June 18 – Saint Elizabeth of Schönau


listenMy Lord Jesus Christ, Saint Elizabeth of Schönau was a visionary favored with ecstasies and prophesies.  Daily, she received visits either from You, the Virgin Mary, angels, or the saint of the day, receiving instructions for her spiritual growth.  Because of this, she was often assaulted by demonic forces, and now is the patron saint against temptations.  I ask her to pray for me when I am tempted, and when demons attack me.  Help me, O Lord, to know my patron saints and angels more intimately, so that I may fully benefit from their protection, from their prayers, and from their spiritual direction.  Saint Elizabeth of Schönau, pray for me.  Amen.
