Thought for the Day – 21 September – We can learn much from Matthew.

Thought for the Day – 21 September – The Feast of St Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist- Today’s Gospel: Matthew 9:9–13

We can learn much from Matthew.

He was a man who knew quite well the power of money.   He knew the comfort it could ensure, the recreation it could buy, the luxury it could provide.   But he was wise enough to know what it could not do.   Money could never give him that sense of peace deep inside.   It could never befriend him when he was lonely or give him the strength and courage to go on, when all else seemed lost.   Money could never buy him forgiveness or love.
But the love of Christ could do all this and more.
He was open enough to recognise truth when he saw Him.
“And he got up and followed him” (Matthew 9:9b).

Saint Matthew, Pray for us!st matthew no 3 pray for us 21 sept 2019.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. "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 bless you 🙏
