Quote/s of the Day – 2 December – The Memorial of Bl John van Ruysbroeck (c 1293-1382)

“Even as God is common to all,
the sun shines upon all trees.”
(The Adornment of the Spiritual Marriage)

“Knowledge of ourselves teaches us
whence we come,
where we are
and whither we are going.
We come from God
and we are in exile.”
[Ruysbroeck the Admirable (1925)]

“God is more interior to us
than we are to ourselves.
His acting in us,
is nearer and more inward,
than our own actions.
God works in us,
from inside outwards,
creatures work on us,
from the outside.”
(Spiritual Espousals)even as god, god is more interior, knowledge of ourselves - 2 dec 2018 bl john van ruysbroeck

“If we would God discern
The world we must despise,
His love and hate must learn,
See all things with His eyes.
And we must self forgo
If God we would attain,
His grace must in us grow
And ease us from all pain.
So shall we sing His praise
And be at one with Him,
In peace our voices raise
In the celestial hymn,
That with quadruple harmony
And all mellifluous melody,
In Heaven resounds eternally.
(The Seven Steps of the Ladder of Spiritual Love)

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! πŸ™
