One Minute Reflection – 2 August – The Memorial of St Peter Faber S.J. (1506-1546)
‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard and your almsgiving remembered before God.’...Acts 10:31
REFLECTION – “I then noted that by seeking God in good works through the spirit, one will more readily find Him afterwards in prayer than if one had sought Him first in prayer so as to find Him subsequently in good works, as is often done. For he who seeks and finds the spirit of Christ in good works makes much more solid progress than the person whose activity is limited to prayer alone.”…St Peter Faber
PRAYER – Lord God, light of the faithful and shepherd of souls, who gave blessed Peter to Your Church, to feed Your flock by his teaching and form them by his example, grant that by his intercession, we may keep the faith which he taught and follow in the way he walked. We make our prayer through Christ our Lord, in union with the Holy Spirit, one God forever, amen.
