Dear Holy Spirit, Saint Jerome Emiliani founded three orphanages, a shelter for repentant prostitutes, and a hospital. I lift up to you the orphans, foster children, and abandoned people in my town and nation. I especially ask Saint Jerome to intercede for the children and teenagers who do not have both parents embracing them with healthy love. Spirit of God, lead all these wounded little ones to people who care, people who will raise their self-esteem, people who will help them heal from the pain of being rejected and forgotten. And show me what I can do to help them discover Your love. Saint Jerome Emiliani, pray for me. Amen.
QUOTES by Saint Jerome Emiliani
God wishes to test you like gold in the furnace. The dross is consumed by the fire, but the pure gold remains and its value increases. It is in this manner that God acts with his good servant, who puts his hope in him and remains unshaken in times of distress. >>
If then you remain constant in faith in the face of trial, the Lord will give you peace and rest for a time in this world, and forever in the next. >>
