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 3:15
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 Church
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.
