SAINTS DAYS

“Our labour here is brief, but the reward is eternal...”

“I thank you, O Lord, that I am permited to enter your portals.”

“Who can sleep on the night that God became man?”

“A man who governs his passions is master of his world”

Jesus answered, “Martha Martha, you worry and fret about so many things, and yet few are needed, indeed only one. It is Mary who has chosen the better part; it is not to be taken from her.”

Luke 10 : 41-42

GRANDPARENTS OF JESUS

Grandparents are a treasure... the wisdom our grandparents have is something we must welcome as an inheritance.

Pope Francis, November 2013

ST JAMES, APOSTLE, July 25

Anyone who wants to be great among you must be your servant, and anyone who wants to be first among you must be your slave, just as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Matthew 20 : 26-28

St James the Greater by Guido Reni (1575-1642)

ST MARY MAGDALEN, July 21

 On my bed at night I sought him whom my heart loves. I sought but I did not find him. So I will rise and go through the City; in the streets and the squares I will seek him whom my heart loves. I sought him but I did not find him. The watchmen came upon me on their rounds in the City: “Have you seen him whom my heart loves?” Scarcely had I passed them than I found him who my heart loves. 

Song of Songs 3 : 1-4

THE MAGDALEN READING by Rogier van der Weyden

“Prayer ought to be short and pure, unless it be

prolonged by the inspiration of Divine grace.”
