One Minute Reflection – 31 January -The Memorial of St John Bosco (1815-1888)

Whoever welcomes one such child for my sake welcomes me….Matthew 18:5-6matthew-18-5-6 - 2017

REFLECTION – “Let us regard those boys over whom we have some authority as our own sons.   Let us place ourselves in their service.   Let us be ashamed to assume an attitude of superiority.   Let us not rule over them except for the purpose of serving them better. This was the method that Jesus used with the apostles.   He put up with their ignorance and roughness and even their infidelity.   He treated sinners with a kindness and affection that caused some to be shocked, others to be scandalised and still others to hope for God’s mercy.   And so he bade us to be gentle and humble of heart.” – from a letter by Saint John Boscolet us be ashamed - st don bosco - 31 jan 2018

PRAYER – We praise You, Lord, for calling St John Bosco to be a loving father and prudent guide of the young.   Give us his fervent zeal for souls and the graces You granted him, making him in a servant of all.   Enable us, O Lord, to live for You alone and to see in all Your image.   Through our Lord Jesus Christ, in union with the Holy Spirit, one God with You, forever and ever, john bosco pray for us - 31 jan 2018



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! 🙏
