June 4 – Saint Quirinus


listenMighty Jesus, Saint Quirinus (d.c.308 or 310) was ordered to sacrifice to pagan gods, and when he insisted that the gods were really demons, he was severely beaten and thrown into the river with a millstone tied around his neck.  Since he’s the patron saint for people who are victims of obsession, possession and battles against evil spirits, I ask him to pray mightily for all those in this world who are under the influence of the powers of darkness.  If there are any evil spirits harassing me or seeking the ruin of my soul, I ask him to intercede for me that I may be fully protected by Your victory on the Cross, O Lord.  Saint Quirinus, pray for us.  Amen.

Blessed Mary E. Hesselblad (1870-1957)
Feast day June 4

quoteDear Lord, I do not ask to see the path. In darkness, in anguish and in fear, I will hang on tightly to your hand, and I will close my eyes, so that you know how much trust I place in you, Spouse of my soul.”

quoteThe Lord has called us from different nations, but we must be united with one heart and one soul. In the Divine Heart of Jesus we will always meet one another and there we’ll seek our strength to face the difficulties of life.”

quoteWe must nourish a great love for God and our neighbors; a strong love, an ardent love, a love that burns away imperfections, a love that gently bears an act of impatience, or a bitter word, a love that lets an inadvertence or act of neglect pass without comment, a love that lends itself readily to an act of charity.”


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