One Minute Reflection – 1 February – Gospel: Mark 4:26–34

One Minute Reflection – 1 February – Friday of the Third week in Ordinary Time, Year Gospel: Mark 4:26–34 and the Memorial of St Brigid of Ireland (c 453-523)

And he said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man
should scatter seed upon the ground and should sleep and rise,
night and day and the seed should sprout and grow, he knows not how.”...Mark 4:26-28

REFLECTION – “We can be confident because the Word of God is a creative word, destined to become the “full grain in the ear” (v. 28).   This Word, if accepted, certainly bears fruit, for God Himself makes it sprout and grow in ways that we cannot always verify or understand. (cf. v. 27).   All this tells us that it is always God, it is always God who makes His Kingdom grow.   That is why we fervently pray “thy Kingdom come”.   It is He who makes it grow.   Man is His humble collaborator, who contemplates and rejoices in divine creative action and waits patiently for its fruits.”…Pope Francis – Angelus, 14 June 2015mark426-28thekingdomofgodisasifamanshouldscatter-itisalwaysgod-popefrancis1feb2019

PRAYER – Almighty Father, we bless You Lord of life, through whom all living things tend.  You are the source of all, our first beginning and our end!   Grant holy Father, that we may allow the Word to enter our hearts and grow by Your grace, so that we may always live for Your glory.   May the intercession of St Brigid of Ireland, who consistently tended Your seed, grant us strength and zeal.   Through Jesus Christ, our Lord with the Holy Spirit, God forever, amen.st brigid of ireland pray for us 1 feb 2019.jpg

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 🙏
