Thought for the Day – 15 March

In different times we hold up different models as examples of holiness. In our present time, we find holiness in people such as St John Paul, St Mother Teresa and St Padre Pio. They were people so grounded in prayer and their relationship with Christ that action must flow from them.   They were each able to stand up strong about the rights and dignity of all people despite the opposition all around them.

St. Louise de Marillac, co-founder of the Daughters of Charity, died in 1660.   Yet, she wasn’t canonized until 1934.   I believe it is because she is a saint for this present time. She was a great leader and changed the face of social work forever– all this because Christ was the centre of her life.

Through this season of Lent and into Easter, have we grown in holiness?   Have we focused our lives more on Christ?   Do we reach out more to those in need as Christ did?   Especially those considered outcasts of mainstream society?   If not, the blessing is we still have today, tomorrow and the next days to work on it!”   (From the 2010 article What Does Holiness Look Like?, by Sr. Denise LaRock, DC)

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "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 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 is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
