February 21 – Saint Peter Damian


O Holy Spirit, Saint Peter Damian was a professor who became a monk and actively fought corruption.  I ask Saint Peter to intercede for all the teachers of our children and the college professors of our young adults.  Make them sensitive to the falsehoods that corrupt the soul and give them a desire to teach only what is good.  Lead them into a closer friendship with You and a stronger understanding of Truth.  Give them what they need to build our youth into happy, healthy, holy adults who will make the world a better place while serving the Kingdom of God in partnership with You.  Saint Peter Damian, pray for us.  Amen.

Quote for Today

Saint Peter Damian (1007-1072)
Benedictine Monk, Doctor of the Church

quoteHow do you (Mary, Mother of Mercy) appease the anger of our Judge when He is on the point of punishing us for our offenses! All the treasures of the mercy of God are in your hands. Ah, may it never happen that you should cease from doing us good: you seek but the occasion of saving all sinners, and of bestowing mercy upon them.”


The prayer above is from Terry Modica’s book Daily Prayers with the Saints.
