1st April - Just 15 Minutes

During this third week of social distancing, let us take time to meditate on the word of God. Let us make time to be with Him, that he may transform us as we cooperate and allow His words to change us, and give us new life.

      • Find a suitable place where you can sit and be calm. 
        • Close your eyes for a few moments and listen to the sounds surrounding you, be aware of your posture and make yourself present to enter into a moment of intimacy with Jesus.


      • Make the sign of the cross and remain for a few more moments in silence. TIP: If it helps you to concentrate and to bring yourself before Jesus in prayer, play a song or two of praise. If you do not have any specific song, we suggest this song

Psalm 118:1-9


O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;

    his steadfast love endures forever!


Let Israel say,

    “His steadfast love endures forever.”

Let the house of Aaron say,

    “His steadfast love endures forever.”

Let those who fear the Lord say,

    “His steadfast love endures forever.”


Out of my distress I called on the Lord;

    the Lord answered me and set me in a broad place.

With the Lord on my side I do not fear.

    What can mortals do to me?

The Lord is on my side to help me;

    I shall look in triumph on those who hate me.

It is better to take refuge in the Lord

    than to put confidence in mortals.

It is better to take refuge in the Lord

    than to put confidence in princes.

      • ‘His steadfast love endures forever!’
        • In these difficult moments, I often struggle to accept that God loves me. Yet throughout scripture we continuously find over and over again that God is with us passing through the darkness moments. His Love is constant, and He is the one who delivers us. 
        • Take a moment to thank God for all the good things you can observe around you, shift your vision, and see God’s work in action before you.
        • Take a moment and look back at difficult moments in your life, and thank God that in these moments he stood by your side, and  has delivered you by his grace. 
      • Allow a moment of silence and try to listen to what God wants to tell you today. We suggest using a notebook to write some short points. 
      • Ask Mary to guide you to her son Jesus and intercede for others. Recite a Hail Mary. 
        • What are the requests I wish to bring to God through Mary? For whom will I intercede?
      • Close this moment of prayer by thanking God for this moment of intimacy together. 
        • Grant us Jesus the ability to see you in our darkest moments.  
      • Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.   – Make the sign of the cross. 

The Rosary will be prayed every day at 5:30pm and live-streamed on TVM2, Newsbook & Church.mt, from the Curia’s chapel. We encourage you all to join us in this prayer. If you have any prayer intentions which you’d like us to pray for, you can write them below. These intentions will be kept in confidence.
