One Minute Reflection – 3 September – Today’s First Reading: 1 Corinthians 2:1–5 – Monday of the Twenty-second week in Ordinary Time, Year B & the Memorial of St Pope Gregory the Great (540-604) – Father & Doctor “Father of the Fathers”
…”my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.”…1 Corinthians 2:4-5
REFLECTION – “Holy Scripture presents a kind of mirror to the eyes of the mind, so that our inner face may be seen in it. There we learn our own ugliness, there our own beauty. And there too we discover the progress we are making and how far we are from perfection.”….St Pope Gregory the Great (540-604)
PRAYER – God our Father, Your rule is a rule of love, Your providence is full of mercy for Your people. Through the intercession of St Gregory, grant the spirit of wisdom and understanding in Your Word through Your Son Jesus Christ. Grant that by the light of His Resurrection we may know our eternal home and strive to attain eternal joy there with You. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, with the Holy Spirit, one God forever, amen.
