30th March - Just 15 Minutes

In this second week of social distancing we entrust our lives and the lives of those around us to Jesus. We hope that these 15 minutes together with Christ are helping you grow deeper in intimacy with God, whilst allowing Him to give you the gift of his peace in these difficult situations.

We ask you to pray for all those who are suffering at the moment and those who are on the health workers fighting this pandemic.

        • 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: 


Collosians 3:12-17


As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

        • ‘Do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus.’
          • How can I daily grow in love for God and my neighbours through compassion, kindness, humility, meekness and patience?
          • Who are my neighbours today? In what concrete ways can I give glory to God by serving them?
          • What do I need to thank God for today? How has He been with me in the good and bad situations I am facing today?
        • Ask Jesus for opportunities to love your family members, friends and those you come in contact with.
          •  Jesus, I do not often realise when people are struggling or suffering. I pray, open my eyes that I may seek ways to honour you through loving those  I come in contact with.
            • 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 your courage to love even in the most difficult situations.  
            • 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.
