Dear God, Saint Peter Chrysologus was called “the golden-worded one” because of his outstanding gift of preaching. He could be powerful yet brief, direct while being compassionate, and persuasive without being judgmental. I ask him to pray for my own use of words. Holy Spirit, give me Your words to speak whenever I am in any conversation, even casual ones—in the grocery store or church, serving on jury duty or parish committees, dealing with loved ones or addressing strangers, meeting people of status or facing those who make a poor impression. Let Your words become my words. Saint Peter, pray for me. Amen.
Quotes for Today
Saint Peter Chrysologus (406-450)
When you fast, if your mercy is thin your harvest will be thin; when you fast, what you pour out in mercy overflows into your barn. Therefore, do not lose by saving, but gather in by scattering. Give to the poor, and you give to yourself. You will not be allowed to keep what you have refused to give to others.”
Blessed Solanus Casey (1870-1957)
Feast day July 30
Do not pray for easy lives; pray to be stronger people. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal to your tasks.”
We are only here for a time, everything should be directed to the eternal life and we are here only to do God’s will. Don’t worry about tomorrow, worry will never change it. Let us not be presumptuous, God decided tomorrow years ago.”
The prayer above is from Terry Modica’s book Daily Prayers with the Saints.
