Feast of St Cyril of Jerusalem

Monday of the  5th week of Lent. The writings of St Cyril of Jerusalem on the healing power of forgiveness and the Holy Spirit:

“The Spirit comes gently and makes himself known by his fragrance. He is not felt as a burden for God is light, very light. Rays of light and knowledge stream before him as the Spirit approaches. The Spirit comes with the tenderness of a true friend to save, to heal, to teach, to counsel, to strengthen and to console.”

If you happen to come by this  blog would you mind pausing to say a prayer or two? Prayers offered up:

For my friend N in Quebec whose father is  so ill with liver cancer

For the repose of the soul of R who died in September last year — may her family find  comfort in You

For a special intention

For the Inaugural Mass of Pope Francis tomorrow

For the homeless here in South Africa and elsewhere

Cyril of Jerrusalem
