One Minute Reflection – 1 June – The Memorial of St Justin Martyr (c 100-165)
The words I spoke to you are spirit and life………John 6:64
REFLECTION – “As by, the Word of God, Jesus our Saviour was made Flesh and had both Flesh and Blood for our salvation, so also the food, which has been blessed by the word of the prayer, instituted by Him, is both the Flesh and Blood of Jesus Incarnate.”…St Justin Martyr (c 100-165)
PRAYER – Lord Jesus, my Saviour, let me daily take to my heart and my soul, Your words. Grant that they may lead me to penance and also provide needed consolation amid the troubles of life. St Justin, when you discovered the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, your life was completely changed and given to Him, so that you could heed His command to go forth and spread the good news to all. Please pray for us, that we may be inspired to imitate your courage and zeal, even as we struggle on our pilgrim path. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, with almighty God, our Father and in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever, amen.
