Quote of the Day – 19 January 2019 – Saturday of the First week in Ordinary Time – Gospel: Mark 2:13–17
“For everything in the life of Jesus, the Incarnate Word, is full of signification.
Christ, if I may thus express myself, is the great sacrament of the New Law…
each of Our Lord’s mysteries ought to be for us, an object of contemplation.
His mysteries ought also to be, as it were, sacraments producing within us,
according to the measure of our faith and love, their own special grace.
And this is true of each of the states of Jesus, of each of His actions.
For if Christ is always the Son of God, if in all that He says and does
He first of all glorifies His Father,
neither does He ever separate us from the thought of Him.
To each of His mysteries, He attaches a grace,
which is to help us to reproduce within ourselves,
His divine features, in order to make us like unto Him.”
Blessed Abbot Columba Marmion OSB (1858-1923)
(Christ in His Mysteries, 232-33)
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.

"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.”
