Quote/s of the Day – 10 October – The Memorial of St Francis Borgia SJ (1510-1572)

This death … has already levelled
his bow to strike me.
Is it not prudent to prevent its stroke,
by dying now to the world,
that at my death,
I may live to God?

O sensual, base,
miserable and blind life!
is it possible, that men should be
such strangers to their own happiness,
such enemies to themselves,
to be fond of thy false enjoyments
and for their sake,
to deprive themselves of those
that are pure, permanent and solid?!

St Francis Borgia (1510-1572)

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.
