One Minute Reflection – 16 April – Monday of the Third Week of Eastertide and the Memorial of St Bernadette Soubirous (1844-1879)
For to you has been granted, for the sake of Christ, not only to believe in him but also to suffer for him...Philippians 1:29
REFLECTION – “The more I am crucified, the more I rejoice.”…St Bernadette Soubirous
PRAYER – Let the crucifix be not only in my eyes and on my breast but in my heart. O Jesus! Release all my affections and draw them upwards. Let my crucified heart sink forever into Thine and bury itself in the mysterious wound made by the entry of the lance…By St Bernadette Soubirous, of whom we request, your prayers!
