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

The New Year

It is suggested in the Imitation of Christ that if we were to get rid of, at least, one habit of sin every year, we should soon be holy.
If we have not tried to do this in the past, let us do it in the future.
This year let us select the principal defect which we possess, the sin into which we are most accustomed to fall.
Let us seek to eradicate it with all the strength of our soul, assisted by the grace of God which will certainly not be denied us.

Let us request, for this purpose, the most powerful patronage of Mary, Most Holy.
Let us pass this day in close union with God and under the maternal mantle of our Heavenly Mother.

Finally, let us promise earnestly that all the days of the New Year, will follow the same pattern.”

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. 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. 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 I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
