One Minute Reflection – September 9 – The Memorial of St Peter Claver

Has not God chosen the poor in the world to be rich in faith and to be heirs of the kingdom that he has promised to those who love him………….James 2:5

REFLECTION – “This was how we spoke to them, not with words but with our hands and our actions.   And in fact, convinced as they were that they had been brought here to be eaten, any other language would have proved utterly useless.   Then we sat, or rather knelt, beside them and bathed their faces and bodies.”…St Peter Claver SJ (1581-1654) “Slave of the Slaves”this was how we spoke to them - st peter claver

PRAYER – God of mercy and love, You offer all peoples the dignity of sharing in your life. By the example and prayers of St Peter Claver, strengthen us to overcome all racial hatreds and to love each other as brothers and sisters.   We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.   St Peter Claver pray for us, amenst peter claver pray for us

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.
