One Minute Reflection – 19 September – Today’s Gospel: Luke 7:31–35 – Wednesday of the Twenty-fourth week in Ordinary Time and the Memorial of St Alonso de Orozco (1500 – 1591)

“To what then shall I compare the men of this generation and what are they like? “…Luke 7:31

REFLECTION – “It is actually the ruling class that closes the doors to the way that God wants to save us.   In this sense the powerful dialogues between Jesus and the ruling class of His time are understandable:  they argue, they put Him to the test, they lay traps to see if he falls, because they have resistance to being saved.   Jesus says to them: “I don’t understand you!   You are like those children:  we played the flute for you and you didn’t dance;  we sang a sad song for you and you didn’t weep.   What do you want?”.

We want our own way, we want salvation to be done our way.   It comes back to this “closure” to God’s modus operandi.” …Pope Francis – Santa Marta, 3 October 2014luke 7 31 - to what shall I compare - pope francis - we want our way! - 19 sept 2018

PRAYER – Remember Lord, Your solemn covenant, renewed and consecrated by the blood of the Lamb, so that Your people may obtain forgiveness for their sins and a continued growth in grace.   Turn our hearts from stone to flesh, grant that we may want only Your will.   St Alonso de Orozco, You constantly sought the will of God, please pray for us.   We make our prayer through Christ, the Lamb of God, with the Holy Spirit, one God forever, alonso de orozco pray for us - 19 sept 2018


Passionate Catholic. Being 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 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.
