Thought for the Day #stroseoflima
“If your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter into life maimed or crippled than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into eternal fire. And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into fiery Gehenna” (Matthew 18:8–9).
St Rose of Lima Pray for us!

“Apart from the Cross
there is no other ‘ladder’
by which we might get to heaven.”
~~~~~ St Rose of Lima ~~~~~ (Saint of the Day)
One Minute Reflection #stroseoflima
It is in Christ….that we have been redeemed and our sins forgiven, so immeasurably generous is God’s favour (grace) to us……..Eph 1:7
REFLECTION – If only we would learn how great it is to possess divine grace and how many riches it has within itself, how many joys and delights.
We would devote all our concern to winning for ourselves pains and afflictions in order to attain the unfathomable treasure of grace…..St Rose of Lima (Saint of the Day)
PRAYER – God is all goodness, keep ever in my mind the surpassing riches of Your grace. Grant that I may devote all my efforts to co-operating with that grace and growing in it day by day. St Rose of Lima Pray for us! Amen

MORNING PRAYER OF ST BERNARD
High and Holy God,
give me this day
a word of truth
to silence the lies
that would devour my soul
and kind encourgements
to strengthen me when I fall.
I come quietly to Your door
needing to receive
from Your hands
that gives life.
Amen and Amen
