One Minute Reflection – – 9 December 2017- Saturday of the First Week of Advent

How I wish you were ….hot or cold!   But because you are lukewarm … I will spew you out of my mouth!….Revelations 3:15revelations 3-15

REFLECTION – The Word of God moves swiftly.   He is not won by the lukewarm nor held fast by the negligent. Be attentive to His message and diligently follow the path God tells you to take.   For He is swift in His passing…..St Ambrose (340-397) Father & Doctor of the Churchthe word of god - st ambrose - 9 dec 2017

PRAYER – Lord Jesus, my Lord and Saviour, help me to avoid this lukewarmness in my spiritual growth.   Allow me, this Advent, to use the time well to prepare for Your swift passing.   Grant me an ardent faith, hope and love so that I may be ready for Your coming, every watchful and zealous in following You.   May the great love and prayers of St Juan Diego, whose feast we celebrate today, be acceptable to You on our behalf, amen.st juan diego pray for us

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman 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 is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
