“The road is narrow.
He who wishes to travel it more easily,
must cast off all things
and use the cross as his cane.
In other words,
he must be truly resolved,
to suffer willingly,
for the love of God in all things.”

One Minute Reflection – 20 December

One Minute Reflection – 20 December

You, O God, are my stronghold, my gracious God!………..Ps 59:18

REFLECTION – In tribulations, turn to God with confidence.  You will obtain strength, light and knowledge.

In joys and successes, turn to God with fear and sincerity.  You will escape all snares and be free of everything false…………….St John of the Cross

PRAYER – Heavenly Father, let me turn to You in good times and in bad.  Grant that I may always remain in loving union with You no matter what adversity or goodness should befall me.  As St Dominic de Silos lived his life, when he was exiled, he found another way to give You honour and through this adversity You filled his work with miracles. So too may it be in my life. St Dominic de Silos Pray for us! Amen
