Thought for the Day – 14 April – The Divided Heart

Thought for the Day – 14 April – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

The Divided Heart

Remember Our Lord’s warning that it is impossible to serve two masters.
We cannot serve God and at the same time be preoccupied eith self-love, worldly pleasure and sin.
Look at the Saints.
Their hearts were never divided but belonged wholly to God.
They did everything in their power to keep their hearts pure and burning with love for Him.
They suffered because of their slightest imperfections and longed to remain always close to God.
We should imitate them.
We have to look after our daily duties, it is true but everything should be done for the love and glory of God.
All our actions should constitute a spiritual ladder which brings us closer and closer to God.

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! 🙏
