“Whoever receives the one I send, receives me”...John 13:20

REFLECTION “But, in order to keep the Gospel forever, whole and alive, within the Church, the Apostles left bishops as their successors, “handing over” to them “the authority, to teach in their own place.”(Saint Irenaeus)   This sacred tradition, therefore and Sacred Scripture, of both the Old and New Testaments, are like a mirror in which the pilgrim Church on earth looks at God, from whom she has received everything, until she is brought finally, to see Him as He is, face to face (1 John 3:2)…”...Vatican IIDogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation “ Dei Verbum ”, #7-8john 13 20 whoever receives - dei verbum 7-6 vatican II 16 may 2019.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.
