Quote/s of the Day – 22 January – The Memorial of St Vincent Pallotti SAC (1795-1850)

“How great is the dignity of the priesthood!
What a dignity, what a dignity!…
To be a priest!
What does that mean?
O God, my God, I do not understand it!
What does it mean to present
the holy, bloodless sacrifice
and to administer the sacraments!”
(Written to St Gaspar del Bufalo (1786-1837), just before being ordained, the founder of the Society for the Precious Blood, with whom Vincenzo contracted a deep spiritual friendship.)how great is the dignity of the priesthood - st vincent pallotti - 22 jan 2019.jpg

Before his First Holy Mass

“Not the intellect but God
Not the will but God
Not the heart but God
Not taste but God
Not touch but God
Not food and drink but God
Not clothing but God
Not tranquillity but God
Not the worldly goods but God.
Not riches but God.
Not honours but God.
Not distinction but God.
Not dignities but God.
Not advancement but God.
God in all
God always.”not-the-intellect-but-god-st-vincent-pallotti-22-jan-2018.jpg

“You must be holy in the way that God asks you to be holy.
God does not ask you to be a Trappist monk or a hermit.
He wills, that you sanctify the world
and your everyday life.”

St Vincent Pallotti (1795-1850)


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. "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.
