REFLECTION – “For this is why the Word became man and the Son of God became the Son of man – so that man, by entering into communion with the Word and thus receiving divine sonship, might become a son of God.”… St Irenaeus
PRAYER – Grant us Lord, a true knowledge of salvation, so that, freed from fear and from the power of our foes, we may serve You faithfully, according to Your Word, all the days of our life. Grant that by the prayers of St Irenaeus, we may always work for the truth, for unity and for love and peace. We make our prayer through our Lord Jesus Christ, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God with You, forever, amen.
