Heavenly Lord, Saint John of Sahagun was not afraid to correct the evils around him, even when the evildoers were powerful people who were likely to take revenge. He could do this because of the graces he received through his prayer life and from attending Mass. I ask him to pray that I increase in grace to better face whatever comes in life. Help me, Holy Spirit, to open up to Your gifts more fully, through an ever-increasing devotional life and by experiencing Mass in a more powerful, more meaningful way, so that all the graces You offer will become available as I need them. Saint John of Sahagun, pray for me. Amen.
