Quote/s of the Day – 30 September – St Jerome

Quote/s of the Day – 30 September –The Memorial of St Jerome (347-419) Confessor, Father and Doctor of the Church

The Scriptures are shallow enough,
for a babe to come and drink,
without fear of drowning
and deep enough,
for a theologians to swim in,
without ever touching the bottom!

When we pray, we speak to God
but when we read, God speaks to us.

Early impressions are difficult
to eradicate from the mind.
When once wool has been dyed purple,
who can restore it
to its previous whiteness?

It is worse still,
to be ignorant
of your ignorance.

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. "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 bless you 🙏
