March 24 – Saint Catherine of Sweden


listenJesus My Lord, Saint Catherine of Sweden served you with her mother Saint Bridget by organizing pilgrimages to Jerusalem and other places to stimulate people’s spiritual growth.  In between pilgrimages, they spent their time in prayer and meditation, ministering to the poor and instructing them in religion.  Show me what opportunities I have to encourage spiritual growth in others.  I ask Saint Catherine to pray for me to be successful in such endeavors.  Bless the use of my imagination and inspire my willingness to teach the Faith, in my parish and elsewhere.  Saint Catherine of Sweden, pray for me.  Amen.
