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! 🙏

  1. Thank you for the link to Bishop Barron.

    We are far too prone to accepting the world’s view of the Church as a sort of club or political grouping. Once I took on an understanding of the Church as Christ’s mystical body in the Communion of Saints, everything changed for me.

    Understanding this makes sense of so much that otherwise seems inexplicable, pain and suffering, the Real Presence in the Eucharist, life, death and Resurrection….

    We are not merely walking this earth at a particular time and place, coming from who knows where and going who knows where. No, we are a like specific cell in Christ’s mystical body which spans time and space into eternity….

    “And so, with the Angels and Archangels, with Thrones and Dominions, and with all the hosts and Powers of heaven, we sing the hymn of your glory, as without end we proclaim: Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts. Heaven and Earth are full of Your glory. Hosanna in the Highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the Highest. “

    1. Simply beautiful Annemarie, thank you! And yes, this is who we are and because of this, fear is gone! Oh glorious and wonderful is the thought, that as part of Him, He cannot do without us!
      Every tiny cell is necessary to the Body and each has it’s role to play.
      By living His commandments He gather’s us to Himself and thus we too are completed.
      Today’s Responsorial Psalm Bless the Lord O my soul! O Lord thou art very great.
