February 20 – Saint Amata of Assisi


Heavenly Father, when she was young, Saint Amata of Assisi (d.1250) rejected You and rebelled against morality.  Eventually her aunt, Saint Clare of Assisi, converted her and brought the girl into her religious order.  I lift up to you all the teenagers I know; guide them to true wisdom, which comes from the Holy Spirit, and help them to desire good values as part of their relationship with a good and loving God.   I also give to You everyone else who is rebelling against Truth, including the media that spreads immorality.  May the victory of Jesus set them all free from the demons that try to block the way to Heaven.  Saint Amata of Assisi, pray for us.  Amen.

Quote for Today

Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen (1895-1979)

quoteThe person who thinks only of himself says only prayers of petition; the one who thinks of his neighbor says prayers of intercession; whoever thinks only of loving and serving God says prayers of abandonment to God’s will, and this is the prayer of the saints.”


The prayer above is from Terry Modica’s book Daily Prayers with the Saints.
