September 22 – Saint Maurice

Saint Maurice

listenHoly Lord, Saint Maurice (d.c. 287) was a Christian officer in charge of a legion of converts in an anti-Christian army.  He had a very challenging and significant responsibility to help his men remain strong in the Faith despite persecutions.  When he and his men refused to sacrifice to the gods, they were martyred.  I ask him to pray for me—and all church leaders—to be courageous and full of wisdom in guiding people into becoming better Christians—living the way You call us to live, standing up for the true Faith, and building a team that supports each other in the midst of evil and violence.  Saint Maurice, pray for me.  Amen.

quoteThe Bible tells us that the poor, the downtrodden, the oppressed, the needy, and the hungry and thirsty were the Lord’s favorites. Why, then, should they not be our favorites as well?”
