Mary, Mother of God

January 1

Mary Mother of GodThe Mother of God, Blessed Virgin Mary,  starts off with her blessing the new year for we, her children. Heavenly Father, You blessed the Virgin Mary, Mother of God,  with the fullness of grace. She is my model of faith, hope, and love.  I give this new year to her intercession and ask for her holy prayers.  Place my needs into the protection of her motherly love. With her help, I want my faith to grow.  Give me an increase in the virtue of hope when troubles tempt me to despair.  Guide me in understanding Your infinite love.  And join my heart, dear Lord, to the Holy Mother’s Immaculate Heart, so that I may improve in loving everyone unconditionally, in imitation of my Savior Jesus.  Amen.

Saint Sylvester I

December 31

Saint Sylvester IDear God, Saint Sylvester lived through many good and bad events during his long years of service as Pope, from horrendous persecutions to the downfall of the persecutors.  As I think of all that I’ve experienced this past year, I ask him to pray for any loose ends to be resolved during the new year.  Oh Holy Spirit, come upon me and make me holy.  Send in angels to help me resist temptation.  Cover me, Lord Jesus, with your grace and precious Blood.  Protect me from the fiery arrows that demons throw at me.  Thank You for Your love so wonderful, which I long to feel more fully and to experience more readily.  Help me to die into Your love so that I may spend eternity with You, in the heavenly home that You are preparing for me.  Saint Sylvester, pray for me.  All you saints in heaven, rejoice with me.  O Lord, we give You all the praise, all the honor, and all the glory. Amen!

Saint Anysius

December 30

Saint AnysiusHoly Spirit, when John Chrysostom was being persecuted, Saint Anysius ran to his defense.  He begged the Pope to return him to his office of Bishop.  As a bishop himself, he convinced fifteen others to stop worrying about possible repercussions and join the cause.  However they could not overcome the emperor’s will before Saint John died from physical abuses.  I ask Saint Anysius to pray for me to have the courage to defend those who are being oppressed, even if the cause seems hopeless.  O Lord, work through me to bring aid, comfort, hope, and freedom to the downtrodden.  Saint Anysius, pray for us.  Amen.

Saint Thomas Becket

December 29

Saint Thomas BecketGracious Father, Saint Thomas was famed for his opulence and his status as the most powerful man in England second only to the king.  Everything changed when he became a priest to be consecrated archbishop.  He completely turned his life around and began to live piously.  He was soon opposing the king to defend the Church’s rights.  I ask him to pray for the conversion of our politicians today.  O Lord, give them motivation to turn away from the love of money, power and prestige and to begin serving Your kingdom much more than their earthly domains.  Forgive them their sins and lead them to heaven.  Saint Thomas Becket, pray for us.  Amen.


QUOTES by Saint Thomas Becket

Many are needed to plant and water what has been planted now that the faith has spread so far and there are so many people… No matter who plants or waters, God gives no harvest unless what is planted is the faith of Peter and unless he agrees to his teachings. >>

The Holy Innocents

December 28

The Holy InnocentsBlessed Savior, when King Herod tried to kill You by slaughtering the innocent children who were two years old or younger, they became martyrs for the Faith.  Dying before they could experience temptation and sin, they received the glory of triumphing over the world for Your sake.  The Holy Innocents are the patron saints of choir boys and girls and other little children who serve the Church.  I ask them to intercede for the young ones of my parish, especially those who are not being raised by faith-filled parents.  Protect their souls, dear Lord, from becoming corrupted by the world.  Help us all to give them Your love.  Holy Innocents, pray for us.  Amen.
