Saints Cosmas and Damian

September 26

Saints Cosmas and DamianO My Jesus, Saints Cosmas and Damian were twins who became excellent doctors.  They refused payment for their medical care because they believed that when they treated patients, they were also caring for You.  By conveying great love, they won the hearts of their patients as they taught them about the Faith.  I ask them to pray for my special skills, that I use them for Your glory.  I also ask them to pray for all those in the medical field, that they grow in generosity of spirit.  Bring conversion to the unsaved and teach Christians to serve You through their professional lives.  Saints Cosmas and Damian, pray for us.  Amen.

Saint Sergius

September 25

Saint SergiusSpirit of Wisdom, Saint Sergius was not very intelligent, but he learned to read and write because of a strong desire to study the Bible.  He became so learned in the Faith that important rulers sought his advice.  People trusted him because of his confidence in You and his love for them.  I ask him to pray for all those I know who rely on their intelligence and educational degrees more than they rely on You.  Help us to see these as tools You have provided, but also remind us that knowledge of the Faith is accessible to everyone.  Teach us what we need to learn through the opportunities of everyday life.  Saint Sergius, pray for us.  Amen.

Saint Pacificus

September 24

Saint PacificusO Christ Jesus, Saint Pacificus was a priest who had the gift of reading people’s consciences, and when they came to him for Confession, he helped them get more deeply in touch with their sins and receive fuller healing through Your forgiveness.  I ask him to pray for me and my loved ones, that we become more aware of what our consciences are telling us.  Form our consciences, Lord, and help us to stop rationalizing our sins, to come out of denial about what is wrong in our lives, to face painful areas that need healing, and to overcome the pride that keeps us from seeking Your forgiveness.  Saint Pacificus, pray for us.  Amen.

Saint Pio of Pietrelcina

September 23

Saint Padre PioDear God, Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina experienced the stigmata, ecstasies, bilocation, and the gift of prophecy, because he had learned to free his soul from this world through the practices of fasting, prayer vigils, solitude, and other mortifications that subdued the passions of his flesh.  I ask him to pray for my spiritual development, that I overcome any worldliness within me.  O Lord, help me to live by his five rules of spiritual growth: weekly confession, daily Communion, spiritual reading, meditation, and frequent examination of conscience.  Help me to completely abandon myself to You.  Padre Pio, pray for me.  Amen.


QUOTES by Saint Pio of Pietrelcina

In the tumult of passions and of adverse circumstances, there arises the dear hope of God’s inexorable mercy. Let us hurry confidently to the tribunal of penance where He, with fatherly anxiety, waits for us. >>

Our Lord sometimes makes you feel the weight of the Cross. This weight seems unbearable but you carry it because in His love and mercy, the Lord helps you and gives you strength. >>

Walk cheerfully and with a sincere and open heart as much as you can, and when you cannot always maintain this holy joy, at least do not lose your trust in God. >>

The most beautiful Credo is that which comes from your lips in darkness, in sacrifice, in pain, in supreme efforts of an unbending will for good. It is this which like a strong bolt of lightning penetrates the darkness of the soul; it is this which in a flash of the tempest lifts you and leads you to God. >>

Remember: The sinner who is sorry for his sins is closer to God than the just man who boasts of his good works. >>

In books we seek God; in prayer we find Him. Prayer is the key which opens God’s heart. >>

Oh the souls! if you knew how much they cost!…God runs after the most stubborn souls. They cost him too much to abandon them. >>

Saint Maurice

September 22

Saint MauriceHoly Lord, Saint Maurice was a Christian officer in charge of a legion of converts in an anti-Christian army.  He had a very challenging and significant responsibility to help his men remain strong in the Faith despite persecutions.  When he and his men refused to sacrifice to the gods, they were martyred.  I ask him to pray for me—and all church leaders—to be courageous and full of wisdom in guiding people into becoming better Christians—living the way You call us to live, standing up for the true Faith, and building a team that supports each other in the midst of evil and violence.  Saint Maurice, pray for me.  Amen.
