One Minute Reflection – 25 June – Monday of the Twelfth Week of Ordinary Time, Year B

“You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”…Matthew 7:5

REFLECTION – “Let us especially resolve not to judge others, not to doubt their good will, to drown evil in an abundance of good, sowing loyal friendship, justice and peace all around us.”… St Josemaria Escriva (1902-1975)matthew 7-5 you hyprocrite - let us especially resolve not to judge - st josemaria - 25 june 2018

PRAYER – God of power and mercy, be with us in our endeavours to be true to Your commandments and be light in our world.   Grant that we may always act in true humility towards our neighbour, assisting where we are able without allowing our hearts to pass judgment on things we do not see and understand.   May our Mother Mary be with us and lead us to the truth of Her Son.   We make our prayer through Christ our Lord, in union with the Holy Spirit, one God forever, amen.blessed virgin mother mary - pray for us - 25 june 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. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and bless you 🙏

  1. But here is the key, key point: assisting where we are able without allowing our hearts to pass judgment *** on things we do not see and understand ***. When an individual *understands* … especially when he/she sees it happening before the eyes to the self/other … the individual has *the right* to call another to the mat.  And (lo, and behold), for everyone’s convenience, there is a passage in scripture, Matthew 18:15-20, that details the best way to go about it.  However, if “an other” finds a way to prevent any opportunity for engagement—a way to not have to either hear or act at all, that is not an issue … that is a problem that needs to be solved.

  2. Yes Stacy, definitely, as in 2 Timothy we should “refute falsehood, correct error, give encouragement — but do all with patience….” and else where in Matthew (18 I think) if your brother sins against you…. But I St Josemaria is saying, do it with justice and love in mind. For the core of our faith is just that – love – and even when we see the error and correct it – we still do not truly know what goes on in the heart of the man! For that is what only God knows.
