6th April - Just 15 Minutes

At the beginning of the fourth week of social distancing, let us enter into this holy week in humility. Jesus, Son of the Father, have mercy on us.

      • 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

Revelations 5:8-14 


When he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell before the Lamb, each holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. They sing a new song:

“You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals,

for you were slaughtered and by your blood you ransomed for God saints from every tribe and language and people and nation;

you have made them to be a kingdom and priests serving our God, and they will reign on earth.”


Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels surrounding the throne and the living creatures and the elders; they numbered myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, singing with full voice,

“Worthy is the Lamb that was slaughtered to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!”


Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, singing,

“To the one seated on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might

forever and ever!”


And the four living creatures said, “Amen!” And the elders fell down and worshiped.

            • Some of us may find the book of revelations a bit difficult to understand. Some take it quite literally, others disregard it, but the Church has given us tools to help us navigate this book. The chosen text for today allows us to take a look at Jesus being glorified in Heaven. Jesus, the Lamb who by his blood has bought new life for us. We often think of Jesus as a friend, but it Is good to acknowledge this side of Jesus too.
              • How do I give glory and praise to Jesus in my day to day life? 
              • Do I ever stop and marvel at how much the Father loved us to send his Son to us?
            • 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 know daily that you are God and you are worthy of all glory, honour and praise.  
            • 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.
