Prayer to St. Wolfgang Lord, help us to follow in your footsteps just as your Apostles did, that we may be a good example to others. Grant us the graces we need to be good disciples and always lead our friends on the path to holiness. Saint Wolfgang, pray for us. Amen.
St. Isidore was a poor farmer who served a wealthy landowner. He was a man of deep prayer & faithfully attended daily Mass, which caused scandal as he was accused of neglecting his work. One morning his employer found 2 men helping him St. Isidore with his plowing. Seen by the landowner but unseen by St. Isidore, the landowner understood that they were angels sent by God to help St. Isidore in return for his faithfulness.
Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book? When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me. In God will I praise his word: in the Lord will I praise his word. Psalms KJV
Showing my true, real self is hard. Bullied, teased, made fun of for who you really were is hard to come from. That's why people put up walls, barriers, masks, to hide behind. They're afraid that people will do it again, just like the people before.
St. Josaphat Prayer Lord, fill your Church with the Spirit that gave Saint Josaphat courage to lay down his life for his people. By his prayers may your Spirit make us strong and willing to offer our lives for our brothers and sisters. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, One God, for ever and ever. Amen.
