One Minute Reflection – 16 February
(Jesus) said to Peter,
“Put out into deep waters
and lower your nets for a catch.”……………….Luke 5:4
REFLECTION – “The bark of Peter laughs at the winds and the waves.
She has the Saints as her passengers, the Cross as her mast, the Gospel teachings as her sails, the Angels as her rowers and God as her pilot.” ……………..St John Chrysostom
PRAYER – Heavenly Father, teach me to trust Your Church as the Bark of Salvation in this world. Grant that I may work and pry to remain afloat with her amid the storms of Life. St Gilbert, you experienced great storms and upheavals in every facit of your life but your eyes remained fixed on the pilot, you embraced the Cross and persevered with the saints until you too became one. St Gilbert of Sempringham, please pray for us, that will follow our friends in heaven too, amen!
