Quote/s of the Day – 26 January – St Polycarp

Quote/s of the Day – 26 January – St Polycarp (69-155) Martyr, Bishop of Smyrna (Asia Minor), Apostolic Father

Eighty and six years have I served Christ,
nor has He ever done me any harm.
How, then, could I blaspheme my King, Who saved Me?
…. I bless Thee for deigning me worthy
of this day and this hour
that I may be among Thy Martyrs
and drink the cup of my Lord Jesus Chris
t.”

Beware of greed and remain pure and just.
Restrain yourself from every vice.
He who cannot restrain himself,
how will he be able to teach others restraint?

Help one another with the generosity of the Lord
and despise no-one.
When you have the opportunity to do good,
do not let it go by.

Prayer Before His Martyrdom
By St Polycarp (69–155)

Lord God Almighty,
Father of Jesus Christ,
Thy dear Son,
through Whom we have come to know Thee,
God of the Angels and Powers,
God of all creation,
God of those who live in Thy Presence,
the race of the just,
I bless Thee.
Thou hast considered me worthy
of this day and hour,
worthy to be numbered with the Martyrs
and to drink the cup of Thy Anointed One,
and thus to rise and live forever,
body and soul,
in the incorruptibility of the Holy Spirit
.
Amen

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! 🙏
