One Minute Reflection – 15 December – Friday of the Second Week of Advent

Therefore, stay awake, for you know neither the day nor the hour...Matthew 25:13matthew 25 13 - 15 dec 2017

REFLECTION – “To prevent His disciples from asking the time of His coming, Christ said: About that hour no one knows, neither the angels nor the Son.   It is not for you to know times or moments.   He has kept those things hidden so that we may keep watch, each of us thinking that He will come in our own day. If He had revealed the time of His coming, His coming would have lost its savour:  it would no longer be an object of yearning for the nations and the age in which it will be revealed.   He promised that He would come but did not say when He would come and so, all generations and ages await Him eagerly.”…St Ephrem (306-373) Father & Doctor of the Churchhe promised that he would come - st ephrem - 15 dec 2017

PRAYER – Holy God, keep us ever alert and watchful, making straight the paths of Your Son, as we await His coming.   It is within our hearts that we need to straighten all things, for if all hearts are ready, our Lord will find His people waiting in hope, peace, joy and love.   Come, Lord Jesus, come. Amencome lord jesus - 15 dec 2017

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 site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings but rejects the Second Vatican Council as heretical and, therefore, all that followed it.
