Thought for the Day – 15 July – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

A Life of Fervour

“God is our Creator and absolute Master, Whom the Angels adore and irrational creatures obey.
His greatness demands that we should offer all our activities to Him in a spirit of fervent and loving dedication.
Since we have received everything from Him, we have many reasons for loving Him.
By the work of redemption, God became our Friend and our Brother and the Victim of Expiation for our sins.
How could we remain indifferent and ungrateful when we remember the favours which we have received .
Love desires love in return and God loves us so much that He became man and shed His Blood for us.
Moreover, He immolates Himself continually on our behalf, in the Sacrifice of the Eucharist.
Finally, our fervour should be increased, by the reflection, that God has reserved for us, an everlasting reward, His own Beatific Vision.

All these considerations should help us to increase the fervour of our love.
Then our actions will form a ladder of ascent to God, by means of which, we shall become intimately united to Him.

Antonio Cardinal Bacci

Passionate Catholic. Being 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 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.
