November 16 – Saint Gertrude

Saint Gertrude

Beloved Lord, Saint Gertrude was a very gifted student and loved every subject except religion.  When she studied philosophy, it began to twist her mind and lead her away from the Faith, so You visited her in a vision and called her back.  From then on she studied Scripture and the writings of the Church Fathers.  I ask her to pray for my studies as well as the educational interests of the high school and college students I know.  Give us discernment, O Holy Spirit, to recognize any deceptions in the materials we read, and increase in us a desire to study those things that will help us grow in holiness.  Saint Gertrude, pray for us.  Amen.
