Feast of Our Lady of Pontmain & Memorials of the Saints -17 January

St Anthony Abbot (251-356) (Memorial)

Our Lady of Pontmain – 17 January:  During the Franco-Prussian War, German troops approached the town of Pontmain, France and the villagers there prayed for protection. On the evening of 17 January 1871, Mary appeared in the sky for several minutes over the town.   She wore a dark blue dress covered in stars, carried a crucifix and below her were the words –  Pray please. God will hear you soon.   My son lets Himself be touched.   That night the German army was ordered to withdraw and an armistice ending the war was signed eleven days later on 28 January.   Approval of diocesan bishop.pontmain_53_statue_de_la_vierge_sur_le_parvis_de_la_basilique.jpg

Passionate Catholic. Being 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 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.
