One Minute Reflection – 10 September
Come by yourselves to an out-of-the-way place and rest a little.….Mark 6:30
REFLECTION – “Whosoever looks into murky and agitated waters cannot see his own countenance.
If you want the face of Christ to appear in your countenance, pause, recollect your thoughts in silence
and shut the door of the soul to the noise of exterior things.”….St Anthony of Padua (1195-1231) Evangelical Doctor
PRAYER – Lord Jesus Christ, teach me to pause often during my active life and recollect myself.
Let me put away the problems of life and commune with You in prayer and meditation.
St Nicholas of Tolentino, amidst his busy life of charity to all, constantly resumed silence in You
and thus, in his mystical union with You, reflected Your Face. St Nicholas, pray for us, amen.
