Sunday Reflection – 8 September – Twenty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C

“When Mass ended I remained with Jesus to render Him thanks.

My thirst and hunger do not diminish after I have received Him in the Blessed Sacrament but rather, increase steadily.

Oh, how sweet was the conversation I held with Paradise this morning.

The Heart of Jesus and my own, if you will pardon my expression, fused.
They were no longer two hearts beating but only one.
My heart disappeared, as if it were, a drop in the ocean.”

St Pio of Pietrelcina aka St Padre Pio (1887 to 1968)

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. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "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. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! πŸ™
