March 26 – Saint Ludger


listenMost Gracious God, Saint Ludger (742-809) poured all his energy into his priestly ministry and delighted in teaching about You.  He spoke to anyone who would listen, any time he would find an opportunity.  O Lord, take away my laziness and lack of enthusiasm.  I ask Saint Ludger to intercede for me, that I may develop great awe in giving You all I’ve got.  Teach me so much about Your love that I bubble over with fervor.  Take away any fears that hold me back from shining forth with Your Light.  Give me words that teach Who You are, with an intensity that spreads my delight in knowing You.  Saint Ludger, pray for me.  Amen.
