Thy Will be done

My little rest and battery charging plans were certainly not meant to be, for within a day of signing off and waving you all goodbye, I became ill with a horrid cold which turned into a bronchial episode.
Then the rest of the family too fell victim to this violent ‘change-of-season’ cold.

And now, it is nearly Ascension Thursday and I am still struggling to regain full strength.
BUT, I will be back shortly (by Wednesday or Thursday), God willing and with the help of your prayers, for which I thank and bless you πŸ™πŸ€—

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.

  1. Oh my dear Ana,

    I was delighted to see your email but sad to hear that you’ve been ill. I’m storming heavens and pleading for your quick recovery.

    Get well soon. We missed you!

    God speed.

    Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam

    1. Dear Dear Stacy – I bless those prayers of yours – I know our Beloved Lord will hear and answer such heartfelt pleas on my behalf.
      I miss you too and look forward to your wonderful participation and your friendship.
      THANK YOU! πŸ™ŒπŸ’˜


  2. Dear Ana,

    I’m so sorry to hear that your plans resting and recharging your batteries has turned out to be through illness rather than relaxation. I pray that you feel better very soon and come out the other side of it feeling as refreshed and rejuvenated as you were hoping! How disappointing, it always seems the way that as soon as there’s an opportunity to stop and slow down any loitering lurgies strike!

    Thank you as always for the heart filled spiritual inspiration you send to our inboxes. I loved your recent one for the feast of Our Lady of Montserrat, especially as we had been there the previous week for a few days with a small group. It is such a special place, a little glimmer of heaven on earth. We managed to join morning and evening prayer with the monks and every evening our Priest friend with us was able to say Mass in the chapel behind Our Lady’s statue, it felt very upper roomish, like we were the disciples after the resurrection with Jesus coming amongst us. I am attaching a very short video montage, as I know you have been there yourself, in case you would like a micro virtual pilgrimage there!

    May God bless you abundantly (even if it is with unwanted illnesses)!

    Lots of love and prayers,

    Catherine (in Tonbridge, Kent)

    1. Dearest Catherine
      Thank you! Such a beautiful video and message. You have given me a most heavenly gift – your words and wonderful video have lifted my drooping spirits and stopped me feeling so sorry for myself!
      Now – by the grace of God with the prayers of the great friends He has brought into my life, I will soon overcome those lurgies and little demons.

      Our Lady of Montserrat will cure all my remaining aches and pains.πŸ™πŸ™ŒπŸ’˜
      And may she always bless you Catherine and your loved ones.


  3. Sometimes, in my case always, recovery goes beyond the illness. Take it easy and I know you cover us with reruns from your stores for quite awhile. You can always count on my love and support. Hughie
