One Minute Reflection – 12 November – ‘To Serve Thee’

One Minute Reflection – 12 November – Tuesday of the Thirty Second week in Ordinary Time, Year C, Gospel: Luke 17:7-10 and the Memorial of St Josaphat (1584-1623) Martyr

“So you also, when you have done all that is commanded you, say, ‘We are unworthy servants, we have only done what was our duty.’ ”… Luke 17:10luke 17 10 - we are unworthy servants - 12 nov 2019.jpg

REFLECTION – “Thou, O my God, have a claim on me and I am wholly Thine!   Thou are the Almighty Creator and I am Thou workmanship.   I am the work of Thou Hands and Thou are my owner.   As well might the axe or the hammer exalt itself against it’s framer, as I against Thee.   Thou owe me nothing, I have no rights in respect to Thee, I have only duties.   I depend on Thee for life and health and every blessing every moment.   If Thou withdraw Thy breath from me for a moment, I die, I am wholly and entirely Thy property and Thy work and my one duty is to serve Thee.   Amen” … St John Henry Newman (1801-1890) Cardinal, Theologian, Poet, Writer, Apologist, Professorluke 17 10 we are unworthy servants - thou o lord have a claim on me - pg 195 heart to heart st john henry newman 12 nov 2019.jpg

PRAYER – O Lord our God, grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love and to be only good influences to our neighbour.   That by our love, our brothers in faith may be one . St Josaphat you fought and struggled to unite the Church and by your efforts achieved the crown of martyrdom, please pray for our world, for a one united faith.   Amenst-jospahat-pray-for-us-ora-pro-nobis-12-nov-2018 and 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 🙏
