Quote/s of the Day – 23 January – Thursday of the Second Week in Ordinary Time, Year A and the Memorial of Blessed Benedetta Bianchi Porro (1936-1964) “The White Winter Rose” An Extraordinary Love
“Sometimes I find myself defeated
under the weight of this heavy cross.
Then, I call upon Jesus
and lovingly cast myself at His feet,
He kindly permits me,
to rest my head on His lap.”
(Bl Benedetta in a letter to a friend)
“For those who believe,
everything is a sign!”
“Life has only one face – LOVE.”
Blessed Benedetta Bianchi Porro (1936-1964)
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.

The art for the first quote is beautiful. Is it yours? I am looking for a Blessed Benedetta gift for my deaf granddaughter who chose her as her Confirmation Saint.

Hi Tony no it’s not mine. I found it online with no “restrictions” – I am sure you would be able to print it for her. What a wonderful gift!
