One Minute Reflection – 4 April – Easter Wednesday and the Memorial of St Isidore of Seville (560-636) Father & Doctor of the Church

I know how to live modestly and I know how to live luxuriously too:  in every way now I have mastered the secret of all conditions:  full stomach and empty stomach, plenty and poverty.   There is nothing I cannot do in the One who strengthens me…Philippians 4:12-13

REFLECTION – “The suffering of adversity does not degrade you but exalts you.   Human tribulation teaches you, it does not destroy you.   The more we are afflicted in this world, the greater is our assurance for the next.   The more we sorrow in the present, ..the greater will be our joy in the future.”…St Isidore of Seville (560-636) Father & Doctor of the Churchthe suffering of adversity - st isidore - 4 april 2018the more we are afflicted in this world - st isidore - 2017

PRAYER – Graciously hear the prayers, O Lord, which we make in commemoration of Saint Isidore, that we and Your Church may be aided by his intercession, just as she has been instructed by his heavenly teaching. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.st isidore - pray for us - 4 april 2018

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman 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 is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
