Dear Father, You have given all the saints in Heaven eternal happiness and they now live in the fullness of Your glory. Because of their holy love for You, they also care about me and my family, my friends, my church, and my neighbors. Thank You for the gift of their friendship and the witness of their holy lives. I ask our patron saints and every saint who has become especially dear to me to intercede for us. I ask them to help us journey safely on the narrow path that leads to Heaven. O Lord, give us their protection. Grant us their assistance in overcoming temptation and gaining the fullness of life with You. Amen.
Quotes for Today
Saint Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153)
Feast day August 20
“For the Feast of All Saints”
We should not only want to be with the saints, we should also hope to possess their happiness. While we desire to be in their company, we must also earnestly seek to share in their glory. Do not imagine that there is anything harmful in such an ambition as this.”
Venerable Fulton Sheen (1895-1979)
Our Lord did not ask us to give up the things of earth, but to exchange them for better things.”
The prayer above is from Terry Modica’s book Daily Prayers with the Saints.
