One Minute Reflection – 17 January – The Memorial of St Anthony Abbot (251-356)
What can a man offer in exchange for his very life?……..Matthew 16:26
REFLECTION – “Everything of this world is sold at its price or exchanged for another equivalently priced. But the promise of life eternal is purchased at a bargain price!”……St Anthony Abbot
PRAYER – Lord of all, help me to be willing to pay the price of receiving eternal life. Let me offer myself to You in all that I do and say each day. Lord, grant that through the intercession of St Anthony Abbot, we may deny ourselves, abandon ourselves to Your divine will and love You above all things. Through our Lord, Jesus Christ, in union with the Holy Spirit, one God with You forever amen.
