Thought for the Day – 7 August – The Memorial of St Cajetan

St Cajetan sought first and foremost, the will of the Lord in his life.
Dedicated not only to Church reform but to also reform of the evils of the world he encountered on a daily basis, this humble saint gave all that he had to service of those around him.
He worked with the poorest of the poor, the sickest of the sick, the most undesirable souls he could find—nursing them physically back to help, assisting with their finances and most of all, he worked hard to save and convert their souls.
The greatest need of the time was the reformation of a Church that was “sick in head and members.”
Cajetan and three friends decided that the best road to reformation lay in reviving the spirit and zeal of the clergy.
Together they founded a congregation known as the Theatines–from Teate [Chieti] where their first superior-bishop had his see. One of these friends later became Pope Paul IV.
Saint Cajetan is a model of obedience, service and Christian charity—three virtues we can all ascribe to.
We pray for the intercession of St Cajetan, that we, too, may turn our gaze from our own lives to those around us in greater need.

St Cajetan, 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.
