Thought for the Day – 27 May

St Augustine of Canterbury comes across today as a very human saint, one who could suffer like many of us from a failure of nerve.    For example, his first venture to England ended in a big U-turn back to Rome.    He made mistakes and met failure in his peacemaking attempts with the Briton Christians.    He often wrote to Rome for decisions on matters he could have decided on his own had he been more self-assured.    He even received mild warnings against pride from Pope Gregory, who cautioned him to “fear lest, amidst the wonders that are done, the weak mind be puffed up by self-esteem.” Augustine’s perseverance amidst obstacles and only partial success teaches today’s apostles and pioneers to struggle on despite frustrations and be satisfied with gradual advances.  by Fr. Don Miller, OFM

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.
