Thought for the Day – 15 July – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
The Voice of God
“Be not silent Lord, be not far from me” (Ps 34:22).
It is never really God Who is silent.
He is forever appealing to us to lead good lives.
He is never really far from us but is always ready to bestow His gifts on us.
Even when we have sinned, we hear His Voice prompting us to thoughts of remorse.
Even when we stray away from Him, He follows and asks us to return to Him.
It is we, who must ensure that the noise of the world, will not prevent us from hearing His Fatherly appeal and that sinful temptations will not destroy His influence over us.
Let us continually implore His graces because we are always in need of them.
Let us use them well, so that they will enable us to gain everlasting life.”
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.
