Thought for the Day – 11 July – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
“Vanity destroys whatever is good in our actions and makes them useless in the sight of God.
It robs our good actions of all merit because they should be done only for the glory of God, whereas we are performing them for our own glory.
We want them to be seen by others so that we shall be honoured by men as noble and holy.
If our actions have been motivated by self-interest, rather than by the desire for the glory of God, we shall hear, at the judgement seat of God the terrible condemnation:
“You have received your reward” (Cf Mt 6:2).
If we have sought our own satisfaction instead of God’s glory during our lifetime, we shall not receive an everlasting reward!”
Antonio Cardinal Bacci
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.
