Quote/s of the Day – 8 March – The Memorial of St John of God OH (1495-1550) Confessor, Founder of the Brothers Hospitallers of Saint John of God
“Lord, Thy Thorns are my Roses
and Thy Suffering, my Paradise.”
After receiving the Last Rites
St John said:
“There are three things which make me uneasy:
The first is that I have received
so many graces from God
and have not recognised them
and have repaid them with so little of my own.
The second is that after I am dead,
I fear lest the poor women I have rescued
and the poor sinners I have reclaimed,
may be illtreated.
The third is that those
who have trusted me with money
and whom I have not fully repaid,
may suffer loss on my account.”
St John of God (1495-1550)
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.
