One Minute Reflection – 24 December

One Minute Reflection – 24 December

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us……..John 1:14john 1 - 14

REFLECTION: Indeed, let us rejoice that we are unequal to the task
of giving due praise to so great a sacrament of mercy
(that is, the Nativity);
and if we are unable to express the sublimity
of the manner of our redemption,
let us know that it is good for us to be so helpless.
For none approaches more closely
to the knowledge of the truth than he who realises
that in matters divine there ever remains,
far more to attain,
no matter how far he progresses…St Pope Saint Leo the Great (400-461) Father & Doctor of the Churchindeed let us rejoice - st pope leo the great - 24 dec 2017

PRAYER – Come Lord Jesus, come soon.   In this time of Your coming, support and console us who trust in Your love.   We welcome Him with joy as our Redeemer; year by year renew our joy as we await the fulfilment of our redemption.   The time is now at hand for the Virgin Mary to give birth to her firstborn Son!   Through Jesus Christ our Lord, in union with the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever, amen.the time is now at hand - 24 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.
