Quote/s of the Day – 13 November – St Stanislaus Kostka SJ (1550-1568) Jesuit Novice
“Consider how difficult it is,
for a person to be separated from any place,
he has loved deeply.
How much more difficult,
the soul will find it
when the time comes to leave the mortal body,
its companion so dear.
And the great fear it will experience
in that moment because its salvation
is at stake and it must stand
in the presence of the One it has so offended.
If the just man will scarcely be saved,
what about me a sinner?”
“What have I done for Christ?
What am I doing for Christ?
What ought I do for Christ?”
St Stanislaus Kostka SJ (1550-1568)
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.

Always had great devotion for Stanislaus Kostka since he was my patron saint in the Trappist life (I was known as Father Stanislaus for the duration of my monastic life). While in Rome (for my studies), I would regularly visit his Church in front of the piazza del Quirinale.
