Loving Father, Saint Leo the Great was pope during fearsome times. Heathen armies were attacking the faithful in many places and Christians were spreading errors about the Faith. Yet, he led the Church wisely and courageously, refusing to fear any threat, any difficulty, or any army. I ask him to pray for the protection of today’s pope, all Church leaders, laity, and ministries, especially where they are suffering persecutions. Teach us, O Lord, how to overcome the sin of worry, anxiety, and fearfulness, for these are signs that we are not trusting in You. Increase our faith and be our source of courage in all trials. Saint Leo, pray for us. Amen.
