Loving Father, Saint Aquilinus of Milan (5th century) became a traveling preacher instead of accepting a high church office. Serving God’s people was more important to him than status and power. I accept the position in life to which You have called me. Help me to be content with doing Your work in my home, my current job, my volunteer work at church and in the community, and take from me every restless desire for wanting recognition and control. Help me to go only where You direct me. If it is Your will that I work in a high position, teach me to grow in humility, each and every day. Saint Aquilinus of Milan, pray for me. Amen.

Giving alms is a source of blessings, so do not hesitate to hold out your hand. Pray for those who greet you with charity, but even more for those who throw you out, for these are also your benefactors.”
The prayer above is from Terry Modica’s book Daily Prayers with the Saints.
