One Minute Reflection – 18 October – Today’s Gospel:  Luke 10:1–9 – The Feast of St Luke the Evangelist

“Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves.”…Luke 10:3

REFLECTION – “We must abandon ourselves to the power of the Spirit, who is able to infuse light and especially love for Christ;  we must open ourselves to the inner fascination that Jesus works in the hearts of those who aspire to authenticity, while fleeing from half measures.   This is certainly difficult for human beings but it becomes possible with the grace of God (cf. Lk 18: 27).   On the other hand, if following Christ means carrying the Cross each day, the latter in turn is the tree of life leading to the resurrection.   Luke, who emphasises the radical requirements for following Christ, is also the Evangelist who describes the joy of those who become Christ’s disciples.”…St Pope John Paul (1920-2005) 15 October 2000go is end you out as lambs luke 10 3 - luke who emphasises the radical requirements - st john paul 18 oct 2018

PRAYER – Lord God, You chose St Luke to reveal the mystery of Your love in his preaching and his writings.   Grant, we pray, that we may grow in love for the Holy Face of Christ, His words and His directions, revealed to us in the Gospels, in the example of your saints.   Today, on his feast, we especially look to St Luke, to guide, teach and pray for us.   We make our prayer through our Lord Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, one God with You, forever and ever, (1)


Passionate Catholic. Being a 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, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, 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.
