Quote/s of the Day – 11 August – The Memorial of St Clare of Assisi (1194-1253)
“Our labour here is brief
but the reward is eternal.
Do not be disturbed
by the clamour of the world,
which passes like a shadow.
Do not let false delights
of a deceptive world deceive you.”
“Love God, serve God,
everything is in that.”
“Totally love Him,
who gave Himself totally,
for your love.”
“Love that cannot suffer
is not worthy of that name.”
“Happy the soul to whom it is given
to attain this life with Christ …
For He is the Brightness of eternal glory,
the Splendour of eternal light,
the Mirror without spot.”
“O blessed poverty,
who bestows eternal riches
on those who love and embrace her!”
“Never forget that the way
which leads to heaven is narrow;
that the gate leading to life is narrow and low;
that there are but few who find it and enter by it
and, if there be some who go in
and tread the narrow path for some time,
there are but very few who persevere therein.”
St Clare of Assisi (1194-1253)
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.

Saint Clare seems to be slighted by her relationship with St Francis. Did they love one another most definitely,with a love of the highest order – a chaste love. She is a true Hero and I always pay her homage for all she did.
