God of Heaven, Saint Anthelm strayed from You when he got caught up in Church politics, seeking leadership positions to increase his power and authority. However, during a visit to a monastery, the attitude of service he witnessed changed his heart. Resigning from his office, he joined that monastery. I ask him to pray for the people in my diocese, town, and nation who are controlled by a desire to gain positions of status for their own personal benefit. Help us all, dear God, to discover that our truest and best successes come only from knowing Your love and living a life of service. Saint Anthelm, pray for us. Amen.
