Quote/s of the Day – 30 March – The Memorial of St John Climacus (c 525-606) Father of the Church
“Humility is the only virtue
that no devil can imitate.
If pride made demons out of angels,
there is no doubt,
that humility could
make angels out of demons.”
“Obedience is the burial of the will
and the resurrection of humility.”
“Repentance lifts a man up.
Mourning knocks at heaven’s gate.
Holy humility opens it.”
“… A proud soul is the slave of fear,
hoping in itself, in comes to such a state,
that it is startled by a small noise
and is afraid of the dark.”
St John Climacus (c 525-606)
Father 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.
