One Minute Reflection – 7 June

I call heaven and earth today to witness against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse.   Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live by loving the LORD, your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him…..Deuteronomy 30:19-20

REFLECTION – “The false gods competing for people’s allegiance today, are associated with the worship of material things, possessive and manipulative forms of love and power.   The cult of material possessions, the cult of possessive love and the cult of power often lead people to attempt to ‘play God,’ to try to seize total control with no regard for the wisdom of the commandments that God has made known to us. This is the path that leads toward death.” …..Pope Benedict XVI whilst visiting a Rehabilitation Centre in 2008

PRAYER – Lord, in Your servant, Venerable Matt Talbot you have given us a wonderful example of triumph over addiction, of devotion to duty and charity and commitment to daily prayer. May his life of prayer and penance give us courage to take up our crosses and follow in the footsteps of Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Venerable Matt Talbot please pray for all those who are slaves to addiction and for the whole world, amen.

Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
