Saint Theresa of Lisieux

October 1

Saint Theresa of LisieuxLoving God, Saint Theresa of Lisieux described her path to holiness as a journey of every-increasing intimacy with You through prayer.  She said, “For me, prayer is a surge of the heart … a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy.”  I ask her to intercede for me as I struggle to overcome the fears that contradict Your love for me.  Whenever I go through difficulties with the feeling that You are ignoring me or that my problems will end in disaster, teach me to trust in You.  Let my prayer become one of joy in the midst of trials by awakening me to Your caring and awesome power.  Saint Theresa, pray for me.  Amen.


QUOTES by Saint Therese of Lisieux

To me He has given His Infinite Mercy, and it is in this resplendent mirror that I gaze upon all His other attributes. There all appear radiant with love; even justice, perhaps more than the others, seems to me clothed with love… >>

How little known is the Merciful love of Jesus. >>

O my God! Will your Justice alone find souls willing to immolate themselves as victims? Does Your Merciful Love need them too?’ How sweet is the way of Love! How I want to apply myself to doing the will of God always with the greatest self-surrender! >>

No one can make me frightened anymore, because I know what to believe about His mercy and His love; I know that in the twinkling of an eye all those thousands of sins would be consumed as a drop of water cast into a blazing fire. >>

How can I fear a God who is nothing but mercy and love? >>

Ah! The Lord is so good to me that it is quite impossible for me to fear Him. He has always given me what I desire or, rather, He has made me desire what He wants to give me. >>

Even if the fire of love seemed to have gone out, I would keep on throwing fuel in it and Jesus would take care to light it up again. >>

Holiness consists simply in doing God’s will, and being just what God wants us to be. >>

Our Lord does not come down from Heaven every day to lie in a golden ciborium. He comes to find another heaven which is infinitely dearer to Him–the heaven of our souls, created in His Image, the living temples of the Adorable Trinity. >>

Saint Jerome

September 30

Saint JeromeO Jesus, You are the Word of God made flesh, and Saint Jerome said that ignorance of the scriptures is ignorance of God.  As secretary to the Pope, he received the commission to translate the Bible from its original languages into Latin—the Vulgate.  I ask him to pray for my time spent reading scripture and my ability to translate it into everyday life.  Inspire me, O Lord, to discover more fully what the Bible teaches about Your love and anoint my mind to understand what it says about holy living.  Use Your Word to show me how to fulfill the calling You have placed upon my life.  Saint Jerome, pray for me.  Amen.


QUOTES by Saint Jerome

For the Lord is gracious and merciful and prefers the conversion of a sinner rather than his death. Patient and generous in his mercy, he does not give in to human impatience but is willing to wait a long time for our repentance. >>

Be at peace with your own soul, then heaven and earth will be at peace with you. >>

So extraordinary is the Lord’s mercy! >>

Today we must translate the words of Scripture into deeds, and instead of speaking saintly words, we must act them. >>

Saints Michael and Gabriel and Raphael

September 29

Saints Michael, Gabriel, and RaphaelHeavenly King, You have given us archangels Saints Michael and Gabriel and Raphael to assist us during our pilgrimage on earth.  Saint Michael is our protector; I ask him to come to my aid, fight for all my loved ones, and protect us from danger.  Saint Gabriel is a messenger of the Good News; I ask him to help me clearly hear Your voice and to teach me the truth.  Saint Raphael is the healing angel; I ask him to take my need for healing and that of everyone I know, lift it up to Your throne of grace and deliver back to us the gift of recovery.  Help us, O Lord, to realize more fully the reality of the archangels and their desire to serve us.  Holy angels, pray for us.  Amen.

Saint Wenceslaus

September 28

Saint WenceslausBeloved Savior, Saint Wenceslaus was a devout Christian ruler in a heathen land.  Surrounded by pagan beliefs, he grew stronger in his convictions.  He gave his help to the poor more often, purified himself through penance, prayed to the blessed Mother, and spread the true Faith throughout the kingdom.  I ask him to pray for the Christians I know who are surrounded by non-Christians: our college students and public school children, people who work for secular companies, and those who travel to non-Christian countries.  O Jesus, increase our faith and protect us from outside influences.  Saint Wenceslaus, pray for us.  Amen.

Saint Vincent de Paul

September 27

Saint Vincent de PaulGenerous God, Saint Vincent de Paul developed a special concern for the poor after giving the Sacraments to a dying peasant.  He cared for slaves, prostitutes, war victims, and the destitute.  I ask him to pray for all the Saint Vincent de Paul Societies, the churches that sponsor them, all other charitable ministries, and the people they help.  O Lord, multiply the provisions they distribute to the needy, give new strength to the workers, and bring in more volunteers who serve the poor with genuine love.  Protect these ministries and teach us all by their example that helping the needy brings great joy.  Saint Vincent, pray for us.  Amen.


QUOTES by Saint Vincent de Paul

The Church teaches us that mercy belongs to God. Let us implore Him to bestow on us the spirit of mercy and compassion, so that we are filled with it and may never lose it. Only consider how much we ourselves are in need of mercy. >>

Extend your mercy towards others, so that there can be no one in need whom you meet without helping. For what hope is there for us if God should withdraw His Mercy from us? >>

The most powerful weapon to conquer the devil is humility. For, as he does not know at all how to employ it, neither does he know how to defend himself from it. >>

A sure way for a Christian to grow rapidly in holiness is a conscientious effort to carry out God’s will in all circumstances and at all times. >>
