One Minute Reflection – 7 December

One Minute Reflection – 7 December

You …..are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation …..1 Ps 2:9

REFLECTION – All the children of the Church are priests. AT Baptism, they received the anointing that gives them a share in the priesthood.
The sacrifice that they must offer to God is completely spiritual – it is themselves……………..St Ambrose

PRAYER – Holy Father, teach me to offer myself to You with all my thoughts, words and actions. Let me also exercise my “common priesthood” by faithful participation at Holy Mass and in all my encounters with my neighbour. St Ambrose Pray for us! Amen

Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and bless you 🙏

  1. This made me recall something in Jesus’ farewell discourse. He said to his dsciples (us) were given to him by the Father and that he will not lose any of them and will raise them on the last day. He ended up giving himself to the Father – and when we offer ourselves along with him, we let him offer us as gifts back to the Father. It is an amazing thought that we are so valued as to be gifts shared within the Trinity.
