June 11 – Saint Barnabas


listenMost Holy Spirit, Saint Barnabas was converted shortly after Pentecost, and he gave up all his possessions in order to detach from the world and follow the way of Christ to Heaven.  His helpful, compassionate and optimistic nature inspired other new Christians, including Saint Paul.  I ask him to pray for my attitudes.  Loving God, help me to convert any negativity that’s within me into an optimism that comes from hoping and trusting in You.  Deliver me from selfishness and turn it into a generosity that benefits the people who need my help.  Anoint me to become an inspiration for others.  Saint Barnabas, pray for me.  Amen.
