October 5 – Saint Flora of Beaulieu

Saint Flora of Beaulieu

listenHoly Spirit, sometimes Saint Flora of Beaulieu (1309-1347) did not like her cloistered life in the convent.  She felt tempted to return home to her family, but she stayed in the order and eventually You rewarded her with the gifts of visions and prophecies.  I ask her to pray for all those in religious orders.  Give them persistence in doing what You called them to do, no matter how difficult it gets.  Help them when they are tempted to take an easier path.  O God, be their source of encouragement for continuing in their vocations, and remind them of Your promise to reward them with gifts beyond their imagining.  Saint Flora, pray for me.  Amen.
