One Minute Reflection – 6 October – Today’s Gospel: Luke 10:17–24 – Saturday of the Twenty-sixth week in Ordinary Time and the Memorial of St Bruno O.Cart. (c 1030-1101)

“Nevertheless, do not rejoice because the spirits are subject to you but rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”
At that very moment he rejoiced in the Holy Spirit and said, “I give you praise, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the babes…” Luke 10:20-21I give you praise Father - luke 10 21 - 6 oct 2018

REFLECTION – “We were chosen out of love and this is our identity.
I have chosen this religion, I have chosen?… NO, you have not chosen.
He is the one who chose you, called you and bound Himself to you.
And this is our faith.   If we do not believe this, we do not understand what the message of Christ is and then we do not understand the Gospel.
He fell in love with our smallness and for this reason He chose us.   And He chooses the little ones – not the great, the little ones.   If you want to understand something of the mystery of Jesus, lower yourself, make yourself small.   Recognise that you are nothing. And not only does He choose and reveal Himself to the little ones but He calls the little ones:  ‘Come to me, all you who are tired and oppressed, I will give you rest’.   But does He not call the gre  at? His heart is open but the great cannot hear His voice because they are full of themselves.   To listen to the voice of the Lord, one must become small.”….Pope Francis – Santa Marta, 23 June 2017we were chosen out of love - pope francis - 6 october 2018

PRAYER – Lord God, You called St Bruno to serve You in a life of solitude. Amidst this world’s changes, help us, by his prayers, to set out hearts always on You.   Heavenly Father, let me realise that You guide our lives through Your Providence, Your Word and Sacraments.   Help me to be obedient to the rules for my state in life and so be obedient to Your will for me.   Grant that the prayers of St Bruno may assist us as we strive to grow in humility.   Through our Lord, Jesus Christ, Your Son in union with the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever, bruno - pray for us - 6 oct 2018


Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman 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 but rejects the Second Vatican Council as heretical and, therefore, all that followed it.
