Faithful Jesus, Saint Irenaeus of Lyons was privileged to be a student of Saint Polycarp, who had been a disciple of Saint John the Apostle. He said: “I listened to Saint Polycarp’s instructions very carefully. I wrote down his actions and his words, not on paper, but on my heart.” I ask him to pray for all those who are my instructors, especially those who have helped me advance on the spiritual path, including my friends and family. Give them special blessings for all they have taught me, and humble me when I don’t want to accept their instructions. Let the truth take root in my heart. Saint Irenaeus of Lyons, pray for us. Amen.
