Saint Melito of Sardis

April 1

Saint-Melito-of-SardisSacred Jesus, as a bishop and an ecclesiastical writer who understood the tremendous value of Your Passion on the Cross, Saint Melito of Sardis wrote: “He suffered for the sake of those who suffer, He was bound for those in bonds.”   Help me to fully grasp the meaning that Your sacrifice has for my life.  When I look upon a crucifix in church or in my home, remind me that by Your stripes I was healed.  Give me a mind that understands why You suffered for me.  Teach me to imitate You in giving passionate love to others, offering up all the pain of difficult relationships for their healing.  Saint Melito, pray for me.  Amen
