“Let go of your plans.
The first hour of your morning belongs to God.
Tackle the day’s work that He charges you with
and He will give you the power to accomplish it.”

“You asked about my name-patron.
Of course, it is holy Father Benedict.
He adopted me and gave me the rights of home in his Order,
even though I was not even an Oblate,
since I always had Mount Carmel before my eyes.”

“The walls of our monasteries enclose a narrow space.
To erect the structure of holiness in it,
one must dig deep and build high,
must descend into the depths
of the dark night of one’s own nothingness,
in order to be raised up high
into the sunlight of divine love and compassion.”

“Those who remain silent
are responsible.”

“We cannot separate love for God from love for man.
We acknowledge God easily but our brother?
Those with whom we do not identify –
his background, education, race, complexion.
We could not have imagined that love for God could be so hard.”

we cannot separate love for god from love for man - st teresa benedicta 9 aug 2020

“All that we do is a means to an end
but love is an end in itself
because God is love.”

“Love will be our eternal life.”

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.
