Thought for the Day – 15 March – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
The Consolation of Prayer
“There are moments when we are overcome by a very deep sadness.
It maybe an illness, the result of which could be death or inability to work.
Perhaps it is an insult or calumny which has crushingly humiliated us.
Or perhaps it is some sin into which we have fallen so seriously that we are close to despair.
Somehow, our cross seems too heavy to bear.
It is now that we are in special need of prayer.
We can find peace and resignation.
God is infinitely good and loves us with a fatherly love.
Let us run confidently to Him.
If we pray with humility and perseverance, we shall always be comforted.”
Antonio Cardinal Bacci
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.
