December 19 – Blessed Pope Urban V

Blessed Urban V

listenO Crucified Savior, Blessed Urban V was Pope when the Church was ruled from France instead of Rome.  Though he tried to restore the papacy to Rome, he was forced to return his leadership to France in order to protect the Church.  This gave him tremendous sadness.  I ask him to pray for the situations in my life that have given me a heavy heart because efforts to accomplish Your plans have failed.  Forgive the people, dear Jesus, who have said no to You by returning to their sinful ways.  I trust that You will eventually succeed in Your plans and the new efforts will produce glorious fruits.  Blessed Urban, pray for me.  Amen.
