"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them."
Excerpt from Laurence Binyon's "For the Fallen".
'Just as salt gives flavour to food and light illumines the darkness,
so too holiness gives full meaning to life and makes it reflect God’s glory.
How many saints, especially young saints, can we count in the Church’s history!
In their love for God their heroic virtues shone before the world,
and so they became models of life which the Church has held up for imitation by all...
Through the intercession of this great host of witnesses, may God make you too,
dear young people, the saints of the third millennium!'
One thing I asked of the Lord,
that will I seek after:
to live in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to behold the beauty of the Lord,
and to inquire in his temple.
For he will hide me in his shelter
in the day of trouble;
he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;
he will set me high on a rock.
Paul's Prayer for the Ephesians.
"For this reason I bow my knees before the
Father, from whom every family in heaven and
on earth is named, that according to the
riches of his glory he may grant you to be
strengthened with might through his Spirit
in the inner man, and that Christ may
dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the
fullness of God.
Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen."
A thought for the week.
Each week we will post a picture, prayer or short reading for your reflection.
