. Thank you Annemarie – that is so valuable and I bless you! Oftentimes I have little time to watch the video, so I must definitely pay more attention to this aspect. Yes, I am quite sad when it is so difficult to find details on the Irish (and other saints) even though I have a vast collection of books. Many of our friends in heaven are waiting to intercede for us and so many only know of the few “famous” saints.
    Please keep helping me along Annemarie
    God bless you and yours.
