This Site is dedicated to the storehouse of wisdom on earth, otherwise known as Christ’s Bride, the Catholic Church, the spiritual mother of all Christians, and the fullness of the Truth on earth. The Church is Christ’s spotless Bride but, on earth, she is comprised of sinners. The Church’s treasure troves of knowledge, graces and merits will never be exhausted.

We, in the Church militant, are involved in a daily battle relying on the Lord’s victory and power and not our own. As for those who may have fallen in battle (and we all have) especially those in leadership roles, we should, as Marino Restrepo says, be on our knees praying for them instead of criticising them. If we had prayed and sacrificed more, the Church would be in a far healthier state.

I find it helpful to recall St Therese’s great words: “The power of prayer is tremendous.” and also: “He does much in the sight of God who does his best, be it ever so little” (St Peter of Alcantara). This Site is my ‘little’ for the Lord. May all who visit it be blessed abundantly.
