February 22 – Saint Peter the Apostle


Lord Jesus Christ, You gave Saint Peter the Apostle his name to signify that he was the rock upon which You would build Your Church.  I ask him to pray for our pope, bishops, priests, deacons, religious brothers and sisters, ministers, and laity who are in positions of Church leadership.  Help them to grow in holiness, shepherding their flocks in humility and generosity as You did.  Teach us to be rocks of faith like Saint Peter.  Give us a strong love and a compassionate heart.  Protect us from the temptations of legalism, power and status.  Anoint us to be servants of Your love, in everything we do.  Saint Peter the Apostle, pray for us.  Amen.
