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 🙏

  1. I very much enjoyed reading the account of the life of Matt Talbot. The general outline of his life is well known to me, as my mother told me about him when I was a child. You have added detail to my knowledge. He is one of a number of lay Dubliners who were sort of contemporaries and whose causes for veneration/beatification are under consideration, including Frank Duff and Edel Quinn. Matt Talbot is such an important example for us in Dublin where addiction is such a scourge. Sadly, the very parishes mentioned in your account are among the worst hit. Matt Talbot, pray for us…

    1. Oh how lovely Anne Marie that he is part of your life! I have a great reverence for him – I admire his stoicism and fortitude. Also, his great Eucharistic devotion and the fact that he shared his own experiences in works of social reform.
      Would it not have been those same Parishes – nearby where he lived – would always have been an area possibly of social deprivation and therefore, of alcoholism?
