July 21 – Saint Lawrence of Brindisi

Saint Lawrence of Brindisi

listenO Prince of Peace, Saint Lawrence of Brindisi served You as a military chaplain who preached effectively and taught the Faith in many languages.  I ask him to pray for all the chaplains in military service, and for the troops to whom they minister.  Teach them how to inspire others to form this world into a safe place for all countries, bringing Your peace to Earth.  Guide them in their decisions, protect them from incidents of war, and help them to find their place in Your heart, even while working for governments in battle.  Heal the physical and emotional wounds that were caused by the evils of war.  Saint Lawrence, pray for us.  Amen.

Quotes for Today

Saint Lawrence of Brindisi (1559-1619)

quoteGrace and love are nothing without faith, since without faith it is impossible to please God. And faith is not conceived unless the word of God is preached. Faith comes through hearing, and what is heard is the word of Christ.”

quoteO, if we only considered this reality! Namely that God is really present to us when we speak to Him by praying that He really listens to our prayer, even if we only pray with the heart and mind. And that not only is He present and listens to us, but that He can and desires to willingly comply, and with the greatest pleasure, to our requests.”

quoteThe Holy Spirit sweetens the yoke of the divine law and lightens its weight, so that we may observe God’s commandments with the greatest of ease and even with pleasure.”


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