Thought for the Day – 24 June – Belonging Entirely to God

Thought for the Day – 24 June – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

Belonging Entirely to God

What more could He have done in order to merit our love?
If He has loved us as much as to give Himself completely, why are we grudging in our relations with Him?
Why do we share our hearts between Him and the world, or worse still, between Him and sin!

There is nothing to prevent us from loving creatures, as well as God but, they should be loved in God and for God.
They should form a ladder, which enables us to climb towards God.

Every disproportionate affection, whether in regard to ourselves, or to others, is an injury to God.
If we really belong entirely to God, we should be at peace.
Since virtue is difficult, it is difficult to belong completely to God but, the effort gives us a foretaste of the happiness of Heaven.

If we really love God, nothing is difficult but everything seems simple and pleasant.
Perfect union with God, will give us the pure joy, which the Saints experienced.”

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! 🙏
