One Minute Reflection – 24 April

And so I say to you, you are Peter
and upon this rock I will build my church
and the gates of the netherworld
shall not prevail against it……….Matthew 16:18

REFLECTION – “O Catholic faith, how solid, how strong you are!   How deeply rooted, how firmly founded on a solid rock!   Heaven and earth will pass away but you can never pass away.    From the beginning the world opposed you but you mightily triumphed over everything.   This is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith.    It has subjected powerful kings to the rule of Christ;  it has bound nations to His service. What made the holy apostles and martyrs endure fierce agony and bitter torments, except faith and especially faith in the resurrection?   What is it that today makes true followers of Christ cast luxuries aside, leave pleasures behind and endure difficulties and pain?    It is living faith that expresses itself through love.   It is this that makes us put aside the goods of the present in the hope of future goods.   It is because of faith that we exchange the present for the future.”…………………St Fidelis of Sigmaringen

PRAYER – Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we praise You and give You glory:  we bless You for calling us to be Your holy people.    Remain in our hearts and guide us in our love and service.    Help us to let our light shine before others and lead them to the way of faith.
Holy Trinity of love, we praise You now and for ever.   St Fidelis man of courage and true faith, pray for us, amen!

Author:

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman 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 is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
