Thought for the Day – 20 May

Thought for the Day – 20 May

In St Bernardine’s day, cursing was almost part of the common speech and he combated it by promoting devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus.
He even had cards printed inscribed with the Holy Name and they were more popular than playing cards..
He knew that you do not root out an evil merely preaching against it, instead you must put something good in its place.
That is a piece of wisdom it would do us well to follow.   Perhaps our attempts should be garnered universally to root out the sacrilegious habit of great portions of the world, which use the name of God and of Jesus in vain, so often with every sentence, so much so, that in public it is now an accepted practice!

St Bernardine of Siena, please 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.
