Quote/s of the Day – 24 August – The Feast of St Bartholomew, Apostle of Christ

“Here is a true child
of Israel.
There is no guile
in him.”

John 1:47

Nathanael answered him,
“Rabbi, you are
the Son of God!
You are the
King of Israel!”

John 1:49

“The saints must be honoured as friends of Christ
and children and heirs of God.
Let us carefully observe the manner of life
of all the Apostles, Martyrs, ascetics
and just men
who announced the coming of the Lord.
And let us emulate their faith,
charity, hope, zeal, life, patience under suffering
and perseverance unto death,
so that we may also share their crowns of glory.”

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

“The Apostles’ glory is so indistinguishable
and so bonded together
by the cement of so many graces,
that in celebrating the feast of one of them,
the common greatness of all,
is called to our interior attention.
For they share together
the same authority of supreme judge,
the same honourable rank
and they hold the same power
to bind and loose (Mt 19:28; 18:18).
They are those precious pearls
that Saint John tells us
he beheld in the Book of Revelation
out of which are constructed
the gates of the heavenly Jerusalem (Rv 21:21.14)…”

St Peter Damian (1007-1072)
Bishop, Doctor of the Church

(Sermon 42, 2nd for Saint Bartholomew, PL 144, 726)


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 site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings but rejects the Second Vatican Council as heretical and, therefore, all that followed it.
