June 6 – Saint Norbert


listenO Jesus Savior, Saint Norbert chose the priesthood because it seemed to be a good career move, but You changed his heart.  A dramatic escape from death convinced him to take his vows seriously, and he began a new life of penance.  He devoted his time to teaching priests and increasing their holiness.  I ask him to pray for all the priests I know, as well as seminarians and all clergy everywhere.  Help them, O Lord, to get rid of any worldly or self-centered reasons for entering the priesthood, and purify their hearts with a greater understanding of the privilege of being Your image on Earth.  Saint Norbert, pray for us.  Amen.
