August 3 – Saint Lydia

Saint Lydia

Lord Jesus, Saint Lydia was a business woman, a seller of purple dye. Her business did not take priority over her spiritual life, though, and she became Saint Paul’s first convert in Philippi. She even opened her home to him, hosting him and his ministry. I ask Saint Lydia to pray for entrepreneurs, especially women who own businesses, and for me in my business endeavors. Help us by Your Holy Spirit, O Lord, to make our spiritual growth our top priority. Remind us to turn back to You whenever we let the responsibilities of our work distract us from a good prayer life and from attending opportunities to gain more faith formation. Saint Lydia, pray for us. Amen.
