Thought for the Day –11 April – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)
“What desires have we?
Are they all directed towards holiness and towards Jesus, our Lord and our Redeemer?
Or are they all for useless worldly things?
In times of physical or spiritual affliction, do we make sure that our desires are in conformity with and subject to, the will of God?
Let us examine ourselves seriously.
If we find that any of our desires are vain or sinful, let us change this state of affairs at once.
Let us make God the object of all the longing in our hearts.
Let us ask Him always for those virtues which are really necessary for us, especially for an increase in our love for Him and in our readiness to do His will.”
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.
