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
appears forsaken.”

“The Church is the Ship
outside which
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.”

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. 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?

      1. 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.
