Quote/s of the Day –7 February – St Romuald

Quote/s of the Day –7 February – The Memorial of St Romuald, Abbot (c 951-1027) – Ecclus 45:1-6, Matthew 19:27-29.

“Better to pray one psalm
with devotion and compunction,
than a hundred. with distraction.

Sit in your cell as in paradise.
Put the whole world
behind you and forget it.
Watch your thoughts
like a good fisherman
watching for fish.

“Realise above all,
that you are in God’s presence
and stand there
with the attitude
of one, who stands
before the Emperor
.”

St Romuald (c 951-1027)

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.

  1. I always held St Romuald in great esteem since he triggered the clerical reformation movement in the 11th century: founder of the Camaldulese, he was followed later on by Robert de Molesme (Cistercians), saint Bruno (Carthusians) and Pope Gregory VII (Gregorian reformation). He died June 19, 1027.
