One Minute Reflection – 13 August – The Memorial fo Sts Pontian and Hippolytus
“Ask and it will be given to you; search and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
Everyone who asks receives; everyone who searches finds; everyone who knocks will have the door opened.”…Matthew 7:7-8
REFLECTION – “Christ, like a skillful physician, understands the weakness of men. He loves to teach the ignorant and the erring He turns again, to His own true way. He is easily found by those who live by faith and to those of pure eye and holy heart, who desire to knock at the door, He opens immediately.”….St Hippolytus
PRAYER – Lord God, Your Son has told us, ‘to knock and the door shall be opened’ – help us to be ever strong in faith that we may remember and trust that You will always open the door if we turn to You, at all times and in all circumstances, in true faith, hope, trust and love. St Hippolytus, pray for us, amen.
