One Minute Reflection – 13 October – The Memorial of St Gerald of Aurillac

I will rather boast most gladly of my weaknesses, in order that the power of Christ may dwell with me.
Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and difficulties, for the sake of Christ;  for when I am weak, then I am strong….2 Cor 12:9-102 cor 12 - 9,10

REFLECTION – “Trials and tribulations offer us a chance to make reparation for our past faults and sins.
On such occasions the Lord comes to us like a physician to heal the wounds left by our sins.  Tribulation is the divine medicine.”…St Augustine of Hippo (354-430)trials and tribulations-staugustine-13 oct 2017

PRAYER – Almighty Father, let Your light so penetrate our minds, that walking by Your commandments, we may always follow You, our leader and our Guide in the path of Him who suffered and died for our love.   St Gerald of Aurillac, you consecrated yourself and gave up your riches to the poor to follow the way of the Lord, please pray for us.  Through Jesus Christ, our Lord in union with the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amenst gerald of aurillac pray for us - 13 oct 2017



Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, 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. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "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 site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
