Saint Peter FourierBeloved Savior, Saint Peter Fourier was ordained a priest and appointed to a parish that was weak in the Faith.  For thirty years he ministered unceasingly to increase the holiness of his people and provide good religious education.  He led them by his own example.  Eventually, his flock became a model parish.  I ask him to pray for the long-term projects and ministries of my church.  Give me and all those involved the stamina and perseverance we need to continue working with zeal and energy.  Renew us when we grow weary or discouraged.  Help the priests remain powerful in their service as our shepherds.  Saint Peter Fourier, pray for us.  Amen.

QUOTES by Saint Peter Fourier

Those who wish to be too prudent, too careful, who never want to run the risk of losing, or leaving, or letting go of something that belongs to them: possessions, rights, just claims, their rest, their peace of mind, sometimes–no, frequently–miss fine occasions to do great service for God and neighbor and to enrich themselves. >>
