August 30 – Saint Fiacre

Saint Fiacre

listenO Lord, Saint Fiacre (c.600-670) was a holy hermit to whom people came in droves to learn more about the Christian Faith.  Concerned about their lack of food and shelter during their visits with him, he built a hospice and farmed the land to supply their needs.  I ask him to pray for farmers and all those who provide nourishment and sanctuary.  Father, increase the yield of our crops, give us good growing weather, and multiply the resources to meet the needs of the people.  Bless the ministries that help the needy and homeless and increase the donations they receive so that there is always enough to give out.  Saint Fiacre, pray for us.  Amen.
