Dear Father in Heaven, Saint Walter of Pontnoise was made an abbot against his will. He fled several times to escape the position, and finally went to Rome to give his resignation directly to the pope. However, the pope asked him to return to his monastery, accept his responsibilities as abbot, and never quit again. There are jobs that I, too, want to get rid of, ministries I would like to say no to, and opportunities for serving that I have run away from. Help me to know which ones I should say yes to, and give me the courage and commitment to obey You. I ask Saint Walter of Pontnoise to intercede for me in these responsibilities. Amen.
