Thought for the Day – 12 August – The Memorial of St Jane Frances de Chantal (1572-1641)

Saint Jane Frances de Chantal left behind a legacy of service, suffering, meekness and obedience.   She was willing to soften herself, giving up control of her life to the Lord and following the direction given to her.   Not without loss and sacrifice, her life was difficult—all of which she embraced with patience and joy.   When the daily struggles of our lives become too great, we might think of the message of St Jane Frances:  “You want to be humble? Try to know yourself well; desire for others to know you as imperfect; love contempt, in all its forms and in any which way it may come.   Don’t hide your defects;  let them be known, accepting with love the abjection that will come by them.   Never let your heart to be weakened because of a fault committed.   Distrust self and trust only and continuously in God, persuaded that not able to do anything by yourselves, you can do all with His grace and powerful help.”

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.
