One Minute Reflection – 13 November – Today’s Gospel: Luke 17:7–10

One Minute Reflection – 13 November – Today’s Gospel: Luke 17:7–10 – Tuesday of the Thirty Second week in Ordinary Time, Year B and the Memorial of St Stanislaus Kostka SJ (1550-1568) & St Agostina Livia Pietrantoni S.D.C. (1864-1894)

“So you also, when you have done all that is commanded you, say, ‘We are unworthy servants, we have only done what was our duty.’ ”…Luke 17:10

REFLECTION – “You do not say to your servant, “Sit down” but require more service from him and do not thank him.   The Lord also, does not allow only one work or labour for you, because so long as we live, we must always work.   Know that you are a servant overwhelmed by very much obedience.   You must not set yourself first, because you are called a son of God.   Grace must be acknowledged but nature not overlooked.  Do not boast of yourself if you have served well, as you should have done.   The sun obeys, the moon complies and the angels serve.   Let us not require praise for ourselves, nor prevent the judgement of God and anticipate the sentence of the Judge but reserve it, for its own time and Judge. ”…Saint Ambrose (340-397) Father & Doctor of the Church (Exposition of the Gospel of Luke, 8)so you also when you have done - luke 17 10 - do not boast of yourself st ambrose - 13 nov 2018

PRAYER– Holy Father, I beg Your grace to achieve sanctity.   Grant me the wisdom to follow Your Son, the fortitude to persevere in all trails and to be Your servant to all Your children but most of all Holy Father, grant me Your grace to obtain eternal life.   Precious youths, St Stanislaus and St Agostina, please pray for us all , amen.st-stanislaus-pray-for-us-13-nov-2017-no-3st agostini pietrantoni pray for us 13 nov 2018

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. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "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. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! 🙏
