Lord Jesus, Saint Raymond of Penyafort was a wonderful Confessor because he had great compassion for sinners. I ask for his intercession in my efforts to become more and more like You every day. I want to overcome my sinfulness, but it is so difficult. Give me the courage to identify what needs to be changed in me. Help me to grow in the determination to resist my sinful ways. Free me again from the slavery of sin. Reveal, through the Holy Spirit, the Father’s infinite love for me even when I commit sins, and remind me that, because of Your great sacrifice on the Cross, forgiveness is always available. Saint Raymond, pray for me. Amen.
QUOTES by Saint Raymond of Penyafort
Look then on Jesus, the author and preserver of faith: in complete sinlessness he suffered, and at the hands of those who were his own, and was numbered among the wicked. As you drink the cup of the Lord Jesus (how glorious it is!), give thanks to the Lord, the giver of all blessings. >>
May the God of love and peace set your hearts at rest and speed you on your journey; may He meanwhile shelter you from disturbance by others in the hidden recesses of His love, until He brings you at last into that place of complete plenitude where you will repose for ever in the vision of peace, in the security of trust, and in the restful enjoyment of His riches. >>
