REFLECTION – “Have I learned to watch over myself, that the temple of my heart is only for the Holy Spirit?   Purify the temple, the inner temple and watch.  Be careful, be careful, what happens in the heart.   Who comes in and who goes out, the feelings, the ideas…  Do we speak to the Holy Spirit?   Do we listen to the Holy Spirit?   Watch out.   Let us be attentive to what happens in our temple, in (us) ourselves.”…Pope Francis – Santa Marta, 24 November 2017let-us-be-attentive-pope-francis-23-nov-2018and 22 nov 2019.jpg

PRAYER – Lord our God, in Your mercy listen to our prayers! Teach us the peace of Your love. Guide us in the ways of Your Commandments. Let the path laid out by Your Son, be our Light and our Joy. Grant that by the prayers of Your Martyr, St Pedro and all Your Saints, we may receive strength for our journey. Through Jesus our Lord, with the Holy Spirit, God for all eternity, amen.st pedro esqueda ramirez pray for us 22 nov 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. I’ve had more than a few disappointments and set-backs lately but, unlike my formal self, I love them as they firm my resolve firmer as I befriend Jesus all the more.

    1. Amen – hard lessons of life are there to teach us – if we allow them to. We were burglared on my Birthday Hughie when we went out of town for the day – our whole means of livelihood was stolen. I cannot talk of it without crying and shivering. BUT I still hold on very tightly to the hem of His robe.

  2. I will ask Our Blessed Mother to protect help, ask her to resolve this matter quickly so as not let you suffer any longer. I wish I had been there as I have some skills in this that I learned a long time ago. Is there any lawinforcement in your area?

    1. Thank you Hughie – I too am asking her to whisper in the Lord’s ear – urgently!
      Yes – if you could call it that – sorry to say they are FAT, UNCARING, UNCONCERNED and USELESS.
