Saint Mark the Evangelist

April 25

Saint-Mark-the-EvangelistHeavenly Father, Saint Mark the Evangelist ran away in fear when Jesus was arrested, but after the resurrection and the descent of the Holy Spirit in the Upper Room, he became a writer of the Faith, and he helped Saints Paul, Barnabas, and Peter build the new Church.  Take my fears, O Lord, and replace them with a zeal for evangelization using the gifts of the Holy Spirit.  Fill me to overflowing with the Spirit, so that I may boldly and powerfully serve my parish community and the ministries into which You send me.  Give me faithful partners like Saints Paul, Barnabas, and Peter, and use us to build Your Church.  Saint Mark the Evangelist, pray for me.  Amen.

Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen

April 24

Saint-Fidelis-of-SigmaringenO Holy Spirit, Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen was a lawyer who loved to defend the poor.  Eventually he became so disgusted by his colleagues’ greed, immorality, and uncaring attitudes that he left his practice for the priesthood and gave his wealth to needy seminarians and others.  I ask him to intercede for the lawyers of my town and nation.  Inspire them, Lord, to grow closer to You, to become advocates for the unjustly accused, and to work for Your Kingdom.  Help my family and friends who are in court cases, and minister to them through their lawyers, ensuring fair treatment and victory.  Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen, pray for us.  Amen.


QUOTES by Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen

It is because of faith that we exchange the present for the future. >>

Woe to me if I should prove myself but a halfhearted soldier in the service of my thorn crowned Captain. >>

Saint George

April 23

Saint-GeorgeMighty God, Saint George was nicknamed the “Victory Bringer” because he relied on Your power to defeat evil wherever he went.  Starting out as a soldier in his country’s army, he converted and became a soldier for Christ.  Laying down the world’s armor by giving his wealth to the poor, he forever after carried the shield of faith and won many victories for those who sought Your help.  I ask him to pray for the battles I’ve been enduring, and to bring Your triumph into my life.  Help me to overcome the Enemy, Lord Jesus, and teach me how to protect myself with ever-increasing faith.  Saint George, pray for me.  Amen.

Saint Theodore of Sykeon

April 22

Saint-Theodore-of-SykeonLord Jesus, Saint Theodore of Sykeon was a monk and a bishop who worked amazing miracles, including healings.  He put an end to a plague of insects by praying, confidently putting the matter into Your hands.  I ask him to pray for my most difficult situations, that miracles will occur and build up the faith of those who see or hear my testimony.  I also ask Saint Theodore to pray for the people whose need for miracles have come to my attention.  For Your glory, O Lord, do what seems impossible!  Show me how I can pray to become a channel of Your great power, as an instrument of the Holy Spirit.  Saint Theodore of Sykeon, pray for us.  Amen.

Saint Anselm of Canterbury

April 21

Saint-Anselm-of-CanterburyPrecious Savior, Saint Anselm of Canterbury actively fought against slavery in England, even getting politically involved and obtaining legislation that made it illegal to sell human beings.  I ask him to intercede for people today who are enslaved in some way—in countries where slavery is still accepted, in family members and friends who are in bondage to addictions, in myself where sin has entrapped me, and in workplaces where there are people I care about who are being mistreated and made to work in illegal conditions.  Lord Jesus, deliver us into the freedom You won for us on the Cross.  Saint Anselm of Canterbury, pray for us.  Amen.


QUOTES by Saint Anselm of Canterbury

For in saving us whom You (Lord) could justly damn, You are just not because You requite us as we deserve but because You do what befits You as supremely good, even as You are merciful not because You experience any emotion but because we experience the effect [of Your mercy]. So, then, without inconsistency, You both punish justly and spare justly. >>

Spare me through your mercy, do not punish me through your justice. >>

In your mercy heal us, in your love and tenderness remake us. In your compassion bring grace and forgiveness, for the beauty of heaven may your love prepare us. >>

From the moment of her fiat, Mary began to carry all of us in her womb. >>

Faith seeks understanding. I do not seek to understand in order to believe, but I believe in order to understand. For I believe this: unless I believe, I will not understand. >>
