One Minute Reflection – 13 February – “Shrove Tuesday”

One Minute Reflection – 13 February – “Shrove Tuesday”

“I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.”…John 17:14-15shrove tuesday 1

REFLECTION – “In this sense, then, the world is everything that is opposed to our Lord Jesus Christ, that refuses to recognise Him and that resists His divine guidance.   Those false maxims which tend to weaken the love of God in our souls;  which recommended the vanities that fasten our hearts to this present life;  which cry down everything that can raise us above our weaknesses or vices;  which decoy and gratify our corrupt nature by dangerous pleasures, which, far from helping us to the attainment of our last end, only mislead us-all these are ‘the world.'”…Abbot Dom Prosper Gueranger (The Liturgical Year)

PRAYER – All-provident Lord, my God, You are my Father and in You is all my hope and trust. Teach me to live according to Your precepts, knowing that through them I will attain virtue and thus be filled with true joy.   Help me to love Your Creation but never to succumb to the enticements of the material world which constantly beckon and attempt to seduce my love.   Grant us all strength during our Lenten journey to minimise the snares of the ‘world’ around us and to open our hearts only to You.   Through our Saviour, who came to teach us and lead us, in unity with the Holy Spirit, one God, amen.the jesus prayer 3 - 13 feb 2018 - shrove tuesday

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.
