Dear Jesus, Saint Francis Borgia led an easy life as a powerful nobleman with a great marriage. After his wife died, he entered the priesthood. To humble him, his Superior treated him in ways that were opposite of his former life, giving him the hardest work and making him serve all the other priests. I ask him to help me examine how much I like being served and to pray for me and all those I know who have positions of status. O Lord, help us to find pleasure in doing menial tasks for the sake of others. Inspire political leaders to put the needs of the people above their own desire for power and prestige. Saint Francis, pray for us. Amen.
