Power Cut! Again … πŸ˜ͺ

Last night and then again this morning, our power was cut. Our power supplier, here in South Africa, calls it “load shedding.”

I am posting what I can in the time available.

Blessed Laetare Sunday to you all! Let us all be joyful, power or not!



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. 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. 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 I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! πŸ™

  1. It took a power cut to tell me you were South African!
    I hope power is reinstated soon. Life just doesn’t seem to the same without it. I love those pictures of old stone cottages with their ancient kitchens and I love Old World cooking – but to imagine going completely rustic – without power and modern amenities – that’s where the daydreaming ends for me πŸ˜€

    1. Absolute agreement Caitlynne.
      But you know, here in SA (thought you knew πŸ€”) millions – not 100s or 1000s – millions! live daily and all their lives, without power!
      So who am I to complain – except for the posts of course.
      I try very hard to accept it as a penance.
      It’s a long story of why this is happening and if I were to tell you, it would sound racist.
      Now we have a Dutchman controlling our central Power Supplier, and things are slowly improving but he still needs to ‘loadshed’ regularly but at least now, we are warned before it happens.
      P.S. I am a South African of Italian and Spanish background and married to a Dutchman too – a “gemors” as it would be called in Afrikaans.

      1. Tell me when you have the time, Ana. I understand racism pretty well – we are subjected to it every day, it seems.
        The little I know of SA comes from documentaries. Beautiful country with more than its share of problems.
        I did not know of your heritage but had this feeling that family came strong for you… odd turn of phrase…
        Today will be a challenging day here. That’s going up for you, Ana.

      2. Hi Caitlynne – yes this is an amazingly beautiful country – very large (for example the whole British Isles would fit into the Cape Province, 3 times if I remember correctly). We also have beautiful, happy and warm people and because of our history, very resilient people.
        The world has a biased idea about SA in many respects but problems – those we do have – mostly related to the root of evil. those ugly words MONEY and PRIDE!
