Sunday Reflection – 6 January – The Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord
“What other people are so fortunate as the Christian people? What creature under heaven is so beloved as a devout soul into whom God comes, in order to feed him with His own glorious Body and Blood? O grace unspeakable, O marvellous condescension, O love without measure, bestowed only on human beings!
There is nothing I can give to the Lord for this grace – this supreme love; nothing acceptable I can offer Him but my heart entirely given to God and closely united to Him. Then, all that is within me will be filled with joy, when my soul is perfectly one with God.
Then He will say to me: “If you will be with Me, I will be with you.” And I will answer Him and say: “Stay with me, Lord, I implore You, for my desire is to be with You.”
This is my whole desire – that my heart be united to You.”
Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471)
Book 4-Chapter 13 #3
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.
