Quote/s of the Day – 5 January – Christmas Saturday and the Memorial of St Charles of Mount Argus C.P. (1821-1893)

“The birth of our Lord Jesus Christ
in the stable at Bethlehem is a mystery,
it is a miracle so great,
abounding so much in humility and love,
that it will be wondered at by the angels
and saints in heaven for all eternity.
What can I, a mere man,
give the Divine Redeemer in return for such great
and innumerable blessings-
so great, that they cannot be explained-
which, for so many years, I have received from His mercy?
When I consider this, I feel urged,
to thank God with greater fervour,
to please Him more
and to do and suffer everything willingly,
for His love and for His greater glory.”
(Letter 15-To his brother, Father Peter Joseph Houben.
J. X. P. St Paul’s Retreat, Harold’s Cross, Mount Argus, Dublin. 29th December, 1875)the birth of our lord jesus - st charles of mount argus 5 jan 2019

“I wish you all a happy and holy New Year,
one full of happiness and peace,
may the skies open up and shower down on you
an abundance of graces,
may the Lord keep you safe
from every evil of soul and body
and, when this life is over,
may He lead you to that blessed place
where the years do not end
and happiness and peace are eternal.
These are my wishes for you.”
(Letter 13-To his brother, Father Peter Joseph Houben.
J. X. P. St Joseph’s Retreat, Highgate, London W. 15th January, 1873.)

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 site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings but rejects the Second Vatican Council as heretical and, therefore, all that followed it.
