One Minute Reflection – 13 April – Friday of the Second Week of Eastertide

…”for if this plan or this undertaking is of men, it will fail; but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them.   You might even be found opposing God!”… Then they left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer dishonour for the name.   And every day in the temple and at home they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ…Acts 5:38,40-42then they left the presence - acts 5 40-42

REFLECTION – “We cannot keep ourselves shut up in parishes, in our communities, when so many people are waiting for the Gospel!   We cannot be Christians part-time.   If Christ is at the centre of our lives, He is present in all that we do.”…Pope Franciswe cannot keep ourselves - POPE FRANCIS - 13 APRIL 2018

PRAYER – Almighty, ever-living God, grant us the grace to bear the hardships of this life with a steadfast mind, even as You strengthened the Apostles and all the Saints after them, whom no threats could daunt, no pains or penalties break.   Dear sweet St Margaret of Castello, you who disregarded your own sufferings to help those who suffer more, pray for us!   Through Jesus our Lord, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever, amen.bl margaret of castello - pray for us 13 april 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. "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.
