August 2 – Saint Peter Julian Eymard

Saint Peter Julian Eymard

Dear Father, Saint Peter Julian Eymard served as spiritual director for seminarians.  As the founder of the Priests of the Blessed Sacrament, a religious order devoted to adoration of the Eucharist, the witness of his life inspired many to join the priesthood.  I ask him to pray for the seminarians and for those who have not yet responded to their true vocation.  Fill their hearts, O God, with a longing to be involved in service to the Church.  Help them to put aside the influences of the world.  Bring people into their lives who will help them have spiritual experiences that set them on fire for holy ministry.  Saint Peter Julian Eymard, pray for us.  Amen.

QUOTE by Saint Peter Julian Eymard

He loves, He hopes, He waits. Our Lord prefers to wait Himself for the sinner for years rather than keep him waiting one instant.
