Quote of the Day – 11 December – The Memorial of St Pope Damasus I (c 305-384)

The arrangement of the names of Christ, however, is manifold:

because He is Spirit.
because He is God.
because He is the only-begotten son of the Father.
because He was born of the Virgin.
because He offered Himself as a sacrifice.
because He is a guardian.
because He rose again.
because He is strong.
because there is a straight path through Him to life.
because He suffered.
because instruction is His.
because He demonstrates how to live.
because He is the illuminator.
because He is from the Fathe.
because He is the creator.
because He is flesh.
because He is the merciful protector.
because He is anointed.
because He is a mediator.
because we are redeemed by His blood.
because He is King.
because He is firm.
because He is the chosen one.
because He has revealed what is to come.

from the Decree of Damasus

Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, 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. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "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 site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏

  1. He omitted one of my favorites. Friend- because he “walks with me, talks with me, and tells me I am His own.” Then we silently have a friend to friend discussion of things that concern each of us. It is so wonderful to silently worship in the early morning hours.
