Saint CastoriusHoly Lord, Saint Castorius was a carver who was commissioned by the emperor to make several statues.  He pleased the ruler with his artistry, but when he was asked to carve the statue of a local god, he refused because he did not want his skills to contribute to pagan worship.  I ask him to pray for my talents, that I grow in my skills and have more opportunities to use them for Your glory.  Convict me, O God, of the importance of reserving my gifts for holy purposes, for helping others, and for pursuing my vocation.  Teach me to take no credit for my talents and to offer all praises to You.  Saint Castorius, pray for me.  Amen.
