Gracious God, Saint John Capistrano was commissioned by the Pope to unite the kings of Europe against the invading Turks who wanted to wipe out Christianity. He succeeded by inspiring them to place their trust in You. Even though Saint John Capistrano was seventy years old, he ran to the battle front and encouraged the soldiers by holding up his crucifix and shouting, “Victory, Jesus, victory!” The enemy ran away in fear. I ask him to pray for me whenever I have opportunities to encourage others. Give me words that inspire belief in the power of the Cross and show us how to accomplish the impossible! Saint John, pray for us. Amen.
