Mighty Lord, Saint Paul the hermit was raised with the luxuries of an upper-class family, a good education, and Christian parents. But his life took a dramatic turn at age fifteen when his parents died. To escape persecution, he made the desert his home, survived on fruit and water, wore only leaves for clothes, and spent all his time in prayer. This is what formed him into a saint. O God, I lift up to You all my hardships, that they may bring me closer to You, increase my prayer life and allow You to be the source of all I need. Use everything in my life, both good and bad, to help me grow in holiness. Saint Paul, pray for me. Amen.
