Saint James the Greater

July 25

Saint James the Greater, ApostleO Gentle Jesus, Saint James was one of Your first apostles, but he started out as a very impulsive, self-centered man.  He dared to ask You for a place of honor in Your kingdom, and he wanted You to destroy the villages that had rejected You, but eventually he developed a true understanding of holiness.  I ask him to pray that my humility grows stronger than my pride, that I submit my will to Your will, and that when I speak, my words reveal Your gentleness and love.  Restrain me when I want to rush ahead, and give me a broader perspective when I’m seeing things through a narrow, limited view.  Saint James, pray for me.  Amen.
