Quote/s of the Day – 10 November – St Andrew Avellino CR (1521–1608) Confessor

Ah ! what is all that I do and suffer,
ompared with what my Jesus did
and suffered for my sake?
O, that I might, for His honour,
be torn with scourges and pierced with nails
and expire on the Cross for Him!

One cannot separate
the most Holy Eucharist
from the Passion of Jesus.

St Andrew Avellino (1521–1608)

It has been curiously remarked
by St Andrew Avellino
that those who have a special devotion
to the Passion, generally die
quiet and sweet deaths,
as the Virgin Mary, St John the Evangelist
and St Mary Magdalen did.
Certainly, it is remarkable that,
while most of those close to Our Lord
died violent deaths,
the three who assisted at Calvary,
should have died so softly,
as if already their real death had been died there!

Father Frederick William Faber CO (1814-1863)

(From Spiritual Conferences)

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 🙏
