Thought for the Day – 20 July – Memorial of St Apollinaris

Following Jesus involves risks—sometimes the supreme risk of life itself.   Martyrs, like St Apollinaris, are people who would rather accept the risk of death than deny the cornerstone of their whole life:  faith in Jesus Christ.
Everyone will die eventually—the persecutors and those persecuted.
The question is what kind of a conscience people will bring before the Lord for judgment.   Remembering the witness of past and present martyrs can help us make the often small sacrifices that following Jesus today may require.
There are no patterns and the saints break all molds.
God is interested in us right where we are and our own particular circumstances are as good a place as any to be a saint.   Holiness is within our reach!

St Apollinaris and all you saints in heaven, 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.
