“But my words will not pass away….” …Luke 21:33

REFLECTION – “The Word of God makes us change our concept of realism.   Indeed, the realist is the one who recognises in the Word of God, the foundation of all things.   As you see these things happening, you know that the Kingdom of God is near (Lk 21:31).   Now the word is not simply audible, not only does it have a voice, now the word has a face, one which we can see – that of Jesus of Nazareth.” …. Pope Benedict XVIluke 21 33 but my words will not pass away - the word of god makes us change our concept - pope benedict XVI 29 nov 2019.jpg

PRAYER – Lord God, open our hearts to Your grace and the Light of Your word.   Let it go before us and be with us, open our eyes to see and our hearts to love, that we may always be intent upon doing Your will and following Your Word which has the Face of Your dearly beloved Son, Jesus our Saviour.   Please hear the prayers of the beloved of Heart of Jesus, Blessed Bernardo de Hoyos on our behalf.   We make our prayer through Jesus our Lord, with the Holy Spirit, God forever, amen.bl bernardo de hoyos pray for us 29 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. He is tiny and fragile but his brain is a giant and powerful still. But he walks with a frame and does not attend anything. Even his beloved St John Henry’s Canonisation.
