Holy Jesus, Saint Sabas served You as a lector in church until he was captured by heathens. When he refused to eat food that had been sacrificed to idols, he was martyred. Make me aware, O Lord, of the “food” that the world offers, which is poisonous to my soul. Purify me of appetites for immoral shows and movies, from spending money on goods I don’t need while the poor go hungry, and from socializing with people who might lead me into sin. Give me the strength and courage to say no to everything that is not part of Your Kingdom, even if the cost is ridicule and rejection. Saint Sabas , pray for me. Amen.
