One Minute Reflection – 27 December – the Feast of St John the Apostle and Evangelist “The Disciple whom Jesus Loved”  and the 3rd Octave Day

Beloved:  What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we looked upon and touched with our hands concerns the Word of life (for the life was made visible;  we have seen it and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life that was with the Father and was made visible to us.…1 John 1:1-21 john 1 - 1 to 2

REFLECTION – “Life itself was therefore revealed in the flesh. In this way what was visible to the heart alone could become visible also to the eye and so heal men’s hearts. For the Word is visible to the heart alone, while flesh is visible to bodily eyes as well.   We already possessed the means to see the flesh but we had no means of seeing the Word. The Word was made flesh so that we could see it, to heal the part of us, by which we could see the Word…”…St Augustine (354-430) – Father & Doctor of the Churchlife itself was therefore revealed - st augustine - 27 dec 2017

PRAYER – Almighty God, who through Your Apostle John, unlocked for us the hidden treasures of Your Word, grant that we may grasp with fuller understanding, the message he so admirably proclaimed. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, in union with the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever, amen.st-john-pray-for-us - 2016

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.
