Gracious God, Saint Romaric (d.653) was a nobleman who became a Christian and converted his estate into a monastery. Many people were attracted to the holy life he established there and they came in droves to join him. I ask him to intercede for the religious communities and lay apostolates that have formed in the Church. As people realize that the immorality and luxuries of this world fail to satisfy their souls, guide them to join communities that forsake these things for a life of simplicity, service, charity, and prayer. O Lord, inspire me and my loved ones to separate from the world in the way we live. Saint Romaric, pray for us. Amen.
