One Minute Reflection – 18 March
You are a gracious and merciful God, slow to anger, rich in clemency and loathe to punish……….Jon 4:2
REFLECTION – “How great is God’s love for men! Some good men have been found pleasing to God because of years of work. What they achieved by working for many hours at a task pleasing to God is freely given to you by Jesus in one short hour. For if you believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved and taken up to paradise by Him, just as He brought the thief there. Do not doubt that this is possible. After all, He saved the thief on the holy hill of Golgotha because of one hour’s faith; will He not save you too since you have believed? “………… St Cyril of Jersualem (315-386) Father and Doctor of the Church
PRAYER – Merciful Lord, come to my aid quickly in time of despair! Let me rely on the infinite merits of Your suffering Son, Who died for me. St Cyril pray for us all that we may always remain true to the Cross of Christ and our Holy Mother Church, amen.
