One Minute Reflection – 4 January – The Memorial of St Elizabeth Ann Seton (1774-1821)
When the Shepherd appears
you will win for yourselves
the unfading crown of glory………1 Peter 5:4
REFLECTION – “You are children of eternity. Your immortal crown awaits you and the best of Fathers waits there to reward your duty and love. You may indeed sow here in tears but you may be sure there to reap in joy.”…St Elizabeth Ann Seton (1774-1821)
PRAYER – Heavenly Father, thank You for making me a child of eternity. Help me to live each day in such a way that I may deserve to be a child of Yours forever. Grant that by the prayers of St Elizabeth Ann Seton, we may strive always to keep our eyes fixed on our eternal home and never waiver from Your commandments. Amen.
