Thought for the Day – 27 February – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

Evening Prayer

“We should pray all the time because we always need the help of God.
They must always pray and not lose heart” (Lk 18:11).
There are certain times, however, when this need of God is greater than usual.
This is so when we are tempted, or when we are threatened by some evil, whether spiritual or physical.
Our need is also greater when we have some important decision to make, or difficult task to undertake.
When we are close to death, this need of God is exceptionally urgent.

Apart from these occasions, there is a time everyday, when we should feel a special need to kneel and pray to God..
This is when we are going to bed.
Before retiring, we should kneel by the bedside and say our prayers fervently.
We have many reasons for praying –
(1) We should thank God for His graces during the day;
(2) We should ask forgiveness for our lack of co-operation with the gifts He has given us;
(3) We should ask the good God to grant us new fervour.


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. 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! 🙏
