Saint Margaret of Antioch

July 20

Saint Margaret of AntiochO Loving Lord, Saint Margaret of Antioch was the daughter of a pagan priest.  Her escape from his false beliefs was depicted in a story of being swallowed by a dragon representing paganism, and then escaping from its belly as if being born anew.  Because of this tale, she has become the patron saint of pregnancy, labor, and childbirth, so I ask her to pray for every expectant mother I know, especially those who are having difficult pregnancies or who have been unable to conceive.  Touch their wombs, dear Lord, and give them easy deliveries and healthy children.  Protect the lives of babies who might be aborted.  Saint Margaret of Antioch, pray for us.  Amen.
