One Minute Reflection – 10 January – 4th day after Epiphany:  Gospel  Luke 4:14–22 and The Memorial of St Léonie Françoise De Sales Aviat (1844-1914)

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed...” Luke 4:18the spirit of the lord - luke 4 18-10 jan 2019

REFLECTION – “Evangelising the poor – this is Jesus’ mission.   According to what He says, this is also the mission of the Church and of every person baptised in the Church. Being a Christian is the same thing as being a missionary.   Proclaiming the Gospel with one’s word and even before, with one’s life, is the primary aim of the Christian community and of each of its members.  It is noted here that Jesus addresses the Good News to all, excluding no one, indeed favouring those who are distant, suffering sick, cast out by society.”...Pope Francis – Angelus, 24 January 2016being a christian is the same thing - pope francis - 10 jan 2019

PRAYER – Through Your Son, Lord God, You shed Your eternal light on all mankind.   You gave us our mission, You taught us our way.   Grant us the grace to acknowledge the full splendour of our Redeemer, so that, in His steps, we may grow from strength to strength in evangelising all.   Fill us with Your Spirit to enlighten and guide us.   May the intercession of St Léonie Françoise De Sales Aviat, who followed our Saviour and imitated Him, help us in our mission.   Through our Lord Jesus Christ, in union with the Holy Spirit, God forever, amen.st leonie aviat pray for us 10 jan 2019

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman 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 but rejects the Second Vatican Council as heretical and, therefore, all that followed it.
