June 5 – Saint Boniface


listenOur Father in Heaven, Saint Boniface left everything that was familiar to him to evangelize the German tribes and reorganize the Church in France.  He traveled continuously, always dealing with change.  I lift up to You my comfort zone and ask him to intercede for me whenever I am challenged to move into unfamiliar territory.  Whether this means changing where I live or work, or doing a ministry that is new to me, help me to see this as an adventure rather than a sorrow.  Hold my hand, and give me clear direction, so that I always know it is You who leads me into new places.  Saint Boniface, pray for me.  Amen.

Quotes for Today

Saint Boniface (675-754)

quoteWhat we ourselves cannot bear let us bear with the help of Christ. For he is all-powerful and he tells us: ‘My yoke is easy and my burden is light’.”

quoteCan there be a more fitting pursuit in youth or a more valuable possession in old age than a knowledge of Holy Scripture? In the midst of storms it will preserve you from the dangers of shipwreck and guide you to the shore of an enchanting paradise and the ever-lasting bliss of the angels.”


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