“Follow Me”

Matthew 9:9matthew 9 9 the calling of matthew follow me 21 sept 2019

“Follow the saints,
because those who follow them
will become saints.”

Saint Pope Clement I (c 35-99)follow the saints - 17 august 2019 st pope clement I

“This is the army the Lord raises,
these are the children of the baptismal font,
the works of grace, the fruit of the Spirit.
They have followed Christ without having seen Him,
they sought Him and believed.
They recognised Him with the eyes of faith not those of the body.
They have not put their finger into the mark of the nails
but they have bound themselves to His cross and embraced His sufferings.
They have not seen the Lord’s side but, by grace,
they have become members of His body
and have made His words their own:
“Happy are those who have not seen and yet believe!”

The Angel to Gerontius
“There was a mortal, who is now above
In the mid-glory – he, when near to die,
Was given communion with the Crucified –
Such, that the Master’s very wounds were stamp’d
Upon his flesh and, from the agony
Which thrill’d through body and soul in that embrace
Learn, that the flame of the Everlasting Love
Doth burn, ere it transform ….”

Author:

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.
