Saint Macrina the Elder

January 14

Saint-Macrina-the-ElderGenerous 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.
