One Minute Reflection – 9 January – 3rd Day after Epiphany – Gospel: Mark 6:45-52

But immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take heart, it is I;  have no fear.”  And he got into the boat with them and the wind ceased. ...Mark 6:50-51

REFLECTION – “This is an effective image of the Church – a boat which must brave the storms and sometimes seems on the point of capsizing.   What saves her is not the skill and courage of her crew members but faith which allows her to walk, even in the dark, amid hardships.   Faith gives us the certainty of Jesus’ presence always beside us, of His hand which grasps us to pull us back from danger.   We are all on this boat and we feel secure here despite our limitations and our weaknesses.   We are safe especially when we are ready to kneel and worship Jesus, the only Lord of our life.”...Pope Francis – Angelus, 10 August 2014mark 6 50-51 - take heart it is I - faith gives us the certainty - pope francis 9 jan 2019.jpg

PRAYER – O Lord, You who came to save us, teach us all to live and breathe our love for You and Your teachings.   Help us all to realise and give thanks for Your love for us and always to feel and grasp Your presence.   Your life of pain and sorrow, lived to save us, is our only guide.   Through Mary, Your holy and loving Mother and our Mother, grant us courage and gratitude, amen.holy-mary-mother-of-god-pray-for-us-9-jan-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. "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 bless you 🙏
