Blessed Redeemer, Saints Nereus and Achilleus were Roman soldiers who converted to Christianity during the early persecutions. They defected from the army because they could no longer obey orders or cooperate with their comrades. This took great courage, because it meant dying for You. I ask them to pray for me when I am held back by any sort of fear. Especially give me courage, O God, in professing my faith. Show me how to handle the times when my employer asks me to do something that is wrong, or when a friend invites me to cooperate with something that is sinful. Saints Nereus and Achilleus, pray for me. Amen.
