One Minute Reflection – 3 July

One Minute Reflection – 3 July

“My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me?
Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”…John 20:28-29

REFLECTION – “the Apostle Thomas’ case is important to us for at least three reasons: first, because it comforts us in our insecurity; second, because it shows us that every doubt can lead to an outcome brighter than any uncertainty; and, lastly, because the words that Jesus addressed to him remind us of the true meaning of mature faith and encourage us to persevere, despite the difficulty, along our journey of adhesion to him”………….Pope Benedict XVI, 27 September 2006.

PRAYER – Father, let our celebration of the Feast of St Thomas the Apostle, be the source of his unfailing help and protection. Fill us with Your life-giving grace through faith in Your Son, whom St Thomas acknowledged to be his Lord and God. St Thomas continue to intercede for us that we may grow strong in faith and trust. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, in union with the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever 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.
