Divine Jesus, you sent Our Lady of Lourdes, the Blessed Mother Mary, to Saint Bernadette to show the world that God is real. Just like Mary asked the girl to dig for a spring of healing water to appear, show me how to be cleansed of my sinful tendencies. Give to me Your dear Mother when I need her tender love and holy inspiration. As I go through difficulties, cover me with her prayers. When I have important decisions to make, ask her to intercede for me until I understand and follow the Holy Spirit’s guidance. When it’s time for me to die, send her to carry me peacefully into the arms of our heavenly Father. Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for me. Amen.
Quote for Today
Pope Saint Gregory II (669-731)
Feast day February 11
It often happens that where correction fails to bring men to an acknowledgment of the truth, the constant and gentle persuasion of their table companions (sharing meals), leads them back to the paths of goodness.”
The prayer above is from Terry Modica’s book Daily Prayers with the Saints.
