November 20 – Saint Edmund of East Anglia

Saint Edmund of East Anglia

listenMy Lord, Saint Edmund of East Anglia was a king who was captured by pagan invaders.  The enemy wanted him to sign a treaty that would harm his country and Church, but he chose to die rather than to grieve You and hurt his people.  I ask him to pray for me to remain loyal to You and to the people You have called me to serve.  Make me sensitive, Holy Spirit, to the snares of compromise and teach me to avoid mixing the world’s teachings with the true Faith.  When I am pressured to put aside Your ways for the sake of keeping a job or making a good impression, give me courage to do Your will.  Saint Edmund, pray for me.  Amen.

Quote for Today

Venerable Fulton Sheen (1895-1979)

quoteTruth must be sought at all costs, but separate isolated truths will not do. Truth is like life; it has to be taken on its entirety or not at all…. We must welcome truth even if it reproaches and inconveniences us — even if it appears in the place where we thought it could not be found.”


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