March 14 – Saint Matilda of Saxony


listenO My Savior, though Saint Matilda of Saxony married a king, she did not lord it over others.  She often visited the sick and imprisoned.  Her husband learned much from her holiness, taking greater interest in the needs of his people and using his power to ease their suffering.  I give to You, Lord, all those in my life who have the power, authority or wealth to improve the lives of others.  Teach them to become an instrument of Your love.  Help them to become a better disciple of the Gospel.  Create situations that will give them a greater compassion for those who in need and a stronger desire to get involved.  Saint Matilda, pray for us.  Amen.
