One Minute Reflection – 1 February – The Memorial of Bl Benedict Daswa (1946-1990) Martyr

Be on guard and pray, that you may not undergo the test………Matthew 26:41matthew 26-41

REFLECTION – “Your first task, is, to be dissatisfied with yourself, fight sin and transform yourself into something better.   Your second task, is, to put up with the trials and temptations of this world, that will be brought on by the change in your life and to persevere to the very end, in the midst of these things…St Augustineyour first task - st augustine - 1 feb 2018

PRAYER – Heavenly Father, help me to work out my salvation in fear and trembling. Let me pray daily that I may withstand temptation and carry out Your will in all things.  Blessed Benedict Daswa you who withstood all attempts to sway you into evil ways for the love of God, please intercede for us that we may too be freed when the test comes.   Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, in unity with the Holy Spirit, one God forever, benedict pray for us! - 1 feb 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! 🙏
