Thought for the Day – 10 August – The Feast of St Lawrence

“The esteem in which the Church holds Lawrence is seen in the fact that today’s celebration ranks as a feast.   We know very little about his life.   He is one of those whose martyrdom made a deep and lasting impression on the early Church.   Celebration of his feast day spread rapidly.
Once again we have a saint about whom almost nothing is known, yet one who has received extraordinary honour in the Church since the fourth century.   Almost nothing—yet the greatest fact of his life is certain:  He died for Christ.   We who are hungry for details about the lives of the saints are again reminded that their holiness was after all, a total response to Christ, expressed perfectly by a death like this.”  (Fr Don Miller OFM)

St Lawrence, your total and complete response to Christ is our example today, please 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.
