Thought for the Day – 16 February – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
The Duties of Our State
“Some are called by God to the lofty state of the Ptiesthood, or of the Religious Life.
This is a very great grace.
We should co-operate generously and do our best to overcome any obstacles we meet.
Others are called to become good Catholic fathers and mothers and to rear a family.
This is a most important role because4, the proper education of children and the future of the Church and of society, depend on it.
Every position has its obligations, which each of us should work hard to fulfil in every detail.
The grace appropriate to our state will be available to us.
But, this grace has to be balanced by a sincere determination on our part, to carry out carefully, the duties of our state.
Let us examine ourselves in this regard.
If we discover that we have been neglectful, or deficient in any way, let us resolve to put things right – without delay!”
Antonio Cardinal Bacci
PART ONE HERE:
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.
