Thought for the Day – 1 November – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

The Feast of All Saints

“In these days when the Church is so anxious to foster devotion to the Saints, let us fervently invoke their patronage.
They are our brothers and they reach out lovingly to assist us because, they desire us to share in their glory.

As we know, the Church is threefold.
There is the Church Militant, to which we belong; there is the Church Suffering, which consists of the souls in Purgatory and there is the Church Triumphant, which is made up of the Blessed in Heaven.
The bond of charity unites all three divisions.

We, who are still on earth, have brothers and sisters in eternal glory who love us and intercede for us.
Let us pray to them fervently and constantly.
Above all, let us seek to imitate the sanctity which won such glory for them in Heaven.

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. "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 🙏
