October 22 – Saints Nunilo & Alodia

Saints Nunilo and Alodia

listenO Gentle Lord, Saints Nunilo and Alodia (d.c.842/51) were daughters of a Muslim who was a kind man and allowed his Christian wife to raise their daughters in the Christian faith.  After his death, their mother married a Muslim who attacked Christianity.  He had the girls arrested. When they refused to deny Christ, they were placed in a brothel and later beheaded. I ask them to pray for all children being raised in multi-faith homes and step-families. Holy Spirit, anoint their minds to believe the true Faith and remain devoted to it.  I also ask them to pray for abused step-children.  Rescue them, O Lord, and heal their wounds.  Help them to receive the love from You that they could not receive from their abusers.  Saints Nunilo and Alodia, pray for us.  Amen.
