Thought for the Day – 12 September – Whenever I say Hail Mary

Thought for the Day – 12 September – Feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary

Mary, you are the vessel and tabernacle containing all mysteries.   You know what the Patriarchs never knew, you have experienced what was never revealed to the Angels, you have heard what the Prophets never heard.   In a word, all that was hidden from preceding generations was made known to you, even more, most of these wonders depended on you.

St Gregory Thaumarturgus  (c 213–270)

Whenever I say Hail Mary
Blessed Alan de la Roche (1428-1475)

Whenever I say Hail Mary
The court of heaven rejoices
And the earth is lost in wonderment
And I despise the world
And my heart is brim full
Of the love of God.

When I say Hail Mary,
All my fears wilt and die
And my passions are quelled.

If I say Hail Mary,
Devotion grows within me
And sorrow for sin awakens.

When I say Hail Mary
Hope is made strong in my breast
And the dew of consolation
Falls on my soul
more and more,
Because I say Hail Mary.
And my spirit rejoices
And sorrow fades away
When I say
Hail Mary.ave-maria-for-the-memorial-of-st-simon-de-rojas-28-sept-2018.jpg




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! 🙏
