Thought for the Day – 27 December – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

St John the Apostle and Evangelist

“St John proved himself worthy of His Master’s special favour.
He never deserted Christ.

He was present at the Agony in Gethsemane.
He was in the courtyard of the High Priest, when Peter denied Christ but he remained faithful.
He was the only Apostle present at the foot of the Cross on Mount Calvary, where, he was privileged to hear Our Lord’s last words.

After the Resurrection, John was one of the first to hurry to the sepulchre.
Like the other Apostles, he proved his undying love for Jesus, by enduring the pains of Martyrdom, although his life was miraculously spared.
He spent his long life studying how to love and serve Jesus Christ.
Can the same be said for us?

We have not been granted the privileges given to St John but, we have received countless favours from God.

Let us learn from the example of this great Apostle, how to co-operate generously with the grace of God, for how many times have we deserted Christ!

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.
