MY  KITCHEN  PRAYER
God bless my little kitchen, I love its every nook.
And bless me as I do my work, wash pots and pans and cook.

With thy great blessing and thy grace, but most of all thy love!

THIS  WEEK’S  FEASTS
St. John of Capistrano: born in 1386, and after a career as a lawyer, he entered the Franciscan Order and travelled throughout most of Western Europe preaching and strengthening Christian morals. He died, aged 70, in 1456.
St. Anthony Mary Claret: born in 1807, he was ordained and preached throughout Spain. He founded the Claretians, before being made Archbishop of Santiago, Cuba, where he overcame great trials (such as 15 assassination attempts) in his ministry. He returned to Spain, but fled in 1868 after the revolution. He died in France in 1870.
Saints Chad and Cedd: Chad, who died in 672, and Cedd, who died at Lastingham (Yorkshire), in 664, were brothers who were educated at Lindisfarne under Aidan. Cedd founded many monasteries and was sent as a bishop to evangelise the East Saxons and established his See in Essex but died of the plague. Chad was abbot of Lastingham when chosen as Bishop of Northumbria and later Bishop of Mercia where he founded the See of Lichfield. Despite the shortness of his ministry, he was immediately revered as a saint because of his holiness and preaching of the Gospel.

“SMILE – A – WHILE”
What's black and white, black and white, black and white?
A nun rolling down a hill.

  • What do you get when you cross a Jehovah's witness with a business man?  A door to door salesman!
  • Q: What do you call a sleepwalking nun?   
    A: A roamin' Catholic!
  • A Jehovah's Witnesses knocked on my door yesterday, so I answered it and asked if he wanted to come in he said, "Yeah, okay." I said I'm just making a cup of tea do you want one? He said, "Yeah, sure." I said I've just made some toast do you want a slice? He said, "Yeah, why not." I then he sat down and I asked him, "So what now?" He said, "I don't know I've never got this far before!"
  • Jill: Have you read the Bible?
    Jack: No, I'm waiting for the film to come round.
