 Quote/s of the Day – 10 August – The Feast of St Lawrence of Rome

“Sheltered under the name of Jesus Christ,
I do not fear these pains, for they do not last long.”

“Learn, unhappy man, how great is the power of my God;
for your burning coals give me refreshment
but they will be your eternal punishment.”

St Lawrence

learn unhappy man - st lawrence

“(St Lawrence) loved Christ in his life, he imitated Him in his death…After all, we shall not be able to give a better proof of love than by imitating His example…”

“Christ humbled himself:  you have something, Christian, to latch on to.
Christ became obedient. – Why do you behave proudly?
After running the course of these humiliations and laying death low,
Christ ascended into heaven – let us follow Him there.
Let us listen to the Apostle telling us, ‘If you have risen with Christ,
savour the things that are above and is, seated at God’s right hand.’ “

(From a sermon delivered by St. Augustine in about 400 AD on the occasion of the Feast of Saint Lawrence.)

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.
