June 8 – Saint Medard


listenJesus My Lord, Saint Medard served as a bishop during very difficult times, and his long life of spiritual leadership created a tremendous impression on the people.  Because of his patronage against bad weather, I ask him to intercede for me during the storms of my life as well as the storms in nature.  Protect me and my home.  And Lord, help the victims of hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and other natural disasters.  Send in more helpers and multiply the supplies that are needed for their aid.  You calmed the storm on the Sea of Galilee; deliver us from the storms that are raging around us now.  Saint Medard, pray for us.  Amen.
