Quote/s of the Day – 30 December – The Sixth Day in the Christmas Octave and the Memorial of Blessed Giovanni Maria Boccardo (1848-1913) “Father of the Poor”
“Do you want to become a saint?
Imitate Jesus Christ,
walk in His footsteps,
think like Jesus,
speak like Jesus,
love like Jesus,
make your life,
a reproduction of His Life.”
“How many things Jesus tells us in our heart,
when we stand at His feet,
if we are careful to listen to His Voice!”
“In silence, in listening to His Word,
the Lord waits for us
to make His Voice heard.
To take it with us
as we walk the streets …”
“When you want to pass judgement
on your neighbour,
act as if it were you,
and you were next!”
Blessed Giovanni Maria Boccardo (1848-1913)
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.
