Generous God, as a testament of Saint Macrina the elder’s great holiness and loving devotion to family, two of her grandchildren became saints: Basil, whom she raised, and Gregory of Nyssa. I place into her intercession my own grandchildren—be they born or unborn, of my flesh or spiritual. Guard them against financial poverty and the impoverishment of the soul. Pray that I become a better example of the joys of serving You. Let me not teach them anything that is contrary to Your will. Help me to pass down my faith as a legacy that will last them throughout all eternity. Saint Macrina, pray for us. Amen.
