Lord of Love, Saint Elizabeth of Portugal was married to a king, and her spiritual life was often interrupted by politics and family arguments. She regained her inner peace by spending time in prayer and doing works of charity. I ask her to pray for my family whenever we are quarreling, for my workplace whenever office politics interfere with getting the job done right, and for my church whenever infighting threatens the effectiveness of our ministries. Teach us, O Lord, to always run to You first in prayer and to serve each other with love in order to bring an end to divisions and political maneuvering. Saint Elizabeth of Portugal, pray for us. Amen.
