Thought for the Day – 23 January – Mediocrity

Thought for the Day – 23 January – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

Mediocrity

“Mediocrity in the spiritual life, inevitably paves the way for sin.
Indifference at prayer, listlessness in practising charity and habitual neglect of our duties in life, lead firstly, to deliberate venial sin and finally, to mortal sin.
If we are not generous with Jesus, Jesus will CEASE to be generous with us!
He will NO LONGER shower us with His grace.
Deprived of this heavenly dew, our souls will grow dry, shrivelled and incapable of producing fruits worthy of eternal life.

Let us get rid of any tendency towards lassitude.
Let us revive the divine charity in ourselves.
Let us make firmer resolutions and pray more fervently, that the grace of God will make us capable of greater effort.
TIME IS SHORT – DO NOT DELAY!”

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. "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.
