July 8 – Saint Kilian


listenHoly God, Saint Kilian (c. 640- c. 689) was a bishop who traveled throughout his diocese to reach all the parishes and minister to his flock.  He realized that his calling to be a missionary meant going beyond the borders of his own country, so he took eleven companions and left home to evangelize Gaul.  I ask him to intercede for me whenever I travel, that wherever I go I am a missionary for You, O Lord.  Help me to chose vacations that are more than just pleasure trips that serve only me. Provide me with opportunities to share my faith every place I go, both locally and afar, and give me safety in all of my trips.  Saint Kilian, pray for me.  Amen.

Quote for Today

Venerable Fulton Sheen (1895-1979)

quoteGod has given different gifts to different people. There is no basis for feeling inferior to another who has a different gift. Once it is realized that we shall be judged by the gift we have received, rather than the gift we have not, one is completely delivered from a false sense of inferiority.”


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