“Leaving everything behind, the man got up and followed him”...Luke 5:28

REFLECTION – “Th exploiter Levi, changes his ways and becomes Matthew, the Apostle and Evangelist, the bearer of the Good News.   His entire life-story proclaims that God is for the wrongdoer, inviting him to change.   Paul changed his ways, so did Augustine, so did Jerome.   So can you!   Ignatius the soldier, becomes Ignatius the saint, the founder of the Jesuits.   What will you be?   What will you do?   For YOU are called too!”…Archbishop Thomas Menamparampil SDB

“Because the healing power of God, knows no infirmity that cannot be healed and this, must give us confidence and open our heart to the Lord, that He may come and heal us.”…Pope Francis – General Audience, 13 April 2016luke 5 28 the calling of matthew - the exploiter levi changes his ways - gods word 2019 9 march 2019

PRAYER – Come my all-powerful, ever-living God, look with compassion on our frailty and for our protection, stretch out to us Your strong right hand.   Grant that by the prayers of Mary, our Mother and all your angels and saints we may change our ways, leave everything behind, proclaim the glory of Your kingdom and come safely home to You.   St Catherine of Bologna and St Frances of Rome, pray for us.   Through our Lord Jesus Christ, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God forever, amen.st-frances-of-rome-pray-for-us - 9 march 2017.jpg

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman 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 is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
