One Minute Reflection – 30 January – Gospel of the Day Mark 5:21-43 Year B

She had heard about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak. She said, “If I but touch his clothes, I shall be cured.”…Mark 5:27-28mark 5 27-28 - 30 jan 2018

REFLECTION – “The second episode, that of the woman with the haemorrhage, again manifests how Jesus came to liberate human beings in their totality.   In fact, the miracle takes place in two stages:  first there is the physical healing but this is closely linked to the deeper healing, that which grants God’s grace to those who welcome Him in faith. Jesus says to the woman:  ‘Daughter, your faith has saved you.   Go in peace and be healed of the evil that afflicts you!’ (Mark 5:34).   These two stories of healing are an invitation for us to overcome the purely horizontal and materialistic vision of life.   We rightly ask God for so many healings from our problems, from concrete necessities.   But what we must ask for insistently, is a more solid faith, so that the Lord might renew our life and a firm trust in His love, in His providence that does not abandon us.”…Pope Benedict XVI July 2012we rightly ask God - 30 jan 2018 - pope benedict

PRAYER – Almighty Father, grant that our trust and faith may grow each day.   Help us to be secure in Your unfailing love and help.   Even in our times of fear, pain and distress, give us the trust to know that You are always with us and that Your healing grace does indeed work miracles in our lives.   Grant us strength, O Lord, to overcome all our fears with confidence in Your loving care.   Through Jesus Christ in union with the Holy Spirit, one God forever, amen.



Passionate Catholic. Being a 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, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, 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. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "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. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
