Blessed Lord, Saint Syrus of Genoa was a bishop whose virtuous life was such a powerful witness of mercy and charity and miraculous powers that Christianity spread throughout his diocese and beyond. I ask him to pray for me to be able to examine myself honestly—looking at how strong or weak I am in the virtues. O Lord, show me how much of a difference my piety makes in the people around me. To the extent that they complain about me, teach me how to become more like You, so that it is the virtues they see in me and not my sin. Multiply the little good that is in me to reveal Your great love. Saint Syrus of Genoa, pray for me. Amen.
