June 20 – Saint Alban


listenHeavenly Father, Saint Alban was converted by a priest whom he sheltered from persecutions and rescued by changing clothes with him.  As the patron saint of converts, I ask him to pray with me for all the people I know who have not yet converted.  O Lord, remove from their lives all the crutches they’ve been leaning on when they should be turning to You.  When people reach their bottom, help them to see that they have nowhere else to turn, so that they look upwards to You and realize it’s You they need.  Send angels and people into their lives who will deliver them into Your arms.  Saint Alban, pray for us.  Amen.
