3rd April - Just 15 Minutes

      • 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

John 19:25-27


Meanwhile, standing near the cross of Jesus were his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing beside her, he said to his mother, “Woman, here is your son.” Then he said to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home.

      • Today we celebrate the feast of our Lady of Sorrows. Jesus in his final hours gave his own mother to be our mother too.
        • What kind of relationship do you have with Mary? Do you ever think of her?
        • The Church teaches us that she is a mother who guides anyone who invokes her towards her son Jesus. She knows Jesus more than any of us does, and therefore she is the best person to accompany us towards him. 
        • Mary knows what suffering means, she saw her own son being crucified and killed on the cross. On this day, let us bring our suffering to Mary, and place it at the foot of the cross. 
        • Let us mourn on this day for the suffering the world is enduring and place our hope and trust in Jesus. 
      • 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.
