Precious Lord, Saint Lawrence protected the Church’s money from the Roman Empire by giving it to the poor. When the greedy prefect of Rome demanded the Church’s treasures, Saint Lawrence presented to him the poor and the sick, announcing, “This is the Church’s treasure!” I ask him to pray for me to learn how to use material goods only for Your glory. Guide me as I share what I’ve stored up so that I make good decisions about where it should go. Help me to love the needy more than I love money and give me eyes to see all Your people as precious gems in Your crown of glory. Saint Lawrence, pray for me. Amen.
