One Minute Reflection – 11 February

One Minute Reflection – 11 February

The Almighty has done great things for me……………..Lk 1:49

REFLECTION – “Like Saint Bernadette, we stand beneath the watchful gaze of Mary. The humble maiden of Lourdes tells us that the Virgin, whom she called “the Lovely Lady”, looked at her as one person looks at another.   Those simple words describe the fullness of a relationship. Bernadette, poor, illiterate and ill, felt that Mary was looking at her as a person.   The Lovely Lady spoke to her with great respect and without condescension. This reminds us that every person is, and always remains, a human being, and is to be treated as such.   The sick and the those who are disabled, even severely, have their own inalienable dignity and mission in life.   They never become simply objects.   If at times they appear merely passive, in reality that is never the case.”………..Pope Francis from his message for the World Day of the Sick 2017

PRAYER – Holy Mary, Mother of God, stay with me that I might be a light unto those who are sick in body and soul. Teach me that I might reflect your Son. Succour me, that I might not disappoint my Lord God, that I might always be your true child and the sibling of your Son. Pray for us all dear Mother and most especially for the sick, amen!

Passionate Catholic. Being 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 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.
