Thought for the Day – 30 March – The Presence of God

Thought for the Day – 30 March – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

The Presence of God

“God sees us always, for He is everywhere.
“In Him, we live and move and have our being” (Acts 17:28)
We did not exist and He produced us from nothing, by His omnipotence.
If He did not support us continually, we should return to nothingness, for conservation is a continuous act of creation.
But He has given us immortal souls and has created us for Himself, so that we may serve, enjoy and love Him for all eternity.
We are always in His Presence.
He sees clearly, everything which we think, desire or do, even our most secret hidden actions.
Do we perfectly grasp this tremendous truth?
Are we aware of it, at every moment of our lives and do we make it the guide for our conduct?
If we were to live continually in the Presence of God, our lives would be angelic, rather than human, for we would not allow ourselves to commit even the slightest sin, nor to be guilty of the least thought, word or action, which might offend Him.
The more we fail in our awareness of the Presence of God, the more disordered our actions become.
Let us resolve, therefore, to live continually in the Presence of God and to direct all our thoughts, desires and actions towards Him.”

Antonio Cardinal Bacci

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.
