One Minute Reflection – 12 October – The Memorial of St Edwin of Northumbria
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
And if I have prophetic powers and understand all mysteries and all knowledge and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains
but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have and if I deliver my body to be burned but have not love, I gain nothing.….1 Cor 13:1-3
REFLECTION – ““What does love look like?
It has the hands to help others.
It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy.
It has eyes to see the misery and want.
It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men.
That is what love looks like.”
St Augustine (354-430)
PRAYER – Almighty, ever-living God, as You sent Your only Son to rescue us because Your love has no end, help to follow Your love and live in the way He showed us. St Edwin of Northumbria, once you learnt of the love of God, you brought it to your land and taught your people its true meaning, please pray for us, amen.
