Quote of the Day – 19 September – The Feast of Our Lady of La Salette

“If my people will not submit,
I shall be forced to let fall
the arm of my Son.
It is so strong, so heavy,
that I can no longer withhold it.
… ‘Six days I have given you to labour,
the seventh I have kept for Myself –
and they will not give it to Me.’
It is this which makes
the arm of my Son so heavy.”

Our Lady of la Salette
19 September 1846
To Maximin Giraud (11)
and Melanie Calvat (14)


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. "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 bless you 🙏

      1. Ana, just yesterday I was telling one of my children than in times of trial, I am so glad that have the Mother of God and so many saint-friends to turn to for guidance and wisdom and comfort. Many people already do that with their own friends and loved ones, so, yes, I don’t always understand why devotions to Mother Mary and the saints seem to set some people off. I know we have Jesus and we have Him for all time, but in a family, each member will have something to offer for the communal good, and for me, being able to rest myself in their hearts and to receive their giving means a lot. Besides, none of them, not the Mother of God and not the saints, have ever kept me for themselves. The deeper my devotions to them, the closer they take me to God.

      2. Yes Caitlynne our Mother our Hope! And the help and inspiration of the Saints is an immense gift and blessing from God.
        I do know, that in the Afrikaans Church in South Africa – in their ‘catechism’ – I have seen and heard with my own eyes and ears, that they actively teach the so-called ‘evils’ and ‘idolatry’ of the Catholic Church, They call us ‘Die Roomse Gevaar’ – ‘The Roman Danger!’
