Holy Spirit of God, Saint Deogratias was a bishop who bought slaves in order to free them, using money he raised by selling church goods. He found homes for them when he could, and housed the rest in large churches, purchasing supplies to get them started in their new life. Give me, too, O God, a heart as dedicated as this saint’s in helping those who are being treated unjustly. Purify me of apathy, open my eyes to the needs of people around me, and give me courage to make a difference. Help me to remember that every human being is precious and valuable to You. Saint Deogratias, pray for me. Amen.
