One Minute Reflection – 11 July – The Memorial of St Benedict of Nursia OSB (c 480-547)
Do not grow slack but be fervent in spirit; he whom you serve is the Lord…….Romans 12:11
REFLECTION – “There exists an evil fervour, a bitter spirit, which divides us from God and leads us to hell. Similarly, there is a good fervour, which sets us apart from evil inclinations and leads us toward God and eternal life.”…St Benedict
PRAYER – Loving Father, grant me to have a true fervour in Your service. Let me never tire of following Your Son’s example and avoiding evil. Grant that by the intercession of St Benedict, we may grow in holiness and attain our eternal home with You. We ask this through our Lord, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, God forever, amen.
