June 1 – Saint Justin Martyr


listenDear Savior, Saint Justin Martyr (also known as Saint Justin the Philosopher) struggled with his intellect in order to find You.  He had studied various philosophies, filling his mind with many ideas that were contrary to Christianity, and this made it difficult for him to accept the Faith.  But once converted, he wrote strong defenses of Christian beliefs.  I ask him to pray for those who are highly educated intellectuals.  Help them, O Lord, to get in touch with their spiritual hungers.  Guide them in overcoming the perceived need for everything to be logical and fully understandable.  Lead them to the humility that is necessary for accepting the true Faith.  Saint Justin Martyr, pray for us.  Amen.

Quote for Today

Saint Justin Martyr (103-165)

quoteHe who bears the burdens of others, assists all, humbles himself to all, even to his inferiors, and supplies the wants of the poor with what he has received from God, is truly the imitator of God.”


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