Thought for the Day – 29 May

Today, the congregation founded by Mother Ursula continues its work around the world, numbering at approximately 900 nuns and 100 communities in 12 countries including Poland, Italy, France, Germany, Finland, Belarus, Ukraine, Canada, Brazil, Argentina and Tanzania.    St Ursula educated her sisters to love God above all things and to see God in every human person and all creation.   As a shining example of faith and complete trust in the Lord, she demonstrated her confidence through tireless work, constant smile, serenity of spirit, humility and the desire to live an ordinary life as a privileged path to holiness.   Throughout her life, during a difficult political period, including the First World War, Julia maintained a constant focus on helping the poor, displaced and forgotten.   When questioned about her political views, often at risk to her own life, she simply and repeatedly replied, “My policy is love.”

And there we have it – so often told us, most importantly by our Lord, the answer is clear – to be saints, our policy has to be LOVE!

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.
