One Minute Reflection – 8 January – 2nd Day after Epiphany – Gospel: Mark 6:34-44

And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up twelve baskets full of broken pieces and of the fish. And those who ate the loaves were five thousand men.…Mark 6:42-44

REFLECTION – “The narrative of the multiplication of the loaves and fish, ends with the verification, that everyone is satisfied and with the collection of the leftover pieces.  When Jesus, with His compassion and His love, gives us a grace, forgives us our sins, embraces us, loves us – He does nothing halfway but completely.   As it happens here, all are satisfied.   Jesus fills our heart and our life with His love, with His forgiveness, with His compassion.”…Pope Francis – General Audience, 17 August 2016mark 6 42 and they all ate and were satisfied - pope francis - the narrative of the loaves 8 jan 2019.jpg

PRAYER – God our father, when Your only-begotten Son, revealed Himself in flesh and blood, we came to know Him as our fellow-man.   As He transformed 5 loaves and 2 fish, may He transform us inwardly, until we bear His likeness.   Blessed Eurosia, you were filled with the love of God and your neighbour and by His grace, transformed all those who came within your care, please intercede on our behalf.   We ask this through Christ, our Lord, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever, amen.bl eurosia fabris pray for us 8 jan 2019

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.
