One Minute Reflection – 12 March – Tuesday of the First Week of Lent, C – Gospel Matthew 6:7–15

“Pray then like this:
Our Father who art in heaven…”…Matthew 6:9

REFLECTION – “It’s good for us to sometimes examine our own consciences on this point. For me, is God my Father?   Do I feel that He is my Father?   And if I don’t feel that, let me ask the Holy Spirit to teach me to feel that way.   And am I able to forget offences, to forgive, to let go of it and if not, let us ask the Father:  ‘these people too are your children, they did something horrible to me … can you help me to forgive them’?   Let us carry out this examination of our consciences and it will do us a lot of good, good, good.   ‘Father’ and ‘our’: give us our identity as His children and give us a family to journey with during our lives.”…Pope Francis – Santa Marta, 16 June 2016.matthew 6 9 - pray then like this - the father and our give us our identity pope francis - 12 march 2019.jpg

PRAYER – Heavenly Father, we are Your children and we beg You, make us know this with all our being.   May we be as little children in total trust and dependence on You. May we glory in resembling You, as children resemble their fathers on earth.  For You are all goodness, love and truth – may we become all of these things as perfect copies of You. May the prayers of St Luigi Orione, who lived his life as a true copy of Your Son, bring us strength and commitment especially on our Lenten journey to the Resurrection of Your Son.   Through Jesus our Lord and Saviour, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever, luigi orione 12 march 2019 pray for us


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.
