One Minute Reflection – 5 November
With so many witnesses in a great cloud on every side of us, we too, then, should throw off everything that hinders us, especially the sin that clings so easily, and keep running steadily in the race we have started….Hebrews 12:1
REFLECTION – “In Catholic tradition, devotion to the saints is not merely a mark of respect or a brief prayer on certain occasions….but a deeply felt spiritual communion, an attentive study of the precious examples and lessons, which the saints give us to cheer and encourage us.”…St Pope John XXIII
PRAYER – Oh bless us O Holy Father, in Your saints, in the suffering army in Purgatory and in Your angels! May those who stand in adoration with You in Heaven and those who cry out for mercy, be our intercessors as we struggle to throw off everything that hinders us on our way to You and them! Eternal Father, may we reach our heavenly goal by their constant prayer. As we pray for the Holy Souls and they for us, may the Saints and angels be our champions, amen.
