Quote/s of the Day – 24 February – Feast of St Matthias, Apostle and Martyr – Acts 1:15-26, Matthew 11:25-30

You did not choose me
but I chose you and appointed you
that you should go
and bear fruit
and that your fruit should abide”

John 15:16

They spoke with such confidence
because someone had to be appointed.
They did not say “choose”
but “make known to us” the chosen one;
“the one you choose,” they said,
fully aware, that everything
was being preordained by God.

St John Chrysostom (347-407)
Father and Doctor

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.
