Holy God, Saint Otto of Bamberg (1060 or 1061-1139) was a priest who worked for the royal court, but when his emperor broke from Rome and then appointed him bishop, the saint refused the position, declaring his obedience to the Church. He became bishop only after the Pope consecrated him. I ask him to pray for all of us who serve both country and Church. Show us, O Lord, how to find the holy way to satisfy the needs of both. May we always put You above everything else. I ask him to pray especially for Christian employees of secular companies, that we always find the opportunity to serve You without sacrificing a job well done. Saint Otto of Bamberg, pray for us. Amen.

Civilization is always in danger when those who have never learned to obey are given the right to command.”
