Thought for the Day – 2 May

At certain periods in Church history, it is one man who saves the Church for orthodoxy, one human instrument that Goduses to further His work.   Athanasius suffered many trials while he was bishop of Alexandria.    He was given the grace to remain strong against what probably seemed at times to be insurmountable opposition.    Athanasius lived his office as bishop completely.    He defended the true faith for his flock, regardless of the cost to himself.    In today’s world we are experiencing this same call to remain true to our faith, no matter what.   We should all realise how important we are to the good of others and that, without us, certain people would never hear of God or come to a knowledge of Jesus Christ.   Upon our orthodoxy and fidelity may well depend the growth in faith of many others – what a thought!   Therefore, we need to learn and know the truth as St Athanasius said “You will not see anyone who is really striving after his advancement who is not given to spiritual reading. And as to him who neglects it, the fact will soon be observed by his progress.”

St Athanasius, pray for us!

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.
