Just very tired

So, so tired, 200 days without pause … I need a little rest. πŸ™πŸ’˜ Ana



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. Dearest Carol
      Your beautiful words already rejuvenate me – bless you a thousand times for the depth of your love! I am refreshed just reading them! Many, many thanks. I am so happy to know you are in this ‘room’ with me before the Lord and our Saint friends, in heaven.
      And thank you for following and reading the posts – sometimes one feels lonely.
      You will remain in my heart and in my prayers too. πŸ’–πŸ™πŸ˜‡


    1. Thank you and bless you too dear Rita!
      I struggle to rest, being a bit of a ‘Martha” please pray that I learn to sit quietly at His feet. πŸ’–


  2. β€œIn labore requies,” we sing of the Holy Ghost all this week. May He come to you and be your rest, even as one day He will be your reward, dear Ana. I will remember you at Mass and Office. Bishop Dolan

    1. Thank you dear Rev Bishop. In the Holy Ghost, all will be well soon. May His comfort and power renew me. And thank you so much for the prayers, especially at Holy Mass, so badly needed.
      May the Beloved bless you too.


    1. I know you are correct – you of all people, who tear yourself in so many pieces each day to give to all who need you – but like you, it is not always easy to ‘rest’ is it?
      Bless you dear friend and for your Rosary tonight, thank you!

      1. I just read it and I thank you Caitlynne. Yes, we need our health first before we can complete any mission.
        May we always give our first hour to God and then let Him guide and lead us with all the following hours.
        May He bless you as you struggle with the overload which seems a constant in your life!

    1. Dear FrenchKnight – thank you most kindly and most especially for your prayers.
      It is a joy to have you with me here – a truly brave soul you are in the midst of the chaos in the Church and the world.
      I pray I will be refreshed soon.
      My prayers are yours too. πŸ™πŸ’–

    1. My dear, dear Fran your words are a joy to my tired heart and an impetus to hurry and come back with renewed energy.
      You thrill me, for when I began this little mission, it was for the saving of my own soul and then any who would be touched by their power. Nothing could be more joyful than to know, that this mission is achieving some success! I too, miss my daily ‘light.’
      My husband, who looks so forward to his quiet time with the posts, is crying and performing πŸ˜‚. Sleep he says, so that you can hurry back.
      May the beloved Lord keep you ever in the beauty of His love. πŸ™πŸ˜‡πŸ’–

    1. Dear Marie and Pauline
      Thank you for your good wishes.
      I am trying to rest – not so easy for me – hopefully I will succeed and be refreshed very soon.
      A Blessed Pentecost to you both too. May the Holy Ghost be our comfort, our solace and our rest.


  6. Dear Ana

    I just felt the need to reach out to you when I saw your messages explaining that you are tired.

    Please know that I for one, completely appreciate the work you do, and am grateful to God for giving you the grace to take it on.

    Do take care of yourself, and get all the rest you need. Everybody needs a break.

    God bless you for all you do.

    Best Wishes

    1. Dear Ekanem
      How beautifully you express yourself and how much your words mean to me.
      It is natural that sometimes I wonder what I am doing and why but, as you say, God has given me the desire and the grace to spend these many hours doing HIS WORK. Very, very often, I do feel the presence of the Holy Spirit, inspiring and oftentimes, actually finding the needed image and/or Saints’ words on my behalf.
      You are all constantly in my heart and in my prayers, that my journey will be your journey too.
      As you say, everyone needs a break. Now I really feel I might have a bug or just general tiredness due to the change of seasons here in Cape Town.
      May our Beloved Lord, His Holy Mother and all our Holy Saintly company, be with you and yours always. πŸ™πŸ’–πŸ™Œ


  7. Understandable … our dedication is great but needs a reset once in a while … and this presuppose a get away from it all. Take your time and make a spiritual retreat if possible!
