Beata Vergine Maria della Vita / Our Lady of Life (1289) and Memorials of the Saints – 10 September

Beata Vergine Maria della Vita / Our Lady of Life (1289) 10 September:
Patronage – hospitals in the Diocese of Bologna, Italy.

The cult of the Madonna della Vita is connected with the hospital of the same name founded in 1289 by the Compagnia dei Battuti, present in Bologna since 1261. In the Sanctuary dedicated to her, between 1370 and 1380, Simone dei Crocefissi frescoed the image of the Blessed Virgin, which remained covered during the renovations in the years 1454-1502 and accidentally found among the exultation of the Bolognese people on 10 September 1614. It depicts Mary Mother and Queen as she rests her face to the cheek of Jesus, according to the iconography of the Mother of Tenderness.
The close link between the original hospital activity and the devotion of the brothers, was also expressed by the motto inscribed under the double Cross: “Vitam dat nobis crux tua, Christe Jesu” “Your Cross gives us life, Christ Jesus.”

Thought for the Day – 10 September – The Memorial of St Nicholas of Tolentino

Thought for the Day – 10 September – The Memorial of St Nicholas of Tolentino

Those hardened in their crimes, made fun of him but Nicholas would not be intimidated, even though soldiers would unsheath their swords and fence whilst he was speaking.
He was kindness itself, going into the slums of Tolentino, visiting the sick and bed-ridden, settling feuds, caring for children, chatting with criminals and begging them not to be cruel to others.
Gradually, this kindness achieved results and even hardened criminals were converted by St Nicholas’ gentleness.
His remarkable powers of persuasion and his charismatic personality, achieved amazing results in those who had been written off.
Gentleness and kindness accomplishes conversion!
St Nicholas pray that we too may be granted the grace of gentle and kindly hearts.st nicholas of tolentino pray for us.2

One Minute Reflection – 10 September

One Minute Reflection – 10 September

Come by yourselves to an out-of-the-way place and rest a little.….Mark 6:30mark 6 30

REFLECTION – “Whosoever looks into murky and agitated waters cannot see his own countenance.
If you want the face of Christ to appear in your countenance, pause, recollect your thoughts in silence
and shut the door of the soul to the noise of exterior things.”….St Anthony of Padua (1195-1231) Evangelical Doctorwhosoever looks into murky water - st anthony of padua

PRAYER – Lord Jesus Christ, teach me to pause often during my active life and recollect myself.
Let me put away the problems of life and commune with You in prayer and meditation.
St Nicholas of Tolentino, amidst his busy life of charity to all, constantly resumed silence in You
and thus, in his mystical union with You, reflected Your Face. St Nicholas, pray for us, amen.st nicholas of tolentino pray for us
