Quote/s of the Day – 27 September – The Memorial of St Vincent de Paul C.M. (1581-1660)

“The most powerful weapon
to conquer the devil is humility.
For, as he does not know at all,
how to employ it,
neither does he know
how to defend himself from it.”the most powerful weapon to conquer the devil is humility st vincent de paul 27 sept 2019.jpg

“However great, the work
that God may achieve
by an individual,
he must not indulge
in self-satisfaction.
He ought, rather,
to be all the more humbled,
seeing himself merely as a tool,
which God has made use of.”however great the work - st vincent de paul 27 sept 2019.jpg

“Humility and charity
are the two master-chords –
one, the lowest,
the other, the highest,
all the others are dependent on them.
Therefore, it is necessary, above all,
to maintain ourselves in these two virtues,
for observe well, that the preservation
of the whole edifice,
depends on the foundation and the roof. “humility and charity - st vincent de paul - the two master chords - 27 sept 2019.jpg

“We have never, so much cause for consolation,
as when we find ourselves oppressed, by sufferings and trials,
for these make us like Christ our Lord
and this resemblance, is, the true mark, of our predestination.”

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.
