Quote/s of the Day – 12 December – Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

His Holiness, Pope Francis, 12 December 2015

“In Mary, God rejoices and is especially pleased.
In one of the prayers dearest to Christians,
the Salve Regina, we call Mary “Mother of Mercy”.
She has experienced divine mercy
and has hosted in her womb.
the very source of this mercy: Jesus Christ.
She, who has always lived intimately united to her Son,
knows better than anyone, what He wants –
that all men be saved and that God’s tenderness
and consolation never fail anyone.
May Mary, Mother of Mercy,
help us to understand how much God loves us.”iN mARY gOD REJOICES - POPE FRANCIS 12 DEC 2018.jpg

“The Lord is near”, the Apostle Paul tells us
and nothing should perturb us. He is close by.
He is not alone but is with His Mother.
She said to St Juan Diego:
“Why are you afraid? Am I not here who am your Mother?”.
He is near. He and his Mother.
The greatest mercy lies in His being in our midst,
in our being in His presence and company.
He walks with us, He shows us the path of love,
He lifts us up when we fall and with such tenderness,
He supports us in our labours,
He accompanies us in every circumstance of life.
He opens our eyes to see our wretchedness
and that of the world
but at the same time
He fills us with hope!”The lord is near - pope francis 12 dec 2018 guadalupe

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.
