“And delicately, gently,
by means of this sweet and peaceful dawn,
God taught me, too, to obey …

who gives me a little corner
in which to wait for what I hope.”

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.

Did I ever tell you about St Mother Teresa’s Flying Novena? She and The sisters while they were driving somewhere they would pray the Memorare 10 times back-to-back. 9 for the novena and 1 as a Thanksgiving for answering the request.
