Quote/s of the Day – 31 January – St John Bosco

Quote/s of the Day – 31 January – The Memorial of St John Bosco (1815-1888)

“Do not try to excuse your faults;
try to correct them.

Ask your Angel to console
and assist you
in your last moments.

“Be ever more convinced
that your Guardian Angel
is really present,
that he is ever at your side.
St Frances of Rome
always saw him standing before her,
his arms clasped at his breast,
his eyes uplifted to Heaven

but, at the slightest failing,
he would cover his face,
as if in shame
and at times,
turn his back to her!

“Entrust everything to Jesus
in the Blessed Sacrament
and to Mary, Help of Christians
and you will see
what miracles are

St John Bosco (1815-1888)




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! 🙏

    1. You are so right Fr Jacques – pitiful we are indeed. But I must tell you that I am now seeking daily forgiveness for my past error in failing to honour my Angel.
      For, with this near blindness of my left eye, I constantly ask help from my Angel, who, regardless of my previous ignorance, never fails to come to my aid!
      I am so grateful.

      1. My left eye is also near extinction (macula + failed cataract surgery). Grateful for my right eye but it needs surveillance because of a beginning of macula degeneration. My mother had both, yet she died at 105 !

  1. Aaah that disease is worse than mine, in the sense that it is almost impossible to halt the process 😒 Was your Mom still able to see at all, at that age, Fr?
