Blessed Redeemer, Saints Paul Miki and companions were crucified together because of their faith in You. I offer to You the crosses in my life. Use them for the salvation of the people around me who don’t yet know You, especially those who are in my family. Help me to endure this sacrifice with the same joy Saint Paul and his fellow martyrs had. Turn the crosses I must endure into a ministry of prayers more powerful than words and rituals, and take away the other crosses—the ones You are not asking me to carry. Help me to experience Your love in every holy cross I must bear. Saint Paul Miki and companions, pray for me. Amen.
