Quote/s of the Day – 13 April – Easter Monday

“…Now since you are celebrating the holy Pasch,
you should know, brethren, what the Pasch is.
Pasch means, the crossing-over
and so, the Festival is called by this name.
For it was on this day, that the Children of Israel,
crossed over out of Egypt
and the Son of God, crossed over from this world to His Father.
What gain is it to celebrate, unless you imitate Him, Whom you worship;
that is, unless you cross over from Egypt,
that is, from the darkness of evildoing, 
to the light of virtue,
from the love of this world, 
to the love of your heavenly home?”

St Ambrose (340-397)
Father & Doctor of the Church

“The Sunday of the Resurrection”

“Now let the heavens be joyful,
Let earth her song begin.
Let the round world keep triumph,
And all that is therein,
Invisible and visible,
Their notes let all things blend,
For Christ the Lord is risen
Our joy that hath no end.”

St John Damascene (675-749)
Father & Doctor of the Church

And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Hail!”

Matthew 28:9

At dawn You were mourned
By women bearing spices,
Grant that my heart may also shed
Tears of fire for Your burning love.

By grace of the angel’s tidings
Shouted from the pinnacle of the rock (Mt 28,2),
Let me hear the last trumpet sound
Proclaiming the Resurrection.

With Your body, born of a Virgin
You were raised from a tomb, virgin and new,
You became for us the first-fruits
And firstborn from the dead

As for me, bound by the Foe
With the evil of bodily sin,
Set me free once more
As You have freed souls in the dwelling of the dead (1Pt 3:19).

You revealed Yourself in the garden
To Mary Magdalene,
But have not consented to approach
One who is yet part of a fallen race.

Show Yourself also to me on the eighth day,
At the great and final dawn
And graciously grant my unworthy soul
To draw near You at that time.

St Nerses Chnorhali (1102-1173)
Armenian Catholic Patriarch

“The astonishing event of the Resurrection of Jesus
is essentially an event of love:
the Father’s love in handing over His Son for the salvation of the world;
the Son’s love in abandoning Himself to the Father’s will for us all;
the Spirit’s love in raising Jesus from the dead in His transfigured body.”

Pope Benedict XVI

Passionate Catholic. 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. "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. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and bless you 🙏
