Saint Melito of Sardis

April 1

Saint-Melito-of-SardisSacred Jesus, as a bishop and an ecclesiastical writer who understood the tremendous value of Your Passion on the Cross, Saint Melito of Sardis wrote: “He suffered for the sake of those who suffer, He was bound for those in bonds.”   Help me to fully grasp the meaning that Your sacrifice has for my life.  When I look upon a crucifix in church or in my home, remind me that by Your stripes I was healed.  Give me a mind that understands why You suffered for me.  Teach me to imitate You in giving passionate love to others, offering up all the pain of difficult relationships for their healing.  Saint Melito, pray for me.  Amen.


QUOTES by Saint Melito of Sardis

Come, then, all you nations of men, receive forgiveness for the sins that defile you. I am your forgiveness. I am the Passover that brings salvation. I am the lamb who was immolated for you. I am your ransom, your life, your resurrection, your light, I am your salvation and your king. I will bring you to the heights of heaven. With my own right hand I will raise you up, and I will show you the eternal Father. >>

When a man turns away ever so little from error, the mention of the truth is acceptable to him. For, just as when the cloud breaks ever so little there comes fair weather, even so, when a man turns toward God, the thick cloud of error which deprived him of true vision is quickly withdrawn from before him. >>

Saint Balbina

March 31

Saint-Balbina.jpgDear God, Saint Balbina was regarded as an example of Your grace manifested here in this world.  In the guidebooks given to pilgrims at the Roman catacombs, his tomb was listed as a place to pray for the gift of grace.  I, too, ask her to intercede for me, that I may grow spiritually and be filled with God’s grace.  Holy Spirit, inspire more prayer time in me, so that I may avail myself of this special help from You.  Overshadow me with Your power, so that I may resist sin, experience Your love, and become a better steward of Your manifold grace for all those around me.  Saint Balbina, pray for me.  Amen.

Saint John Climacus

March 30

Saint-John-Climacus.jpgO Powerful Jesus, at the beginning of Saint John Climacus’ ministry, he was severely tempted by the devil. By placing all of his trust in You and spending much time in prayer, he resisted the sins and grew in holiness.  When people asked for his help in overcoming the difficult traps of sin, they prayed together, and peace replaced the temptations.  I ask Saint John to pray with me against the pull of sinfulness in my life.  Jesus, through the Cross you overcame the devil and freed me from sin.  Help me to live in that freedom today.  Remind me to pray whenever I’m in danger of falling back into the slavery of sin.  Saint John Climacus, pray for me. Amen.


QUOTES by Saint John Climacus

If prayer is your concern, then show yourself to be merciful… >>

Happy the man who strives without end to please the Lord as others try to please men. >>

Faith is the unshaken stance of the soul and is unmoved by any adversity. The believing person is not one who thinks God can do all things, but one who trusts that he will obtain everything. Faith is the agent of things unhoped for. >>

Do not be surprised that you fall every day; do not give up, but stand your ground courageously. And assuredly, the angel who guards you will honor your patience. >>

A servant of the Lord is he who in body stands before men, but in mind knocks at Heaven with prayer. >>

Saint Jeanne Marie de Maille

March 29

Saint-Jeanne-Marie-de-Maille.jpgJesus Lamb of God, Saint Jeanne Marie de Maille is the patron for abuse victims.  I lift up to You all the wounded ones in my family, church, neighborhood and circle of friendships.  I also lift up to You their abusers.  Saint Jeanne Marie, intercede for each one.  Embrace them, Lord.  Give them a healing of memories.  Show them Your holy tears, Your Sacred Heart, and Your deep compassion.  Rescue them from current abuses and past hurts.  Turn every evil into a good far greater than the imagination can dream.  Bring an end to family legacies where abuse has been passed from one generation to the next.  Saint Jeanne Marie de Maille, pray for us.  Amen.

Saint Guntramnus

March 28

Saint-Guntramnus.jpgJesus Lord of Unity, Saint Guntramnus was a peacemaker.  He strictly and justly enforced the law, regardless of a person’s rank or status or situation, but when it came to crimes against himself, he forgave the offenders, even after two attempted assassinations.  I lift up to his intercession the victims of war crimes and the victims of violence in schools, homes, and workplaces.  Help those who have lost loved ones.  Teach us to forgive.  Jesus, be the source of reconciliation between all of us.  Heal our wounds, help us to let go of hatred and fear, and recreate us into peacemakers.  Saint Guntramnus, pray for us.  Amen.
