The saints are the best!  Cheesy

Martin, Patricia, how are your computers doing? Do you need any advice?  Grin

Thanks Shin for the offer. It's to do with the USB ports and not able to start some devices. It's about 7 years old this pc of mine and really I think it needs replacing but feel guilty about spending big bucks to do this when other demands keep cropping up like my eldest son who is going to university in London soon and will need some initial financial support ( the list seems endless sometimes) but I'll get someone to look at it and see if it's worth repairing.
Do we have a patron St of computers?  cross prayer

I don't know of one yet!

Perhaps St. Isidore of Seville, hmm I think it's unofficial but.. Smiley He and St. Clare have some technological associations.

'Prayer  purifies us, reading instructs us. Both are good when both are possible. Otherwise, prayer is better than reading. If a man wants to be always in God’s company, he must pray regularly and read regularly. When we pray, we talk to God; when we read, God talks to us. All spiritual growth comes from reading and reflection. By reading we learn what we did not know; by reflection we retain what we have learned. Reading the holy Scriptures confers two benefits. It trains the mind to understand them; it turns man’s attention from the follies of the world and leads him to the love of God. The conscientious reader will be more concerned to carry out what he has read than merely to acquire knowledge of it. In reading we aim at knowing, but we must put into practice what we have learned in our course of study. The more you devote yourself to study of the sacred utterances, the richer will be your understanding of them, just as the more the soil is tilled, the richer the harvest. The man who is slow to grasp things but who really tries hard is rewarded, equally he who does not cultivate his God-given intellectual ability is condemned for despising his gifts and sinning by sloth. Learning unsupported by grace may get into our ears; it never reaches the heart. But when God’s grace touches our innermost minds to bring understanding, his word which has been received by the ear sinks deep into the heart.'

That's a beuatiful quote on prayer and spiritual reading. By reading Holy scripture and the saints we learn so much about what is good and pleasing to God and then we know what is good for us and what we need to pray for.

Shin you must be right about those saints as they've just confirmed your thoughts. I turned on my computer an hr ago and all these install prompts came on the screen so I just kept clicking on them as they appeared and what do ya know? I have my internet back.
St. Isidore of Seville and St. Clare Thank you so much. Another two for my daily invocation. I'm gonna end up having to make a general prayer like "All you holy saints in heaven pray for us." hehehe

PS. Just realized the topic of this thread is St. Alphonsus de Liguori who I've been reading for the past 2 weeks  Smiley

 When he was bishop, one of St. Alphonsus’s priests led a worldly life, and resisted all attempts to change. He was summoned to St. Alphonsus de Liguori, and at the entrance to the bishop‘s study he found a large crucifix laid on the threshold. When the priest hesitated to step in, St. Alphonsus quietly said, “Come along, and be sure to trample it underfoot. It would not be the first time you have placed Our Lord beneath your feet.”
