Daily Reflection with Fr. Tomas Del Valle-Reyes



Dear Friends: Praying is not easy. Our daily routine calls for our full attention. And the world around us puts little value on prayer; our lives are full of material things but at the same time are getting emptier in God’s value.

For this reason, I will post a daily reflection and as you visit this site may the Holy Spirit within you come to your aid and guide you gently to the God who loves you

It Only Takes A Minute

It only takes a minute to make a difference in the world.
It only takes a minute to calm a fear.
It only takes a minute to make a child feel loved.
It only takes minute to hold a hand and make the pain go away.
It only takes a minute to say,
 “I’m sorry” and prevent a lifetime of regret.
It only takes a minute to stoop down to see
the world through the
eyes of a child and in doing so
change how they see you.
It only takes a minute to dial the phone and say,
 “I just called to say “I love you!”
It only takes a minute to stop what you are doing
and really listen to what someone is saying.
It only takes a minute to smile and get one in return.
It only takes a minute to forgive.
It only takes a minute to ask to be forgiven.
It only takes a minute to send an email to all the people in
your address book and say,
"I just wanted to take a minute 
to tell you how incredible you are. 
I am blessed to have you in my life."
It only takes a minute to say a prayer.
It only takes a minute to say,
“Thank you, God” but a lifetime
to list all the reasons.
