October 12 – Saint Edwin

Saint Edwin of Northumbria

listenO Jesus Christ, Saint Edwin (c.586-633) was a pagan king who listened to a Christian preacher publicly explain the Gospel.  He accepted salvation, renounced his worship of the gods, and commanded his high priest to destroy their altars and temples.  I ask him to pray for all those who today worship other gods and belong to pagan religions, especially those in witchcraft covens and satanism.  Dear Savior, rescue them from the strongholds of demons.  Interrupt their ceremonies by revealing Your holy presence.  Lead all these souls to Heaven, especially because they are most in need Your mercy.  Saint Edwin, pray for them.  Amen.

Quote for Today

Venerable Fulton Sheen (1895-1979)

quoteNever forget that there are only two philosophies to rule your life: the one of the cross, which starts with the fast and ends with the feast. The other of Satan, which starts with the feast and ends with the headache.”


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