REFLECTION – “O my God, though I am not fit to see or touch You yet, still I will ever come within Your reach and desire that which is not yet given me in its fullness.   O my Saviour, You shall be my sole God! – I will have no Lord but You.  I will break to pieces all idols in my heart which rival You.   I will have nothing but Jesus and Him Crucified.   It shall be my life to pray to You, to offer myself to You, to keep You before me, to worship You in Your holy Sacrifice and to surrender myself to You in Holy Communion.  Amen.” —– St John Henry Newman (1801-1890)o my god though i am not fit to see or touch you yet - st john henry newman 6 nov 2019.jpg

PRAYER – Holy God and Father, You sent Your Son to show us the way to our eternal home.   Teach us always to understand that by relinquishing the things of this world and focusing our efforts only on following the Light He shines on our path, we may attain the eternal victory.   May the prayers of Your our Blessed Mother, the Virgin Mary, assist us in carrying our cross after Hi  m. Through Christ our Lord, with the Holy Spirit, God forever, amen.holy mother mary pray for us 16 jan 2019.jpg

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.

  1. Darling, I am confused or reading this scripture wrong ever since I read it this morning and again at Mass I still don’t get it. I can’t believe that Christ wants me to hate my family in order to follow Him? I turn to you in loving spirit to set me back on the path I must follow. HH
