One Minute Reflection – 3 April – Easter Tuesday and The Memorial of St Richard of Chichester (1197-1253)
Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brethren, what shall we do?” And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptised every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ, for the forgiveness of your sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit...Acts 2:36-38
REFLECTION – “Satisfaction consists in the cutting off of the causes of the sin. Thus, fasting is the proper antidote to lust; prayer to pride, to envy, anger and sloth; alms to covetousness.”…St Richard of Chichester
PRAYER – Grant us O God, our Father, Your grace, that we may constantly work to repair the damage caused by our sin that we may seek forgiveness and then go forth to sin no more, always amending what earthly damage we have caused. St Richard of Chichester, may your prayers, assist us on our journey to our heavenly home. We make our prayer through our Lord Jesus Christ, in unity with the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever, amen.
