Thought for the Day – 20 July – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
“It is a difficult thing to control and to direct our natural inclinations.
It requires perseverance, sacrifice and the grace of God, for which we should always pray.
Often, this struggle will last a lifetime and we can still fall, even after many years of combat.
It is important, however, never to give up.
If we accept defeat and quietly submit to the tyranny of sinful passions, we are lost forever.
It is a poor outlook too, for a Catholic who ends up by being satisfied with a life of worthless mediocrity.
We must fight hard, pray fervently and value nothing higher than the love of Christ.
When we are finally victorious, our joy will be greater than any happiness which the world can give.”
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.
