Jesus Lamb of God, Saint Jeanne Marie de Maille (1331-1414) is the patron for abuse victims. I lift up to You all the wounded ones in my family, church, neighborhood and circle of friendships. I also lift up to You their abusers. Saint Jeanne Marie, intercede for each one. Embrace them, Lord. Give them a healing of memories. Show them Your holy tears, Your Sacred Heart, and Your deep compassion. Rescue them from current abuses and past hurts. Turn every evil into a good far greater than the imagination can dream. Bring an end to family legacies where abuse has been passed from one generation to the next. Saint Jeanne Marie de Maille, pray for us. Amen.
Quote for Today
Saint Diadochos of Photiki (d.5th century)
Feast day March 29
Freedom of choice is the will of a rational soul readily set into motion towards that very thing it might wish. Let us persuade the soul to be, by habit, readily disposed only towards good, so that we ever consume the memory of evil in good thoughts.”
The prayer above is from Terry Modica’s book Daily Prayers with the Saints.
