Quote/s of the Day – 13 January – Monday of the First week in Ordinary Time, Year A and the Memorial of St Hilary of Poitiers (315-368) Father and Doctor of the Church
“The privilege of our Church is such
that it is never stronger,
than when it is attacked,
never better known,
than when it is accused,
never more powerful,
than when it
(Treatise on the Trinity)
“The Church is the Ship
it is impossible to understand
the Divine Word,
for Jesus spoke from the boat
to the people gathered
on the shore.”
“God only knows,
how to be love
and He only knows,
how to be Father.
And the one who loves is not envious
and one who is Father is so totally.
This name does not permit compromises,
as if God were only father
in some aspects
and not in others.”
St Hilary of Poitiers
Father & Doctor of the Church
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.

Annie, quick thought. Why do latter day saints try to clarify the Church Fathers and DoctorsWhen all we have to do is practice what they preach?

Well – I guess because times change – we must constantly “read the signs of the times” – we must constantly re-interpret or re-think our great Fathers’ wisdom to see their truth in our day correctly – what say you?
Briefly. Why re-invent the wheel? Christ had it right. Apostles, disciples and even innocents believed and died for it.It being the Truth. Truth is just that if it is the Truth nothing more should be said just follow. I have been asked by many such stupid questions. Like when was the beginning or when will be the end.
