October 27 – Saint Frumentius

Saint Frumentius

listenLoving Father, Saint Frumentius (d.c. 383) was called the Apostle of Ethiopia because, as a bishop, he was sent there to spread the Faith.  However, he was captured and taken to the king and made a member of his court. He realized that having such access to the king gave him a better opportunity to introduce Christianity into the country.  I ask Saint Frumentius to intercede for me whenever my plans go astray, especially when those plans were carefully made.  Help me to set aside my own agenda and to welcome the unexpected and recognize what new opportunity God has provided for me.  Remind me when I am surprised or frustrated that You, O Lord, are really the one in charge, and I can always trust in Your plans.  Saint Frumentius, pray for me.  Amen.

Quotes for Today

Venerable Fulton Sheen (1895-1979)


Evil is thus a kind of parasite on goodness. If there were no good by which to measure things, evil could not exist. Men sometimes forget this, and say, there is so much evil in the world that there cannot be a God. They are forgetting that, if there were no God, they would have no way of distinguishing evil from goodness. The very concept of evil admits and recognizes a Standard, a Whole, a Rule, an Order.”


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