It is time to say au revoir “Noble Company”
Dear fellow “ardent travellers and noble company,” as we were so beautifully described by St Theodore the Studite in this morning’s One Minute Reflection, I have to leave you for a while to prepare for my frightening move in 2 weeks time.
Please remember me in your prayers – we all know the huge stresses of moving. I definitely need assistance from on high! I could probably take a lesson from our Blessed Mother when the Holy Family fled. I am sure they packed a little lighter than what I am trying to do. Between our Blessed Mother Mary and St Joseph, all will be well. And perhaps, St Jude, as the Patron of hopeless causes, will add his prayer to theirs!
I will, as always, be keeping you all, in mine.
May our good Lord bless us all
and our beloved Mother Mary and St Joseph,
constantly intercede for us.
Be our Shelter, Lord, when we are home,
our Companion when we are away
and our welcome Guest when we return.
And at last, receive us into the dwelling place
You have prepared for us
in Your Father’s house,
where You live forever and ever.
