Thought for the Day – 3 February – The Memorial of Saint Ansgar OSB (801-865)

The “Apostle of the North” had enough frustrations to become a saint—and he did.
History records what people do, rather than what they are.   Yet the courage and perseverance of men and women like Ansgar can only come from a solid base of union with the original courageous and persevering Missionary.

Ansgar’s life is another reminder that God writes straight with crooked lines.   Christ takes care of the effects of the apostolate in His own way, He is first concerned about the purity of the apostles themselves.

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.
