One Minute Reflection – 30 May

The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him:
a spirit of wisdom and understanding……..Is 11:2

REFLECTION – “Those who are led by the Holy Spirit have a right concept of everything.
Hence, many unlettered people enjoy such knowledge more than the wise.”…………St John Vianney
“(St Joan of Arc) our saint lived prayer as a form of continuous dialogue with the Lord, who also enlightened her answers to the judges, giving her peace and security. She prayed with faith: “Sweetest God, in honour of your holy Passion, I ask You, if You love me, to reveal to me how I must answer these men of the Church”. Joan saw Jesus as the “King of Heaven and Earth.” Thus, on her standard, Joan had the image painted of “Our Lord who sustains the world”………..Pope Benedict XVI (2010)

PRAYER – Father if every good gift, send forth Your Spirit upon me with His sevenfold gifts. Grant that through my love for Your Son, I too may like St Joan of Arc, achieve the heights of the Christian life, make prayer the guiding thread of my days; fulfilling the will of God, whatever it is; to live in charity without favouritisms, without limits and have, as she had, in the love of Jesus, a profound love for the Church. St Joan of Arc, pray for us all, 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. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "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 I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
