One Minute Reflection – 7 November – The Memorial of Bl Anthony Baldinucci SJ (1665-1717)
After this I had a vision of a great multitude,
which no one could count,
from every nation, race, people and tongue….Revelations 7:9
REFLECTION – “All Saints is “our” feast, not because we are good but because God’s holiness has touched our life. The Saints aren’t perfect models but persons run through by God. We can compare them to the windows of churches, which let the light enter in different shades of colours. The Saints are our brothers and sisters who received the light of God in their heart and transmitted it to the world, each one according to his own “shade.” However, they were all transparent; they too struggled to remove the stains and the darkness of sin, so as to have God’s kindly light pass through. This is the purpose of life: to have the light of God pass through and also the purpose of our life…..Pope Francis – 1 November 2017
PRAYER – Heavenly Father, may I love and respect Your Saints and by their lives, gain inspiration and assistance. Grant me to obtain an example from their way of life, fellowship in their communion and aid through their prayers. Bl Anthony Baldinucci, displayed a great zeal for teaching and converting sinful souls by his love for the Passion of Your Son and great love for the Holy Eucharist, help me Father to imitate his passionate love. Bl Anthony Baldinucci, pray for us all, amen.
