Quote of the Day – 1 May – Friday of the Third Week of Easter
By Fr Dennis John Burns (1920-2009)
Blue waters, blue as Mary’s eyes
God scatters with a lavish hand,
On every land.
Made lovely with soft, silver light,
God wraps about the world when day
Has slipped away.
Holds up a golden-flowered shield
Against the shining shafts of sun,
Yet each is won.
God spills to bring to earth again
New freshness. Then like sudden tears
The vagabonding summer breeze,
The golden days and silver nights
His will unites
And when His work of love is done,
His will decrees a holiday,
The month of May.
That she, as pure as summer sky,
Who found within an earth-born Boy
What earth contained of joy and pain
Might find her full content of joy
On earth again.
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.
