One Minute Reflection – 9 January
“You are my beloved Son”……….Luke 3: 22
REFLECTION – “Jesus entered into contact with the Father, Heaven opened above Him. At this moment we can think that Heaven has also opened here, above these children of ours who, through the Sacrament of Baptism, come into contact with Jesus. Heaven opens above us in the Sacrament. The more we live in contact with Jesus in the reality of our Baptism, the more Heaven will open above us.”.Pope Benedict XVI (Feast of the Baptism of the Lord – 7 January 2007)
PRAYER – Heavenly Father, I pray to live each day in Your shadow, living out my Baptismal Vows and following Your Son on my journey home to You. Mary, Help of Christians, pray for us, that we may faithfully live as true Christians each moment of our lives, amen.
