July 28 – Saint Samson

Saint Sampson

listenFather in Heaven, Saint Samson (c.485-565) was a holy monk who exceeded those around him in spiritual maturity.  When he met some Irish monks whose spiritual education was more advanced than his own, he went with them to Ireland so he could learn from them while he served at their side.  I ask him to pray for my own opportunities to learn how to grow in holiness.  Show me, O Lord, the books, the classes, and the retreats that would be good for me.  Bring into my life people who are more advanced spiritually than I am, so that I can learn from their wisdom and experiences.  Saint Samson, pray for me.  Amen.
