Thought for the Day – 13 June

St Anthony of Padua was a tireless preacher, teacher, defender of the faith.   He brought many back to God by his example and words.   But first he gave himself to God completely.   Like all saints, he is a perfect example of turning one’s life over to Christ. God did with Anthony as God pleased — and what God pleased was a life of spiritual power and brilliance that still attracts admiration today.   He whom popular devotion has nominated as finder of lost objects found himself by losing himself totally to the providence of God.   Preaching was simply the overflow of his own inner life.   For all of us, if God comes first and the cultivation of intimacy with Him, then everything else flows from this, as water flows from its source.

St Anthony of Padua, brilliant star, 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.
