One Minute Reflection – 6 December – The Memorial of St Nicholas (270-343)

Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them….Isaiah 58:7isaiah 58 7

REFLECTION – You will find out that Charity is a heavy burden to carry, heavier than the kettle of soup and the full basket.   But you will keep your gentleness and your smile.   It is not enough to give soup and bread.   This the rich can do.   You are the servant of the poor, always smiling and good-humoured.   They are your masters, terribly sensitive and exacting master you will see.   And the uglier and the dirtier they will be, the more unjust and insulting, the more love you must give them.   It is only for your love alone that the poor will forgive you the bread you give to them….St Vincent de Paul (1581-1660)it is only for your love - st vincent de paul - 5 dec 2017

PRAYER – Heavenly Father, help me to give some part of whatever I possess to those who have less.   Let me strive to give help in any way I can to those who are less fortunate than I am.   Dearest St Nicholas, you were an icon of charity, Pray for us! Amenst nicholas - pray for us - 5 dec 2017

Passionate Catholic. Being 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 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. "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.
