My Lord, Saint Edmund of East Anglia was a king who was captured by pagan invaders. The enemy wanted him to sign a treaty that would harm his country and Church, but he chose to die rather than to grieve You and hurt his people. I ask him to pray for me to remain loyal to You and to the people You have called me to serve. Make me sensitive, Holy Spirit, to the snares of compromise and teach me to avoid mixing the world’s teachings with the true Faith. When I am pressured to put aside Your ways for the sake of keeping a job or making a good impression, give me courage to do Your will. Saint Edmund, pray for me. Amen.
