Thought for the Day – 12 December – Peace of Soul

Thought for the Day – 12 December – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

Peace of Soul

“Peace of soul is more to be desired than anything else in this world.
Wealth, honours and pleasures are valueless, as long as we are discontented and disturbed at heart.
Happiness is essentially internal, not external.
Anyone who looks for it outside himself cannot find it, simply because it does not exist there.
Interior peace, however, is capable of bringing us whatever happiness can be obtained in this world.

We can have this peace if, we avoid sin.
The Holy Spirit assures us that “there is no peace for the wicked” (Isa 48:22).
Our tranquillity will be increased by humility and gentleness.
A haughty and ambitious man can never be at peace.

Come to me” Jesus invites us, “all you who labour and are burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart and you will find rest for your soul” (Mt 11:28-29).

The only way then, by which we can acquire peace of soul, is by avoiding sin, practising humility and obeying the law of God.
The Saints possessed this serenity, even in times of trial and of suffering because they lived in God and were perfectly faithful to His law.”

Antonio Cardinal Bacci



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! 🙏
