One Minute Reflection – 28 November – Today’s Gospel:  Luke 21:12–19, Wednesday of the Thirty Fourth week in Ordinary Time, Year B and the Memorial of St Catherine Labouré DC (1806-1876)

“But not a hair of your head will perish.”...Luke 21:18

REFLECTION – ” In difficult times, one must believe that Jesus is before us and does not cease to accompany His disciples.   Persecution is not in contradiction to the Gospel but rather is part of it.   As if to say that none of man’s suffering, not even that which is most minute and hidden, is invisible to the eyes of God.   God sees and certainly protects and He will give His redemption.   There is in fact in our midst, Someone who is stronger than evil.   Christians therefore, must always be found, on the “opposite side” of the world, that chosen by God – not persecutors but persecuted, not arrogant but meek, not charlatans but submissive to the truth, not imposters but honest men and women.”…Pope Francis General Audience, 28 June 2017but not a hair of your head - luke 21 18-in difficult times - pope fancis 28 nov 2018

PRAYER – Shed Your clear light on our hearts O Lord, so that walking continually in the way of Your commandments, we may never be afraid, never be deceived or misled but by Your strength, stand firm in our faith.   For Your Son, walks before us, beside us and behind us.   The Holy Spirit of Your love fills us.   Let nothing put us to shame  . Grant that by the prayers of St Catherine Labouré and all Your saints, we may be strengthened for the journey.   Through our Lord Jesus, in the Holy Spirit, God eternally and forever, amen.st catherine laboure pray for us - 3 - 28nov2018
