November 23 – Saint Clement the 1st

Saint Clement I

listenBlessed Savior, Saint Clement the 1st knew the Apostles personally before they were martyred.  As pope, he challenged his people to follow their examples.  He said, “We ought to put aside vain and useless concerns and should consider what is good, pleasing and acceptable in the sight of Him who made us.”  I ask him to pray against any worries in me, my friends, family, and fellow parishioners.  Dear Lord, teach us to keep our focus off worldly matters, because they are meaningless in view of eternity.  Help us to see everything, even our deaths, from the perspective of Your kingdom.  Saint Clement, pray for us.  Amen.
