Thought for the Day – 14 February – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

The Early Hours of the Day

Unfortunately, there are many who never give the slightest thought to God when they rise in the morning.
Or perhaps they think that a quick mechanical Sign of the Cross satisfies all their religious obligations.

A good Catholic could not behave in this fashion.
He kneels to say his morning prayers and raises his mind and heart to God in acts of thanksgiving, reparation and love.

Only in this way, can he begin the day with peace and confidence, knowing that during it, he will have continual need of God’s assistance.

If hitherto you have not behaved like this, make up your mind to begin everyday in future, by offering yourself to God, along with all your work, plans and worries.
This offering will be a wonderful spiritual advantage throughout the day.”

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.
