One Minute Reflection – 10 October – Today’s Gospel: Luke 11:1–4

One Minute Reflection – 10 October – Today’s Gospel: Luke 11:1–4

“Father, hallowed be thy name.”...Luke 11:2hallowed be thy name - 10 oct 2018

REFLECTION – “Consideration of your faults is absolutely right.   Faults coming from weakness and that are genuinely rejected do not prevent God from loving us.    They stir up His compassion: “As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him… for he remembers that we are dust” (Ps 102[103]:13, 14b).
It was St Paul’s great devotion to stand before the heavenly Father with all his infirmities and, as he always saw himself to be a member of Jesus Christ, those infirmities were Christ’s:  “I will rather boast most gladly in my weaknesses that the power of Christ may dwell with me” (2Cor 12:9).   Strive to be filled with this spirit of childlike confidence towards God.
It seems to me that the more I am united intimately with our divine Lord, the more he draws me to His Father – and the more, too, He wants me to be filled with His filial spirit. This is the whole spirit of the New Law: “You have not received a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear but you have received a Spirit of adoption through which we cry out:HAbba! Father!” (Rom 8:15).”…Blessed Columba Marmion (1858-1923) Abbot – Union with God in Christ according to the Letters of direction of Dom Marmionconsideration of you faults - bl columba marmion - 10 oct 2018

PRAYER – Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.   Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.   Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.   And grant us Lord, our Father, that the prayers of St Daniel Combon, the Blessed Virgin Mary and all our holy saints, may help us in our needs.   We make our prayer, through Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, one God forever, amen.st-daniel-comboni-pray-for-us-10-oct-2017blessed virgin mary immaculate mother - pray for us - 2 sept 2018

Quote/s of the Day – 9 October –

The Memorial of Blessed John Henry Newman (1801-1890)

“I have a place in God’s counsels,
in God’s world, which no one else has,
whether I be rich or poor,
despised or esteemed by man,
God knows me and calls me by my name.
God has created me to do Him
some definite service.
He has committed some work to me
which He has not committed to another.
I have my mission – I never may know it in this life
but I shall be told it in the next.
Somehow I am necessary for His purposes,
as necessary in my place as an Archangel in his –
if, indeed, I fail, He can raise another,
as He could make the stones children of Abraham.
Yet I have a part in this great work,
I am a link in a chain,
a bond of connection between persons.
He has not created me for naught.
I shall do good, I shall do His work,
I shall be an angel of peace,
a preacher of truth in my own place,
while not intending it,
if I do but keep His commandments
and serve Him in my calling.

Therefore I will trust Him.
Whatever, wherever I am, I can never be thrown away.
If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him,
in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him,
if I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him.
My sickness, or perplexity, or sorrow
may be necessary causes of some great end,
which is quite beyond us.
He does nothing in vain –
He may prolong my life, He may shorten it;
He knows what He is about.
He may take away my friends,
He may throw me among strangers,
He may make me feel desolate,
make my spirits sink, hide the future from me
– still He knows what He is about.”i have a place in god's counsels - bl john henry newman - 9 october 2018

“Who is the flower but our Blessed Lord?
Who is the rod, or beautiful stalk
or stem or plant out of which the flower grows
but Mary, Mother of our Lord, Mary, Mother of God?”who is the flower but our blessed lord - bl john henry newman - 1 may 2018

“Fear not that your life
shall come to an end
but rather fear,
that it shall never
have a beginning.”fear not that your life - bl john henry newman - 9 oct 2018

ten thousand difficulties –
do not make one doubt.”regarding christianity - ten thousand difficulties - 9 oct 2018

and bears me in His arms.

Quote/s of the Day – 21 July – The Memorial of St Lawrence of Brindisi OFM Cap (1559-1619) Doctor of the Church

“God is love and all his operations proceed from love.
Once he wills to manifest that goodness
by sharing His love outside Himself,
then the Incarnation becomes the supreme manifestation
of His goodness and love and glory.
So, Christ was intended before all other creatures
and for His own sake.
For Him all things were created
and to Him all things must be subject
and God loves all creature,
in and because of Christ.
Christ is the first-born of every creature
and the whole of humanity.
as well as the created world,
finds its foundation and meaning in Him.
Moreover, this would have been the case,
even if Adam had not sinned.”
