January 16 – Saint Berard


Jesus My Lord, Saint Berard was assigned the task of converting the Muslims in Morocco.  There, he began preaching in the marketplace, which got him arrested and beaten.  When he refused to renounce You, the Sultan beheaded him.  I seek his intercession for my courage and willingness to go where You lead me and to evangelize according to the Father’s call.  Help me to take my focus off of my inadequacies and fears, placing it instead on You and Your love.  Protect me from all obstacles, and show me how to keep moving forward into the Father’s arms when I am persecuted for my faith.  Saint Berard, pray for me.  Amen
