One Minute Reflection – 25 April
At once the man’s ears were opened; he was freed from the impediment and began to speak plainly……….Mark 7:35
REFLECTION – “The knot in his tongue was untied
and he spoke plainly. You too have the tongue
untied and can use it when you wish.
Why do you use it for evil rather than for good?
You take care to choose among foods,
what you wish to eat.
You should be just as careful to choose
what you want to say!”……….St Augustine
PRAYER – Heavenly Father, help me to realise the wonderful way of communicating with others that You have given to me. Let me always use for good and for Your glory. Almighty Father, You chose St Mark the Evangelist and ennobled him grace to preach the Gospel. May his teaching help us in our lives, that we may walk faithfully in the footsteps of Christ, Your Son. St Mark, pray for us, amen!
