One Minute Reflection – 3 June

If you are reviled for the name of Christ,
you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory
and of God rests upon you……1 Peter 4:14

REFLECTION – “The African martyrs add another page to the Church’s roll of honour – an occasion both of mourning and of joy. These African martyrs herald the dawn of a new age. If only the mind of man might be directed not toward persecutions and religious conflicts but toward a rebirth of Christianity and civilization! Africa has been washed by the blood of these latest martyrs and first of this new age (and, God willing, let them be the last, although such a holocaust is precious indeed). Africa is reborn free and independent. – Blessed Pope Paul VI from the homily at the canonisation of Saint Charles Lwanga and companions.

PRAYER – Heavenly Father, give us the strength and the courage and fill us with Your Holy Spirit that we may always be faithful to Your Son and His way of the Cross. Blessed and holy Martyrs of Uganda, you St Charles Lwanga and your young companions, are a light to us all! Please pray for us, 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! 🙏
