O Divine Master, Saint Francis of Paola learned sanctity by separating himself from the world. He discovered that miracles are the rewards of being attached to nothing but You. He advised his followers to use penances to detach from sinful ways. There are many ideas and possessions that I cling to instead of You, making self-sufficiency a higher priority. Help me, Lord, to realize how harmful this is to my soul. I ask Saint Francis of Paola to pray for me to weed out from my life everything that fails to bring me closer to You. Teach me to detach from the world and to love You above all else. Saint Francis, pray for me. Amen.
