One Minute Reflection – 8 January – Feast of the Baptism of the Lord

You cannot have forgotten that all of us, when we were baptised into Christ Jesus, were baptised into his death.   So by our baptism into his death we were buried with him, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the Father’s glorious power, we too should begin living a new life…Romans 6:3-4romans 6 3 - 8 jan 2018

REFLECTION – “The purpose of Christ’s existence was precisely to give humanity God’s life and His Spirit of love, so that every person might be able to draw from this inexhaustible source of salvation.   This is why St Paul wrote to the Romans that we were baptised into the death of Christ in order to have His same life as the Risen One.” …Pope Benedict XVI Homily on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord 2013the purpose of christs existence was precisely...- pope benedict 2013 - 8 jan 2018

PRAYER – Heavenly Father, I pray to live each day in Your shadow, protected by Your mercy, living out my Baptismal Vows and following Your Son on my journey home to You.

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.
