The Host Apostolate


These reflections and prayers were given as locutions during Lent 2004 between Ash Wednesday and Palm Sunday.


Whilst writing in my diary, Jesus corrects me for not responding instantly and says: -


"I wanted you to write these things that We have inspired you with and this you must do. But I also wish to impart and implant in you some thought for each day of this Season of purification and preparation".


Jesus then asked me to spend some time in silence listening to Him. He then said: -


"Now I will give you reflections that you have missed (delayed in writing). These 'Little Anchors of Hope' will keep you, and those who follow, moving through Lent and times of hardship with a full hope and love".


Since these were given I have discovered that an Anchor is a symbol of hope from earliest Christian times:......


"We who have found safety with Him are greatly encouraged to hold firmly to the hope placed before us. We have this hope as an anchor for our lives. It is safe and sure, and goes through the curtain of the heavenly temple into the inner sanctuary....."




"An anchor was frequently used in the Catacombs and sometimes associated with another common symbol, the Fish. Although the cross was not used in early Christian art, the cross piece and shaft of the anchor were sometimes drawn in such a way as to suggest a cross".
