One Minute Reflection – 11 September – The Memorial of St John Gabriel Perboyre (1802-1840) Martyr for Christ
Or are you unaware that we who were baptised into Christ Jesus were baptised into his death?…..Romans 6:3
REFLECTION – “I do not know what awaits me in the journey that lies ahead of me,
without a doubt the cross, which is the daily bread of the missionary.
What can we hope for more than this, in going to preach a crucified God?” (Letter No. 70)…St John Gabriel Perboyre
PRAYER – Lord Jesus, let me love You above all things and ever remain united to You and with Your Holy Cross. I pray that I will be given the grace of courage and strength, to carry my cross in imitation of You. St John Gabriel Perboyre, you suffered a passion and death in close imitation of our Lord and Saviour, please pray for us that our timidity might not overpower us, amen.
