Quote/s of the Day – 23 November – The memorial of St Columban (543-615)
“We, indeed, are,
as I have said,
chained to the
Chair of Saint Peter.”
“Be gentle to the weak,
firm to the stubborn,
steadfast to the proud,
humble to the lowly.”
when you are,
at the bottom of the ladder
and be the lowest,
when you are in authority.”
“Be slow to anger,
swift to learn,
slow also to speak,
as St James says,
equally swift to hear.”
“Be respectful to the worthy,
merciful to the poor.”
“Be mindful of favours,
unmindful of wrongs.”
Excerpts from a “Letter to a Young Disciple”
by St Columban (543-615)
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.
