One Minute Reflection – 16 December – Saturday of the Second Week of Advent
Near indeed is his salvation to those who fear him,
glory dwelling in our land.…Psalm 85:10
REFLECTION – “The Church asks us to understand that Christ, who came once in the flesh, is prepared to come again. When we remove all obstacles to His presence He will come, at any hour and moment, to dwell spiritually in our hearts, bringing with Him the riches of His grace.”….St Charles Borromeo (1538-1584) (from a Pastoral letter to his Diocese),
PRAYER – Almighty God, let the splendour of Your glory dawn in our hearts. May the coming of Your only Son dispel all darkness and reveal that we are children of light. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, in union with the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever, amen.
