September 1 – Saint Giles

Saint Giles

Loving God, many of the people who listened to Saint Giles preach were handicapped beggars, so he built hospitals and safe houses for them that were handicap-accessible.  Due to his own damaged leg and his concern for the crippled paupers who needed alms for survival, he became the patron saint of beggars and the handicapped.  I ask him to pray for those who are confined to their beds or wheelchairs, and for street people.  Lord, heal them, lead them to therapies that will help them recover, give them shelter and jobs, and show them how to rely on You for their strength.  Saint Giles, pray for us.  Amen.
