One Minute Reflection – 24 July

Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice; let them say among the nations: The LORD is king……1 Chronicles 16:31

REFLECTION – “Great is the gladness in heaven and earth today for the beatification of Charbel Makhluf, monk and hermit of the Lebanese Maronite Order. Great is the joy of the East and West for this son of Lebanon, admirable flower of sanctity blooming on the stem of the ancient monastic traditions of the East and venerated today by the Church of Rome.”……Bl Pope Paul VI at the Beatification ceremny at the closing of the Second Vatican Council, in 1965.

great is the joy of the East and West - bl pope paul VI

PRAYER – Lord, infinitely Holy and Glorified in Your Saints, You have inspired Charbel, the saint monk, to lead the perfect life of a hermit. We thank You for granting him the blessing and the strength to detach himself from the world so that the heroism of the monastic virtues of poverty,obedience, and chastity, could triumph in his hermitage. We beseech You to grant us the grace of loving and serving You, following his example. Almighty God, Who has manifested the power of St Charbel’s intercession
through his countless miracles and favours, grant us our intentions through his intercession. Amen
