Thought for the Day – 26 November – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

The Glory of God

The whole of creation manifests the glory of God.
The grass on the field, the trees of the forest, the insects and birds of the air, the creatures on the earth and in the sea, the stars in the sky – they all speak to us of the power and beauty of the Creator.
You also were created by and for God, Who is the beginning and end of all things.
In all thoughts, actions and affections, therefore, you should seek the Glory of God.
God, indeed, has no need of your small contribution to enhance His Glory.
His Glory is complete and perfect in Himself, in Heaven and in Hell, God does not need you but you need God.
It is your strict obligation, not only to proclaim the Glory of God but, also to work for its triumph in yourself and in all things.

The man who loves God above all things, seeks only His Glory.
The man who loves himself more than he loves God, however, seeks his own petty worldly glorification and strays away from the main road of life, which should lead him towards God.

Antonio Cardinal Bacci

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.
