One Minute Reflection – 9 June – The Memorial of St Ephrem (306-373) Father & Doctor of the Church
…Show(ing) yourself as a model of good deeds in every respect, with integrity in your teaching, dignity and sound speech that cannot be criticised, so that the opponent will be put to shame, without anything bad to say about us…Titus 2:7-8
REFLECTION – “Anyone who wants to be an example to others, must first examine himself.”…St Ephrem
PRAYER – O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, meddling, lust of power and idle talk. But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love to Thy servant. Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own sins and not to judge my brother; for Thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen….Prayer of St Ephrem of whom we ask, please pray for us!
